I am Rachael Capocci, a qualified professional hair stylist and makeup artist specialising in weddings in Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties.
With over 19 years' experience in the hairdressing industry, I’ve been fortunate to work in well-known salons and with award-winning stylists throughout my career.
As soon as I qualified, I found a natural flair and love for bridal hair. This was encouraged by the salons I worked in resulting in becoming a hair-up and wedding specialist before making the big jump to set up my business focussing on bridal.
Being a bridal hair specialist is my passion and in particular, styling and up-dos. I not only stay up to date with modern styles and trends by attending fashion shows, events and training courses, but I always look at ways to personalise styles for each individual.
My styling has been featured in a number of publications, including Your Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wedding magazine and Architectural Digest.
Hair and makeup go hand-in-hand, therefore it was a natural progression for me to step into wedding makeup to compliment my services. I have attended the Illamasqua Makeup School in London to study bridal makeup and qualified at the London School of Makeup.
The Small Details
I love creating bespoke hairstyles and makeup looks to enhance each bride's natural beauty. I pride myself on making every bride feel truly beautiful on her wedding day - it's the small details that make a look complete!
How Do I Work?
I work collaboratively whatever the occasion. I like to get to know my clients and will spend time completely understanding their vision, tastes and style.
Once I have interpreted the brief, I help develop ideas and discuss options & details.
I am continually developing my skills and regularly attend shows, courses and exhibitions to keep up to date with industry trends.
And most importantly, I am never late for an important date!
