Is getting a haircut a valid reason for working from home in the afternoon?

And if not, what should I do instead?

Depends in part on the length and complexity of the haircut.

Shouldn’t need a reason for working from home for a single afternoon tbh

Exactly.

Saying you need to work from home to get your hair cut does seem weirder than just saying you need to work from home though, for some reason.

Say you’ve got the dentist obvs

And then when you come back into work the next day having obviously had a haircut, say they weren’t a very good dentist?

I always worry a hair cut will make people think I’ve got a job interview

Somebody is coming in late because they’re at their child’s Christmas concert*, in that context I think working from home is fine for a haircut.

*in the morning!?!?!

oh that sounds great, where is it?
