3 Hairstyle Tips For Young Professional Women

1: Redefine your job description

How should a professional woman style her hair? There is no single accurate answer for this query. Beyond individual preferences, the appropriate hairstyle depends on plenty of factors, most importantly, the nature of her job. The job description of her selected profession has a great influence on the way a woman should style her hair. But other factors also come in to play, such as her other social roles & 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 he is & a new mom whose child likes to grab her hair. Choosing the right hairstyle is achieving a compromise for all conflicting factors & still having a confident-boosting outward appearance. The following tips will be useful in helping you select the appropriate professional hairstyle.

To be successful in her career & 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 beautiful. 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 & goggles, & sometimes, with earmuffs & a gas mask. Her job description demands that he keeps her hair out of the way. Thus, he's her hair pulled back in a severe bun. What if her laboratory research finally yields results that are worthy of media attention? He could not 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 he pours slimy sludge in to a flask, but when he removes the coat, the goggles, & the mask, he would look like a confident celebrity stepping out of a fashion magazine. Basically put, you may think like Einstein, but you don't have to look like him.

Now that you know that you need not be trapped by the stereotypes & preconceptions that are linked to your profession, you will find a wide a variety of hairstyles that you are tempted to try. This is when your Einstein-like thinking is needed. Not all these hairstyles will look nice on you. You need to remember all laws, both scientific & aesthetic.

2: Don't forget the basics

3: Strive for an ageless style

When it comes to hairstyles, the ones that will show off your best features will be those that are appropriate for the shape of your face. For example, an oblong shape face could not get away with long hair, & the square shape face could not benefit from a cropped bob. The aesthetics law that hairstylists faithfully adhere to is to have hairstyles that generate illusions. For example, a medium-length layered hairstyle will generate an illusion of length & narrowness for women who have round face shapes.

Another factor to weigh in choosing hairstyles is your age. This does not mean that you need a hairstyle that reflects the fad of the year you were born. It means that your hairstyle must accede, to some degree, to the social expectations of your age. For example, when you are in your forties, do not be tempted to have green highlights or asymmetrical cuts. If you wanted highlights, select the more subtle colors. & if you wanted to copy Victoria Beckham's chic bob, compromise with a longer length or a less radical angle.

Does this mean that older women have a more limited of selection of hairstyle? On the contrary, older women have more freedom with hairstyles. When you are in your forties, you can actually get away with a lot of things. But you must remember to appear more elegant than stylish, & to appear shrewd than obtuse.

If you are in your twenties, you can still copy a lot of the trendier hairstyles, even those that are considered extremes. But you must still consider the nature of your job. For example, if you are in the insurance business, you need your hairstyle to encourage your clients to have confidence in your professional abilities. That is, you don't need your clients to think that you are young for your job.
