Hi! I'm 21 years old and I'm in my last year of nursing school - graduating in May 2020. I'm mixed race (Black and some white), and currently have in braids like the picture I attached (this is not me, this is a picture I got off Pinterest ). I wear these because my hair is super thick and curly, and braids like these help my hair to be more manageable, and help my hair grow. I have gotten braids consistently for about 1 year now. Nobody has said anything to me in Clinical as of yet. I wear the braids up and out of my face for clinical, and obviously keep my hair and the braids clean. Since I will be starting to go on interviews soon, I was wondering if braids like these are considered professional - especially for a new grad looking to be hired. Would wearing braids like these stop me from getting my first job?
Thank you for reading!! All opinions welcome 🙂
