Asian female here. Hair is currently bleached blonde but I really want to go light pink. Is this a bad idea in consulting?

Maybe I am too conservative? But I think even if your firm allows it, it will give off a certain image. Depends on whether you are willing to have to deal with it or if you don't care. If you don't, more power to you! But personally I wouldn't.




Depends on your team and industry...I’m in financial services in NY and I can’t see that going well here, but if you work in fashion or tech I can see that working. Although ability shouldn’t be judged on appearance, we all know it will to a degree. Does anyone around you rock any tattoos, piercings, unnatural hair colors? If so and they’re doing well that could be an indication


Yep I'm in FS as well. Meh :(

If you’re asking you must have doubts. Trust your gut


Personally I don't care. I want to do it. But I don't want this to negatively affect me in any way professionally. Hence why I'm polling everyone if this is a good idea.


Sure. Go for it! As long as everything else is „according to standard“ (work, dresscode, communication and manners) I don’t see why not


There will always be some more conservative types who will consider it unprofessional, like MC1


Not judging! Just stating the fact. Whether or not OP wants to take that into consideration is their call.

With my TMT clients it wouldn’t be an issue. Other industries? Might be a problem.


Hell no. Don't do it!


Depends on the firm and your clients. I would go for it if I were you, but my company is pretty casual and our clients are used to that

I’m assuming your hair isn’t naturally bleach blonde so you are already rocking a “non traditional” hair style. Has it had a negative effect on you so far?

Nope. From black to blonde. No one blinked an eye


OP- what did you decide?

Didn't do it. Asked my direct team as a joke and everyone balked. Took that as a I guess I shouldn't... :(

Hi fishes. Does Optum HR use illegitimate methods to know a potential candidate's decision to join? For example calling the candidate disguised as TCS/Wipro HR asking details about current offers and active notice period.


I have 7 years experience as a QA engineer in networking domains,to be specific to WiFi/WLAN testing.
I started my career with a 6LPA package,after gaining 2.7 years experience,
Switched to Second company for 9.5LPA .
Switched to a 3rd company (currently working here) which is my dream company for 18.5LPA with a total experience of 5.11 years.
Though I'm happy with my work and company culture, I am not completely satisfied with the current 18.5LPA salary. I always have a feeling I'm underpaid.
