    From what I've seen, in a lot of liberal areas companies are hesitant to enforce policies regarding hair styles, beard styles or clothing, out of fear of discriminating against someone's cultural or religious freedoms.

    This is one of those things where there is no right answer. It depends on the corporate culture, the location of the site and the mission of the security department. I have no problem with a bouncer having a beard. An EP officer protecting a pop star or an actor is going to have a goatee to blend in. On the other hand, if I walk into the Dewey, Cheatum and Howe Investment Firm to drop off my lottery winnings, I expect short hair, pressed suits and no facial hair.

    It is also a generational thing. American society as a whole has been influenced by the music industry and IT worker "slacker" look. And let's face it - if you want to keep your entry level workers for more than a month at your low wage, no benefit warm body co., you're probably going to ease up on the grooming standard, whether it is good policy or not. (And you can blame the movie "Friday" for the whole untucked shirt thing. Uggghhh.)

    No. Since when is bigotry tolerated?

    I have a beard and so does my supervisor but i make sure my neck is clean shaved and the beard is well trimed. I just cant stand the feel of it plus my hair grows back real fast by the end of the day i'd have a pretty heavy shadow going on anyways.

    I have been looking to get back into some type of security work at least part time but i grew a beard since i last worked in security. My wife loves the beard and doesn't want me to shave it unless the job was a really good one.

    High and tight with a very well kept goatee. Was too high and too tight at one point, my boss told me to get rid of the mohawk. I told him it was not a mohawk but a recon and is common in the marines. He didn't care. So a little less high now. Mustache alone looks obscene to me. Makes me think 70's prn.

    I wish that we were allowed goatees or anything besides my stach. Every LE dept in our parts are allowed to have facial hair, our boss is just really old school i guess. I would do anything to have my goatee or my Fu-manchu back. as long as they keep them trimmed and short, they still look good IMHO

    Hear hear.

    For myself, neatly maintained goatee and well-maintained hair. By which I mean mid-back length, clean, groomed, and either tied back in a tight tail or braided. One can look professional with long hair and a beard just as easily as clean-shaven with a high-n-tight; it takes maintenance, diligence, and a willingness to spend the time making yourself look professional, just like with clothing, footwear, carriage, or any other point of appearance.

    Oh, and I pity the next fool who tries to grab me by the hair. All the previous ones found out, to their rather pain-filled dismay, that trying to only accomplishes one thing: puts them within easy reach. And I know a whole boatload of different nerve pinches and joint locks that can really put a crimp into someone's day.
