Sophia comes every year to our festival, we always always try to book her. Our festival is a diverse mixture of people from all religions, ethnicities and cultures, & Sophia is excellent at treating everyone with dignity & equality. Plus her face painting skills are second to none.
Highly recommend ! ❤️❤️
Cher made my little girls birthday the best! Everyone loved having their face painted and glitter tattoos thank you!
The service received was fantastic! Thank you very much to your team, everyone had a great time and many have told me it was our best event yet. We will 100% be using you again for events in the new academic year.
Most amazing glow UV party for my wedding reception. The decorations and face painting were perfect for what I wanted. So many guests thought it was such a great night and had lots of fun. ??????❤️ xxxx
Absolutely brilliant, really friendly and with great communication. Our guests looked amazing, there was so much variety and everyone loved them Thank you!
Amazing and artistic! Brilliant service all the children were delighted with their faces and tattoos.
I would highly recommend Cher.
We were delighted with the service we received and the children on board absolutely loved it!! Plymouth Boat Trips booked Cher's Funky Faces for our Festive Santa Cruise. Will be using this professional team again for future events and highly recommend them.
Many thanks, Dave & the team at Plymouth Boat Trips ⚓
Ideal, Cher attended a community event for us, face painting nearly 60 Children! The quality of her work is outstanding!
We used Cher for my son's 3rd birthday party yesterday. I was blown away by her talents, after mentioning what characters my son was into, she prepared some faces for Paw Patrol and PJ Masks just for his party which was completely unexpected, and a great touch! All the kids looked great and my son even managed to get a little Thomas train eventually with a little persuasion and myself getting a little painted too. (He was very tired in the photo). Thanks again Cher! Would surely recommend you and use you again! You were fabulous!
Couldn't be happier - exceptional service!
We are so glad that we decided to have Cher at our daughter's 4th Birthday party. All the guests said it was an excellent idea ! The level of service is outstanding and far exceeds the rates she is charging. Cher was at the venue and set up on time. Her station is a magic box of colours and glitter! She sits you in her comfortable stylist's chair and gives you a Hollywood treatment! She is great with children and managed to build a rapport with even the youngest and the shyest guests. She had done a party of 15 children and some adults in under 2 hours. We had a unicorn-themed event, at which the Birthday girl and her sister received a unicorn horn face ornament each - both hand-made by Cher! (Even if I took the place of my 2 year-old LOL)
Cher is amazing. An absolute asset at any occasion, would recommend her for kids parties too!!!!!
This women is 100% amazing. Would recommend her to any party. Her face painting is amazing she did so many adults at our wedding. Thank you so much.
Absolutely fantastic. Better still were her works of art, one kid was heard to say 'mum I never want to wash my face again'. Everyone I spoke to had only praise for Cher. Chillington Show 2019 on 14th September 11:30 - 16:00 want her back again with the full wagon.
My twins had their faces painted today at the HMS Raleigh Open Day. They were extremely happy and love there unicorn and Minnie mouse. The two ladies had a queue of excited children all day hats off to you both!
Work at our End of Term Summer Ball. Very professional, accommodating and a great artist. Worked really well and always with a smile. Would definitely use again and highly recommend.
A very lovely team and very talented face painters.
Kids loved it! Fantastic face painting and glitter tattoos. Really talented and great value. Highly recommended!
Everyone at the event was really impressed. Cher did a fantastic job!
Very talented and great face paint artwork. Really friendly and fun with the smaller kids too so thank you... although my 5 year old flatly refuses to wash her face ready for school..he he!.
Myself and my partner chose animals (Sloth and a Giraffe) which was something out of Cher’s comfort zone, she gave it a go and she absolutely nailed them! We are chuffed to bits with the outcome and was very sad to wash it off! Very talented, very friendly and highly recommend!
Cher was fantastic she whipped through 18 children and they were all delighted - no two designs were the same and they were all thoughtfully done sympathetic to their faces and outfits.
Absolutely fantastic!!!! I hired Cher for face painting for my daughters 2nd birthday party and I’m so glad I did.
Cher was friendly, approachable, professional, funny and brilliant with the kids. Her face painting skills are exceptional, like nothing I’ve seen before.
I would recommend Cher to anyone looking for all of the above and will definitely be hiring her again in the future.
Thank you Cher xxx
Cher was brilliant, I would highly recommend her not only for kid parties but also adults events she's fun and very creative with her ideas. Great value for money!
Really good art work and every face was different.
Very talented and anything the children asked her for was not to much trouble, they all looked lovely complete with glitter and googly eyes!
Cher was very quick and efficient and all the children loved there faces . Thank you!
We worked with Cher to provide glitter artists for our clients Christmas Party.
Cher was very good at communicating and responding during the planning phase. On the day she was on time, professional and most importantly the party-goers loved the glitter! Many thanks to Cher and her team. We look forward to working with her again.
Cher was amazing, all the children and adults alike were so happy with their face painting!
