Looking Good in Photos: Hairstyling

May 01, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

My Signature Portrait Sessions include professional hairstyling and makeup application. Limited Headshot sessions, however, have you come hair-and-makeup ready. You are, of course, going to be photographed on other occasions, too. Anticipate them!

  1. Touch up your color, if you use it, but don’t make any major changes; if you don’t like it, you clearly won’t like your photos.
  2. Make sure you pay special attention to the front of your style; we won’t see the back.
  3. Even if you don’t normally use it, hairspray not only can help build volume, it’s a miracle-worker against flyaways (and if you don’t use it, I might ask if I can).

During a portrait session, regardless of type, I will watch out for stray strands and put them back into place.


Ready for some great photographs? Let’s get to know each other over coffee (or smoothies… or milkshakes…), and talk about celebrating your life’s true beauty in images you love. You can reach me at [email protected] or (434) 226-0365. You can also schedule a consultation at https://calendly.com/maggietakespix; pick a time convenient for you, and let me know where you'd like to meet!

My Promise: Together, we will create amazing photos you’ll want to share. How do you want to be photographed?
