Halo Hair Care Studio | California, Maryland Salon Brand Session

Halo Hair Care Studio is a salon located in California, Maryland right in the heart of Southern Maryland. Halo was established in 2014 by hairstylist, Diana Diggins, who has worked in the cosmetology industry for 30+ years as a stylist, educator, platform artist and now, salon owner. She has worked locally in Southern Maryland since 2004. 

Diana’s goals for her salon brand session

The goal of the Halo team is to create a modern and fun environment with a focus on guest service that inspires talented stylists, as well as providing guests with a fun, relaxing and professional experience. Diana wanted to make sure that we highlight in images the ways her team brings their experience to life through the services they provide. 

Photography Shot list for hair stylists

At her planning session, I had Diana describe for me the entire experience her team takes her clients through. From there I created them a shot list that looked like this:

  • Static images of the interior of the salon
  • Welcoming a client into the salon
  • Client consultation
  • Washing hair
  • Mixing color
  • Applying color
  • Team collaboration
  • Styling hair
  • Cutting hair
  • Recommending products
  • Team Group shots
  • Individual Headshots
