Solid color tops are recommended for a headshot look. Bring options that show off your eye or hair color. Stay away from low necklines. Avoid busy patterns and textures, the focus should be on you. To add variety, you can add layers to your headshot outfit. For example, a solid colored shirt with a jean jacket, blazer, or cardigan.
FORMAL - girls
Solid color dress and heels, ankle boots, or wedges. Layer with a jacket or blazer to mix it up. A skirt with a form-fitting blouse is a great option as well. Be sure the skirt falls at a proper length according to your height. With your arms resting down by your side, finger tip length is a good rule of thumb for minimum skirt length.
FORMAL - guys
Blazer, cardigan, or a form-fitting button up shirt with dress slacks. Pair with dress shoes and a belt to complete the look.
CASUAL - girls
Solid color top with jeans paired with heels, boots, or Converse sneakers. Mix casual and formal with a v-neck shirt, dressy blazer, jeans, and heels. Or a dress with button up long sleeve shirt to wrap around the waist.
CASUAL - guys
Jeans, khakis, casual button up shirt, jean jacket, or solid color polo shirts are great options.
-Nails should be clean, trimmed, and manicured with natural rounded edges. Longer nails are distracting. The nail shouldn't extend much longer than your nail bed (see image below).
-If using polish, a fresh and even coat of clear polish or a nude color like taupe are recommended. Nude tones are universally flattering and work with any outfit. Your nails should look natural and not distract.
-Girls: bring your nail polish to the shoot for any touch ups.
Congrats, you are well on your way to an amazing shoot.
See you at the studio! We are looking forward to working with you.