OMG what a very lovely talented lady. Thank you so much for making my daughter's birthday extra special you were simply fanbloodytastic! Will deffo be back in the future and will shouting your name to my friends thankyou once again we alot if happy children xx
Absolutely amazing evening made complete by Cher. The kids and adults loved it. I can’t thank you enough. Definitely recommend Cher's Funky Faces to everyone xxxx
Having Cher at our event proved invaluable and she occupied approximately 20-30 children with her face painting. She has brilliant artist skills and had a queue of children waiting. She worked constantly during two hours (without a break) and even stayed an extra half hour. I noticed that some of the children still have their painted faces on the next day as they were so proud of them. I would highly recommend her and intend to invite her again next year to our event.
Cher made the beginning of our night so fun and did an absolutely amazing job on all of us! We were all so pleased with the end results and it lasted all night!! What a talented and lovely lady, highly recommend! We will definitely be booking again!
Immensely talented and experienced face painter for all occasions, highly recommended!
Having used Funky Punky for face painting at our events and festivals for the past couple of years, they were the first point of call when friends suggested to me I should have my baby bump painted. After forwarding over some ideas for designs, Cher kindly came to my home and painted my bump freehand, discussing her ideas with me as she went along. Cher made me feel very comfortable, as I am not one to usually have much flesh on display! It was nice to put my feet up and be pampered and baby seemed to be enjoying it too! I can’t express how happy my husband and I were with the final product. Everything was just as I’d hoped and more. The intricate detail showed immense talent and I was so sad to have to wash the gorgeous teddy painting off that evening. Thank goodness we had taken lots of photos to share with friends and family. As our baby's name was also painted on the design, it was also the perfect opportunity to announce our choice for his first name on social media. Which received an amazing response! I would highly recommend this service to anyone. Such a lovely experience which I would certainly do again.
...it's out of this world the way you create the most perfect designs free style you honestly have real talent!!
I highly recommend Cher's Funky Faces and will tell everyone about this amazing lady and what she does. She has amazing, creative, fun and funky designs that never fail to wow her customers, the work she does is incredible and she is very dedicated to her job. We love it when Cher comes to Somerset, she never fails to make you laugh. You can see in her high quality designs how much time and effort has been put in to her work. She is fantastic with children and loves to make them smile. She is really friendly and easy to talk to, fun and kind hearted. Couldn't find a friendlier person. If you are looking for high quality Cher's Funky Faces is the way to go, you won't be disappointed
Absolutely lovely lady, amazing braiding and face painting....we always go back year after year....absolutely fantastic with children xx
Cher's Funky Faces are superb. Just give her an idea of what you want or show her a picture and she is able create what you want perfectly. I have had my face painted by her on several occasions and she has always done a fab job. Very unique and talented. She also does funky hair braids and feathers ....I had some feathers put in my hair over 7 weeks ago and they are still in and looking funky as! She also comes armed with glitter in every colour... come on boys get your beards razzle dazzled!! Can't recommend her enough! 10/10
Extremely talented lady. I have never seen a festival sparkle so much!
Cher is an amazing talented artists with great vision. Loved my painting!
We use Cher's Funky Faces lots for special nights run at our bar/club. Always great service and absolutely great facepainting skills . Would definitely recommend.
Excellent arty skills aplenty and a very lovely fun lady too.
Today Cher did my daughter's 6th birthday party face painting. Everyone had a fantastic time at the party and was made extra special with an amazing face painter that Cher is! I highly recommend Cher's Funky Faces and will tell everyone about this amazing lady and what she does. All the children and parents thought she was amazing at what she does, thanks again Cher's Funky Faces
Me and my partner were extremely happy with our face paint. She is really friendly and easy to talk to.We definitely recommend Cher to anyone. x
Lovely friendly lady, who is amazing at what she does. Would recommend to everyone to book her you will be a very satisfied customer. She recently done an awesome bump painting of the Cheshire Cat for my sister and it was fab!
Thank you so much for your amazing job at my nieces 8th birthday. The hair braids and glitter tattoos were fab and an absolute hit with the girls and doing 16 in such a short time is no mean feat! Your patience and interaction with the children was also excellent. I cannot recommend you highly enough! X
Really good design techniques, fantastic work really like your face paints, uv style, glitter tattoos, hair braids and lots more love it absolutely brilliant work.
Amazing visual effects, professional and helpful. Highly recommended.
Very good work. Hired for two events over the weekend and could have not asked for a better service. Thank you Cher.
Thanks so much for my new feather hairstyle Cher it's awesome, I love it! Getting lots of compliments! Xx
On all levels having my baby bump painted was a beautiful experience, I hadn't considered it before Cher suggested she paint it but it is now one of my favorite moments of pregnancy so far. Much gratitude to you Cher - Thank you.
I loved it because it felt like a celebration of my pregnancy and a way to mark this time in my life with something unique.
Giving special attention to the changing shape of my body that is making room for a new life rather than shying away from it was such a healthy thing to do. Instead of becoming frustrated with this basketball belly that inhibits my usual movements and stressing that nothing fits anymore, by painting my bump Cher opened the door for me to give it the much healthier and special recognition it actually deserves for a change! I am now embracing my bump!
