Why Do Pro Hair and Makeup for Senior Portraits | AHP Seniors

Why Do Pro Hair and Makeup for Senior Portraits

Wondering why you should do pro hair and makeup for your senior portraits? You’re in the right place. Having a professional style your hair and makeup for your session makes a huge difference, not just in how you look on camera, but also in how you feel. Every AHP senior portrait session includes this service, and there are a few big reasons why.

The AHP Experience

Our goal at AHP is to create an ah-mazing experience for our seniors, which is just as important as the final portraits. With years of experience, we know what it takes to create a senior portrait experience unlike any other. Part of that includes making sure none of our seniors have to worry about their hair or makeup. A professional hair and makeup artist (HMUA) does your hair and makeup before your senior session, giving you a couple of hours of feeling like the star of the show.

You’ll work with your HMUA to coordinate your look with the outfits you bring for your session – or that you borrow from the AHP Style Closet. That’s right, not only do you have your pro HMUA for your AHP senior portraits, you’ll also have access to an on-trend wardrobe. I keep the AHP Style Closet filled to the brim with the season’s latest styles, including fun accessories, shoes, and coats.

You’ll Be Camera Ready with Pro Hair and Makeup

A professional hair and makeup artist knows how to make sure you look amazing. They use the correct products for your skin tone and coloring, but also for being in front of the camera. There is a difference between everyday and professional makeup. Professional, camera-ready makeup is their specialty. Our artists have years of experience and training to make sure you look your absolute best. And that knowledge translates to the best senior portraits. Our seniors always look like themselves, the pro HMUA simply highlights their natural beauty and favorite features. Be sure to scroll through to see some before and after shots of our gorgeous seniors.

Feel Pampered Before Your Senior Portraits

Having a pro handle your hair and makeup before your big day means less stress for you. You won’t be running around trying to find time to pick out a lip color while curling your hair. We take care of all of that. And our pros use high-end, luxury makeup to have you looking your absolute best. All you have to do is bring your smiling face to our ah-mazing studio in downtown Tacoma.

Get Inspired Before Your Session

To set the tone for your senior portrait session, I highly recommend using Pinterest! You can follow me for ideas by clicking here. And keep in mind that creating a detailed Pinterest board for your session will help me get an idea of who you are, what you like, and what you want your senior portraits to look like.

You’ll want to pin photos that match your fashion style, your hair, and what makeup looks you love. It helps me to see your favorite colors, and what magazine images you are drawn to. I want to see all the locations you love, living spaces you’d want to live in, and anything else that inspires you!

Get Your Nails Done

We take care of your hair, makeup, and wardrobe inspiration for your senior portrait session. But there is one important task you will need to do before your session: get your nails done. A professional manicure will make all the difference for your senior portraits. You would be surprised how often poses show your hands and peeling or chipped nails can be a distraction.

I have all the tips you need for preparing for your senior session below, and details on how to get your AHP senior session on the books. I can’t wait to pamper you for your ah-mazing senior portraits.
