If you are considering a career in aviation and you are already on the hunt for opportunities to work as a flight attendant, one thing you should know is that appearance plays a vital role - meaning that you should look exceptional at all times whether that is your first interview or your "on duty" moments in general.
And since there is no second chance to make a great impression, here's a mini guide to help you rock that once in a lifetime opportunity to start your dream career!
Chose a dress resembling the company's uniform: a simple, modest, knee-length dress will be perfect. Try avoiding bodycon dresses - they will look provocative rather than professional. Sleeveless or off the shoulder dresses should be paired with a jacket or cardigan. Prefer dark hues as grey or black as they make a safe and smart choice.
The combination of a tailored skirt and jacket is your next best thing for your interview outfit. Pair them with a crisp white shirt to add a touch of cleaness and subtle colour to your appearance.
Don't be afraid that your look resembles that of a Flight Attendant. That should be your purpose.I would go for a grey-white or black and white look. And if you're making your first step and haven't built a working wardrobe yet, all you have to do is invest in a few key pieces.
Your workwear should include a pair of separates and/or a dress. I wouldn't suggest wearing a suit - tailored jacket and trousers - but the choice is up to you.
An elegant pair of heels is a must - BE CAREFUL not to chose something of the following: stilettos, sky-high heels, patent leather, peep toes, heeled sandals, or heavily decorated shoes. Avoid ballerina and flat shoes in general.
The perfect pair of tights is a nude, skin-like color to wear even during the winter months. Avoid opaque tights for an interview.
Your hair should always be up in a bun or ponytail - it is an essential part of a flight attendant’s appearance.
MAKEUP & NAILS
SIMPLE, CLEAN, AND FRESH LOOKING. Avoid heavy makeup products and dark eye shadow. Keep the look clean. Put emphasis in your eyes with some eyeliner and mascara. Add some blush and lipstick. Red lipstick is acceptable. Just remember to wear minimal eye makeup with it.
Keep your nails looking clean and polished. Short nails are generally preferred, but if you do have long nails, try a subtle nail polish. Pick a nude polish, french manicure, or red ONLY on short nails for the day.
ACCESSORIES & JEWELRLY
Keep it clean and minimal. Chose a pair of studs. Avoid hoops or drop earinngs. Avoid long, statement necklaces, and go for a fine chain necklace instead.
I would use one key word: ELEGANCE
BE ELEGANT, BE CHIC, BE A CLASSY VVIP FLIGHT ATTENDANT!
You don't have to be a super model to make it as a flight attendant. You just have to be unique. GOOD LUCK!
