I think you must be right. I remeber reading a flight attendant's blog (now defunct) in which she said the job didn't allow her to highlight her hair. She did work for Singapore Airlines until sometime last year. Besides this goes against the 'traiditional Asian image' the Airline likes to portray.

Plavt.


My girlfriend went for the interview some time last year, but didn't make it for the 2nd round. Apparently, one of the girls in her group had streaks of blonde (ah lian style) but she presented herself well and got through to the following round.

So I'm still unsure if I should blacken my hair or maybe get one of those temporary black sprays just for that interview.

Like you i had my application sent in after the stipulated dateline. It was on the 18th Dec...much earlier than yours. Reason? Mail got bounced back.

And yeah... no replies from the airline from my side as well. Probably the picture sucked.

Try harder.

best,

My interview slot is on the 8th, at 9.40am. Like many others, I have edit my pics with photoshop before submitting. I have bad skin but i'm gonna cover it up with the wonders of make-up.

Plus, i highlighted my hair a couple of days before receiving the invite. So i'm just gonna go on with my coloured hair, add tons of confidence, and see how it goes..

Good luck to everyone!

i agree....:D
why not get urself prepared by appearance first as they are not recruiting everday and its not easy to send in ur application and get the invite in the first place, since u had the chance why not do whatever u can to strike an impression forst. Unless ur desire to be landed in the career aint that strong..cheers!
