Are There Really Short Modeling Agencies for Girls – Or is This Just a Myth?
Finding short modeling agencies can be an overwhelming task because not many are exactly calling out for height challenged girls.
Getting Started as a Petite Model
You may not find an agency that specifically specializes in petite size modeling; but there are some of the “traditional” agents that are willing to work with models of all sizes.
Requirements for Shorter Models (Petite)
- height range 4″9′-5″7′ and size 9/10 or less; any shorter falls under teenagers or preteen modeling
- pretty face, great facial features, good posture, healthy hair, elegance
- work your body well and get in shape since you’re a bit disadvantaged by taller models
- travel; willing and flexible to relocate; the best cities are New York, LA, London and Paris, which will require you to always be on the move.
- May be required to work without pay for sometime as a beginner – Don’ t worry, rewards come to those who put in the time.
Approaching a Model Agency
- create a portfolio with high-quality snapshots preferably by a professional photographer. Accentuate your best features.
- specify which area you will be good at; print, commercials, runway etc.
- do not put all your focus on your short stature; highlight your qualities and talents
- send your resume to as many agents as possible, and let a hiring agency look you over for opinions and recommendations
Some reputable short modeling agencies include IMG, Ford Models, Elite Models, Eye for I, to magazines like Bella Petite, Glamour, Elle, Cosmo Girl and others.
