From choosing the right outfit to doing your hair and makeup, we’ll make sure you’re ready to shine. So take a deep breath, relax, and let’s get started!

Get some rest

If possible, try to get some rest. A good night’s sleep help you look and feel your best.

Choose what you’ll wear

Pick a nice, clean (preferably ironed) outfit that makes you feel confident. Bright colours or patterns can be fun, but solid colours usually work best. Remember to avoid clothes with big logos or distracting patterns.

Still not sure what to wear? We wrote a whole article on the subject.

Do your hair

This isn’t the time to try something new so choose a hairstyle that you’ve had success with before. If you’re planning on getting a haircut before the session make sure you do it at least a week in advance to allow time for it to settle. Bring a brush or comb and some hairspray to touch up your hair if needed.

Go easy on the makeup

Makeup should be applied lightly and shouldn’t be too different from your everyday look. This is a headshot, not a glamour shoot, so you want to look like yourself. We can remove zits and other blemishes in Photoshop, so there’s no need to try to cover everything.

Relax and have fun

It’s normal to feel a little nervous, but try to relax, laugh and be yourself. Trust us to do our job and don’t be afraid to have a little fun. The more relaxed you are, the better your headshot will turn out.
