Just as certain clothes are more flattering in pictures than others and different shades of makeup can help bring out your best features when the flash hits, there’s an important rule of thumb when it comes to photographing your hair.
Make sure the light--whether it's from the sun or a camera--is positioned in front of you.
If the light is behind you, it emphasizes any frizz or flyways. Not to mention, it shines through your hair, which can make it look thinner in photos. Front lighting gives strands a nice, healthy sheen--and does wonders for your skin by softening any harsh lines or shadows. It’s pretty much a win all-around.
