Tips for the Best Experience

Follow these tips to make the most of your boutique visit:

  • Arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Timeliness is important.
  • Come with clean hair free of knots, tangles, or products. It helps the styling process go smoothly.

  • Stay in character during and after. It helps build excitement.
  • Schedule makeovers in the morning or early afternoon. Avoid late day when kids get tired.
