Pros: Edgar is very timely in answering email, not only does Melissa do wedding H&M she also travels to LA and does photo shoots which means she's super into new/trendy/edgy looks
Cons: Melissa doesn't live in Chicago and can't do my H&M all the time :(
I recently got married in Riviera Maya & knew that I wanted to use a hair and makeup team outside of the spa resort. After some researching online I found MVP. I contacted Edgar to ask about pricing & he immediately got back with me. After careful consideration I decided to pay a little more to have Melissa do my hair and makeup. This was the best decision ever. Melissa is absolutely incredible. I knew I wanted a high bun with some volume in front. She took it to the next level! I was bl

Pros: Everything!
I was going crazy trying to find a hair and makeup team that had their own location outside of my hotel in Puerto Aventuras. I was not comfortable using the hotel salon and did not want to pay vendor fees to have multiple people come on site. Thank goodness I found Melissa and Edgar. Total power couple, killing it in the Riviera Maya. They have a condo in PA. All I have to say is BOOK MELISSA. She is worth every penny. The last thing you want to skimp on for your wedding is hair and makeup! Meli

Pros: Professional, educated, AMAZING!
Cons: Nothing!
Let me start by saying how truly AMAZING Melissa and Team MVP are at what they do! When it came to my wedding day, after the dress, the most important thing to me was hair & makeup. As a New Yorker, I knew finding someone in Mexico who would share my vision might be difficult, until I came across MVP! It takes an enormous amount of trust to book a hair & makeup artist, for the biggest day of your life based solely on pictures. But the work Melissa and Team MVP do, truly speaks for it

Pros: Quality, Professionalism, Ability, Affordability
Cons: None
The MVP team is amazing!  The ladies were running a little late because of some bad weather but as soon as they arrived they went straight to work. We had mine, my mom, my mother-in-law and my sister-in-laws make up and hair done - all turned out amazing! The ladies were so professional and sweet, listening to every ones worries and wants. The quality of work was great. I am very into make up and they used the best primers and foundations. I was worried about my make up staying put, as my weddin
I have only great things to say about Melissa. Her style is awesome, so I knew I could trust her with my hair and makeup for my wedding. She took a bunch of ideas and a vibe of my style and turned it into beautiful hair and makeup. She granted all of my wishes and then some. When I wanted to make some small changes on the day of my wedding she was more than happy to give me what I wanted. She was calm and flexible even when glasses were being broken in the room, members of my wedding party were

Pros: Everything

I am not even sure where to begin! I could not have been happier in my choice of using Melissa and her team at MVP Hair and Makeup Artistry. I searched and searched for hair and makeup professionals for our destination wedding in Mexico for weeks and wanted to make sure I found not only someone who would do an amazing job but someone who I felt comfortable with. I got both with MVP! From the moment I inquired via email I got quick informative responses and they were happy to help me and answer a
Cons: NONE
This review, these accolades, this genuine acknowledgement and praise comes a year and a half past due. My belatedness has everything to do with the busyness that has taken place following my amazingly blessed wedding celebration. This piece here, comes from my heart, means as much to me now as it would have had I written it 18 months ago, and above and beyond all else, is an absolute honor and privilege to write.   How could writing on someone’s behalf and bestowing accolades upon another be

Pros: amazing products. hair and makeup stayed put
Cons: none
I could not have been any more satisfied from Melissa and MVP.  I was very hesitant to have someone do my hair and makeup, especially someone i have never met before, but based on the reviews here and the Facebook pics from MVP i bit the bullet.   Edgar was a dream to work with.  He was prompt, patient, and so easy to communicate with.  He answered every one of my questions and never made me feel bad for asking so many.  ha   I ended up hiring Melissa to do my trial, then change for my rehea

Pros: EVERYTHING - communication, precision, amazing hair and makeup, EVERYTHING
Cons: NONE!
MELISSA AND HER TEAM ARE PERFECTION!   I can't think of one bride who doesn't want to just look perfect on her wedding day. Besides getting the right dress, its the hair and makeup that you kind of worry about going right. From the beginning the communication from MVP was amazing. I would get responses literally minutes from the time I sent the e-mail. And as busy brides know, THAT MEANS THE WORLD! I met Melissa a few days before my wedding day. During the trial she brought me to ease as I saw

Pros: Everything
Cons: None
Let me start off by saying that I am extremely picky about my hair and makeup ... especially for my wedding day! I was very nervous about having people who I have never met before do the job. But, I was nervous for nothing ... Team MVP was amazing!!! Edgar was wonderful about responding promptly to all of my emails and making sure that all of questions were answered. He arranged to have the girls come to my hotel room to do a trial a couple of days before the wedding and then also be there for t

Pros: Makeup lasted throughout the night, efficient communication and amazing work!
Cons: None at all
We decided to go with MVP after doing a lot of research online and let me tell you it was the best decision I could have made!! Melissa was absolutely amazing as well as very professional. The communication back and forth leading up to the wedding was so efficient and helpful. Her and her team completely transformed all 7 of us and we were all in shock at how good we all looked! The entire experience working with them was incredible from start to finish and I would highly recommend them.

