Senior Pictures- Hairstyles & Makeup Tips

-with Makayla Gibbs

Hello! I recently had the opportunity to work with Makalya Gibbs of Young Hair Studio for one of my Senior Picture sessions. Do you have a hard time keeping curls in your hair? Or getting makeup to stay on your face? Or what about picking the right hairstyles?! You’re going to want to read the tips Makayla has given us below! These are definitely things to keep in mind when preparing for your senior pictures!

Makayla is a licensed cosmetologist of almost 12 years. “I love doing full transformations to help people feel most confident in themselves”, she gushes! She is married to her high school sweetheart, 8 years and counting now! She also has two adorable shih tzus that are her babies. You can find some of her recent work for me here.

Now for those hairstyles and makeup tips!! Get your pad out and jot these down!!! Once you have gotten the tips, she is also offering something else for you all!!

Tip #1 For makeup to stay all day long I recommend using a primer AND a setting spray.

Tip #2 When looking for a new hairstyle or color look for pictures with similar skin tones and facial shapes as yours

Tip #3 When curling your hair curl the front away from you face, spray light to medium hold hairspray and always let your curls cool before combing or fingering them out

“I am an artist your hair is my canvas.” – Makayla Gibbs

Anyone that books an appointment with Makayla over at Young Hair Studio will receive 10% off if you mention myself, Candace Retmier, or this blog post. (Good for any service!) I highly recommend you get in her books quick, I know she fills up quick for wedding season.

Thanks for reading!
