At Painted Sky, you can help your child (or “keiki,” as kids are known in Hawaii) to get ready for their next epic adventure with a total Hawaiian makeover. Celebrating a milestone? Heading off on a resort island journey at the Waikolohe pool? Going for a scenic ocean cruise on a dolphin watching catamaran? No matter what adventures you may have in store for your kids, they can do it in style at the newly designed Painted Sky: HI Style Studio, at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa.

Painted Sky is a luxurious studio located onsite at Aulani. Boys and girls aged three to 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. This is Painted Sky as a unisex version of the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Your keiki can transform into a mermaid, or dress for any adventure across Oʻahu. They can even style themselves in the fashion of their favorite wayfinding adventurer Moana of Montunui — who may just happen to drop by the studio from time to time to say hello(!)

So keep your wits about you. Keen-eyed guests will notice that there’s a touch of Māui at Painted Sky as well, as the winding river rock floor path forms the shape of his famous hook.

Where to Find Painted Sky at Aulani

Painted Sky: HI Style Studio is located in the Waiʻanae Tower, just outside of Laniwai Spa.

Disney Imagineers paid attention to detail here as well, as there is even a rainbow inside the studio through a special touch of magic. Here’s another tip: be sure to listen closely as you enter the studio — you may just hear the lovely sound of an ‘ukulele strumming a familiar Disney song.
