DO: Include accompanying text with your photo. We want to hear your story!
DON’T: Overlay text, hashtags, logos, or emojis on the photos you submit.
Filters Can Be Distracting
DO: Share a high-resolution, in-focus, photo of yourself on a clean background.
DON’T: Send images that have artificially altered the size, appearance, or proportions of your features. Have you ever tried listening to a story told by someone with salad in their teeth? It’s possible, but you’re probably distracted and unable to give that person and their words your full attention.
Is Your Photo Too Bright?
DO: Send a properly exposed photo that shows off your silver strands.
Don’t: Send photos that have been edited with automatic filters. Instagram has a lot of fun filters to play with, and while these filters might make one element of your photo look nice, they often alter the color or exposure so drastically that your silver might not even show up, or be true to color.
Make Sure Your Silver Looks True to Color
DO: Double-check that your hair in the photo you send looks like it does in real life.
DON’T: Use automatic filters that heavily alter the colors of your original photo. These filters can make your white strands appear yellow or blue, instead of their true color.
The Top of Your Head is Cute, But So is Your Face
DO: Include your face in the photo. We want a chance to get to know you!
DON’T: Send photos cropping out your face or that only show your scalp (yes, even if you do have a cute dot on your head.)
No Kids, Please
DO: Talk about your kids if they are a part of your story.
DON’T: Include young children or babies in your photos, these photos will not be posted. If they are too young to have and run their own instagram account, they are too young to be posted to our page.
Don't Combine Images into One Photo
DO: Include multiple separate images if you have them.
DON’T: Send one collaged image.
The Perfect Submission Photo
DO: Find a clean, neutral background (or, if that’s not possible, pick up the pile of dog bones in the background) and snap an in-focus photo that shows your face and your hair.
Funny how the image we edit the least usually ends up being the best option for showing off our hair. Bogey, you and your silver hair look stunning, and we can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
