Getting ready for a senior school photo doesn't happen the night before. If you really want yours to look great for the ages, then you need to have done preparations that are paying off by that night, not getting things together at the last minute.
You should decide far in advance what you are going to wear for your senior school photo, and make sure the whole ensemble fits well and is clean. Take it to the dry cleaners a week in advance to be sure it's pristine and looking great.
Getting a haircut shortly before the photo is a good idea, but it also makes sense to do it three or four days in advance. That way, you have time to get comfortable with your fresh look and for your hair to possibly calm back down.
Make sure that you get nine hours of sleep the previous night so that you can have fresh energy and 'shine' in front of the camera. Another similar great idea is to eat very clean in the two weeks prior, drinking mostly water for beverages. This does wonders for your skin and appearance.
