Makeup

All dancers are required to arrive with their makeup applied according to the following guidelines except for lipstick, which staff will apply in the dressing room.  Please send makeup in a clearly marked bag with your dancer in case touch-ups are required.

Party Boys

  • Powder (loose or pressed): Use a color that matches your dancer’s skin tone. This is used so that dancers don’t look “shiny”.
  • Eyeshadow: No eyeshadow
  • Blush: Use a warm, rosy color and use sparingly. Avoid orange & brown tones! Apply to cheeks and cheekbones.
  • Lipstick: Use a natural color that matches dancer’s lip color.  No reds/hot pinks, dark browns, peach/orange, or frosty colors.

Party Girls

  • Powder (loose or pressed): Use a color that matches your dancer’s skin tone. This is used so that dancers don’t look “shiny”.
  • Eyeshadow: Use a soft neutral color on lids.
  • Blush: Use a pinky/rosy color. Avoid orange & brown tones! Apply to cheeks and cheekbones.
  • Lipstick: Use dark pink/rose. No pale colors, browns, peach, or frosty colors.

 PLEASE NOTE:  NO JEWELRY, NO BODY GLITTER, NO NAIL POLISH

Hairstyle

Party Boys

Our Party Boys wear “boy-looking” wigs, as does our Fritz.  Here are some pictures to give you an idea of what this looks like. CCB will provide individual wigs for each Party Boy.  No dancers will share wigs. 

Party Boys (and Fritz) will need to wear their hair smooth and close to their head (in a very flat, low bun or French braid that is pinned down to head tightly under the wig cap).

Here is a pic of how you can braid and secure the hair under the wig:

Party Girls

Party Girls will either wear a hairpiece or two French braids. We prefer to have a variety of styles, and are providing pictures to give you a general idea of what they look like, and recommending locations for purchase. If you are able to find another location that carries the hairpiece you want, feel free to purchase it there. We would only ask that you take a look at these links ahead of time so that you know what to look for.

SPECIAL NOTE: Once you have purchased your dancer's hairpiece we will need to approve it. Please bring it into the studio and see Laurel or Wendy for approval. Once your dancer's hairpiece has been approved, we will keep it with their costume until after the final performance, at which time it will be returned to you.
