One of the things that all girls worry about during senior pictures is what they’re going to do with their hair. Up, down, half up, straight, curly? So many options and so many beautiful outcomes. But how to choose? I’m here to walk you through it and hopefully you’ll be able to make a decision quicker. When deciding what to do with your hair for senior pictures, it's important to consider a few factors, such as your personal style, the overall look you want to achieve, and what will complement your features and outfit. Keep reading to hear all about my tips for the perfect hair.
1. Classic and Timeless: The best hair style is one that is timeless. A hairstyle that doesn’t distract or that will look good years down the line will be the one that you will be the happiest with. If you choose a hairstyle that is more trendy, you may like it at the moment but it doesn’t always stand the test of time. Think of the 80’s hair bigger than ever imaginable. I would consider opting for simple and elegant hairstyles. A sleek blowout, soft waves, or a polished updo can create a sophisticated look that highlights your facial features.
2. Glamorous and Formal: Natural and timeless hair is amazing and it’s gorgeous. But I know there are some of you who want a little bit more of a glamor look. For you beauties out there who really want an elegant and beautiful look this one is for you. Make a statement and consider an updo such as a chic bun, a voluminous ponytail, or an intricate braided hairstyle. Curl that hair and maybe add some accessories like hairpins or a headband can elevate the glam factor.
3. Consult with a Stylist: If after reading this, you're unsure about what style would suit you best, consider scheduling a consultation with a professional hairstylist.

Hair is a big decision when it comes to your senior pictures. Be sure you are choosing a hair style you feel most comfortable with. If you never wear your hair down but choose to for your pictures, maybe try out hair down for a couple days so you are used to it. However you are comfortable that is what will make your pictures turn out great! Reach out so I can get you on the calendar for you senior pictures!