Pros: quality, quick responses, professional, packages for every budget, offer many services
I researched "the best hair and makeup artists in Cancun, Mexico" and MVP kept popping up every time. I normally hate anyone doing my makeup so i was initially extremely hesitant to book with anyone but really wanted to look glamorous and not like my everyday self for my big day. I decided to go ahead and email MVP for prices and availability for my wedding date and I was surprised when only a few hours passed by and I had already received a reply from them. Since I was still a little hesitant I

Pros: perfectionist, good communication
Cons: expensive
finally getting the chance to write my review about melissa and her team. my wedding was last april at secrets maroma beach.  first of all, i made a very good decision going with her as she is very professional and does magic on your face.  i had hired her last minute to my wedding because i orginally hired someone else who was just horrible at returning my emails and therefore i did not trust them.  i was glad that melissa was still available on the day of my wedding and yes it is a splurge but
Pros: Great service, responsive, beautiful end result!
Cons: None!
I got married at the Barcelo Maya Palace on July 1st, 2015. One of the first things I looked for when we decided on a destination wedding was a great hair & makeup artist - I was extremely nervous about finding someone, and Melissa immediately put all my worries to rest! They were extremely responsive from the very beginning - which, when dealing with vendors for a destination wedding is SO helpful and important. All emails were typically answered within an hour - an impressive feat! Once th
Pros: Quality, Talent, Communication,Patient
Cons: None
I got married at Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe, Riviera Maya in June 2014. I hired Edgar/Melissa and their team for hair/makeup services and I am so happy I did. Edgar and Melissa were absolutely amazing to work with. Edgar is very professional and was very quick to respond to my emails.   Melissa did a phenomenal job with my hair and make up on all three different days.  She was able to create hair styles and make-up exactly what I had envisioned for both.  She came to our hotel and got me and

Pros: Attention to detail, Stylish, Artistic, Client Service
Cons: None!
I had the pleasure of working with MVP for my wedding in May 2015 in playa del Carmen. They are the absolute best!  Edgar was so responsive, getting back to me within hours and answering any questions I had. He was also very accommodating not with any scheduling requests or changes to the services I wanted/number of guests etc.   When I arrived in Playa, I met Melissa on the first day for my trial. As someone who lives in New York City, hair and makeup was one area I was nervous about when I

Pros: professional, timely, artistic

I had the pleasure of working with Melissa and Edgar from MVP for my 3 day Indian/Egyptian wedding at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya in 2/2015. Melissa was very creative and was able to give me unique looks for each event and did it very efficiently. Edgar was very professional in handling the booking and payment and was very responsive to my needs. Overall, I would highly recommend MVP to everyone!

Pros: efficient , professional , good quality products
Cons: none
I had the great pleasure working with Melissa and her team. From the beginning booking the services with them was super easy. I was able to reserve the date within hours that I sent an email to them. Edgar was very efficient and helpful and was able to answer all the questions and concerns I had. I met Melissa a couple of days before the wedding for a trial and she did an amazing job. She competed my vision and even more . She is very professional and loves what she does. The wedding day s

Pros: Great communication, amazing work, great value, professional
Cons: NONE
Hair & make up was one area I didn't hesitate to spend money on. I have read such great reviews on MVP way before we even got engaged and as soon as we decided on a destination wedding I booked MVP right away no doubt in my mind with my decision. From the beginning (over a year in advance) the communication and fast timely responses were awesome. Edgar who books all of Melissa's appointments is an absolute amazing man. He answered all my questions even my hesitations it was a pleasure to wor

Pros: Highlight natural beauty, professional, uses the best products
Cons: None.
On the day of my best friend's wedding we had our makeup and hair done by MVP and they knocked it out of the park! Besides making the bride's features naturally pop, Melissa and her team helped the entire bridal party and both mothers look and feel their best. They listened to our requests, and added an extra touch of glamour that we didn't know was even possibly! I have never felt more beautiful, and my hair and makeup lasted well into the night, even after shedding tears and jumping into the o

Pros: Perfect style, very professional, fun to work with
Cons: Literally none
From the moment you contact MVP, you know you're in good hands. Edgar is so responsive and professional, he alleviates any concerns you may have about hiring someone who isn't local to your city. I don't even know where to start with how awesome Melissa and her team are. She's a tiny little thing, but shows up with a makeup kit that is larger than her!! She has EVERYTHING. For each day (trial, rehearsal dinner, wedding, and trash the dress), I talked to her about what I liked and didn't lik
Pros: Responsiveness, Professionalism, Extremely talented Make-Up Artist and Stylist
Cons: None
Edgar and Melissa = Phenomenal. When one of my bridesmaids looked at herself in the mirror, she cried...as they each did when they saw the transformation. As I stood waiting to walk down the isle, I looked out and the beauty was indescribable. I took my first few steps and instantly became overwhelmed with emotion. So I stood there and allowed myself to cry...tears of happiness. I trusted Melissa and her team truly to be her canvas and she turned each of us into a work of art. I can speak for my

Melissa and her team at MVP are total rock stars, and I feel honored that she did my hair and makeup for the wedding. From the word "go," she made me feel incredibly comfortable and confident. I have seriously never looked better in my life... and it wasn't the white dress that did it. It was all Melissa.   I cannot say enough great things about working with MVP. They were professional, thoughtful, helpful and kind... not to mention ridiculously talented. They asked for "inspiration photos" fo

Pros: Responsiveness, loyalty, professionalism, expertise
Cons: None
Planning a wedding from afar is not an easy task, but after researching blogs and reviews I finally found MVP - the stood out to me as the best hair and make up company in the Playa Del Carmen/Cancun area. As soon as I started emailing Edgar from MVP, I knew this company was loyal. They are quick to respond, utilize the convenience of paypal and are very flexible. Melissa was AMAZING. She made me feel comfortable as soon as I met her as if she was my very own hair stylist from home. Melissa and

Pros: super talented make-up artist and very professional!
Cons: none!
After extensive research on BDW, MVP seemed like the best choice!   My experience with Edgar and Melissa affirmed that!   Before communicating with Edgar, I obviously had some reservations about picking vendors from miles away.  After communicating with Edgar over email – I knew I had made a great decision!  He was very professional, timely and responsive in all his emails and really took the time to ensure that all my questions were answered.    I had my trial the day before my mehndi (a tr
