The ultimate beauty experience for the Nashville bride
HI! I'M RACHEL.
Owner of R&Co. Bridal Beauty
As you can see I have my hands full, literally. Why stop there though? Add 3 Great Pyrenees and a booming bridal beauty business to the mix, I think it goes without saying that mama needs a drink, preferably a spicy pineapple margarita... on the beach...okay I'll settle for a wedding day mimosa and some girl time.
I won't tell you that I always knew I was going to do bridal hair and makeup but I have always known I was going to do hair and makeup. While the rest of my graduating class was waking up early to take their SATS's, this girl was getting her beauty sleep, dreaming of bobby pins and false lashes.
I'll speed through the boring stuff:
Started cosmetology school in 2006 while still in high school -> took a year off and worked as a coordinator for the largest salon in the area -> decided a salon environment was not my jam, but beauty still was -> moved from Michigan to Nashville to finish beauty school -> did umpteen million roller sets, highlights, pedicures -> graduated from Franklin Hair Academy -> Started working for a bridal beauty team -> Went solo booking my own weddings while working at Sephora -> Became an educator for Makeup Forever -> Went full time with my bridal business and grew my team -> Here we are, Exciting right?! Trust me as my client I will talk your head off so don't get worried that I won't be able to answer the thousands of questions you're now dying to ask.
Now, how many people can say that their job description consists of Britney Spears playlists, champagne, girl time, makeup and an overwhelming amount of bobby pins and hair spray? This girl! I'm not trying to sell you on the fact that I love what I do, I think its pretty obvious. I'm a girls' girl and I love a good get together full of laughs, tears and the sharing of memories. I have such a special connection with each of my brides and all of their closest ladies. I'm in love with the transformations that take place and the selfies that follow. I make it my personal mission to customize a look for each client that makes them feel beautiful without feeling like they're unrecognizable AND to make some false lash cynicals into false lash spokeswomen.
Why is having your hair and makeup done on your wedding day a necessity?
You know the photos you've spent thousands on because that's "the only thing that will last post the wedding" ? Guess who's the star of those? You.

With your bridal hair and makeup booking you have a trial run included, take full advantage. If we have availability on any of your following sessions then we would be more than happy to accommodate or you can book each of these individually During these sessions we will get to know you and your taste to completely perfect your look on your big day.
Engagement sessions are the perfect introduction for you and your artist. During this session you will get the chance to become familiar with your artist. Your artist will take this time to get a feel for your everyday look and enhance it to have you looking flawless in your pictures with your honey!
The perfect time to take advantage of your trial run. Want to see how your wedding hair and makeup will wear and photograph prior to the big day? Bridal portraits will do just that. Switch it up all together and do a completely different look for your bridal portraits then your wedding day.
Time to bring out that inner goddess! Our brides love glamming it up and going for a more dramatic look during these sessions. Theres no better time to get used to those false lashes than here and now. As an R&Co Bride you will also be the first to know about any upcoming mini sessions.
