NOT AT ALL. You'll look great and feel great. I've had a long beard, mustache, zero fade haircuts and no one has ever said a DAMN thing....actually, a partner told me once that he lived vicariously through me because of my beard. Be yourself and do whatever you want. People appreciate that.

If you have to ask the question, you already know the answer. I've seen zero people with hair dyed a non-natural color in this profession.

Yes, unfortunately it will. If you want something different, go for something subtle, but an ombré with blue highlights will seem too juvenile and like you're getting ready for Coachella. Subtlety is key. You can do a wild color if it was peek-a-boo highlights, or even a color underneath.

Depends on your client and team... I've been considering it as well but I think our side's leadership on this project is a little too buttoned up for that so if I color I might have to go for a more "natural" color

OP if you have dark hair, and dark blue highlights, you may be able to pull it off. I'd have to see it. I know it's lame, but we are expected to look a certain way. Anyone can have hair that's a different, tattoos, etc, but it's a careful balance to still look professional. You may be one that can do it. Maybe start with some clip in or extension pieces to see how it goes first, before you commit.

I once had pink dust from a color run stain my blonde hair for three weeks and it was a big deal at work. I had to explain over and over again how it happened and that I was trying to strip it out. Clients made comments. Don't do it.

For more context, I'm a brunette and I'm thinking of a dark blue. Not a neon color.

I've seen it in our studios OP, it's somewhat normal for creative types. Done tastefully you'll be OK. I've been rocking a beard for awhile and DGAF.

Is it racist if I ask what your skin tone is? I feel like that'd have something to do with it...

Yes unless ur a subcontractor for deloitte they can do whatever they want for what we pay them haha

I've seen a Partner with pink hair. I was shocked and amazed
