A Headshot Guide for Women
Sometimes preparing for your upcoming headshot session can seem overwhelming! For women, there are a few things to consider and these extra steps will make the headshot go smoothly and look fantastic!
- Hair and makeup: I always recommend using a professional hair and makeup artist. A HMU will know what’s appropriate for a business headshot and can tailor the look to your style. If you don’t have your own stylist, we can provide one for you! If doing your own makeup, please apply just a little more than you would normally wear to the office. It’s important to reduce shine and have a little cheek and lip color.
- Skin and nails: be sure that your lips and face are moisturized and nails look good in case they show in an image.
- Wardrobe: depending on your position, role, and industry, your wardrobe should be a step up from what you would normally wear to the office. Remember that you dress for the next role that you want to achieve. A suit jacket and a solid color blouse may be appropriate. Or just a blouse with a good neckline may be fine. Please no sleeveless blouses because it takes attention away from your face, which is the point of a headshot.

If you have a question about any of these topics, ask your photographer for advice. We want you to look the VERY BEST YOU!
