Hair and Make Up at the Riu!

Recommended Posts

i think you should have a couple of test runs.

 

First, try doing it yourself and then take a picture of it. If you like it...great!! If not, ask a friend and do the same thing........take a picture (just to see how well it photographs).

 

If you are still not pleased, book the appointment at the salon, but take all the colors (eyeshawdow, lip, cheek, etc) that you want to use and just allow them to apply it.

My cousin is a hairdresser, so I'm hoping she will agree to do my hair (and maybe some of my BMs). I don't wear much makeup, so I'm hoping my friends can help me apply a little and it will look ok.

 

On another note, for the past few weeks I've been going to .: Renova Spa :. Spas in Mexico, Dominican Republic to check on prices for the salon at RIU and when I click on the link, it says it cannot be found. Do any of you have a price list for the salon?

Thank you! I wonder why they took the link down online?

I know, we are all such planners...too funny!

If you don't have a friend or family member that does makeup I would get a trial done at the salon and see if you like it.

 

I'm lucky because my friend that is a hair stylist is doing my hair & makeup. We are going to go shopping at Mac before we leave and do a trial here. She's also doing my hair.

 

I would definitely take advantage of the salon - it is your wedding day! I'm sure they'll do a great job. You can always designate a friend as a backup that knows something about makeup.

I was at the RIU Negril last weekend to check out the resort and to go down the street to see the place we are getting married at, The Charela Inn...Anyways, I had a trial hair run at the Renova Spa and I actually liked it and I am very picky about my hair! :) The only weird thing is she did my hair (half up and half down, with curls) but then she takes it down because she says "no one can see your bridal hairstyle before the wedding." So, I walked out of there with a huge head of curls and had to it myself for when I went out later that night. She did a good job though. Definitely bring pictures to help her know what you want though!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
