I'm interested in changing my hair color to something a little outside of the norm, but I'm not 100% sure if it is ok for me to do so.
When I was still a temp working for the company, I had been hired with Blue/Purple hair. Within the first week someone who works for the client company had informed the temp Agency and had them contact me - I was told to dye it back to a normal color or I would be fired. No one from the client company talked to me directly for this.
The problem here for me is that I have seen countless people in the company with the same hair color as what I was made to change. An internal flier has even been released in the elevator hallways showing one employee with bright blue hair, and the company logo right above her.
I have now been hired on as a permanent employee for over a year now, and the number of sightings has only gone up.
My questions are along the lines of:
Was I only made to change my hair because at the time I was a new temp employee, thus more expendable? How do I go about finding out if changing my hair is a possibility for me(without repercussion)? How is it alright for certain people, but not alright for others, assuming that all involved in this question are non-client-facing individuals.
As a point of reference, I am no longer intending on Blue hair, but instead a 'technically natural' color, in white.
