The hair light; the forgotten headshot illumination

The hair light is a flattering but often omitted aspect of a good head shot. A hair light separates hair and blacks from the background, gives it dimension and adds a beautiful highlight.

Photographers often overlook the hair light as they don’t know how to do it or they exclusively focus on front illumination.

Overdoing the hair light may cause the hair to illuminate and get blown out; this may be an undesirable look.
