How Should I Prepare for My Headshot
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY HEADSHOT
Preparing for your headshot shouldn’t be complicated or stressful. These tips will help you feel prepared and ready to go on the day of your shoot.
Bring 4-6 tops to choose from the day of your shoot. Consider bringing layers, a nice blazer, or sweater that can go over the tops and provide a different look. Remember only to get items that you LOVE wearing!
Make sure your clothes are ironed and ready to go the day before your shoot, so you aren’t stressed out about ironing clothes and picking out what to wear minutes before leaving the house. Remember wrinkly clothes will show on camera.
Choose simple muted tones over bold prints. Bold prints will take away from the focus of a headshot, which is YOU!
Keep accessories to a minimum. If Jewelry is a part of your brand, I recommend keeping it to a minimum of stud earrings or a structured necklace like pearls. Be sure to make sure the necklace isn’t too long that it intersects with the neckline of your top.
Make sure to keep the makeup subtle. A natural look always looks best in headshots. It is best to avoid eyeliner on the bottom lid, “cat eye,” and red lipstick. If you are not sure how much makeup to wear, think about a “no-makeup” makeup look. Make sure to pack your hair/makeup items that you may need so you can touch up after changing outfits.
Keep Hydrated and get plenty of sleep the week leading up to your headshot session. This is paramount to good looking skin and a healthy glow.
That’s It! Now you are ready for an amazing headshot!
