Twirl your hair in the conference room? Wear a lot of perfume? Huge no-nos. See our list of the worst beauty habits that could hold you back at work
Nail bitingRight up there with playing with your hair is biting your nails, which not only gives off a nervous vibe but can also hint at another weakness: bad personal hygiene. If such a noticeable part of you appearance looks unkempt, flaky, or is bleeding, "people may assume that you are not paying attention to details," says Leah McAdaragh, a National Sales Manager. "Plus, the habit can indicate an inability to remain calm in urgent environments."
Bottom line: "Nails don't have to be polished, but they should be clean and manicured," says McAdaragh. If you're a biter, try a color on your fingertips so you're less inclined to nibble.
