Amazing experience just like everyone else has had. Highly recommended. I was a bridesmaid and Lety did my make up and hair. Excellent communication through out the entire process from start to finish and came on time and exactly when she said she would. Extremely professional. I had oily skin and was worried my make up would not last but OMG I am so impressed. Lety airbrushed my make up and it did not budge through a long day of photos heat and dancing. AMAZING. I've had make up done before but nothing has ever looked so flawless and naturally pretty. She also did an outstanding job on my eyeshadow. It was glam and classy all in one. She really knows what she's going. My think straight corse heavy hair stayed curled until the next morning. My friends had other stylists but my hair and makeup was the only one standing at the end of the night. The quality of her work and products used left me one happy girl feeling super pretty. Will be calling Lety again!!

Sabrina is a delight to work with! She arrived right on time to our home for my daughter's senior pictures and did an awesome job with her makeup. The photographer also complimented how the makeup job was perfect for the shoot! I would highly recommend Sabrina and hope to have the occasion to use her again!

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!

Ashley is absolutely AMAZING. My husband found when we were planning our wedding for this July. I read over her reviews and was convinced. These reviews do not lie!!! You will not be disappointed. I had a trail run, which I scheduled on the day of my engagement photos. The makeup and hair turned out to be gorgeous. I loved everything about it! On the day of my wedding Ashley did my makeup and hair along with some of my bridal parties makeup and hair. Everyone look GORGEOUS!! She did so great on working with everyone's different skin tone and hair and making them look flawless. Not only did she do an amazing job, but everyone's makeup lasted ALL night, even mine. After sweating almost all night from nerves and dancing, I went to my bridal room right before leaving and saw that my makeup and hair (which is amazing because i was SUPER thin hair and very little of it) still looked the way it did when I started. I was AMAZED! Not only is Ashley great at what she does but she is so sweet, genuine, funny and so easy to talk to. While doing our makeup and hair my girls were having a blast talking to her. I will definitely be hiring her again if I ever need my makeup done for any special occasion and I know my bridal party feels the same way. Plus, she is super easy to work with. I must have change the amount of people getting their hair and makeup done and the style of hair I wanted to my wedding hundreds of times, but she was so sweet and so helpful and understanding of my crazy indecisive personality.

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.

Devlyn was fantastic! She put together outfits with pieces I'd been having trouble with and kept a good attitude throughout, even when I (who gets very stressed out by fashion and shopping) started to wane. She was prompt in getting me photos of these outfits and a personalized shopping list of things I need to buy, and offered up great suggestions for places to shop on a budget. Very down to earth -- was a treat.

Working with Julie was a total breeze, I would recommend her to anyone for makeup! I was searching for a makeup artist for the wedding and stumbled upon Julie's page. I am typically a very low-maintenance type, I don't typically wear makeup during the week, so I just wanted to look like an enhanced version of myself. And, budget friendly was a MUST! Upon first interaction with Julie, I was really amazed by her professionalism. She was ON IT. Count on prompt, detailed responses. She is very open and honest about her product and what my experience with her would be like. She has you fill out a consult form and send looks of makeup you'd like. I was really impressed by the detail- allergies, what your skin type is like, etc. She was also very conscious of my budget and worked with me for what I was looking for. Anyway, we did a trial for the engagement shoot, and spent some time going over looks and trying out shades that worked for my skin. Julie spent SO much focused time on me for my trial. We had a lot of fun working together as she is very easy to get along with. Julie's esthetician background influences her focus on skin. I love how she "pampers" the brides with a special mask before applying the makeup. It really makes your skin glow once all the makeup is done. I've never had my skin look so good! After seeing the engagement photos, I loved the natural look, but wanted a more dramatic look for the wedding. I trusted that she would nail it and she totally did. She made my eyes pop exactly how I wanted them to! I save the best two things for last: 1) We were at the wedding venue from 1:00 pm until 10 pm on an 85 degree day. I spent the entire night after dinner (about 6-10 pm) dancing. So imagine the toll that would take on my makeup. There was a photo taken of me right after and my makeup STILL looked in credible after all that sun and dancing! That was what really sold me on Julie. Not only is the initial product good, but it STAYED good the whole night despite the "wear and tear". That was my biggest "WOW" factor. 2) After the wedding... keep in mind this was well AFTER the wedding. I remembered "hey, Julie knows skincare, maybe she can give me some advice". I sent her a quick email asking about her favorite products and what my skin care goals were, and, in total Julie fashion, I get an incredibly helpful and detailed response for how to take care of my skin! Another big WOW. I couldn't believe how generous she was, even after my event was over. Julie is someone who really cares and is quick and happy to help. Could not recommend her more. Thank you, Julie, for making me look so fly on my special day!

Absolutely loved Pryscilla!! She did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. Everyone thought I looked stunning, which couldn't have happened without her. She was also extremely helpful, even at the wedding during our photo shoot! She made sure I was satisfied with everything and made any adjustments I wanted with no problem. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thanks Pryscilla!! 😁

Zorahayda was great to work with - she was super responsive to all my emails and questions throughout the planning process. She was very flexible in terms of timing for the day-of. She did my bridal hair & makeup, as well as 3 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. She was SO wonderful to work with. At my trial she took the time to understand what I liked and didn't like, then based on inspiration was able to create a style that was perfect! I got so many amazing compliments on my hair on the day-of and it was all due to her! I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!

I have known Amy for years. She has advised me on fashion multiple times and for a wide variety of occasions. For example, I had a very fancy summer wedding to attend. I was on a budget (I wanted to spend $200 or less) and Amy immediately suggested that I go to the Tadashi Shoji store at South Coast Plaza. She found a beautiful midnight blue dress that fit me perfectly! (And for just $160)!!! She helped me complete my entire outfit with a pair of gorgeous nude pumps. I've never received more compliments in my life!! Another example of Amy's fashion expertise is when I did a boudoir photo shoot. Amy wanted a vintage 1950's pin up look for me. She took me shopping and put together an outfit that was classy and incredibly sexy! One last example I have to share is also the most recent. A couple of months ago I went to see Lady Gaga in concert. I wanted a fun, sexy outfit that was not too over-the-top. Once again, Amy hit it out of the park. No matter what the occasion or your budget, Amy has the fashion knowledge to make you look and feel beautiful. I just chose these examples to show how wide of a range her understanding of fashion is. If you let Amy be your fashion consultant, you will NOT regret it! I don't know what I'd do without her! She absolutely knows her stuff and you will end up looking AMAZING!

I've been working with Mikado stylists for about a year and absolutely love what they do. I don't have to think about going to the mall or figuring out what to wear. As a man, that was always a real stressor for me. Now it is completely taken care of. I know what to wear to work and what to wear for leisure, I always have great clothes and never need to deal with shopping.

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.

The first time I used Vergara Make up and glam I had a very important photo shoot . I can say I had the best make up I have ever got in the last 10 years in LA. The most important thing when I get my make up done is to look classy and sophisticated. I haven't got my make up done with anyone else after Vergara make up glam .

I''ve been trusting my hair and makeup needs to the ladies who work here for a few months now and they do an excellent job. I don't feel the need to have just one hair stylist anymore because everyone who works here is amazing and does exactly what i am looking for! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new stylist or someone who is just in town for the weekend. You wont be disappointed.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
