So I was considering posting the photo on Instagram below on Tuesday on my way to an on-campus interview. With the caption ” as professional as it’s going to get”. For whatever reason, I decided against it. Maybe because the picture really isn’t doing the style any justice.
This is a topic is something I’ve struggled with this semester. I have had intern interviews for various companies some larger than others and each time I struggle with how to style my hair. If I have it in braids or twist, I usually opt for a bun. But with this heat free hair in twist, I could not quite fit it in a CUTE bun. That evening a Youtuber uploaded a video talking about natural hair in the professional world. BBBD’s video really inspired to not let other people’s comments get to me when it come to professionalism and natural hair. (I’ve been told never to wear my hair out to an interview, that “weave is preferred” ). I’ve also been encouraged to try new styles with the heat free hair.
Now please don’t get me wrong, I’m not bout to be in an interview with a Diana Ross or anything, just got to find that balance. My hope is that when the really important interviews roll in, I’ll be at least at shoulder length with my real hair, and will be able to easily slick it in a bun.
What is your “go to interview/ work flow” natural hairstyle?
