Host a Hair and Makeup Seminar for Competitive Dancers at Your Studio

hair and makeup

The hair and make-up process for dancers, especially competitive dancers, can be daunting. To help parents and dancers understand the process of creating a particular hair and make-up “look”, host a hair and makeup seminar where parents and children can go through the process.

That way, they can go through the motions step-by-step, in a practice environment.

We host our seminar in mid-to-late January. Before the seminar, we email out a list that includes all of the supplies required for hair, make-up, tights, and shoes.

At the seminar, we go through the process of:

  1. Styling Hair (detailed to the location of the part)
  2. Applying Make-Up Properly (and using the proper colors, and in what order)
  3. Applying False Eyelashes
  4. Checking for Correct Colors of Tights/Shoes, to match with the rest of the costume

This makes EVERYONE feel more prepared for the dress rehearsal prior to the first competition, and, at competition, everyone feels more at ease and prepared.

For some help on explaining important makeup tips, check out our articles on dance competition makeup:

You can also share our Dance Parents Competition Survival Guide so parents can get a head start on getting the right materials to make it through a busy competition weekend!
