What to Wear for Your Headshot Session?

Make sure to bring at least two different shirts with you to your headshot session. If you prefer a lighter background, opt for darker colors, and avoid whites. Solid colors are your best bet for a timeless look, as patterns can be distracting and may look outdated over time. For a standout appearance, consider primary colors like red, blue, yellow, green, black, etc. Mid tones also work well. And don’t worry about the small things – the studio has hairspray and a lint roller on hand if you need any last-minute touch-ups. If you wear glasses, make sure they have an anti-glare coating, or bring a pair with removable lenses.

Hair & Makeup Tips

For professional headshots, like those for LinkedIn or a company website, it’s best to go with minimal makeup, similar to what you’d wear on a normal workday. Ladies, consider wearing foundation to even out your skin tone. If you’d like professional hair and makeup before the shoot, just let me know, and I can recommend some makeup artists for you.

A Word on Haircuts

Avoid getting a haircut on the same day as your session. New haircuts take some getting used to, and the resulting images may not reflect the self you’re accustomed to. Give yourself a few days to get comfortable with your new haircut before the session.

Prep the Night Before

To look your best, try to avoid excessive salt intake and alcohol the night before your session, as these can make you appear bloated. A good night’s rest will also help reduce dark circles under your eyes. So, take it easy the night before, stay hydrated with plenty of water, and get a good night’s sleep.

If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know at least 48 hours in advance. Last-minute cancellations (less than 24 hours) may incur a re-booking fee.
