    Hi girls,

    I have a posted a question similar to this a while back, but I just thought I would see if anyone has any new advice. I found someone I wanted to use for my makeup, but she is in Playa del Carmen, and doesn't travel. I will be at the Gran Caribe Real in Cancun getting ready, so I wanted to see if you girls knew of any hair stylists or makeup artists in Cancun. I definitely do not want to be doing either of these myself...

      Is there someone at your resort that could do it?

      I'm getting mine done at the resorts salon/spa

        I couldn't decide whether to do my own or trust the hotel spa, so I decided to just cough up the extra money and do a trial run 3 days before the wedding to see how they do. If they suck then I will just have my sister do it (she works at a salon but does makeup, not hair).. sorry I am not much help

          Sorry, I'm not much help. I've booked someone to do my hair, but she is from Playa del Carmen

            It's so hard to tell if you like how someone will do your hair and makeup without having tried it, but she claims to have done makeup for 20 years all over the world.

            Do the salons do a good job? I'm just worried that there might be a language barrier, and/or that it is not good and then I'm screwed. Any thoughts?

              I'm with Jilly on this issue.. i'm having it done in at the resorts spa. I am going next week to my personal stylist here in my hometown to do a "practice" on my hair and makeup.. I will take pictures and then bring the pictures with me to Cancun just in case they don't understand exactly what i want to look like!
              Not much help!
              Sorry

                I've heard to take pictures of what you want done incase the stylist doesn't speak english. I planned on learning some spanish before my wedding, but I haven't gotten started yet.

                  I am getting mine done at the JW Marriott spa, that is where I am getting married. I don't know what kind of job they do, but they supposedly have a really nice huge spa. They have thier spa information on their website.

                    What a great idea, tinabop, to do a trial run at home and take lots of pics for the Mexico stylist. I'm definitely going to copy that. Thanks!

                      I'm no help unfortunately. I have "trust" issues when it comes to hair and makeup. I figure nobody is gonna know how I like me to look...except for me. hahaha...

                      I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it (probably), but maybe try the salon at the resort.
