Answering a Reader Question #174
how would having naturally kinky hair effect my image in modeling?
Hi, FutureModel! The "natural" look is actually very "in" for models--obviously for those that are models of color especially. So in a sense, your current hairstyle wouldn't have a negative effect on your image overall and could actually put you ahead of other models because you're sporting a look that is in demand. However, you may have to deal with having your hair straightened or styled in different ways for certain shoots, shows or projects. So be aware of that possibility.
In most cases you'll be asked if you are comfortable with such changes to your hair. If not, they'll work within your comfort zone or they may simply not book you because they're looking for someone that doesn't mind changing things up with their hair. It varies from gig to gig.
