First, I'm glad that you are thinking about the importance of professionalism in preparation for your interview. Second, shave away! If cutting off your thinning locks makes you feel more confident, by all means go for it. While you are smart in recognizing that there are certain faux pas that make recruiters cringe, a shaved head is not one of them. If you are still uncertain, look to some of the top business leaders such as Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos or bestselling author Seth Godin – these men are both shaved bald, respected and successful.
