If you're an actress and are getting ready to pay for a new set of professional head shots, then it is important that you look as good as possible. You don't want to rely on Photoshop and other image altering effects. You should try and look great on camera and then only do very minor touch ups with software if there is a real problem. Many of the best photographers really frown upon any sort of post work being done in software, and they prefer to get it right on camera. Here's a few things to get done before your big day.

Keratin Treatments For Your Hair

Your hair should look amazing, and one of the best ways to do this is to visit a salon and get a keratin treatment done. This is popular with all of the actresses and on-camera newswomen. It will make your hair look super smooth. Really, there is nothing you can do in post production that will create a similar effect, so you can't rely on fixing this afterwards in a software program.


If your skin is looking drab, then you should consider getting microdermabrassion. This is a fantastic way to rejuvenate your skin. It's more intense than a regular facial and can freshen up your skin and remove lots of tiny sun spots and little blemishes that will show up in camera. This way you don't have to go overboard with the makeup and foundation, which is always good because too much makeup isn't advisable One thing you do need to remember is that you should get this done a bit in advance of your actual photo session because your skin can look a bit raw the day following a session.

Dental Crowns

If you're been smiling for years with closed lips, trying to hid jagged teeth or chips, then you need to get that corrected. Even if you take a series of head shots with closed lip smiles (which is not advisable) you are eventually going to have to actually meet with a casting agent, and there is no way to hide crooked or damaged teeth. Your dentist will be able to look at the teeth and determine if you will need a crown. They will file down the old, chipped tooth and then anchor in a nice, perfect looking tooth crown. It will let you smile with confidence, and your photos will look amazing. To learn more about dental crowns, check out dentists' sites like http://www.mysunshinedentistry.com/.
