Rachel is a delight!
Rachel was a breeze to work with! She did the hair for me and my wedding party and I heard SO many compliments from guests about the styles! She is professional, talented, and hilarious to be around. I would recommend her to anybody!Sent on 09/15/2019

Amazing and stress-free experience!
Hiring Rachel to do makeup for me and my bridal party was easily one of the best decisions I made (for my wedding and for my life in general)! First of all, she is extremely talented and helped everyone looked flawless! She was especially amazing with my mother, who was a first-time false-lash-wearer, and a little anxious about the experience. Rachel is open to feedback and willing to go the extra mile to make sure that everyone is truly happy with how they look--including sending out a survey prior to the wedding day in order to assess everyone's preferences--super helpful!Sent on 09/18/2019
Her work speaks for itself, but I also need to discuss Rachel as a human. She is so fun to be around and her energy is somehow exciting and relaxing all at once. After my trial with Rachel, I knew that having her in the room with me on the morning of my wedding would help to ensure that the conversations stayed interesting and my nerves stayed calm.
Rachel Rizzo Hair and Makeup's reply:Omg, Autumn!! So many sweet words I don’t even know where to start! You’re amazing and working with you and your girls on your wedding day was the best thing ever. I hope you and your new hubs have the happiest life humanly possible.

Couldn't ask for More
Getting married in a small town has its limitations. When looking for wedding vendors I had to start searching MILES outside the venue. I feel so fortunate to have found Rachel. I immediately hired her to do my hair as well as the mothers and bridesmaids for my wedding. She was always quick to respond, she was insanely thorough with all the details which makes my planning heart flutter. She created individualized styles that really fit each person. She made the best recommendations and was so fun to be around. I honestly wish I had more events just so I could hang out with her again. haha! She was even willing to travel over an hour to my venue the day of and made me feel like the most beautiful person on the planet. I would recommend her a millions times over.Sent on 06/21/2019
