Abercrombie & Fitch’s Strict Hair Policy REVEALED

September 4, 2013 by Tracey Wallace

Abercrombie & Fitch is back in the news, and yet again–it’s not good. The company, who formerly denounced overweight customers, has been exposed for enforcing strict ridiculous hairstyle policies on employees, in an effort to maintain “what people expect from the Abercombie & Fitch brand.” (Oh, you mean douchebaggery?)

BuzzFeed got their hands on a top-secret internal “Hairstyle Sketchbook” that bans “unnatural” or “extreme” dye jobs, hair cuts and styling among employees:

From what we can tell, anything ombre or two-tone is out. Also, any highlights that appear in block format, or that are basically larger than what the sun would naturally highlight, are not allowed.

Employees who no longer fit within the new brand standards are sent home, even if their look was previously appropriate according to the old employee handbook.

Makeup and nail polish must also look natural according to the “Look Policy Guidelines.” Employees are asked to ask a manager about what is or is not considered natural looking makeup and nail polish if they have any questions or concerns.

For a company that cares so much about it’s image, Abercrombie isn’t doing much to get us to like them. Sound off in the comments below: Abercrombie’s hair policy–within reason or ridiculous?
