Generally no, and for good reason. Building trust and credibility in business requires setting and meeting expectations so it’s important that you look in your business headshot like you look in real life.
If someone meets you in person after having seen your headshot and they feel surprised, you’re off to a bad start. That means your hair and makeup target is your everyday best, not “flawless” or heavily made-up.
That said, if having a professional do your hair and make-up would make you feel more confident showing up for your headshot photo session, you have my full blessing (confidence matters!). If you choose to get your hair and make-up done, be sure to ask your stylist for a very “natural” look.
My favorite makeup artist located just down the street from my Issaquah studio is Megan @ Hologram Beauty
