Long hair for men in sales

Thanks to the pandemic I’ve evolved from a hard part fade to a (semi) full head of luscious locks. Whenever I’ve been on camera, I’ve been able to pull the hair back so prospects haven’t been able to see the full flow. Sales bros with long hair, has this ever hurt you in the past?

Long hair for salesmen?

I'm okay that he looks like that because it's an awful look on him. I would be more angered if he was a good-looking dude.

Dudes with long hair is strange to me. When I say long I mean past shoulder length.

If you're selling into traditional verticals like finance or legal it won't work in your favour. Grassroots non profits or millennial tech bros won't give a damn.

I´m all for being yourself and do what you want as long as the results are good.

But sometimes you have to look the part. So I think it depends who you´re selling to.

Like always the answer is it depends :D

I think as long as it is clean and maintained, why not!

My hair is about mid-back when straightened, but curly so it sits between my shoulder blades. I keep it clean and it has caused no issues lol. No issues anywhere thankfully, yet.

I'm gonna say as long as you're clean you should be fine.

I feel like if you're Asian you look super cool. All the cool Asians have long hair. Justin Kan. Farokh.

It's 2021.  Be you, everyone else is taken, is how I look at it. 
Does the person with the long hair solve my problem more comprehensively than the person with short hair? Who cares then, right?

Why the downvote?  I was being honest. I think the term 'professional,' or how we view it, could stand to be broadened a bit.  I remember when it was really a no-no to have visible tattoos, as an example.  Over time, people began to realize that presence or absence of tattoos had no real bearing on results and/or outcomes.  My point, is that eventually-most physical appearance type traits will go the way of the tattoo (within reason, of course).
