Why We Recommend It

This branch is the headquarters of Woori Dongnae Photo Studio, which has about 20 stores nationwide.

The makeup services are provided by 'Makeup Dala', a professional makeup agency, so you can receive high-quality makeup and hair-styling.

The photographers all have a certificate in personal color counseling, so you will get to participate in the retouching process while receiving suggestions from a professional! You will definitely be able to get satisfying results.

If you select the 'Hair, Makeup, & Personal Color Photo' option, you will receive files of the photos with a total of 37 different background colors ranging from cool-tone and warm-tone shades (spring, summer, fall, winter).


Things To Keep In Mind

You must make a reservation at least 3 days in advance.

A refund is available if you cancel at least 3 days before the scheduled reservation. 

The sizes and specifications of the photo vary depending on the type of photo (ID Photo, Passport Photo, Business Card Photo, etc.), so please inform the shop of which type of photo you'd like after considering all the options.

In terms of visa photos, the regulations are different for each country, so please check the sizing in advance and let the shop know what size you need on the day of your reservation.

The makeup service is a full makeup look, starting from base makeup, so it is recommended that you show up with only skin care completed.

For a natural-looking photo, it is best to keep a neat, clean hairstyle because it is much easier to remove/change the background of the image.

Photo files sent by email can only be downloaded for a limited period of time. Please note that after a certain period of time has passed, you cannot download the photos.

If you have any inquiries or would like to make changes to your reservation, please contact support@creatrip.com.

Our Visit

Woori Dongnae Photo Studio has about 20 stores nationwide. This branch in Gangnam is the main branch; you can get your hair and makeup done before getting your picture taken! You'll be able to get great photos here because the photographers are very experienced and have a certificate in personal color counseling. You'll even get to participate in the photo retouching process, so you can get results that you like!

There's a separate space where you can change your clothes and fix your makeup to get ready for your photoshoot. They also provide suit jackets and white blouses at no extra cost, so if you don't have proper clothes to wear for your ID photo, you can borrow the clothes available at the studio! Once you're ready, they'll provide you with a gown in preparation to get your hair and makeup done.

The makeup room at the studio has enough space for 2 people to get their makeup done. The makeup service is provided by a professional hair and makeup artist and takes about an hour.

When I visited, I chose the 'Hair + Makeup + Personal Color + ID Photo' option. Getting a personal color diagnosis became very popular in recent years. It is a personal diagnosis of one's skin-tone in which a personal color specialist will find which colors match and complement your skin tone best so that you can style yourself better! The Personal Color option at Woori Dongnae Photo Studio allows you to see which background color best matches your skin tone, resulting in the perfect photo. 

Let's check out the hair and makeup process!

The makeup service starts from the very basics, so you can come to the photo studio without any makeup on. First, the makeup artist cleaned up my eyebrows and applied toner, lotion, and sunscreen.

The foundation was applied very carefully and cleanly. The artist picked a foundation shade that matched my skin tone well. To make my facial features more defined, the makeup artist applied a brighter tone (#17) on the center of my face, then blended it with a darker shade (#23) on the outer edges of my face to make my face look slimmer. I really like that they put in a lot of care into the makeup so that the photos would come out great!

After finishing the face and eye makeup, the makeup artist applied fake eyelashes. The fake eyelashes made my eyes look even more defined in the photo. It didn't look or feel unnatural at all, and had the proper length to make my eyes look naturally defined.

Then, the makeup artist filled in my eyebrows and fixed my skin makeup one more time, completing the makeup process! It took about 35-40 minutes to finish the full makeup look.

Next is the hair-styling process. First, the makeup artist will ask what kind of hairstyle you want. I like the look of thick curls, so I asked for a hairstyle with thick curls. I was really satisfied with the curls and the volume it added to my hair!

After finishing off the hairstyle with some hairspray, your hair and makeup is complete. Now, it's time for the photoshoot!

The photo studio is right in front of the makeup room. 

If the store is not busy, the makeup artist will come to help check your posture and fix your hair for better results! They took a few test shots at the beginning to see if it would look better to have my hair forward on both sides or with one side back.

Whenever a photo is taken, the picture shows up on the monitor right in front of you, so you can check the photos as they're being taken. It was nice to be able to see the photos right away, so I could try out different expressions and postures. After taking about 10-20 photos, the photoshoot was over. It's now time to choose a photo and do some retouching!

The photographer will proceed in a detailed 1:1 retouching process, where you will be able to participate and monitor the retouching so that you can retouch the photo in the way that you want! After the retouching is finished, you can choose a color palette of spring, summer, winter, or fall after testing all the colors out for your Personal Color Photo. You'll get 9 photos with the seasonal color palette of your choice, 1 large photo with your favorite color out of the 9, and 1 ID photo. 

It takes about 10 minutes to print the photos once the retouching process is done. It was convenient because it didn't take very long to print the photos at all! I was really satisfied with the photo results!

If you opt for the ID Photo option instead of the Personal Color Photo option, you will get 6 ID photos as pictured above. The medium-sized picture in the middle was provided free-of-charge!

The photo studio will also send you the photo files of the seasonal color palettes that you don't choose. It was nice to receive the photos digitally so that I could print them personally if I want to! I was able to get the perfect ID photo at Woori Dongnae Photo Studio. I highly recommend it to those that want to experience a Korean makeup style and Korean-style photo retouching. You'll definitely leave with satisfying results!
