I highly recommend Julie! Julie is fabulous. She styled my hair and did my makeup for a professional photo shoot for my business profile. I am extremely happy with Julie's service. She is professional, very experienced, and had an excellent understanding of the look I wanted and needed for my photo shoot. I plan to add my photo soon.

Lindsey is one of the best hair stylists that I've ever worked with. I hired Lindsey to style my hair before a large conference I was hosting. She traveled to my hotel every morning. She was extremely prompt and very fun to work with. Not only did my hair look absolutely stunning, I received many compliments online and in person. I am so grateful that she helped me look my best when I needed it. I would work with her every day if I could. I highly recommend her services. She is talented, professional, flexible and extremely friendly! Lindsey, thank you. I can't wait to see you again in the Spring!

I really could not be happier with the True Virtue team. They arrived on time with a great attitude and ended up leaving us some supplies that would help remove the body paint. They both worked on three different models for a body paint photo-shoot and finished right on time. I will definitely be booking them again and would recommend them for anyone wanting talented and professional make-up artists.

I am soooo late writing this - about a year! I hired Hienny for my wedding last April 1, 2017 Hienny was great to work with and really understood my vision. She came to my home for my hair and makeup trial, which I did befrore my engagement photos. She also put together a team for the day of the wedding to do hair and makeup for my whole bridal party - 9 bridesmaids and my mother and I. It was certainly a circus with a few tiny timing hiccups - but considering the sheer workload we were all very happy! Everyone looked beautiful! I definitely recommend her - she's easy to talk to and understands all the latest trends and has a well stocked kit. Now that I have moved to Newport Beach and closer to her I will be calling her for events! I'l try to uplaod a few photos if the sizing will alow me. Thanks again Hienny!

We needed someone to do stage makeup for my 15 year old and MissO was perfect! She made my daughter look stage ready without the "caked on" look; on the contrary the makeup looked quite natural. She's very professional, friendly and talented and her price point is reasonable. I'd definitely recommend her and am looking forward to hiring her again soon for our family photo shoot.

Paru is a fantastic makeup artist! She traveled all the way to my apartment to get me ready for a photo shoot , and it could not have turned out better. She knew exactly how to pick colors that complimented my cool undertones, and she's an expert at giving you a clean and natural finish that plays up your best features and that will give your photos a timeless look (which is perfect for those of us who don't like the heavily contoured, Instagram/Kylie Jenner-inspired look that many other makeup artists do). Paru's rates are very reasonable, especially considering how she travels TO YOU! She uses high-quality makeup brands like Anastasia, and she cleans all her tools after every single customer (a BIG plus for a germaphobe like me lol). I was very pleased with how my makeup turned out. I would totally use Paru again and would recommend her to anyone.

I hired Cynthia to do my makeup because she is so talented! She has the makeup experience that ranges from subtle to dramatic, fun to romantic; and she was so accommodating! I loved my consultation look and feel even more in love with her work on my wedding day. She exceeded my expectations!! I showed Cynthia a photo of the look I wanted and she customized it to highlight my best features. She has great intuition when making artistic decisions and teaches while she applies. It was important for Cynthia to make sure that I didn’t feel over done. My makeup lasted all day!

Veronica is so sweet and thoughtful with her work! She did a half up half down ‘do for my graduation photo shoot and made me beautiful! She was able to imitate the hairdo from a photo I showed her just a few days before. The service was amazing but what really matters is the end product and trust me when I tell you, she delivered! Thanks hon! I’ll definitely be scheduling an appointment with you soon for some special occasions ❤️

I usually dont write reviews but Veronica literally saved my hair! about two years ago I asked my hairstylist (i wont put his name on blast) to lighten my hair. All i wanted was choolate brown ( i was a dark brown already). He said he had to beach it and then dye it...i was ok with it...he ended up burning my head! I got blisters all over ( i still have neck scars from the blisters, they're sooooo ugly). It was like movie....when he washed my hair (after i was almost crying because of the burning) my haor started to fall out!!!!! I was left with verrrry thin,brittle, and crisppy hair. I was so embarssed. I was left with no choice but to find aaother hair stylist. I was referred to Veronica by a friend. As you can imagine i was skeptical and hesitant about letting someone touch my hair. But i reached out to her anyway and im glad i did. She condotioned my hair and nursed it back to health and didnt charge me an arm and a leg to do it! She got the ugly color out of it and taught me how to style it without having to use any straightners or curling irons. My hair is thick and healthy now. She is really sweet, patient, and afforable (and she even makes house visits 🙌). Now i use her for everything! Her and her team are doing the hair and make up (i love he way she does my makeup... she makes me look like a persian goddess and im mexican lol) my wedding and i couldnt be happier! I hate to share her (my secret beauty weapon) with everyone. But i know how terrible it feels not to feel like yourself because someone burnt your hair, cut too much, or charged too much. If your looking for a miracle at a descent price, call her! Thank you for all you've done for my haor Veronica. I hope this review was helpful guys.

Dionah, is the true definition of a skilled hair stylist with the ability to work with diverse clientele. I have naturally, unprocessed/non relaxed, African American hair. She colors, cuts, blowouts and styles my hair straight. She uses state of the art products that bring moisture, shine and bounce to my hair. I do not have a before photo but this photo shows how I feel and look after. - E

Nadia Rose/Bridal Beauty by Nadia Rose was superb. Nadia is the only person that has ever been able to get my curls to hold! She's like a magician (or an angel seems more accurate lol) Nadia is such a talented hair stylist. I give her five plus ✨ stars, and I highly recommend her to anyone in search of a hairstylist. I look forward to hopefully working with her again in the future for my wedding anniversary when we renew our vows. Nadia is a great listener, punctual, hard working, professional, responsive, and will exceed all of your expectations! Thanks for making me look beautiful on my big day Nadia! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After having the same stylist for 13 years, I moved to San Diego and was in need of someone new. Ashley took time to understand my needs and was very open to my requests. At my appointment, she was on time and ready for me. My color and cut turned out beautiful, and I scheduled my next appointment with her.

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.

How much do wedding makeup artists cost?

A wedding means love, celebration and tons of wedding photos. Professional wedding makeup artists have you looking your best on your big day and forever after in your wedding photos. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, although this price can increase based on your location, the extent of the makeup services and the reputation of the makeup artist. Most wedding makeup artists offer discounts to brides who book group services for their maids, mothers and flower girls at the same time. Wedding makeup artists who also do wedding hair usually offer package rates for hair and makeup combos. Here are some examples of average wedding makeup pricing:

  • Bridal makeup: $85-$125. Pricing often includes full face, eyes, lips, brows and false eyelashes. Airbrush makeup may be an additional $20 or more.
  • Bridal hair and makeup: $150-$200.
  • Bridesmaid and bridal party makeup: $50-$100 per person.
  • Bridesmaid hair and makeup: $100-$150.
  • Flower girl makeup: $25-$35.
  • Trial sessions: $60-$120, depending on the makeup artist. Some charge their full rate and others charge a partial rate for trial makeup services.
  • Hourly rates to stay on and keep makeup touched up throughout reception: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Travel fees: 50 cents to $1 per additional mile beyond a set radius — such as 50 miles.
