A common question the team get asked is, ‘How Can I get into Beard Modelling?’, we have compiled some of the top tips from leading industry experts..
Go and visit professional agencies in person
It’s always better to see agents face to face as pictures can be deceiving. NEVER pay out for images before you go in. It won’t make a difference.
Make sure you are the height and weight requirement
If you are shorter, taller or bigger in build then the answer will probably be a no. We go by Industry standards and that’s why we need to make sure our models fit the clothes and sample sizes given on a shoot.
Be prepared for possible rejection
What agencies look for is very particular. Granted you could be a very good-looking person but we look for the whole package and if we think you will sell to our clients. Don’t be disheartened and listen to the feedback. Take it on board and always ask if they can suggest another avenue.
With all this being said, agents prefer wannabe’s to be curious, polite and professional as well as confident. Always remember your manners as this could be a potential business for you, you want to make sure it starts off on the right foot. Never come across as needy or desperate. We will know in the first few minutes whether we think you are right and no amount of neediness will win us over.
Dress stylish and have charisma
Great style is a big plus and so is personality. If we are on the fence about someone, these two things could definitely win us over. We also like to see that this is how you will be with our clients and this is a big winning point for us.
Grow A Beard
Pretty self explanatory really… make sure that you are well groomed! We find that a trip to your barbershop and application of beard oil are paramount, if you have been blessed with a thick and bushy beard then you are in luck. Be sure to style your hair to complement your beard. The right taper fade can help highlight your beard, check out this guide for the best taper fade haircuts.
