When You Nab a Promotion

A signature haircut: Splurge on a cut with a top stylist at a great salon, but get trims with a junior stylist. "She'll know how to touch it up as it grows out—but it won't break the bank," says DJ Quintero, a stylist at the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon.

When You Score Your Own Office

An investment handbag:

Preventative anti-aging creams: Always look ready for anything with moisturizers that protect skin, repair cells, and promote new cell growth.

When You Become the Boss

A statement timepiece: The hallmark of a true power player? It's all in the wrist. Nothing signals how valuable your time is like an exquisite watch.

"Started" laser treatment: You always look unfazed by the demands of a busy career. Keep it that way with the Clear + Brilliant laser treatment, a milder form of skin resurfacing.
