Timeless Hairstyles for Your Engagement Photoshoot

Go for a classic hairstyle for photos that will be cherished forever.

When your significant other gets down on one knee and pops the question, the last thing on your mind is probably how your hair looks. We know that in the moment, love and excitement take the reigns. Once you’ve said “yes!” you may choose to have an engagement photoshoot to share the special announcement with loved ones. This photoshoot is great because it allows you to express your love and almost “reenact” the moment for everyone who wasn’t there for the actual proposal. With all of this in mind, now you have complete control over how you look in these photos. Take this engagement photoshoot opportunity to look and feel your greatest with your soon-to-be partner in life. We recommend going with one of these engagement photoshoot hairstyles that are timeless and elegant!

Classic Hairstyles for Your Engagement Photoshoot

1. Longer Locks

Keep your style simple yet stunning with longer locks that are blown out and silky smooth. If you don’t have long hair but want to wear this look for your engagement photoshoot, then we highly recommend purchasing some clip-in extensions. When you create this look with a blow dryer, don’t forget to use a serum prior to styling. A serum will give you healthy and silky smooth strands. One of our faves is Nexxus Humectress Encapsulate Serum. This serum will give you extra healthy and soft locks as it has innovative concentrated conditioning oil encapsulated into pearls in the product.

2. Donut Bun

If you’re an updo girl at heart then don’t hold back, go for a donut bun for your photos. This style is perfect for keeping your hair out of your face so the camera can truly capture your smile and emotions! It’s also a great style if you know you’ll be taking photos on a hot day and want to avoid getting overheated and sweaty.

3. Half-Up with a Touch of Floral

A half-up hairstyle is incredibly elegant and a great compromise for keeping your hair down and flowing and pulling it back to frame your face. When it comes to any kind of engagement photoshoot or wedding look, you can’t go wrong with a floral accessory.

4. Classic Waves

The classic wavy hairstyle is classic for a reason: it’s simple to create and looks flattering on everyone! This is a foolproof engagement photoshoot hairstyle and we love that you can create any size curl you desire. It’s crucial to remember a heat protectant before you curl your hair; you do not want any flyaways or frizz showing up in your photos. Spritz some TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray before you start curling.
