    Default Hair Dyes

    Does having your hair dyed a really crazy colour affect you getting an interview or affect your chances during the interview? I was going to redye my hair but I'm having second thoughts if it means it will affect my application in any way.

    Would you hire someone with a rainbow Afro to work in a government office?

    Unless you talk about your hair in your sop how are they going to judge your hair color before they see you at the interview?

    I don't recommend having your hair dyed crazy colors in general but certainly not at a job interview. I guess the exception might be that unnatural red that ladies sometimes get away with, or black or blonde when those are clearly not your natural color. But not like pink or blue or anything.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    In some applications you have to add a picture in the application so if that's not the case then that's my bad for assuming lmfao! That said, thanks for the advice!

    There are a few CIRs and ALTs with crazy hair cuts/colors. You can get away with it much more than you can visible non-earring piercings. Gov't offices generally will be more lax than a JHS as well. Maybe miamicord can elucidate a bit more on how much it will affect your application.

    Hello tobio! Im out recruiting right now so i apologize for not seeing this sooner.

    As far as your hair goes, the application has no place for a picture. The initial screening is supposed to be blind to avoid any chance of prejudice. However, if you provide your passport copy as your citizenship then we will see what you look like.

    If you do pass the initial screening, many consulates, like my own, require you to submit a picture for your interview voucher.

    That being said i always encourage people to come to their interviews with natural hair colors. Natural as in colors that you dont find in anime. When was the last time you saw a teacher rocking blue or green hair? Its true that you do find cirs or alts with funny colored hair, but those are people who are already in japan. Once you are there, and clear it with your BoE, you can have you hair any color that they approve.

    For the interview though, definitely be cautious. Come with a normal color hair. You dont want to miss your chance for jet just because you are feeling particularly expressive and individual on interview days. Interview panels are comprised of many kinds of people. Some are older and more traditional, others are younger and more liberal. The fact is, you wont know who will be in front of you until you walk into that room.

    Good luck!

    I saw two girls with purple in their hair during Tokyo Orientation. One said that she was able to hide it during the interview as it was just on the ends so she had some fancy bun hairstyle that day where it wasn't visible. I definitely suggest against it, but you could do just the ends and trim it off before the interview if you were offered one.
    I came here to laugh at you.

    It can absolutely work for you... if you do it right. Just follow Ini's advice to be sure:
