Renee Stewart is following in her famous mum Rachel Hunter's footsteps into the world of modelling.

The supermodel and her 17-year-old daughter by British pop musician Rod Stewart have been signed up to promote global hair care brand Pantene in New Zealand and Australia.

"I'm thrilled to be working with Pantene again," said Hunter who promoted the product in the 90s.

"Now I get the added bonus of sharing the experience with my beautiful daughter."

It will be 17-year-old Renee Stewart's first professional assignment.
