HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY WEDDING DATE, FOR MAKEUP AND HAIR SERVICES?
Weddings can be booked up to a year in advance, and no later than 3 months to ensure your date. However, if you have a late booking or last minute change of plans, we have a large #glamSquad on staff ready to serve you, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK FOR MY MAKEUP AND HAIR TRIAL?
We recommend trials to be booked no more than 4-6 weeks in advance. Booking your trial on a special day like a bridal shower, engagement shoot or bachelorette party. After your styling session, your trial can be taken down and you can do something as simple as changing your lip shade to transform your look.
HOW SHOULD THE BRIDE & ATTENDANTS PREPARE OUR HAIR AND SKIN FOR ALL BRIDAL SERVICES?
We love for our brides and her attendants hair to be clean and completely dry for all trials and day of services. (each persons version of "clean" is different, use the "1 day dirty method")
HOW LONG DOES A TRIAL RUN LAST?
WHAT SHOULD THE BRIDE BRING WITH HER TO THE TRIAL TOBESIDES BRINGING IN MY HEADPIECE AND VEIL TO THE TRIAL RUN, DO I NEED ANYTHING ELSE?
The bride should bring her headpiece, veil, any jewerly or accessories you'd like your stylists to see, Pinterest or inspiration photos, lipstick/stain options you may be set on, your best girl friend or mom to help with recommendations on your looks.
CAN I EMAIL MY INSPIRATION PHOTOS BEFORE MY TRIAL?
Yes! We actually recommend this!
WILL THE ARTIST AT MY TRIAL BE THE SAME ARTIST FOR MY WEDDING DAY?
Absolutely! The Utopia #glamSquad believes that the purpose of your trial is to tryout looks and products with the stylists that will be working with you on your wedding day.
WHAT IF I'M INTERESTED IN EXTENSIONS FOR LENGTH OR VOLUME?
We recommend clip-in extensions to best achieve your desired look. Your hair stylist can color match you at your trial and make recommendations.
HOW DO I BOOK BRIDAL SERVICES?
All of our bridal service bookings are treated with a little extra TLC. Please contact our Bridal Director directly at our Bridal Email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our 'Book Your Wedding' tab on our Website and submit the proper form.
WHY IS THE BRIDE’S HAIR & MAKEUP MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THE BRIDAL PARTY?
From the very first point of contact more time and attention is spent with the bride. We allot an extended amount of time on the date of the trial, this will allow for multiple looks if requested. On the day of your wedding, you as the bride are top priority and our care and dedication is second to none. We do not do a la carte pricing for veil and hairpiece placement.
IS THERE A DEPOSIT REQUIRED TO BOOK MY WEDDING?
Yes. We require a 50% deposit that is refundable should you choose to cancel your party within 60 days of your wedding day.
CAN MY BRIDAL PARTY ADD ANY ADDITIONAL SERVICES THE DAY OF?
We are more than willing to accomodate any last minute bookings the day of the wedding. To ensure everyone receives the services they would like in the time frame alloted, we highly recommend being included into the contract prior to.
DO I NEED TO KNOW THE EXACT NUMBER OF ATTENDANTS BEFORE I SIGN THE CONTRACT?
No. We recommend to have as close of a number as you possibly can. As soon as we get your request, we start to lay out your wedding day and time frame. If you have someone who would like to add on to the contract later on, we can always try to accomodate.
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE DIFFERENT HAIR TYPES & SKIN COLORS?
Yes. For photos, please visit out photo gallery and our Instagram @bridalbtutopiahawleypa
BEFORE I COMMIT TO A TRIAL CAN I VISIT YOU FOR A CONSULTATION?
We offer two different types of consultations.
CAN EVERYONE IN THE PARTY PAY SEPARATELY?
Unforunately, no. We will take two payments from the credit card on file. We recommend the bride to collect funds from her attendants in advance.
IS GRATUITY INCLUDED IN BRIDAL SERVICES?
YES. A 20% GRATUITY HAS BEEN ADDED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TIP ADDITIONAL DAY OF, IT IS MOST APPRECIATED BUT NEVER EXPECTED.
WHERE CAN I SEE A GALLERY OF BRIDAL PHOTOS ?
Please visit out photo gallery on our website as well as our Instagram @bridalbyutopiahawleypa. Here you will find photos and information uploaded frequently.
Utopia's team from day one were so accommodating and enjoyable to work with. I am so hapy I decided to use them for my hair and makeup for my wedding. I decided to do off location services and they arrived at my Airbnb early and ready to go! All the girls were fantastic, they even nice enough to add on some unexpected day of services for a few more people and did it with ease. All the girls looked so beautiful! Anna is the absolute best! She was like working with a close friend and made the day absolutely perfect. She followed my trial and requests exactly and I had all trust she would make me look absolutely beautiful.
Thank you again to the entire team for making us all feel and look flawless!

Four ladies traveled to our venue to do our hair and makeup and let me tell you, they did not disappoint! My matron of honor didn't have a hairstyle picked out and said do whatever you'd like and let me tell you she knocked it out of the park and the MOH even said she felt beautiful! They wer all super kind, friendly, timely and just all around awesome. Ms Cyndi made me feel the absolute most beautiful I have ever felt in my entire life! Thank you ladies!
