There is always someone who wants to be the next Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner, but despite what the movies tell us, becoming a model isn’t just about having really good looks. It’s about having the uniqueness, talent and drive to back up those assets. In this article, we will give you some tips that will hopefully teach you how to be a model.

The first step in becoming a model is knowing what type of modeling you want to specialize in. There are quite a few areas to choose from–print focuses on magazine editorials as well as advertising campaigns. While runway models walk the catwalk for labels. There are also more commercial options such as being a swimsuit or catalogue model. Plus size modeling has made an impact in the recent years too. No matter which area you choose, most female models start at the very minimum height of 5’7″ but closer to 6’0″ is preferred.

Finding the good agency

Now that you have figured out what type of modeling you want to do–look for an agency that specializes in your field of choice. You can search online for agencies easily. A simple “model agency” query on Google will garner a lot of results. Search for an agency that’s close to where you live.
