Do you have a session coming up that you want to look stunning for? My goal at Ever After Photography is to turn your session into memories that you can cherish forever. I want you to look back at your photos and remember exactly how you were feeling at that moment and why it was so special to you.
While a perfect appearance isn’t everything, it’s important to be confident in the way you look during your photo session. When you feel good about yourself, you’ll want to smile more, and your happiness will radiate through your pictures. Consider trying these tips to get your hair and smile ready for photo day.
1. Get Professional Hair and Makeup
If you’re someone who wants to achieve flawless skin and hair for your photos, hiring a pro to come to your shoot is a great option. Professional hair and makeup artists such as Barbara Elizondo offer this service as a fabulous way to get you looking picture-perfect for your shoot.
Whether you want your hair to be full of volume or ultra-sleek, a blowout is the perfect way to make it look exactly how you want. Barbara uses high-quality products to deliver you a customized hairstyle that can last for days.
2. Apply a Hair Mask
Sometimes washing and conditioning isn’t enough, and your hair needs something extra. Hair masks are great for improving the look of your luscious locks. There are a variety of masks to choose from including ones that help tame frizzy hair, repair split ends, and nourish dry hair, but my favorite is Keratin by Revicare.
Hairstylists recommend applying a mask to your hair a couple of times a week leading up to your big day for best results.
3. Smooth Down Flyaways with Specialized Products
Life can get pretty busy at times, and we don’t always have time to get our hair professionally done or wait for products to start working before picture day. If you’re looking for a way to control your flyaways so that your hair looks flawless in your photos, try using a smoothing serum. Many stylists swear by treatments that contain Moroccan argan oil.
After applying the oil to your hair, using a long hold hairspray will ensure your style says in place during your entire photo session.
4. Brighten Your Smile
A vibrant smile is one of the most attractive features that anyone can have, and it’s often a sign of happiness. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, consider speaking to a local dentist such as Dr. John Berchelmann to see if you’re a candidate. He offers customized treatments depending on your desired shade and sensitivity level.
5. Home Remedies to Brighten Your Smile
For those who don’t have time to whiten their smile or are sensitive to strong whitening ingredients used in whitening strips, using products that naturally whiten over time may be just what you need.
Try one or more of the following products if you want to achieve a brighter smile:
Activated charcoal toothpaste -- the natural absorbing properties are good for absorbing the stains on your teeth.
Baking soda -- not only does it help remove stains, but it also helps kill bacteria
Coconut oil -- swish it around in your mouth for at least five minutes
Love Your Appearance on Photo Day
Having professional photos taken is a great way to remember a big event or milestone in your life. How you look and feel during your session will affect how the pictures turn out, so taking extra steps to achieve beautiful hair and a stunning smile will ensure you’re satisfied with the entire experience.