Chers stayed patient with me the whole time she was painting, despite my moving and laughing with inquisitive passers-by which could potentially jog her paintbrush and annoyingly having to run off to the toilet every 2 seconds. Chers imagination and impressively steady hand managed to capture the connection I feel with my baby at this stage of my pregnancy, creating an amazing visual representation of it that I could share and admire with people during that day. I had my bump painted in the street and everyone was admiring the artwork and wishing me well for the future. It was sooooo lovely. I'm certain India-Rei enjoyed the attention and feeling of the paintbrush tracing my belly. I have taken lots of photos so that she can experience it from the other side once she arrives.
As you can probably guess I will be shouting loud about baby bump painting to all my future pregger friends out there and recommending Cher for her awesome talent. I want to see more pregnant bellies being decorated and embraced, actually lets just paint everything, pregnant bellies, beer bellies, full body......MORE COLOUR ......
I’ll highly recommend Cher, great attitude for kids or adults and a true artist able to freehand any design. I met her a couple of years ago and am highly demanding with me being ultra awkward with a complex custom design and not sitting still
Cher was amazing I loved every minute of the party definitely will be recommending
Cher is a fantastic artist! Just give her a little idea, and she paints the most amazing designs with a personal touch, super talented. Thanks Cher! x
Thank you for the braids today - very happy girlies!
Just wanted to let you know how amazing Sophia was yesterday! She was completely brilliant and did so many faces it was unreal! It was a fabulous day! Thank you so so much...
Absolutely brilliant very talented lady! The kids loved it. Thank you :)
The amazing work you did for my daughter's 13th glow party/disco was just out of this world, every single person loved it. Definitely a party to remember, according to my daughters friends THE BEST party they have ever been to! Thank you Funky Punky!
Love our hair braids, this lovely lady made for us on our holiday! Thank you!
Cher is the most friendly lady ever! Every year since I was about 4 she's been doing my hair braids! Fun, friendly and always so chatty! Thank you for all of my braids Cher! Xxx
Excellent, well organised, the place looked amazing when finished! Very creative and will definitely use again.
Funky Punky to transformed the pub into something fantastic. The backdrops are amazing, the lighting and sound superb. Couldn't stop looking at it all night as couldn't believe how a normal pub could be turned into what it was turned into, 100% recommend your work! Very professionally done, thumbs up from me :)
Amazing. Couldn't of been organised any better for my 23rd Birthday. Highly recommended. Funky Punky turns it into something very magical. Thank you Cher!
Thank you for the (Swamp Thing) face painting you did for my little ones today at Southwest Autosport.
Super duper fabulously fantastic fun from the talented and amazing Cher Ricard! Big ups and high fives all round!
My little girl loved her face painted by these lovely people today at Modified Mania. Thank you x
Cher thank you so much for keeping the kids entertained at our wedding, they all had a great time and are still talking about it two weeks later xxxx
"Cher is absolutely amazing, talented and such a lovely person! Her face painting work at Plymouth Flavour Fest was incredible!"
You guys make the show and I am grateful for you attending, Hope to see you back...
The most amazing face and body painter I've ever seen, and hair braiding is fab too, you guys need to book this lady up asap!
Funky Punky brands the venue or festival she inhabits, thus creating a warmer happier atmosphere.
Cher is a magnificent host and entrepreneur. Cher is innovative in her business practice buying and selling, a dab hand artist and makeup artist. Cher truly brings colours to your venue, like the film Avatar all glowing away in harmony
"Peek-a-boo I love it. It was so relaxing, every pregnant woman should get their bump painted!"
Thank you for attending the Plymouth Volksfest. I must say that the service you provided was not only outstanding but truly value for money. The Volksfest team and the East End Development Trusts Sutton Play project have engaged with dozens of face painters over the last 12 years or so but none have come close to your level of skill and patience with children. You should be proud of yourself and we wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone wishing to engage a professional face painter.
Poppie loved her first face paint! Lovely lady & brilliant with all the children, would definitely recommend to anyone looking at booking for a party :) xx
Your stall was an amazing addition to the event and the face painting went down a treat. The queue was never ending, my only disappointment was that I didn't get a chance to get painted myself. You have helped to raise a considerable amount for the Brain Research Trust and I cannot thank you enough.
We will be holding another event in 2013 and I hope that you will be able to attend. We all look forward to seeing you again soon.

Lily having a drink, all chilled out after her hair braiding (where she nearly fell asleep) Thank you Cher, she loves it!
Funky Punky provided face painting and hair braiding for a Community event that I organised on behalf of Plymouth University. Cher Ricard was quick to respond to initial enquiries and provided a great service – she had a large queue from the moment she set up to the moment the event ended with very happy customers! I would certainly use her again
You were truly amazing! On the day you were professional, polite and had fantastic interaction with the participants. We all thought the face paints looked great. We would definitely not hesitate to recommend you to other businesses in the future.
