Are you ready to "Prepare For Battle"?
If you think you're interested, just fill out the information below. Disclaimer: Should we move forward with offering a contract, there will be a $50 contracting fee charged to the artisan.
Would you like own a WarPaint International Franchise?
Are there professional requirements?
You must be a professionally educated or tranined makeup artist, hair stylist, or cosmotologist according to your state guidelines.
Do I need to be certified?
Not necessarily. It will depend in large part on what services you are freelancing for (ex. TV production versus wedding and event), and then it will also depend on which state you are located and operating in. WarPaint International is a legally registered LLC, operating as a beauty agency in Minneapolis, MN, providing services to a wide variety of clients. We do not operate a brick and mortar salon space or employ cosmetologists for regulated cosmetology or Advanced Practice services. If you have questions about the services you intend to provide, you should refer to the Board of Cosmetology in your state and consult your attorney.
Do I need insurance?
Yes. WarPaint Artisans are all insured for liability in the event an accident were to happen. We are a mobile agency, operating in other people's homes, work spaces, or venues. Should you choose not to carry liability insurance to protect your own assets, WarPaint International will require you to sign a waiver form releasing it from any legal action that may arise due to your negligence or accidental harm to a WarPaint client.
Do I need to have a portfolio?
In short - Yes. However, many artists work in editorial and corporate environments and do not own the rights to their work. Should you not have a website, online portfolio, or other showcase of work, you must be able to show credit of your work in professional applications, proof of a beauty education, and / or demonstrate your ability to help WarPaint clients "Prepare For Battle".
Do I need to own transportation?
Yes. Our clients are "on-location", as will you be. Owning transportation or having a secured and reliable form of getting from point A to point B is required.
Do I have to sign a contract?
Yes. WarPaint Artisans represent our brand. By contracting with WarPaint International you agree to maintain an online calendar for accuracy, wear the WarPaint brand T-shirt to all appointments and to refrain from cross-promotion your (or other businesses) while working with WarPaint clients. You are employed under a freelance contract and paid by the job. We reserve the right to terminate our agreement at any time. We also reserve the right to pursue legal action against you, should you violate the terms of your contract maliciously.
Do I have to supply my own kit?
Yes. As with all freelance opportunities, you are self-employed. WarPaint international expects you to represent its brand and your talent by presenting a professional image with an organized kit of professional supplies. Please inquire if you are uncertain which supplies may meet the requirements.
Will you do a background check on me?
Yes. Our customers' privacy and safety is very important to us, as well as the safety of our artists. We will not knowingly send a convicted criminal or individual with a backgroud of abuse, arrests, or other misdemeanors into our client's homes. If you are unwilling to have a background check processed or are unsure about its outcome, a partnership with WarPaint International may not be the right fit for either party.
When should I expect to hear back?
It is our goal to respond to everyone. If you don't hear from us within a week, please be patient. If you feel that we have overlooked your inquiry, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
