Was it the gray hair that got her fired? Not even her hairdresser knows for sure, but that's what 52-year-old Sandra Rawline is claiming. She was relieved of her job as an escrow officer and branch manager at Capital Title of Texas just a few days after her boss asked her to color her gray hair.
Rawline says that she's been naturally gray since she was in her early 20s, and is comfortable that way. She didn't believe it was ever a problem until her boss told her the company was moving to a new, more upscale location, and she was asked to change her image with a new hair color, "younger fancy suits" and more jewelry, according to the Houston Chronicle. Rawline believed she was fine the way she was, and refused to comply.
