  • Oh I don't know where to begin. I reached out to another vendor for this service however they were booked and recommended Rachel. Everyone keep in mind, make up is not my thing on a day to day basis. I don't wear it unless I am going to event which is not often. Rachel does a way more Fabulous Work then I can even dream. From the first email, to the trial run, to the day of the wedding, Rachel was AMAZING to work with. When she asked you to fill out the questionnaire's please do it. It helps her understand exactly what you are looking for. The trial for the Bride.. She came in and set everything up. Very professional even in today's world. Everything was clean, neat and professional. She got to work based on those question's she asks you. She knew exactly what to do and how i wanted to look. She matched the foundation without blinking an eye. Needless to say, by the time she was done, I went from plain jane beautiful to Hello World Here I Am Beautiful!! I just needed my dress and...

  • I was referred to Rachel by my wedding dress boutique and I could not be happier with her! She was so extremely nice and organized right from the very beginning. Her level of experience Is evident in her quality of hair styles that she created in only a few hours. She did my hair and a few of my bridesmaids and we were all thrilled with the final looks. She took the time to get to know us all and took interest in what made us look and feel beautiful. She has wonderfully magical fingers and a personality to match! She was such a gem to work with and I would highly recommend her to everyone!!

I’m speechless at all of the kind words you wrote and will be forever grateful to Cathy for bringing us together. You were such a beautiful bride and it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your day. Endless gratitude and wishes for a beautiful, long, healthy life with your new HUSBAND!!!

  • Where to begin...Rachel is amazing. I had written another review about her and somehow deleted it and immediately came back on to write one again because she deserves all the praise! When looking for someone to do my hair for my wedding day, I knew I wanted and needed someone who could do outstanding work but who would also be fun to be with. Let me tell you, Rachel is BOTH - outstanding and fun! I had a hair trial previous to meeting Rachel with another person and it was awful. My hair looked crunchy and the girl spent 15 minutes on it. I was really stressed out about it and then saw a friend on instagram had used Rachel. I reached out and she was so friendly and we set up a time to do a trial. From the moment I met Rachel, I knew she was the hairstylist for me! She was funny, kind, outgoing, and so good at what she does. She took the time to go through a bunch of different hairstyles for me and when we got to the one I loved, we both agreed it was it. I really appreciated th... Read more

    Omg, Brielle. I’m not crying at ALL right now (lies). Thank you so so much for such an amazing review. I am so grateful to have met you and your amazing friends and family, and truly had the best time with everyone at the Lofts! You were an absolutely stunning bride, and you’re an absolutely stunning human being too. So much love to you. Wishing you and your man endless happiness!!!

  • Rachel made my wedding day hair dreams come true! I have thin hair that eventually stops growing. When I found my day of dream hairstyle, I honestly did not see it as a real possibility for myself. Rachel was AMAZING because she is with you from day 1 of signing the contract to the morning of the wedding and it made my wedding day SO EASY to get ready. Rachel sent out questionnaires to get a feel for every bridal party member’s style and comfort level. She accommodated requests, but always puts the bride’s vision first. She will call/meet with you for any questions or concerns you have along the way (which in my case, it was helping me navigate the world of hair extensions and ensuring they were prepped and ready to go). Rachel met us where we needed her for the morning of, and collaborated with Formelle by Hollee and Laura Amaya Beauty to accommodate our large bridal party - all while keeping us right on schedule. I am so thankful I stumbled upon Rachel Rizzo because she pr... Read more

  • Where to start? Rachel was phenomenal! Her friendly personality, her attention to detail, her creative stylist abilities! I can go on and on. Rachel did my hair and makeup for my wedding in September and I was incredibly pleased with her work. My hair tends to have a mind of its own but she created a stylish masterpiece that stayed perfect all night and my makeup looked flawless! Thank you Rachel for helping me to look my best on my wedding day! I would give her ten out of five stars if I could!

