hairstyles in business
1.
Classic pony tail
- not only keeps the hair from falling on the face but it also gives the individual a neat appearance.

and end up looking like a cheerleader. Instead, tie your hair in a pony tail at the nape of the neck or slightly higher up at the back of the head.

2.
Classic bun

Smart Bob
- Women with short to medium length hair can wear their hair in a smart bob to the office. The best bob hairstyles for professional women are the asymmetrical bob and the angled bob.

Keep nails clean, well manicured, and short.
Clear polish
is always appropriate. If you do wear a color, don't be garish and always
match nails and lip color
appropriately.

Dress code
consists of written and, more often, unwritten rules with regard to clothing. It applies to everyday life, no matter what your profession is.

However, in business dress code is of extreme importance. Why?

- It shows your
attitude to work
.
- It shows your
attitude towards other people
: co-workers, boss, clients.
- It shows
what kind of person you are
: reliable, responsible, respectful?

The way you dress can play a big role in your professional career. Part of the culture of a company is the dress code of its employees. Some companies
prefer a
business casual approach
, while other companies require
a business professional dress code.
Remember!!
Researches proved that it takes
only 30 seconds
to make first impression – make yours count!!
