We have all heard the phrase, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” Or, don’t judge a person by their hairstyle. This is hard to do if that person has rainbow coloured hair, a buzz cut, or hair all the way down their back. It is in our nature to judge based on what we see with 80% of people admitting to this. Whether you think so or not, your hair shows off your personality. Hairstyle trends come and go, but the way you wear your hair shows others how you behave. Let’s take a look at what your hairstyle says about you in the world of business.
Different Strokes for Different Folks
The different hairstyles we wear display attributes of our personalities. Short hair is viewed as business-like, communicating that you don’t like to waste your time. Curly hair portrays creativity, strong-will, and lack of seriousness. Throwing your hair into a ponytail on the other hand, shows you care more about other people’s needs.
Expressing yourself through your hair has been happening since the beginning of time. In business however, it is important to maintain professionalism and display yourself in the best light. Do you wear your facial hair a certain way? It’s not just the hair on your head that counts. Having a handlebar moustache portrays something very different than a full beard or a bare face.
If you’re a banker, keeping your hair long may indicate sloppiness or disorganisation. When you cut your hair, style it properly, it changes how people view you. Wearing your hair shorter on one side and longer on the top communicates a deep thinker and someone who has attention to detail. Having a fade is flattering on most, and portrays dependability, loyalty, and properness. Men who wear pompadours are risk-takers who like to be the centre of attention, where those who have side-parts mean business and like to be taken seriously.
Any cut you wear will portray a diverse aspect of your personality. Learning what your hairstyle says about you is important in business. You will be able to wear your hair very differently if you work in a surfing shop versus a prestigious law firm.
Conservative haircuts are best for employment that is business formal or business casual, whereas casual is more lenient to do what you want. Find out your business dress code first. Talking to your stylist about the type of business you work in will help get a feel for how you should style your hair to fit in.
