Appearance & Dress Code

Over the years we've developed an appearance and dress code that is integral to the success of your position through Nightingale Staffing.

General Dress Code

  • No cell phones
  • No smoking on the property
  • Do not take food or drinks of any kind. They will provide food and drinks for you.
  • Do not wander off or disappear. Stay focused on your area while you are there. There’s nothing worse than the guest asking where their server went when they need something.
  • All uniforms must be kept clean and wrinkle free.
  • Be on time for your shift and do not “call out” unless it is an emergency
  • If makeup is worn, it should be applied in a blended manner and in appropriate, neutral colors.
  • No Earrings or other jewelry with exception of a wedding or commitment ring.
  • NO TATOOS SHOWING AT ANY TIME ON THE CUSTOMERS’ PROPERTY

Fingernails

  • Women: Fingernails should be clean. If polish is used, it should be an appropriate, neutral color. This includes deeper, richer shades of polish. Polishes that are not permitted include black, gold, silver, multicolored or neon. Charms or decals on fingernails are not permitted. Fingernails should not exceed one-fourth of an inch (approximately 6 mm) beyond the fingertip.
  • Men: Clean, presentable fingernails are a must. Fingernails should not extend beyond the tip of the finger.

Hairstyling (Women)

  • Hairstyling Hair should be neatly combed and arranged in a classic, easy-to-maintain style. Extreme styles are not permitted.
  • Hair below shoulder length should be confined if it falls forward over the face while working.
  • Conservative braided hairstyles without beads or ornamentation are permitted.
  • Hair products may be used to create a soft, natural hairstyle within these guidelines.
  • Shaving of the head or any portion of the head or eyebrows is not permitted.
  • Artificial hair is permitted if it looks natural and meets all of the above requirements.
  • We do not permit extreme haircoloring in dyeing, bleaching or coloring. If the hair color is changed, it must be natural-looking and well maintained. Subtle highlighting or frosting is permitted as long as it creates a uniform look over the whole head and meets all of the previously listed guidelines. 
 
Hairstyling (Men)

  • Hair must be neatly cut on the back and sides, forming a smooth, symmetrical appearance so that it does not extend beyond or cover any part of the ears or the shirt collar. The overall style must be neat, natural and balanced proportionally.
  • A shaved head is permitted, as well as a very short military-style cut. Shaving of the eyebrows is not permitted.
  • Conservative braided hairstyles for men without beads or ornamentation are permitted. They must be styled above the ears and cut above the collar and be neatly braided close to the scalp in straight rows.
  • Tucking hair behind the ears, or pinning or tucking it under a hat to conceal an unacceptable hairstyle, will not be permitted. Extreme or bi-level styles are not permitted.
  • Hair products may be used to create a soft, natural hairstyle within these guidelines.
  • Artificial hair is permitted if it looks natural and meets all of the above requirements.

Facial Hair

  • A fully grown in, well-maintained mustache is permitted, provided that it is neatly trimmed and does not present an unkempt appearance.
  • Mustaches must not extend onto or over the upper lip and must extend to the corners of the mouth, but not beyond or below the corners. Goatees that are well trimmed are acceptable in many server positions.
  • Aside from mustaches, Staff members are expected to be clean-shaven every day. Beards and any extreme mustache styles are prohibited.
