    There are no curlies because power haircuts are mostly hideous and curly hair isn't hideous. : )
    --I'm located in Western PA.   --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.   --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.   --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.

    I think you might be right Jeep, LOL!

    Regarding the power haircuts, I noticed that a new woman I work with has a CEO type haircut that makes a statement, "I want employers to be attracted to me" but in the dating realm not so much.

    There must be a happy medium between a serious CEO look and something a bit sexier.

    This is gross.

    What bothers me most about it is that it reduces Women CEOs down to a haircut. These women are smart, driven and business-savy. They got where they are using these traits, not by chosing a stupid haircut.
    2c/3a mix and very fine, normal porosity
    Shampoo: Loreal EverSleek Sulfate-free (Only 1 or 2x a week)

    CoWash Suave Naturals Coconut or VO5 Kiwi Lime Squeeze

    Rinse Out: Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil or GVPCB

    Leave in: More Suave Naturals Coconut or GVPCB Always diluted with water/epsom salt spray

    Products: AG Re:coil with EcoStyler Olive Oil gel or HETT gel

    I hate almost every single one of these styles. They do nothing to enhance each woman's looks. I'm not a believer in changing myself or my appearance to be more appealing; if a client wants me to look a certain way, it's going to be an uneasy partnership. Does this mean I'll wear my fox ears hat to a meeting with a new client? No......but I may wear it while driving in, and slip it around my neck while we talk, instead.

    This! This is what we are NOT about.

    People always assume that what your hair is doing is your choice, and straight is the default.

    I recently worked with a bleached, dried out blonde who felt sorry for me for having red wavy hair.

    They really are. And that first chick is a wavy or I'm a monkey's uncle. that's the kind of look I get with no product. Just kind of fuzzy straight hair.

    And almost NO one has actual straight hair! Like what, 30%?

    Why are we more powerful with less hair? More masculine, less sexual?

    I agree; it's like a strange twist on the madonna/whore complex...the sexkitten/ballbuster complex.

    I hate how "power" is defined so singularly in our society. Blech

    You'd have to assume these powerful women are making a pretty good income, you'd think then that they could find a stylist that would give them a flattering cut. Some of them are really quite ugly. And mannish.

    And that's what I have issue with. Why must they have more masculine hair to be perceived as powerful?

    OTOH, if they prefer short hair, that's their right.

    There are no Curlies because Diane Keaton is not a curly.

    BABY BOOM hair cuts and Annie Hall suits are the only secrets to all around female success. Haha.

    I love Diane, but dang. Let's move on already.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    Yes!

    I didn't mean to imply she is a CEO of a F500...just that I think her hair is cool but wouldn't be considered acceptable (let alone powerful) in many corporate or even gov't contexts.

  • chupiechupie Posts: 5,280Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    Her hair and her voice are amazing!!

    Yeah, Valerie June's hair is incredible! I love her hair!

    I refuse to look the way others think I should look. I've almost always worn my hair curly, except for a brief flat iron phase in 2004 that lasted only months. I quickly realized it was messing up my hair, and that straight hair just wasn't for me.

    I'm a nurse, so that's not really the "corporate" world they are describing in that stupid article, but I've never gone to any of my job interviews with straight hair. It's always been curly, and I always got the job. I think people take you seriously when you take yourself seriously (but not too much! lol), and I think acting like a professional is what matters, and you don't have to have straight hair to look polished and professional.
    NO ONE is gonna tell me how to wear my hair, and I wouldn't want to work anywhere that tried!

    What do you think? Why are there no curlies here?

    My first thought was "marketing ploy", someone is very interested in pushing straight hair on women by making them think it'll help them get "to the top". Frankly, I didn't bother seeing the gallery once Hillary Clinton's face burned into my retina... I knew I'd probably be seeing more ugly "helmet hair" :rolleyes:
    I recently worked with a bleached, dried out blonde who felt sorry for me for having red wavy hair.

    Sorry? Didn't you ever tell her you felt sorry for her? I truly despise bleached, one tone, dull hair, I think it looks totally cheap...
    Why are we more powerful with less hair? More masculine, less sexual?

    Probably so. First it was women wearing suits in men's drab colors, then the "corporate" hair...:angryfire:

    @CurlyDiva71: I'm totally with you! So glad I've not been even NEAR the whole corporate thing. But I'm an artist anyway, and in mid-60s, so it's unlikely that I will LOL! Wearing my hair the way I want, which is 2c-3a in an inverted bob with bangs which suits me just fine. It's not corporate-looking at all LOL!

    ugh I find that article really sexist, curly, straight, long, short, whatever, I don't care, its sexist.
