Here’s a question we haven’t talked about in a while: what is the best professional haircut for women? I can remember, years ago, that Angela Merkel’s short, almost mannish cut was THE cut to have. Not just for women of a certain age, but for a lot of women who were coming up the ranks. But I wonder: what do you think of as the most “professional” haircut? If it were right for your hair, which CEO, anchor person, or world leader would you be taking pictures of to your salon, saying “if you want to be taken seriously, you have to have serious hair.” (Bonus points for any reader who can find me a video link to Working Girl where she says that — in the meantime, here’s the trailer.)
So who do you look to today for the best professional hair? Sheryl Sandberg? Marissa Mayer? What changes to your own hair have you made to make it more “professional”? Or do you think we’ve reached an age where “whatever works for you” IS the best professional haircut?
