Rebecca helped us with hair and makeup for the wedding of my son. Although she had some car problems, she was able to get us ready in time for family picture taking. Knowing that the brides family and friends were having hair and makeup done also and that professional pictures were being taken, Rebecca helped us to feel and look our ultimate best for the occasion. We can't thank her enough.

Priscylla is an incredible makeup artist and hair stylist extending across all age, skin, and hair types. I had myself, my mother, mother inlaw, 3 bridesmaids, and aunt done by priscylla on my wedding day and I was more than pleased. My sister is fair skinned, red headed, and my other two bridesmaids had dark hair and varying skin tones. Everyone looked incredible. Thank you for making us look so fantastic on our wedding day Priscylla! P.S. Priscylla was incredibly responsive and ALWAYS treated me kindly. I highly recommend her!

I am so happy to have found Julie as my makeup artist. If there was one thing I was really stressed about for my wedding it was the makeup. I wanted to look like me and not a cakey overdone mess. I was so worried about it that I made up my mind, after already acquiring quotes which included Julie, that I would do my own makeup even though I knew that would stress me out even more. But my bridesmaids still wanted there makeup done so I went on the hunt again and luckily Julie was still available. I set up a consultation with Julie and told her the change of plans that it would be for my bridesmaids only and after seeing her work on my sister who very rarely wears makeup I was so impressed and excited that I changed my mind once again. I absolutely loved loved loved my makeup I was so happy to look like myself but just a little more glam haha. I felt comfortable and confident. She was so sweet and flexible especially at the end when we had to add more girls and some wanted specifics. Her and her assistant were so great and I would definitely definitely recommend and book Julie again. :)

Rachel is the best! She did my hair & makeup for the Grammys this year, and it was amazing! The experience was great from beginning to end- Rachel is communicative, punctual, and very passionate about her work. She makes the process easy and enjoyable, and I would recommend her to anyone! I worried that my makeup may not stay for the crazy 12-hr day I was prepping for and that my pin-straight hair may not take the waves I was wanted for my look... but I'm ecstatic to report that everything looked perfect day to night! Rachel is extremely talented and a top-notch MUA/stylist with professional experience and a growing resume of happy clients to prove it, and I am happy to be a part of that list! 5 stars all the way- thank you for everything Rachel!!

Alyssa was highly responsive from beginning to end, and remained a constant professional when we needed her to be flexible (as often is the case with unexpected changes at the last minute with weddings). She came prepared and was friendly throughout. She did absolutely great job with my hair and makeup. My only reservation was she was booked for other engagements and could not be flexible by staying later and that cut into the time it took to do the makeup for my mom. Instead of doing my moms hair I wished that time was spent dedicated on doing her makeup only. In my initial request, Alyssa was booked for makeup only for my mom so when she asked if my mom wanted hair too, we assumed she had time to do both the makeup and hair, and we did not think twice when Alyssa started with my mom’s hair first. My moms makeup was really the priority as I had requested. Alyssa did provide a $15 discount for the “light makeup” and I appreciate she did that. If given an opportunity to work with Alyssa again, I would book her again in a heart beat however my recommendation would be she clearly communicate given time restrictions on a day like; by asking if my mom wanted her hair done also lead us to believe she had enough time to do both. I would have preferred she concentrated on the makeup only as we had discussed prior.

Maribel I was so lucky to have you for a hair & makeup artist. You did an amazing job and I have never felt more beautiful in my life than on that day. Even after all the tears I shed during the ceremony, my makeup stayed intact for pictures and the reception. You are very talented at what you do. Thank you again for everything!

Just excellent! I did a trial for my wedding with Zorahayda and absolutely loved the result! She did my makeup and hair for my wedding and she and her team also did hair and makeup for my sister, mother and mother-in-law. The final result was simply stunning!!! I was incredibly happy - everyone looked absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend her - she is professional, easy to work with and most importantly talented!

Samantha is INCREDIBLE at what she does and was a pure joy to work with. Weddings are stressful and she was the least stressful part about it. She had no idea what hair type and makeup the girls wanted and was able to accommodate all of our needs. I wish I had photos to post but our photographer is still working on them. All I can say is, FLAWLESS! THANKS SAMANTHA!!!

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 needed a last minute hair and makeup artist for our company event and I was so happy I found Lesley! Not knowing exactly how I wanted to look, she took the lead and created her work of art. She did an absolutely flawless job! She worked with my skin type, and easily blended the perfect color of foundation for my skin tone. She's super cool with a calming presence. I've received a lot of compliments about my look the entire night. I'd definitely recommend her!

I don't write many reviews but Fix Beauty Co. really deserves one! They went above and beyond for my wedding day. They were quick responding when I had any questions leading up to my wedding day, they showed up on time, got all 6 girls hair and makeup done on time! The best part is that our hair and makeup DID stay looking great all night long. I definitely recommend Fix Beauty Co. and their artists for you wedding day or special event!

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.
