» In case you didn't know already, Hooters is a terrible organization that requires the women that work there to work really fucking hard to look "perfect" or risk losing their job.
Some fun snippets from their requirements:
“The Hooters Girl Look is clean, healthy, natural and vibrant.
Makeup should appear natural to best accentuate your features. Use soft natural colors on eyes, cheeks, and lips. Browns, pinks and neutral are all appropriate choices.
We do require that you wear mascara and lipstick or gloss. Remember, you never know when there will be a camera in your face!
Wear lipstick or gloss, making sure to refresh the application throughout the day as needed.
Always make sure to resist makeup trends that make you appear gaudy. Hooters Girls have an appropriate image to maintain.
Never come to work with wet hair! Even if your hair looks good when it dries naturally, we do not consider that styled and camera ready.
Style your hair the way you would when going out on a big date or when preparing for a photo shoot.
Use the best, not the cheapest, styling products. You will actually save money if you buy what you know works, rather than try every new product that claims to do what you want them to do.
Get your hair cut every 6 to 8 weeks, or as recommended by your stylist.
Wear the right hair color for your skin tone.
Skunk-like streaks are not permitted. A natural and styled look is the look you are going for.
Roots should never show through! You never know when you will be photographed or asked to go on a photo shoot or promotion. Be sure to always look camera ready!
Use products that add volume to thin hair, tame flyaway or bushy hair.
The shape of your face dictates the shape of your hair. Just follow these simple “shape” rules:
HEART-SHAPED: Heart-shaped faces with low hairlines are best suited by wavy ’40s styles with curls, side parts, center parts and bobs.
LONG-SHAPED: Long faces with high cheekbones look better with hair that doesn’t smother the face or hang sloppily down the face. Go for fuller hair at the crown, or see if bangs help proportion your features. Longer hair should be kept full with volume, but not round.”
And there’s a lot more. In other words, you better look damn perfect to work there. Also, the friend that pointed this out to me also told me that she read an article about two women who worked there that are (I think) suing for being terminated for not losing enough weight fast enough. They already lost some, but apparently not enough for Hooters standards.
God, I hate this place.
