Put your braids up for your job interview.

Another look that will get your hair out of your face is a bun. On braided hair, a top knot looks especially chic. Opt for a low or high bun, depending on your preference.

3. Upside-Down Braided Bun

If the standard bun isn’t your thing, why not try one with a little bit of an edge. The braided bun is chic with its 2-in-1 effect that focuses on a braided style in the back and one that wraps around your modern bun.

4. Half French Braid

Those with long hair have several options when it comes to style their hair for their big interview. To add a little style to the half-up look, opt for a half-French braid that shows off some style on your long hair.

5. Keep it Down

Or maybe you have a lob or long hair that you don’t want to contain. That’s totally ok! Just make sure that your hair is clean, dried and combed for your interview. We know that sounds basic, but definitely bears repeating. You may also need some serum like the Nexxus Ultralight Smooth Frizz Defy Cream Serum to help you keep frizz at bay.

6. Loose Curls

Look fresh and clean at your interview with loose curls. Create this romantic and modern look on dry hair with your curling wand. Twist your hair around the wand and gently release it at the ends. Use some hairspray to hold onto this style during your interview and throughout your day.

7. Twisted Roll

This look screams sophistication without screaming! This twisted updo features the look of a faux braid that is wrapped around your hair, creating a bun. You’ll definitely shine wearing this modern updo.

8. Natural Curls

9. Wavy Bob

Add a touch of texture to your bob.

Short-haired girls may have less styling time to contend with, but they’ll still want to look put together for their big interview. Wash and condition your hair as you normally would and then add some mist spray for texture. We love Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Mist for easy texture.

10. Simple Bun

Want a quick look that’s also a classic? Try a low side bun. Add a braid or a twist to the side of your head that you bring into your bun for an fun take on this look.