    Thank you, Bre!! I had so much fun getting to know you better that day, and you looked absolutely stunning!!! A million wishes for a healthy and happy life to you and your husband!!

  • 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! 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.

    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. P.S. I’m not crying, you’re crying.

  • 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.

    Oh, Abby!! Thank you SO much for the sweetest of words and for trusting in my beauty skills. It was absolutely amazing to work with you and spend the morning with you and your hilarious group. I felt right at home! If you’re ever back in the area feel free to hunt me down so we can catch up! Congrats on becoming a Mrs!! Xo

  • I knew I wanted Rachel to do my hair after seeing what an amazing job she did for my cousin’s wedding. She was able to create a make up look that was natural yet showed up beautifully for pictures. She knew exactly what I wanted for my hair style from making sure everything stayed put to having my bangs perfectly swooped in all photos!! I would use her for every special occasion if I could!!

  • Rachel and her team were one of the best decisions I made in planning my wedding!! Rachel is extremely professional, responsive, thoughtful and fun! Wedding day hair can be stressful, but I can honestly say I did not have any stress the morning of my wedding thanks to her. I know I could trust her and her team completely to listen to what myself and my bridal party wanted. She goes the extra mile to make sure everyone is happy with their services. Rachel even sends out a questionnaire prior to the big day asking everyone questions about their hair which made girls who have different hair textures feel comfortable and confident knowing the team was coming prepared the day of. Rachel and her team provided hair services for myself, eight bridesmaids and for the mother of the bride and EVERYONE loved their hair - which we all know can be next to impossible. She is creative, talented and worth every penny and more to make sure you have a stress free wedding day and of course to make sure e... Read more

  • I had an amazing experience with Rachel Rizzo doing the hair and makeup for my wedding. In the planning stages she was always super quick to answer and helpful when I wasn't sure what I was thinking. She was flexible with me and allowed me to do my trial for a friend's wedding I was in since I live out of town and that was my only chance. Day of the wedding Rachel and her team were so lovely. It was a very relaxing morning, we all just laughed and hung out while they worked their magic on our hair. Rachel even made sure that she personally did my maid of honor's hair, because she knew she had some bad experiences with hair before. I was extremely happy with my up do, it stayed looking cute all night and my makeup was natural, just the way I wanted! I would highly recommend Rachel for your wedding day needs.

    Thank you so much, Claire! I'm so glad we were able to work everything out, even though you live out of town! I hope your wedding was everything you dreamed it to be! You were beautiful!!! Congratulations on becoming a Mrs!!

  • Rachel was fantastic to work with for my wedding - from initial contact, through the trials, and ultimately the day of. I didn't really have any idea what kind of style I wanted to do for my hair, but Rachel came up with a fantastic style that fit with my dress, our venue, and the overall feel of our wedding. For my makeup, I don't typically wear a lot, but she made me feel gorgeous while also making it pretty natural. Most importantly, my hair and makeup still looked good through the end of our reception at 11 pm, despite being done at 11 am. I'm so glad I found Rachel, she truly made me feel beautiful and put me at ease through the entire process and gave me one less thing to worry about!

    I'm so glad you found me, Krista! It was my pleasure to be a part of your wedding day. Best of luck to you and your new husband!

  • As you can see from other reviews, working with Rachel is SUCH a great experience. My husband and I got married in Buffalo in July 2018 but we live in Maryland, so it could get tricky to work with vendors from out-of-town. That was never the case with Rachel -- she was so responsive to emails, was very flexible with trying to accommodate my out-of-town schedule for the trial, and her online booking and questionnaire were so helpful in wrangling the mothers and bridesmaids. On the day of the wedding, Rachel and her team kept things running smoothly -- my friends were commenting on how well the morning went, since we've all been in a million weddings by now and have never had it go so well! For my own hair and makeup, Rachel talked me through some suggested changes from the trial, since she was getting to know me and my style better, and I could not have been happier with the little changes and her patience. Outside of the logistics, Rachel is an also all-around great person to have arou... Read more
