How should a professional woman style her hair? There is no single accurate answer for this question. Beyond individual preferences, the appropriate hairstyle depends on many factors, most importantly, the nature of her job. The job description of her chosen profession has a great influence on the way a woman should style her hair.
But other factors also come into play, such as her other social roles and her personal goals. Sometimes, these factors have conflicting demands on her. For example, a woman might be an event planner who may need a glamorous long hairstyle, but she is also a new mom whose baby likes to grab her hair. Choosing the right hairstyle is achieving a compromise for all conflicting factors and still having a confident-boosting outward appearance. The following tips will be useful in helping you choose the appropriate professional hairstyle.
Tip #1: Redefine your job description
To be successful in her career and still be fashion-savvy, a woman must examine her job description from the point of view of hairstylists. Regardless of a woman’s profession, her hairstyle should help her appear more attractive. Unfortunately, some women may not see the need for styling her hair or that her job forces her to be stuck in an unattractive hairstyle.
For example, a woman who works in a laboratory will be wearing a bulky lab coat, along with gloves and goggles, and sometimes, with earmuffs and a gas mask. Her job description demands that she keeps her hair out of the way. Thus, she has her hair pulled back in a severe bun. What if her laboratory research finally yields results that are worthy of media attention? She couldn’t emerge from her laboratory looking like an overworked scientist who talked to beakers. Instead, her hairstylist would suggest a short stylish hairstyle, perhaps a chic bob. Her hair will still be out of the way while she pours slimy sludge into a flask, but when she removes the coat, the goggles, and the mask, she would look like a confident celebrity stepping out of a fashion magazine. Simply put, you may think like Einstein, but you don’t have to look like him.
