Men’s Styling Tips for Your Dating Profile Pictures

Men’s Styling Tips for Your Dating Profile Pictures

Men’s Styling Tips From a Top Stylist

Are you following us on Instagram?

I’ve started doing Instagram Lives at 1pm GMT on Tuesdays and I will aim to continue doing them as we go into 2021 as long as they prove useful and fun.

First up, I chatted with a great friend of mine, Sarah Gilfillan. She is the founder of Men’s Styling, Shopping and Wardrobe Consultancy, Sartoria Lab.

Some of my followers on Instagram messaged me with questions for her. And her answers were so, so good. If you’re a guy and you’re struggling with what to wear and how to look good in your dating profile pictures, this is the video for you. She shares so many good tips.

Here are the client questions that she answered:

1. I have a bit of a gut. What can I wear to minimise how it looks on camera? I’ve actually started working out with a Personal Trainer. My plan it to have a 6-pack by the time the dates start rolling in. Or a 4-pack at least!

2. I know Hey  Saturday recommends wearing bold colours, if possible. I want to start introducing more colour into my outfits. I wear mainly neutrals and I’m so ready for a change… but I don’t know what suits me or where to start. Please help.

3. My wardrobe is embarrassing. I’m planning to start dating so I badly need to update it. I haven’t actually bought anything new this year really. I blame lockdown! So, I’m up for buying a couple of new things for my photoshoot. Any tips?

Plus she answered more questions from me too. Tune in for a Live packed with men’s styling gems.

If you’re a woman reading this and thinking, wait what? What about me? It’s all good. Next time I’m talking to Sunna Yates of London Fashion Insider. She will answer questions from our female clients over what to wear in their dating profile pictures. And also on dates.

I’m pretty excited to be part of @clementineappuk’s online wellness festival, Reboot.

I’ll be sharing some tips on how to create some good quality headshots for LinkedIn at home with just a smart phone and a friend. I’ll also cover the steps you need to follow to show up authentically in front of the camera. All my tips will be helpful for those of you who want to create dating profile photos at home too.

Head to Clementine’s feed to find out more. I’m in fantastic company as they have so many amazing speakers every week night, starting tonight.

🔥Looking good starts with feeling good 🔥

I shared my top dating photoshoot tips with Bustle recently.

Next week I’m going Live with a very special guest (more on Monday) to chat small, simple things you can do every week to feel better about yourself. I can’t think of anything more important to focus on right now.

This weekend, I’m going to put on a couple of my favourite deep house tunes (you know, the ones I used to go clubbing to) and dance my heart out. (Movement, check. Happiness, Check. Laughter, check). What small thing are you going to do that will make you feel better about yourself?

Searching for ‘dating app photos’... never silly and always cool as long as Hey Saturday is alive & kicking 🙌🏽

What’s your secret sauce? What’s different about you? We really want to know.

But why tho’?
To us, your dating photoshoot is more than just a photoshoot. It’s your opportunity to tell people who you are and what you’re made of.

It’s your chance to show people why they should date you over others.

And.... when done well, with intention...helps you to attract your ideal ‘audience’ more easily.

And that’s something we can totally get on board with🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

••• Why do you need to express your personal brand in your dating profile pictures? ••••

Hmm good question, Sask 🤔

Still reading? Yay. So yes expressing your personal brand in your photos is a way of shaping what people think about you when they see your profile online.

It’s a way of showing people why they should choose to connect with you over others.

A bit of thought and intention up front when creating your photos can lead to more ... and better ... connections with people who share your vibe. Sounds good, right.

In 2021, we’re shifting our focus to help our clients bring more focus to figuring out & sharing their personal brand in their pictures.

Coming for ya 2021 💪🏽

How you present yourself to the world matters. How you present yourself on your dating profile matters even more.

I’ve just written this article for Thrive Global because, you know what? In 2021 we’re on a mission to support our clients to create visually compelling profile pictures with built-in personality and intrigue.

We are going all out to help them to pique people’s interest & increase engagement with their dating app profile. More importantly, it’s going to be fun. Our photoshoots are an adventure not a chore 🔥🔥

Our photoshoots are more than just a photoshoot. They’re more than just a massive confidence boost. They’re a way to help you connect more easily with people you resonate with online. And that’s a pretty cool thing. This client was so happy with his Hey Saturday experience that I was properly moved by the emails he sent me afterwards. This is the end of the last one he sent 💛

Huge shout out to Rachel - Rachel, this client is one of yours 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 thank youuuu for creating another happy person in my life.

Today’s love letter was written to Lauren who massively boosted this client’s confidence in her 60th year 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Brava Lauren, this is such a fantastic feedback note.

We love working with our older clients & one of our oldest clients at age 76 is featured on our homepage. You should check it out, it’s one of my favourite Hey Saturday pics (& it was shot by the awesome Polly).

Whatever age you are, we’ll go out of our way to welcome you and help you relax into your shoot. A fun, confidence-boosting experience awaits.

+++ Looking good starts with feeling good +++

I shared this tip with Bustle. I’m getting into radical kindness now actually, which says before you can show up with kindness for anyone else, you need to show up - big time - for yourself. Then you show up for others and then you show up for the wider world.

But it’s easy to forget that first step - showing up for yourself.

“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” ~ Jack Kornfield

Look after yourself, feel good, look good.

And also be kind to others 💚

I’ve received a lot of client ‘love letters’ this year but this particular client has written to me personally a few times now to tell me what his Hey Saturday photoshoot meant to him. I am always so touched to get good feedback but I think this client has given me the most feels ever. A huge shout out to Rachel for creating such an amazing experience for him. Our photographers are seriously the coolest. This is a snippet of what he sent to Rachel after his shoot. My heart ❤️❤️ Thank you Rachel ❤️❤️

There’s still time to DM me your questions for Sarah Gilfillan of @sartorialab for today’s live. Sarah is one of my favourite people I’ve met through Hey Saturday so I’m looking forward to this. See you there? I’ll post it later for anyone who’s into it, as I know it’s hard to catch stuff live.
