    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone used Doranna for their bridal hair and Fernando for their makeup.

    I can't decide who I should use. My hair is very important to me so I thought I should go with Doranna and her makeup artist but then I remembered all the great reviews from past brides about Fernando's makeup and got confused. I do not know who Doranna brings for makeup and I do not know much about who Fernando will bring for my hair so I worry.

    Do you think I should just hire Doranna for my hair and Fernando for my make-up? Do you think they would be upset if I didn't do both hair and make-up with the same company?

    Please let me know your thoughts. I do not want it to be awkward on the day.

      I can only speak for Fernando but I love, love, loved him. Would totally recommend many times over.
      I dunno if they would get upset if you hired one for one thing and another for something else but it could get expensive, and I would tell them before hand just so everyone is clear.

      Highly recommend Doranna! Wife's hair stayed regardless of heat + salsa/contemporary/tango first dance and 2+hrs of salsa dancing.

      And our friend did my wife's makeup. They both worked together at the same time while I suntanned and had a beer. There were no problems.

        Doranna has a partner Olivia that does bridal makeup and she uses quality products. Check out the portfolio on her web site to get an idea. Also email her and she will be more than happy to answer all your questions.

          How did you pay Fernando? Did you have to send him a deposit before hand? I'm just curious as to how it works, if I end up hiring someone in Cancun rather than using my resort's spa for hair/makeup.

           

          thanks!

            HI ladies I just go back from my wedding and also can a test to how amazing Fernando is!! and his hair guy Gama - they were both amazing and so fun

             

            When I paid him I sent to a deposit to his sisters house in Chicago. I had no issues at all. On the day of the wedding I paid him the rest in cash in dollars.

             

            He really made my wedding day ;)

                I've used both Fernando & Doranna...they do wonderful work!!!

                 

                I use Doranna more often, and she has an amazing understanding of HAIR! especially in that tropical climate.  I recommend using outside vendors if possible and if you do decide to go with the resort spa, then a trial is definitely a good idea, especially for the make up.

                 

                Have FUN!!!

                  Would any of you be so kind so send me Fernando's email?  I tried to email via his website, but I'm not sure if it's going through.  Thanks so much!!!
