  • Wasn't it washable paint? You could wait until it dries and flake it off. I really wouldn't stress about paint except for the boots. Real Uggs? Ugh!!!

  • you'll probably just need to use your fingernail and 'strip' it down the length of the hair. painstaking, but otherwise, it's going to take time to wear/wash off. what kind of paint was it? usually, the stuff at school is water-based and non-toxic, right??

  • You can use a little oil and run your finger nails over it to scrap it off. I really wouldn't be that worried about it. It will eventually wash out. Usually within a few days.

  • usually they use water base paint ans should wash off if oil has to wear off red is hardest in either to get out

  • MAYBE TRY RUBBING HER HAIR WITH A LITTLE BAKING SODA? THEN WASH AGAIN THAT MIGHT WORK THE SURFACE OF THE HAIR MORE. GL.
