3 hairstyle tips for young professional women
How should a professional woman comb her hair? There is no single precise answer to this question. Beyond individual preferences, the appropriate hairstyle depends on many factors, most importantly, the nature of your work. The job description of the chosen profession has a great influence on how a woman should do her hair. But other factors also come into play, such as your other social roles and personal goals. Sometimes these factors have conflicting demands on her. For example, a woman may be an event planner who may need a long glamorous hairstyle, but she is also a new mom whose baby likes to grab her hair. Choosing the right hairstyle is making a compromise for all the conflicting factors and still having a confidence-boosting outward appearance. The following tips will help you choose the right professional hairstyle.
Tip No. # 1: redefine your job description
To be successful in her career and remain fashion savvy, a woman must examine her job description from the stylists point of view. Regardless of a woman’s profession, her hairstyle should help her appear more attractive. Unfortunately, some women may not see the need to comb their hair or may be forced by their job to get caught up in an unattractive hairstyle.
For example, a woman working in a laboratory will wear a bulky lab coat, along with protective gloves and goggles, and sometimes ear muffs and a gas mask. Your job description demands that you keep your hair out of the way. Therefore, she has her hair tied up in a severe bun. What if your lab research finally turns up results that deserve media attention? She couldn’t leave her lab looking like an overworked scientist talking into beakers. Instead, your stylist would suggest a short sleek hairstyle, perhaps a sleek hairstyle. Your hair will still be out of the way as you pour slimy sludge into a jar, but when you remove your coat, glasses, and mask, you will look like a confident celebrity stepping out of a fashion magazine. Simply put, you can think like Einstein, but you don’t have to look like him.
Tip No. # 2: don’t forget the basics
Now that you know you don’t have to get sucked into stereotypes and preconceptions tied to your profession, you will find a wide variety of hairstyles that you will be tempted to try. This is when your Einstein-like thinking is needed. Not all of these hairstyles will suit you. You must remember all the laws, both scientific and aesthetic.
When it comes to hairstyles, the ones that will show off your best features will be the ones that are appropriate for your face shape. For example, an oblong-shaped face couldn’t get away with extremely long hair, and the square-shaped face couldn’t benefit from a cropped bob. The aesthetic law that hairdressers adhere to faithfully is to have hairstyles that create illusions. For example, a medium length layered hairstyle will create an illusion of length and narrowness for women who have round face shapes.
Tip No. # 3: strive for ageless style
Another factor to consider when choosing hairstyles is your age. This does not mean that you need a hairstyle that reflects the fashion of the year you were born. It means that your hairstyle must meet, to some extent, the social expectations of your age. For example, when you are in your forties, don’t be tempted to have green highlights or asymmetrical cuts. If you really wanted highlights, go for the more subtle colors. And if you really want to copy Victoria Beckham’s sleek bob, make a commitment to a longer length or a less radical angle.
Does this mean that older women have a more limited hairstyle selection? In contrast, older women have more freedom with hairstyles. When you are in your forties, you can get away with many things. But you must remember to appear more elegant than elegant, and to appear crafty rather than obtuse.
If you are in your twenties, you can still copy many of the trendiest hairstyles, even those that are considered extreme. But you still have to consider the nature of your work. For example, if you are in the insurance business, you want your hairstyle to encourage your clients to trust your professional skills. That is, you don’t want your clients to think that you are too young for your job.
