Hair and Make-Up Artist Info

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 as to how they want to use that pass. 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.


Hairdressers will need a ticket if they want to watch the 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.


Interviews will begin at 2:30. They will be private with judges, standing with no podium which is the same format that nationals uses. We will begin with the Junior High division.

See you Saturday!

If you have one, send us the date of your High School Pageant and we will post it on our events calendar !
