#2 GET YOUR HAIR CUT A FULL WEEK BEFORE THE SHOOT.
Getting your hair cut a week before your headshot session will give your hair the chance to ‘grow in’ a little. It will give it time to relax into its true style.
Also in the Summer months, a fresh haircut might leave tan lines around the neck and forehead, so be mindful of that.
Try to stick to a tried and tested style and avoid any major experimentation at this stage.
A quick word on grey.
It looks great on you!
Yep…….a little salt and pepper can look very distinguished and it looks fantastic in pictures. Embrace it.
If you do decide to colour your hair or beard, then I would suggest doing so a couple of weeks before your headshot session to give it a little time to blend in and look more natural.
