I had moved to Los Gatos by way of New York City and was very nervous to try a new local spot. After a few mishaps in other lash spas I called Mayra and she walked me through her products, process and prices. I cannot express how HAPPY I am to have found this gem of a spot. Let me explain something: I am ROUGH on my lashes and face. Camping, traveling, motorcycling.... you name it. I will never go without lashes from Mayra again. They always have incredible staying power and look naturally beautiful. I would (and have) recommended this spot to anyone that is tempted to try eyelash extensions for the first time or if they are interested in trying a new spot.

I worked with StyleBee for hair and makeup services for myself and my bridal party and was beyond satisfied! Stylists were professional, friendly, accommodating, and overall contributed to a positive wedding day experience! I received many compliments, especially on my hair. And the ease of the stylists coming to us, rather than going as a group to a salon, cannot be overstated.

I first went to to yvonne after years and years of mediocre hair results. I didn't know my hair had the potential it did until my hair collided with her mastery! I realize now, u don't truly know what having amazing hair is like if you've never experienced it. I even saw a different stylist, after seeing her, when she wasnt available and i was desperate. They were good....but they werent yvonne. Since then, i didn't allow anyone else to touch my finicky and borderline untamable hair. I live in NH and yvonne was in VA....i literally would fly to her just to get my hair done!!!! If that doesnt speak volumes, then i don't know what does. Then yvonne sold her salon and moved to California......i died inside! It wasnt the salon that stole my heart.....it was yvonne, so going to the same salon was not, and is not, an option in my mind. I knew she would feel awful if i expressed this to her, so i waited.....and longed for the possibility of her return. I went 2 years with not allowing another soul to even so much as trim my hair. I finally caved and told her. This phenomenal woman ended up going out of her way to recommend a comparable stylist, and then spoke with him through facetime and messaging for HOURS, guiding him through my hair and my personality so that i got the best possible outcome. She did all this from across the country, without hesitation, and with nothing to gain from it. There aren't words for the empathy this woman possesses, nor for her insane skills! Although her temporary replacement was great, he is not her. Once you've had the best....u can never have less than it. A client for LIFE!!!!!

    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!!

    Charm is an excellent hairdresser! With her expertise knowledge and skill, she has made my hair amazing, which has given me confidence that I didn't have before. For the past 13 years, I've had a disorder which causes hair loss due to uncontrollable hair pulling. My head was covered in bald and thinning patches that were extremely difficult to conceal, and I was looking for a good way to cover the spots while my hair grew out. I went to other salons prior to visiting Charm and none of them were able to help me in the way that I needed, some weren't able to work with me at all with the condition my hair was in. I went into this looking to get extensions, though with Charm's knowledge and experience we changed this idea to give me a sew-in wig. Charm purchased, designed, and installed the whole thing herself, which was extremely helpful to me since I went into this not knowing what to do or what to expect. Needless to say, the end result was fantastic. Charm did a great job selecting color, constructing the piece, and then attaching it to my own hair so that I could sleep and shower in it. She even provided helpful tips for styling and maintaining the hair's life so that I could have it as long as possible. I've had my sew-in for the past few months and I love it! It has drastically improved my quality of life and confidence in myself. My hair has also grown back in a lot since the installation. I'm excited to see the end result when my own hair grows out to an even length and can be worn naturally, and I will continue to see Charm for her excellent work!

    About

    I’m doing something I’ve loved since I was a kid. I’ve always loved beauty, and have been giving people makeovers my whole life. I used to play with makeup (and had my own play makeup) when I was young, and really started experimenting with my own makeup since I was officially allowed to wear it in 6th grade. I’m lucky that my mom and my sister would always do her own makeup, and was my role model to be the artist I am today.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a facial?

    A facial is a restorative cosmetic treatment for the skin on your face. Facials can be performed by a licensed cosmetician, esthetician, dermatologist or other qualified provider. Spas,  medi-spas and other skin care centers offer facials. Most offer different types of facials that address the most pressing skin care needs such aging, dryness, sagging, pigmentation, etc.

    The national average cost for a facial is $60-$80. More complex facials, such as microdermabrasion or chemical peel, will cost more, as will services provided by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. The products used can also affect the cost of your facial; high-end creams and serums will likely result in a higher cost. For most non-medical facials, the practitioner will perform a skin assessment, determining your skin type and learning about your lifestyle, diet and skin care concerns. Then the facialist will cleanse and exfoliate the skin, extract any blackheads and clear clogged pores, give a facial massage, apply a treatment mask and then apply moisturizers. Typically facials are relaxing and restorative, leaving your skin clear and dewy.

    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.

    Which facial is best?

    The wide variety of names, methods, techniques and technologies for facials can be confusing. The best facial for you depends on your skin care needs. If you’re aging and want to address wrinkles and sun spots, you may want a chemical peel, while for acne you may want a deep pore cleansing treatment. Consulting with a licensed esthetician, cosmetologist or dermatologist will help guide your choice. Skin care professionals specialize in assessing your skin and determining which course of treatment will help you achieve your goals. Here is a basic overview of the best facials for different outcomes:

    • Reduce wrinkles: A chemical peel can help stimulate skin cell turnover, creating a fresh new layer thanks to the salicylic or glycolic acids. It’s important to work with an experienced professional when getting a chemical peel so you choose the right level for your skin type.
    • Prevent acne: Enzyme facials or LED facials help battle acne breakouts.
    • Smooth skin tone: Microdermabrasion facials are done using a small tool that polishes off your dead skin cells to reveal a fresh layer of skin underneath.
    • Relax and rejuvenate: A traditional European facial often features warm steamed towels, a facial massage, deep skin cleansing and exfoliation, extractions (as desired), face masks, and applications of serums and moisturizers to leave your skin refreshed and you feeling great.
