It's Time to Find the Next Root Models!

Welcome to the 2020 Summer Root Model Search! We're looking for four fresh faces to represent Root for the next six months, & we want YOU to apply.

Since the very beginning, we’ve only used real customers & ourselves in our marketing efforts. No professional models, super fancy equipment or filters. Just raw, real beauty that represents our nontoxic community.

If you love beauty, creating high-quality content & Root, then this is the job for you. No matter your age, style or skill level, all are welcome to apply. If you love creating fun photos & Instagram Stories, you’re in luck! Your content will be featured on Root’s social media, website & marketing. Plus, we'll shower each model with Root products, discounts & more!

Here’s a glimpse of the type of photos we’re looking for from Root Models.

What Does a Root Model Do?

Our 2020 Summer Models will represent our company from May 4, 2020 - October 31, 2020.

  • NEW THIS TERM: Root Models post photos & videos on their Instagram as an extension of the Root Marketing Team.

What Are We Looking for in a Root Model?

There is no specific age or look required to be a Root Model. Whether you’re 20 or 60 years old, all are welcome to apply. We want to represent the Root Community as best as possible, & that means there's no one better than YOU!

When selecting our Root models, we are judging based on the following criteria. Here are some tips!

  • Photo Quality • The quality of photos submitted plays a huge role, as models will be producing their own photos. Please submit only high-quality, high-resolution images. Photos must be unedited. Fancy equipment isn’t necessary; we find that you can achieve professional quality even with an iPhone.
  • Photo Lighting • Natural lighting is key! (Stand facing a window so the natural light shines right on your face.) Root Models may not use any artificial lighting or filters in their content.
  • Video Quality • Videos should have exceptional quality & lighting & should be filmed against a solid white background.
  • Creativity • Think fun, pretty, fresh & light for photos! Having a creative eye for makeup application & being able to portray this is a huge factor in selecting our Root models.
  • Personality • A Root Model is friendly & excited to be a part of our company. Having a passion for natural products will take you far!

  • A welcome package valued at $250+ full of everything you need to get started as a Root Model.
  • NEW THIS TERM: EXCLUSIVE early access to new releases in exchange for content.

My daughter Bethany Heath loves your products. Got me on to them. Is a busy mom with 6 children and 1 more on the way. Loves natural things. Has her young daughter 11 starting on the same path. Just cause I’m her mom I’m just saying. She’s a busy mom on the go and still takes time to care for herself with your products. She would be your best model. Just not sure if she would take the time. She did comment on the mascara or maybe it was eyeliner that she was dunked tank a couple time and was as good as new. We do plan to go to Waverley and get a make over and get products just have to figure out the timing Thanks
