There have been several inquiries regarding hair/make-up artists. Hopefully this info will help.
Each contestant is given one back stage pass. That may be used for a hairdresser/make-up artist or a mom/sister. It is up to the contestant where that pass goes. Only females will be allowed in dressing rooms with contestants.
Hairdressers will be in their own room so they can be male or female. They should bring a mirror and their table. They can bring a power strip if they want.
****IF YOU ARE USING A HAIRDRESSER/MAKE-UP ARTIST, PLEASE GIVE US THEIR NAME SO THAT WE KNOW HOW MANY FOR WHICH TO PREPARE***
Hairdressers will need a ticket if they want to watch pageant. We cannot allow any viewing from backstage. It does not work logistically.
Morning rehearsals end at noon. Therefore, we will allow hairdressers in at 11 to set up in their back room.
