Jules is an excellent artist and I highly recommend her for any person's make-up and styling needs! She did an OUTSTANDING JOB with my makeup and hair for a photo shoot this May. I had a smokey eye and blowout done, and I was more than happy with the results! She was attentive to my input, she was kind and polite, and I can't imagine using anyone else in the future for my makeup needs.

She really understood what advice I needed. Then we went thru my wardrobe and we made piles to donate, throw out, and sell at consignment. Then she organized my closet so that it worked for me. Now I can quickly pull together outtfits that are stylish and appropriate for any occasion. Although we were able to use many of my existing clothes, Dianna will return with items that will jazz up and complete the wardrobe. Then we will take photos of suggested combinations for travel, business, casual, and formal occasions. I look forward to see her creative magic touch.

I hired Laly last minute because our original person cancelled. I needed my daughter's make up done for her quinceanera photo shoot. Laly did an amazing job! My daughter absolutely loved her look!! Since my daughter loved the make up, we hired Laly to do her make up on the day of the quinceanera. I had my make up done as well. Again the looks were fabulous! We both received many compliments on our make up! I am definitely going to hire her again when we have another big event. I highly recommend her, you won't be disappointed. I will attach some pics from my phone at a later date. I'm writing the review on my tablet.

Karla did my makeup for a special event and she truly captured what I was looking for: a glamorous look. I loved that I still felt like myself, but also felt pretty confident and fabulous during my event. My makeup and lashes lasted for hours!! She did it in the morning and my makeup still looked fresh and on point throughout the entire evening and the weather was warm. She is very professional and listened to my skin concerns. I won’t hesitate to call her again next time I have a special occasion or a photo shoot. I highly recommend her!!

Ann was phenomenal. Since my wedding was a destination wedding I had to choose a stylist without any hair or makeup trials. Every bride knows hair and makeup can make or break the day, and Ann definitely made the day. She was on time, and was able to make my hair and makeup look better than what I asked for. I highly recommend her!!

Stephanie was INCREDIBLE! She was very responsive when I first reached out for her services, and throughout the entire process she kept me informed and was very flexible. Stephanie did the makeup for my bridal party (3 ladies), the mother's, and myself (the bride) and she nailed it. She came at 11:30am for a 5:30pm ceremony and was able to beautify my entire crew with time to spare. I'm so thankful for what Stephanie added to my day. I felt absolutely gorgeous and couldn't possibly be happier!! I will cherish these memories forever and I hope others reach out and schedule a trial with Stephanie to see how incredible she is for yourself! (I'll send you photos when I receive them!)

I worked with Katie on a portfolio start up photo shoot. It was approximately five hours long at two locations. I felt like it was a collaboration where I obtained the benefit of Katie's experience and was prepared to incorporate several styles and appearances in the multi-location shoot. Katie was on-time, professional and encouraged me to challenge myself with a couple of alternate looks that helped me make the most of the shoot and locations. A total professional and I feel like I looked fabulous. I am so impressed, I am working with Katie to provide make up lessons to learn some of the latest tips, tricks and techniques!! I highly recommend Katie for your professional and personal make up needs and guidance!

I heard about Joanna through a friend who got makeup and hair done by her for a wedding. Joanna responded quickly to my call to have my makeup done for my pregnancy photo shoot. She showed up at my house right on time, and even gave me a little baby gift basket. It was so sweet and meant a lot to me. It was like a close friend coming over. She’s so personable and down to earth, but most of all very professional and takes her passion seriously. She REALLY listens to what the client wants and how they’d feel most like themselves. That’s what I loved; My makeup felt natural but was done so beautifully. I have recommended Joanna Campbell to everyone I know and will be using her again for future events. Thanks Joanna for helping make memories extra memorable and unique.

I have had the opportunity to work with Miranda in her Red Carpet program and was blown away by her photo shoot. Some of my most impressive photos are from her. She captured my spirit, my energy and my intention in all her shots. When you have Miranda work with you on your photo gallery you will not be able to decide what to select, you will love them all. Let Miranda capture your soul for the world to see.

