I stand with my back to the mirror and pose, or I lift my arms over my head. Sometimes I get a lucky shot, like my signature :)

And how do you get it into your post? i may not be allowed to yet...?

I do my own too no one in my family believes women should take pics of there hair:lol:

To put them in posts you have to make a album here or go to photobucket,or imagshak and then copy the IMG code and paste here:)

I use self timer of the camera.

When dh is away I use my self timer too. But it takes me many shots to get the right one. Usually though dh takes me pics for me.

The better pictures come from other people, but I have a self-timer too. You can add a picture to your signature, but I think it requires 25 posts to have access to your own account. Then you can click the User CP button right next to Home and edit all your stuff.

I have my husband or MIL take any pictures with my hair down, and for buns I stretch my arm behind my head and take them myself.

I can take close ups, and my dh takes the full shots of the back of my hair...........
But I think I'm going to start taking them in a mirror because he is SO over my hair obsession. He takes pretty crappy pictures anyways. Lol His lighting is bad. :p

I'm new at taking pictures of my own hair, too. (that's why I do the close ups)

Sorry I posted twice my thing froze on my first one so I didn't think it went through.

Self timer or if I want a really good picture, I ask mum's help.

I do trial and error in the bathroom. My siggie pic was trial and error too but I stretched out my arm as far as I could and then took multiple pictures. I had my mother take a picture once and it was a failure. I'd ask my dad but he'd think I'm more insane than he thinks I already am.

It's easier to get a decent picture in the bathroom mirror if you use a hand mirror to see the display on the digital camera. And I think it's preferable to clean the mirror first than to apologize for the blotches on the glass.
