You don't have a small head, their clients must just have fat heads.

Quasi-related: I have a large Irish melon, and I was trying to ice hockey helmets.  None fit, and I mentioned to my husband how a certain helmet was uncomfortably tight on the sides, and the guy helping us butts in and goes, "Well that's a men's extra large.  They don't get any bigger than this." 

I wanted to DIE.

I feel like as long as it helps pull off the look, size doesn't matter *snicker*

Ice hockey helmets?

A model who plays hockey?

Geebers, lemme guess, your husband is Canadian?  He Must be as you are a Canadian boy's dream!

Anyway, as an Irish-hockey-playing-5-foot-eleven-inch-model, you are welcome in my studio anytime, big head or not! smile

For me, it's better that I have a small head, because I do some fashiony stuff with my agency and I'm only 5'8 (smaller head compared to body makes you look taller, larger head to body makes you appear shorter).

For acting, having a bigger head seems to be preferable.

But you look proportionate, I don't think that it's an issue.

Haha no -- Ohio, but he started playing ice hockey once he hit college and loves it.  He's been my quasi-coach for the past year or so.

But I'll hold you to your invite if I'm ever in the Georgia area smile

Ask not what you can do about your head size - ask what your head size can do for you.

Maybe they were looking for mascots or cartoon characters?

Seriously, you'll be told that your head is; "too small", "too big", "not small enough", "not big enough", etc etc...

Funniest ever.

Whenever someone talks about head size I always think of the Michael Meyer's (sp) movie, So I Married An Axe Murderer. His father in the movie, played by him of course, is Scottish and one of the kids has an enormous head.

The father is complaining that the kids head is blocking the TV and he says, "Headdd...Headdd...get outta my way. My God...it's like an orange on a toothpick!"

Sounds way funnier with a heavy Scottish accent.

Leave the Tundra.

Come to Georgia.

I will leave the studio lights on for you!

If your hair dresser thinks you really have a small head, then, she should only charge you half price!

Jay Leno has a big head . . .
If your head isn't as big as his, I wouldn't worry.

However, there is a disproportionate number of successful entertainers, movie stars, politicians, and corporate executives that have larger than average head sizes.

Something to keep you awake worrying about late at night . . .

Wow, I thought this was going into an entirely different direction, as in

- which head do men think with more frequently?

- or maybe a discussion of tripod accessories?

I remember replying to a thread a few weeks ago that toy posted about strong facial features and I described their relation to head size in there, small vs large to be exact.
Your head is the way it should be, it's proportional and it can't be changed, so don't worry about it. I'm 5'9" and a male, and my head is smaller than my girlfriends who is 5'5", but neither of us look abnormal... In fact, quite the opposite, we both look totally normal, because our heads are the size and proportions that they are suppose to be.
You need to accept who you are and be confident with that person, regardless of head size, strong facial features, etc... Eluding confidence is your most important feature as a model.

I suffer from large melonitis.  I'd rather have a big head than a small head (guess I'm in luck) although it does make hats and helmets a pain to hunt for.

Not to be insensitive, but I'd say it really doesn't matter.  You have what you have and there's nothing you can do to change it, so who cares?  If you take every comment about your body/appearance to heart, it'll take all the fun out of modeling - which I'm assuming is your hobby rather than career, so it is SUPPOSED to be fun.  Your look wont' work for everyone . . . .there's no one "ideal" look that works for everyone.  I've been told that my eyes are too far apart, I know my features are very asymmetrical . . . but there's nothing I can do about any of it other than own it and accept it as my own personal "brand," so to speak.  Work what you've got! I'm told that I'm weird or interesting far more often than I'm told I'm pretty, and I've come to own that.

Lots of highly successful models have weird or unconventional features.  It seems that's almost more popular these days than elegant, refined faces.
