Make sure your hair looks at it’s best when the flash goes off with these top tips from our favorite hair experts…
‘In photographs you never see your hairstyle from every angle as you would in real life, so a chic up-do can end up looking severe and unflattering if it’s pulled back too tightly’ says hair stylist Adam Reed, 'if you want to wear your hair up then keep it soft and loose to frame your face and add texture’.
‘If you’re wearing your hair down you need to ensure that it doesn’t end up limp and lifeless halfway through the evening’ says hair stylist Leigh Keates. ‘Beachy waves work well as they’ll just get looser throughout the evening and look even better.
If you’re worried about your hair looking a bit flat just as the camera appears – a quick trick that we use on photo-shoots is to tip your head upside-down, give it a quick rub at the roots and then flip it back and bring all your hair to the front of your shoulders – this will make it look really full and healthy’.
The style to avoid
‘Over-straightened hair can look very strange in photos’ says Adam, ‘it just looks very flat and does nothing for your features – dragging your whole face down, hair with movement is much more flattering’.
