three different headshots of man, man, and women

 

Clothing

  • Bring several outfits that you feel great wearing and more than you think you need, to provide a variety of options to find the best look
  • Well fitted clothing, because loose or bagging clothing can be distracting
  • Clothes with solid colours and limited patterns are preferred
  • If you don't have a jacket, long sleeves are better, to avoid the distraction of your skin below the elbow showing
  • Avoid shirts/tops with deep plunging necklines
  • Ties, with simple patterns
  • Iron your clothes, please, to help reduce wrinkles

However, don’t worry about this too much, basically, bring clothes that you love to wear and/or how you would normally dress for an important meeting in your industry.

Face

  • If applicable, freshly shaven, if possible
  • Trim any "extra" eyebrow or nose hairs

Make up

  • Keep it simple, natural, and clean
  • If you use eyeliner, keep it light, or, none at all

Hair

  • As you normally style/wear it

Jewelry

  • Less is better, as jewelry can be distracting

Glasses

  • Bring them, if you have different styles, bring those as well
