Teresa did my hair and make-up for the big day, and made me feel absolutely beautiful. She arrived bright & early and working with her was great! She worked well with my needs and wants while also sharing her knowledge and expertise. Perfect beginning to a perfect day!

I hired for hair during my wedding & my bridesmaids were very satisfied with the way their hair turned out. I was so happy that the stylist arrived on time & they were ready to work. They were very sweet. The only issue was that after they were finished they asked for a 15% gratuity per person after I had already signed a contract stating that the service was paid in full & that the company was to distribute money to the stylists. According to the contract everything was included AND it stated in the contract that I was not to give the stylist money. It was awkward to have the stylist upset with me & demanding money. I asked her to call her company b/c I had already paid in full according to the contract for their gas, time, & styling. It was resolved but it was awkward! I'm still very happy with the final product :)

Sadia was a fantastic wedding day hair stylist! The communication was outstanding: she responded within 24 hours even if they were silly questions. I wish I had her as a personal stylist! She arrived on time, finished my MOH's hair in about 30mins (she has way more hair than me), my make-up was flawless and she was very professional. I would recommend her for any occasion. Thank you for adding the sparkle and shine I needed for my wedding day, Sadia! Visit here on Facebook the pictures will speak for themselves!

We hired Jackie to do my wife’s hair and makeup for a black tie wedding. Scheduling was easy and she arrived early. My wife loved the makeup - we had sent Jackie a picture of what she wanted and she really delivered that look and adapted it to my wife’s face. What we didn’t really like and would not recommend, is getting your hair done by her. When Jackie arrived my wife’s hair was wet and she told her to blow it out herself so she could curl it. This was really confusing as we were paying $100 for hair - and wait, my wife had to blow it out herself so Jackie could curl it? We use MUA often for events and this had never been the case. We’re accustomed to end-to-end service. Also, the curls would have looked much better after a professional blow out. Because of this and because Jackie was the most expensive MUA that responded to our request, we wouldn’t say she offers a good value.

Susan did my hair and make-up for my wedding as well as a few of my bridesmaids and my mom. She was professional, easy to work with, and understood exactly what I invisioned my hair to look like. She had a very calm and confident energy that made me feel at ease on my big day! My hair and make-up turned out perfect and I was able to dance, cry, laugh, and celebrate without any make-up lost or smeared or hair falling out! I am sure that was because of her expertise and high quality supplies. You will not be disappointed with her services!!

Amanda is amazing! She listens to your needs and what you are looking for! My makeup and hair lasted all day (9am-12am). My hair didnt get frizzy and my makeup didnt fade away. She uses high end products and she has applied makeup amazingly beautifully! She is so sweet, friendly, and passionate about her work. My makeup and hair photographed really well which is very important! Love her and loved her work. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a high quality makeup that photograph very beautifully!

April is fantastic. I had her come to my hair for my city hall wedding, and she was collaborative from start to end. I shared a Pinterest board with ideas and she was perfectly able to pick up on what I liked and how to make it work with my hair type. She was fast, fun to spend time with, and my hair looked great. Can't recommend her enough!

Every bride wants to be beautiful on their wedding day, well, Ninah will make that happen for you! She was my hair stylist for my wedding and, putting modesty aside, she helped make me beautiful. I had never met her before, but from our conversations prior to my wedding day, she made me feel comfortable with her. She came highly recommended, but I was still concerned. But like I said, after speaking with her a few times, I felt totally at ease that she was one that would make my day special. She took her time, asked my opinion, and was genuinely concerned about how I was doing. If you are considering using Ninah for your hair, trust me, she's one of the BEST out there, professional, courtesy, and TIMELY!!!

She did my Hair and Makeup for a professional photoshoot and I absolutely loved it, the care and time she put into making me beautiful were a clear reflection of her fantastic skills which made me feel more confident than ever and resulted in the most fantastic experience I've ever had when getting dolled up by a true doll and professional makeup artist like her ! I totally recommend her if you're looking for an outstanding MUA!

Hazel did such a great job on my hair. I was the maid of honor for my best friends wedding and I wanted to go with an "old holly wood" look. I showed her a picture and she delivered. She came to the house and was right on time. She had everything readily available and we got to working on my hair right away. She was very funny and kept me entertained the whole time and made me feel very pretty. I loved the outcome of the hair and makeup done by Sophea and so did every one else. I would highly recommend her and will use her again in the future. I am the girl the blue dress. :)

Jelise was AMAZING! She is a sweetheart and did a great job with my makeup for a video shoot that I did with my band! I am hiring her again for our next video shoot because of how great of a makeup artist and person she is. She was punctual, nice, did a great job for my hair and makeup, and was even talkative (in a good way so there were no awkward silences)! We were happy with her work. Jelise, you are awesome!

Morsal and her team were amazing (and that's an understatement). They were patient and catered to our needs. All my girls felt gorgeous- they didn't want to wash their faces after the night was over! I felt like a very beautiful/elegant bride from the way Morsal styled me! I would hire Morsal in a heart beat & would recommend her to all my friends! Did I mention how adorable the flower girls hair was?!

