General Info


My team and I have on thing in common; we all left beauty school loving updos and makeup more than cuts and coloring. Our teachers told us that we couldn't make a living "just doing weddings" but guess what? Thanks to California's year-round wedding season and the hundreds of brides who put their trust into us every year we are living our dreams! We can't believe how lucky we are which is why we show up early and give each wedding our all. Check out our reviews to see the ways in which we go the extra mile.

All of our team members are estheticians or cosmetologists and hold current licenses with the California State Board so you will be in safe (and clean) hands. Why does this matter? Well, we will be getting up close and personal with your eyes and mouths and the last thing you want to take with you on your honeymoon is a nasty infection. Self-taught makeup artists might be very talented but they haven't been trained in infection control procedures. It's not worth the risk.

In addition to all of the standard professional training that we have received I am very proud that as an airbrush makeup instructor and spokesperson for a major makeup company, I have been able to give my team a level of specialized airbrush makeup training that none of our competitors can match. If you are still not convinced then please feel free to browse our photos and reviews on TheKnot.com (where we are three time Best of Weddings Award winners), Yelp and Facebook. We put our heart and soul into this and we think you will notice the difference.

As well as offering flawless beauty makeup we are able to offer the following services:

  • Severe Acne Coverage
  • Waterproof Scar and Tattoo Cover
  • Vitiligo Cover
  • Hair Painting to camouflage roots/grays
  • Thickening of thin/bald spots using fibers

The great news is that in spite of all of the extra care and training that we believe we bring to the table our pricing is actually the same or lower than most of our competitors. Why? Because we are lucky enough to be kept so busy, year round.

We don't think it's fair that brides are always charged more for their hair and makeup so our services are the same price for everyone. Of course we spend a little extra time and attention on your look but it's just our thank you for letting us be a part of your big day.

Please contact us if you have any questions or special requests we are always happy to talk weddings!

    Amazing Customer Service

    Secret Salon was a breeze to work with!! They did an amazing job with our hair and makeup and were super flexible with my girls changing their minds on what services they wanted. The makeup trial process was great, really helped me to see what I was envisioning for my wedding makeup!

    I've never felt more stunning!

    I cannot say enough great things about Alice and Jane! I got to meet Alice during my trial and she was so sweet and welcoming and I’m sure would be a lovely person to have on your wedding day team. Jane did my makeup & hair at the trial as well as the hair and makeup for me, my mom, and one of my bridesmaids on my wedding day. She did a phenomenal job on all three of us! I felt absolutely gorgeous! Additionally she is such a calm and upbeat person, she has the perfect vibe for what could be a stressful morning :D We were doing hair and makeup at my apartment on the wedding day when we lost power! Jane started doing our eyes and other makeup while we waited to see if it would come back quickly. When it didn’t she happily agreed to pack everything up and drive us across the street to meet where my other bridemaids were getting ready on their own before coming over. She reset up in their hotel room and continued like nothing had ever interrupted the morning flow. Additionally their prices are so reasonable! I called 8 different salons before stumbling across Secret Salon, and all of them charged almost double for the bride’s makeup and hair compared to bridesmaids while Secret Salon charges the same incredible rate. Jane was also really great at listening to what all three of us wanted for our hair and makeup and working on creating exactly that look. And any changes I wanted after, she happily implemented. Then she showed my bridesmaids how to put my veil in and take it out of my hair so that it wouldn’t pull out a bunch of the pinned curls. The whole process was so easy, fun, and comfortable! I would recommend Secret Salon to any bride in San Diego :D

    Best Hair & Makeup Artist!

    Alice was absolutely amazing! Finding a hair and makeup artist was the hardest part of my wedding. I found Secret Salon and loved the reviews and photos! I met Alice for a hair and makeup tutorial and immediately loved her. Alice is so sweet and made me feel so beautiful. I wanted just a simple half up/half down curled look with natural makeup. She did airbrush makeup (a must!) and I ended up getting extensions because it made me look so glamorous! I looked absolutely stunning but still like me, which is exactly what I wanted. My hair and makeup stayed throughout the entire wedding and my bridal party loved their hair and makeup. I would definitely recommend Alice!

    Alice is just amazing at what she does. Not only is she a blast to have around but she is one of the very few makeup and hair professionals who can make the bride look as good at the end of the night as they do in the beginning of their day. Highly recommend her!
