Frequently Asked Questions 

Face Painting:

Q. What kind of paint do you use?

A. We use the highest grade, water-based, hypoallergenic theatrical make-up on the market. This make-up is FDA approved (not just FDA compliant) to be used on all areas of the face including around the eyes and mouth. It is produced in the USA and has never been tested on animals.

Q. How do we remove the face paint?

A. Water and mild soap will remove it immediately. If you don’t have access to a sink, a baby wipe will do the trick too! The make-up will not stain any fabric, so if it gets on your clothes (or pillowcase, if you slept with it on) just throw them in the washing machine and it will come right out.

Q. You’re so fast, how did you learn how to do this?

A. Each artist has experience working in the Disney theme parks, so we’ve all had a lot of practice! We have each been through a formal training class, and painting face after face has improved or skills and time.

Q. I’ve booked you for a party, what do I need to supply for the artist?

A. Your artist will come fully self-sufficient. They will bring their own table and chair. All they will need is room to set-up (a 5’x5’ space is normally enough) if you have booked your party in the summer months, we ask that you place the artist inside if possible, or at least in a shady location outside. Please have a “rain plan” in place, as the artists are not able to perform in inclement weather, and we cannot refund your money on account of weather.

Q. Should I tip my artist?

A. You are in no way obligated to tip, but if your artist did a great job and made your event a memorable one, please feel free to show your appreciation with a gratuity.

Q. Is the deposit refundable?

A. Unfortunately we cannot refund deposits. When you pay the $25 to secure your event, we are no longer able to book that day and time and cannot guarantee that we can find a replacement for your cancelled time.

Q. I don’t think I’ve booked my artist for enough time, can I add time?

A. Yes, if you believe that you have not booked your artist for enough time, just let us know that you would like to extend your time and we’ll be happy to accommodate your request. Please be aware that there may be some events where we cannot extend the time, due to scheduling conflicts.

Unicorn Hair:

Q: What is Unicorn Hair?

A: Unicorn Hair is a sparkle strand that is fused to your natural hair, adding a special twinkle in your hair! Some people also refer to it as: glitter extensions, hair bling, fairy hair, angel hair, etc. - it's magical! 

Q: How long does it last?

A: Using the technique of fusing it to your hair strands means that it will last until that particular strand of hair falls out naturally - which could mean it lasts a day, a month, or longer! We have found that you may lose a couple within the first day, so we're always sure to add a couple of extra strands in your hair - and those are complementary :) 

Q: How should I care for my Unicorn Hair?

A: The exact same way you care for your natural hair! You can wash it, dry it, blow dry, use heat tools, cut it and dye it! 

Q: I have curly hair, will Unicorn Hair work for me?

A: Absolutely! When it's applied it will go in straight, but within a couple of days that strand will take on the aspects of your natural hair and "mimic" the strands around it. If you style your hair in any particular way, the Unicorn Hair will follow suit. 

Body Painting:

 Q. How long does the body painting take?

A. The length of time required to paint a full body varies with the design concept and number of artists booked. All the details of your painting session will be discussed at the time of booking, and our representative will happy to inform you on the approximate time needed to complete your concept.

Q. Is there an age restriction?

A. Yes, we ask that all of our body painting models be at least 18 years of age. Valid photo identification is required at the time of painting, and a waiver will be signed.

Q. Can you include my company logo in the body painting?

A. Yes, we will need a picture of your logo in JPEG format at least 2 weeks prior to the painting session in order to assure that we can produce the proper stencil.Type your paragraph here.
