Photo by Karston Tannis for The Curl Revolution

One of the top questions I get in my DM's is "how can I be a NaturallyCurly model?" and I'm happy to say we are always looking for models to feature in our articles. You'd be surprised (or maybe you wouldn't) how difficult it is to find photos of natural curls, coils and waves - coming from someone who's spent hours, days, and probably weeks of my life searching for photos of curly hair. So we have a need, and if you're interested in filling it, here's what you need to know. 

What are we looking for?

We are looking for models who have previous photoshoot experience and are comfortable working in front of a camera. We are looking for models of all ages, ethnicities, genders, sizes, skin colors, and curl patterns. We want our photography to be as representative as our community is diverse.  It is particularly challenging for us to source photos of women in their 40s and above, so if this is you we want to hear from you! 

Our primary requirement is that you must be located in the Austin, Texas area, as that is where we are based and where our photo shoots take place. 

How to reach out to us

Fill out our application form here. It includes all of the necessary information we need for our selection process, such as:

  • your contact information
  • your hair type
  • headshots of your hair in its natural state

We have photoshoots quarterly, so we will reach out to you if you are a fit for an upcoming photoshoot we're planning. For example, if our next photoshoot is for mothers and kids, we will review our submissions and reach out to those models.

We look forward to hearing from you!
