Hi and welcome to my website! I started out in the Hair and Makeup industry 14 years ago and I am based in Lancashire, however I cover areas all over the North West and I am often called to travel throughout the UK for my services.
From a young age, I began working at a local hair salon, where I initially gained an extensive amount of experience with Bridal Hairstyling, blow drying and cutting/colouring.
After leaving school, whilst studying at college to gain my Degree in Fashion, Theatrical and Media Hair and Makeup, I was given the opportunity to work with luxury cosmetic brands at a luxury department store, brands I worked with included Mac, Nars, Bobbi Brown and Chanel, all of which are regularly used within my Makeup Kit. From working in retail for around a year, I took the plunge and set up my own freelance business. During my years of freelancing, I have had opportunities with many different clients, magazines, TV production companies and commercial fashion clients. And in 2014 I was offered the role to Head up the Hair and Makeup Team at Boohoo.com which was an amazing opportunity. I still love working fashion brands and models and I am lucky enough to fit in shoots around my trials and weddings too!
Call me Rach, Rachael or Rach Bott. I'm a 30-something skin care & Makeup obsessed artist and I got married in July 2011 so I know only too well how stressful it all can be. My advice is to enjoy every second and take time out with your newlywed on the day itself! I have been nominated for many awards in my career and I have my clients to thank for that! Take a look here!
We welcomed our first little human, Eliza into the world in 2014 and then our newest (and last!!) addition, Max, in 2017 so it's safe to say I'm always super busy, just how I like it!
I spend most of my evenings in the wedmin office so I will never be too far away from replying to any enquiries or questions you may have.
In September 2020, with Makeup and Hair artists still on Lockdown, I needed to set my creative juices going again so I enrolled onto a nail course. This is an add on treatment that I can now offer to the bride and bridal party and is a new skill I am loving learning.
My all-time favourite things are tea, prosecco, salt and vinegar crisps and the sun! All at once ideally :)
