Paul Mooney says "if your hair is relaxed, then white folks are happy, if your hair is nappy they are not happy"
What are your thoughts of Afros and dreadlocks in the work place? Do you think it is professional or unprofessional? I am currently wearing an Afro and will be working as soon as I get certified. I will be(hopefully) working in an office setting. I read many articles about how African American hairstyles or perceived in the workplace. I need honest opinions ladies. Would you hire(if you were in a position) someone who had dreads or Afro?

I am an administrator in an urban school system. I have a short natural hair style, and had an afro until a couple of days ago. The administrator that I work under has Sisterlocks, and there are several administrators with locs, afros, and other natural hair styles. There are also several teachers (male and female) with dreads. As someone else said, as long as your hair is kept up, there shouldn't be a problem.
