Meet the Miranda Kerr of the hand modelling world and his glorious contemporaries.

You’ve seen their impossibly perfect hands before but never their faces. Until now.

Introducing the world’s top hand models.

These are the people behind all those beautiful hands you see on every ad and billboard. In fact some of those hands are insured for mind-blowing, seven-figure sums.

They star in major, global ad campaigns and are known as the supermodels of the hand modelling world. And these headshots of the Hired Hands agency’s top hand models offer a fascinating glimpse into the curious, little-known world of hand modelling.

For Federico Hewson, hand modelling has always been the family business. As the owner of stunning hands and with his father and uncle also working in the industry, his career path was never in doubt.

And his stunning hands.

Some, like Delphine Jean-Gilles, didn’t even know hand modelling was a career until they discovered it by accident.

She told The Guardian:

People used to say, “Look at those hands – you should play the piano.” I didn’t know hand modelling was a thing until I saw a commercial and thought, I could do that.

Others, like Vincent Oliver, like to have a sense of humour when it comes to their unorthodox career:

Vincent’s face…
Vincent’s perfect hand.

My friends think it’s the funniest thing ever. I’m introduced as “the hand model” and they really love it… I do look after my hands, but it doesn’t limit my life.

For some though, their talent seems to be wasted on hand modelling. Check out Adnan Rashed’s gorgeous, luscious moustache, for example:

That moustache…

Who knew hand modelling was an actual, serious career?

Now excuse us while we go get a manicure and some hand moisturiser…
