Power Haircuts

Like Tree38Likes

There are no curlies because power haircuts are mostly hideous and curly hair isn't hideous. : )

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.
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.

(On another subject, anyone else notice those killer pink shoes in the lower right corner of the page? Love 'em!)

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.

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

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.

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!
