How soon should I book my Hair/Make-up?

Recommended Posts

I don't know for sure if I even want this...but if I do, how long ahead of time should I book this and does anyone have any recommendations?

I don't know how the resorts work, but for a regular hairdresser, some book 6-8 months in advance...

I used Suzanne Morel for my hair and makeup only (actually I added nails to that mix too the day before the wedding...she charged me $25 more, which was nothing)

 

For hair and makeup she charged me...

 

Hair & Make-up……………………………………..$190.00 usd

 

 

 

Total………………………………………………….$190.00 usd

 

10% Taxes…………………………………………..$19.00 usd

 

15% Service…………………………………………$28.50 usd

 

 

 

Balance………………………………………………$237.50 usd

 

The girl that did my hair and makeup and nails was really nice...didn't catch her name though sad.gif

 

I totally recommend them

I also used Suzanne Morel (for a similar arrangement as Drea) and booked as soon as I knew that's what I wanted. I felt lucky they were still available as I just did this in July and my wedding is in Nov. If you're not doing it at the hotel, I would recommend booking as early as you can.

Well Drea you looked very beautiful so I will have to note her for just in case. I am guessing I will definately have my hair done but not sure about the make up. I haven't even checked with the hotel yet...but I guess I should check their pricing too...

I would say at least 3 months in advance, but you could always book sooner. I would send an email or call the place you are thinking about using and see what they recommend. I found out during my planning that even though I told maye months and months in advance what I wanted, she didn't actually call them until we were much closer to the wedding date.

She did your nails too?! Wow that's a pretty good deal then. She did a good job Drea your hair looked realy pretty half up :)

My resort wants a 50% deposit down, so I'm thinking of going elsewhere. I don't know but for some reason I'm not getting a good impression from the salon at the resort. Not very organized, months to reply to me etc.

We allready booked our hair and makeup and our wedding is still 10 months out. We (me and my two sisters) are using Suzanne Morales (spelling is prob wrong) everyone raves about her but she is kinda pricey. I am getting a trial done with her in a few weeks and will post a review as soon as we get back.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
