Purple hair, don't care: Starbucks is giving its baristas a hipster makeover



Soon, your favorite Starbucks barista will be able to don denim and plaid, if they choose to.

The global beverage chain is revisiting its employee dress code and opting to give baristas more options in what they wear -- and even loosen restrictions on hair color to include "unnatural" colors like purple and pink.

According to Fortune, the signature green aprons aren't going anywhere, but Starbucks baristas in North America will soon be able to choose from among navy, grey and brown clothing colors along with traditional black, white and khaki hues.

The changes to the company's "Look Book" will impact some 150,000 employees.

Or, if you prefer, you can don a fedora.

The last time Starbucks made wardrobe waves was when it decided to allow employees with tattoos and nose piercings to let those be exposed.

"Our latest dress code changes are designed to work well with the green apron while expanding your options, providing more room for self-expression, and allowing you to choose from items that may already be part of your everyday wardrobe," CEO Howard Schultz said of the changes.

Purple hair, don't care.
