3 hairstyle tips for young professional women
How should a professional woman style her hair? There is no single precise answer to this question. Beyond individual preferences, the appropriate hairstyle depends on many factors, the most important being the nature of one’s job. The job description of her chosen profession has a great influence on how a woman should style her hair. But other factors also come into play, such as his other social roles and personal goals. Sometimes these factors place conflicting demands on it. For example, a woman might be an event planner who might need a long, glamorous hairstyle, but she’s also a new mom whose baby likes to grab her hair. Choosing the right hairstyle means reaching a compromise for all the conflicting factors while maintaining a stimulating outward appearance. The following tips will be useful to help you choose the appropriate professional hairstyle.
Tip #1: Redefine your job description
To be successful in her career and always be on top of fashion, a woman needs to look at her job description from the perspective of hairstylists. Regardless of a woman’s profession, her hairstyle should help her look more attractive. Unfortunately, some women may not see the need for their hair or that their job requires them to be stuck in an unattractive hairstyle.
For example, a woman working in a lab will wear a bulky lab coat, along with gloves and goggles, and sometimes, with earmuffs and a gas mask. Her job description requires her to keep her hair off. Thus, her hair is pulled back in a severe bun. What if his laboratory research finally yields results worthy of media attention? She couldn’t walk out of her lab looking like an overworked scientist talking to beakers. Instead, her hairstylist would suggest a sleek short hairstyle, perhaps a chic bob. Her hair will still be out of the way as she pours slime from a flask, but when she takes off the coat, goggles and mask, she’ll look like a confident celebrity straight out of a fashion magazine. Simply put, you may think like Einstein, but you don’t have to be like him.
Tip #2: Don’t forget the basics
Now that you know that you should no longer be trapped by stereotypes and preconceived ideas related to your profession, you will find a wide variety of hairstyles that you are tempted to try. This is when your Einstein thinking is needed. Not all of these hairstyles will look good on you. You need to 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 suit your face shape. For example, an oblong-shaped face could not get away with extremely long hair, and the square-shaped face could not benefit from a cropped bob. The aesthetic law that hairdressers faithfully adhere to is to have hairstyles that create illusions. For example, a medium length layered hairstyle will create an illusion of length and tightness for women who have round face shapes.
Tip #3: Look for a timeless 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. This means that your hairstyle must meet, to some extent, the social expectations of your age. For example, when you’re in your 40s, don’t be tempted by green highlights or asymmetrical cuts. If you really wanted highlights, choose the more subtle colors. And if you really wanted to copy Victoria Beckham’s chic bob, compromise with a longer length or a less drastic angle.
Does this mean that older women have a more limited hairstyle choice? On the contrary, older women have more freedom with hairstyles. When you’re in your 40s, you can get away with a lot. But you have to remember to look more elegant than stylish, and to look shrewd rather than obtuse.
If you are in your twenties, you can still copy many trendy hairstyles, even those that are considered extreme. But you still need to consider the nature of your job. For example, if you are in the insurance business, you want your hairstyle to encourage your clients to have confidence in your professional abilities. In other words, you don’t want your clients to think you’re too young for your job.
