Wardrobe & Make up for the Actor's HeadShot

Talent should look like their headshot on a casting! It should be a flattering, yet realistic portrayal of the talent! It is important to accentuate the eyes. Try to match the mood of your market/character/look.

What Works Well for Headshots:

  • For your commercial headshot vibrant fresh solid colors such as blues, reds, greens, etc.
  • For more dramatic headshot medium tones and textures work well, like denim, nice cottons, cords, suede, leather, etc.
  • Long sleeves are best. Unless you have a body worth marketing! Jeans, dark pants, and khakis are fine. Just be comfortable.
  • For men button down shirts, polo shirts, collared shirts, sweaters, and nice T's.
    Hint: please bring under shirts!
  • For women scoop neck, button down, sweaters, polo's, etc., try to match your market.
  • Styles such as Polo, Abercrombie, Gap, American Eagle, etc. Work well.
  • Nice but casual.
  • Let your market and character dictate your wardrobe.

    What Does Not Work Well!

  • No jewelry!
  • No pastel colors! Its not Easter pictures!
  • Avoid logos, prints, and writing!
  • Avoid small tops unless you have great arms and body that are worth trying to market!
  • Dresses and skirts do not work quite as well.
  • White tends to draw the eye too much so use it sparingly.
  • You don't want anything that will take away from you in the shot!

    Corporate/Spokesperson:

    Wear solid, middle to dark tone business suit or pants suit. Bring a few light colored shirts for under the jacket, and a few ties (nothing crazy) to choose from.

    The Hair:

    Be sure hair is healthy and good length. Remember hair cuts can take a couple days to grow in. Hair should be in style and easily maintainable.

    For headshots hair should usually be down and loose. Make sure roots are colored. Pluck unwanted facial hair. No unibrows. Have hands and nails in good condition.

    Important Photo Shoot Notes:

  • Do not bring extra people to shoot! Its distracting, time consuming, and unprofessional.
  • Make sure your wardrobe is cleaned, ironed, and on hangers. Not crumpled in a bag!
  • When using a make up artist arrive with out make up, and with your hair down.
  • It is better to bring more clothes to choose from for the photo shoot! Don't just bring one or two items to wear.

    Please note: I shoot with my own make up artists/assistants! My make up artists are professional and are familiar with my lighting style, and what is expected and accepted in the industry, which for head shots is a clean, refreshing, natural look. They are there throughout the shoot to assist in touching up make up, "shine", hair, and wardrobe.
