Hair and nail Salon??

Recommended Posts

I did get my hair done at the salon but not my nails. I wasn't going to but decided the day before that I would. I was worried doing it but my plan was to keep it simple. At the salon they didn't have the products or equipment that I was use to so that made me worry more. I just told her that I wanted really loose curls, half back with my veil and hair flower. She started putting velcro rollers in tight to my head all over, wrapped a net over them, and put me in the hair dryer for about 45 min. I was so worried but it turned out great. She definitely knew what she was doing and I was more than pleased. I even did test curls at home and couldn't get the curl I wanted but she managed :)

I have never been, but I heard that the nail salons don't have a great selection of nail polish. I'd bring my own from home and leave it there, the nail lady will appreciate the gift.

 

I guess it depends on the resort as to if they have spa services. What resort are you going to?

I'm getting married at Barcelo marina Palace. I'm not sure exactly what I want to do to my hair and not knowing the hairdresser makes me nervous.

 

Also, we will be in cuba for a week before the wedding so i don't think my nails will hold up if i get them done here either. I'm sure they will be able to do a simple french manicure, right?? :S

Ok... so if you scope out my planning thread you can read all about how crazy worried I was about my hair... I asked a girlfriend of mine (not a wedding party member) to be my "HAIR MANAGER" we did a trial here at home, and she photographed all the stages. I printed the photos all out and brought them with me to Cuba....

60 pictures in total were printed and placed in a photo album

 

I then went to the local professional beauty supply store and purchased a box of pro bobby pins, joico brand mousse, gel, and ultimate high humidity hairspray. I was ready.

 

On the morning of the wedding we ventured to the salon - I was still nervous.

 

My Hair Manager toted along all of the products we would need. The Barcelo Marina Palace only has one hairstylist -- Maria -- and she was absolutely amazing. An absolutely beautiful woman, so kind and gentle.

 

She really loved a white hair flower I was wearing (from one of those accessory stores) and asked if at the end of my vacation if I would sell it to her for her daughter. I immeadiately gave her the flower, and at the end of our stay -- dropped off other hair accessories, and left all the professional products with her. She was very appreciative.

As you can see in my review and pics, my hair was awesome... and it held all day!

 

I had my nails done at home before leaving (mani and pedi)....

 

Happy planning.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
