Hair Stylist

Hiring a professional hairstylist for your senior portraits is a great way to ensure you will love how your hair looks in your photos. 

Professional hair stylists aren’t just good at doing hair—they’re good at keeping it done. 

They have a lot of time-tested styling techniques and all the products imaginable to keep your style locked in place and looking perfect. 

If you aren’t sure at what exact look you are going for, a hairstylist can help you pick out the perfect hair style.

A great place to get your hairstyle done for your senior portraits is Ruby and Clover which is located just north of downtown Rochester, MI.

Makeup Artist 

One reason to hire a makeup artist is that makeup that looks amazing in person versus in photographs is very different.

These professionals have years of experience and use high-quality products to make you look your best in front of the lens!  

If you don’t usually wear a lot of makeup you can always have them apply an amount that creates a look that you’re comfortable with. Professional makeup can still be very natural looking. 

There are many great makeup artists to choose from. When looking for a makeup artist look at their reviews and ask to see photos of prior makeup they have done.

One place you can have your makeup professionally done is at Ulta Beauty. Check with your local Ulta to see if they are currently accepting appointments.

Another place located in Rochester, MI to get your makeup done is Rochester Beauty Bar. They are experienced in creating the perfect customized look that enhances your natural beauty.
