I've been trying to grow out my hair for three years straight and I may want or need to find a place of work soon. I've been told that long hair is not acceptable for either situations, but I've been told that long hair is acceptable as well. To me, it made the situation confusing.

I've also been...

I suspect that in the typical business environment, it's not the length of the hair that employers object to but that lack of control. Pull it back, put it up, use clips or barrettes, braid it, and keep it neat and tidy, so it doesn't swing into the work surface of whatever you do, and a decent employer will be fine with it.

One of our daughters has super long hair, half way down her thighs. When she was temping for very conservative businesses--the kind where you wear a suit and heels--they were fine with her hair pulled back in a long braid.

You don't have to like it. You don't have to accept it. You can rebel against it. By the same token they don't have to hire you either. Freedom of choice works both ways. Good luck.

I've always have long hair, while in the workplace, but it depends on the job. You wouldn't want LONG hair, if you work in the kitchen, or places where you work with machinery... It is not about the look, it's about your safety!

You can put your hair up, to look MORE mature, MORE SERIOUS, about getting hired, then when you've gotten the job, you can wear it however you like, according to their Dress Code.

If they don't hire you, where they only allow short hair, that's discrimination!

FOR GUYS, it is always better to dressed your best, meaning SHORT HAIR, clean-cut, you want to dress like you want the supervisor/manager position! In other words: Dress Smart! You'll have more chances to get hired, without beards, and no long hair (it makes you look like you've been out of work, and you let yourself go).

You can have long hair it just needs to be groomed and neat. For example slicked back in a pony tail, and that's for men and women. The interviewer likes to see your face and make eye contact and they can't do that if your hair is in the way

It is, usually. It all depends (for males OR females) how it's worn. If you have to keep tossing your head back to keep the hair out of your eyes, bad idea.
