There has been much discussion surrounding natural hair in the corporate world. Is textured hair considered unprofessional? Does it affect your positioning and career path? Do the “powers that be” make assumptions about your skillset based on your natural mane? I heard a story about a woman who wore her hair straight during her interview but once she was offered the position and started working for the company, she wore her natural textured hair and was told she “misrepresented herself”. Right or wrong, we can all agree that people judge based on appearance and that first impressions are everything. If you have a job interview, do you “tone down” your afro, do you forgo the twist out and break out the flat iron?
How do you style your hair for a job interview?
