What is it for?. The business you work determines the way you dress. That is true for any work the same way it’s right for your head shot. Do you dress up or casually at work?. A lawyer may put on a suit and tie while a celebrity can wear a button-up or v neck. A construction supervisor may wear a plaid collared shirt and jeans. You need to consider your profession.

Dress like you

Your headshot is going to make the first impression that will help land that job you desire. It is essential your head shot is present and looks like you. Always wear what makes you comfortable and confident. Show off your personality and maintain a professional look for your profession.

Wear colours that bring out your eyes and enhance your skin tone and hair colour. We want your eyes to pop because they are the very first thing someone notices about your head shots. What colours make you feel beautiful, handsome or comfortable in?

Keep away from distraction

Avoid busy patterns of clothes that distract from the eyes and face since your eyes must be seen first.

Your eyes are a window to your soul! For the ladies, it is a fantastic idea to put on a top that brings out your neckline and keep jewelry to a minimum. Do not wear turtlenecks or scarves, seeing your neckline will make you look slimmer. Wear what you love, like clothes which make you feel confident and comfortable! You have to love it. The camera will show the confidence on your face. If you are wearing what you love, you will like your headshots.

You should style your hair like you would wear it to an important meeting, but better. Don’t shampoo the same day, second-day hair consistently styles better. That said, don’t overuse hair products on wash day or you’ll struggle with styling it. For medium to long hair. You should use the evening before to pre-blow-dry some volume in.

You only need your hair to stay looking good for your head shot. Use a light hold hair spray so that you can control it and touch-up during outfit changes.

Buy some shine spray to lightly spritz over your entire head once you’re finished styling. This may give your hair life and reflection. Plus, you can spritz your brush with hair spray to help tame flyaway hairs.


Before you book your headshot session with EyeMedia Studios. Snap a few selfies in your styled looks. They’ll be nowhere near the quality of the photo shoot, but you’ll get an idea to whether you like the look.
