Hair Tips for your Photo Session

There are a few simple guidelines that you can follow to make sure that your hair looks amazing for your photo session.

1. You can get it styled but don’t get it cut!

You can really have some fun pampering yourself before a photo session.  Go to the salon, relax, and get your hair styled for your shoot.  You certainly don’t have to, but it can be a huge relief and often a lot of fun to leave your hair up to the professionals for a day.

But… be weary of a haircut right before your photo session!  If you need a haircut, schedule it a couple of weeks before your session so you have plenty of time to fix it if anything goes wrong.

We have all had a disaster of a hair cut.  The last thing you want is to have a disaster of a hair cut two hours before a photo session!

So… do it yourself or have a professional style it, but don’t get it cut!

2. Bring quick fix items with you

Hairspray, clips, bobby pins, or a hair tie can save your life in the middle of a photo shoot.  Be prepared and throw all of these in your purse before the shoot.

3. Have a second hair style ready

Wether it is a great headband or a simple ponytail, a second hair style can add some variety to your photos.

Mixing different outfits, accessories, and hair styles will give you so much more to choose from when you are looking at the photos from your session.  If you have 30 photos from your session but you have the same hair style in all of them, they will start to all look the same after a while.  Any way you can mix it up will help.
