I was just reading through some of your articles (I reread them when I’m in need of career strength) and I’m in the process of girding my loins and applying to jobs out of state and moving, all the while planning a wedding.
My question came about from reading this article.
To preface: I have short hair, very short on the right side and gradually increases in length to form an array of curls on the left side, no longer than right below my jaw. It’s very trendy, and I love it, especially after so many years of boring hair.
The problem is that now that I’ll be getting interviews (optimism!) I’ll be applying to architecture firms. I worry that my hair will send the wrong message about me.
So, do I rock the hair and put together a fierce but appropriate interview outfit to match, or should I slick it back and don’t release it until I’m hired?
The pictures are for reference. My hair is a combination of the two, but my own natural brunette color.
ps. I’m trying to get myself a lady architect mentor, and so far, nothing. Sigh.
Good question, and awesome hair! In fact, your hair sounds positively … architectural.
I’d go with it, but let the shaved part grow out enough (get it nicely trimmed around the ear area, etc.) that it comes across as “short” and not “shaved,” much like the second photo you sent.
