Not Controlling Your Hairstyle Can Hurt Your Modeling Career

Allowing a hairstylist to make decisions on your hair style can cause you to lose Model Jobs and possibly ruin your modeling career

Some stylists do not listen and do what they want. The time you are sitting in their chair is 30-45 minutes of time where they have control over a hot guy and get to call the shots. They are the artist.

Hairstyles are important because they have a great impact on a man's "style" or "look." However, it is likely that your stylist has never cut hair for a real modeling job or has only cut hair for female models.

We all know that hair stylists are an important part of a photo shoot, but do you know that your hair stylist in your hometown may cause you to lose a modeling job? Stylists cut your hair for one look. However, you hair can often be cut so that you can achieve multiple "looks". This means you need give a studio stylist length of hair to work with. There is not much a studio stylist can do with very short hair.

Pay Attention During Haircuts and Control Decisions on Your Hairstyle

You need to be direct and pay attention while your stylist is cutting your hair, checking and double-checking that your stylist is not cutting your hair differently from your head shot or audition photos. Take your photos with you to your salon and be clear that you need to look like your photo. Repeat it again. It is crucial that your hair stylist understand what will look appealing in photographs.
