Thanks as always for your sound advice! I appreciate you taking time from your busy schedule to help me. I emailed Sheque today and hope to hear back soon. I want to get my hair and make-up done at the same place so that's why i opted to call her instead of April's. I called Maxime yesterday and they were very helpful as well. Sheque's website was very helpful too! Thanks again and stay safe with TS Maia on the horizon.

This is copied from a post I submitted a while back on T&C Make-up and hair:
here is some info on the regular hair and make up people we see on island
There are 3 ladies that we see on a regular basis doing hair. For large weddings they work together on some occasions as well.
In no particular order....
Maximes....649-946-5093 Geraldine does hair and Ann (from Beauty and Beach day spa located in the shop) does Make-up. contact info is posted above
April's Place - Hair - Nails - Skin care on Providenciales Turks and Caicos Islands 649-941-3993 April does hair. She doesn't do make up.
Briget Wildt...firstname.lastname@example.org does hair (use to own Maximes and April worked for her when she first came on island, she worked from home after her son was born but now that he has just turned 11, she's opened up Tangled Hair Salon in Ports of Call
(649) 245-5241 Sheque Does hair and make up
Full disclaimer here: April does my hair and has for years, Ann does my manicures and pedicures on island and I don't wear any make up. However....Geraldine and Bridget do the hair of many of my friends and Bridget does my hair if Aprils off island (and Geraldine does April's hair...LOL it's a VERY small island) I have seen loads of photos of Sheques work and she does great work as well.
We work with all of these ladies, professionally and know them personally. For make up, Ann and Sheque both enhance someones beauty, not take over and take a life of it's own.
For hair, they are all good and not over the top. They all work with a ton of different types of hair on island (the country's population is very international) as well as having to keep up with latest trends and styles. April goes every year to the international hair/and trade show...my sister lives in Atlanta and whenever she visits she books ahead to get April to cut her hair...I know others who plan vacations to get a touch up by Maxime or Geraldine.
It's not uncommon to have all of them working together with large bridal parties, they are all friends and very good to each other.
Additionally it's a SMALL island and if you don't do good hair and make up, you won't last a season here. All of these women have been in business minimum 5-7 years with most in business here more than 10 years.
All of these ladies have very established clientele on island, so depending on when your dates are, If they are coming to you, which involves packing up and travel time etc, vs coming to the salon where they can book you and other clients in before and after, they will charge accordingly.
Hope that helps, our blog usually mentions who did hair and make up for a wedding if you want to do a search for their particular names and the wedding will pop up!
