    My wedding would not have been the same without Rosy! Me and my girls absolutely loved working with her. The work she did on my hair and make-up on my wedding day made me feel like the absolute most beautiful version of myself. Rosy is friendly, fun, and responsive to feedback (which is very important.) When we did my hair/make-up trial, the hair did not come out the way either of us had envisioned, but she was able to make adjustments to the hairstyle so that I was 100% pleased on the wedding day. She takes her time to do excellent work and is a real perfectionist, which is what you want on your big day. She didn't mind me adding an extra person for services on short notice and easily accommodated these kinds of changes. I really enjoyed that she knew how to adjust styles for my young bridesmaids vs. my mom+mother of the groom so that everyone felt comfortable with their look. Most importantly, she offers touch-up services during the photo shoot, which I HIGHLY recommend! For a very reasonable cost, she stood next to my photographer the whole time, helping to make suggestions about chin placement, etc. to make me look my best and walking up in between shots to keep every hair in place and my makeup looking perfect. She even put a little bit of product in the groom's hair and powdered the groomsmen's foreheads when they looked shiny. I can't recommend her highly enough and I'm so grateful that she was willing to travel to Nashville to work on our wedding. You will not be disappointed if you hire Rosy for your event.

    Her services for my wedding party covered the bride (plus hair and makeup trial), mother of the bride, mother of the groom, and 2 bridesmaid plus touch-up work on all the boys!

    Rosanna’s work is incredible! Hiring her for hair and makeup was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process, and she played a crucial role in helping our wedding day run as smoothly as it did!

    Rosanna has extensive experience with makeup and hair styling for stage and film as well as weddings. I wanted something very natural-looking for my wedding day, and she nailed it! She was open to lots of my comments and “critiques” during our hair and makeup trial, and that made me confident she was genuinely interested in making sure that I was comfortable with and happy about the way I would look on that important day. Rosanna even let me know that a volumizing blow dry the day before the wedding would help set my hair in just the right way, so I hired her on the spot to do it for me!

    When the wedding day finally arrived, Rosanna worked with my coordinator and photographer to make sure everyone's hair and makeup would get done without a hitch. She and her assistants showed up perfectly on time and wasted no time setting up and getting ready to go. They each worked efficiently and professionally--18 services, hair and makeup for 9 people, happened on time, and we were even done a little early! Each bridesmaid looked beautiful, and I felt even more gorgeous than I did during my trial.

    The best part of Rosanna’s services was the touch-ups throughout the day. I would highly recommend to any bride that she invest in Rosanna’s touch-up services--a wedding day is long (and often windy or hot and sweaty or filled with happy tears!), and having someone there to fix your hair or touch up your lipstick or powder is extremely comforting. Rosanna followed us around as we took portraits to make sure everyone looked their absolute best--she even got the guys to let her powder their noses and foreheads so they wouldn't be shiny in the photos!

    I am so happy that I hired Rosanna for hair and makeup. She is creative, professional, and kind.

    Rosanna is absolutely amazing! She did hair and makeup for me, my sisters, and my mom at my wedding in June, 2015. She is so talented and professional, and is a true artist. Her rates are reasonable, especially considering the care and quality that you receive. I had a trial hair/makeup session a month before my wedding, and she was flexible and worked with my schedule. She was right on time, and worked with me to interpret the vision I described, and WOW! I have never felt so beautiful. She was able to replicate it perfectly on my wedding day. Again on the big day, she was right on time, well prepared, and made the getting ready hours so much fun! She is incredibly sweet and talented, and HIGHLY recommend her for any hair and/or makeup needs!
