Let’s face it, hair is important. It wouldn’t be a fast growing 4.8-billion-dollar industry in Australia if us women weren’t fussed, would it? With that in mind, we asked our stylist to give us some advice on the best way to wear our hair for our boudoir shoot and she’s given us The 5 Best Boudoir Hairstyles for you to try out for yourself! Which do you think you would rock at your shoot?
It’s definitely the all-time favourite hair style of the studio and works for playful, tousled looks as well as refined and classy portraits as well. Although it might take a bit of effort to get those curls in there, we always think it’s worth the effort and works especially well for women who naturally have long straight hair who want to keep it down but want a slightly different look to what they’re used to. It can be equally beneficial for women who have a bit of root growth as the texturing in the hair lessens the effect! 10/10 every time.
2) Coloured hair
Similar to its’ skin counterpart, we think coloured hair really makes photos pop, and in a boudoir shoot it can also be a great way to tie together an outfit! It may even add just that splash of colour in an otherwise neutral image which creates real drama. Although coloured hair can require a fair bit of maintenance, the photos last forever, so we figure it’s definitely a worthwhile investment! We also love clients that come in with beautiful colour in their hair because it’s just a little bit different, and the best boudoir shoots are always the ones that were personalised by lingerie, tattoos, character and accessories!
3) Straight and sleek
Again, for women who have naturally curly hair, it may be a great opportunity to wear a slightly different look to go with your sexy alter ego. For those who already have naturally straight hair, you can literally be hair ready in a matter of minutes and a quick spritz of hair spray! Straight and sleek is definitely a good idea in general for those who favour length – a word of warning however, if you have hair extensions which are not cut in properly to your own hair or significantly longer than your natural hair, the sleek look may not be for you as it will stick out like a sore thumb.
4) Half up half down
Can’t decide whether to wear it up or down? Well, then this is pretty much the perfect hairstyle for you! The half up, half down look is irresistibly feminine and lends itself to iconic styles like boho chic and gypsy elegance. Definitely one to try for long to mid hair lengths – and you can always drop the hair all the way down during the shoot to get two looks.
5) Pin up:
When were thinking about what to include for The 5 Best Boudoir Hairstyles, Pin up was actually one of the first we thought of! Pin up hairstyles have never truly gone out of fashion, despite being recognizable as the signature style of the 40’s and 50’s. Pin up is fantastic because there’s a look for every length, cut and colour of hair – everything from finger waves, victory rolls, rockabilly rosie, the bombshell, retro roll up-dos and many more. Funnily enough, pin up works exceedingly well for boudoir photo shoots, as is evident by the fact that for decades “pin up” was used to refer to calendars, posters and magazine folds which were so beautiful and sexy that you just had to pin it up on the wall – classic.
We hope you found The Five Best Boudoir Hairstyles useful; with so many things to plan, like what underwear to bring, how you want to see yourself on the day and what kind of mood you might be looking for in your shoot, we thought we’d make it even easier! Don’t forget, our photographer and stylist is always happy to do over the phone or in-person consultations to help style your photo shoot for you.
