Do you have to be
"a perfect 10"
to be a model?
Just because you're not 5'9" or don't have a perfectly beautiful face, hair, skin, teeth or figure doesn't mean you can't enter the world of modeling.
Children, Teens, Adults and Seniors and even Pregnant women can enter the field of Commercial Print Modeling and acting in TV commercials, music and business videos, movies, etc.
Your "personality" and ability to convey your personality and "look" to and thru the camera is what generally sells a model for an assignment.
"Looks" for men and women can include: athletic, fit, fat, funny, smart, geeky, grungy, graceful, clumsy, tall, short, hip, vamp, collegiate, retro, housewife, executive, mom, dad, student, consumer, senior citizen, tired, vibrant, caring, indifferent, curious, etc.
Non-Fashion Modeling includes:
TV commercials, Glamour Modeling, Fitness/Sports Modeling, Teen Magazine Modeling, Senior Magazine Modeling, Business Magazine Modeling,
Trade Magazines, Plus Size Modeling, etc.
You don't have to have a perfect figure or face to be involved in modeling. There are "character" models with "unique" faces and looks, and models who specialize in using one of their unique attributes for modeling assignments.
These can include beautiful: hands, (dish soaps, jewelry, crafts, hand lotions, nail polish, etc), lips, eyes, nose, skin, profile (cosmetic or expressive close-ups), teeth, feet, legs, neck, chest (jewelry, necklaces, scarves) hair (shampoos, accessories, hairstyles, salons, hair coloring products, etc.)
In addition, even scars are used in modeling, so don't think that having a certain type of scar or other blemish removes you from the possibilities of modeling. Scars are used for creams, etc. Even supermodels have scars and certain blemishes. Sometimes they become their trademarks. Everyone has scars. They can be covered up or they can revealed as necessary. We can also retouch and remove scars from photos just like magazines do.
