Beaches T&C hair and makeup @ the spa...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

There are a few threads out there about this, but I can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for.  I was wondering if anyone has had their hair and makeup done at the spa @ Beaches.  Were you satisfied?  Did you have amazing results?  Everyone has raved about Sheque Perfection, but she's very expensive.  Not sure what to do... Opinions/suggestions please!

Barefootidos,

 

This is something that I found myself struggling with as well. However, I had a friend who was married at the Sandals in Negril, and before the wedding she went to Sephora, MAC and some other place and asked them to do her make-up as if it were her wedding day. She explained that she was having a destination wedding. So all three places showed her how to apply the make-up correctly. Of course she had to purchase some of their products- she practiced for months, and by the time wedding arrived she'd accomplished the task at hand!

 

I hope this helps...or gives you some other ideas.

Hello!  I am getting married at Beaches T&C on May 21, 2011 and I have been wondering the same thing.  I am thinking about just doing it myself.  I would be REALLY disappointed if I paid for them to do my hair and makeup, just for it to look bad and then not have enough time to fix it.  So, I am thinking about watching some videos on YouTube about how to apply makeup for your wedding day (and the same with bridal hairstyles).  Kind of a "hair and make-up tutorial" online!  I haven't searched for videos yet, but you can find almost ANYTHING on Youtube!

 

Mistibuard had a great idea, too!  Those ladies that work at the make-up counters seem to really know their stuff!!  :-)

Hi ladies!

 

I got married in May this year at beaches and I did have them do my hair and makeup. I had no problem with the hair but you need to tell them what you want exactly and they will do it, i loved my hair! I have long straight hair and wanted it to one side and soft and wavy, it came out exactly how i wanted it. the makeup was not bad at all but heavier than i like,  i tended to want to fix it more to what i am used to when i got back. i tend to do that whenever i have my makeup done anywhere though!

Ha-ha!  I am the same way!  I do NOT wear a lot of make-up at all. If I get my make-up done at the resort, I am sure I'll have to adjust it to my liking before the wedding, which is fine!  I'm glad the hairstylist was able to do you exactly what you wanted.  Now I just have to decide what style I want...decisions, decisions...  :-)

I never thought i would go there either...but then i think about how a less expensive dress means more days in paradise, it starting to seem more appealing!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
