Can I Wear My Afro to the Interview?

Aside from a knock out resume and being totally prepared for a round of questions, your appearance plays into the first impression when it comes to job interviews. We all have our idea of style. Your style can range from basic to completely bizarre– and I mean bizarre in the best way.

And I am a complete advocate for expressing your style.

BUT, and that’s a big but, when it comes to seeking employment which is hard enough, I suggest reeling it in a bit. If you are like me and live by “the bigger the hair the smaller the waist”, try a protective style or bun instead. A pony puff would also work.

Once you have landed the job, which I am sure you will, then let your hair down– literally. Since you have the job, you can incorporate more of your personal style. I don’t suggest going to work with a sky-high faux hawk, but definitely wear your hair in some of your favorite styles. Your hair is something to be proud of and if you see your hair as a problem, so will everyone else.

Comment below and tell me what some of your favorite work styles are!
