Hair & Make Up at Paradisus Punta Cana

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had their hair/make up down at the paradisus punta cana?!

 

My wedding is in about 3 weeks there and I planned on having them do my hair and make up.

I have about 20 pictures of the way I want my hair to look. I had someone do a "trail run" for me and took pictures. 

 

My make up is whats freaking me out! Has anyone been married here or been to a wedding where they know the bride used the resort spa?

 

HELPPPPP !!!!!!!

I was married there in Nov 2012, had my hair and makeup done as well as the moms'  and 4 bridesmaids hair and makeup.  Everyone looked great.  I have long thick coarse hair and had my hair blown out the evening before the wedding which worked out great - they wouldn't have been able to blow out my hair and style it AND do makeup with everyone else they had that morning.  However, the moms and bridesmaids just showed up with their hair already washed and dried and the stylists were able to easily style it.  My mother in law wasn't crazy about the updo they did for her, but as soon as she voiced it they quickly re-designed it with no prob and a smile on their faces.  We booked the Bridal Suite for the mornign of the wedding and had 3 stylists for a total of 8 girls getting ready (including myself). 

 

I had been to the PPC the year prior when I was doing site visits and trying to pick a resort for our wedding so I had the advantage of knowing what to watch out for.  When I was there in Dec 2011 during my site visit I visited the spa and knew right away that I would not want to use their makeup b/c of the colors and quality.  BUT...I also knew that b/c I have darker skin and wanted to use high quality products that would match my skin tone.  So, a few days before we left to DR for the wedding, I went to a MAC makeup store (I only use MAC or NARS product anyway), and had them do a bridal makeup look for me, I purchased all the products, and they gave me diagrams showing exactly what they did.  This way, when the actual wedding day came, I pulled out all my makeup and diagrams and they were able to mirror almost exactly what the trial run looked like back home.  I also brought additional things like primer, setting spray, etc. to make the products last longer through the hot humid weather which is not something the resort stylists had on hand.  My mother in law and some of the bridesmaids have fair skin and they used the products that the resort stylists had onhand and just supplmented it with my primers and setting spray.  

 

The resort stylists did tell me that it was a good idea that I brought my own makeup b/c it was a higher quality product and already matched my skin tone perfectly.  Their products are good too, don't get me wrong.  

 

Hope this helps.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
