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.

It shouldn't be and it's illegal to deny you a job because of your appearance anyways

I don't think it will be because of your hair because if you are going for a job in fashion - where people tend to make their appearance loud and stands out - it shouldn't affect their first impression of you. Maybe if you do feel it is that you could make it look really really neat and tidy, but don't change your hair... More
