Most universities require their student ID cards to be made to the same standards and specifications as other official government documents (such as passports and driver’s licenses): with a white or off-white background, proper lighting, a full-face view, and so on. Instead of wasting time checking to see if your photo matches all the requirements, simply have your photo prepared on Passport Photo Online without registration!
The photo you get will be of the same quality as a student ID photo taken at a professional photographer’s, except at a pocket-friendly price!

Yes, of course. No one is asking you to change your hairstyle for a student ID photo. Just make sure that the bangs do not obscure your eyes. Ideally, they shouldn’t hang lower than your eyebrow line. Long “emo” bangs should be combed back.
Headgear should not be worn in student IDs, even if you usually wear a baseball cap, headband, or ribbons and bows in your hair. But a head covering worn every day for religious and cultural reasons (such as turbans, yarmulkes, and hijabs) can be left on for your ID photo.
