What Does “Professional” Hair Look Like?

I do not have a “professional” haircut. My mom chastised me for cutting my hair with the clippers again. She has made it known that she would prefer that I let my hair grow out, so that someone armed with scissors can take my money… and give me a professional-looking haircut. Professional-looking haircuts, those that professionals wear, cost money. Maybe some day I will have “professional” money, so I can afford a professional haircut.

Now I will probably be all self-conscious about my hair tomorrow during that interview. I suppose I could just wear a hat, to conceal my unprofessional-looking hair.


  • good luck on the interview!

  • Thank you for the well wishes. I don't want to say anything to the effect that it will turn out like all of the other interviews, which led to nothing, lest I jinx myself. Doh!

  • or maybe you just reverse psychologied yourself, and it will turn out smashingly.

  • I know what the point is in telling me that I don’t have a “professional” haircut and that I need a “professional-looking” coif. I guess I am of the (mistaken?) belief that close-cut hair is not too offensive, or “unprofessional” looking, and that the money savings outweigh the disadvantages of an “unprofessional” crop.
