If you’re interested in toddler pageants and child pageants, you probably have a lot of questions. I hope to answer at least one of those questions for you here. It has to do with the different types of toddler pageants, namely “face pageants.”
Pageantry can get pretty mind boggling for beginners. In fact, the hobby can sometimes be confusing even for more experienced pageant parents. It’s not so much that the rules are constantly changing – it’s that every individual pageant and every pageant director might follow a slightly different set of rules and guidelines.
The major difference among toddler pageants is the specific type of pageant they might be. One type is a face pageant. Many parents like entering their boys and girls in face pageants because no expensive pageant outfits are required, and the little girls don’t have to be tanned, wear makeup, wear flippers, or sport elaborate hair styles. In fact, most face pageants don’t even allow these embellishments. The child just has to look neat.
In typical face pageants, the judges are pretty much looking for just one thing: the child’s natural beauty. And yes, little boys can be beautiful, too! In most cases, poise and personality are not taken into account, either.
