    A lot of companies do it, it's no big deal.

    I wouldn't be comfortable with that either op.
    You can't judge a persons talent on their looks.
    For example some of the best hair dresses I have known have been the ones with unkept hair.

    I probably wouldn't think about it the way you are OP. Its pretty standard these days for businesses to put photos and intros up about their staff, especially if those staff will be dealing with clients.

    We've always done photos , on business cards , on web sites , on flyers on everything ! ( real estate) its more so clients can have recognition and for our profile and yes we have had some request female only salespeople ( usually older clients) the biggest problem we have now is that some staff want to use glamour shots!

    I like that idea sassy. What I would be looking for is say I wanted my eyebrows waxed I would look at yours to see of u had a thin line or thick and natural and pick based on what I want for myself.
    If I was coming to get my makeup done i would prob judge by yours.. Things like that .
    But also I would look at your history of what experience you have. I would be picking the one with most experience hands down. No matter what they looked like.. Unless caterpillar brows or something.

    It's the beauty industry. I think looks based judgments are par for the course.

    I tend to agree with Nancy Blackett in that look based judgements are part and parcel in beauty type industries, even though it is rather superficial as your skill set shouldn't be based on how you look of course.

    My beauty therapist is very heavily into the '40's pin up girl' style of make up and dress and has vintage tattoos and always has a cigarette in her mouth (as part of the 'look') in her advertisements and I often wonder how much clientele she would gain or lose from having her very distinct and strong look as part of her ad.

    Also agree with Nancy, the industry wouldn't exist if people weren't concerned about looks.

    Personally a beauty therapist needs to be someone I feel comfortable with as it is all very hands on. I know it's hard to judge someone from just one photo, but it would give me more confidence than just going into a salon and asking for whoever is free.

    I agree with PP that it's pretty normal these days, I've had my picture taken for work to be up on the wall to put a face to a name, I've also noticed it on many company websites.

    I can understand where you're coming from as the person whose photo is being taken, but as a customer I prefer when I can see a picture and read a bit about a person I'll be interacting with prior to meeting them. I agree also that if you notice a significant drop in customers you can always make an official complaint later.

    It's normal to me to see real estate agents, bankers etc with photos, but I'd be reluctant to have it done as a beauty therapist. I move a lot so am often looking for a new hairdresser and beauty therapist. I always go into the store to make an appointment at a new hairdresser and i honestly DO make a decision about a hair dresser based on what I see. Is the hairdresser well presented? Has she done her hair nicely? Does she have awful roots showing? I did judge once upon a time how "radical" their hairstyle was. If the had a purple Mohawk with shaved sides - I wouldn't want them doing my hair! That's changed these days, but unless the hairdresser has shiny, HEALTHY looking hair thats styled nicely - I go elsewhere.
