Meet Doranna De Bortoli

Today we’d like to introduce you to Doranna De Bortoli.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was born Italian but have adopted colorful Mexico as my home. I am totally in love with my profession but also very passionate about mountain hiking, ski and also scuba diving. One day, the sea began to “call me” gradually more and more, so, I decided to start a new adventure. I always thought that an advantage of the work I do is that I can take it anywhere so I can go around the world, and I complied with that feeling.

When I was 28, I decided to move to Sharm El Sheikh, on the Red Sea, Egypt. I spent there 3 great years, full of experiences between catwalks in Cairo and being a stylist in different weddings of people from Saudi Arabia (and diving a lot as my favorite leisure activity). Then I felt that it was about time to live a new experience and I moved to Mexico. I chose the beautiful Playa del Carmen within the heart of Mayan Riviera where I have lived since 2003.

I started from zero, little by little with a lot of passion, dedication and patience, believing in my possibilities and my gifts, today I have a successful company. My company today also has a passionate and warm team of senior professionals always ready to beautify bride and bridal party in full professionalism because we love what we do.

I believe that being a stylist in a gift, to empathize with people and accompany them in their change of look is a great responsibility and a tremendous joy at the same time.

This passion has led me to become a specialist in wedding hair and makeup for destination weddings here in the Maya Riviera and to achieve 27 years of international experience.

I love attending all brides personally. This is very important to me: giving them my personal touch. I assure punctuality, commitment and 100% satisfaction in every session. It is great how life contacts me with brides who embody a warm and friendly personality, which reflects how I am. I feel blessed for receiving these connections. They transform a day that could be stressful into an adventure of peace and happiness that will be a fond memory.

Do I have leisure time? Yes, and I really enjoy it! I love seeing sunrises in the ocean from my paddle board, practicing Pilates, yoga, meditation, having dinner with friends, drinking good wine. I love animals and nature. Traveling and discovering new places and especially … living, loving, and laughing.

Has it been a smooth road?
Starting in a new country is always something hard, when I arrived in Mexico I did not speak Spanish and I did not know anyone. After three months, I already spoke Spanish and I got to know in Playa del Carmen as a hair professional as I had good cutting and highlight techniques. It was not easy … but I always say that Mexico welcomed me with open arms and with much love

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I pride myself on my punctuality, commitment and complete satisfaction at every appointment.

In Playa del Carmen and surroundings, I have many clients for my specialization of always new techniques of haircut, color, highlights with the newest European techniques. I also empower my abilities by going to New York and Italy to take part in workshops for new trends every year.

As a bridal hairstylist specialist and makeup artist, with my experience here in this tropical climate since 2003 (out of my 27 years of international experience), I have found the best products and styles that will work here in surrounding areas. Throughout the Riviera Maya, Tulum, Cancun and surrounding areas my team and I have extensive experience with all types of hair, we are very much appreciated for the high-quality services of bridal airbrush makeup ad bridal hairstyle. Makeup MAC HD water resistant, and high-quality hair products humidity resistant. We also create personalized and customize packages for each bride and bridal party

It’s amazing to see big smiles of happiness when the brides look in the mirror and look happy in their big day. This emotion is priceless. And … the reviews they write say it all!

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I feel that this area always welcomes new people even though in the last few years it has saturated a bit. There is nothing more to say that the quality of the service speaks for itself.
