A big high five to you 🙌!  You’ve cleared the first step and have been short-listed for your beautician interview. Planning your outfit? If you need a little help, we’re here for you.

Here’s what you DON’T wear:

      1.  Killer High Heels👠

Now, when we say killer high heels: we mean ALL high heels! Let’s put those away for a fun, frisky London night outsmiley

As a beautician, you will spend most of your day on your feet. Standing straight for several hours can tire your feet and affect the joints of its bones. You want to let your interviewer know that you’re aware standing for long periods of time is part of the job and you’re sensibly prepared for it.

Now, how can you show that?

All you have to do is wear a pair of stylish yet comfortable shoes to your interview. Pop into your favorite shoe shop down the street and get yourself some clogs or van shoes.

Okay, so you may already know this – but plunging necklines at your beautician interview are a no go!

You deserve to have your interviewer focus all her attention on you and on what you can do, not on what you’re wearing.

Here’s a little tip just for you: go for a smart printed blouse with a high round neck or a smart button-down shirt for a chic yet professional look.

     3.  Short Skirts

Hey, we skirts as much as you! However, the length of your skirt is something you might want to think about when planning what to wear for your beautician interview.

Got your favourite red mini-skirt in your hand? Why not put that aside and wear it to your best friend’s birthday 🎂party or when you hit the hottest London clubs 💃 this weekend?

Now, take out that adorable knee-length (or over the knee) skirt you have and pair it with a lovely printed top to create the perfect look for yourself. Also, you can never go wrong with black trousers and a smart top!
