I can't say how great Julie is. I interviewed 3 different people to do my hair and makeup for my wedding and ended up choosing Julie. She's been in the industry for years dealing with high end clients, photo shoots and television. She's not only professional but it felt like from the moment I did a trial run to my final wedding day that I had a close friend next to me. I would recommend her to anyone who wants high quality makeup and hair. Also, she does airbrush make up, which I was extremely skeptical of. It stayed on ALL day and evening during a hot July wedding! I couldn't be happier! Thanks Julie!

I hired Jacynda and her team for my wedding. One month before my wedding my previous hair and makeup artist fell through. I was able to book the date just a month in advance! She was also able to do a last minute hair and make up trial for me the day of my bridal shower. This was a great first impression. She was punctual and very professional. I don't know much about make up, so she made some great suggestion. I also showed them a couple of pictures of what I liked for hair and make up and they easily worked with it. The day of my wedding they arrived early which was great. They worked through my bridal party quickly, but made sure that the girls got the look they wanted. It was a hectic day and they were both very calm and light hearted. They really made us look very beautiful. I would definitely recommend Plush Artistry! Thank you so, so much!

Vanessa did such wonderful hair & makeup work for my wedding! The style she gave me held up the entire day, and even looked amazing in our guests’ cell phone pictures. We did a trial a couple weeks beforehand, and the few small tweaks we made for the big day really made all the difference between really liking my look and absolutely loving it. Vanessa was so accommodating—she found a pair of false eyelashes after the trial that were better suited for me and had a sparkly hair comb at the ready in case I was in need of one. She also gave me an extra bit of lipstick to carry with me so that I could touch it up later in the evening if needed. I would highly recommend her services!

Sara was absolutely amazing. She understood exactly what I wanted to look like for my big day and was able to make me look better than I had expected. What I loved about Sara is that she offers free hair and makeup trials which is such a money saver. She is very accommodating and will offer her opinion on what she thinks will work for you. She has a great eye for what she thinks will make you look your best on your day. I couldn't have been more happy with how my hair and makeup turned out to be. Sara is so nice, easy to talk to and a great makeup/hair artist! If you want to look breathtaking on your big day, you have to hire Sara. You will not regret it.

Natalie was the Wedding Artistry Makeup & hair for a total of 8 girls. This was for a sweet sixteen in Eastvale. She completed the job in 4:30 hours. She arrived on time, was very professional and understood our vision. All girls were happy with their hair and makeup. She went above and beyond to try to meet everyone's expectations, without sacrificing the quality of her work. Will definitely work with her again.

I can't say enough good things about Steph!! I hired her to do our hair and makeup for my wedding. We don't live in California so we didn't get to do a practice run but it didn't matter, I was thrilled with the results! I interacted with several hair and makeup professionals but from the start, Steph was the most professional and most on-top of everything. Everyone was so happy with their hair and makeup, and it lasted all night. She was able to take our ideas, offer some advice and get us the look we wanted. Hire her! She will make you feel beautiful and special!

SUPER SATISFIED Sweet Sixteen mom and daughter(s)!!!! LIz truly is an artist with both hair and makeup. I communicated my daughter's wishes with Liz via text, emai, and phone conversations. She was clear and honest about what would be possible for my daughters' hair and she did not disappoint. She listened to our ideas and also shared some of her own. Liz arrived on time, was super organized with professional makeup and decorative hair supplies, and was easy to work with. After finishing my 16 year old's hair and makeup she offered to braid my younger daughter's hair and apply some makeup free of charge. So SWEET!!! We definitely recommend Brides by Liz for hair and makeup for any special event.

Phoebe did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my 1920s themed wedding, we didn’t even do a trial run before. I was able to show her my dress and explain to her what I wanted and she delivered. I normally do my own makeup for everything since I love makeup, but I’m so glad I decided to get it done. I’m still continuing to get compliments on my look. I definitely would recommend her for your bridal needs!

WOW!!! AMAZINGLY TALENTED women!!! They did an AWESOME job doing my bridal makeup and hair and 2 other women and one 12 year old girl in my group! I thought my trial makeup and hair were awesome!! My “day of” makeup hair exceeded the high expectations they had already set for them!! They are fun, friendly, talented, punctual, and their goal is to make you the most beautiful you can look. I cannot say enough about how phenomenal their work is. All night I heard about how I looked stunning for my wedding on October 14, 2017. My hair looked breathtaking, my makeup was stunning! If you are looking for a dream team of hair and makeup for your event, do yourself a favor and hire these women!!! They are worth every penny and more! 10 out of 10 stars from me! They went above and beyond and their prices are the most reasonable out there! I will definitely hire them again for all of my special occasion hair and makeup needs.

I have worked with Julie on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. She does an amazing job enhancing a person’s natural beauty. I love working with her because she is an extremely talented artist and is always professional. It really makes a difference when your makeup artist listens to what you want and understands the look you are going for- Julie nails it every time! She has traveled the world as a makeup artist and is one of the top artists in our nation, I feel so fortunate to have such an amazing makeup artist here in San Diego! She is passionate about her artistry and really cares about perfecting each clients look! She always makes us feel so beautiful. Julie goes above and beyond. She has always does a fantastic job with my makeup over the last decade and always uses quality products. I highly recommend her for any event!

Cyn’s colleague, Sara B. did my makeup and hair as well as four of my bridesmaids. She arrived on time, listened to my wants, and delivered beautifully. Everyone looked great, and the makeup and hair held up for the full day. My lipstick stayed on all night even with the many many kisses shared between my groom and I. And my sister’s heavy, long hair stayed put in her updo. I am so pleased!

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!!

My 25th birthday was coming up and I had planned a big event with Family and Friends! Which meant I had to look absolutely perfect, (you only turn 25 once). I usually always go to MAC Cosmetics for my birthdays or for professional photography photos. I never get my artists name or info when I get my makeup done. Dont get me wrong my face was good but I guess they didnt leave a memorable impression on me. This time was different. As soon as I approched the counter Keosha greeted me with the biggest smile. I remembered thinking "OMG she is gorgeous and happy to be here, I hope shes the one doing my makeup" and I was in luck.. she was! I swear we talked the whole time I was there. She was very detailed amd explained everything she was putting on my face and why. The results was AMAZING!! Best makeup face I ever got done from M.A.C! I made sure at the end of my visit I got all her contact information. She will forever be my makeup artist! I highley recommend her to anyone who needs to enhance their beauty on a special occasion! You won't be disappointed!

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!

    Amazing work on my hair and makeup. I’m EXTREMELY picky And very particular about how other people do my hair and make up. Often times I don’t like people to do it for me and I like to just do it myself but I trust Meztli to do it just the way I ask. Give her a shot you won’t be disappointed!

    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.
