How to find the best hairdressers and beauty salons on the island.
Our wedding took part in Kalymnos the 23rd of June 2018, and a part of the preparation process was to find the best place for Christina to have her bridal hair, makeup and nails done.
Thanks to our Greek family, Christina’s cousin Eirini helped her find the perfect hairdresser, makeup artist and nail technician for her bridal hair and makeup.
M & P Hair and Beauty Salon by Maria and Petroula Poniri
Eirini lives in Kalymnos all year around and she is friends with the two sisters, Petroula and Maria Poniri.
The Poniri sisters own the hair, makeup and nail salon called M & P Hair and Beauty Salon. They are always very busy – and for good reason. They do a fantastic job! Maria is the hairdresser while Petroula is a makeup artist and nail technician.
Eirini gave us their information, and through Facebook we were able to book three different appointments: One day was for a makeup and hair “trial”, where the purpose was to decide and prepare for the look, Christina wanted on her big day. Another appointment was for the nails (which happened on the day before the wedding), and then the third time was on the actual wedding day.
The process was easy every step of the way. Christina literally showed Maria and Petroula some pictures she had saved from Pinterest, and they immediately understood what she wanted. The result turned out great and Christina’s hair, makeup and nails looked almost identical to how it had looked on the inspirational pictures. Christina wanted hombre French manicure nails, a natural makeup and a braid on the side that went into a loose bun with her veil on top. (George was also very happy with the result, when he finally saw his bride) 😉
More hairdressers and beauty salons in Kalymnos
Besides M & P Hair and Beauty Salon, there are many other places in Kalymnos that provide beauty services like makeup, hair, nails and facial treatments for you big day.
We can’t give you our personal reviews on all of them, but you can see pictures and read reviews on their Facebook pages. Many of the hairdressers also do makeup or work with makeup artists on the island, so you can get your hair and makeup (and probably also your nails) done at the same place.
