KO OLINA, Hawai’i – Parents can help their child or “keiki” get ready to start an epic adventure, celebrate a milestone, or swim off on their own island journey at the Waikolohe pool in style at the newly designed Painted Sky: HI Style Studio, at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa.
In this luxurious studio, boys and girls ages 3-12 can choose from a variety of magical makeover packages, which include hairstyling, makeup, costumes and accessories – all infused with hints of Hawaii and a playful sense of Disney fun. Your keiki can transform into a mermaid, or dress for an adventure across Oʻahu, or even style in the fashion of their favorite wayfinding adventurer Moana of Montunui, who happens to drop by just outside the studio from time to time to say hello. There’s even a touch of Māui, too, as the winding river rock floor path forms the shape of a hook!
Painted Sky: HI Style Studio is located in the Waiʻanae Tower, just outside of Laniwai Spa. This relaxed-yet-sophisticated luxurious new studio embraces the Hawaiian connection to nature and explores the cultural significance of the rainbows that so frequently grace the Hawaiian skyline. There is even a rainbow inside the studio through a special touch of magic and guests listening closely as they enter the studio may hear the lovely sound of an ‘ukulele strumming a familiar Disney tune.
