What are you doing for hair and makeup in the DR?

Recommended Posts



Hi Miss Sunshyne! Can you tell me the name of the salon where you are getting your hair done at is called? I am getting married in January and am looking for options other than the resort for my hair. Thanks!

In regards to my makeup, I'm getting a professional artist from the capital to come and do everyone's makeup, she charges $80 for brides, $50 for bridesmaids plus transportation. Makeup means alot to me, it always reflects in pictures, I think I would be stressed doing it myself.... I need to relax in the moments leading up to the ceremony.

The hair salon is called Sandra's... I have the business card at home. I will give you all the info tonight. They're very friendly, they only speak spanish though but I'm sure with pictures that you bring or you can look at their portfolio and all should be fine, they even pick you up and drop you off. The salon is average size with 4 hair dressers, pretty nice considering... (not a whole in the wall) she charges $25 for hairstyles which is great!

BUT I was prepared. I went to MAC and took a picture of what I liked with me and had one of their artists show me how, I bought all the products. As soon as I got back to my room after my makeup was done on my wedding day, I washed my face and just did it again. It didn't take long.

 

I would HIGHLY recommend that you come prepared....

Hello

 

you can see some of her work here in this blog

http://www.puffmua.blogspot.com/

 

Indira Sánchez
Make Up Artist

My friend is a model and got a hold of another associate in DR that recommended Indira.

 

I have to pay for her transportation since she's in the capital, and her prices have gone up but they're still reasonable and better than other quotes I got from make up artists out there.

    • 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!!
