GET TO KNOW ME BETTER
Hi, I'm Rachel Rizzo!
I'm an on-location freelance hair and makeup artist based in Buffalo, New York. I've been a licensed cosmetologist since 2004. I'm also a certified educator for Mirabella Beauty and I hold a BA from the University of Buffalo for Art and Photography.
A few years back I made the switch from full time stylist in a busy salon to specializing in event styling. I love making women feel empowered through their beauty. From weddings and bridal showers, to bachelorette parties and boudoir shoots. From maternity shoots and family photos, to proms and senior portraits, and everything in between. Whether you want to look a little extra special or a whole lot of extra - I'm ready to create a look that's all your own, to let your unique natural radiance shine and of course, make all your Pinterest dreams comes true!
All of the work you'll find throughout my site is my own, unless otherwise noted, so please enjoy!

WHAT MY BRIDES ARE SAYING
From her talent to her personality, Rachel has it all! The entire process was seamless and easy. She was available to give her input, address any questions and concerns I had, even those that did not relate to hair or makeup. She understands the stress of wedding planning and all that goes along with it and takes her time to get to know you and make things easier for you. My maid of honor and mother also had Rachel do their hair and makeup and were thrilled with the outcome on wedding day. Both have had their hair and makeup done in the past and said that Rachel was by far the best. No matter what look you are going for, I'm confident she can do it for you and you'll look flawless!
