Picture day comes around once a year every year during your school years and you want to make sure that your hair is perfect for the occasion, or at least a little better than every other I-woke-up-late day. After all, this is how people will remember you for when they are feeling nostalgic and peak back at the good old days.
Although you might love your topknot or slicked back ponytail, they don’t always photograph the best in a straight-on shot that you’ll have for picture day. It’s better to opt for something that shows off your tresses, flatters your facial features and compliments your face shape. Here are some of our favorite hairstyles for your picture day.
Loose Side-Swept Braid
A hairstyle that comes down around the side is going to picture well, especially if it’s on the side that you’re slightly turned on the stool in front of the camera. Leave the braid soft and loose to frame your face and keep things casual and cute for your school photo. If you’re someone who loves accessories, add a boho-style headband.
Two Twists with Hair Left Down
This is a hairstyle that can work for both short and long hair. The twist at the front of your hair will keep your hair pulled off your face and show off your make-up and smile but the length being left down will add balance to your face shape. We recommend you find some cute and simple earrings to wear since your ears will be on display.
If you (or your daughter) is one of those girls who just loves to throw her hair back in a ponytail and call it a school day, then you don’t want to change anything up too much. This YearBook photo should be a reflection of who you are . A side ponytail will show off your love of the simple look but also look more flattering in the shot. Tousle the tresses for a chicer look and wrap your hair around the elastic for a cool and natural finish.
Voluminous Bun Yearbook Updo
If you want to wear an updo for your picture day then we recommend you keep it bold and loose – or at least high and proud to show off your tresses. Because you won’t have a double shot in the yearbook showing off your stellar and intricate bun. It’s all about what you can see from the front. Adding a lot of volume at the crown will show off your style or a high topknot will surely be on display on your photo.
