tell him to fuck off! rude.
Not when it effects business. If a business has certain guidelines for appearance of their employees, and said employee is not in line with those standards, upper management Is in the right to ask the employee to change their look. If I hire someone with brown hair and they show up on their first day with blue hair, that doesn't fly.
42- as an employee who works with customers, you are the face of the business. If your "look" doesn't align with what the business is going for, it is in their right to ask you to make a change. You can have your hair any way you want. You can get a tattoo on your face. But don't get upset when your company no longer wants you to be the face of their business. It's the same thing as your attire. If I went to work without a tie on, I would be spoken to at the very least. I'm ok with that because I understand that my company prides itself on professional clean cut mid-managers.
In Canada it is pretty easy to find a McJob. Maybe she has a good job and wants to keep it. If she can fix her hair, she should. If she cannot, she should get a doctors note saying there is a medical reason for her hair being like that and give it to her employer. Then she is protected against firing because she has a "disability that affects her work".
Now I'd like to know what your hair looks like...
Yes. Telling your boss to fuck off is always a good idea, especially when he made a suggestion to improve business. Want to know a better idea? Telling an idiot commenter to fuck off.
