For many Black employees, battling workplace dress codes - official or unofficial - is part of everyday life. We are forced to choose between our career on the one hand, and our cultural identity and hair health on the other.

We’ve heard heartbreaking stories of Black people humiliated at work because our hair was deemed unprofessional, unruly, unkempt, a distraction to others.

That’s why we are working with employers and professional bodies to support them to adopt the Halo Code, the UK’s first Black Hair code.

The Halo Code explicitly protects employees who come to work with natural hair and protective hairstyles associated with their racial, ethnic, and cultural identities.

By adopting the Halo Code, employers are proactively taking a stand to ensure that no member of their community faces barriers or judgments because of their Afro-textured hair.

The Halo Code

For Workplaces

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.

We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps.

In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employees ability to succeed.
