Preparing For a Go-See
Whether you are a signed model or not, models are required to go on go-sees.
A go-see is when a model visits a potential client in order for them to be able to
see how the clothing looks on her. This is a great opportunity for the model to
also sell herself with her personality!
Here are 7 tips for a successful go-see:
#1 - Do your homework: Research the client you’re going to meet with. You
should know the type of clothing they sell, what they are most well-known for and
as bonus information, who some of their models are. If a conversation happens
and you mention the latest swimsuit or the latest jacket they are selling, it shows
you have done your homework and know who they are.
#2 - Hair, skin and nails: Please do not show up with chipped nails. It’s better
to have no polish on at all than to show up with big red nails or chipped polish.
Nude or clear polish is best. Makeup should be natural, but not appearing as
if you just rolled out of bed. Keep it simple. Concealer, mascara, a little blush
and lip gloss is all you need. Your hair should not be overly styled. A ponytail,
messy high bun or loose and wavy strands are fine.
