In order to look like the other employees and not be recognized, she changed her image dramatically. I wondered how many elements they would decide to change in order for her to go unrecognized. Quite a few, it turned out!
She went from a polished and refined look to one that was very dated, unsophisticated and unprofessional.
The photos above are not of the actual CEO, but the types of changes were similar. The CEO changed her hair from an attractive and stylish style to a dated-looking, flyaway shag. Her makeup was more exaggerated, and she wore gaudy colors and very unprofessional styles.
A lot of young employees arrive at the office in club attire, and have no idea how much they are diminishing their chances of success. Unkempt hair also takes its toll on credibility.
The way you look and dress announces how you feel about yourself, and you’ll be treated accordingly. The CEO wasn’t accorded much respect.
Without a doubt, we do judge a book by its cover. If you want to be treated with respect and accorded credibility, you need a professional image from head to toe.
