How to Become a Successful Runway Model
Being a successful high fashion runway model requires much
more than just drop-dead gorgeous looks. Lets see, how to
make it big...
The modeling world is one of the most competitive, hardest and possibly dangerous
industries to enter into as a career if you don’t know the right steps to take.
Many people are willing to take advantage of young females looking to make it famous
with their looks. On the other hand, there are quality agencies out there that can be
hard to get into or accepted to if girls aren’t aware of what steps to becoming a model
Start with promoting yourself for free, find agencies willing to use your photos or
businesses willing to have you promote their products. This is the best way to get
noticed with not much hard work involved and fast exposure.
Check out these essential steps so you can know up front what you need to do if you’re
interested in modeling.
One of the most important steps to becoming a model is knowing your market.
What does this mean? Well, for starters, depending on the area you live in, certain
trends and looks are more popular than others.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to find a good agency to work with. A good
agency should understand your personal needs as a model, lift you up. Perhaps as
mentioned above, start with free work to get yourself noticed.
One of my top tips for becoming a model is to be aware of what you’ll face.
Know that girls can be cut-throat, the wrong agencies may ask you to sacrifice your
morals, integrity or beliefs just to obtain certain photos, and know that it can be a very
Also be aware that the idea of modeling is not to give you fame, but instead to create a
certain wanted look by photographers and companies.
You may be asked to cut or color your hair, wear an outfit you don’t like, or spend
endless hours travelling to the right photo shoot location just for one shot. You may
also be on set for anywhere from 8-12 hours or even more.
Know ahead of time that the point of using a model is to create the right photo.
Many photographers, agencies and product campaigns put the photo goal ahead of the
Many girls who don’t intend on compromising their values end up doing so if they don’t
know ahead of time just what their values are. Don't ever sacrifice yourself to be a
Don’t expect to walk into a modeling agency, do a few twirls and expect them to sign
If you do get called in for a meet and greet, you need to keep your look casual, yet also
have a confident walk and not look fake.
When it comes to the modeling industry, you won’t get anywhere without a good
headshot to get you started. Have someone you know or a photographer take a natural
headshot of you. No photo-touching, hardly any makeup, and simple hair should be the
top three key points of your photo.
The modeling industry is one of the hardest careers to achieve and maintain.
You don’t need to be a certain size to model, nor do you need to look a certain way. You
just need to know what the odds are in the market you’re in.
If you don’t look like a runway model, that’s fine! The most important thing you can do
to become a model is to be yourself!
Never change who you are on the inside or outside to make someone else happy.
Never sacrifice yourself, your values or your self-esteem to do so!
These steps will lead you to being a successful and happy model.
Be sure about the requirements. For high fashion these days you need to be 5'9' to
6'tall. If you are 14 to 15 years old, 5'7" above would do. Just being good-looking is not
enough; you must look good in a two-dimensional photograph.
Perseverance is your goal. Supermodels get rejected for 70% of the castings they
applied for in the beginning. Learn to face criticism. Even if you've been winning
beauty competitions all your life, the industry folks may say you're too fat, short,
unstructured, ugly or not photogenic even if you're the prettiest thing in earth. Maybe
that assignment required different type of skin, hair and structure. Don't mind because
everyone has different opinions and are looking for different types of people.
For instance, if you go to an audition, you're a blonde and they're looking for brunettes,
you're not going to get picked.
Have a good attitude and be prepared to work hard. Just dream how wonderful It'll be
afterwards. There will be times when you won't be able to sleep for even 5 hours at
night. Always try to fight the feeling of defeat.
Impress people, be very sociable, contacts get you work in this brutal industry. Do not
try to use unfair means or don't let any one make you do something you are not
comfortable to do. If in case anything like this happens, politely refuse.
Stay alcohol and drug free. Keep your skin clear. Eat healthy and please don't starve
yourself. For being a runway model you can be any size, you just have to find the right
runway. If you are short, you can model petit. If you are a little bit chubbier than you
can model plus size.
Be confident. Have an outrageous personality.
