Meet the Wedding Experts | Doranna Hairstylist Riviera Maya

In my professional career, I’ve met some pretty amazing people and today I’m honored to write about Doranna Hairstylist Riviera Maya, Mexico.

This intuitive Italian hair & makeup artist was born in the Provincia de Treviso, near Venecia but is now a happy and proud Mexican with a tan and a profound love for the Mexican Caribbean sea and tacos!!!

At a young age, Doranna’s teachers knew she had a gift for beauty, aesthetics, and art. After being admitted to an exclusive Hairstylist School in Italy, she was ecstatic to have found her true passion in life!! Her face literally lights up as she talks about it.

Following her heart, she landed in Mexico 15 years ago and has called the Riviera Maya HOME since then. She simply fell in love with its natural beauty, the locals, the food and the incredible opportunity to work with destination brides on the most important day of their lives.

Her superpower is a well-developed eye for aesthetics. “I just need to see the bride and the dress to create a timeless, elegant and beautiful look,” Doranna says. She defines her style as natural and romantic.

Interesting facts about Doranna:

  • Before moving to Mexico, she lived 3 years in Egypt where she worked at a salon and explored the depths of the Red Sea. Yes, she’s also an avid diver.
  • Every morning she wakes up giving Thanks for a new day and all the blessings in her life; while she drinks a good cup of coffee and cuddles her cats.
  • When she’s not working, Doranna can be found enjoying remote natural places, doing yoga or contemplating the ocean on her paddle board. She feels most connected when she’s close to nature, it’s where she goes to re-charge her superpowers.
  • Favorite food: Tacos and avocado (she loves El Fogon).

  • She never gets bored of her job!! It’s always an opportunity to give her best!
