Working with Rickie was always such a great experience. She was extremely professional and so talented. Her outgoing personality always made me feel at ease when getting my hair and make up done. The first time I worked with Rickie was for my wedding day. She was truly so amazing throughout the entire process. From the trial beforehand to the many, many texts and emails in between, Rickie was always so attentive and responsive. On my wedding day, she did a beautiful job with both my hair and make up. I was more than happy with it! I enjoyed working with Rickie so much that I worked with her again for my brother's wedding, in which she did another amazing job! Thank you again, Rickie! :)

"I had the privilege of having Rickie as my hair and make up artist on my wedding day, and looking back, I honestly could not have done it without Rickie’s expertise. Living with sensitive skin my entire life, I’ve always been hesitant with other people touching my face. When I met Rickie, she put me at ease, and I felt as if I’ve known her for years. From that point on, I immediately knew that I was in good hands for my wedding day. During my initial meeting with her for my hair and make up trial, her recommendations with colors based on my skin tone and products that she used blew me away! On the day of my wedding, Rickie arrived on time in the early hours of my big day, and with everything that was going, Rickie was calm and kept me relaxed. The make up she applied on my face was incredibly lightweight and lasted all day and all night. Regarding my wedding hair, I showed her pictures from websites of what I wanted, and she worked her magic! When I show pictures of my wedding day to my family and friends, I always get compliments on my amazing my hair and make up! Rickie is truly a professional and with her talent, she transformed my dreams into a reality.​"​

Rickie Bocanegra is an experienced and professional artist who I had the pleasure of meeting at a Bridal Expo 6 months prior to my wedding in August 2014.  After meeting with Rickie and conveying my need for an experienced and creative beauty consultant, I elected to hire Rickie based on her models who worked the runway at the Bridal Expo I attended.  The models hair and make-up were "flawless" and I really appreciated the creativity and design of each of the models.  Rickie is a makeup artist and hairstylist who believes that beauty comes in all forms and she puts her clients needs first.   She incorporates the two to achieve the desired effect, which was amazing. The bridal planning process is stressful for all of us, but I felt at ease and in good hands along the way and enjoyed my meetings with Rickie and appreciated her suggestions on hair and make-up. I opted or the bridal package which worked well for me and my busy schedule, and Rickie was in constant contact with my bridal party to secure bookings and communicate the schedule and she attended my bridal luncheon to meet with my bridal party to discuss her services.  I was impressed with her professionalism and flexibility in providing me with exceptional services throughout my wedding planning.  In the end, I appreciate the time she took to make us all feel very special and beautiful on my special day.  Rickie's "positive attitude "and professionalism radiates and shines in her ability to work well under pressure, which enabled me to feel calm and collected on my special day. Thank you Rickie and I highly recommend "Rickie Bocanegra" for all your hair & make-up needs, you are in good hands with an experienced professional.
