A woman, who was told she had to change her pink hair color after she accepted a job offer came up with an ingenious way to deal with the problem.
Emily Benschoter, 29, from Georgia, has resorted to wearing a range of different dramatic wigs to work after being told that her hair color was against company policy.
When Emily secured a position in the hospitality industry, her new manager was unaware that her was pink becayse there was no face-to-face interview.
But when she turned up for her first shift, Emily soon found out that the company operates on a natural hair color only policy, according to Newsweek.
Now, Emily has shared her imaginative response on TikTok, and one viewer branded it her ‘favorite video ever’.

Emily explained that she was unwilling to dye her hair a more natural color for a position that is 40 hours per week.
She told Newsweek: ‘I am a self-expressive person and I feel very confident with pink hair so I came up with a solution to keep the job and my hair.’
The hospitality worker added that: ‘It’s dehumanizing that I can’t be accepted at face value because my hair is a non-traditional color. It’s so superficial that my hair color is an obstacle.’
Now, in a hilarious response, Emily opts for the tackiest wigs she can get her hands on to cover her hair.
In the TikTok video, Emily wrote: ‘My reaction to finding out I can’t have pink hair AFTER being hired?’ while showcasing her long pink locks.
Emily’s answer was: ‘Bad wigs’, as she blews a kiss towards the screen in an elaborate blonde mane.
Viewers on TikTok have been quick to share their thoughts on the video, and many have been left in stitches.
