Funky Diva Hair Design Sayulita/Whistler


Marjie Martini, is a hair stylist/makeup artist from Whistler, Canada, who specializes in Summer weddings in Whistler and Tropical weddings in Sayulita in the winter. She has specialized in ensuite wedding hair and makeup for over 18 years. Marjie has helped over 1000 brides look fabulous on their wedding day. Her goal is create a look that is natural and comfortable for the bride but adds just the right amount of elegance and polish. She provides all the services ensuite for the ease and comfort of the bride and bridal party, ensuring that the preparation process is stress free and fun. Marjory’s brides have been quoted in saying that “I have never felt or looked as good as I did after Marjory did my hair and makeup for my wedding.”

The Consultation
The purpose of the one hour consultation is to create the plan for the perfect wedding day. At the consultation we will discuss the specifics of the day, the bride’s personality and likes and dislikes, dress and accessories and what the bride’s ideal look is. Upon leaving the bride will be given a list and timeline of all the necessary things she will need to do and bring with her prior to the wedding. The consultation is designed so that the stress of the preparation process is removed and any concerns of the bride’s appearance are dissolved.

Trial Runs: they are only recommend trials for brides that are unsure of whether they want their hair up or down on the day of the wedding. A trial is the option of the bride if she is unsure of her look after the consultation. Trials should be done with in 4 weeks of the wedding. (Please note that trials are an additional fee)

My favorite thing about Marjie’s services is that she wants you to actually look like YOU. She will stay within your comfort zone so that you look YOUR best and feel great. She also makes sure you’re set up for the entire day and evening. She was totally great.

Marjie made our experience very enjoyable. We were all very laid back & I felt like it was just a fun girls-day (with Marjie included). I really liked the fact that she will fist ask you what type of style you prefer, & then go with that (whether it was hair or makeup), rather than just doing it her way. I would highly recommend her.

Using Marjie for Hair and Makeup on my Wedding Day was the best decision I made. It was so relaxing to have her come to where I was getting ready, and help me to look perfect for the day. She asked questions about how I would normally do my hair and make-up so that for the actual Wedding Day I still felt natural and comfortable. She was very professional and her expertise kept the bridal party and me on schedule. I felt beautiful all day and night thanks to Marjie!!

"The two most important things on my wedding day were how I felt and being with my friends and family.  Marjie took care of the first part and made me feel like a movie star. I was at ease before she even started because her consultation was so detailed!  I've had my hair and makeup done more times than I would like to count, and I can honestly say that Marjie was leaps and bounds above what I had ever experienced. She made my Mom and my flower girl look amazing as well.  We all fell in love with her and I would highly recommend her!"

Wonderful experience!!!
I had the pleasure of using Marjie for hair and makeup for our Sayulita wedding. She is absolutely wonderful! From the consultation prior to the wedding, to the emails back and forth, to the excellent job she did on the day. She was relaxed, fun and a true gem to work with. Everyone was SO happy with their end look! I would 100% recommend her!!!

Wonderful service
Marjie was professional and so helpful in every aspect. She did a great job with the brides hair and make up and the younger ones long hair - the Mums looked fabulous as well. It was really nice having someone who knows all about wedding day preparations and who went the extra mile. Marjie put us all at ease.

Extremely Talented, and such a Lovely Person. Marjie is the BEST!
My entire experience with Funky Diva was simply amazing. We met over a year ago before my engagement photo shoot, where we discussed my "vision" for how I wanted to look on my wedding day. Marjie asked some great questions and really got to understand exactly what I was comfortable with. We kept in touch throughout the year, with Marjie giving super helpful tips on accessories for my dress and for my wedding group.

Marjie made me feel more beautiful than I've ever felt in my life for both my engagement photos and my wedding day in Sayulita. I was full of confidence, and so very happy. The day/night were absolutely perfect, and not having to worry about hair falling out or make-up being uncomfortable or running was so important. I danced the night away at our wedding, and my hair and makeup STILL looked perfect when we finally got home around 4am!

Not only is Marjie an amazing hair and makeup artist, but she is also a lovely person and was so kind and accommodating to my entire wedding group. All of the girls and moms adored her, her sense of humour and her positive energy. She really helped to put the butterflies at ease and get us all excited for the day.

Thank you, Marjie!!

Just Great!!
Marjie did an amazing job for my Valentines day wedding!
I traveled from Washington DC to Sayulita and the distance was a non issue.
She was responsive via email, was flexible on timing for the day of and did 5 peoples hair stress free! She even went above and beyond, walking around the house picking fresh flowers for my hair:) If you are looking to get your hair done for an event Marjie is highly recommended by me!

Loved working with Marjie!
I recently got married in Sayulita and hired Marjie to do my hair and makeup for both my welcome party and wedding. I'm in the wedding industry myself so was quite particular about everything and was so happy to have Marjie as part of my little wedding team. Not only was she prompt with her communication but she understood what I wanted and listened to all my needs. I hired her to stay on after the ceremony for touch-ups during photos etc. and would highly recommend that to other brides! She was there to fix my dress, re-apply my lipstick and blot all of our skin so we weren't sweaty in the hot Mexican sun. She was great!

Highly recommended :)

Amazing Job!
Rebecca did such an amazing job with my hair! I received so many compliments from everyone. Also, I was so glad that that she suggested I put my hair up for the reception because the weather was very warm that evening. She was such a pleasure to work with - very easy going. Rebecca did a fantastic job with my bridesmaids' hair and makeup too! They looked so pretty and their makeup looked so natural. I highly recommend Funky Diva Hair Design for your wedding!

Marjie recently did my hair and make-up for my wedding and she did an amazing job.

She also has a gift of making you feel so relaxed the day of the wedding which was much appreciated! Thank you Marjie for your hard work and incredible ability to make me feel like the most beautiful bride!

Marjie is just the best!
As well as being my go to stylist for every day, Marjie worked her magic on myself, my mom, sisters and besties for my wedding day. She nailed it! From the initial consult I felt completely at ease as she really is more than a stylist, she is a bridal coach helping you execute your vision from head to toe! She is fun, punctual and very efficient. She has tons of ideas and although she adds her creative flair she keeps you looking like you (just better!!) I would recommend her to anyone I know and even those I don't!

Marji did the hair (and some makeup) for my wedding. There was myself, 4 bridesmaids and 2 mothers. I cannot give enough praise to Marji. Everyone looked amazing and we got compliments all night. Marji was so professional as well as very fast. She single handedly got all of us ready well ahead of time. She was also very equipped having extra safety pins on hand (for a wardrobe malfunction) as well as lots of advice and helping us have a good couple of giggles. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
