    I interviewed for the current job (8 years ago) in the extra awkward loc stage. Creative pinning and a headband and I felt good. I got the job. I never had an issue with looking unprofessional as my locs were growing. I had locs for 7 years and I also got the same comments she mentions (I love you're braids….)

    i just loc'd my 10 year olds hair about 6 months ago. getting a job later never crossed my mind, she wanted to get it done and i let her. by the time she enters the job market she will be able to do whatever she pleases with her locs, be it an updo, ponytail, bun…i am not worried because her intelligence and personality will be what they focus on, not her hair!

    I like that Franchesca…I subscribe to her channel :). Her hair is always on point and as with any way one wears their hair, natural, locs, wigs, weaves, relaxers, it's how you maintain your hair for optimal results. Which plays a part in our appearance and getting that job. I know MANY successful Woman wearing beautiful locs. At the end of the day, can you do the job and do it well :).
