This is a collection from last year. Really want to share this album because Estee made all her hair accessories which I though is awesome. As a makeup artist, I should be more crafty and do some hair accessories myself but I just can’t bring myself to go through the effort. So I really admire Estee’s creativity and effort.
She did this beautiful feather clip that worked like a feathery hairband. I love the effect it has on the whole look with a low loose chignon. She took out the pins and pin her hair to a hair let down hairdo for her 2nd look.

Mrs Mitsue Okamoto is from Japan. I love the demeanor of the Japanese. Ever so polite and understanding. She wanted an elegant look (as the cute one will be done in Japan) so we had a soft updo completed with an array of flowers. She doesn’t smile for pictures though she is really cute and sweet but I guess it brings out a different feel.
Braids half let down hairdo for a sweet look. Looks angelic right?
High Bun and loose fringe for a sophisticated look

At first it is meant to be just a short trip for rest and relax and also a chance for me to stock up my stuff. However, my mum is not feeling well so I am extending my stay in Taiwan till the end of August to be with her.
During this period, a few things to note:
1. Email your enquires please. Calls and SMS very expensive :(
2. I will check my email almost everyday besides weekends as usual. Do be patience with me.
3. Confirmation of time slots via online deposit will still continue and I will confirm if I have received your deposit via email. However I can only scan the receipt to you when I return to Singapore. Sorry about that. Rest assured the timeslots will be saved for you once I receive the deposit.
I guess this is all. I also like to thank my brides’ understanding of my situation and readily agree to postpone their trials to a later date. Really appreciate your help :)
I am writing this post with an angry and disappointed heart. This is something so simple, why is it so hard to follow?
I provide hair accessories and hair extensions for my brides so that they can look gorgeous on their wedding day. Not everyone are blessed with voluminous amount of hair which makes hairstyling result so much prettier. Not everyone has hair that can hold curls in Singapore’s humidity and heat. Not every bridal studio provides decent hair accessories that are shiny and not delicate. Why? Because it cost alot. Hair extensions wear out after at most 10 times. Hair accessories lost its shine after being hair-sprayed for a few times.
But, I really went through the effort to provide the best I could for my brides. Every time I go back to Taiwan, I spend huge amount of time searching for the accessories that I think my brides will like and replenish all my stocks. Then I have to luge them back to Singapore again.
All I ask if that for the brides to send the hair accessories loaned to me back via registered mail. Just this small effort I ask from you. I do not even care about the deposit amount that will be forfeited if my accessories are lost because once lost, I know I can never buy back the same design anymore. And I have to wait till the next Taiwan trip before I can replenish my stocks. The time wasted kills me.
So I have to change my terms and conditions again:
– For every accessory loaned, a deposit of SGD 100 will be required. Deposit will be fully refundable upon receiving the accessory in its original condition. Deposit will be forfeited and a full payment of the cost price of the hair accessory will be chargeable for failure to comply with this condition.
– I only accept return of hair accessories via Registered mail only. If accessories are received via regular mail, SGD50 will be forfeited. If accessories are damaged or lost through regular mail, the full sum deposit will be forfeited.
A makeup artist friend once ask me why I have to bring hair accessories for the brides. She never did. That is because I love to give my brides more options. I care to.
I have brides who know they are too busy to return the hair accessories to me and they opted not to use mine. I am more than happy to do that. If you belong to this group, do tell me. Or else, let’s not make lovely-hardworking Cleo’s blood boils when she sees her hair accessories in regular mail or worst never to see it again.
I think nothing needs to be said when you see the pictures. Bennie is a gorgeous girl with a oh-so-friendly disposition. She definitely knows what looks great on her and her confidence allows her to glow from within.
She has a princess inspired hairdo and a really natural makeup for her 1st march in. A side chignon for her second march in and only a tad more heavier eye makeup for the night to match her sexy red cheongsam. I would never forget Bennie looking at me and asked ” 这样漂亮吗?” So direct yet so cute. My heart went “awww， 当然漂亮啊“。
This picture simply coz I think it looks amazing.
Thank you Ben for being so lovely and easy to work with :)

I was lucky to do both Xinrong’s pre wedding and actual day. She did not have a conventional wedding gown which I thought was really cool. For her actual day, there was a total of 3 looks. For her actual day morning, we had a low Korea hairdo to go with her toga wedding gown. For her 1st march in, we had braids let down hairdo for a Grecian inspired look. For the last march in, it is a side chignon with a large feather accessory also for a Grecian romantic look.

You will know the pictures will turn out different when you have a couple that is so unconventional. Angie claimed to Joseph and I that she is not our everyday-bride. I only realized the extent when I saw her wedding pictures. I actually LOL looking through her album.
Angie wore a Greek goddess inspired gown and she wanted something less formal. We went for a loose side chignon for a causal feel and loose held hair to frame her face nicely. Makeup is kept natural for a radiant look. Love how Joseph captured the playfulness of the couple. Enjoy the pictures :)

Min Li for her ROM and lunch reception at Sentosa. A different hairdo with the same bridal gown creates a whole different look for her. A classy top bun with a low veil for a more elegant march in. For her makeup it is kept rosy to match her radiant smile.
Min Li for her actual day morning. A braided updo with volume for a youthful and playful look. The best part is that braids looks great without any hair accessories. A simple veil completes the look. Makeup is kept fresh and rosy to complement her great smile.
