need GREAT job interview hair... help!

i've generally had no problem achieving good job interview hair in the past, but its also been during the spring/winter/fall when getting a sleek straight look with an iron was possible. now that it's mid-hot-humid-summer, i'm going to have to face my shoulder-length curls!

anyone have any suggestions for getting a look that's professional (under control and out of my face) and cute? i'm thinking a headband but not sure how super that would look with a suit....

    Reschedule your job interview for October??

    I think a headband could totally work with a suit. Is the place you're interviewing conservative? If so, might be a nice pop of color with the standard black suit.

    unfortunately the interviews are really formal--think law firm formal. maybe i will go looking for a simple headband to see how it works :>

    What about half-up-half-down? You could use a simple, conservative-looking clip or even just bobby pins.

    Yeah, that's a good idea. You could even just use a elastic band and topsy-twist your ponytail to hide the elastic.

    Maybe you could put it up with a claw clip and then leave a few stray curls over?

    I've been to court before and I've definately seen women wear their hair like that. Just make sure it's not in your face.

    I def. agree w/what's been said already, but even a simple french twist secured w/a comb or bobby pins. It's elegant yet very professional in my opinion.

    Be sure to let us know how you end up wearing you hair! :)
