About Annette Dominguez-O’Hair
A Southern California native, Annette has over 25 years of experience on the talent, creative and business side of the entertainment and fashion industries. She worked for 15 years as a commercial print model, actress, and on-camera host, in addition to having worked on the business side of beauty for a dozen years as a nationally ranked sales and marketing manager.
Her natural willingness to help her friends and friends of friends in the entertainment industry was an organic progression into consulting. She never viewed others as “competition” but rather as inspiring people she could learn from. Her belief is that there is only one YOU so it’s better to focus on how you can make the most of your talent and opportunities.
Since opening The Model Consultant to the public in 2015, Annette has launched numerous models of all ages in the USA and Europe. Her services quickly expanded to include commercial actors, hosts, agencies, agents, photographers and a variety of industry professionals. Her eye for talent also positioned her as a judge for several talent and beauty competitions.
In October 2016 – after consulting Naturally Fit Agency Texas for over a year – Annette teamed up with them to open their California office which officially launched in January 2017 and quickly grew to represent the top pro athletes, Olympians, elite fit talent, media experts and influencers nationwide. Annette is now responsible for overseeing all aspects of the west coast, mid west and USA influencer agency divisions, including marketing, branding, talent and account relations, both domestic and international.
Through her unique business strategies, emphasis on teamwork and personalized honest approach, she has grown the agency revenue exponentially each year, continuously exceeding forecasts. In early 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, Annette quickly shifted focus and adapted to the new challenges with a sharper focus on influencer marketing and partnerships which resulted in close to a 100% increase over 2019!
In 2017 Annette expanded her services to Europe with a second home base in Ireland. (See the Ireland page for more information)
On the personal side: Annette is a mother of three and wife to film producer Tim O’Hair. She is very active in her community and in charity. Her deep rooted belief in helping others has provided a foundation both personally and in business. In January 2014, Annette and her eldest daughter formed Kids and Teens Care LA – La Canada with the intention of bringing like-minded, down-to-earth moms together to teach their children the importance of helping others and collaborating to find solutions to help make the world a better place. Together they all created Meals on Training Wheels providing sack lunches (assembled and delivered by the kids) to the local homeless shelter, and have helped many families and individuals in need, in addition to many fundraising events for Ronald McDonald house, Door of Hope, Operation Santa and more. Unlike most charities, they give back 100% of everything donated to those in need.
Annette’s work as a model, host and actor: Annette has booked principal roles in several dozen commercials and her commercial print work includes just about every category imaginable…automobiles, insurance, medical/dental, pharmaceuticals, food/wine, appliances, restaurants, electronics, cruises, pets, sporting goods, country clubs, amusement parks, furniture, fashion and beauty products, various magazines and more. Her hosting resume includes in-studio, red-carpet, celebrity interviews, infomercials, direct response, on-air live shopping shows and live events for a variety of clients, nationally and internationally. She also had the honor of playing one of the heroes in the Emmy nominated docudrama “The Flight That Fought Back.”
Please note: I do NOT consult fitness models in LA or Chicago through The Model Consultant.
