    I'm also having Elegance do my hair and makeup!  I'm a little worried, but we'll see :)

      I'm hoping to have my hair done at the Colonial. My bridesmaids were interested as well, but for nearly $90 US that is crazy expensive. I can get my wedding hair done in Canada at some top salons for less than that :(

       

      Very disappointed with the price. Hope the quality of my hair style makes up for it.

        Same here!! I couldn't believe the prices they are charging for hairstyles... thanksfully My resort is like 2 minutes from their plazas, I was able to meet with the owner of one of the hair salons outside of the resort and she is doing our hairstyles for $25...which is pretty awesome I brought her pics and got to see their work.. u should look into exploring outside of your resort as an option.

          I am using Spa-Med Punta Cana Palmarosa.  I have been communicating with Carole there.  She has been very prompt.  $60 for bride hair and %25 for bridesmaids.  I am going to her the day before the wedding for a trial, and day of the wedding she will be coming to my resort and doing our hair there.  I originally wanted my hair half up, but I'm worried about how it will hold up with the weather, so I am trying to find an up do that I love just incase my hair does not cooperate!

            Make sure your resort won't charge you a day pass for the stylist to come do your hair, my resort tried saying that to me which was ridiculous $95 I said no thanks I will go to them.

              Miss Sunshyne, would you mind telling me which outside vendor you are using to come and do your makeup? I am really nervous about this and I wanted a 'professional' to do my makeup and not have to just take lessons. I would really appreciate it. I'm getting married in less than a month.

                  Hi Ladies

                   

                  I was married at the Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana on April 18th. I can tell you that I didn't love my hair (had to tweak it - I asked for a side, low messy chignon and I got 80's prom spiral curals) and I HATED HATED HATED my makeup that the spa / salon did for me. 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....
