How to Look Hirable
Perfect your job interview style with these tips from makeup, hair and career experts
Don't get accessory crazyIt only takes one too many bedazzled hair pins to turn your flare into folly. Though it's easy to get excited and pair your favorite hoop earrings with a vintage jeweled barrette or to try a new trend like feathered headbands (seen here on Eva Mendes), resist overdoing it. While it might look great for a night out, it's definitely not appropriate for the board room. Frankel suggests that before you walk out the door, stand in front of a mirror and quickly turn around once and look back in the mirror. Whichever accessory you notice first, remove -- it'll be too distracting to your interviewer. While you want to show your personality, you don't want to do anything that will eliminate you from the hiring process.
