    I've recently been checking out hair/make up stylist for my upcoming wedding. I found Waves Salon and spoke with the manager. He sounds awesome, but I haven't been able to find any reviews. Just wondering if anyone has used them for their wedding or has heard anything about their services.

    Thanks!!

      I've been corresponding with Trevor as well. I havent found any reviews on this forum but he's got rave reviews on the web. I scheduled my hair and makeup trial with him for this coming July when we're doing our site visit.

      He offered me a 20% group discount because we have 12 women including myself getting their hair done, so definitely inquire about this if you end up going with him.

      I just found the 96 for a special occassion style at El Spa to be a bit ridiculous. I am undecided about paying for the guest passes to have them come to the resort or just taking the shuttle to Playa the morning of the wedding. If you get your services performed at the salon, they include brunch so that's a plus.

      Let me know what you decide :)

        Oh my gosh, just realized your wedding is in less than two weeks! You must be so excited! Can't wait to hear your review!

          Do you guys know if their team is able to travel to resorts? Our resort is 10 minutes from Playa del Carmen and we have about 12 that will need their hair done as well.

            Yes, my wedding is in 2 weeks and I'm crazy excited!!

            Trevor did say they could do either, shuttle or come to the resort. That is honestly one of the main reasons I wanted to go with a stylist so that I could just have my hair done in the room. However, the brunch does sound really fun too!

            He does seem to have GREAT prices. I asked him about the guest passes and he told me not to worry about it, that he would talk with the resort and get it covered. I guess since he is not going to be using the facility or having dinner he will probably try and convince them that he doesn't need to pay. But, since he said not to worry I am assuming he'll cover the cost if they do make him pay.

            Hopefully someone will jump in and give us a review, but I think he's going to be great!

                Really, he said he'd take care of it?!

                When I told him about the guest passes, Trevor wrote me back and said "I can't believe they charge that!" but did not say not to worry about it or that he'd talk to them. I'll have to slyly mention it at the trial haha.

                The price he quoted me for the BM's was 72 for hair, and 120 for both hair & makeup --not bad. For me I think it's like 136 total -which is great!!

                Is that what he quoted you as well?

                I can't wait to heat the scoop from you when you get back. How's the home stretch treating you?

                  I actually called him and when we were talking I said I was concerned about so many stylists coming because of the guest passes. He said he would call the resort and speak with them since he speaks Spanish. I guess we'll see if he actually follows through.

                  I was quoted the same thing for bridesmaids, but $170 for hair and make up for me. I'm really interested to see what the airbrushing looks like, I've never tried it before. Thankfully I'm going in for a trial before the wedding to check it out.

                  The home stretch has been great, though I still have a few things to check off my list. Mostly getting ready for the vacation part is what I still have left to do. I'm excited and can't wait to share all the details!!

                    Thanks for sharing, ladies! I'm also looking for hair/makeup in Riviera Maya for next year. I am about to book Fernando Fuentes but find that he is a bit expensive.

                    Would you mind sharing the contact info for Waves?

                    Thanks a bunch!
