#BeautyBias - hair

We all know society has very set ideas of what it means to be beautiful – and it goes far beyond what we can control. Height, weight, hair, age, looks: all these things factor into how we perceive a person’s beauty. But most importantly, these outside factors affect how we judge people on the inside, too – and the effects go deeper than you might think.

We’ve teamed up with Broadly to create a series of films that delve into how beauty standards and bias affect every aspect of our lives, from our careers to our social lives. Check out the films below and let us know: what does #BeautyBias mean to you?

Beauty standards of hair are a form of bias #BeautyBias

Classy, unprofessional, creative, unintelligent – there are so many ways to interpret a woman’s hair. For many of us, it’s the first thing we notice about a person – and without knowing it, the first thing we judge them on. But how does this affect us in real life? Does having blonde hair mean you make more money? Does big hair mean you’re more creative? Broadly’s Kettie Jean discovers how length, volume or texture of your locks can influence how people see and treat you.
