Is my red hair stopping me from getting a job?

I'm currently looking for a new job and I've had a few interviews which I think have gone really well. However I have yet to have a job offer. I have bright red dyed hair and I was wondering if this will have affected my chances of getting a job. I've mostly applied for assistant manager jobs in retail fashion along with a few in general retail. I am qualified for these positions.

It depends. Are we talking like Hayley Williams red or natural red hair? If it's natural, no. Your hair is not. However, most places do not allow unnatural colors in your hair. The Hayley Williams red is not a natural shade. Your best bet is to ask about dress code if this is the case.
