Chantelle's team was great, and everything worked out perfectly for my wedding hair and makeup. Chantelle organized stylists to do the hair and makeup for me, my mom, and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. The stylists, Reese and Shannon, were amazing and I was thrilled with them! I completely recommend them!

Working with Teresa to coordinate hair/makeup for myself, my bridesmaids and my groom's mother was amazing! She was professional, approachable, and flexible. She worked with my schedule to find a trial date that worked for my bridal hair/makeup. She also was very flexible in accommodating my large bridal party. She traveled to us, allowing us to get ready in the comfort of our hotel room before traveling to the wedding venue. She offered valuable advice on hair styles and makeup to myself and my bridesmaid, and her work was flawless! She made me feel beautiful and confident on my wedding day, and I can't count the number of compliments I received on both my hair and makeup that day. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Vinnia was fantastic!!! I couldn't have been happier with my wedding hair and makeup. All of my communication with Vinnia was done through email since I live out of the country. She was amazing at suggesting ideas for my hair and makeup. She was always very prompt with replying to my emails. I wasn't sure what to do with my hair since I was growing it out and I had only had my makeup professionally done once before. I showed Vinnia a picture of how I wanted my hair and she styled it turned out even better than I imagined. I had so many compliments on it! My makeup was beautiful too. Vinnia kept checking to make sure that I was happy and anything I wanted changed wasn't a problem at all. All of my bridesmaids and my mother had their hair and makeup done too. Vinnia and her assistant arrived on time and had all of us done within the time frame she provided. There was no rushing around, it was very relaxed and pampering. My makeup and hair lasted all night long! I highly recommend Vinnia as a professional, experienced, and high quality makeup artist and hair stylist.

This was the most spectacular service! The “glam squad” did hair and makeup for 14 young ladies for a homecoming dance. It was the greatest day ever.

Amanda is amazing! She listens to your needs and what you are looking for! My makeup and hair lasted all day (9am-12am). My hair didnt get frizzy and my makeup didnt fade away. She uses high end products and she has applied makeup amazingly beautifully! She is so sweet, friendly, and passionate about her work. My makeup and hair photographed really well which is very important! Love her and loved her work. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a high quality makeup that photograph very beautifully!

Audra was wonderful to work with for my small backyard wedding and she was a delight to have present on my wedding day! Such a kind and welcoming personality and very professional. She did both hair and makeup for myself and my two bridesmaids and all three looks were beautiful. I wanted a more natural look and she listened to all my requests and delivered exactly what I wanted. Very punctual and arrived on time for both the makeup trial and day of wedding services. Easy to communicate with and set up appointments. I highly recommend her!

Hazel was recommended to me by a friend. I don’t wear makeup often and so I had a lot of questions. She was super sweet and we talked about the style of hair/makeup done for my work event—she even responded to my questions while she was away on vacation! Hazel was responsive to my suggestions and I found the fact that she wanted to prep for the appointment refreshing. She is the upmost professional and made me feel so comfortable in my skin. The makeup lasted the whole event—it even lasted an hour walk in balmy weather. I wouldn’t think twice to book her again.

Had a great experience with Stephanie. She was very easy going and had a great personality, which made my mom and I feel very comfortable. She worked with us prior to the date for how we wanted our hair and makeup done as well as provided us examples of different looks and styles. We loved our finished looks...... I would definitely use her again!!!!!!

Jelise was AMAZING! She is a sweetheart and did a great job with my makeup for a video shoot that I did with my band! I am hiring her again for our next video shoot because of how great of a makeup artist and person she is. She was punctual, nice, did a great job for my hair and makeup, and was even talkative (in a good way so there were no awkward silences)! We were happy with her work. Jelise, you are awesome!

Pinky arrived a bit late, but called to check in with me. She worked efficiently and quickly and got my makeup done in time for me to get dressed in spite of some phone calls (on my part). She was pleasant and seemed to know a lot about makeup. Well done, and a nice person.

I had a 1920's party to attend and it was was costume required. I am not good with doing my own hair and makeup. I contacted Glamourmaid Cosmetic Artistry Consultant Tasha for help. She replied immediately! I left all makeup and hair decision making to her. I absolutely loved the final product! I felt so beautiful. Tasha is very focused while doing her job, she was on time, researched what she wanted to do with my makeup and hair. I look forward to working with her in the future and will recommend her services.

Jaiya has cut my hair for years and has always done an exceptional job. She reliably performs the same cut when I want it and I've never been afraid to trust her with something new when the inspiration hit. She has also fixed cuts when I have had to get my hair cut by other stylists. Jaiya is a very visual person and can both listen and communicate about the shape of a cut. She is attentive to detail and is very conscientious. She is also a warm and gracious person which always makes getting a haircut a more enjoyable experience. I regularly recommend her to my friends!

Between understanding her clients needs and always shooting for the integrity of the hair and skin, Stephanie Cencibaugh is an exceptional hair and makeup artist. Her experience on sets as well as behind a salon chair make her a very experienced artist, and knows exactly what it takes to make a client happy. She is very easy to get along with and work with, and always maintains a professional image. I would highly recommend her for any job.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
