Why Hair and Makeup Matters for Portrait Photography

Updated: Jan 20, 2023

When was the last time you paid to have your hair and makeup done? As women, we typically will spend money to have our hair done every six weeks or so. Did you know that the average woman will spend over $55,000 on hair and beauty in her lifetime?!

"From getting highlights and trims at the salon to shampooing, blow drying and styling at home, women invest a lot of money and time into their hair. According to a new survey conducted by, those numbers equate to roughly $80 and 11 hours per month." -

At Simply Beyoutiful Photography, we take care of your beauty needs so that all you have to do is show up and look your best. We want to make things simple! Some ask: "Is it necessary?" We see it as an essential part of our luxury photography experience, and here's why:

1. It takes one more thing off your plate.

We know that taking photos can be stressful. Whether you're a new mom, trying to wrangle 4 kids for family photos, or a hard working professional, you want images that look even better than you can imagine. By taking just one more thing off your shoulders, you can focus on what matters!

2. It gives you confidence!

There's nothing better than looking at yourself in the mirror and thinking to yourself, "Day-um! I look GOOD!" When you feel your best, you will stand taller, straighten your shoulders, and give that million-dollar smile for the camera.
