Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good hairstylist?

First, pull up a list of nearby hairstylists on Thumbtack, and read their profiles to get an understanding of what they specialize in — hair coloring, cutting, extensions, wedding hairstyles, etc. Then, start searching for stylists who have high ratings and customer reviews. You should also spend some time looking at photos that showcase their work. That way, you can determine if a stylist has the experience and skills needed to achieve the look you want. 

When you’ve identified at least three hairstylists you like, ask them for a cost estimate and make sure they have the proper credentials.

How do you hire a hairstylist?

After you find a few hairstylists you’re interested in, you need to decide who to hire. To figure this out, ask yourself these questions when evaluating each candidate:

  • Does the hairstylist have mostly positive customer reviews and high ratings?
  • Is the hairstylist charging prices that are reasonable and within my budget?
  • Does this person specialize in my hair type and texture?
  • Can the hairstylist achieve the look I want?
  • Does the hairstylist have the proper training?
  • Can the hairstylist come to me (i.e., are they a mobile hairstylist?), or do I need to go to their place of business?

What does a hairstylist do?

Many hairstylists have the training and skills to do the following:

  • Shampoo and condition hair
  • Blow-dry hair
  • Cut and trim hair
  • Color, dye and bleach hair
  • Straighten, braid and curl hair
  • Install hair extensions and weaves

The best hairstylists can recommend styles and advise you on how to properly care for your hair type. Some may specialize in a certain treatment, or they may focus on hairstyles for events, such as a wedding.

How much do you tip hairstylists?

A good rule of thumb is to tip your hairstylist at least 20%. Of course, it’s OK to tip more or less than 20%.

If you decide to tip 20%, here’s a quick guide on how much to tip your hairstylist:

What should I do if my hairstylist messes up?

If you believe your hairstylist messed up, bring it to their attention. Talk to them about what you expected and why you’re not happy with the end result. Because many professionals rely on positive customer reviews and word of mouth to keep their business going, they’re often willing to make adjustments.

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!!

Ruby did an amazing job on my hair and my sisters hair for my wedding. I did a beautiful half up look with my hair twisting back. I put beautiful pins in my hair that gave a floral crown look. It was stunning. The week of my wedding my sister decided she wanted Ruby to do her hair too. Ruby accepted the challenge and did my sister hair first time so trial day of my wedding. I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am of Ruby. She went above and beyond all expectations. She is a very good stylist with lots of years of experience and it showed that day. She made us beautiful and our thin bodiless hair stay curled and perfect all day and night.

I’m so glad I chose Chanel to do my hair for my son’s wedding! It was a pleasure to work with her. Chanel’s a professional, talented, and creative stylist who really listens to her clients. I received SO many compliments on my hairstyle- all evening. I highly recommend her for any bride or bridal party-!
