Job Interview Hair

Okay, I have an inside scoop on an position opening at my city's police department. I actually got the tip from the Lieutenants wife(we're very good friends) a few months ago that they will have two office positions available in the near future.

He (the Lieutenant) called me today and asked if I was still interested. I was jumping up and down practically. Anyway, they need a temp almost immediately and if all goes well I will have a shot in a few to several months at one of the permanent positions. $2500 to start and the permanent gets retirement, insurance benefits, and more pay. I will be really sad to leave my position at the elementary school,but I only make about $600 something a month there. Plus this would be M-F 8-5!!!!

Anyhoo, I was wondering if anybody had a good style just in case I get an interview? I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance!!!!:D

    First of all, congratulations and good luck. How long is your hair? If it is below your shoulders, the style that I used (as I do not look good with my hair skinned back) is to take two pieces from under at the nape (one on each side) then pull them around to use as a 'hair tie'...I tie it once in a type of 'knot" that doesn't stay as it is curly, then clip a little claw that blends in with my hair there. That way it is back out of my face, and looks professional, but flattering.

    Please tell me that made sense...I think it came from the CG book.

    Yes. That makes sense. My hair is about shoulder length. I like that idea, it sounds professional yet soft. Yeah I don't think I look so great with my hair slicked back. Though I do have my grandmothers widow's peak(sp?) Thanks for the idea:icon_smile:

    Good. And 'soft' was the other word I was looking for ;) Now, if you were going for a patrol job...french braid or knot of some sort, but since it is administrative stuff, you can get away with it.

    I still wish I had convinced my uncle to get me a job at the Texas DPS years ago...he was a Texas Ranger and could have waltzed me in :_)

    A classy variation on that style - I take each side piece and rope braid them, then fasten in the back with a mini flexi-8. You could use a rubber band or a small barrette too. I interpreted the description in Curly Girl as the hair just above / slightly behind my ears, not the nape, if that matters.

    I wore my hair as suggested when I went and turned my application into my Lieutenant friend. Too bad I didn't take a pic, I had such a headache all day that when I got home I just put it in a loose bun and took some Excedrin. I pray I get that job-apparently it's a little more than administration... Interim Records Technician to be exact. Sounds fun huh? If I get it I will be wearing a uniform, I haven't had to wear one since I was a security guard when I was 19! I thought I could just wear nice office clothes. If I get it I will be asking y'all for some hairstyles, most likely prof updo type styles to wear like I saw the other gals wearing. If you have any suggestions or pics now, please share.

    Thanks

    I do a messy bun with bobby pins. Pull hair into a low ponytail (with a slight side part) and then pin randomly into a bun. It looks pretty cool with curl hair. Last time I wore it, I got a bunch of compliments from the straighties :) (is that a word yet? it should be!)

    thanks curlyjenn10 I'll give that a shot tomorrow and see how it looks. I use that word "straightie" :glasses8:
