Top 10 Mrs. Headshots of 2016
10. Mrs. RedRock America 2016, Natalie Manning
Natalie is all glam and gorgeous in this shot! The pink accents in the shot are beautiful with the pink shirt, earrings and lipstick. It’s great to have a theme color in headshots if you are looking for consistency. The dark hair and dark makeup along with the light background and bright pink accents is a great combination for a beautiful headshot.
9. Mrs. Royalty International 2016, Stephanie Piller
Stephanie is glowing in this headshot! It is usually risky to stick with one color through the whole headshot, such as the white shirt, background and earrings, but it brought all of the attention to her beauty and didn’t wash her out! The floral designs of the shirt and the gold in the earrings give the white theme some pop. This all helps to bring the focus to her bright smile and gorgeous blue eyes. This is a beautiful headshot.

8. Mrs. South Carolina United States 2016, Quiana Anderson Reed
Yellow clothing and accessories look beautiful on women with darker and deeper skin tones and/or hair colors. There is something about yellow that brightens up every photo, and it really goes great with so many other colors! The blue accent earrings bring a lot of personality to this photo but really brings attention to her overall look and glowing smile.
7. Mrs. North America World 2016, Emerald Stanley
White and gold go gorgeous together, and Emerald is rocking that style. She looks so gorgeous with this up-close headshot. The hair being blown away from her face is beautiful, especially because it brings attention to her stunning makeup and gorgeous eyes and smile. The makeup is simple and done perfectly to accent her features. This is gorgeous!
6. Mrs. United Nations 2016, Wendi Russo
This blushing pink headshot is unique, elegant and beautiful. With all of the pink surrounding Wendi, it really is a different headshot, but it is eye-catching. The flowers add a beautiful touch. Her bright blue eyes really stand out behind all of the pink in this headshot. It is a great style and accent choice!
5. Mrs. Canada World 2016, Jane Gagne
You typically don’t see an over-the-shoulder type poses for a headshot, or any pose from the back instead of the front for that matter, but Jane really brought her A-game with her posing and the photographer’s skills. This headshot is seriously gorgeous! The green color for the top is beautiful, especially with her brunette hair and chocolate eyes. The earrings add a gorgeous accent to the overall look. The natural makeup and hair are stunning and the perfect touches. This headshot of Jane really set the bar for beauty and new poses!
4. Mrs. Galaxy 2016, Sarah Pritchard
This headshot truly stands out among the rest, especially with any headshot I personally have ever seen. Usually, you do not see headshots with this type of lighting. It is dramatic and mysterious… and it really works! This headshot makes me want to know more about Sarah, which is the goal when judges see headshots, right? Sarah is stunning, and everything about this headshot is beautiful. The makeup and hair styles go perfectly with the theme of this headshot. It is all so gorgeous.
3. Mrs. Florida International 2016, Amy Santiago
This headshot is full of glitz, glam and beauty! Amy is beautiful and everything about this headshot brings out her beauty and personality. When I see this headshot, the first word I think of is fun! The champagne gold accents in the outfit and earrings are beautiful and really go beautifully with the hair, makeup, and background choice. Amy is glowing here and I love it.
