Hand and Feet Modeling
Claire Miles - September 18, 2022

We have seen a rise in hand and feet modeling as people from all around the world have realized its importance. Such a task has been extremely demanding in recent years as the fashion industry is booming. People need hand and feet models to show off nail paints, creams, and even lotions. This task is as tiring as the rest of the modeling jobs.

To begin a modeling job it is important that you checklist the set criteria. Most agencies begin hiring by providing a proper scale of qualities. These qualities include complexion, length of the fingers, and even nail shape. Square and oval nail shapes are considered to be more attractive and thus are an important requirement. Moreover, consent is taken before hiring individuals and they are told that their hands will be published in many newspapers and magazines.

Becoming a hand model is not easy but what is more challenging is the care that needs to be done frequently. This care involves moisturizing the hands thrice a day and avoiding all alkalis throughout the timespan of the contract. Alkalis are known to damage the external part of the skin causing roughing of the skin. To avoid this, alkalis and any harsh chemicals are strongly condemned. It is important to note that being a hand model comes with its share of challenges.

A model explained that she had to clean a washroom for 8 hours just because the videographers could not capture the right shot and had to redo the entire thing. Moreover, a hand model’s best friend is vaseline. It is a perfect blend of moisture and gives the skin a fresh glow. Many hand models apply a thick layer of vaseline which instantly makes the skin so much more photogenic and attractive. Thus, it is important to realize that even hand modeling comes with extreme exhaustion.
