CysterWigs Model Search

 

We're currently looking for up to four (4) women to represent our brand in our social media, website listings, and marketing. 

You do not need to look like a conventional model. In fact, we want all women to feel represented by our store (CysterWigs.com). Because of this we highly encourage women of all ages, races, sizes, shapes, lifestyles, and backgrounds to consider entering our model search. (Trans women in all phases of transition are also highly encouraged to enter!) 

The key things we're looking for are your personal style and glamour! To quote Clark Gable: "I have known some mighty attractive redheads, brunettes, and yes, women with grey hair. Age, height, weight haven't anything to do with glamour." We agree!

Winners will officially model ultra premium human hair wigs and/or toppers for our store, spend a weekend in the heart of a really fun town (on us), and keep one of the ultra premium human hair wigs to take home! 

Sound good to you? Great! Keep reading for more details on how to throw your wig into the ring for consideration! ;)

TO WIN:

▪ CysterWigs will pick a minimum of two (2) and a maximum of four (4) winners based on entrant creativity and overall sense of style

 Winners will be wearing their own clothing for this shoot, so make sure your personal style really shines through in your contest entry photos! 

 We are specifically interested in finding stylish, glamorous models that are from groups generally under-represented in advertising. We highly encourage members of the following groups to consider participating: women over age 50; women with physical disabilities; women with tattoos, piercings, or alternative lifestyles; plus-size (and "goddess sized") women; women of color; women who self-identify as part of a minority group; trans women and individuals who identify as any flavor of "gender queer"; or anyone else who feels that they are glamorous and deserve a role in our online advertising. As long as you can rock some hair, we want you to feel like you have a home in our store and its marketing! Your sense of individual style, ease in front of a camera, and authenticity are what we're really looking for!

▪ Winner will be determined based upon an average of an internally scored numerical grading system and the accumulative likes of that image on the social media channel to which it is posted 

We highly encourage you to ask friends and family members to vote for (IE: "like")  your posts!

▪ Each individual submission will be scored separately

▪ Winners will be internally ranked based on score average; this ranking will determine selection order of free product on the day of the shoot

▪ Must currently reside in the United States and be a citizen (or legal resident) of the USA. (No exceptions.)

▪ Must agree to be featured on the CysterWigs website, CysterWigs social media, CysterWigs blog, and CysterWigs printed materials (if applicable)
