    Some food for thought here. While there is a 'business look' some places take it to the extreme where people look like clones of one another. It's also pretty disheartening when you talk to an employee in an agency/business and you feel as though you are imposing on their time. There can be this 'shallowness' or 'beauty bias' that permeates some businesses. Where are the characters? - never mind the looks, but who add a carring dimension and often make your day. Maybe there is some truth in that what you don't have in looks you must develop in character. I certainly which one I would prefer.
