Rikki Techner-Werning - Hair, Makeup and Clothing Stylist
Rikki was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, where she developed a love for Cardinals baseball, foods stuffed with cheese, and most importantly, the theater. Having learned to sew at the age of four, she naturally gravitated towards costuming. While earning her BFA in Theater, with an emphasis in costume design at Millikin University, she fell in love with stage makeup.
After graduating in 2009, she moved to Los Angeles and began her career as a professional makeup artist. She’s worked in the independent film scene for several years and, in the breaks between shows, she developed a small fashion line called Odd Mod Boutique, combining vintage style with nerdy character fabrics. Recently, her focus has shifted away from film and towards portraits and bridal makeup. When not working, she can be found hiking, cooking, or spending time with her wife and tiny white dog.
