How Tall Do You Have to Be to Be a Model?
To be an editorial or fashion model, women will need to be between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet tall, while male models will need to be between 6 feet and 6-foot-2. Shorter models with good proportions should consider parts modeling for arms, hands and legs, using insight from the director of a modeling academy in this free video on modeling.

Have you ever wondered how tall do you have to be to be a model? It's really going to vary. Hi, I'm Hazely Lopez, director of Hazely Academy of Refinement and Modeling, and today I'm going to talk to you about how tall do you have to be to be a model? Once again, it's really going to depend on which part of modeling you are into. If you're parts modeling, like arms or extremities or your legs, it's really not going to matter how tall you are. It's going to be more about the proportions. If you are an editorial or a fashion model, you're a woman, you're basically looking at a height of 5"8 to 6 foot. If you're a male model, then you're going to be looking at a 6 to 6-point-2. It's really going to depend on what you're doing. It's really also going to be how you carry yourself and how fit you are. And that's really all they're looking for. I'm Hazely Lopez, director of Hazely Academy of Refinement and Modeling. And, just enjoy your height and be yourself.
