There’s a selfie for everything, and since crazy hair colours are all the rage now, we won’t blame you for indulging in a little narcissism. Here are five tips to capture the fiercest helfie (hair selfie, geddit?).
- Keep your hair the focal point
Your hair is so on point, you don’t even need all of your face in the picture.
- Sweep it casually over one eye
Bonus: You’ll end up looking like a va va voom Jessica Rabbit.
- Close-ups aren’t always a good thing
Technically this isn’t a selfie, but if you want a good picture of the back of your head… well there’s only so much you can do with a selfie stick. In this case, a wide-shot works best.
- Pick the most flattering angle
For hairstyles that look better in profile, tilt your chin and look downwards to appear more flattering. Slight smiles are optional.
- Experiment, if you’re feeling bold
Only attempt this if you’re feeling confident. Hardly anyone takes photos with their face hovering over the camera because it doesn’t give your features much definition (see: double chin galore), but it does make for one interesting helfie.
