    You don't say what style you wear your hair in, it's length or specific objections she had, so that makes it hard to give specific advice. (not sure if that's really you, most people here don't use real photo's)

    First I would check your facilities policies related to dress code and appearance, to make sure you are not in violation.
    Second I would make sure there is no problems with your hair draping onto a sterile field, in a patients face or in a "dirty" area. So if it's long, tie it back while on shift.

    Years ago when I was in LPN school, we weren't allowed to have our hair even touch our collars. While I don't know of any facility that is that strict anymore, but the general idea of keeping it out of the way could still pertain.

    If you are within code, then I would followup with her about the policy. I'd ask her to clarify in what way are you not meeting the facilities expectations (make sure its the facilities not hers). Just be careful of your tone while your talking so you can't be mistaken as insubordinate. Maybe if you can agree that your look follows code then she'll back off.

    96 sets assorted and 10 royal blue 10 whites tops and pants not pictured. Funny thing is I haven't worn them in a few years now that I'm in primary care.

    I did it! Kept some on top but I really like how the fade turned out. Hope they don't think it too fancy. Also got rid of my facial hair. I hope people like it. I sure do!

    As someone who completed a portion of my schooling with active "health problems" due to being shot seven times and having PTSD, if someone has a health problem, yes, it can be a struggle; some have stronger resiliency and some may not be in that journey yet.

    People thinking health problems are BS, to me, is offensive, especially if you are not enduring with constant pain or anxiety of the day to day struggle to survive.

    Why not just wear a scrub cap (like in OR) when you're working? Then you can wear your hair how you like the rest of the time.

    (BTW -- it's "rumor" -- just so you know.)

    And unit gossip just sucks.... sorry about that.

    As someone who is a supporter of natural hair, I find it irksome that your manager would push you to cut your hair as opposed to tie it back. Why cut? Why not just tie back and make sure it is off the collar? I dunno, but this raises my hackles a bit. I would check the official policy on hair and dress code, and go from there.
