Professional hair and makeup styling services

Updated: Nov 29

During my time specializing in headshots and business portraits, I've noticed that hiring a professional hair and makeup stylist before a session helps to create the great experience and the best final photos. It takes away the worry and pressure of doing your own hair and makeup and it gives you time to relax and be pampered before your headshot session. Stylists who have worked on photo or film shoots have perfected techniques to help you look your best in photos.

Unless I'm working on a commercial or editorial job, hair and makeup fees ($150 for hair and makeup styling, $100 for either service separately) are paid directly to the stylists. If you would like your stylist to stay during the session to help with touch ups or a second "look" the cost is $50 an hour.

Steps for adding hair and makeup.

1. Sign the proposal and paid for half your session.

2. Let me know that you want to add hair and makeup services.

3. I will find a talented hair and makeup artist for your session date and time.

4. I will send you an introductory email so that you can arrange for payment and send 2-3 inspiration images for how you'd like your hair and makeup done.

5. Look for a calendar invite so you know exactly what time and where you are meeting them.

All of these hair and makeup artists are personable, fun and extremely talented at what they do. They are experienced with all tones and types of skin (oily, dry, combination etc.)
