Headshots: Which Colors Will Flatter Your Hair and Eye Color?
When I book headshot sessions, I provide my clients with a pdf of wardrobe suggestions to help them get ready for their session. Below are some simple tips for choosing colors that will flatter your hair and eye color. The colors you wear have a huge impact on your headshot!
Pick a shirt that matches your eye color:
Look at how her blue eyes pop against that deep blue color of her shirt.
Look at how the army green shirt brings out the green in her eyes.
Pick a shirt color that is a complementary color to hair:
You may be wondering what a complementary color is. Well, if you take a look at the color wheel, colors that are directly opposite from each other are considered complementary colors. When these colors are paired together, they create a lot of contrast and enhance one another. So, wearing a complementary color to your hair color will enhance the color of your hair.
Blond hair with a purple shirt
Blonds have a lot of yellow in their hair color, so purple is a great color to wear. Blue is also a good option.
Red hair with a teal sweater
Red hair often is a red-orange color. Teal, which is a blue-green color, is a great complement to red-orange hues.
But what about brunettes or people with gray hair?
Brunettes have a lot of flexibility in choosing colors. But, blue is a great option in most cases.
For those with gray hair try rich blues, greens, and purples
