The Best Face Painting in Santa Barbara!
Welcome to Santa Barbara Face Painting and Henna! I am available for face painting and henna anywhere in Santa Barbara County, and can travel further if needed! Hire me for children’s birthday parties, corporate events, school festivals, or by appointment. I can do theme parties, Halloween costumes, sweet sixteen celebrations, Quinceañeras, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs… any kind of event! I have been face painting professionally since 2008. I am creative, a fast painter, and my clients say it’s the best face painting they’ve ever seen!
I have a team of amazing artists, and we don’t ONLY do face painting! We also do all natural henna tattoos, balloon twisting, giant bubbles and more. We can do all of it wearing beautiful costumes! We especially love to dress up as your favorite princess!

Henna Body Art
Try a face painting and henna party! There is something for everybody. The kids can get their faces painted, and the teenagers and adults can do henna. My henna is all natural, and lasts 2-3 weeks on your hands and feet. Henna is safe for people of all ages. Henna paste is made out of powered henna leaves, lemon juice, and sugar. I draw it on with a henna cone, which is like a frosting cone. You keep it on for 2-4 hours, and magic! You have a safe, temporary “tattoo”. Henna is a beautiful red-brown color. See pictures of my henna!
Jagua and “White” Henna
If you want more realistic looking tattoos, I have other options! Temptu is the body paint that movie stars use to make fake, temporary tattoos. It comes in every color and lasts several days. Jagua is made from the south american jagua fruit. Jagua only stains black, but lasts 2-3 weeks, as long as henna. Never use black henna, it can be toxic. My henna and Jagua are all natural.
You might have seen pictures of white henna online! This is actually white body paint, such as Temptu. We can do any henna design in white, and it will last several days. We can also do any other color of the rainbow, including gold and silver!
Balloon Twisting and Giant Bubbles
Looking for balloon artists? We can also do balloon twisting. We make balloon animals, swords, flowers, and more. Balloon twisting is a great companion to face painting.
Also, you might have seen those giant bubbles around town! These are becoming popular for birthday parties, and of course we added our own twist with our Bubble Mermaid Party Package! You can have face painting, giant bubbles, and your very own mermaid (or pirate!).
Kids Party Crafts
Arts and crafts are a fun, creative addition to any birthday party, but they can be a mess and a hassle. Let us organize your kids party crafts for you! We can customize for any age or theme. For the little kids, we can help them make their own crowns or wands. We can do a custom coloring station with birthday messages or images that go with your theme, or even make cards! We can do jewelry and painting projects for any age. For the older kids, we can do a do-it-yourself henna party where they learn all about henna and how to apply it themselves!
