Hair advice? Upcoming med school interviews. . .

So, my first med school interview is next week. I'm terrified. Additionally, I don't know what to do with my hair. Perhaps if I focus on the trivial stuff I'll survive the hard stuff. lol

I have long, thick, wavy hair. It is unruly. It doesn't do sleek very well.

What's the most professional-looking thing I can do with it? Should I just do a low ponytail and smooth it out as much as possible?

I don't have a flatiron or anything. I have hot rollers. shrug

Yeah, I'm having trouble finding much that shows my hair down in its natural state. The best I got is slightly damp and blowing in the wind. Ah well. lol

try loosely pinning hair back on the sides and top. let the hair in the very
back hang freely with loose waves. you have a pretty face. round in shape. nod
good luck on the interviews.

This is the most realistic, best hair advice I have ever seen on the org.

Most of the time the suggestions have nothing to do with the actual hair type, length, or colour.

It IS impressive that you are able to get INTERVIEWED. Some people don't even make it to THAT stage. You'll do fine! wink

good luck with the interview, but you need really practical hairstyle as a medic, long hair presents infection control and health and safety risk! lol
you have a pretty face, try having it short and stylish

Seriously, though, I think nicely pinned-up -- neat, but not matronly -- would really flatter you and give you the professional look you're going for. I think Zombiekitten's styles are perfect.

Once you're in a program (And you WILL get in... OWN that $@#%, girl! talk to the hand) and you're doing internships, etc., you may consider cutting a bit of length.

good luck on the interviews.


Where did you apply? I used to coordinate a residency training program and had to schedule the interviews for internship. Most of the applicants were dressed appropriately. Ladies tended to have shorter hair, but those that had longer hair would either pin it up or wear it loose to the shoulders or in a tidy pony tail. Anyway, good luck and just be yourself!

Melissa, I totally thought it looked hot when it was short and messy and wavy. There's a pic of you with that cut, smiling with your glasses on that I distinctly remember how cute you were in it.
