Answering a Reader Question #211
hi i am 12 and i want to start a small modeling career but i have braces and my teeth agent as bad as they could be but i do have a gap between my front teeth. so what are my chances and are there any modeling agencies that specialize in children/teenagers?
Hi, Georgia! At your age, having braces actually wouldn't count against you too much since there are clients that need girls your age with that type of look. If you do child/teen modeling, they'll be more welcoming to you having braces, compared to if you were trying to get into fashion modeling (which you're still too young for right now anyway). So to answer your question, I think you would still have a fair shot at modeling while you have your braces...the decision ultimately is up to the agencies you submit yourself to, as well as how long you have until your braces will be removed.
That being said, there are modeling agencies that have child/teen divisions. It is best to look for agencies online in your city/state and check out their official websites, which will say exactly what kind of models they represent and what age groups. Hope that helps and good luck!
