You should have a model personality
How to become a successful model is in you own hand just you have to follow some instruction. Many nice and beautiful boys and girls have not modeling face and sometimes just a normal looking face can outshine in the photos. it needs much more than just a  pretty face and figure only to become a famous model. All you need is the total package in you a mix of genetics and personality in the modeling industry. Take some modeling classes and gain some modeling skills and tips, to become masters of your own appearance. You should be somewhere between 15 and 22 years old, though probably closer to fifteen. Agencies tend to want to invest their time in someone young. You should be tall, long-legged, and lean. The minimum height is usually about 5'8", and average weight for a model is 108-125 lbs. If you're male. You can start out a little later, roughly between the ages of 18 and 25. They won't want you to look too childish. The good news is that a man's modeling career usually lasts longer than a woman's, and since ten-year-old boys more often dream of blowing things up rather than strutting the Hugo Boss runway, this side of the biz tends to be less competitive as well. Average dimensions for a male model are a height of 5'11"- 6'2" and a weight of 140-165 lbs. You should also be fit (not bulging with muscles, but definitely healthy). All right, so let's assume you've got all of these qualifications. You are, for example, a willowy 16-year-old girl who's on the basketball team, could squeeze her body through a set of prison bars, and causes old men who shouldn't be ogling you to stumble over their walkers. That's great. On top of that you have clear skin, perfect teeth, and your own brand of je ne sais quoi. Fantastic. It's time for the next step.

You must have a great portfolio
Finish your homework and read up some modeling magazine / books / tips, so that you know what to do. Get inside information from experience models, stylists, photographers, makeup artists etc. Do some professional photos shooting to create a portfolio. Ask reputable or find a friend photographer or photographer student for test shoots, or no salary model for local magazines. Collect all the photos you can get and put them together into a professional looking portfolio binder. Now you have something to show agencies and clients. The more photo shooting session you can take the more experience you gain and the more comfortable you feel in front of the camera.

Look for an agency
Now you have a number of good photographs and a professional portfolio, now it is time to show the world who you are and what you can do for them. When you go for an audition or photo shooting, leave them a photo so they can remember what you look like and contact you. The final step is to find an agency (or agent) or become a freelancer. Whichever path you take, you have to keep mailing out your photos, going to casting calls, getting in touch with casting directors and agents to make sure someone hires you. Have your photo with measurements and contact information. Post the photo to all the modeling agencies in your area. You can also make a slide show and put on the to share the world.
