Change your hair, Slay your selfie!
In order to truly ace the art of taking selfies on Instagram you need to switch it up and make sure your hair is on point. After all, if your hair isn’t in tip-top shape you won’t be at the top of your selfie game.
Today we’re going to guide you through the process of slaying your selfie.
- Do a New Do
First of all, if you feel like you have a good grasp of your selfie game but not so much of your hair game, it’s time to make a change. There’s nothing more fulfilling than getting a hot new cut or colour, or both! Switch up your hair, try a different style and boost your selfie confidence through the roof. We take the selfie game seriously, just sayin’.
- To Get It Right, Get a Light
Lighting is so important, and every professional photographer can talk for days about the importance of lighting in photographs. Use the light to your advantage, and literally shed some light on your hair. If you can, stand close to a solid source of lighting, preferably natural lighting. In order to avoid any dark shadows or harsh lines keep the light source in front of you and just a tiny bit above the eye level as it’s the most flattering.
- Get Moving
It’s important to strike a pose that you love the most and stay there, it’s also crucial to keep your hair moving. Flip it, sweep it, tousle it, and hold it. Simply move it around and take selfies as you go. In this frenzy of hair poses you never know which one is going to be the golden one.
- Edit to Perfection
You don’t have to be a professional to edit photos, Instagram itself offers a variety of choices for editing. However if you’re not really into Insta-editing, try out Afterlight.
