    Book her now!

    Renee is not only talented but a sweet person! As someone not from the Connecticut area, I was overwhelmed when looking for hair and make-up artists. Once I found Renee and spoke to her on the phone, I knew she would be a great fit. She worked with multiple hair types and styles and everyone was really happy with their wedding hair. They also commented how fun it was to work with Renee and remarked that it was great to sit in her chair. I would recommend Renee to anyone getting married in the area.

    Fall Wedding with Renee

    Renee was so wonderful to work with! She was always very responsive to all emails and was extremely flexible when scheduling trials (including a second trial that I requested). Renee and her team made everyone feel very relaxed on the day of and got through a lot of girls on time and all looking beautiful. I loved my hair and my moms hair was fabulous as well! Thank you Renee!

    I found Renee's website and knew her style was exactly what I was after. Jess did my hair (plus 5 others) on my wedding day and it was awesome - exactly what I wanted! I had a pretty specific style in mind (though not a perfect picture of it), but Jess nailed it pretty quickly at my trial. Everyone's hair looked great and held up all day. Jess was also incredibly sweet. Renee coordinated everything and the process couldn't have been smoother. Highly recommend!

    Renee is absolutely AMAZING at what she does!!! She was the best possible choice I could have made for my wedding :-) She truly works to understand what you want and makes it happen. Renee did my hair as a bride, and 3 weeks later, did my hair as a bridesmaid. Both times, everyone was so impressed with Renee and her talent! Not only did she work hard to make all of our hair perfect, but she has the most calm and comforting demeanor that is so soothing, especially on the morning of your wedding!! Look no further, book Renee!!!

    Danielle is amazing!

    I had Danielle for my wedding day, and could not be happier! At my trial, she listened to everything I wanted, and had it perfected. My wedding day was humid, but Danielle did everything she could to ensure that my hair stayed perfect throughout the day! My bridesmaids, MOB and MOG could also not have been happier. Everyone was completely thrilled that Danielle could match any picture she was shown, and create the hairstyle perfectly. Thank you Danielle for making myself and my girls look so amazing on my special day!

    Renee is an absolute sweetheart and is so incredibly talented! I found Renee through my make-up artist and I am so lucky to have had Renee provide hair services on the day!
    At my trial, Renee did such an amazing job and I knew I could trust her to do my hair and 7 of my friends and family without any doubts! On the day, she was professional as always and when the girls showed her pictures of the styles they were looking for, she was able to look at it and recreate versions at ease. Everyone was so pleased with their hair! My hair was amazing and stayed put all day and I didn't even have to think about it! I am so happy that Renee was able to create such gorgeous hairstyles on my big day! :)

    It was a pleasure working with Yajaira and Danielle on my wedding day! They were so kind and accommodating, not to mention talented! I had a big wedding party and they seamlessly tackled all of the requests thrown their way, and everyone's hair looked amazing! I was so pleased with how my hair turned out as well, and I got so many compliments throughout the night. I would highly recommend using these ladies!

    It was wonderful to work with Renee Russo for the hair for my wedding in April 2018. We had a hair trial in February, but afterwards I decided to change many aspects of my hair and she absolutely came prepared to give me the exact hairstyle I wanted, and it came out better than I ever could’ve imagined. I wanted to wear my hair mostly down and she did a great job with that aspect and for the style to hold the entire evening. Also the other women that got their hair done with me were extremely thrilled!

    Renee was so great and easy to work with! I changed my hair last minute the day of the wedding and she was so great about rolling with my hair change. She did my bridal party, sisters, and mother and they are looked beautiful! She even followed me around while we did photos and helped with my veil in the freezing cold weather. She is great and easy to work with - you are in good hands!

My hair was exactly what I dreamed of and she made sure everyone in the wedding party looked and felt beautiful! We had a windy day and she stuck around to fix me up after my first look and photos. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

    Renee was absolutely AMAZING! She is sweet, caring, and genuinely invested in her clients' needs. Leading up to the big day, she was unbelievably patient with me. As a bride, I was overly particular about how my hair was going to look...so we ended up trying a number of different styles before landing on the perfect one for me. All the while, she eased my worries and made me feel comfortable/confident that I was in good hands..... and she was SO RIGHT! Renee (and team!) took care of my whole bridal party of 7 + 3 moms on the wedding day, and every single person was overjoyed with the outcome. Not one complaint. Despite the frenzy going on around them, Renee and her team stayed calm, cool, and collected (and stayed on schedule!) as all the ladies got dolled up. True professionals. Without a doubt, I would absolutely recommend Renee to any and all brides in the CT area!