Between understanding her clients needs and always shooting for the integrity of the hair and skin, Stephanie Cencibaugh is an exceptional hair and makeup artist. Her experience on sets as well as behind a salon chair make her a very experienced artist, and knows exactly what it takes to make a client happy. She is very easy to get along with and work with, and always maintains a professional image. I would highly recommend her for any job.

I had my third hair coloring with Melissa. She uses low-ammonia color. So not only I liked the color but my hair improved after the procedure. Definitely will hire again.

Rayann did my aunt, cousin and step’s daughter hair on my wedding day and the three of them looked stunning! We showed Rayann some pictures of the styles they wanted and she did an excellent job. Also, my family did mention that she was super cool and easy going; she definetly made them feel comfortable. I have only positive comments about Rayann and I recommend her 100%

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a mobile hairdresser?

A mobile hairdresser is a cosmetologist trained to cut, color and style hair who can provide hairdressing services at remote locations. Often, mobile hairdressers are hired for events such as weddings, bachelorette parties, prom night, birthdays and other occasions. The hairstylist can come to your location to do your hair, or provide hairstyling for your group.

For events, mobile hairstylists more often provide updos and formal styles than highlights or hair color. Mobile hairdressers bring all the necessary hairstyling tools and products such as lotions and sprays to create your look. The national average cost for a hairstylist is $70-$110. Pricing for different services can vary greatly depending on stylist reputation, training and regional rates. For example, haircuts could range between $35 and $150, while hair coloring services could range in price from $65 to $200. Some mobile hairstylists may include the cost of travel in their fees, while other may have it as an added charge, such as 50 cents to $1 for each mile beyond their standard service range.

What is a hair extension?

A hair extension is a beauty product designed to give you the appearance of longer and/or fuller hair. Hair extensions are made of synthetic material or real human hair and are attached to your natural hair by a variety of techniques such as a weave (sewing), hot fusion, tape-in, cold fusion, bonding, metal clips, micro ring or micro loops, and more. The type of technique you select as well as the quality and volume of the hair you choose all affect cost. Hair extensions can last anywhere from three weeks to six months, depending on the application technique. For example, tape-in extensions may last approximately four weeks, while extensions applied using a hot fusion technique may stay in for up to six months. The hot fusion technique takes longer, costs more, and requires more training on the part of the hair stylist, but the result is more natural-looking extensions that can be washed and heat-styled with confidence.

What is a seamless extension?

A seamless hair extension is a type of clip-on hair extension. The extension hair is called the weft. Near the top of the weft, a metal clip mounted to the weft on a silicone base is used to attach the extension to your natural hair. In a traditional clip-on extension, the base that attaches the metal clip to the weft is fabric.

People may prefer seamless extensions due to their lower profile; the silicone can be up to 50 percent thinner than the fabric, making the extension appear more natural — and, therefore, seamless. Seamless extensions usually can be washed (although you shouldn’t keep them submerged for more than 20 seconds) and heat-styled on lower heat settings. You can gently brush seamless hair extensions as well as have them dyed a darker color by a trained professional.

How much should you tip a hairstylist?

A hairstylist can provide you with a cut, color or highlights, or style your hair for an event. The national average cost for a hairstylist is $70-$110, but prices can vary greatly depending on the service you receive, where you live, and the salon’s or hairdresser’s reputation. A good rule of thumb is to tip your hairstylist 20 percent of your total bill. In smaller towns, 15 percent may be the norm, but in larger cities 20 percent is generally the baseline. If you frequent a salon where the shampooer, colorist, and hair cutter are all different people, you can divide that 20 percent among those service providers in proportion to the skill level and time required to do their job. Many hairstylists rent a chair from the salon and must pay a monthly rent to the salon owner.

How much do hair extensions cost?

Hair extensions are synthetic or real human hair integrations that add volume and length to your hair. Hairstylists are trained in different techniques to attach extensions to your hair. The cost of extensions can vary greatly depending on the technique used to apply the hair, as well as the type of hair you select. Synthetic hair is typically the least expensive, human hair is next on the pricing scale, remy hair is next, and what is called “virgin” human hair is generally the most sought-after and most expensive. Remy hair signifies that all the cuticles are intact and running in the same direction, making for smoother hair extensions in the long term. Hair is deemed virgin when all the hair is from one donor and has never undergone any chemical processing. Hair prices will vary from company to company; here are some examples of hair from online retailers.

  • Virgin strands (25 strands weighing approximately 1 gram each) for hot fusion application: $44 per bundle.
  • Virgin hair weave (approximately 4 ounces per package): $149 each.

Here are some sample application costs from hairstylists.

  • Full sew-in: $175-$200 or more.
  • Partial sew-in: $125 or more.
  • Micro-link weft extensions: $300 or more.
  • Full-bonded extensions: $75 or more.
