Fernando for hair (PV)???

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

Nicole at LC suggested I use "Fernando" for my hair and make-up. Does anyone have any experience with him? Any feedback would be appreciated!

I don't have any experience with him, but it's who I will also be using for my wedding - in exactly 30 days : )

When I spoke with Nicole last week, she highly recommended Fernando and a few of the brides in June and one in July had used him. He uses MAC make-up, too.

Are you doing a trial ahead of time? I asked Nicole about it and she said Fernando works out of a salon north of Nuevo Vallarta and a trial run would be about $60-80.

 

Since we're only going to be in PV for a few days, I hate to take time away from the guests to go up and have a trial run (plus spend the extra $$), but then again, I don't want crazy hair or make-up!

No, I won't be doing a trial. Just going to bring a lot of pictures of what I want it to look like. I had done a trial with L'occocco back in April, but for good reasons, Nicole will no longer work with them. The trial went well and at least I have an idea of what will look good.

Fernando did my hair and I LOVED it... and I've never ever had an up do that I loved. He rules!

 

If you click on "wedding pics and eyespy photography review" in my siggy, there is a picture of my hair in that thread

I just booked a trial with Fernando. I am kinda nurveous though, maybe ladies who have already used him can comment - I would really appreciate that for my sanity, as my hair that day is very imporant.

 

Hi, for those ladies who have gotten married already, I just sent a deposit, only to find after the fact that when Fernando said that he has no other weddings that day that I misunderstood and infact, he has already booked another one some time ago.

 

Now my ceremony is at 2 pm, the other lady is on this forum and her ceremony is at 3:30. Mine is at Secrets Maroma and hers is at The Royal, PDC. We are both freaking out, I called him and he had indicated that this Saturday he has 3 and that this is typical. I just don’t know what to do, I thought I would splurge as hair is super important to me and now I am worried its going to be a rush job for multiple of what I would have paid else where.

 

Yikes this is just too stressful.

 

Thanks for all your input.

I just spoke to Fernando the other day and I had the same issue. Fernando felt really bad for having another wedding to attend to so he recommended his teacher to do my make-up instead. He assured me I wont be disappointed. Im scheduling a trial for the day before so I could have professional make-up and hair done for my welcome party. If it doesnt work out, then I will be out $150 and will just use the resorts salon for hair and make up.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
