Depends on the city and the client, IMO. I feel like I can't see anyone having a huge issue with it unless you were with a super hardcore conservative client or something... Our whole thing is about being truly human

My office is very, "be yourself", but we tend to button up more when we are at client sites. We have loads of pastel coloured hair (just had blue highlights done yesterday), last week we one of our cyber guys who does drag on the weekends was wearing stiletto boots (he looked great), definitely an "artsy can also be professional" vibe at ours. And tattoos are part of our culture here, so nobody, even clients, bat an eye.

Doesn’t count

Our team is full of fun hair and tats. That being said, we are the “crazy digital creatives” within Bain, so that probably adds to our client credibility ...

All in balance of course and still looking, and acting, professional.

Not is a true “startup” hub with unique roles so I’m seeking remote roles. There are plenty that are remote but my concern is truly being able to make an impact in a mid-senior role being remote?
