Male headshot. Beards, what works and what doesn’t. A trip to a professional barber is one of the things to consider before having a new headshot. I have a whole blog post on beards and considerations for professional headshots. Consider splashing out on a professional barber visit. It can take years off you and makes you feel great. It will give you a crisp well manicured look. I also like the choice of a dark brown jacket as an alternative to black. In this case the no tie headshot really works well.
