Real Life Q&A – Willing To Shave?

Q: What do you think of keeping a beard/ mustache, but having headshots without? Stating “Willing to shave” in audition videos?

A: No problem, as long as it’s not the other way around. If you have headshots with heavy facial hair and you’re currently clean-shaven, this could cause a problem. Producers might be attached to the look in the photo and you might blow an opportunity because you wouldn’t be able to re-grow the look in time for the shoot. Also, you don’t need to state, “willing to shave.” Unless you have a mustache that is currently in the Guinness book of world records, the producers will assume you might be willing to shave. Besides, it can sound a little desperate, like stating, “willing to do frontal nudity.” If they are interested, they will ask. Producers may be many things but being shy isn’t one of them.
