Your hair is one of the most essential parts of your body that will help you express yourself with great confidence. However, that will work only if the hair is styled well. Especially for a portfolio shoot, you would want to wear your hair with pride. There are hairstyles that look good for some particular models but not on you. Then how do you decide which one will suit you best? The best fitting hairstyles are found out by taking into account various factors like face shape, personality, the set for the shoot and your clothing.Here are a few factors that you will want to consider while you are choosing the perfect hairstyle for yourself.
The shape of your face is one of the most important aspects that will be considered while choosing a hairstyle. For example, if you have a long face, you wouldn’t want to go for long hair because this will just make your face look longer than it already is. Medium haircuts can work well for such women.
Long Hair, let down:
Let down long hair can prove to be a great tool to express yourself for a shoot but one should be careful. Short models and the ones with longer faces shouldn’t really opt for them. If you are either of these, try considering braiding them or getting a shorter haircut.
Your hair will speak a great deal about your personality in the shoot. For example, to attain a boyish look, you can ask your stylist to cut your hair very short or even give you a buzz cut. On the other hand for a spring theme, if you are to portray a fun girl, you can consider getting your hair curled. For a professional look though, you can try a medium length hairstyle.
Choose a Hairstyle That Works With Your Hair Texture
Each one of us can classify our hair into one or more hair texture types: dry, coarse, curly, wavy, straight, fine, stringy, limp, and oily.
We all have a variety of hair types: dry, coarse, curly, wavy, straight, fine, stringy, limp, and oily. Naturally, the colour that will suit these different types will be different.
If you have thin, stringy hair that tends to fall flat, your hair will look fuller the shorter it is.
For thinner hair, it will be better to cut them short. That way they will appear to have more volume. They will appear fuller. For the ones with curly and frizzy hair, you might want to try to weigh them down with the length. Their texture will also be accentuated and will stand out beautifully this way.
Same goes for colour as well. Voluminous haircuts should be coloured darker. The flat, straight ones can go for blonder shades in hair colors. A woman with long curly hair coloured red in the bottom will enhance the natural element of the hair. This is because lighter shades will blow out the appearance and the darker ones will make it sleek.
If you aren’t sure though, about the kind of hairstyle that you want to go with, you can keep your hair shoulder length and keep experimenting. The writer, Linda Wells, stated that almost everyone at Allure Magazine where she works has shoulder-length hair. Turns out shoulder-length hairstyles are universally the most flattering on nearly everyone.
