Good things take their time coming and every career has its own demands and unique sacrifices. Most aspiring models don't realize there is a lot of hard work involved and get frustrated when things don't move quickly. But you should know better - don't give up, because you have chosen this as your career and you cannot rely on others to put in the effort required. You need to be physically, mentally and emotionally strong to make it and to survive here. So it is critical to understand the industry in order to learn to separate the emotional aspect of your self from the 'product' aspect.

Are you dreaming of becoming a fashion model? Do you want to be the next beautiful face on a popular magazine cover? Does the idea of parading down a runway in the latest fashions appeal to you? Becoming a fashion model isn't as difficult as you might think.

Don't assume that all models must weight 100 pounds and stand five feet eight inches, this is simply not true. As in other occupations, fashion models come in many shapes, colors, and sizes and perform a variety of modeling jobs for magazines, newspapers, fashion shows, and television.

If you want to know more about how to pursue the fascinating career of being a fashion model, here are a few tips that can help:

Read books on fashion modeling. Starting in high school or even before, visit the library to borrow books or videos about the art of fashion modeling. Resources may address related topics, such as grooming, fashion, and etiquette and not just fashion modeling alone. Learn how to walk, talk, and smile gracefully, among other things, so you will be ready when a fashion modeling opportunity comes along, since being pretty sometimes isn't enough.

Take an actual modeling class. Many community colleges or civic groups offer non-credit classes for personal enrichment. Enroll for the next fashion modeling class, which sometimes may include modeling techniques under other titles, such as "Deportment" or "Fashion Design." Learn all you can about classy hairstyles and the latest cosmetics to prepare for your calling to the fashion world.

Cultivate your personal beauty in preparation for fashion modeling. Find the best hairstyle for your features. Experiment with makeup for a look that enhances rather than hides your natural beauty. Exercise and eat healthy for a figure that moves gracefully and confidently for fashion modeling. Try on various styles of clothing to identify the styles that flatter your appearance. Practice smiling in the mirror, and determine which is your "best" side. Most fashion models prefer to be photographed from either the left or right side.

Enroll in a professional modeling course. The goal for these classes is not necessarily to get students a modeling job, but to teach them how to accent their best features to achieve feminine confidence and a self-assured demeanor. You will look, feel, and move more comfortably after taking a course of this type. You also can make professional contacts who may steer you to an agency for an audition if you appear to be what they are looking for.

Respond to an fashion model audition call. Modeling agencies frequently advertise on the radio and in newspapers when they are sponsoring a search for new talent. They may appoint a certain day when applicants are invited to visit the modeling agency for a tryout and possible interview. Call ahead to find out what type of model they are looking for and whether you need to make special preparations, such as bringing props for a photo shoot.

Fashion models are hired for any number of assignments. They dress in Halloween costumes to promote a new store opening at the mall. They deliver singing telegrams. Models can be photographed in fashions for "women's size" clothing or for senior citizen apparel lines. Contact your favorite department store to find out how to apply as a fashion model for their catalog. Never fear rejection either. Modeling is a competitive business and you have to be relentless in your goals.
