Contemplate on the following example: You’re preparing for an important client meeting or job interview. You’ve ticked all the boxes with a perfectly structured presentation, crisp white shirt and carefully selected tie. However, you haven’t invested the time for a trip to the barber’s in weeks.
When you reach across to shake your client or potential employer’s hand, he or she will look you in the eyes. As you talk, he or she will be scrutinising your facial expressions. It can’t be stressed enough that it isn’t just your body language or the way you dress that reflects the character you exude.
Consider also that according to a 2009 Axe survey, nearly 74% of women agree that hair is the first things they notice about a man. If you think about it, a job interview is very much like a first date.
A man’s personality and character is exuded through his choice of haircut. Hair is the leading influence that defines first impressions.
Furthermore, the care he takes of his hair is an important factor. Granted, you can let your hair grow naturally. However, if you neglect it, it will show.
Nevertheless, we acknowledge and emphasise that your attire indeed plays a vital role in your appearance. However, all the components work together in unison to paint the complete portrait. Consider the ensemble and how it the hair functions. It can complement your attire or provide contrast.
