Do you dream of becoming the next Gigi Hadid or Mayowa Nicholas, gracing the cover of Vogue?
You'll need a lot more than just a pretty face if you desire to be a model.

Modeling as a career has become a much vaunted choice now with thousands of aspirants chasing the dream of becoming the next super model.

Although some people are fortunate enough to be plucked out of shopping mall crowds by scouting agencies, most aspiring models need to work hard to get themselves noticed by agencies and clients.

Becoming a model now involves discipline, perseverance and effort. You need a plan, you need to prepare and follow a strategy to stand out and get noticed.

Here's all you need to start your Modeling Career in the right way and aim for success:

Qualities

Apart from having the right look, aspiring models need to have a certain set of qualities to make it in the Fashion Industry.

1. Good people skills: Models need to make a good impression on a wide range of people as part of their work, so you'll need to be polite, prompt, professional, disciplined and respectful to progress in the industry.

2. Confidence: Confidence is one of the most important qualities of a model. As a model you'll meet a lot a top personas, standing in front of casting directors alone isn't an easy thing. You'll have to have at least an average level of self-confidence to walk the runway (especially in bikini) and be in front of a camera.

There's no need to be scared if you're the shy type, you'll get a lot of praises from your agency that'll boost your self-confidence.

3. You need to be organised: you'll need to be able to arrange photo calls, interviews, and travel schedule when you're working out.

You'll also need to be photogenic. If you freeze up in front of camera, no matter how attractive you are, your career won't be going very far. It is important to learn how to be relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.

You also need to be smart, hardworking, patience, slow to anger, flexible and able to embrace rejection.

Get a stunning modeling portfolio

Your modeling portfolio is the first thing that agencies and client will look at, and it's important to make a great first impression.
All aspiring models need to have a portfolio of photos that showcases their range.

This doesn't have to cost a fortune, it's advisable to take natural shots because natural photos, without makeup or edits, provides the best indication of a model's potential.

Don't fall for scams from fake firms offering to build you a wining portfolio in exchange for large sums of money...
