I loved having Teresa do hair and makeup for my wedding. She did a great job explaining the process and during our trial, which helped me try out different looks before the big day. Then on the day of the wedding she came early and made everyone look fabulous! She's got this special way of making everyone look gorgeous without looking like they're wearing a ton of makeup. My face stayed put all day, although she gave me a touch up kit which was helpful for after wedding tears. Teresa made everyone's hair look great too! We all were able to get the look we wanted. Teresa listened and offered suggestions along the way. I really appreciated her humor and sweetness as she got us dolled up.

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.

I loved how my make up and hair was done for my wedding! It was exactly what I wanted and it looked flawless throughout the whole day. She did an awesome job and was so sweet! She also did my maid of honor and my mom's makeup which turned out so beautiful as well. We all were so happy with this experience. I will definitely have Cynthya do my hair and makeup again!

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!!!

Jesse did the makeup for my sister and her bridesmaids and he did an amazing job! I honestly could not have hoped for a better experience or been happier. I was in charge of doing the booking for my sister because she lives out of state and throughout the whole process Jesse was very easy to communicate with, replied in a timely manner and always answered questions I may have had. It was my first time booking someone for these types of services so I was a bit nervous but as soon as Jesse started working all my nerves were settled. A couple days before the wedding I sent him some photos of a couple looks all the girls liked and the day of he produced. Every girl looked gorgeous and loved her makeup. And we all know pleasing a group of women is hard to do! Jesse also recommended a hair stylist to me who was also fabulous and did a great job on the girls' hair. I 110% recommend Jesse and would hire him again if ever need be!

Mai did an amazing job with my makeup. I had a quinceañera and needed my hair & makeup and some of my damas hair and makeup done. She worked very efficiently and was able to get us all done on time for pictures. Mai is very flexible and will work with you to make sure you get what you’re looking for. I definitely recommend Mai Artistry for anyone looking to get good quality makeup.

I loved my make up, they used quality make up, and really listened to exactly what I wanted and didn’t want. My hair didn’t look exactly like my hair trial (due to having different hair dressers). Overall, they were really punctual, professional, and flexible as we often had to take picture and video breaks in between! :-)

Jaime was my Bridal hairstylist and she made the experience perfect. She helped me color my hair up to the wedding to the perfect shade of Auburn. She interpreted the multiple styles I showed her on Pinterest and came up with the perfect blend of an updo and having it all down. She recommended the most amazing makeup artist. Your hair and makeup artist spend the whole day with you and Jaime is not only professional but so fun to be around. She did a few of my bridesmaid's hair and they were all overjoyed by the outcome. She balances what the bride wants and what the bridesmaids want like a pro, leaving everyone satisfied. I recommend her fully! She even helped my nervous mom relax and feel pampered after running around setting up. If you want to enjoy the getting ready process, look no further than Jaime!

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?!

We hired Mackenzie to do both my hair and makeup for our 6 year Anniversary where my husband rented a tux, and I bought an old style banquet dress for our evening date on the Napa Valley Wine Train. I wanted a style that was vintage/classic, but not over the top like a costume. Mackenzie was amazing. Calm and confident, following my preference but also making knowledgeable suggestions. Her work was quick, and she by far surpassed my expectations. She is very nice and keeps the conversation going during the work. This is someone that knows what she is doing and is a professional throughout the entire process.

Mariam made my bridal hair/makeup dreams come true and more! I showed up to the trial with some pictures and ideas already in mind but Mariam suggested simple touches to my ideas and worked hard to come up with something even better!! She did hair/makeup for my mom and I. She really listened to what we asked for and made changes until we were completely satisfied. Our hair looked beautiful and despite dancing and even jumping in the pool, our makeup stayed intact! Not only is Mariam talented as a hairstylist/ make-up artist, she's got a friendly personality that turned getting ready into the girly gab fest it should be! We all had so much fun and felt so beautiful the entire day. Thank you again!!

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.
