Should I get dreads when I'm in the hospitality industry? DOES IT MATTER?!
My previous discussions are about a year ago. Oh time flies, yet I still find dreadlocks really pretty. :3
I actually had them at the beginning of the year at the bottom half of my head for a month plus, but due to dandruffs, I took them out.
I'm thinking of getting them back. BUT, I'm in my first year of college studying Hotel Management. When we first enrolled, the lecturers had told us how we should present ourselves and that is "no having weird fancy hairstyles". Plus, I'm from Malaysia where many people are not so openly minded yet and will think dreads are gross. I have friends who knew I was doing it, and many gave faces. My cousin brother even said if he were to see me with that hair he might consider giving me a penny or two. How rude!
If there are any dread heads who works in the hospitality industry on this site, it would help a lot to answer this thread of mine.
I just don't think I should change what I like and what I want for a job. I mean, yes a job is important, simply more important than my hair. But I just feel so restricted, people shouldn't judge us on what we look like rather what we can offer them.
