I'm starting student teaching soon and have a question about hair. I have pin-straight hair that I am not particularly fond of. Throughout all of college I have curled it at least 3 days a week (I would curl it every day if I had the time). I would like to continue curling it but I am worried about it not looking "professional" because of the way I curl it. I have long hair and a LOT of hair, and I favor rather "intense" looking curls. My curled hair usually looks a bit wild as a result ... This photo is a rough approximation: http://media.screened.com/uploads/0/5125/410757-serafina_pekkala_large.jpg Now if this were my natural hair I wouldn't be worried, but since I alter between straight and curly I am worried that my curly 'do would be seen as "unprofessional" because I am deliberately changing my natural hair into something unusual. (In my defense I will note that I do a very good job curling it, and if I curled it every single day then the hairstyle could absolutely pass as my natural hair.) Does anyone have any opinions? Not sure if I am being paranoid about this.