Angela has been my makeup guru for the longest. She’s very religious in watching YouTube videos to learn new techniques as well as new released makeup to see what’s the best. She utilizes YouTube as a source to further her knowledge and skills in hair and makeup to be the best possible stylist to her clients. 10/10 recommend.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a personal stylist?

To find a fashion consultant, start by browsing portfolios online. Styling is a visual art, so finding a fashion consultant who fits the style you desire is key. Great personal stylists aren’t confined to one style, but if you’re seeking a hipper, fashion-forward vibe, you’d do well to find someone with a modern portfolio, while a fashion consultant with a consistently refined style could be a better fit if you’d prefer a more conservative look. Reading reviews is also helpful for learning more about the fashion consultant. Research their training, background and years of experience. After reviewing websites and Instagram accounts, meet with the stylist in person to learn how well they fit your personality; some fashion consultants offer a free phone consultation prior to hiring. Before hiring, make sure you clearly understand their terms of service and payment.

What do image consultants do?

Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion, such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion either using either what the client owns or taking a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, your lifestyle, and what you hope to present to the world, and will then determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit one area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve. Personal shopping is another service that image consultants provide. After an image assessment, they can either shop with you or shop on your behalf to find you key pieces you need.

What is a fashion consultant?

A fashion consultant is a paid professional who will advise you on what to wear and how to wear it to fit your desired lifestyle or career goals. A fashion consultant can provide many services including personal shopping, closet audits, beauty consultations, style consultations and ongoing seasonal services. A fashion consultant often has a design or fashion background (although this is not required) and an innate sense of style. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the colors, cuts and designs we think suit us. A fashion consultant comes in with fresh eyes and provides constructive feedback to guide your style choices.

During your initial meeting, your fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and learn what you hope to achieve. They’ll identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you how to wear items together. Many consultants create style lookbooks for their clients explaining things like exactly which shoes to wear with what pants and how to accessorize each look. Fashion consultants are a great option for people who are updating their style due to age, career changes or body changes, or who are just ready for a new look and feel. Most fashion consultants charge by the hour, with some offering packages and others working from a retainer.

What is a personal shopper?

Personal shoppers take the pain out of having good fashion. Personal shoppers are paid professionals who work with women, men or children who need style assistance. If you are stuck in a fashion rut, are unsure how to dress in a way that flatters your body, need to revamp your image, or want a more professional career look, personal shoppers can help. Personal shoppers identify the look their client wants to achieve and purchase the necessary clothing and accessories to achieve it. The process often begins with an initial consultation with the client to understand their style goals. This consultation may include a closet “audit,” an assessment of the client’s current wardrobe to see what items can be eliminated and what must be purchased to achieve the desired style.

The client and the personal shopper can shop together, selecting items as a team. The personal shopper may also shop on behalf of the client, then bring all items to the client for a final decision. A third option is pre-shopping, where the personal shopper reaches the store(s) ahead of the client and sets aside clothing for the client to try on, expediting the whole process — a win for anyone who hates spending time in the mall. Personal shoppers can also be hired for one-time events such as weddings, vacations or birthdays. You can also enlist a personal shopper to do your gift shopping for you. Overall, a personal shopper is an investment in making good style choices.

Do I need a makeup artist for my wedding?

There are no rules around your wedding day, and that means it’s your choice whether to have a wedding makeup artist. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding makeup artist, consider the pros and cons. Some women decide against a wedding makeup artist to save money. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, which is an expense some women prefer to do without. Other women just don’t love wearing makeup. Some brides have friends or family members who are talented makeup artists willing to provide their services. If you choose not to have a wedding makeup artist, be sure to do at least two trial runs of your makeup look well before the wedding day to avoid any morning-of panic.

On the other hand, a wedding makeup artist can make the bride feel pampered and confident, giving her a flawless, fabulous look for the ceremony and reception and in wedding photos. For brides who are uncomfortable with heavy makeup, many wedding makeup artists usually excel at the natural look. Many brides consider wedding makeup part of the ritual and tradition of the ceremony, a shared experience with the entire bridal party. Ultimately your choice of whether to hire a wedding makeup artist should be based on what will make you feel most confident and happy.
