There are certain circumstances and situations where we will not be able to work on a particular child or adult for health and safety reasons. It is important for us to maintain protection to our public and staff. We hope that you will trust our judgment knowing that we wish to ensure the protection of each and every one of our customers and also our products.

Carols Colours maintain a good work ethic, a high standard of work with quality staff, professional products and follow a strict code of practice. We will arrive at your venue ready to perform the services engaged, fully equipped and insured. We hold £5m Public Liability Insurance. We can provide a copy of this to you upon request, at the time of booking, if required.

The professional make-up products, airbrush make up, temporary tattoo ink, glitters and glue, are all approved for use on the skin.
