The Hairstyles Abercrombie Has Deemed 'Unacceptable' For Employees Published: September 4, 2013

Abercrombie, the teen retailer for which image is everything, has very specific guidelines for employees' hair.

A source tells BuzzFeed they have been enforced strictly recently, adding to the pressure of the brand's "Look Policy Guidelines" on store associates.

"We realize that the manner in which you style your hair is highly personal and subject to your own tastes and preferences," Abercrombie said in an internal "Hairstyle Sketchbook" intended for store employees, dated Aug. 29, 2013. "While we respect your individuality, it is important that we maintain a consistent level of dress and grooming that represents what people expect from the Abercrombie & Fitch brand."
