Suzzane Morel...is she really worth it!

Recommended Posts

Hi Girls, I'm getting married in May and I'm having a pretty big wedding weekend (because I'm combining two ceremonies over the course of three days and haveing another special event) and will need a hair & makeup person both days. I've been told Suzzane Morel is the go-to person, but she's so expensive! Plus she requires that I have a minimum of 4 services per day in order to have the artist come to my hotel to get me ready. Is that right?? Considering I'm having 5 services over the course of 3 days it seems a little unreasonable that she won't provide me with a hair and make-up artist to come to my hotel. My question is...is she really worth it?? let me know PLEASE!

Hi! It sounds like you are going to have so much fun! Are you staying at a hotel in Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo? If you're in Cabo San Lucas, I would go to their salon for a "hair and makeup trial" (less expensive) for your first day and then have her team come on the second day for the rest of the services. The 4 "services" can include bridesmaids, MOBs and MOGs too, so keep that in mind. I convinced my MIL and MOB to get their hair and makeup done... that's four right there! Just a thought. She is expensive but I hear she's awesome. My photographer works with them almost exclusively -- go to alecandt.com for pictures. Everyone looks amazing. :)

Hi, I don't think that is very fair!  I was going to use Suzanne and then i decided she was too expensive especially when she doesn't do yur hair and make up herself.  I have now booked Neysa Berman who charges about the same for hair and make up and less for mani/pedi and she comes with a team of girls if needed but does the brides hair and make up herself.  Neysa has published work and is a MAC trained make up artist.  Have a look at her website, i couldn't be happier with her so far she always replies to my emails with 24 hours.

 

Good luck!

I sure hope shes worth it because i have her booked :) Her work is amazing from her portfolio and she is so sweet and easy to work with! I am a hair stylist myself so i know that i will be extremely picky about my hair & make up which is why i decided to splurge a bit and go with Suzanne Morel . I am getting married April 7 so i'll post picture when i get back so you can see her work

I used SM for my wedding (for myself, BM's and moms--for both hair & make up).  My overall grade woud be a B-......It was ok work but not great.  The majority of the time SM does not do hair/make up herself or even go to the wedding site the day of the service.  A group of staff is assigned to you depending on the size of your group.  I am not saying they did a horrible job, but could have been a lot better...especially for the price.

Hello~

I recently got married at the Cabo Azul resort in San Jose Del Cabo. It was beautiful! The resort is absolutely gorgeous, the staff is incredibly friendly and the chapel is amazing but, what made it all come together for me was Neysa. I just want to express how thrilled I was to have her do my hair and makeup for the big day. From the day I first emailed her to the actual wedding day, she was wonderful to work with! My emails were answered within a day and she arrived on time and ready to listen to my ideas on both the trial session and the wedding day. I asked for some drama as my dress was not your typical 'beachy' attire. I couldn't have been more happy as the result worked out perfectly with the look I was going for. I have had several comments, both on the wedding day and from pictures, about how great my makeup looked but the most important thing was that I felt amazing!! The next time I'm in Mexico I will find a reason to hire her again:) Thank you Neysa for helping make our wedding day perfect!

SilverQueen, I'm so excited that you posted this. After my horrible experience coordinating with SM I asked her to let me out of my contract and decided to book Neysa. So far my experience with Neysa and her staff has been wonderful! They are responsive, so nice and most importantly willing to work with me, and not make me feel like I'm just another bride. I'm sooo glad to hear that you had a great experience with her. I will keep you girls posted as to the overall experience.

 

Thanks again!

Hello everyone, i just got married in cabo this past march and i hired neysa berman from blanc salon to do my hair and makeup, she could not do my hair and makeup for the wedding because she was already booked for another wedding the day of my wedding but instead she sent a girl named Sunset to take her place. I am soooo happy with Sunset, from the moment she came to my hotel room for the trial i knew she was the perfect person to do my hair and makeup. Sunset did a great job on my pin up inspired wedding look, she listened to me and executed everything i had asked for. Neysa did my hair and makeup for my trash the dress shoot and she was also very good. Over all i am very happy with their services and most important neysa communicates any changes and replies to any questions quickly and will not leave you hanging. Hope the review is helpful :)

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
