  • Judges will receive a copy of your head shot.

  • Photo must be current and reflect the actual age of contestant.

  • Age appropriate make-up and natural hair extensions are allowed in photographs for all age divisions.

Hair & Make-Up Guidelines

Natural hair extensions are allowed in all age divisions.  Absolutely NO GLITZ!  Even though we allow make-up in all divisions, we are looking for contestants to showcase their natural beauty.  Please use make-up to highlight your "look" and not change it!  Jr Princess & Princess contestants need to keep make-up minimal.    

ALL STAGE EVENTS

  • Jr Princess & Princess:  Light make-up.  Only wear enough make-up to highlight you under harsh stage lights.  Please keep it minimal and age appropriate!

  • Pre-Teen, Jr Teen, Teen, Miss & Ms.:  No make-up restrictions for stage events.

  • Runway Model Category, however, will have different hair and make-up guidelines from all other stage events.   The Runway Model category will showcase natural beauty by keeping it simple.  Fresh face and hair in a slicked back ponytail.  Contestants with short hair will need to style hair away from face.  Petite division - no make up.  All other divisions - concealer, light powder, natural lipstick and mascara.

PAGEANT INTERVIEW

  • Jr Princess & Princess:  Light powder, hint of blush & lip gloss.  The judges should not notice your make-up!  Light make-up is allowed to smooth skin, cover a blemish and/or add a hint of color.  That's it!

  • Pre-Teen, Jr Teen, Teen, Miss & Ms.:  Light to moderate make-up, depending on the age group.  The younger you are, the less make-up you should wear.  Keep your "look" natural and do not wear heavy stage make-up in any age group.  Please make sure the judges notice YOU before they notice your make-up!

COMMERCIAL & PHOTO/PRINT

  • We allow make-up in all age divisions for commercial & photo/print.  We cannot stress enough that make-up needs to compliment the contestant and be age appropriate.  We suggest light-moderate make-up in all age groups.

General Guidelines

BALLROOM ETIQUETTE

  • Enter and exit ballroom in between acts.

  • Silence cellphones at all times.

DRESSING ROOM POLICY
