Model's Hair

Hair plays quite a big role when it comes to model's image. It can hide or expose some facial features, it helps to bring the mood to the photoshoot, it completes the make up.

The model’s hair is just as important as your skin and body. Agencies and photographers are always looking for models with shiny hair. If your hair suffers from dryness, split ends, or bad colour, then you need to check out how you can get that healthy hair look.

Unfortunately for a model is extremely difficult to avoid styling products, the heat from the hair drier or hair straightener and the constant change of colour that might be necessary for your work. Reason why you have to have extra care with your hair.

Experts recommend that you use heat-activated shampoos, deep condition at least once a week, and avoid using too many hair care products, as they can dry out your hair, leaving it dull and lifeless.

As you are going to be working with experts it is always a good option to ask them for advice on how to make your hair look shiny and healthier. In the mean time we have some basic tips that will help you.

- Shampoo your hair gently instead of aggressive shampoos or scrubbing. Use very little shampoo but enough to cover your hair completely with lather. Use a conditioner to keep hair manageable

- Avoid wrapping your wet hair in a towel turban when you get out of the shower. The added friction can knot and damage vulnerable wet hair.

- Never wash your hair with very hot or very cold water.

- Do not brush your hair when wet. Use a wide-tooth comb, to work out tangles as you move from the ends toward the scalp.

- Get your hair trimmed or shaped every 5-6 weeks to remove the ends. It makes it easier to keep the scalp clean if the hair is kept reasonably short.

- Healthy hair depends on an adequate diet. Eat food that is rich in vitamin B, C and E. Also add iron and minerals in the natural form in your diet.

- Always go out in the sun with your head covered.

- Stimulate circulation by massaging your head with oil to which some vitamin E has been added to make it soft and silky.

Keep your hair long and healthy.

Avoid chemical processes (i.e., coloring, highlighting, straightening). Regular deep conditioning hair treatments are a good idea.

Long hair does tend to be preferred on hair models. Not always, but the majority of the time. Keep this in mind when you're deciding whether to allow a stylist to cut a lot of hair off. If you plan on doing more hair modeling in the future, make an effort to keep it long.

We don't reccommend that you have your hair cut at much of a varience before coming to your model portfolio session because most teens and women do not especially like the way their hair looks when they first leave the stylist.
It is best to leave your hair the way you normally wear it.
