Plush did my bridal hair and makeup and my 13 year old daughters for my wedding on May 22, 2017. The ladies were very professional and did an excellent job. All they had to do was glance at the pictures we had of what we wanted and they matched it perfectly. Definitely recommend!

Unprofessional. Unreliable. Rude. Disappointing to have scheduled appointment on site showing the date and time being available. After requesting confirmation from hairdresser had to wait 2 to 3 days to finally hear back saying that she is in San Diego unable to make the appointment. Her site says she's located in Carlsbad...Don't waste your time with these sites, the last "make up artist" I hired, showed up 1 hour late and seemed hung over:( Better to simply go to a professional salon. You never know whose going to show up at your door step!

I met with Vanessa prior to her styling my hair for my wedding, which was a REALLY good idea because then I could see from the pictures what I liked and didn't like. I ended up changing my style quite a bit but it was no problem for her at all. She brought an assistant with her because there were 10 of us and her assistant was fabulous as well. Everyone loved their hairstyle and we felt like beauty queens for the day. Thank you, hon!

Working with Jacqueline was a delight from beginning to end. She was on time and ready to work and didn't let the chaos and stress surrounding her, affect her composure or smile. She was a breath of fresh air. The makeup was beautiful, my husband loved it! The eyelash inserts last a really long time and she also leaves you with the shade of lipstick she uses for re-application during the event which really came in handy! Overall, I am extremely happy with her services, products and personality. Thanks for everything Jacqueline!

I don't even know where to begin, if I could give Sarah 100+ stars I would! She was amazing and so professional. She came to my rescue three weeks before my wedding after the girl I hired totally put me on the back burner. Sarah was there for me and made me her number one priority. Not only did she come to my rescue, she also accommodated my party of 10, yes 10. She made sure she had two other makeup/stylists to get the job done. They were all equally as amazing! She made me her number one priority, came to my house for a free makeup/hair trial that was absolutely gorgeous. She kept in contact, gave me options and was very organized prior to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, 8/20/2016, she was early, she and the other girls took such good care of my wedding party. The stylists fit right in, personable and had a great time while doing a great job. Everyone was so beautiful, I felt glamorous on my wedding day. She made everything perfect! Not only is Sarah an amazing makeup artist and stylist, she has a heart of gold and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to feel/look amazing on their wedding day!

Natalie did an AMAZING job on my hair and makeup for the wedding. I have never felt more beautiful! She is also very friendly and is a great conversationalist. We had a lot of fun together. Her style is really tasteful and brings out your natural beauty. I normally don't wear makeup and she really made me feel comfortable with what she did. Also, I danced all day/night and even at the end of the party I still looked picture-ready. Thanks Natalie!!!

My experience with Lizbeth was excellent. She did an excellent job on my make up for my wedding. She set me up with a hairstylist that also did an amazing job on my hair for my wedding. I am very pleased with how it all turned out. They were very punctual and professional. Make sure you have cash on hand. She accepts cash only and that was something that I did not find out until the night before the wedding which through a wrench in my plans with needing to run a bank errand amongst my many wedding things to do in the day of. Thankfully one of my bridesmaids had some cash to lend me, however I was hoping I wouldn't need to throw anything on anyone else. It all eventually got squared away and Lizbeth was gracious with me. For any future events I'd definitely hire her again. Thank you Lizbeth for helping me feel like a queen on my special day.

I procrastinated with getting maternity photos taken, especially since I was not feeling attractive...but as my due date fast approached, I feared I would regret not taking photos. I scrambled not only to find a photographer, but also a dress, and almost forgot about having my make up done! Thuy from Fresh Face Era was so quick to respond and tend to my needs! I've seen Thuy's work through wedding photographers and instagram and was so happy that she was able to help me on short notice. She has a great eye for beauty and used her expertise to give me the natural make up look appropriate for a soon to be mom :). (but if I had a wedding or ball to go to, I would be more than happy for her to glam me up! I've seen her work and it's definitely glamorous!) The make up turned out beautifully on the photos. Thank you so much Thuy from Fresh Face Era for making me feel beautiful during times when a pregnant woman needed it =p.

Thank god I found Veronica! I have been screwed over so many times and paid way too much for subpar hairstyles. I've never been more confident in anyone with my hair more than Veronica. She is an amazing hairstylist! Literally the BEST! She really listens to what I want and always make it happen. She addresses all my concerns and makes sure that I am comfortable and that I LOVE my hair before she lets me go home. I am so happy to have her as my hairstylist as she creates the best hair styles to match my face and she gives the best beauty advice. She is patient and will do everything to make you happy and satisfied with your look! Good job Veronica! Very impressive. Photos will be posted!

I was super happy how the makeup and hair turned out on my wedding day! She tailored it to fit our comfort level since I like a simpler makeup style. Months leading up to the wedding day she would ask for possible hair styles my bridesmaids would like and gave examples of what she could do. Her organization and attention to detail was a relief among all the wedding planning stress. Kim and crew were very professional and easy to talk to when asking for slight changes on either hair or makeup on the day of. My MIL didn't want heat applied to her hair but she wanted a curly do, and Kim and crew were able to complete a beautiful look with the given limitations of no curling iron. It turned out beautiful and made my MIL excited with her finished look. With Kim's great personality and sense of humor, my bridesmaids and I were at ease on the big day while had a blast getting ready. Kim will definitely be my go-to make up artist and hair stylist for future photo shoots! Thank you for the beautiful makeup and hair style for my big day!!

Blue was amazing! We first met when he came to do my makeup for my bridal shower. And after that it was history! Haha I was hooked! I knew he was extremely talented about 5 minutes into us meeting. I instantly knew he would be perfect to do my makeup for my bachelorette and wedding. So 2 months later he was on a flight to Cabo for my wedding! Best decision ever! He was awesome and totally rocked it. He did my makeup as well as 6 of my bridesmaids, my aunt and mother in law. I loved everyone's look. He made my special day becoming a bride so incredible! He is my go to from here on out!

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.

I had my hair cut and had balayage highlights done by Dee, and I LOVE my results. I was looking for a subtle change but wanted something natural, and Dee simply nailed it. Another thing that impressed me and showed Dee’s knowledge was how she chose to dry my wavy/curly hair before cutting it to ensure she didn’t cut off more than I wanted. I appreciate her talent and the time she took to make sure I was comfortable and received the look I was going for.

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.
