Thank you to all the photographers that shared their creative photos showing different hair styles in this stylish photo contest. Hairstyles is an essential part of portrait photography, like lighting and make up, hairstyles can make or brake a photo shoot. Enjoy some great examples of good hairstyles for photography in the gallery within this contest.

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Laura Austin for her collaboration as a guest judge. Laura Austin stumbled into photography as a way to share her experiences with others, as is the case for most people who pick up a camera for the first time. But now instead of just bringing her camera places, Laura’s camera has brought around the world. With her insatiable appetite for travel, she spends a lot of time on the road, usually ending up in interesting locations with interesting people. Camera at her side at all times, Laura’s photos tend to be spontaneous documentation of travels when not shooting for clients. Laura’s goal is to inspire others to go out and experience the world for themselves.

"The hairstyle itself isn’t anything mind blowing, but I love the the hairstyle coupled with the rest of the elements in this photo tells a story. From the chicken, to the dress, to the expression on her face, this image feels timeless. I am a sucker for stories within photos." - Laura Austin
