The first thing to do is evaluate your standing as far as looks are concerned. Do you think you are ‘pretty/goodlooking’ enough to be a model according to the stereotyped standards?
Once that part is out of the way, then you need to groom yourself and get a portfolio of your pictures made. This is going to be sent to the modeling agencies which, then, may or may not hire you. Visit a reputable grooming saloon and get a nice haircut, ask the make-up artist to apply the necessary make-up for a photo shoot and you are good to go! It would be wise to keep a variety of pictures in different angles and showing your various moods in the portfolio. This will portray your versatility as a model.
You can also decide on a theme for your portfolio. Perhaps showing a variety of you in gothic style with the necessary make-up, or maybe showing the hip, ‘punk’ side of you?
