I've had my septum pierced as well as two other nostril piercings and all of them were allowed to be seen. I later dyed my hair as well and received no backlash whatsoever. When I was first hired, I was told that I was allowed to have my piercings as long as they didn't have offensive images or phrases on them.

I shop regularly at the Newburgh, NY location. I have seen employees with multiple piercings and tattoos. Also, one employee who is a supervisor now I believe has dyed pink hair.

I've been working for Petsmart for almost two years now and I have a septum piercing and both ears are stretched to 1" and none of the managers at my store have cared. A bunch of the salon stylists have piercings, including nose rings, and have had bright colored hair and that was OK with management too.

Like most companies these days, pretty much anything goes. Sad. If you work with the public, a professional appearance should be required. It's a shame that people even need to be told such things. Honestly feel sorry for all the people that feel such a need to draw attention to themselves.

My store leader didn't mind and neither did the ASL. In fact, the ASL complimented my pink hair. It depends on the store.

The one I worked at wasnt a fan. But, if youre not a manager, I don't think they will tell you to change it. Once I became manager I couldnt gauge my ears any bigger (7/16ths) and couldnt have an unnatural hair color.

Depends on the store. I was the only non-tatted, non-pierced, and natural haired person in the salon lol

They seem cool with colored hair (a manager I've seen has green hair) and ratios (i have a visible, tasteful tattoo on my arm). Not sure about piercings.
