When preparing for a headshot, it’s best to choose neutral colors and darker tones for at least one outfit. It’s also a good idea to opt for solid fabrics and longer sleeves. Layer textures and accessories to create a unique look, and for your second or third outfit, feel free to experiment with some bright colors and patterns. Here’s a post on what to wear from Indeed.
CLIENT NOTE TO NEW HIRES
Here’s a Client note that I send to “New Hires” about What to Wear for your Headshots. “It’s always important to make a good first impression, and dressing professionally can definitely help with that. I think the suggestion of wearing a black, navy, or grey blazer with a light-colored shirt is a great idea, especially for men if they add a tie. It’s also a good call to avoid patterns, bright colors, worn clothing, low necklines, and flashy jewelry to keep the focus on your professional image”. Thanks again for sharing the message!
What should I do to prepare for a professional headshot session?
It’s essential to take care of a few things in advance:
- Ensure you get plenty of rest and stay hydrated by drinking enough water.
- Choose your outfit ahead of time and make sure it’s clean and ironed. Trimming your hair at least one week before the session is also a good idea to have time to settle. You can practice your posing and facial expressions in front of the mirror to feel more confident during the session.
- Arrive at the session early to allow enough time to get settled and comfortable before the photoshoot begins.
- Keep your makeup and hair natural, and avoid trying a new hairstyle or extra makeup just before your portrait. Remember, less is usually more!
