Sarah was absolutely amazing!!!! My wife and I each got our hair and make up done on the wedding day and also did a trial run a couple of days before. Sarah was fantastic. Our hair and make-up turned out perfect. My wife has very long/thick hair, so the initial plan of how she wanted to do her hair didn't work out. Sarah worked hard to figure out how to make my wife's hair look amazing. We were both so happy with the results. There is nothing worse than that feeling where you hate your hair or make-up but are either to stressed to say anything or you don't have enough time to fix it, but Sarah's professionalism and talents allowed for a stress-free wedding day. Her airbrush technique kept us looking great the entire day (even with 75% humidity).
Sarah was so nice and so sweet. You could tell she genuinely cared about making our day perfect.
We are so very grateful!!!

Sarah did a wonderful job on hair and make-up for me, my daughter and bridesmaids! She is a lovely person and was so easy and fun to work with as well. Thank you Sarah!

I was having a destination wedding in Cancun and was so afraid of hiring someone I’ve never met or had a trial with before to do my makeup on my wedding. I did a lot of searching, emailing other makeup artists and was overwhelmed. I started looking at pictures online and found Sarah and her website. Her work was exactly what I was looking for. I emailed her and she was responsive. I invited her to my Pinterest page and sent her pictures of exactly what I was looking for. She sent me ideas of other brides she’s done and made me feel confident. I put my deposit down with no worries.
When the time finally came to fly to Mexico Sarah came to my hotel the day before my wedding to do a trial. I was so happy that she could put together exactly what I was looking for. She even put my clip in extensions with out any issues.
If your planning a destination wedding or needing a makeup artist you will not be disappointed. Her and her team did an amazing job on my and my bridesmaids.

Sarah and her team are amazing! I highly recommend her services for hair and makeup. Sarah and her assistant did hair for myself, 4 bridesmaids, mother of the bride and mother of the groom..... as well as airbrush makeup for myself and 1 bridesmaid. Everyone looked gorgeous!
Sarah and her team can do any hairstyle you ask! Myself and my bridesmaids all brought pictures of hairstyles including the current trend of updos with braids and they were done perfectly. I requested a half up do with flower crown and she worked in the flower crown perfectly. They were also very patient and understanding with the moms and with all of the commotion going on in the bridal suite where we all got ready. My airbrush makeup looked incredible! I asked for a beachy glowy natural look and again Sarah nailed it. I have never felt more beautiful in my life!!

We loved Sarah and her team! I first worked with Sarah in April for a trial session before our engagement pictures were taken. She did a beautiful job and even changed my hair a little so my (now) husband wouldn't see my hair. Hair and makeup looked perfect for those pictures. For the actual wedding, Sarah and her team did the h&m for myself and 7 others (I did airbrush makeup and the rest of the group did traditional). Everyone looked SO beautiful and felt so special. I cannot thank you all enough - my mom was just in awe of how she looked and felt. I am overjoyed as I felt like the looks accentuated everyone's beauty without looking too overdone for a beach wedding. Thank you to Sarah and her team!!

We got married in Tulum and Sarah came to Nueva Vida de Ramiro on the day of our wedding to do my hair and make up. She is very talented, friendly, and patient. Her team was wonderful to work with up until the day of our wedding as well. My hair looked stunning and I felt so gorgeous in her make up. I highly recommend Sarah!

Sarah is a very talented professional. I truly enjoyed working with her and her team. From the moment I asked for a quote, to the day of the wedding, her team will treat you well and worth every penny. I highly recommend also booking her for your rehearsal dinner. She has a great package deal for trial which you can do on the rehearsal dinner night and the day of the wedding. I received quotes from other makeup artist in the area and hers was the best. She's also very friendly and easy to work with. Sarah muchas Gracias por todo y Feliz Año Nuevo!

