Does your job have a dress code? What does it consist of?

Does it include hair, visible tattoos, foot ware, piercings?

When I did work in the office, it was very casual unless we were notified in advance of visitors in the office. 

but it didn't include hair (there were a lot of hair styles all over) tattoos or piercings (I had my eyebrow done until a few years ago)

The current dress code states to follow the dress code of the school district that we work in. The higher ups told us when our new contracts are in place we will have new guidelines for our dress code. Tattoos and body/facial piercings will have to be covered. Hair can not be unnatural colors. No flip flops or sandals. There may be a few other things that I don't remember. Our contracts have been out for over a year, teachers for over two, so I am not going to worry about any changes until we sign our new ones.

Hmmm, I do not know if there are official dress codes at my jobs, "professional dress" is expected and the norm. I don't know any co-workers with tattoos or piercings.

Must not look overweight? What if you are overweight?

There's some kind of a weight control program & sessions with a nutritionist. The person gets so much time to lose it.

Where do you work? I'm guessing it's somewhere that looks are extremely important

For CVS the dress code is business casual and closed toe flat shoe. You're not supposed to wear sneakers but everyone does.
