This part of your service training is surely the most relaxed, fun part of it all, especially for the ladies.
It is time for you to put on your new uniform and learn how each item must be worn, what type of make up to apply depending on your face features, how to do your nails and so much more.
The service manual of each airline will have an entire section dedicated to grooming, appearance and uniform regulations.
As with all the information you receive during training, pay just as much attention to this module as the uniform regulations are quite strict and disrespecting it can easily lead to you being offloaded from a flight.
When it comes to make up, follow the company guidelines, as acceptable colours may be different for each airline.
The general standard is natural colours with a minimum make-up of foundation, blusher, lipstick and mascara while excessive make-up is strictly not permitted.
The grooming regulations are different from company to company and tend to be very strict. You might have to use a lipstick you wouldn’t choose if it was up to you, or wear your hair in a way you feel doesn’t compliment your appearance.
For those of you who don’t fancy wearing make-up at all, having to put on even the basic requirement will be a bit difficult.
You need to remember it is all part of our job and standards are very important in maintaining the airline’s image and giving a set of 8, 16 or even 24 crew, a uniform look.
You are now aware of the bigger picture of what the cabin crew profession and lifestyle mean.
We hope you will wear your uniform with pride and will make the most of the journey ahead.
