How to Communicate with Your Destination Wedding Hairstylist

Planning a destination wedding in Mexico brings visions of sandy beaches, palm trees, and unforgettable moments of romance. With the ocean breeze caressing your perfectly coiffed locks and the sun kissing your impeccable makeup and glowing skin in just the right way of course!

Amidst the excitement of planning your big day, it is really important to have effective communication with your destination wedding hairstylist and makeup team. Throughout the planning process leading up to your dream wedding in the Riviera Maya, ensuring clear and open communication with your vendors is vital. The team at Doranna Hairstylist and Makeup is always delighted to meet new brides, here are some tips to communicate your desires with us.

Preparation Before Reaching Out: What’s Your Bridal Fantasy?

Before you even think about reaching out to potential destination wedding hairstylists, take some time to gather inspiration. Build a “My Fantasy Wedding HairPinterest board filled with swoon-worthy hairstyles, save the destination wedding TikToks that catch your eye, and collect those Instagram posts with bridal looks that excite you. Consider your wedding venue, dress style, and overall theme when envisioning your perfect hairstyle. Whether you’re dreaming of loose waves cascading down your back or an elegant updo adorned with delicate flowers, or you simply can’t decide and have a million ideas, dream big and come to us with all your digital albums and we can make magic happen together.

Research: Finding the Right Destination Wedding Hairstylist

Finding the ideal hairstylist for your destination wedding in Mexico is no small task. Start by reading reviews and testimonials from past clients to get a sense of their expertise and professionalism. When researching potential hairstylists, your top priority is finding those with experience in destination weddings, as they’ll understand the unique challenges and considerations that come with styling hair in different climates and locations. Look through their portfolios on social media to “feel their vibe” and ensure their style aligns with your vision for your wedding day look.

Reach Out: Making the First Connection

Once you’ve found a destination wedding hairstylist that piques your interest, it’s time to reach out and make that first connection. Email, phone, or social media, whatever your preference, connect with the team at Doranna Hairstylist to introduce yourself and tell us about your vision. Share details about your wedding date and location, and don’t hesitate to ask any initial questions you may have. This is the start of a collaborative and creative journey, so don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through, be yourself!

Clear Communication: Articulating Your Bridal Vision

Effective communication with all your wedding vendors is the key to planning a wedding from a distance. When communicating with your destination wedding hairstylist, be as specific as possible about your vision for your hairstyle. Provide details about your hair length, texture, and any preferred accessories or embellishments. If you have specific hairstyle inspiration photos, don’t hesitate to share them, it’s often easier to show rather than tell when it comes to articulating your vision.

Establishing Expectations: Setting a Wedding Day Timeline for Beauty

As you begin to plan your hair and makeup trials and wedding day timeline, we’ll discuss specific scheduling details with you. Let us know about your travel plans, pre-wedding events, and any other factors that may impact your hairstyling needs. We will work with you to set up a timeline for your hair trials and confirm the logistics for the wedding day, including the timing and location of hairstyling and makeup services. Clear expectations and a well-defined timeline will ensure a smooth and stress-free experience for both you and your style team.

Feedback and Collaboration: Working Together

Embrace the collaborative nature of working with a beauty team that is really there to listen. Don’t be afraid to provide feedback and communicate openly about what you love and what you’d like to adjust when you do hair and makeup trials. Your hairstylist is there to bring your vision to life, so be vocal about your likes, dislikes, and any changes you’d like to make. Remember, it’s all about working together to create the perfect bridal look that makes you feel gorgeous and confident.

Final Touches: Confirming Details

As your destination wedding day approaches, it’s essential to confirm all the details with your beauty team. Double-check your chosen hairstyle and makeup plan, timing, location, and any additional services you may need. Maintain open communication leading up to the wedding day, addressing any last-minute changes or concerns that may arise. 

We’ll set up a dedicated Whatsapp chat with the team at Doranna Hairstylist so we are all on the same page. Trust in the expertise of your destination wedding hairstylist and MUAs (makeup artists), knowing that we are dedicated to ensuring you look and feel your best on this important occasion.
