For busy career women, things like style and fashion can sometimes get put on the backburner. When juggling the demands of a high-powered career with all the demands of home (especially if you have a family of your own), it can be extremely difficult to find the time for hair, makeup, and outfits. Luckily, we are here to help. If you feel like you are too busy for the fashions that you love, read below. As this article will show you, there is always time for beauty and fashion.

Hair

When it comes to beauty, one of the things that women find to be most time-consuming, and most daunting, is hair. We all have bad hair days—days where, as hard as we may try, it is impossible to get our hair to look the way we want it to. Of course, showing up to work with a professional-looking hairdo is of the utmost importance. This poses a huge problem for career women. The solution: hair extensions. The Lauren Ashtyn Collection’s full volume hair extensionsare ideal for working women. Some of the advantages of these extensions are listed below:

  • They clip in, so that you can get ready in a snap
  • They are fully customizable with regard to style, color, and cut
  • They add fullness to your hair, giving you that professional look you are after, whether left loose or pulled into a classic updo

Makeup

Makeup is also a key component of a career woman’s style. Unfortunately, like hair, the process of putting on makeup can be very time-consuming. Some of our tips should help you speed up the process though. For one thing, we recommend investing in a set of makeup brushes. Many women use the same brush for a variety of makeup applications. This is an inefficient setup, as it forces you to spend extra time cleaning off the brush after each application. In this case, more is definitely better. We also recommend that you cleanse and moisturize at night. This gives you a blank canvas on which to apply makeup the next day. Finally, we also recommend investing in matte lipstick, as it is easy to apply and delivers stunning results.

The Outfit

OK, so we’ve got the hair and makeup figured out. That leaves us with the last big component: the outfit. Dressing the part is essential to getting ahead in your career, for men and women. If you feel that you do not have time to clean and press your clothes the way you would like, your local dry cleaner can be a great resource. When you become a “regular” at a dry cleaner in your neighborhood, you will be able to drop off and pick up your clothes like clockwork. If you find that choosing an outfit each morning takes up more time than you would like, we have a simple solution: choose and lay out your outfit the night before. You will be surprised at how much time you can save with this simple step. Finally, we feel the old adage bears repeating: dress for the job you want, not the job you have.
