Master Artist - Makeup, Hair and Photography!

Racquel, you are an amazing individual. You are both personable and professional. I had an absolutely fantastic experience with you. Each look you did for me was so different. I put my complete trust in you and allowed you to create this look without a trial and it turned out amazing!! I couldn't imagine mywedding events turning out the way they did had it not been for you. Make-up and hair is a critical aspect of Indian weddings as it helps the bride shine and stand out. You helped me shine so bright, whilst still looked like myself. I am so happy I booked you and I can't wait to see you for my next event. Love always,

Racquel, "When I first met you, I was confused and nervous ... Didn't know what look to do! I trusted you blindly and I must say that I LOVED how you listened to what I wanted and did what you do best! Everyone loved all my looks! I wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you so much and I can't wait to work with you in the future! I've told you before and I'll say it again... You are truly amazing at what you do!

Racquel, I just want to say thank you for doing such an amazing job with my hair and makeup for my wedding and reception. I got so many compliments on both looks! I’m so happy that I chose you to get me ready for my big day. You made me feel special and beautiful for the day.

Not only is getting married stressful for any bride, getting married in a different province is overwhelming. I'm from Oakville, ON and was getting married in Surrey, BC in less than 6 months, first thing on the agenda to find a hair and makeup artist, being very unfamiliar with the wedding experts of BC, I asked my sister-in-law to be to send me some recommendations. I called around and made a consultation with Racquel Lacson at Studio 26 and we hit it off immediately and booked her for my three events (Engagement, Ceremony and Reception). My trips to BC were limited leading up to the wedding and I had my trial run a day before my events were to start (June 11), we spent the entire day together. I'm a stereotypical nerd, I wear glasses, have frizzy curly hair, work in research and work from home, and my lifestyle is very causal. As you can tell, makeup is not my expertise, I left everything to the expert, my one condition; I didn't want to look like I was wearing makeup. After figuring out the game plan at the trial, the three looks she created for me were unbelievable, all different in their own way. My engagement look, was me, soft and minimalistic, for the ceremony, my look was for everyone, total Indian bride, red lipstick and all and for the reception, was me, glammed up to the 10th degree. Racquel made me feel glamorous and confident in the way I looked and felt. For an out of town bride, you accommodated your schedule with mine and for that I am thankful. Racquel, thank you for making me embrace makeup and eventually eye lashes. And now this nerd is a married woman with a new found love for Michael Buble :)
