Hooters makeup guide

Give a Hoot, Makeup-Wise

I have never eaten at Hooters before, mostly because "sexy" restaurants rub me the wrong way. Still, I can't stop looking at this makeup guide for Hooters servers. Did you know that the look of the Hooter Girl is "clean, healthy, natural and vibrant"? It's true. The funny thing is, for as tacky as the outfits can be, the makeup guidelines are pretty good!

For instance:

  • Orange faces and necks that appear to be a different color are not attractive! (italics theirs)
  • Always make sure to resist makeup trends that make you appear gaudy.
  • Do not clump your eyelashes with mascara. One to two coats of most mascara is more than enough.

The only bizarre part about this is the emphasis on looking natural and wholesome. Since when has Hooters been all about that?

Some of them follow the rules because not all the girls are orange. (Like their shorts)

they want to go for that "all-american natural beauty" look. My friend used to work there and she said they were NEVER even allowed to have their hair up no matter how sweaty and hot they got running around...everyones hairstyle and makeup had to be exactly the same. Also, they ALL wore the same size outfit..tight shirt and spandex shorts...all in ONE size..no matter what size you wore, you fit into that small spandex outfit...my friend was a small so she fit fine, but she said that she had a few coworkers who weren't a small but had to squeeze into a small anyways. Weird rules if you ask me...

I saw MTV's episode of 'True Life: I'm moving to Las Vegas' and a model want-to-be ends up working at Hooters. They made her try on the outfit as part of her interview — just making sure that she's "wholesome" I guess...

I HATE hooters wings... I seriously have had better from the freezer aisle. They are too bready and uber greasy

Wow, who knew that I'd be tempted to send some of the Hooters makeup pointers to some of my overly made up friends? I won't, of course, but what a great find.

I went to Hooters *once* and asked if the chocolate cake had a lot of milk in it because I can't have milk. The Hooters Gal assured me that it didn't then brought me chocolate cheesecake without the whipped cream. Sigh. I can't say I left thinking about their makeup.

We have a Hooters here where I live and I've been there twice...unfortunately they don't seem to follow this guidebook ALL of the waitresses are Orange and wear heavy Eye makeup some of them are pretty and have a more natural look but for the most part they all look like skanks I've never been to another Hooters outside of my city so I can't say much about any of those but ours has trashy girls and I know a few of them outside of their work and they are skanks as well

I've never been to Hooters, but it seems like such a tacky place... and they are worried about makeup??? I guess I would go once to try the wings.

hooters is not all that it's cracked up to be. how do i know? i worked there. all of the girls are students pursuing some of the most amazing things like business, microbiology, biochemistry, engineering and physics. pretty much, the craziest stuff that you would NEVER expect. i'm actually a pre-law student with every aspiration to go to harvard for grad school. with that being said, most (and i say most) of us are really just trying to put ourselves through college. really rude people have asked me "why don't you find a more respectable job?" my response to that was always, with the cost of tuition today, working at the mall of $6-7 an hour isn't possible, and also, respect is relative because it takes a lot of disrespect to put down someone's job. the only reason that i left hooters is because of the amazing connection's that i've made there. after waiting on one of the top 50 lawyers in the nation, she, yes, SHE offered me an internship! oh and makeup_love, there are three hooters in australia, and one coming soon to new zealand!

Hehe. There is a Big Pecker's in Ocean City, MD and I've been there. (Boyfriend took me, I didn't go thinking it was the male equivalent of Hooters.) It's just a burger joint. Sadly, they have both men and women working there and the guys are not in tight jeans or speedos. What a rip-off! XD Frankly, I want my servers (and cooks and hosts, etc.) clothed. Unless I've specifically gone to see strippers (bleh...male strippers are not the same as female..unfair) I don't care to notice your abundance of bare skin (tights or not) anywhere near my food. Asia84: I think most women who don't like it are just sick of the abundance of the objectification of women and the women who help perpetuate it. To msdyanelk: One can made educated guesses or a simple judgment call about anything being tacky (or whathaveyou) without experiencing it based on ads and info they've already digested.

I've never been there but just reading this thread is cracking me up. And seeing how well Hooter's does and reading Daisie's comment, I am thinking more and more about opening a place called "Packages" or maybe "Nice Buns" and only hire sexy Playgirl calendar types and make them wear speedos.. lol... and of course I'll have great wings! ;)

I've been to Hooters and will probably go back. Their food is pretty good. When I went before I went with a group of mostly male friends. Our waitress was terrible, she forgot about us, botched our orders, etc. They tipped just like they would tip any other terrible server regardless of clothing. And you could tell it made the girl angry. Like she thought just because she prances around in that outfit she will automatically get tips even if she doesn't do her job.

I like their wings. I agree with bellaressa, just don't go if you don't want to.

PrettyPear hit the nail on the head, IMO. I went to Hooters once (against my will). The wings aren't that great, and I don't care enough about other women's boobs to go back. No matter your opinion on their operation, though, you have to admit it's one hell of a smart business model.

I have been to Hooters a number of times. To me its just a place to eat. I have no idea why some women are bad mouthing these women. If you don't like Hooters don't go. These women are working to make a living. They wear the uniform just as a flight attendent does; theirs is just a little less.

I think some of the Hooters girls at the Hooters near my workplace (I've been, I like the wings and the shrimp) need to follow these guidelines a bit more closely...hee hee :) Actually most of them just need a good foundation lesson. The whole "orange face/pale neck" thing isn't a good thing on anyone.

oh and you dont need to go to hooters to label it tacky, just to clarify.

I'm from Australia and we don't have Hooters, which doesn't really bother me I'm not sure I would go there anyway, but I think it is good they are not being told to put on lots of makeup. I personally think that natural look is the best way to go, My friend works in the revlon section of a store and is told to put on her makeup heavily :S
