Tips from Some of the Most Recognized Male Models
If you are hoping to be the next male supermodel, you’re probably wondering what you can do to stand out from your competition. And, the competition is stiff. But there are a few tried-and-true basics to remember, according to some of the most recognized male in the world. Here’s their advice:
Garrett Neff stresses the importance of hitting the gym. He said, “The most important thing for me is mixing it up so I don’t get bored. Running, swimming, tennis, yoga, classes at Equinox, kickboxing at Gotham Gym. I just picked up paddle boarding and tried anti-gravity yoga for the first time this summer. Trainers are really helpful when it comes to keeping it new. Mine comes to the apartment and we do floor workouts with lightweights if I run out of my own ideas or if my schedule is tight.”
Cory Bond stocks up on dry shampoo to keep his hair healthy. “I use dry shampoo a lot because I don’t like to really wash my hair every day,” he said. “It doesn’t style well for work. It’s better for your hair not to wash it all the time.” It’s all about the hair for Paul Sculfor, too. The model shares, “The best tip I’ve had came actually from an old aunt of mine. You may laugh but it’s to wash your hair in eggs once a month – the protein really helps.”
Noah Mills knows you have to mix and mingle but remain professional. He said, “It’s a key part of the job to go out and meet people. You need to be professional but fun at the same time. It’s a skill and I see a lot of people slip up.”
Mikkel Jensen agrees that you have to be social but not too social. There a difference between networking with colleagues and simply going out on the town. He sums this up as, “Don’t lose yourself.”
Simon Nessman says you have to learn to stay grounded and manage the butterflies when you’re brushing shoulders with the industry’s best. He explains, “It’s easy to build it up into this crazy thing, but when you’re on set with a group of people, for the most part, they’re just normal human beings and you have regular conversations with photographers and stylists. It’s not really any different than the real world.”
The basics of success? Work hard, stay visible, and take care of your health. The rest is up to fate.
