THE R&CO STORY

 
 

HEY BABES! IM RACHEL, OWNER/MASTER STYLIST AND YOUR NEW WEDDING DAY HYPE GIRL!

 

NORTH CAROLINA BORN, MICHIGAN RAISE AND FOR THE PAST 13 YEARS I'VE CALLED TENNESSEE HOME. I WAS ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES THAT KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANTED GROWING UP AND THANKFULLY, NEVER VEERED AWAY FROM MY GOAL. I STARTED COSMETOLOGY SCHOOL MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL AND THEN FOUND MYSELF WANTING TO FINISH WHERE THE INDUSTRY WOULD FULFILL MY DREAM, NASHVILLE IT WAS.  

 

WHY WEDDINGS AND EVENTS? BECAUSE I WAS THAT GIRL THAT WHEN MY FRIENDS HATED THEIR PROM HAIR THEY CALLED ME TO FIX IT. I WAS THAT GIRL THAT WAS LATE TO MY PROM PICTURES BECAUSE MY MAKEUP ARTIST DECIDED HOT PINK LINER WAS THE WAY TO GO SO I WAS AT HOME REDOING MY FACE. HAVING 3 SISTERS, GIRL WORLD IS MY FAVORITE WORLD AND DOING WHAT I DO IS LIKE LIVING IN A MOVIE. I DO MY BEST WORK UNDER PRESSURE AND WHATS MORE PRESSURE THEN THE BIGGEST DAY OF SOMEONES LIFE? 

I COMPLETED MY FIRST PAID WEDDING WHILE I WAS STILL IN BEAUTY SCHOOL AND FELL IN LOVE WITH THE FEELING AND THE EMOTIONS AND EXCITEMENT THAT SURROUNDS SUCH A SPECIAL DAY. FROM THERE I WENT ON TO FREELANCE WITH A COMPANY THAT SPECIALIZED IN WEDDINGS AND RED CARPET EVENTS, WHEN I WASN'T DOING THAT, I WAS WORKING AT SEPHORA GAINING PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE AND NEW TECHNIQUES. 

IN 2013 I WAS GETTING MORE AND MORE INQUIRIES AND NEEDING EXTRA HELP ON WEDDINGS, THIS IS WHEN I WENT FROM FREELANCE TO BUSINESS OWNER. I HIRED ON MY BEST FRIEND JUSTINE, WHO IS STILL ONE OF OUR LEAD STYLISTS, TO BE MY RIGHT HAND GAL. IN THE PAST 8 YEARS I HAVE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO TRAIN AND WORK WITH THE MOST INCREDIBLE GROUP OF STYLISTS. MY GOAL IN MY BUSINESS IS FOR MY TEAM TO LOVE THEIR JOB AND OUR CLIENTS TO FEEL LIKE THEY'RE JUST BRINGING IN THEIR BEST FRIENDS ON THEIR WEDDING MORNING TO GLAM THEM UP. 

OUTSIDE OF BEING A BUSINESS OWNER, I AM A WIFE, A MOM OF 4 AND A FURMOM TO MY LOVEABLE PUPS. MY HUSBAND AND I GOT MARRIED IN SEPTEMBER OF 2020 AFTER HAVING TO CANCEL OUR MEXICO DESTINATION WEDDING AND REPLAN SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT LOCALLY, IN 2 MONTHS, IT WAS AMAZING. I GET ASKED ALL THE TIME, NO I DID NOT DO MY OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP FOR MY WEDDING, BECAUSE BABY WANTED TO SIT BACK, MARGARITA IN HAND AND GET GLAMMED. IM A HUGE TRUE CRIME JUNKIE (BEFORE IT WAS COOL) AND LOVE TO STAY UPDATED WITH POP CULTURE AND MY UNHEALTHY OBSESSION OF REAL HOUSEWIVES AND KARDASHIANS. I LOVE COOKING AND ENTERTAINING SO GIVE ME AND EXCUSE TO THROW A PARTY AND IM ALL IN. MY HUSBAND AND I ENJOY TRAVELING AND TRYING THE BEST FOOD THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER AND WHEN WE CAN, LETTING OUR KIDS INDULGE AS WELL. MY WORLD IS FILLED WITH LOTS OF LOVE AND SOME OF THE BEST FRIENDS AND FAMILY ANYONE COULD HAVE. I DEFINITELY LIVE A LIFE THAT I LOVE.
