Have you ever wanted to be a hair model. It's fun and you can even get a free hair style. It takes a lot of confidence because sometimes you may have to model in front of total strangers for a hair show or even a photographer.
1Build a portfolio. If you can't afford that, find a photographer who will photograph you at your natural state, namely, with your natural hair, no or minimal make up. Try to get a few different angles, i.e. front, sides, back.
2Once you get your photos back, select a nice looking portfolio book to show cast them in. All black is usually best. Print your photos at an 8X10 print size, as they just look better.
3Put your game-face on and make some visits. Contact you local beauty salons and show off your work. If you want, you can leave them with mini pictures or comp cards with your contact information on it, so that they can reach you whenever they have an event going on.
Don't pick a photographer just because he may do it for free; be careful. Pick a photographer that will benefit you.
Make sure your photographer signs a release for your photos. Protect yourself.
You might get rejections, but you have to keep pushing and hoping for the best.
Some photographers are predators. Be alert. Ask for references and examples of previous work.
