Interview: Model Barbara Cia (Czech Republic)

Bijgewerkt op: 28 mrt.

Can you tell us a little about you?

I come from Ostrava, industrial town in Czech Republic. My both parents are musicians and artists so it's thanks to them that I was allowed to sing in kids opera choir at the age of 8 and therefore do what I loved since little kid. There became my hunt for more arts to discover and later I was even at the high school of jewellery making and precious stone processing. When I moved to London before my twenties to continue as an actress, somehow I got into a modelling, which as it happened become my full-time job and hobby in one.


If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

Maybe it sounds unlikely, but I wouldn't change anything. I've learned to love my body the way it is. It's me.


How did you start modelling?

I actually moved to London to continue in doing theatre/acting and I bumped into few opportunities to be in Tony&Guy Academy as a head/hair for their teachers and student's finals. And on about fourth session Jayson Gray (many awards winner hair colourist and amazing man) asks me if I want to come more regularly and suddenly I'm there doing hair model almost 4 years.


What do you think of the work as a model?

I think it's an amazing job, but also hard and not for everybody. Standing in front of the camera or walking catwalk is only the top of the iceberg. There's so much work and preparation behind.


What is your beauty regimen?

Proper wash up of my face, little massage and good splash with cold water. This all includes neck. That's really it. 


What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

Well I think I wouldn't point out a qualities but rather say it's my personality itself.

I've never been ordinary and it would bother me at some point in my life. But friends around me always made sure I won't get lost in trying to be "normal" :) .


What are your plans for the future?

Haha so many, but mainly finish my distant school psychoneurology course, keep traveling definitely and also start my own business.


What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

There are so many, but probably my top three would be my sailboat captain course that i have completed 6 years ago, hiking and sleeping in wild on my own in Mallorca and Seeing Alhambra.


Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?

Stop and think twice before you say yes or do anything. You don't have to do what you didn't sign up for. Also best models learned how to be professional and easygoing.


What do you think of the magazine?

Modellenland Magazine is amazing mag. Showcasing talents and giving them opportunity to shine is real gold. Thank you :)
