The tip about using your hand to direct your client where to look is genius. I used to do it for makeup applications but never thought to use it in photography!

When I do hair up at my mums I use her wall paper and a ring light the quality of light at my mums house is terrible and this is the best solution. I used to put a white bed sheet on my door in my flat to create a plain background.
I take a mini ring light and put on my phone so to take that out with me and that works great. I did have a Samsung s9+ but had so many issues with it I ended swapping it with the apple XR it’s a great phone takes good photos it’s just it can’t do portrait on hair I’m hoping they will do it on a update soon. I agree invest in the best camera that’s what I did. your tips for a ring light I do that. Great tips

Thank you for all your tips! I do need to invest in a ring light. The salon I work in has good natural light towards the front, but it would be better to have one.
