I hired Jacynda and her team for my wedding. One month before my wedding my previous hair and makeup artist fell through. I was able to book the date just a month in advance! She was also able to do a last minute hair and make up trial for me the day of my bridal shower. This was a great first impression. She was punctual and very professional. I don't know much about make up, so she made some great suggestion. I also showed them a couple of pictures of what I liked for hair and make up and they easily worked with it. The day of my wedding they arrived early which was great. They worked through my bridal party quickly, but made sure that the girls got the look they wanted. It was a hectic day and they were both very calm and light hearted. They really made us look very beautiful. I would definitely recommend Plush Artistry! Thank you so, so much!

Thank you so much for making me look perfect! As a model I am very picky with how makeup artists do my makeup. However I was very impressed with Phoebe. She really knows what she is doing. I told her I had a long day of shooting ahead so she recommended I do the Airbrush foundation so I did and I absolutely loved it! I wish she could do my makeup like that everyday. The makeup wore great never fading or having to retouch never got oily! It was definetely the best. All of my photos looked perfect as far as the makeup went. Phoebe is very professional and highly recommended in my book. She is now my go to makeup artist for all my shoots. I am so glad my friend recommended her to me.

Sara was absolutely amazing. She understood exactly what I wanted to look like for my big day and was able to make me look better than I had expected. What I loved about Sara is that she offers free hair and makeup trials which is such a money saver. She is very accommodating and will offer her opinion on what she thinks will work for you. She has a great eye for what she thinks will make you look your best on your day. I couldn't have been more happy with how my hair and makeup turned out to be. Sara is so nice, easy to talk to and a great makeup/hair artist! If you want to look breathtaking on your big day, you have to hire Sara. You will not regret it.

Pageant girls look no further! I hired Christine to do my hair and makeup to compete in a recent pageant. Christine and her team transformed a plain Jane working mom into a glamorous beauty queen. I felt amazing! Christine made me look flawless. She gave me smoky eyes, airbrushed my foundation and paired the perfect red lipstick to complete the look. Christine stayed with me throughout the entire competition and went above and beyond her duties as a makeup artist. She helped me changed into my evening gown. She touched up my makeup and she cheered for me in the audience. In pageants, we need to look and feel our best when we compete. I truly believe that Christine gave me the added confidence that I needed to take home the crown. I will be forever thankful to Christine and her team for helping me achieve my dreams of becoming Mrs. Asia San Diego 2016.

I can't say enough good things about Steph!! I hired her to do our hair and makeup for my wedding. We don't live in California so we didn't get to do a practice run but it didn't matter, I was thrilled with the results! I interacted with several hair and makeup professionals but from the start, Steph was the most professional and most on-top of everything. Everyone was so happy with their hair and makeup, and it lasted all night. She was able to take our ideas, offer some advice and get us the look we wanted. Hire her! She will make you feel beautiful and special!

SUPER SATISFIED Sweet Sixteen mom and daughter(s)!!!! LIz truly is an artist with both hair and makeup. I communicated my daughter's wishes with Liz via text, emai, and phone conversations. She was clear and honest about what would be possible for my daughters' hair and she did not disappoint. She listened to our ideas and also shared some of her own. Liz arrived on time, was super organized with professional makeup and decorative hair supplies, and was easy to work with. After finishing my 16 year old's hair and makeup she offered to braid my younger daughter's hair and apply some makeup free of charge. So SWEET!!! We definitely recommend Brides by Liz for hair and makeup for any special event.

Phoebe did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my 1920s themed wedding, we didn’t even do a trial run before. I was able to show her my dress and explain to her what I wanted and she delivered. I normally do my own makeup for everything since I love makeup, but I’m so glad I decided to get it done. I’m still continuing to get compliments on my look. I definitely would recommend her for your bridal needs!

I have worked with Julie on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. She does an amazing job enhancing a person’s natural beauty. I love working with her because she is an extremely talented artist and is always professional. It really makes a difference when your makeup artist listens to what you want and understands the look you are going for- Julie nails it every time! She has traveled the world as a makeup artist and is one of the top artists in our nation, I feel so fortunate to have such an amazing makeup artist here in San Diego! She is passionate about her artistry and really cares about perfecting each clients look! She always makes us feel so beautiful. Julie goes above and beyond. She has always does a fantastic job with my makeup over the last decade and always uses quality products. I highly recommend her for any event!