I loved the whole process of working with Sarah and Joanna. Prior to our wedding we headed to Mexico for a trial, which turned out awesome. I was informed that Sarah would not be available for the actual day of the wedding but they made it up and also made me feel comfortable with her replacement by providing another hair trial the night of our welcome dinner. I don't wear a lot of makeup normally and using the spray application Joanna created the perfect look. Everyone raved about how great the make up looked and how it held up through the entire night, humidity, sweat and all. I highly recommend Sarah Garnier and her staff for your special event in Mexico.
Nicole · Married on 06/30/2016
Sarah and her team member Johanna were everything I wanted and expected! They made myself and all my bridesmaids look absolutely stunning! I was nervous about my hair and make up in the heat but my hair and make up didn't budge once!!! I loved it! I was glowing on my wedding day! I would recommend Sarah and her team to any bride that are doing a destination wedding in Mexico!!

We chose an external hair and makeup (H&M) from the resort, because I wanted to be able to go through a website, and be 150% confident in who I was getting to do my H&M. As a previous pageant girl I’m extremely picky about proper H&M. Destination wedding brides, make sure you check if your resort charges an external vendor fee, or if an outside vendor is allowed on the premises prior to booking your hair and makeup.
I love Sarah’s website. That’s what really levitated me to contacting her. I had narrowed it down to 5 different H&M companies. My MOH and bridesmaids, who also are very, very picky when it comes to H&M narrowed it down to 2 different companies. Sarah was one of them. In addition, my wedding photographer (who I trust dearly) who sees various H&M artists on a daily basis, also vouched for Sarah. In the end, I chose Sarah based on style, affordability, and the exceptional level of service. This is super important, if you’re an OCD bride who likes a quick response. In addition, I love that she keeps her social media up-to-date, so you can follow her work throughout the year.
Due to the high humidity, air brushing was strongly recommended not only by the makeup artist but by the photographer. So we decided to go with air brushing.
One month before our wedding, Sarah contacted me with a schedule and made sure it was exactly what I wanted.
The H&M was mind blowing. We purchased H&M for the trash the dress (TTD), a trial for our rehearsal dinner, and the day of the wedding. For the TTD, I was in an underwater cenote for over 3 hours and the H&M did not move or smudge. The pictures were were awesome.
For the day of the wedding, the H&M and eyelashes held in the 35 degree humidity and we even jumped into the pool in our wedding clothes and the H&M held. We loved the H&M, very beautiful.
Sarah and her team were always on time, and made sure we were ready on time. Brides, if you want to make sure you look perfect on your wedding day, choose Sarah.

Sarah was a delight to work with! She is very responsive - it never took her more than a few days to email me back with any questions/concerns I had. My trial was just a few days before the wedding and I was probably much more particular than most brides and she was very accommodating. I gave her pictures for both hair and makeup and everything turned out exactly how I wanted. I even asked her to use some of my preferred makeup products and she had no problem with that. While my bridesmaids were getting ready, she was happy to take my feedback to make sure everyone looked their best. She's extremely professional but also very personable. I would highly recommend her. I looked at some of the other vendors in Playa and they seemed overpriced for no reason.
Monia · Married on 04/20/2016
Everything was great about Sarah's services. From hairstyle to airbrush makeup, my bridesmaid and I have been absolutely satisfied with her great and professional work. She went to Isla Mujeres to take care of us. I highly recommend her! Thank you Sarah!

We had a destination wedding in Playa del Carmen on June 26, 2015. I found Sarah through my searches for various vendors. I emailed her immediately after I saw her website, as well as her reviews. Sarah was so helpful to me in the planning of my wedding, as well. She helped me find my wedding planner and my photographer, since I decided not to use our hotel services.
As Sarah and I planned my hair and makeup for our special day, she recommended that I create a Pinterest board. This really helps her get an idea of what you're looking for, but helps the bride as well. I also provided Sarah pictures of my family members that she would be preparing hair and makeup for, which was very helpful for her.
Sarah arrived with her assistant on the day of the wedding on time and very professional. She had provided me the timeline in advance for my family members that were going to have services. She provided makeup on my mom, daughter and soon-to-be bonus daughters and then they would have their hair done by her assistant. They were both incredible.
When it came time for my appointment, Sarah listened to everything I had to say, as well as pulled out her iPad and opened up my boards on Pinterest. She did my makeup exactly how I wanted it. I chose to have airbrush for my makeup and loved it. Sarah also did my hair for my wedding and it looked beautiful. She finished in plenty of time for touch ups if anyone needed, which nobody did, and time for me to get dressed for my wedding.
I, also, had Sarah come back to the hotel for Trash The Dress photoshoot. She applied waterproof makeup and did my hair again as beautiful as she did on the day of our wedding. Sarah came on location with us to the Cenote and would touch up my hair or makeup as needed.
I HIGHLY recommend Sarah for hair and makeup. I can't wait to send her some pictures.
Thank you, Sarah, for making my day so special, including the Cenotes.

