Like any other types of jobs, modeling is as well a competitive profession. By that it means that being beautiful, tall and skinny won’t really get you booked that easily because there are other models that are equally or much better than you. Moreover, model agencies sometimes open castings for few slots and in which most of them will choose the very best ones. If you’re not their typical model, then you’ll have to go-see again and again. This makes it a little bit frustrating on your part.
On the entire span of your modeling career, there will be times that you will be required to go abroad and work for an agency there. This would mean that you have to live on your own, away from your family and friends.
A model’s career is mostly based on his/her physical attributes. Therefore, as a model you must control your diet, do your exercises on a regular basis and get enough sleep to be healthy and fit. Aside from that, you will also need to have your hair well-maintained as well your nails and toenails. This aspect in modeling makes it tough because you have to conform to the society’s preferences of “beauty”, which will put pressure and expensive on your part.
At times, models would feel as though they are mere dolls and that they have to do what they are told to do despite one’s principles. Wearing clothes that you are not comfortable at but you’ll have to do it anyway and make it look good on you even if it already kills you inside.
