When the word modeling flashes in the minds of people, many will instantly think about the catwalk and fashion runways. These types of modeling jobs are just one of the many types of work available to people ready to make it big in the fashion industry. In as much as the industry is dynamic, there are some types of modeling that has been year in year out. These are hair modeling, range modeling, body parts modeling, photographic modeling, child modeling, lingerie and swimsuit modeling, and plus size modeling. If you want to compete as a hair model you must really have a natural, genetic lucky edge over the competition. This type of modeling job is very rare and you need to be experienced in other areas to have a chance of getting in. Another type of modeling job is child modelling. This is one of the most popular fields now with young mothers who want their child to become a star. Also, many companies use babies and children to represent innocence and honesty to the consumer. These values have gone a long way towards boosting the child modelling industry, and it is now of comparable value to glamour modelling. The main difference here is that child models will inevitably get paid less than their adult counterparts. Body parts modeling is a great way in for most people who don’t have the full package as such but have some stunning features. Popular types of body parts modeling jobs include hands, lips and legs. Modeling jobs for body parts models generally pay £100+ per day, but with great representation and a lot of experience, some people can ask for a lot more than that.
If you are not actually a model, but perhaps a make up artist or a hair stylist, working freelance in the industry, you really depend on your marketing and networking skills. A lot of young men and women leaving college underestimate the importance of having a network, and experience, despite perhaps being a very skilled make up artist. Build a client portfolio, take care of your clients and bend over backwards to their needs. If you do this, and still fail down the line, you can say definitively that it was not your fault. Many businesses have ups and downs, but the downs when you are freelance can be catastrophic to your family and lifestyle. If you have well paying modeling jobs for a week, keep some money aside in case you don’t have another one soon enough.
