The Reasons Why Politicians’ Appearance Matters
Politics is one of the most complicated things in the world. It is never an easy or chill thing to enter politics. It does not matter whether you are really into public service or how bad you want to be the people’s servant, or whatever agenda you have after getting the position. Politics will always be a complex one. The politics will always be about people who knows how to govern people. In order to do it, aside from being actually a “professional” (without underestimating or discriminating whose qualifications are different), the looks will also impact and influence their people. How?
- People who are dressed in a smart casual or business attire will always have a different kind of impact compared to those who are dressed in a hippie style. The way you dress tells a lot of things about you and your personality. Not always, but often. A politician should always think of what and how their people will react on their appearance. It matters since they influence people. Of course, dressing up should also vary on the type of activity a politician will be engaging in. But in ordinary days in the office, they are expected to look like they are ready to attend formal meetings.
- Make up for women and proper haircut for men. Our hair is our crowning glory. It has a lot to say with our looks and aura. Politicians should always appear neat and the hair has something to do with it. Wearing a braided wig, for example, might not be the appropriate for politicians, but if one is comfortable wearing one, it should not be taken against him or her as long as he or she is neat and appears to be professional.
It is necessary for politicians to look smart all the time. A lot of expectations from their people are there and as public servants they have to try their best to meet the expectations they need to.
