three different headshots of man, man, and women

MEN

Clothing

  • Bring several outfits that you feel great wearing and more than you think you need, to provide a variety of options to find the best look.
  • Clothes with solid colours and limited patterns are preferred
  • Perhaps a suit or sports jacket
  • Shirts that fit you well and have crisp collars
  • If you don't have a jacket, long sleeves are better, to avoid the distraction of your skin below the elbow showing.
  • Ties, with simple patterns
  • Iron your clothes, please, to help reduce wrinkles

Face

  • Freshly shaven, if possible
  • Trim any "extra" eyebrow or nose hairs

Hair

  • As you normally style/wear it

Jewelry

  • Less is better, as jewelry can be distracting

Glasses

  • Bring them, if you have different styles, bring those as well

 

WOMEN

Clothing