It was such a pleasure including Sarah in our 'Trash the Dress' photo experience! She came highly recommended to us by friends who worked with her from California (where we live) and once we sent her a message, she responded promptly and had excellent communication with us!! She answered all of our questions and formed a relationship with us before we even met! The day of our photoshoot, She arrived at our hotel at 5:30 am after traveling over an hour to make sure I would look beautiful and would be ready In time! she kept me calm and in a positive mood for our once in a lifetime experience!! She has a warm welcoming friendly nature about her and she will do everything she can to make sure she meets your expectations! Just being in her presence makes you feel special:) Thank you for an unforgettable experience and being so amazing... You jumping in the cold cenote water with your makeup brush In hand just shows the type of professional and wonderful woman you are! Xo

Sarah Garnier did my hair and makeup for my wedding in Playa Del Carmen on April 05, 2014. She was very prompt, professional and friendly. I showed her a picture from Pinterest of the type of hair style I wanted and she did a an incredible job replicating it while adapting it for my hair. She also made my makeup look super natural and fresh. I went with airbrush makeup because of the weather in Playa and it held up all night - even after jumping into the pool! Plus she offered a very reasonable rate for both me and my bridesmaids. I would definitely recommend her!
Karina · Married on 03/22/2014
Sarah is incredible! I planned a small wedding ceremony and underwater photos in Rivieria Maya Mexico from the US. From the moment Sarah reached out to me via email, everything was a breeze! Not only did she make me feel extremely comfortable (she came to my hotel room to do my hair and make-up), she was extremely professional but also easy going. I had so much fun! Sarah did my hair and make-up for the wedding ceremony (which was in a cenote/cave) and also for underwater photos (for trash the dress). Sarah gave me the perfect hair style for the ceremony and then gave me a great style for the under water photos. Sarah was there for the entire 4 hours doing touch ups and making sure I looked my best. It was perfect! I would recommend Sarah to anyone. 5 stars!
Jennifer · Married on 12/30/2013
Sarah Garnier did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. Her style is so fresh, natural and suited the dress I was wearing. I've never felt so beautiful before and after seeing my hair and makeup in photos, I had the best wedding day. I had such a great experience with Sarah that my sister in law is also having Sarah do her hair and makeup for her wedding this month.
Raquel · Married on 11/27/2013
Sarah and her photographer were wonderful. Sarah was prompt, professional, charming and wonderful to work with. She my hair (matron of honor, ) and my best friends hair and make up (bride,) just beautifully. Sarah was wonderful to work with, and will recommend her to anyone!

Sarah was wonderful. She was recommended by our wedding coordinator - Destination Weddings Tulum - and she could not have been more perfect. She came to do a trial run of my hair and makeup before the rehearsal dinner, and smartly steered me away from the original hairstyle I wanted (down, wavy), in favor of a soft, low side-bun. It worked so well in the sticky humidity of November in Tulum. She did a great job with make-up, and came well-equipped with everything you'd ever need, including false eyelashes. So much fun. The day of my wedding she did hair and make-up for me, my sister, my mom, stepmom, and mom-in-law. Everyone looked and felt gorgeous (until midnight when several hours on the sweaty dancefloor had everyone looking like they'd jumped in the ocean). But even after putting the hair and makeup to the ultimate test, we still looked pretty good. Best part! Sarah makes her own headbands and hair accessories, and had one with her that exactly matched my dress and really made the look. I'd planned on wearing fresh flowers, but her band was actually the thing I was missing. Can't recommend her enough!!
