The beard should not matter.  But people making hiring decisions form gut decisions very quickly and have unconscious biases that unfortunately can impact their perceptions of a candidate.  I'd always recommend to play it as safely and as conservatively as possible.  Unless you are applying for a role in a company you know rocks an alternative vibe (Seattle technology incubator, for instance, in which case by all means leave the blue hair)

That's the one thing I really miss from Highschool/college.  Electric blue hair.  It was amazing!
