    We are getting married at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach; they have a policy where I can't bring IN my own makeup/hair artist. I have to use their salon, or leave the resort to get it done. Has anyone used the resorts salon? I am wary of using it... and would like to hire someone outside. BUT, my fears could be irrational and the stylists at the salon could be stellar. 


    I've contacted Suzanne Morel, and am thinking of taking a cab to her salon. Has anyone left the resort to do their hair/makeup? How did that go? Did you melt in the cab on the way back?


    What are you doing/what did you do?

      I actually just returned from staying at this beautiful resort!...LOVE IT!  Although they have a state of the art spa I would definitely go with an outside stylist who is a professional at what they do....and Suzanne and her staff are fabulous! I hired them for my wedding, but they came out to our location which was extremely convenient!  I have also been to her salon and I think you will be fine if you have to go get ready at her salon and travel back in a cab...they are pretty well air conditioned.  I didn't do a hair & make up trial, I took everybody's satisfaction into consideration on this forum and I was very pleased with my hair and make up :) Good Luck!

        I'm getting married at Dreams and am having Suzanne and her team come to the resort for us. I've spoken to her a few times and I have to say she is absolutely amazing with communication, organization and making me feel at ease. I haven't had the services yet so cannot speak to those.

        I'm going to her salon for a hair and makeup trial the day before the wedding just to ensure everything works well.

          Thank you so much for your input! Hearing that the cabs mostly have AC makes me feel much better. 


          I just booked Suzanne and team for our wedding. Since the resort didn't have any photos of brides that they've done I just don't feel comfortable relying on that. Plus, I spoke to Suzanne on the phone and she was wonderful.
