After scheduling your headshot appointment, you still have some important decisions to make. One of the most important choices is deciding what you or your child will wear for their headshot photos. Your wardrobe can make or break your headshots, so this is not a decision to be taken lightly. Follow these wardrobe guidelines to ensure that your headshots showcase all your best features.
First let’s talk colors. The wrong colors can make your child look washed out or like they are glowing. With this is mind, be sure to stay away from white, pastels, baby colors, or any other colors that are super light. You will also want to avoid black, unless your child is specifically going for a bad/troubled kid type of role.
On the other hand, fun and vibrant colors are where it’s at! Stick to the jewel tones, such as turquoise, royal blue, dark purple, green, or red. Some other great color choices are yellow, navy, orange, or coral. Dark washed denim is also a safe bet.
Once you decide on a color, make sure it is a solid color. Patterns such as stripes, polka dots, gingham, hearts, etc. do NOT photograph well. If your child’s wardrobe is too busy, it will take away from their features. You also want to avoid any type of logos, brands, or graphics because they could be a conflict of interest for an agent or role. Overalls, bows, suits, and hats are a few other wardrobe choices that do not belong in a headshot photo. Collared shirts can be a good choice, as well as a button-up plaid shirt layered over a bright shirt.
If your child is under 12 months old, be sure to make them look their age. In addition to the guidelines above, a baby boy should not be wearing a collared shirt. Baby girls (or non-walkers) should not wear a dress. Dresses tend to cover their entire legs and sometimes feet, causing them to look like a fabric sack with toes hanging out. Clients need to be able to see their bodies for sizing and fitting purposes.
Regardless of what you choose for your child’s wardrobe, PLEASE be sure that it is steamed/ironed/dry-cleaned and stain-free. There is nothing worse that getting a headshot with wrinkled, stained, or otherwise messy clothing.
Now that you have chosen an outfit, let’s move on to accessories. When it comes to headshot photos, the best accessories are no accessories. This means no earrings, teething necklaces, gold chains, bracelets, or jewelry of any kind.
How you style your child’s hair is also particularly important. For both boys and girls, stay away from hair gel. Gel and other hair products tend to look wet in photos, which just makes your child look sweaty. Casting directors and photographers need to see what they are working with, so hair should always be worn down and natural for the majority of the shoot. Boys should stay away from fauxhawks and mohawks, and girls should stay away from ponytails. An exception would be for a baby girl with a ton of hair. In that case, a small barrette or thin headband is acceptable for some of the photos.
Last, let’s talk about shoes. For babies up to the age of 12 months, and non-walkers, the best shoe choice is no shoes. Bare feet are best on babies. For all other ages, keep the shoes simple. Choose plain black shoes, or another neutral color such as navy or grey. Converse are great and are also great for auditions. Just like with the clothing, though, be sure that your child’s shoes are new or at least clean and new looking.
Remember, when in doubt, keep it simple. If you follow these wardrobe guidelines, your child is sure to have classy, professional headshot photos to show agents and casting directors.
