Hello Gorgeous Babes!

BACK AGAIN BY POPULAR DEMAND! After a dozen years of working hard in the plus size modeling industry since I was a teen, walking in NYFW and appearing in Vogue Italia, I finally decided to share everything I know and more, on how YOU can become a successful Plus Size Model!! Created by a Plus Size Model for the aspiring Plus Size Model.

I have worked with Fenty X Savage, Forever21, Ashley Nell Tipton Designs, 11 Honore, Torrid, StitchFix, Tunnel Vision, SLINK Jeans and MORE .

Besides sharing with you what I have already learned from time and being signed to multiple agencies across the country, I can share with you all the tips and tricks the Agencies, photographers, and your favorite brands are looking for to hire YOU!

Sharing Knowledge

Over the past ten years, the plus size modeling industry has changed immensely and is growing rapidly every day into an over 26 Billion dollar business — and I’ve witnessed it all! From the days before the internet to the now social media driven industry — how can you keep up? Where do you start? Who do you trust? AND GOOGLE CAN’T TELL YOU THE ANSWERS!

BAM ! ! ! The ultimate course for aspiring plus size models was born!

I created this course because I get the question daily from so many people — HOW DO I BECOME A PLUS SIZE MODEL???? From women AND men all over the world. This course is to let everyone know the truth about becoming a plus size model and what it takes to really shine and BOOK.THAT.SHOOT, baby!

“As my blog has grown, I have had more opportunities to model for various brands. The class dedicated to posing was really helpful, now when I go on set I’m much more confident.” Brianne Huntsman (content creator, PR, brand management & former student)

“Hayley’s insight on classes to take, who to connect with, how to succeed in such a crazy rat race town (Los Angeles) was life changing! I seriously can not recommend her enough for all modeling things!” Kelsie Nick (plus size model & former student)

How does it work?
