Welcome to Model U!
Designer’s Denn Model U provides free and discounted services to models with appropriate qualifications in a professional educational setting. Models explore new styles and trends as our licensed technicians expand their knowledge and skills under the direction of our Master Educators.
Designer’s Denn is always on the lookout for new, dedicated models to join our team. If you are interested in becoming a Designer’s Denn Model U participant please read through the policies provided on this site and then contact our front desk team to begin the model call process.
Model Project Policies
Designer’s Denn Model U is a continuing educational process for all Designer’s Denn technicians. All modeling sessions are conducted under the expert guidance of our Master Educators. While we do ensure you will leave DD Model U with a stunning finished product, please do understand that these are indeed training sessions. Due to the educational nature of these sessions, models should be open to the learning process of our technicians and the time required to master the techniques being practiced. The following rules are in place to protect the educational process of our technicians.
Confirmation emails will be sent two weeks prior to the scheduled modeling sessions. All models must RSVP by the stated date. If a model has not confirmed by the RSVP date they will not be guaranteed a seating at the modeling session.
If a model, for some reason, does not receive the confirmation email, they must contact Designer’s Denn no later than one week prior to the date of the modeling session to confirm their attendance.
Models must confirm their reservation in order to be guaranteed a seating at the session.
Any model failing to arrive to a confirmed reservation without notifying Designer’s Denn at least one hour prior to the seating time is considered a no-show. Two no-shows will disqualify the model from the program.
Any cancellation after 24 hours is considered a late cancellation. If a model accrues three late cancellations they will be disqualified from the modeling program.
If a model has not had their hair cut at Designer’s Denn within 6 months they must have their hair reassessed at a model call.
What to Expect
Day of Reservation
- All models must arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled seating time.
- Models who arrive late are not guaranteed a seating.
- Models who have not properly confirmed their reservation are not guaranteed a seating.
- If models arrive with altered hair that does not meet the required, length, health, style or color specified for the class, they are not guaranteed a seating.
- Models must arrive with clean, dry hair.

Open Model Call
Model calls will be held from 3:30 – 4:00 pm on the 1st Tuesday and Wednesday of every month. All models interested in participating in Designer’s Denn Model U must attend a model call in order to have their hair assessed for condition, texture, length and overall appropriateness for cutting and styling classes. Attending a model call does not guarantee acceptance into the modeling program. Please understand that not all hair types are appropriate for the styles we are teaching in the class setting.
Once accepted into the program, existing models are invited to Color Call, a separate modeling call held occasionally to fill our color training needs. All color models must also be active models for our cutting and styling classes.
Once you have been accepted into Model U your profile will be added to our on hand models and you will be contacted as needed.
