I was looking for a salon that does wedding hair and makeup and after many searches, I found Bridal Secretary. I reached out to Betty (the owner of the salon) back in February 2020 with my inquiries and we decided to book a consultation for the following week. We had a thorough consultation regarding what this whole thing entails and I went home, talked it over with my bridal party and scheduled one of Bettys girls for May 10th 2020. By the time April came along, there was no way I could get married with all the immediate family (I was 5, my fianc was 6 and plus a priest, that was 12 people which was over the 10 people policy limit at that time) so I cancelled everything and reconnected with Betty in August 2020.Since I had already put in my deposit back in March 2020, I was able to make a last minute booking. I booked a hair and makeup trial with one of her girls for late September. The hair and MUA artist that did my hair and makeup for the trial was named Candy and she knows what shes doing: I had shoulder length hair and I didnt know what to do or how to style it but she did: hot rollers, never had that before but my hair came out beautifully. If you show her examples of hairstyles, Candy does a great job of replicating it! Unfortunately, after my hair and makeup trial, I came home and washed the makeup off a few hours after. I think I had a slight allergic reaction to the makeup which was not her fault because while she was applying the makeup, my skin was fine, it was just after I removed all the makeup, my skin was a little red and patchy but nothing like some aloe vera to help with the healing process. On October 10th 2020, the day of my wedding, Candy did my hair (while taking precautions during this uncertain time) while I did my own makeup. She did a wonderful job and the tiara stayed in the place the entire time (was concerned it might slip off), but I completely forgot about it, until I had to take it off; I looked like a princess! =DBoth Betty and Candy were really nice, attentive and accommodating and I would recommend her to close family and friends!
Betty was absolutely fantastic! She was extremely accommodating with my shifting of dates and times during the COVID-19 pandemic and she took all precautions to ensure herself and her clients were following safe infection control precautions. My makeup and hair lasted all day and looked stunning in my photos. Her hair accessories were also all so beautiful and high quality. She gave so many tips and helpful suggestions during the trial. She's friendly and speaks English and Cantonese perfectly which was a plus for my mom who can't speak English. I would not hesitate to hire Betty again for future events.
On Saturday, November 23, 2019, my husband and I hosted our wedding banquet with friends and family. I asked Betty from Bridal Secretary to be my make up artist and hair stylist. This wasn't the first time I had worked with Bridal Secretary and both times, I was impressed by Bridal Secretary's service!Betty and her team's work is beyond my expectations and they deliver timely responses (to my many questions), beautiful art, and excellent services. Because of Betty's experience in the wedding industry, she was able to provide me valuable advice on the type of hairstyle and accessories that would pair nicely with my dresses (both Chinese and Western styles). By the way, she speaks fluent English, Mandarin and Cantonese (so if you're a CBC like me, she will understand you).Betty's styling of make-up and hair is absolutely elegant and I'm glad to note that they look even better in pictures that document the day (memory becomes hazy over time)! Bridal Secretary's level of detail and care put towards meeting/exceeding their clients' expectations is a reassuring feeling and we know we are in capable hands during these important events.On the day of the wedding banquet, my mom, sister, friend, and I had our hair/makeup done at their studio. Their studio is clean and professional looking (they also offer to complete their work on site). Betty and one other makeup/hair stylist were extremely punctual and completed all their work ahead of schedule by 30 minutes which is a huge benefit for wedding scheduling.Loved that we chose Bridal Secretary's service and can't recommend enough their expertise in hair and makeup department. They aren't just professionals for wedding functions but also MUA/hairstylist for TV shows and other larger events which speaks to their versatility and knowledge in the makeup/hairstyling field.
Betty and her team at Bridal Secretary was highly recommended by my friend who also hired their services for her wedding. Needless to say, I 100% agree with her recommendation and would do the same for any future brides or anyone looking for professional makeovers or styling. If you have a chance, book Betty as your main stylist! Booking: Betty's communication with her clients is excellent. She is reachable by email, Facebook, instagram, etc. and her replies are always efficient. I booked my bridal makeup services with her through email without hassle. I took advantage of their Valentine's day promotion and had a piece of accessory included with my package. The price was reasonable and was able to include styling for my bridesmaids and my mother. Pre-event Consultation: Betty has great attention to details . She asked for vendor contacts and sample work so she can see the style of photography to match the looks. She considers your dress designs and theme as well. The accessories rental are all available at her studio for you to pick and she is flexible and makes great recommendations. A detailed schedule and skin care tips are shared so everyone can get ready for the big day ahead of time. I did not do a trial with Betty but her team pulled through all the looks with ease. Day-of Service: Team arrived before the scheduled time and was set up and ready to go within minutes. The team worked together so transition was smooth. Great tips were given as well as an emergency touch-up kit. She also helped me adjust my dress to make me feel grounded and ready for the hectic day. I had the team come on-site. The travel fee was minimal and I think it's worth the money spent. All the makeup is included, false lashes were included, and airbrushing is available for a small fee. My makeup stayed in tact for the day with no problems! Highly recommend this team for any styling / beauty needs!
Betty at Bridal Secretary is the best choice and I am confident it is worth every dollar. The value you are getting is for sure more than the dollars you have spent here! Betty is very skillful, professional, very friendly, approachable, and flexible. The make up and style finalization consultation meeting before the wedding was very fun and stress-free. Betty looked at my dresses and run down for the day and started to give me ideas on the hair styles and make up I could have. She also tried to incorporate different elements and various looks for me so that each style would be unique and would look so much better on photos. All of my guests were wowed by the different styles and how they beautifully suit me. Lots of compliments and every bride deserves to look the most beautiful on the wedding day! Betty is the choice! Betty has really great experience and she shared all of the valuable tips, advice and recommendation. She is sincere and passionate. Trust me, you don't need more stress from dealing with wedding vendors. Betty is totally reliable, punctual, efficient, caring and very detailed-oriented. Not only does she care my look and make up for the day, she also took care of my bridal party and my family. She worked with the Emcee and on site coordinator as well throughout the night to make sure everything goes smoothly. I would say she is the general manager for behind the scene. Betty is very experienced but her styles would never go outdated. She kept up with the most trendy looks with a personal touch to make it unique! The wedding accessories are gorgeous, and high quality and they enhanced my wedding dress and evening gown to the next level. I am really pleased with the service and experience! Her crew is also excellent. I love the make up and hair they have done for my bridesmaids, mom, cousins and aunties. Betty is a trust-worthy friend, not just a vendor/make up artist!
