Imagine the following:

The VP position just opened up at your firm and they are interviewing only the best candidates. You know that the President of the firm seems to prefer hair that is a bit more “put together”. What do you do? Do you straighten your hair just this once, so they can focus on your skills? Or do you wear a fresh twist out, to stand out?

Would you change your hair for work? Have you done it before?
Be honest ladies!

Curly Nikki Adds: Also, at what point did you overcome the desire to straighten to feel ‘appropriate’ for more formal occasions?
