Lois Swanson Travel Tips

Donna Smith has certainly made a name for herself as a Hairdresser in Barbados with both, Sass Beauty Salon, at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel and her Mobile Service, Donna is in high demand.

Trained at Vidal Sassoon in London, and over her 30 years of experience, Donna has worked at the world renowned Sandy Lane Resort, and has been privileged to meet and work with many fantastic people from all over the world including Bill and Hilary Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Simon Cowell, Ryan Seacrest, Pavarotti and Michael Flatley to name a few.

Sass Beauty Salon, located at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel on the west coast of Barbados has undoubtably become one of the more prestigious and sought after salons on the island. Donna has worked with many celebrity weddings including Tiger Woods and with fashion shows, photo shoots, TV and press advertising, stage and movies locally, regionally and internationally.

Donna Smith is frequently commissioned to travel with her clients, whether it is a short break to a far away destination or a month long expedition or a luxurious yacht or safari. Donna is always willing to literally go the extra mile for her clients, as their personal hairdresser.

Donna does fantastic work.  Be sure to check out her website where you can see some of the beautiful hair styles she has created.  She has some beautiful brides and also Donna has a mobile service and can come to your location.  I highly recommend her.


While we were in Barbados during October 2009, we decided we wanted some professional photos taken of us as something special to remember our 35th wedding anniversary.  We reviewed several photographers and decided upon Stuart Tippleston for the job.  We made arrangements for him to meet us at our hotel, The Coral Reef Club, and asked him to shoot several casual pictures of us around the resort.

We were in for a wonderful surprise when we saw the finished work.  Stuart was very personable and easy to talk with.  We explained our desires, and he set about finding perfect settings around the resort to capture our special moments.  He did a fantastic job and I’m displaying some of his work here.

He is available to take pictures of special moments like this, or for any special occasion - including Weddings.  

Please check out his website at:  
www.barbados-photography.comto see more of his work and for pricing.

If you mention this website, Stuart will offer a complimentary 8” x 10” print to any direct bookings made from my website.  When you enquire, please mention Barbadostips to get this print.

PHOTOS OF BEACH DINING:  We decided we wanted some special pictures taken of us the evening we dined on the beach at Mullins Restaurant (before it became Mullins Bar), so we contacted Stuart Tippleston once again.  He took some great shots of our special, romantic evening.
