Hair and Makeup Options 

As all of you know, the Miss USA Organization has a hair and makeup sponsor for the 2022 Miss USA and Miss Teen USA State Titleholders for the Onstage Preliminary and Finals competitions during the week at our national competition in Reno.

A few state directors have indicated that some state Titleholders would prefer to apply their makeup or style their hair themselves. Therefore, we are allowing you to either have our makeup artists apply your makeup or have our hair artists style your hair, or you can do your makeup or hair yourself.

With this optional change, you are still ineligible to have an outside makeup artist or hairdresser help with this self-preparation. Remember, you signed your Contestant Entry Form/Contract (or, in some cases, Addendum A) that reads as follows:

“I understand and agree that during Miss USA Week, I will not leave my room to go to any other hotel room or area for makeup artistry, hair artistry, or to meet with family members or friends without prior approval from the Miss USA Organization or my chaperone. I understand and agree that during Miss USA Week, I will not allow a makeup artist, hairdresser, family members, or friends to visit my hotel room without prior approval from the Miss USA Organization or my chaperone. I understand and agree that I may be disqualified from the competition if I violate these rules.”

If you are doing your own makeup, you must use a minimum of four SeneGence products and make one post before the Finals highlighting the products you used. SeneGence will provide an assortment of products from which you can select while in Reno.

As of Thursday, September 15th, a hair service selection form is available in the Contestant Section of the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA portal. It will be a very short turnaround for you to decide whether you want our Miss USA sponsors to do your hair or if you will do it yourself. You will have until the end of the day on Friday, September 16th, to make that decision. To find the Hair and Makeup form:

Spray Tanning Sponsor 

Infinity Sun has agreed to sponsor tanning for any of our State Titleholders who may be interested.

Spray tanning is available only after the Preliminary Competition is complete.

As of Thursday, September 15th, a spray tanning selection form is available in the Contestant Section of the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA portal. It will be a very short turnaround for you to decide on whether or not you want a spray tan. You will have until the end of the day on Friday, September 16th, to make that decision.

At contestant check-in on September 26th, Miss Titleholders can sign up for a 15-minute time slot beginning at 10:00 p.m. October 1, 2022, if they have selected to have a spray tan by September 15th.

At contestant check-in on September 27th, Teen Titleholders can sign up for a 15-minute time slot beginning at 9:00 p.m. September 30, 2022, if they have selected to have a spray tan by September 15th.

If you decide to use their spray tan services, you will be required to make one post during Miss USA/Miss Teen USA Week. The Social Media Team will include those details in the Pageant Week Socials Guide that they will provide.

Infinity Sun recommends the following for the best spray tanning results:

Before Your Spray Tan Appointment 

  • Cleanse your skin
  • Exfoliate at least three hours before
  • Shave
  • Do not apply lotion
  • Do not apply deodorant

After Your Spray Tan Appointment 

  • Wait until the prescribed time by your tanning artist before showering
  • Warm water rinse for your first shower
  • Do not sweat until after your first shower
  • Do not swim
  • Apply extender products to stay hydrated
  • Use touch-up spray for hands, face, and feet
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing and open-toed sandals immediately after your tan

If you plan to be spray tanned, please bring your own sheets and pillowcases. If you leave spray tan residue on the hotel’s sheets and pillowcases, they may charge you a fee for “room damages.”  To learn more about Infinity Sun, please click on the link below:

TEEN

There may be a few additional Grand Sierra Resort deliverables. We will provide you with a complete list of all the required social media deliverables to you in Reno at Contestant Check-in.


Semi-Finalists’ Wardrobe Move

Before going onstage for the announcement of the Semi-Finalists, your chaperone will provide instructions on organizing your competition items to ensure a smooth transition to the Semi-Finalists’ dressing area if you become a 2022 Semi-Finalist. This transition is quick, so chaperones must be able to identify your competition items and move them quickly. Because of the fast turnaround to go back onstage to compete and limited space, all of your Semi-Finalist and Finals competition items must fit into the following two pieces:

 

SEMI-FINALISTS’ WARDROBE REQUIREMENTS

Attire Number Needed Description Additional Comments
Gown Bag 1 This bag should be long enough for your hanging items (gown, etc.) and light enough to pick up and move quickly.

Small Bag/ Carry-on 1 This bag should be large enough to contain those smaller items you need for competition (shoes, jewelry, undergarments, etc.). This bag should not be larger than a carry-on suitcase.

 

Because of the  limited space and tight turnarounds, we will be unable to move the following items to the Semi-Finalists’ dressing area:

  1. Utility wagons
  2. Large suitcases
  3. Folding garment bags

Remember to label all your items with your name and State so they are easily identifiable. Your chaperone will provide complete instructions in Reno.
