Wanna Be a Justice Model?

When it comes to teen (or is it tween?) clothing, Justice is one of the most popular brands out there today. I often see questions online from young girls, asking how they can become a model for this company. So I decided to do some quick research and here is what I was able to find:

On the Justice website, under the FAQ section, this is exactly what they say:

 

How can I become a Justice or Brothers model?


Justice and Brothers do not currently have their own models. Depending on the photography requirements, we usually use modeling and talent agencies that represent young people. Justice and Brothers do not offer agency referrals. You may want to contact such an agency in your local area to see what is involved in becoming a model.

In other words, any teen girl's best chances of becoming an actual Justice model is to get signed to a modeling agency that currently has Justice as one of its clients. Why? Because it shows that the agency has already provided Justice with models in the past, which increases the odds that the company will turn to them again for future model castings. Additionally, it also shows that the agency works with quality, high end companies and brands.

They don't state the names of the agencies they use, nor do they refer aspiring models to them. Remember, folks, Justice is a company and is all about putting out their products and making a profit. They don't have the knowledge, resources, time or interest in helping people start their modeling careers--it's simply not their job.

However, through their website I did see that Justice's locations (their website headquarters and customer relations department) is based out of Ohio. So there could be a chance that modeling agencies in the Ohio area are the first ones that Justice turns to. I don't know that for sure but it's just a hunch, since most retailers will use local agencies/models since it's convenient.

If you happen to live in Ohio, it's worth checking out the agencies locally to see if any of them have worked with Justice before.

I have had many people tell me that I have a great smile and that I am extremely photogenic. I think it would be a great opportunity to have fun. Is there a more simple way to become a model for any other company?

Dania Denise said...

Hi, Anonymous! I believe the models used for Justice are from ages 10-14, which means you would be the ideal age. So definitely look into getting signed to a local agency that represents kid models and see what happens from there.

I'm Hispanic but I don't really see any Hispanic models for justice. Also I'm short for my age so I look about a year younger than I really am which is 11. Would I still be good for this?

Alrighty. So, I really don't think you need an agency type thingy to be a model. I went to the mall the other day and they were having people sign up. They asked me, but I said no. So, anyway, a girl at my sisters school is a Justice model and I'm 40% sure she dosen't have any type of agency. Again, I have no relationship with this person, I barely know her. But I don't think she has one

Dania Denise said...

The "modeling searches/contests" that are held at the mall are known for being the biggest rip offs in the industry so it's good that you said no to them.

On the Justice Site it says directly:

"Depending on the photography requirements, we usually use modeling and talent agencies that represent young people."

So having an agent actually does improve your chances of getting hired for Justice. It pretty much says so right on their website.

You should find out if the girl at your sister's school has an agent. It would be great if you knew the name of the agency that way my readers would know at least one agency that has worked with Justice before and I'm sure it would help them out in trying to reach that goal.

Hi Miss Denise! I'm a huge fan! You're a big inspiration to me and I really wanna thank you for that! Now that I'm done fangirling, onto my question:
A little about me:
I'm a 12 year old girl living in the Bay Area, California. I live about 30 mins away from San Francisco on a good day (you know how Bay Area traffic can be). After reading many of your posts, I'm certain modeling is something I want to do. My parents are supportive, which is a good thing. I'm gonna start taking acting lessons in the fall, I can play piano, guitar, violin, and I'm working on vocal. I've never really taken any dance lessons, but I used to figure skate so I'm flexible and in good shape.
My question:
Do you have any recommendations for local agencies that are good for total newbies like me? Also, I heard minors need some thingy from the state in order to work and get paid. Can I get a little more info about that? Thanks so much for everything in advance!

Ashanti Rockmore said...

hi my name id Ashanti i always wanted to be a justice model. im not that skinny, and i live in Gwinnett County Georgia

Dania Denise said...

Hi, Ashanti,

Because you don't live near the Justice headquarters/main office, your odds of modeling for them may not be very high but that doesn't mean you can't look at local agencies in GA to get your foot in the door as a model that way. If you get signed to an agency in Georgia, you could end up modeling for other clothing brands similar to Justice.

Just jump online and Google keywords like "modeling agencies in Georgia" and you'll come across the websites of agencies that you can submit yourself to.

Best of luck!
