I’m not sure if this is the place to post this...I got offered a really great job but the dress code is business professional everyday, which I am interpreting as suit and a tie.

So, since I’m moving into the world of adulthood, and I’ll be working with clients, I figure it’s time to do away with the long hair. I wore it tied back in the interviews, but I want to have a good start for my first big boy job. Plus, I’ve always felt weird with having long hair when I’m dressed up.

anybody have any recommendations? Something that’ll look good for a suit and tie
wardrobe?

Okay. Should I go to a barber and pretty much just say "classic side part" and have them go from there? haha as you can tell I haven't been to the barber in a long long time, and it was usually just to clean up loose ends.

The daily dress code is suit and tie, although most people take the jacket off in the office when clients aren't in. I'm not able to be wearing a very high end suit until a few paychecks in. I don't know if that makes a difference on those other details?

in the link there are some guidelines on how to try to proportion the shape of the haircut depending on the shape of your face. With not as high end suiting I would have drier and not as orderly and slick look. Ryan Gosling and George Clooney have a lot of pictures on google with side parts that does not look like the spent an hour on their hair in the morning yet looks like they look after themselves(well someone did hehe)

Find something you like thats not extravagant, bring picture with you. When i had more money I used to go the saloon where the hair dressers also worked on fashion shoots and such, it did cost a bit but they had skills, good inputs, and the cut looked good for a longer time. If you dont want to spend too much, a good rule of thumb is some mid price hole in the wall guy/woman thats been around for long time in a higher end neighborhood. Read the article, ask questions about proportions, tell about job and clothing. Good luck

Great, sounds like good advice. I'm super nervous about getting such a drastic cut, but I think it's time if I'm going to be working in a business professional environment.
