Does Your Headshot Look Like You?
When it comes to your profile photo for work, dating, and social media…it needs to look like you. That means, it has to look like the you that you are now, and not how you looked ten years ago. 😬
We all know that first impressions are important, and your headshot is your chance to make a great one. But if your photo doesn’t look like you, it can actually do more harm than good.
Here’s the tough love: if your headshot looks like you’re trying too hard, or worse, like you don’t care at all, people will notice. And that’s not the impression you want to give.
So how can you make sure your headshot looks like you? By being yourself! Dressing the way you normally dress, wearing your hair the way you normally wear it, wearing makeup in a way that you can apply it yourself, and smile naturally. That’s the key to looking authentic in your photo and not alarming people when they meet you in real life in-person or on video.
When you’re ready to update your headshot and wondering what you should wear, go for comfort and colors that bring out your eyes.The most important thing is to wear something that matches your personality, personal style, and is comfortable, meaning not too big or small.
Comfortable clothes, as in fitting properly, will help you not be self-conscious, so you’ll be able to relax more when the camera goes click.
Plus, you don’t want to show up in real life, and surprise or disappoint people when they meet you. You want them to see the real you, not some fake persona.
Your headshot should be a true reflection of who you are, so wear something that makes you feel attractive and confident. You’ll be happy with the results when you do.
