Answering a Reader Question #260

Abigail Wrote:


Hi Dania!

I've been considering pursuing a career in modeling for sometime but I'm 18 years old and I'm only 5'6 and I also have sisterlocks, which (if you don't already know) are like a smaller, neater version of dreadlocks. So my question is should I pursue a career in modeling with my height disadvantage and my very distinct hair?

Thanks!

Hey, Abigail! You certainly don't have a height disadvantage if you pursue commercial/print modeling instead of runway/fashion (the height range for commercial/print is 5'5"-5'7", so you're right in there). Not only is this category of modeling much more open in terms of height, there are no crazy size or weight requirements to worry about. Clients that hire print models are always looking for unique and distinct people. With your height, age and sisterlocks, I would highly recommend submitting yourself to agencies with commercial/print divisions. :-)

Dania,

Thanks so much! I've already started researching agencies in my area so I'll do some more research and start sumbitting myself to agencies soon!

Thanks again!,

Abigail
