For these women, success depends on knowing their job thoroughly and donig it well. It also means presenting a smart, well-groomed appearance that says definitely they're in no way out-of-date. They know that good grooming means constant attention to a carefully planned and faithfully executed beauty program. The gray-haired woman concen trates on her skin and hair mor than ever now, since the color o her hair calls attention to them Her skin is a little drier after 40 so she applies a little baby oil to it as protection before she applie, her foundation- base. By watching current hair styles the older career woman will never look dated.. Short hair, softly waved and high-brushed, is the best style for graying hair. Tight curls and fussy designs detract from chic appearance. When she chooses a home permanent, the mature woman should select one formulated with a minimum of alkalis so as not to discolor her hair. One such permanem contains a new ingredient which, its makers say, brings out the natural beauty and sheen of gray or white hakr. Home permanents are an essential grooming aid to the mature woman who goes to business. They can provide her, on a budget, with a natural-looking wave that sets off an important business requirement — a chic-looking appearance from 9 to 5.
