Nothing says elegance and sophistication like a sleek bun. Perfect for most professions, and especially great for aspiring lawyers, editors and fashion designers.

Keep your hair sleek and free of flyaways with a firm-hold gel. We love the VO5 Wet Look Styling Gel for its all-day hold and that gorgeous shine.


Flat twists

Flat twists are such an all-rounder of a hairstyle. No matter your profession, this style would look great in a job interview. You can make it as meek and mild as you like, or let it stand out with bigger twists or subtle accessories.


Braided bun

Update this classic look with some tiny braids. Depending on the placement of your braids, this look could be edgy, or simply “professional, but interesting”. Personally, this is our favourite take on the braided bun.

Now if you really want to stand out in your job interview, this is the look for you. And, it’s perfect for almost every hair length. Just apply a tiny amount of gel to keep it slicked down. We suggest using the VO5 Wet Look Styling Gel for the ultimate chic, shiny ‘do.
