DON’T: Overlay text, hashtags, logos, or emojis on the photos you submit.
DO: Include accompanying text with your photo. We want to hear your story!
Filters Can Be Distracting
DON’T: Send images that have artificially altered the size, appearance, or proportions of your features.
DO: Share a high-resolution, in-focus, photo of yourself on a clean background.
Is Your Photo Too Bright?
DON’T: Send photos that have been edited with automatic filters. While 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.
DO: Send a properly exposed photo that shows off your silver strands.
Make Sure Your Silver Looks True to Color
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.
DO: Double-check that your hair in the photo you send looks like it does in real life.
The Top of Your Head is Cute, But So is Your Face
DON’T: Send photos cropping out your face or that only show your scalp (even if you do have a cute dot on your head.)
DO: Include your face in the photo. We want a chance to get to know you!
No Kids, Please
DON’T: Include young children or babies in your photos, these photos will not be posted. Our rule of thumb: If they are too young to have and run their own instagram account, they are too young to be posted to our page.
DO: Talk about your kids if they are a part of your story.
Don't Combine Images into One Photo
DON’T: Send a collaged image.
DO: Include multiple, separate, images if you want to include more than one shot.
Send High Resolution Photos
DON’T: Send low-resolution photos.
DO: Make sure your photo is high quality so that we can see you clearly.
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.
Bogey, you look radiant, and we can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
