Six Beauty Mistakes You’re Making In The Office
Get hired: Not wearing any makeup will work against you too however, so a natural, well groomed face is the most appropriate.
Full-on Falsies: These are instantly distracting. It is imperative you make eye contact when going for a job to make a connection. Big fluttering lashes just get in the way. Great for the Christmas party, not for the office.
Get hired: there’s no need to wear falsies in an interview, plus the risk of losing one just isn’t worth it.
Greasy hair:“I once had to tell a female employee to shampoo her hair because a client had made a complaint. It was not only viewed as below-standard work attire, but also a matter of hygiene. Just not professional.”
Get hired: This one’s pretty simple: wash your hair regularly! However we all get stuck sometimes so keep some dry-shampoo in the bathroom cupboard in times of emergency.
Bright colours: The recent trend for pastel and dip-dyed hair does not belong in an office. You need to project a professional image to ensure you are taken seriously.
Get hired: if you’re still determined to have a punky edge, keep it low key. The latest way to wear colour is in a single section low at the back. Dye it and roll it up underneath your blow-dry to conceal it at work.
Talon show: Ridiculously long nails are not only impractical, but there are also hygiene issues. Once again if you want to be taken seriously you need to look like someone who means business.
Get hired: Natural, well groomed nails will win everytime.
