We're looking for a fun, femenine, lightweight logo that captures the idea of "professors" teaching girls how to compete in beauty pageants. Ideally, the logo is based around a caricature / cartoon professor girl.
Target demographic is teenage females and young adult women. The Pageant Professors girls like the cartoon stylized girl with the chalkboard (sample attached), although I think that design can be done better. They also really like the look / feel of the Photoshop Lady logo, although that logo doesn't incorporate the themes they're looking for.
The Rue Lala stylized font that is attached is great and is along the lines of what the girls like - it's feminine, modern, lightweight, and isn't "too fancy." (RueLala does womens' fashion sales).
The main idea is to be simple, lightweight, feminine, and convey the professor / teacher theme. Chalkboards / crowns / evening gowns / sashes are all good.
Things to stay away from are tons of stars / glitter (small amounts ok) and the color pink (also ok in small amounts).
