Eliza Cole: Future Supermodel Extraordinaire

"My name is Eliza Cole, I am 20 years old from South Carolina, a true Southern Belle. I am a full-time cosmetologist with dreams and aspirations to be a full-time model. I competed in several local pageants as well as my high school pageant. When I was a Senior in high school, I was a Senior Model Rep for a local photographer. This is when the modeling bug hit me. I loved being in front of a camera where my fashion skills came out.  My goal is to be a catalog model, but if this does not work out, I would love to continue modeling as well as photoshoots."  

What do you do and why do you do it?

Currently, I am a Cosmetologist assistant and makeup artist. My plan is to one day be a full-time model, doing hair and makeup on the side. I started modeling locally through a photographer friend who suggested I try out for the local fashion shows. This led me to several local runway modeling opportunities. Modeling for me is all about the presentation, the presentation of hair, makeup, and wardrobe. Modeling also gives self-esteem through my walking or photo shoots; I am in charge.

How does what you do benefit others? 

Through my professional, I can enlighten someone’s day and self esteem just by changing their appearance. My experience has also led me to styling brides hair and makeup for the wedding, as well as the bridal portrait. Modeling also gives the same chance to show a younger person that with hard work and not taking no for an answer, you can anything that you choose to do!

Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. 

My modeling career path started when I met a husband and wife team from Chicago at our local fashion week. We did several photoshoots locally that landed me in a magazine, The International Fashion Magazine of the Arts. From there, and through the team, I was able to walk in NYFW in 2019 for several designers: Krissy King, Marco Not Polo, and Vanny Tousignant. Also, I was a shoe model for John Ashford.  I did a photo shoot in Utah as well as several locations in NYC while there for fashion week 2019.  My cosmetologist career journey started with my mom who has been a Cosmetologist for over thirty years. She would allow me to come to her shop to practice washing her client’s hair and assisting her. From this experience, I enrolled in my high school’s Cosmetology program. By taking classes in high school, I was able to get my training, and then passed the South Carolina State Boards for my license.

Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? 

I would like to travel the world and model full time. While modeling, I can use my Cosmetologist and makeup skills at photo shoots. 

If you could have one superpower to help you further your purpose, what would it be and why? How would you use it? 

For a superpower, I would choose to read people’s minds. I would use this gift to understand what people are thinking and help them to fulfill their dreams.
