The Rockettes are the picture of perfect uniformity, with every long leg kicking in time with the next. There's even a strict height requirement: Every dancer must be between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall.

Yet two dancers from the legendary dance company recently told HuffPost Live that there is room for individuality in a way we'd never expect: The dancers are responsible for their own hair and makeup.

"We do our own hair and makeup for every show," said Christine Walsh Warren, "because we know ourselves the best!" Color us thoroughly impressed. Now we can add the Rockettes to the list of glamorous performers you never knew did their own makeup along with Miss American contestants and professional ballerinas.

Watch a clip of the Rockettes interview above and catch the full segment on HuffPost Live.
