Additionally, hairstyle can affect how you feel about yourself during the photoshoot. If you feel comfortable and confident in your hairstyle, it will show in your photos. On the other hand, if you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable with your hairstyle, it can be reflected in your expression and body language.
