Quick Tip #5

Category: Heels
For female models

I hope I'm able to explain this in a way that you'll understand. Okay, ladies, when you're in really high heels and are required to walk down a flight of stairs, the chances of a mishap occurring are very high. To reduce your odds of falling, walk with your feet parallel to the stairs instead of stepping with your foot pointed out towards the ground. Not making sense? Check out the following examples:



While walking down the stairs in your heels like in the second picture may look weird, it's nowhere near as bad as eating the pavement, should you take a tumble. So play it safe when it comes to those stairs!

Hi Dania,
I have recently decided to get into modeling, and was planning on doing some freelance first to build my portfolio. (I'm 18) I like the idea of representing myself (business minded I guess)but Im wondering if I do happen to sign with an agency can/how much freelance can I still do on the side? Like do agencies have issues with their signed models doing freelance work? I guess I'm just worried that I may be able to get more work on my own, you know? By the way I'm only 5'5 so I won't exactly be walking any runways in Paris anytime soon so it's not like agencies are begging for me lol :)
