Appropriate Styles For Interviews

May 6th, 2012

One of the most important times in a person’s life is their first job search. Not those first-time jobs of working for a grocery store as a sixteen-year-old, but an actual job where you get a salary with benefits as an adult. Sometimes this is also the hardest part of someone’s life, not just the most important, especially in the economy we’re living in now. In order to get a good job that you’ll actually want, you must present yourself in the best way possible. This includes your outfit, hair, makeup, attitude and body language.

You never want to look like you’re trying too hard when you go to an interview. It’s hard to know what to do with things like hair and makeup so you won’t look like you tried too hard. Wearing too much makeup is a definite shut-down at a job interview. It makes the interviewer think you’re not taking the job seriously and that you just want to dress to impress; you don’t look like you actually care about the job. When it comes to the makeup, you should try neutral colors like light and dark browns for eyeshadow and maybe a little bit of eyeliner but only on the top lid; bottom lid eyeliner rubs off easily and makes you look sleezy. To maintain a professional look, highlight the colors of your skin, hair, and eyes by using browns and tans. It keeps everything subtle yet brings out a few of your beauty features.

Hair runs along the same lines. When you wear your hair certain ways, you tend to look not-so-professional to sugar coat it. You don’t need to wear too big of curls or use too much hairspray. When you can see a gluey texture to your hair, you know you’ve used too much hairspray. It looks very sloppy and not professional so take caution in the amount of hold you apply to a hairstyle. If you want to avoid sloppy looks with your hair, try doing styles like straightening your hair or light waves, but not curls. They look fun and cute for events like a date night or girls night out but for an interview, you want to keep attention on the job, not on your hair. If your hair is too big and distracting, you could steer the point away from getting the job. By using your hair straightener for straight strands or soft waves, you are creating a professional and mature look for yourself. The interviewer will think you are ready to take this job seriously and in turn your chances of getting the job will increase.

These are just a few things to remember when looking for a new job. It’s hard to get noticed, especially with the economy we face today. There’s not much time to keep going through interviews over and over so take advantage of these style tips; in the long run, they help so much. Simply by using a hair straightener, you can get an incredible job that you’ve always dreamed of. Just remember to dress and do your makeup professionally to match that great hair.
