For Runway Models:

Girls- 5'9''-6'0'' slim figure, breath-taking facial features,and confidence

Boys- 5'10''-6'2'' slim, cut, defined jaw bones, full lush hair, confidence

(remember there is a HUGE difference between cockiness and confidence)

For Print/Editorial Models:

Girls: 5'4''- 6'0'' slim, beautiful, able to act/ express emotions, able to pose

Boys:5'8''-6'2'' slim, cut, handsome, able to act/express emotions. able to pose

WAKE UP CALL: Do not go in expecting to get your first job soon. Finding an agency is hard enough. You will hear many No's before a Yes. Keep a level-head and have fun!

Remember if somebody doesn't like your looks, don't take it personally. It's not that you're not good-looking, it's just that you're not what they're looking for!
