Back from my wedding! As I mentioned above, I booked Renova Spa for my hair and makeup and I promised to report back on the results.
We arrived at the salon for 1:00 pm and my ceremony was at 4:00 pm. There was another wedding the same day as mine but that wedding party was gone by the time we arrived. One of my bridesmaids decided to do her own hair/makeup, while another was having only makeup done (she has really short hair) and the other was having hair and makeup. The whole process for all three of us took about 1 1/2 hours.
I did not want an updo, as I never wear my hair up. I settled on a side ponytail (with extensions) because wearing your hair down is not the best idea, given the humidity.
I was very very happy with how my hair turned out. The stylist was very fast (at the trial it was under half an hour although I did arrive with clean dry hair). Below are some pics of the end result. And I should also add that my ceremony was at 4:00 pm. My hair was ready by about 2:30 or so and the hairstyle held for the entire afternoon/evening.
I am pretty picky with my makeup. I was happy with the face coverage/blush and the colours she chose for the eye makeup, but to be honest I changed it up a bit when I got back to my room. I am rarely happy with makeup artist's coverage of my under eye circles or my (non-existent) eyebrows, so I added a bit to that.
I didn't get a good pic of the the makeup while I was at the salon but below is a pic of the final result. I'm afraid I don't have my pro pics yet, or I would have a better close up:
Hope this helps!
