Do we always need to show our body with modeling? And wear wigs and extension?

I'm muslim and my religion asks me to not show my body parts such as the legs and my belly. But i have no problem with the rest of my body. I also can't put extension on my hair or wigs. And I'm scared this would be a huge problem and won't make me able to have access to some things other models have access to.

Hi there:

It depends on the type of modeling. Many large retailers such as Macy's are very inclusive and feature models wearing conservative attire and hijabs in their catalogs. You can still pursue a career in modeling without compromising your personal values. :-)

Hello Kadiatou, thank you for your question. I respect the fact that you want to put you religion first, but the truth is you have chosen a field that deals in making women more beautiful that would include some of the things you mentioned. I'm not saying you can't make it without hair extensions, or wigs but I do believe you will have a harder time trying to find work. Best of luck

Hello
There are different types of modelling that doesn't need to show body , like for example you can be a part model where you can pursue a career of your choice with out compromising your personal values and norms . Modelling is all about promoting fashion and products , In the case of part modelling your hands , foot will be the show stoppers , and you can be a hand model promoting brands that make jewelry , products and being a foot model you can promote all kind of footwear and jewelry too .
I hope this answer might help you .
