Modeling Tips: How to Look Taller

Being petite means you have to focus on your proportions when you model. Arching your back isn't the only method to looking taller. Here are some mistakes some models make when trying to look taller:

1. Only heels. Did you know that you can wear sneakers and look tall too? Put on some running shorts, and start posing or working out and now you have a perfect shot for your modeling portfolio. Stretching and seperating your legs, bending your body will make you look leaner.

2. Long Hair. If you are petite did you know that long hair can make you look shorter. Hair to your butt is not the way to go. Make your hair style shoulder length or at the chin, it will make your neck longer and your body not so heavy looking from your hair holding you down.

3. Short Skirts. Sometimes a shorter skirt can make your legs look even shorter....Put on a pencil skirt or a suit and the balance will make you look taller. Pair it with some high heels and you are ready to go.

4. Layering it. If you are petite wear clothing that don't just show skin, but allow you to feel lighter too. Heavy layers for your photos will only burry you. Keep is basic and simple. Don't overload with accessories, unless the necklace is ALL you are wearing in layers.
