How to Look Like a Model
Looks don’t matter, and you should be confident in your own skin no matter what. But when you look at the top models and celebrities in Hollywood, it’s hard not to feel a little bit jealous.
Many people think that looking like a model is entirely genetic. And while it helps to have some perfectly polished strands of DNA composing your physique, you don’t need to be born a model to become one.
If you’re ready to boost your confidence and become an attention magnet no matter where you go, we’ve got the tips and tricks to get you there. Here’s how you can look like a model.
Let’s Face It
There are a lot of core features that make a model seem more attractive than the average joe. And perhaps the biggest contributor to their success is their face. Models need to have a chiseled jaw, perfect hair, and flawless skin to be ready when the paparazzi comes their way.
Get a Jaw Dropping Jaw
A defining feature of both male and female models alike is that they have a jawline that can cut glass. Having a slim, defined face is one of the main factors an agent will look for scouting for models to add to their client list.
It can help to be born with defined cheekbones, but you can reduce the appearance of puffiness around your cheek and jaw by just making simple diet adjustments. Namely, reduce your sodium intake.
When you eat salt, your body retains fluids that you consume. This causes you to appear, and feel, bloated. Reducing your consumption of processed foods and trying not to add salt to your food can help. Also, increase the amount of fruits and veggies into your diet to help stay hydrated.
If you still can’t chisel your jaw to your liking, it might be because you have some excess fat in your buccal spaces. This basically means you have chubbier cheeks. You can get these fat pads removed through a cosmetic surgery to achieve a thinner looking jaw.
Hair Care Essentials
Have you ever seen a model with fly-aways, frizz, or split ends? Probably not. And while many of the top supermodels have their own stylists to keep their hair looking fresh, you don’t need an assistant to keep your hair healthy.
The products you use can play a huge role in your hair health. Many products that you’d buy in a supermarket or general store contain a number of harmful chemicals for your hair health. Professional hair care products generally use higher quality ingredients and more gentle cleansers to ensure that your hair remains in good shape.
Next time you get your hair done, ask your hairdresser what types of products they used on your hair. These salon-grade products are in-line with what stylists are using for the hottest supermodels in the magazines.
Win With Your Skin
You’ll never see a pimple or a blemish on a model’s face. And while photoshop can help to an extent, you won’t land any gigs with an acne-filled contour. Be sure to cleanse, moisturize, and use spot treatments morning and night to keep zits at bay.
If fine lines and wrinkles are ruining your youthful complexion, skin tightening treatments are minimally invasive and work well to rejuvenate aging skin. Models use treatments like Botox or Thermi all the time, so you can be confident that you’ll see results.
Building Your Body
Models have faces to die for, but they also have flawless bodies. Hourglass figures, six pack abs, and perfectly contoured hips are mainstays in the world of modeling. And achieving your perfect look might not be as unattainable as you think.
Expect to Exercise
As much as we hate to admit it, you won’t get six pack abs from laying on the couch and binging Netflix shows. You need to get up and get moving!
In order to shed layers of fat to tighten the skin around your abdomen, you’ll want to engage in intense cardio activities. This includes running, biking, HIIT workouts, swimming, and more. If you can get your body into a calorie deficit where you’re burning more than you’re consuming, you’ll lose weight. That will get you closer to those desired curves.
But doing only cardio will burn both fat and muscle. You need to strike a balance, and that means incorporating strength training into your regimen as well. Doing exercises with low reps and high weight will build strength, whereas higher reps with a lower weight will get you a toned figure.
Generally, female models should focus a bit more on toning, but male models need to spend a little extra time bulking up. Regardless, a balanced regimen of cardio and strength training is essential.
Nutrition for a New You
Exercise is only half the battle. If you want to look and feel like a model, you need to eat like one too. That means cutting out processed foods and bringing in natural goodness.
Processed foods are anything that are altered during preparation to make them more sustainable on store shelves. That includes most snack foods, but it often includes most meats and dairy products too. Processed foods can increase your risk of developing overall health issues.
Cutting out processed foods doesn’t mean you need to throw away the yogurt in your fridge — it just means you should try to incorporate more plant-based foods into your diet. Increase your consumption of fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, and whole grains to keep off the weight that you’re losing through exercise. Plus, you’ll just feel a lot better overall!
Even models can struggle to shed some stubborn pockets of fat in different areas of their body. Body sculpting techniques are effective ways of eliminating or reducing fat deposits to improve the appearance of skin and tissue. It can give you an extra helping hand to achieve your best body.
Tummy tucks, or abdominoplasties, are a popular example of body sculpting that involves removing excess fat and skin from the stomach. However, not all body contouring procedures are surgical.
Thermi is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency to heat subdermal fat to a point beyond repair. This is a great solution for models especially as it won’t leave any scars, giving you that swimsuit body you’ve always wanted.
Close Out With the Right Clothes
A model’s body is their selling point, but their outfits can seal the deal. Even if certain elements of your body are leaving you feeling a little insecure, you can fill in some of the gaps by adapting the right sense of style.
For one, put aside those baggy clothes. Wearing tight, form-fitting clothing will accentuate your features and make you look thinner. Additionally, try to keep it simple. Neutrals tend to be your best bet when choosing the right fits.
On top of that, accessorize to your heart’s content. A necklace, bracelet, and ring is a simple addition to your look that can complete an outfit. Jewelry is a great way to be able to reflect your taste and create a good first impression. Having a good sense of style can show recruiters that you’ll be able to pull off any outfit for any photoshoot.
Becoming a model is within grasp for everyone — it just takes a little bit of extra work. When it comes to getting that perfect jaw, cut out some sodium. And to get perfect skin and flawless hair, be sure you’re using the right products at the highest quality.
To get an hourglass figure, combining cardio and strength training with a balanced diet is the best way to get a toned physique. However, you can get cosmetic surgeries to help you cross the finish line if stubborn deposits are the only thing between you and full confidence.
Finally, you can’t forget to dress for success. Models are always up to date on the latest fashion trends, so wearing form-fitting clothing that matches the current societal standards will keep you ahead of the pack.
