Photograph Hair like a Pro



Natural lighting is ideal so step outside! Natural light shows the true colors of the hair vs. relying on your salon lighting. If going outside is not an option for you, then grab a ring light.

We know your work is always flawless but before you snap any pics, make sure the hair looks smooth and all flyaways are tamed.

Work Every Angle

Not every client will be a natural in front of the camera, you just need to know how to give them direction. Pick a pose or angle you like best and use this as your signature post so your feed keeps a cohesive aesthetic.

Choose a Solid Background



No clutter, preferably blank white/black background, or plain colored wall.

Take 100s of photos and even a couple of videos, this way you will have tons to choose from when picking the one that best showcases your incredible work!
