Key West, FL (PRUnderground) October 14th, 2019

Hollywood celebrity make-up artist Ron Wolek of Wolek Studios returns to Key West’s October Fantasy Fest 2019 to debut The Beauty Garden next to Fairvilla Sexy Things. Known fondly as ‘Captain Ron Wolek’ among his many Key West fans, Wolek and his talented crew of make-up, hair and body painting designers from television, film and stage have created their own enchanting pop-up Beauty Garden (Oct. 20 – 26) to offer visitors a unique and elevated painting experience as they ‘glam up’ to steal the show during the Festival.

More than 70,000 visitors are expected to attend this year’s Fantasy Fest on the island city, and Wolek and his epic crew are determined to provide as many of those people excellent customer service and extremely competitive prices while in their Garden of Eden-inspired The Beauty Garden. “Body painting is an art,” remarks Wolek. “It requires precision and perfection, and is artistically beautiful when done on the body, an exquisite human canvas.”

Wolek has painted at the annual Fantasy Fest for the last two years and was motivated to create The Beauty Garden because he felt clients needed to receive more of a “celebrity treatment” from artists and painters at the annual event. And that’s exactly what the guests in his Garden will get: individualized highest-level artistry in a relaxing and beautiful environment. 

“For me, it wasn’t about how many people I could get in the chair and paint in one day. It was about delivering a positive, exceptional experience and interaction with each and every person,” continued Wolek. “I want our customers to walk into The Beauty Garden as ordinary people and walk out feeling glamorous, gorgeous, extraordinary, just like a Hollywood star! My goal is to make it meaningful, to help people fulfill their fantasies, make their dreams come true through the form of art.”

The Beauty Garden’s targeted audience is women over the age of 35, but any age, gender or body type will receive the same special experience and fabulous results as only Hollywood artists are accustomed to providing. “What makes The Beauty Garden’s art unique is that we don’t duplicate the work of others. We allow ourselves to trust our creativity, embrace it, and own it. We challenge ourselves to work on and create our unique styles, not wanting to be like someone else. Bottom line, The Beauty Garden artists pride themselves on customized – not cookie cutter – artistry.”

Home for Wolek’s Beauty Garden is the lot next to Fairvilla Sexy Things, a popular destination for costumes and makeup, at 524 Front Street. Capt Ron Hollywood Beauty Art is an official Life of the Party partner of Fantasy Fest 2019.


Ron Wolek is a third generation hair stylist, veteran make-up artist, and son of Disney’s former hair and make-up legend and department head, Janet Wolek. He is currently an educator and body design artist at E.I. School of Professional Make-Up in Hollywood, California, and a moustache maker at Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, working on some of the biggest celebrities of their time.

Wolek is best known for his work on The Right Stuff (2020), Stranger Things (2016), The Walking Dead (2010), and The Vampire Diaries (2009). He has worked on numerous TV series, made-for-TV-movies, TV specials, documentaries, theatrical productions, and big-budget features as either make-up department head, key hair stylist, wigmaker or special effects.

From 2007-2011, Wolek became the youngest department head for hair and make-up at California’s Disneyland Resort, which had become the second largest wig department in America.  In that executive role, he supervised over 60 union hair and makeup artists at Disneyland Theme Park, Disney California Adventure, Downtown Disney, and at the classic, audio animatronics attractions, such as Pirates of the Caribbean, The Mark Twain River Boat, The Haunted Mansion, and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. During this period, Wolek’s mother Janet simultaneously managed the hair and make-up department at the east coast’s Disney World at the Magic Kingdom. The Woleks partnered together as department head for several variations of the Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade TV specials aired on ABC on Christmas Day.

Following in his mother’s footsteps in the beauty field, Wolek is respected as one of the nation’s top make-up and hair designers and special effects artists who transforms ordinary people into Santa Claus with realistic-looking, top-notch beards, moustaches and excellent make-up composition. Wolek is the author of “Santa Claus Make-Up: How to Look Like Santa Claus, Father Christmas, and Kris Kringle” and “Become Santa Claus, How to Turn Your Beard White: A Field Guide of Secrets for a Real Bearded Santa Claus”.
