Bridal FAQs

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") Please arrive with a clean face and only moisturize your skin prior to your service. We recommend to have a fresh brow/ lip wax, facials, sheet masks. This will allow your makeup to go on smoother. Please visit, our service menu to book.




HOW LONG DOES A TRIAL RUN LAST?


A hair trial is booked for 1.5 hours and makeup is booked for 1 hours. The bride will be able to discuss different looks she has in mind with the stylists and will receive a complete makeup and hair service. Please bring your veil and headpiece if you have purchased it. Sometimes brides will schedule trials at the same time for their mom or Maid of Honor. If not, a guest is free to visit with you and your stylists to help with recommendations on your looks.




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. We have samples for you to try on at your trial. Your stylist can show you how they would look with your bridal style. If you love them, we will place the order for your customized extesions. When we receive them, we will hold them and prep them for the day of your wedding. (additional fee applies) We can style both clip-in extensions or any type of permanent extensions ie. bead, sewn-in, etc. as long as it is real hair.

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.

1000% recommend!

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!
