If you type in ‘Modelling Agency’ into Google you are instantly hit with millions of responses, making it difficult for aspiring models to select an agency to apply for and be able to differentiate between those that are genuine and those that are trying to scam you.
There are several points that you can use to identify whether an agency is trustworthy and genuine or not. The biggest identifier of these unrepeatable agencies is those that charge large sums of money, or require fees. A good agency makes their money from the commission earned for your jobs rather than a direct fee paid by the model.
One of the most prolific scams is that of charging high amounts for portfolios, to apply for a modelling agency you do not need to have existing professional photographs, and once you have joined the agency should not charge you a lot, if anything, to begin to develop your portfolio. They may suggest photographers to you to start your portfolio and as your career in the modelling industry develops your portfolio will grow with photographs from your jobs.
Any money that you owe the agency for items such as comp cards or shoots with photographers to develop your portfolio will be paid by the money earned from jobs you get.
To protect yourself the best advice is to research any agency thoroughly before a meeting, and if they ask you to sign anything on the first meet and if the ask you to sign or pay then run away. Any reputable agency won’t ask you to do this.

Good hair is an enviable characteristic of anyone’s appearance, but it is not just the prefect haircut and colour that is important. A healthy, glossy head of hair is just as important and a person’s diet affects this as hair requires the right food to be strong and healthy.
Hair is made of keratin, a type of protein, and therefore a protein rich diet is essential; fish, chicken, eggs and soya are good sources and one portion should be eaten everyday. As well as protein hair requires a blend of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, especially Omega 3, B6, B12 and folic acid. Some good foods include; fish, bananas, citrus fruit, wholegrain, meat and dairy.
If a healthy balanced diet is eaten, hair will get all it needs, and an extra boast can be gained from multivitamin supplements too.

The sun has finally come out to play, and all everyone wants to do is be in the sunshine. But in all our excitement we can’t forget the importance of keeping your skin safe.
Bright red people wandering the streets is a common sight, but sunburn is both unattractive and painful. Sunburn is caused by UV rays, which don’t actually feel warm, so even if there is a cool breeze or you are in the sea you can end up burnt. Not only does it look awful, it is terrible for your health as well. The bright red appearance of the skin is from the swelling of blood vessels and the blood rushing into them. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can also increase chances of melanomas and skin cancer.
The answer is sunscreen, sunscreen and more sunscreen! You need to be able to choose the right SPF for you, and remembering to reapply throughout the day. Sunglasses are also important, in protecting your eyes and stopping you squinting which can lead to crow’s feet.
Sunscreen will protect your skin from the outside, but a big problem in the summers heat is dehydration. Almost all models swear by drinking plenty of water and keeping well hydrated with plenty of water as well, you will feel a lot better and your skin will thank you for it too!
