Do I need Professional Hair and Makeup?

Booking a professional hair and makeup appointment prior to your headshot session is a personal preference but has great benefits! Why? A headshot will often be your first impression, whether for employers, clients, or coworkers. Therefore, you should be prepared to look like your very best self! Professional stylists can help cover blemishes, balance skin tones, tame and secure hair, give hair needed volume, accentuate your best features, reduce dark circles under the eyes and make you look and feel your absolute best. 

Another added bonus of scheduling a professional hair and makeup appointment is less details to worry about. Instead, you can sit back, relax, and focus on showing off your personality at the headshot session. Besides helping you look your best, your professional stylists will leave you with an added level of self-confidence and belief in yourself that will radiate through your photos. 

Remember, if you are using a new stylist or makeup artist, it is a good idea to do a trial. This way, you can know for sure that you are getting the look you want for your session. If there is anything you feel uncomfortable about, you can bring that up in the trial, rather than scrambling when it is actually show time! Professionals know exactly what looks best on camera and how to accentuate your best features. It’s much different than everyday life application.
