The Model Consultant Ireland

Hi! My name is Annette Dominguez-O’Hair.  After consulting privately for many years in Los Angeles, I opened my services to the public as The Model Consultant in 2015. I provide honest advice and help to guide the careers of models, actors and entertainment professionals nationwide and internationally. In July, 2017, I connected and partnered with Sharon Hennessy to offer my services in Dublin, Ireland. My grandmother was born and raised in Ireland and her homeland always remained in her heart. My family and I have also fallen in love with Ireland and as an Irish citizen I hope to spend more time here. Click here to read the article on the Ireland Launch!

I have over 25 years experience on the talent, creative and business side of the entertainment and fashion industries. I have over 14 years experience working as a commercial print model, commercial actress and on-camera host, in addition to having worked on the business side of the beauty biz for a dozen years as a nationally recognized top producing sales & marketing manager. I am also the U.S.A. West Coast Director for Naturally Fit Agency helping to groom and train pro athletes and elite fitness talent for the commercial world. I am dedicated to helping my clients to succeed in exploring their talents and reaching their dreams….
