6 Things to Not Wear to Your Beautician Job Interview


A big high five to you ! You’ve cleared the first step and have been short-listed for your beautician interview.

1.Killer High Heels
Now, when we say killer high heels: we mean ALL high heels! Let’s put those away for a fun night out in the Big Apple.

As a beautician, you will spend most of your day on your feet. Standing straight for several hours can tire your feet and affect the joints of its bones. You want to let your interviewer know that you’re aware standing for long periods of time is part of the job and you’re sensibly prepared for it.

Now, how can you show that?

All you have to do is wear a pair of stylish yet comfortable shoes to your interview. Pop into your favorite shoe shop down the street and get yourself some clogs or van shoes.

2. Bold Necklines
Okay, so you may already know this – but plunging necklines at your beautician interview are a no go!

You deserve to have your interviewer focus all her attention on you and on what you can do, not on what you’re wearing.

Here’s a little tip just for you: go for a smart printed blouse with a high round neck or a smart button-down shirt for a chic yet professional look.

3. Short Skirts
Hey, we love skirts as much as you! However, the length of your skirt is something you might want to think about when planning what to wear for your beautician interview.

Got your favourite red mini-skirt in your hand? Why not put that aside and wear it to your best friend’s birthday party or when you hit the hottest New York clubs  this weekend?

Now, take out that adorable knee-length (or over the knee) skirt you have and pair it with a lovely printed top to create the perfect look for yourself. Also, you can never go wrong with black trousers and a smart top!

We know you have an amazing sense of style

4. No Suits
Yes, you read it right: no suits for your beautician interview.

Surprised ?Wellll, if you actually think about it, being a beautician requires you to stand a lot, bend to get your stuff and is generally a physical job.

You want to be comfortable, so you can show your magic to your interviewer. You never know, you might be asked to show off your skills in a hair-dressing test or be asked how to do a manicure (given whatever your specialty is).

5. Over-Accessorising
Sure, you should definitely express your self through your jewellery and accessories- but not at your beautician interview.

Here, go with the saying “less is more” (remember, not for skirt lengths and blouse necklines) and enjoy a minimal look with just a watch, elegant earrings (nothing super dangly!) and a classy ring or two

6. Long Nails & Loud Makeup
Why do we recommend not having long nails?

As a beautician, your job is hands-on and will require direct contact with your clients. For instance, if you are giving your client a manicure , you do not want your nails to pinch and hurt their skin. Keep your nails short, clean and filed. Go for a clear polish to let your interviewer now you do keep yourself presentable as you appreciate the traits of your trade.

Avoid glaring, bright shades of eyeshadows, dark eyeliners and too much mascara. Of course, don’t go barefaced but highlight your features with minimal makeup. You’re naturally beautiful !