I met up with Amanda, and her co-worker Erin on Sunday to do my trial for my wedding day :) Amanda did hair, and Erin-her friend- did my makeup:) They were so very sweet and kind, and what an amazing job! I haven't felt like a princess since I was a little girl, but man, I felt like a queen all day in my professional makeup and hair! They were able to open up their salon on their day off! Sunday is my only day off, so they accommodated me, and it was nice to be all alone in the studio :) Nice and quite :) They will travel to me on my wedding day, and I couldn't be more pleased! Thank you!! <3

Blue is a true professional. I made my appointment with him from New York. He was reassuring and helpful. I needed to get dolled up my step daughter’s wedding. He stepped in and found a hair stylist, Sade who did an amazing job with my hair. I was able too keep the style for a week. Blue arrived fully equipped – high chair, lights, folding table, extension cord and makeup. He transformed me! I felt beautiful and I got quite a few compliments. My step daughter thought I looked lovely and expressed appreciation for the effort I made. I highly recommend Blue. He will bring out the best in you. He is worth every last dime I paid. Thank you Blue.

I can not say enough about how wonderful Chandra was not only on my wedding day but through the whole process. I was in desperate need of a makeup artist for my fast approaching wedding and a friend of mine referred me to Chandra. I reached out to her and she immediately responded back with what her bridal package includes and the pricing for myself and for my bridesmaids. All i wanted was a great makeup artist that would do airbrush and after seeing her list of credentials and her work on Facebook I could tell she does amazing work! Chandra was so helpful and accommodating through the whole process especially since it was hard for me to see her for our trial run since I live in the Bay area currently and she is in San Diego where my wedding was also being held. For various reasons we weren't able to meet for the trial run and I put my faith in her hands and met her in person for the first time the morning of my wedding and all i can say is I didn't regret not one thing. She did a fabulous job and I loved my very first airbrushing experience, all my bridesmaids were so very happy with how their airbrush makeup turned out as well and it definitely lasted all night long and I'm prone to get very oily in my T-zone! One last thing I wanted to mention that I loved about my experience was even though we never met until my wedding day, she treated me like a best friend from the get go with checking in on my planning, making sure I was staying calm through the process and not stressing and asking if there was anything she could do to help me!! What makeup artist who you've never met before does that and asks if you need help wedding planning!? Well I told her I was still in need of a hair stylist after the one I booked flaked on me and she referred me to Victoriaghairdesign who is a God with hair by the way lol. Chandra was a life saver for my wedding and is a person I would definitely trust any of my friend's weddings with.

Cindy was able to drive out to my house, arrived on time and with a great attitude to do my make up for graduation. Not only was she professional throughout the entire time, but she communicated what she envisioned for my make up and made sure that i felt comfortable and was pleased with the outcome. I love that she really focused on highlighting and extenuating my facial features with her work. She did especially amazing with facial coverage, eyebrows, and making sure my makeup blended well so as to not look “cakey”. I definitely recommend her!

Ms. Kristin and her assistant Ella executed a wonderful program for children from small to the teenager at our church's capital campaign kickoff held on Cinco de Mayo 5/5/18. The small children loved the face painting and sparkles that Kristin applied. Even I, something more than a teenager, loved my Wonder Woman look. After dinner, Kristin held 19 children, again a wide variety of ages, in the palm of her hand while they explored canvas art work...blending colors, learning to apply paint and creating magical roses for the hair. It was an amazing evening, and each budding artist left with a painting of Frida Kahlo. It was a night to remember. Thank you Kristin and Ella!

Amazing work on my hair and makeup. I’m EXTREMELY picky And very particular about how other people do my hair and make up. Often times I don’t like people to do it for me and I like to just do it myself but I trust Meztli to do it just the way I ask. Give her a shot you won’t be disappointed!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

How do you choose the right makeup artist for your wedding?

A wedding makeup artist can ensure a flawless look on your big day. Finding the perfect person isn’t all about price, though. Here are tips for choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding:

  • Research before reaching out. Wedding makeup artists should have an online presence with portfolios of their work. Find someone with an aesthetic you love.
  • Read reviews. You want a wedding makeup artist who’ll be on time, do beautiful work, and add a positive vibe to your day. Pay attention if previous clients report bad experiences with a makeup artist.
  • Consider skin tones. If your bridal party has a range of skin tones, make sure your wedding makeup artist and assistants are experienced and talented working with everyone.
  • Is your top pick available on your date? If so, put down a deposit to secure their services.
  • Confirm rates and payment. Clearly discuss prices and payment plans, and sign a detailed contract so there are no surprises on your wedding day.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
