    Thanks ladies! Thisisit, that's one of my favorite engagement pics. I didn't know the photographer was shooting. He caught us in a really intimate moment. Mischaka, I was wondering about how well they would be able to add the pieces so they would blend well. I emailed Waves and pretty much asked them were they going to be able to do it or not.

      well...that's the thing...i'm going to get my weave done before I go. I'll just have them style it. I can't trust everyone to do that. lol

          Ok ladies, I think I've decided! I am going with Doranna deBortoli for my hair. She has years of experience and has experience straightening hair. I think I am going to go with an updo instead of a straw set. Her work is excellent. Her website is http://www.dorannahairstylist.com/

            Glad you found a solution.  Pleeeeease post pics once you're done.  It would be great to have some one lined up for my wedding next June.

                Hey msglave. Im getting married a few months after you at the same resort and need to find a makeup artist as well. Me and my girls range from yellow to brown lol!!! I need someone that is experienced with all different shades.  Can you let me know who you end up going with for the makeup? I think we have the hair part set (weave, locks, braids - the end). 

                 

                Thanks!

                -D

                    Hi all

                     

                    I went to do a site visit a few weeks ago and had a trial done by Norma Fernandez - who works for MAC in Cancun.  She is SUUUUPER nice and did an AWESOME job for my trial and her prices are soo much more reasonable compared to a few other artists in town.  She brought another girl with her, Lesley, to do my hair and i had my reservations about how she did. I literally came out of the pool, washed my hair and plopped down for my trial - yes a sopping mop of tangled mess.  I don't know any other worse scenario I could have given Lesley so I was thinkng to myself- if i come out of this half decent she's good.  I need a ton of heat for my hair - and its THICK-  i swear i have enough hair for two people. and its long.  my fears were suddenly alleviated when after blow drying my hair out into a crazy 'fro, she whipped out a chi flat iron.  :)   about a half hour later of curling and twirling i had a fancy wavy updo that she fastened with some kind of clip and rubber band and bobby pins.  I want to wear my hair up for the ceremony and dinner then let it out and down for the dancing. I didn't get too specific with style - i just let Norma and Jen do their thang and it turned out really really awesome.  My fi was there and I think he really really liked it b/c my makeup just looked like an enhancement of me - i didn't look a completely different person. the makeup felt light -  I asked for natural and to play up my eyes with lashes.  and it came out great!  i'm posting a random pic of what my hair looks like natural - and then the "after" pics.  any questions  just ask!

                      Eunice!  Thank you so much for posting.  They did a fabulous job!  You look beautiful! My hair is similar to yours (the natural curls a little tighter which makes my hair a little thicker) but it would be the same process. So if she could work yours she can work mine!

                       

                      Do you know if they go to Cancun?
