Dreadlocks and Professionalism

So, I have long hair. I have wanted dreadlocks for a long time, but working in gastronomy, I have always been discouraged to do it. In fact having the long hair has always been an issue as it is. It's just, should I always live my life for other people, when I really haven't been doing that as it is? I have been doing work where I have to meet people personally to propose work.

I have never judged anyone on their appearances before. In fact, I normally feel more comfortable about people who express a strong impression about themselves(goths, punks, office geeks) because from my experience they have been the kindest of people. But I don't normally deal with these kind of people. I deal with business/office professionals. My hair at this point is about mid way down my back. If I don't get dreds, I will probably cut it almost half way down. I would never normally come to a forum to ask something like this, but, because it might impair my future income, I thought more information is never a problem.

But, if you were to meet someone with clean dreds, the real taken care of type, could that impair your ability to trust or believe in their value, even if they have strong references?

Thanks for any input.
