If you mean positively affect yes. I don’t trust men who are clean shaven.

Does axe Phoenix body spray count?

Not if it's well-kept

I would hope not, but some people are dumb

Not in tech..

We had great candidates with blue and purple hair! All got hired. Some of the smartest people

No as long as you are tidy.

Long hair and beard - how much more tech can you get! Just that alone makes you look like a genius - rock on and slay it🤘

You are good. You would be peasantly surprised how casual tech is.

Yeah. It probably helps your chances

Honestly OP, it’s hard to say. Kinda depends on the role you’re applying for and the company/team you’re interviewing with

Honestly the grubbiest-looking people when I was in tech were the irreplaceable ones that knew how everything worked. Feels like it could be good signaling.
