i got my hair and makeup done for a dance the other day, and the guy that did it liked it so much, he wanted to recreate it, and have a professional photographer come and take photos of me for advertising for the salon...what do I even do? I'm not a model...im not even that photogenic can you guys give me some tips? the shoot is in a few weeks.
I used to do hair modeling when I was in High School, it's easy! You don't usually get paid (although for print work you might) but you get your hair done for free which is great! If you become a model for the salon you will usually work expos and do advertising for them. Just be careful that you're not an experimental model (where they try new hair cuts/styles on you) because that can be bad news.
They will do all your hair and make-up so you just need to show up with clean hair and whatever it is they've asked you to wear. You should ask if wardrobe is provided, if not just wear basics like a white t-shirt and jeans/leggings unless they've specifically stated otherwise. Also, ask about jewellery. Do they want you to wear earrings or none at all?
Easy Easy Easy work, I say go for it. I'm no longer 16 but I still do some promo work and get paid VERY well for it!
And BS about you not being photogenic. I saw your post about being 6' tall and looked thru your pics. I wondered if you had been picked up to model yet...
You should get paid, otherwise it means you are working for free, and that means you were exploited. Also you should not pay to have your hair or makeup done, because that is an advertising expense that the salon must pay for.
Anyway, the salon should do your hair and makeup. Ask the people at the salon to do it; that is what they are good at. Also it would be fraud to advertise hair and makeup for a salon and not have the salon's staff members do the advertised hair an makeup on the model. Ask how early you need to show up for hair and makeup prep time before the photographer arrives.
Well first off if it's real it is a great oppurtunity for you not everybody gets to do what you could be doing just have a couple people you trust and talk with them and see if you can get some more info on what you'll be doing and so on.
hey sweetie I think you should try it this is a great oppurtunity and you should see where it takes you in life the lords gives blessings and this is one who knows what doors it might open for you and you have nothing to lose by doing this only to gain hope this helped
yea def. go and do it! I don't know about this paying thing..you don't always get paid for it unless you are modeling and the place was actually looking for you to hire...you just don't pay obviously for the hair and make up when they do it
