Allow Starbucks Partners to have Unnatural Hair Color

Starbucks announced that it will permit partners to have unnatural hair colors -- pink, purple, blue, etc. Learn more, here:

I would like Starbucks to allow Partners to have unnatural hair color. I feel that compared to tattoos and piercings, it should be nothing.

The Policy states: "HAIR: Keep it looking natural- no bright or unnatural colors (purple,pink, blue,green). Pull long hair back with clips, hair ties or bands."

Why is this important?

The Starbucks mission statement is: "Our mission: to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time."

Starbucks is place where partners are unique and should be able to show their true selves. How are they going to do it if they can't color their hair how they want? Sometimes color shows the person's true self. Allowing tattoos and nose piercings was a good first step but now let's allow unnatural hair color.

Variety in a workplace is always great! Wouldn't you want to have some red, purple, green, or maybe pink in your hair?


Reasons for signing

  • I have an interview with starbucks and I would love to keep the bit of color I have in my hair while working for this company.
  • Starbucks inspires and nurtures the human spirit, and it should include our partners' freedom to express themselves and their personalities. Allow dyed hair! There are only benefits that can come from this freedom of expression, and our ability to feel comfortable in our own skin.
  • I don't see how colored hair will affect customer service.
