2. Wear it Natural

One of the most important ways to present yourself in an interview is to be you. Translate that mantra into your interview hair by wearing your natural hair as is. Just make sure that’s clean, conditioned and combed for your big day. If you find that your hair is especially dry you may also need some hair oil like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil . Infused with six hair oils, this product can help you to reduce frizz and make your hair super soft.

Sometimes an update on your hair color with some highlights is all you need. Make sure to visit your colorist at least a week before your interview to make sure you get exactly what you want, and you don’t walk into your interview with a color you don’t love.

We love the minimal styling of a pixie cut. But that doesn’t mean no styling. Opt to use some gel as you play with your part and texture. For some interviews this might be a short spiky ‘do or a more controlled slicked back hair look.