    I contacted Renee about hair services for my wedding after looking at the beautiful photos on her website. Her style is elegant and magical without looking helmet-y or stiff. After contacting Renee, I not only learned that she is very professional but also very kind. Her emails convey that she truly cares about your happiness, which I really appreciate. Before my hair trial and the wedding day itself, she checked in to make sure that everything was in order and to wish me a beautiful day, which I found incredibly nice considering that she was not my hairstylist for the day. I worked with her associate Yajaira Daniel, who is just incredible. I truly don’t know how I got so lucky, working with and getting to know Yajaira was one of the best experiences of the wedding planning process. She is so very kind and sweet, not to mention stunningly beautiful. After my first hair trial, she encouraged me to play with my hair and give her updates on any styles I might come to prefer, which made me feel very comfortable around her. Yajaira made all of my bridesmaids and my mom look so beautiful, and my hair came out exactly as I’d hoped. It was ethereal, wispy, natural… just amazing. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much, Yajaira and Renee, for helping to make my wedding day so incredibly magical!

    I LOVED working with Renee for my wedding! She is so friendly, fun, and accommodating! Her skill is evident in her work. She did three very different hair styles for myself, my sister, and my mother (who has very short hair). I was so impressed with her ability to translate our hopes into a reality! I would absolutely work with Renee again and certainly plan to! Thank you Renee for impeccable service and making us feel our very best on the big day! xx

    Working with Renee was a great experience from the very beginning. While I was trying to find a hairstylist for my wedding day, I was immediately drawn to her because of her clear, direct and open communication. I didn't have a hair trial because I was unable to make the trip from New York City and everyone I spoke to thought I was crazy! The day of the wedding, Renee came prepared to make our style dreams a reality. My mom, sisters and I all got our hair done; all very different and each of us looked amazing. I wanted a soft finger curl; a vintage look. I described it to Renee and she knew exactly what to do. The results exceeded the vision I had for my bridal look. It was absolutely glamorous! I got many compliments on my hair and even though I had not foreseen the challenges of my hair staying put all night, Renee ensured that my hair looked great after the ceremony and well into dancing and frolicking around. She was also very personable and made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Renee!

    Renee's services for my wedding were beyond anything I could have imagined. She is professional and insanely, wildly talented. She did the entire wedding party and everyone was SO happy with her work. Renee also stuck around to fix me up after the ceremony and before photos. We had a hot, humid day and she kept me looking amazing. She's devoted to what she does and it shows from the first trial (and second...and third...I put her through the trial ringer) to the biggest day of your life.

    I also see Renee for cut / color on a regular basis and about a year before my wedding, she took my damaged locks and had them looking flawless by the big day. Unless she up and quits the biz, she'll be doing my hair until it's a sparkly, silver-white.

    Renee was absolutely wonderful! She did my hair as well as my bridesmaids and my mom's hair; everyone was extremely pleased. When I went for my bridal trial, right away I felt comfortable with her. Renee understood the look I was going for and I couldn't of been happier with the results. She was friendly, personable and professional. She uses Paul Mitchell products which are cruelty-free and 95% of the products are vegan, which is really important to me. I would highly recommend her! And not just because we have the same name. :)

    I contracted with Renee to provide hair services for me, my mom, mother-in-law and five of my bridesmaids on the morning of my wedding. While I unfortunately wasn't able to work with Renee directly, I was able to work with one of her senior stylists - Yajaira Daniels - who was absolutely fabulous. To start Yajaira was incredibly accommodating, agreeing to do my hair trial (and one for my mom) in her apartment because I wasn't able to make it during her normal salon hours (I live in NYC so my opportunities to travel to CT for a trial were limited). I showed her three pictures and within 30 minutes she had perfectly captured the look I was going for. I have very thin, fine hair so Yajaira helped me with selecting hair extensions to use for the day of and made my hair look so thick and beautiful for my wedding day. It was honestly the best my hair has ever looked. She was also extremely accommodating when working with my mom, mother-in-law and bridesmaids - making sure they were each happy with their look and even redoing my sister-in-law's hair when she decided to switch from an updo to down halfway through the morning. Best of all - she finished all of our hair with time to spare - doing touch ups and pictures with all of us before we had to head down to the limo. If you have the opportunity to work with her don't hesitate!
