Blake Reed Evans, Sam Villa ambassador, salon owner and social media coach, gives tips on how to prepare for an IG shoot.
"Being prepared allows you to steal a couple minutes here and there to capture the amazing work you've done in a short amount of time," says Evans.
1. Keep a bag filled with hair essentials you may need to grab in a hurry, so you don't have to waste time searching for products.
2. Think of easy ways to get different looks quickly. If doing a ponytail, develop it further by creating a classic tail in the center of the head and loop it through an elastic, add a striking accessory, then pin it up, texturize it, braid it...have fun!
3. Raise the camera/phone high, tilt it down and lean it forward and backward to capture the perfect angle and lighting for the hair. Some salons even have ring lights and shooting stations; take advantage of these resources.
