In the meantime-- would you be able to give me a ballpark idea on pricing for their services? I cannot seem to find this on their website. Thanks in advance!

I just wanted to bump this thread as I've seen a few questions about who to use for hair and makeup in the Riviera Maya area.  I highly recommend Fernando from The Makeup Pros, and it appears a lot of other brides do too!  themakeuppros@hotmail.com

 

His team did the hair and makeup for the August wedding I photographed, if you click the link you can see their pictures to see how it looked... and also see who Fernando is!: Gran Bahia Principe Tulum

 

He uses MAC and was fabulous.

Just wanted to chime in here...we just got married last month and I booked the Makeup Pros.  Yes, prices are very similar to DC or NY bridal hair/makeup, but it was SO worth it.  I can't even begin to describe how beautiful I felt and how great it was to have these guys help us get ready.  It was like chatting with an old friend who happened to do the best makeup EVER. Friends and family were so complimentary - I mean, I guess it's to be expected, I was the bride and all, but they were gushing.

 

I communicated over email with Fernando to set things up, which was pretty simple.  He wasn't available for my wedding, so he offered his partner, Julius, for makeup and then Cesar for hair.  At first, I was a little nervous since all the reviews I could dig up were for Fernando, so I was wondering where they were hiding this Julius character.  Turns out, he also does photo shoots and travels all over the place for MAC so isn't always in town.  So yeah, I totally lucked out because he is incredibly talented!  I explained that I wanted a shimmery brown/golden eye and whatever else he thought best flattered my features and coloring and he definitely delivered.

 

As for hair, I knew I wanted it up (would definitely recommend that in Tulum due to the wind!) so showed a few pics to Cesar on the day of.  He and I had the same favorite look (updo with a braid wrapped around it), so he quickly got to work.  I brought extensions to help give my fine, medium length hair enough oomph for the updo.  He painstakingly put in all 7 of those bad boys and blended them seamlessly.  I still have a big smile on my face thinking of my hair that day - for once in my life, could have been in a Pantene commercial or something.

 

I skipped trial to save on time and cost, and it was totally fine - these guys are pros.  They arrived right on time, were so nice, and very talented.

 

Here are some pics from our wedding that show the hair and makeup team in action!

Fernando and his team from MakeupPros did my wedding a month ago in Tulum. I had a bunch of fussy New York girls including myself and they all couldn't have done a better job! The hair + makeup on everyone including myself was truly perfect. They knew what made everyone look great and we had a great time getting ready too. I highly reccomend Fernando and his team.

Fernando and his hairstylist did my hair and makeup for my October wedding in Cancun and were absolutely incredible! I have never gotten my hair and makeup done, and was nervousness about not looking like myself on my wedding day. Fernando's online photos of hair and makeup convinced me to go with him for my wedding because all of the brides looked natural and flawless. They did an incredible job! I didn't do a trial, showed them two photos and gave a vague description, and they executed perfectly! I was the most beautiful version of me, and the hair and makeup complimented my dress and jewelry perfectly. It also held up the entire night on the beach and through the wind of photos and dancing. Fernando is fun sweet and very professional. He also did my moms makeup too, she had a ball getting ready! Prior to the wedding we spoke on the phone twice, and Fernando even called me the day before my wedding making sure we were all set which I really liked. You need a professional for your wedding hair and makeup- go with Fernando at the MakeUp Pros, you will not regret it!
