Welcome to our Modeling Program!
Our modeling program provides complimentary and discounted services to models with appropriate qualifications in a professional educational setting. Models experience new technicians, techniques, and trends as our licensed technicians expand their knowledge and skills under the direction of our Educators.
Designer’s Denn is always on the lookout for models to join our team. If you are interested in becoming a Designer’s Denn Model, please read through the policies provided on this site and then contact our front desk team to begin the process.
Our modeling program is a continuing educational process for all Designer’s Denn technicians. All modeling sessions are conducted under the expert guidance of our Educators. While we do ensure you will leave Designer’s Denn with a stunning finished product, please understand that these are training sessions. Due to the educational nature of these sessions, models should be open to our technicians’ learning process and the time required to master the techniques.
Any cancellation after 24 hours or no-show is considered a late cancellation. If a model accrues three late cancellations they will be disqualified from the modeling program.

Speak with our Front Desk team about being included in our modeling program! They will provide a short form for models to complete. These forms include basic contact information and space to indicate interest for any department’s modeling opportunities. This information is entered into a confidential database used only by our Front Desk team.
If you would like your information to be added to our database, you will be contacted by our Front Desk about new opportunities! If you would prefer to not be contacted directly, all modeling opportunities are sent via email and posted to our Facebook page. Once you receive that notification, feel free to call in to schedule!
For Haircuts: models receiving a cut will have a consultation at the start of each session to assess their hair quality, texture, and length. If the model’s hair does not fit the criteria for that day’s session, we will absolutely keep you in mind for any future opportunities that are suitable for their hair.
For Color: All color modeling reservations must be preceded by a consultation with a Master Colorist. This is to ensure each model’s hair is healthy enough for the technique and that the model’s desired outcome matches the technician’s training for that specific session. Models will sign a waiver indicating that they have spoken with a Master Colorist and that they have discussed the training session at length.
Due to the level of experience and the techniques taught during our classes, some textures of curly hair may not be appropriate for our class setting. We do however have a number of stylists on staff who are wonderful with specialized cuts for curly hair. Our front desk would be happy to schedule a reservation for a service with one of those stylists.
There are so many benefits! Models entered into our confidential database will have first access to all modeling opportunities. Based on their areas of interest, they will be contacted prior to the general public when sessions are available. New guests, even as models, will receive a packet with incentives for exploring our various departments. These are all in addition to meeting our newest technicians, experiencing the latest trends, and getting an inside look into this ever-changing industry!
Styling sessions are for our stylists and colorists to enhance their blowout techniques without cutting or coloring the hair. They will only wash, blow out, and style the hair.
Yes! Modeling sessions are spread across all of our departments, depending on our needs, and models are not required to receive haircuts prior to other modeling sessions.
Unfortunately, we do not offer trims during modeling sessions. All models must be open to some change of style. This style will be discussed and agreed upon during the time of your consultation and booking.
Our goal is to educate our stylist on creating the best look possible for the individual, so not all models will leave with the same haircut. While the overall style and techniques may be similar, each haircut will be individually tailored to that specific model.
Modeling sessions for haircuts are held Wednesdays and Thursdays during established day time class hours, January through October. Modeling for other departments such as Color and Spa services are held as needed, January through October. Due to the intense nature of the holiday season, modeling is postponed during November and December to allow our guests more flexibility in their scheduling.
All of our technicians are licensed to perform any service on which they are training and are overseen by our Educators to ensure that each session ends with a fantastic result!
