5 steps on how to become a model
📷Be healthy inside. Eat and drink healthy foods and get plenty of exercise. Having a healthy body will help you look your best.
Fitness is important. Consider working with a trainer who works specifically with models.
Eat right. Contrary to what some people tell you, you should eat healthy foods, as well as healthy amounts of food. Veggies, fruits, whole grains, healthy fats, and proteins should make up the basics of your diet. Sugars, starches, empty carbohydrates, and unhealthy fats should be avoided as much as possible.
Be sure to drink a lot of water too because that can clear up acne too!
📷 Maintain your appearance. Take care to make yourself look healthy and well-groomed. What you wear and how you carry yourself are important as well, but you should have a routine that supports the health of your skin and hair.
Focus on keeping your skin clear and glowing and your hair shiny and healthy.
📷 Consider situational modelling. If you do not think the runway or magazines are the place for you, look into other types of modelling. Companies use models for special events or to promote specific products. There are fewer restrictions on body type and more emphasis on personality for these modelling jobs.
📷Consider your "look." The look that you communicate can be made up of both your body type and your style. There is more of a curvy California look, a svelte and sophisticated New York look, a waif-like European look, and a boy- or girl-next-door look. Know what you're equipped with, but also try to pull off other looks.
Extra!!!! - Do not be shy. You will have to promote yourself and look for opportunities to step up and prove your abilities.
Standing back to seem “polite” will not get you where you are going. Be yourself, let your personality shine, and have a confident attitude. If you don't feel confident, fake it; modelling often requires acting skill as well!
