Need Help - Franc Gole or Sebastian Salon?

Recommended Posts

I need help from all you lovely ladies out there. I'm getting married next March and I want to book hair and make-up for my wedding day. I'm debating between Franc Gole and Sebastian. I'm not a bridezilla but I'm really picky about having perfect hair and make-up. (I've had too many updo's gone wrong when I was a bridesmaid.) Can someone give me some insight into which is better? I know Franc Gole is a little more expensive and I'm willing to spend more, I just want to know they do a great job.

 

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I am having the same issue. I heard Franco does great make-up, but not great hair. Then I got a referral for Len at Blu. I just don't know what to do. I would love to be able to see photos of past brides that used someone in Puerto Vallarta

Franc did my hair in Nov. 2010 and did an amazing job... I just got on here and I will try to figure out how to upload some photos.... he did makeup as well which was fab but FYI Franc doesn´t work at the same salon anymore.  

 

And I don´t want to get into too much details but his ex business partner from his salon is still taking reservations under Franc´s name and website.    Franc´s salon is currently being run by Jesus who is the makeup artist and Mario who does hair and makeup... but let´s be honest... nobody is as a great as Franc.  :)

 

He works out of Top Salon now in Plaza Caracol and has his own direct line.  You can reach him from the US or Canada at 0115213221809358 or locally once in PV at 0443221809358.

 

so if you contact him from francgole.com it´s not Franc who replies, it´s Jesus or Mario.  

 

And if you are wondering why I know so much, it´s because I live in PV and was fortunate enough to discover Franc 5 years ago and since then have never gone to anyone else and when my man popped the question there wasn´t anyone else I would want to make my beautiful then Franc on my wedding day.

Hello!

 

I am getting married in Puerto Vallarta July 4, 2012.  I am sooooo nervous about where to get my hair done.  Can you tell me if Franc is close to Los Muertos beach?  Either way, I will drive wherever to find him!  Please help me get in touch with him as I couldn't through that other email.

 

Thanks!

I think Franc is great if it's just you you are worried about :).  If you want a party of you to go to the salon, then you might be better off at Salon Sebastian which has several stylists on staff to help - as mentioned, Franc is now at Top Salon at Plaza Caracol - it's not very far from downtown - maybe 15-20 minutes from Old Town/Downtown Vallarta.  

 

Shannon, one of our brides from last season, had Franc come to her villa and do her up-dos and her bridesmaids and he did a fantastic job - very professional.  This shows her hair a bit - but it was just the way she wanted it and I know she was very pleased.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
