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!"

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.

"experience counts!"

Just ran into Marjie last week on my trip to Sayulita. I reminded her that she had done my hair for my wedding fourteen years ago and the advice she gave to me then still holds true for whenever I want to look my best. "drink twice as much water as you would for 4 days leading up to the big day and exfoliate-including your lips". I'm so glad that Marjie is still doing hair, she is incredible, very pro and knows what she is doing. Fortunate for any brides in Sayulita to have this kind of experience!

Marjie is Amazing!!!

Marjie did hair/makeup for me, my sister, and my mother on my wedding day and all three of us looked beautiful!! She was very knowledgeable about hair/makeup in Sayulita and how to make it hold up in the heat and humidity. At the consultation meeting we had before the wedding, Marjie asked some very specific questions that helped her and me figure out exactly the look I wanted for the big day. She discussed styles and colors with me gauging my taste and comfort level with different looks. I left this meeting feeling very confident that she was going to do a great job. On the wedding day, Marjie helped prepare me both mentally and physically by reminding me to take care of myself and keeping me calm with great conversation. She is an amazing woman! If I had to do it again, Marjie would be my first choice. She will absolutely help you look and feel your best!! Thanks!

More than I could have asked for..

Marjie and her staff were incredible. I asked Marjie to do a trial run of hair and makeup for our welcome party and I looked stunning. The wedding day makeup was absolutely perfect. She nailed my style and my five bridesmaids styles. Her prep directions were spot on so our faces were ready for the big day. Thank you so much Marjie!!! I highly recommenced you.

Relaxed, calm and a true professional

Rebecca was our stylist at my wedding this past week and she took the time to see what look I was going for and built it from there. The trial run put me at ease and was well worth it so my Frieda Kahlo inspired hair could be executed in time on the day of. She also took great care to do 4 other women. There were a few mini disasters that were happening around us, but Rebecca was instrumental in keeping the inner sanctum calm and relaxed in the hours leading up to the wedding. My hair was perfect and I received tons of compliments. I would love to do it all over again!

Perfect Wedding Hair and Makeup

My hair stylist and makeup artist was Rebecca from Funky Diva Hair Design. Rebecca was very professional and a pleasure to be around. I met her a couple of days before my wedding to show her some photos and to talk about my ideal "look". She took the time to truly get to know me and I immediately felt at ease and knew I made the right decision to work with her. She made me feel very calm and relaxed on my wedding day and my hair and makeup was better than I could have imagined. My hair and makeup stayed in place all night – even in the heat and humidity. I felt beautiful and confident on my wedding day and highly recommend Funky Diva Hair Design.

My hair & makeup looked amazing!

I got married in Sayulita on 11/16/2013. Marjie did my hair and makeup (also did the hair and makeup of my bridesmaids, mother and mother in law) and she did an amazing job. I felt and looked beautiful! Starting the makeup session I was stressed due to last minute wedding preparations. Marjie poured me a cocktail, played some music and helped us order food while doing my hair and makeup. By the time we finished I was feeling completely relaxed and happy. I would highly reccommend her!!!

Marjie has a gift for highlighting and enhancing your natural beauty!

Marjie is absolutely wonderful! I truly felt like the most gorgeous version of myself on my wedding day. Marjie brought my vision to life in a more beautiful way than I could have imagined. She and Rebecca also made my ”girls” (bridesmaids, mom, and mother-in-law) look absolutely stunning, and my flower girl thought she was a princess after getting her hair and "make-up" done. They are all still talking about it four months later. Not only did Marjie and Rebecca beautify everyone, they also created such a fun and relaxing atmosphere, which was my goal for the day. My family and I can't stop raving about you!!

Amazing hair, make-up and overall experience

I was fortunate to meet Funky Diva Hair Design through my wedding coordinator Yasmin. Marjie and Rebecca were so awesome and really know what they are doing. I had a test hair and makeup session a few months before the wedding and I was really happy but then when it came time for the wedding it was at least 20 degrees warmer outside. They did me a huge favor recommending against my original hair down in back design and did a 2nd test to come up with something new that would not be a surprise on wedding day. They really brought great ideas to the table and things I have never seen before and would not have suggested myself. When it came to wedding day, they also did an amazing day with make-up not just for me but for my entire wedding party. They setup a great schedule to fit everyone in without feeling rushed, made the time hanging out relaxing and fun and on top of it all hid the black eye I got in the morning so no one at the wedding had any idea. They can deal with all the random stress of a wedding and turn it into the best day ever without showing any stress throughout the day. I would highly recommend Marjie, Rebecca or anyone else that these ladies serve up.

Amazing service! Helped my wedding day vision become a reality!

I can't say enough good things about Marjie and her incredible service. From the moment we met at the consultation, she connected right away with the vibe of our wedding and helped me put into words the vision I had in my head of how I wanted to look. She was able to wave her magical makeup wand and help me feel like a beautiful beachy bride. So much fun! Not only did she do our hair and makeup, she was full of tips on how to really take in the whole day, how to relax and feel my best, and more. Much love to Marjie; I wholeheartedly recommend her services!
