    I have less than 2 months to go and just got an email from Renova Salon at RIU Palace. Has anyone had their hair and makeup done by them? Any advice? I definitely want to get my hair done, but am not sure about makeup.

      Hi Brandi!
      If you are looking for an outside vendor, Neysa Berman is an incredible hair and makeup artist.
      Good luck with your planning!

        Hi! I haven't heard too many good reviews re: hair & makeup at the Renova Spa....their spa services are good though. I am getting married at the Santa Fe and was thinking about the spa, since I wanted to stay on the resort....BUT I didn't want to chance my hair not turning out very well. I am booked with Suzanne Morel - all her reviews are amazing :) Neysa also does a fantastic job, I hear. Good luck with your planning!!!!

        By the way, I read a review on her that the Bride and her MOH went to Renova for their trial and ended up cancelling their appointment for her wedding day....that is when I got a little frightened. Just an fyi.

          I have heard so many good things about Suzanne Morel, I didn't even think twice about using her for hair & makeup. Let us know how it goes with Renova Spa. I want to give my bridesmaids more options.

            Thanks so much! I just emailed Suzanne Morel, does anyone know where she is located? Is she close to the RIU Palace?

              I got married at the Riu Palace on April 18, and got my hair done at the Renova Spa. They did a really great job although I brought pictures and we did a trial hairdo a couple days before so I'm not sure what it would have been like had we not done that. Also I had a friend come for both sessions and she was extremely helpful - always good to have second set of eyes. Cecilia did my hair and Claudia did my Mom's hair at the same time and she ended up helping with mine at the end. Both are very good but I think Claudia is probably a little better and definitely speaks better English.
              Good luck!

                Does anyone know if Suzanne Morel or Neysa Berman is closer to the Riu Palace?

                  I spoke with Suzanne Morel on the phone and she said you can see the Riu Palace from her place, she said it's less then a $10 cab ride and super close.
