Preteen models now adorn glamorous niches in the Parthenon of modeling art. There had never been such a scope for the young adolescents in the modeling industry. Now, preteens appear in TV commercials, print media like newspapers and similar other releases, billboards, electronic marketing messages and mails, print brochures, field publicity campaigns and the like. They appear as models for lifestyle articles, health products, apparels, body lotions, cosmetics, hair oils, hair conditioners, soaps and detergents, shampoos, nail polishes, etc., etc.
This phenomenon speaks volumes for the abundant opportunities awaiting preteen modeling talents across the globe, cutting across national barriers. Amongst these young talents are under-teen boys, girls and talented kind and even cute and pert babes!
The nationality and region of these preteen models is as diverse as the diversity of human talents. Among them there are young talents spanning the continents. There are Latin Americans, Americans and Canadians, Europeans belonging to virtually every nationality - Spanish, French, Portuguese, English, Scottish, Germans, Finland, Norway; Indians, Japs, Koreans and Chinese, West Asians, Australians, South Africans, etc. Unlike other specific categories of models, these preteen being young persons need to be groomed and developed by their parents or guardians. Hence those who have talented kids who could be groomed into successful models need to take the extra care and should spend quality time with their talented young children to up-bring them to become professional models. Thus, it is imperative on the part of both the parent and the child to gather sufficient knowledge and information about preteen modeling. Alongside, they need to acquire enough skill to groom the child talent.
It is a fact to reckon with that preteen modeling is often a prelude to successful fashion modeling. This aspect has been found to be true in the case of a whole host of celebrity
models across the global spectrum. For instance, take the case of Lindsay Hogan or Katherine Heigl. Both these celebrity models started their career as preteen models. It seems the general principle of "catch them young" holds good for the modeling industry. May be so, as it a profession in which long and sustained grooming and workouts to keep and develop a super figure is essential. Brooke Shields confides that her success is fundamentally allied to her preteen modeling and thereafter the relentless pursuit of excellence in maintaining a super figure. Amongst preteen models, Lissane Falk is an outstanding example. Falk started her career as a child model and later she could scale the heights of being a celebrity actress.
