As for make-up -- this is absolutely a personal choice. I consider myself
very professional, popular with middle school students, and haven't worn
makeup for 20 years! In addition, asking a person to wear makeup raises
some gender issues, in my opinion. As far as hair, as long as it is neat,
combed, and clean, that's also really all you can ask.
