Amazing!! Very professional, knowledgeable, time efficient, and true artists in their trade! I highly recommend Plush to anyone looking for an on-site make-up artist or hair stylist. With their on-site services they helped take the stress out of extra travel in a city I'm not familiar with for my destination elopement. I felt like a VIP on my special day with them showing up with all of the equipment needed, from the chair to bobby pins, to turn my hotel room into a VIP dressing room! Communication with them for planning was professional and up to date using text and email. My experience with Plush was outstanding!

We had a tall order for our hair stylist with 1 bride, 8 bridesmaids, 2 moms and 2 flower girls. But Vanessa and her assistant handled everything perfectly. Everyone loved their hair and felt so amazing the day of our wedding. In order to get everyone done for pictures before the event, we had to start super early and Vanessa delivered and even fit in another girl who was a guest at our wedding who loved everyone's hair so much she wanted her own done for our wedding. Thank you for making all of us feel beautiful for my wedding. Such an amazing experience!

Loooved Sarah and her work!! I got my hair and makeup done by Sarah on my wedding day. Turned out exactly how I wanted it, if not better!!! She really listen to what I wanted and the style I was trying to achive. Not only did she do my hair/makeup but she did my bridal party as well. Everyone loved her and how their hair and makeup turned out! She and her assistant arrived on time and knew exactly what they were doing in terms of managing time and getting everyone ready. Her prices are also REALLY reasonable and affordable, wich is amazing and hard to find for the type of work she does! I'm so happy I picked Sarah for my wedding day, my pictures came out amazing thanks to her!!! I will definitely be hiring her for future events when needing to do hair/makeup 🤗☺ Thank you Sarah!!! ❤

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!

It was an important day and I woke up a hot mess . I really needed a miracle or help ! Thank goodness V came to the rescue. I was never really good at styling my hair so I needed all the help I could get. I want an up-do with some waves but the up-do to be a little tossled to give me some volume because I have very fine and thin hairs. V exceeded my expectations and always made sure that I was enjoying myself as she styled my hair. She was very professional but still very laid-back and made sure I loved my look before I left. Needless to say, no one recognized me at the event because my hair was on point ! Thanks V I will be coming back when I have a hair emergency or some event I need to look fabulous for .

Cole is an amazing and talented artist and I was blessed to have her do my hair and make up for my wedding. She's very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. I have acne scars and blotchy skin and on my wedding day I felt so beautiful she knew what features to bring out and what to hide. Lets be honest not everyone has flawless skin but I was glowing for sure on my special day. I can't thank her enough for the wonderful job she did! I highly recommend Cole for any special occasion you won't be dissappointed! I love her warm and welcoming personality as well she makes you feel like you've known each other for years!

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!!

Needed to get my hair washed blow dried and trimmed, called EVERYWHERE, everybody was booked out. I called Brooks hair therapy and Keyta was able to fit me right in. She didn't rush, she took her time and knew exactly what I wanted. She educated me on hair treatment and what I should be doing to maintain healthy hair growth. I loved my experience and will defenitley be back. If you want a stylist that treats you like family and makes your hair #1 priority then this is the place to go. Thanks again!

Nadia Rose/Bridal Beauty by Nadia Rose was superb. Nadia is the only person that has ever been able to get my curls to hold! She's like a magician (or an angel seems more accurate lol) Nadia is such a talented hair stylist. I give her five plus ✨ stars, and I highly recommend her to anyone in search of a hairstylist. I look forward to hopefully working with her again in the future for my wedding anniversary when we renew our vows. Nadia is a great listener, punctual, hard working, professional, responsive, and will exceed all of your expectations! Thanks for making me look beautiful on my big day Nadia! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    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.

    Brittany has done my hair and makeup on several occasions as it has always been absolutely pristine. She is talented, fun, and most importantly listens to you and what YOU want. She walks you through the steps and makes you feel completely at ease. I am not someone who lets just anyone do my hair and makeup so trust me when I tell you that Brittany is spectacular!! I am even having her doing my hair and makeup for the most important occasion of all - my Wedding! I wouldn't trust anyone else with making me feel my best on my big day. Brittany is amazing and I feel so grateful to have her be my personal beautician!

    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.

    What is a seamless extension?

    A seamless hair extension is a type of clip-on hair extension. The extension hair is called the weft. Near the top of the weft, a metal clip mounted to the weft on a silicone base is used to attach the extension to your natural hair. In a traditional clip-on extension, the base that attaches the metal clip to the weft is fabric.

    People may prefer seamless extensions due to their lower profile; the silicone can be up to 50 percent thinner than the fabric, making the extension appear more natural — and, therefore, seamless. Seamless extensions usually can be washed (although you shouldn’t keep them submerged for more than 20 seconds) and heat-styled on lower heat settings. You can gently brush seamless hair extensions as well as have them dyed a darker color by a trained professional.

    How much should you tip a hairstylist?

    A hairstylist can provide you with a cut, color or highlights, or style your hair for an event. The national average cost for a hairstylist is $70-$110, but prices can vary greatly depending on the service you receive, where you live, and the salon’s or hairdresser’s reputation. A good rule of thumb is to tip your hairstylist 20 percent of your total bill. In smaller towns, 15 percent may be the norm, but in larger cities 20 percent is generally the baseline. If you frequent a salon where the shampooer, colorist, and hair cutter are all different people, you can divide that 20 percent among those service providers in proportion to the skill level and time required to do their job. Many hairstylists rent a chair from the salon and must pay a monthly rent to the salon owner.

    How much do hair extensions cost?

    Hair extensions are synthetic or real human hair integrations that add volume and length to your hair. Hairstylists are trained in different techniques to attach extensions to your hair. The cost of extensions can vary greatly depending on the technique used to apply the hair, as well as the type of hair you select. Synthetic hair is typically the least expensive, human hair is next on the pricing scale, remy hair is next, and what is called “virgin” human hair is generally the most sought-after and most expensive. Remy hair signifies that all the cuticles are intact and running in the same direction, making for smoother hair extensions in the long term. Hair is deemed virgin when all the hair is from one donor and has never undergone any chemical processing. Hair prices will vary from company to company; here are some examples of hair from online retailers.

    • Virgin strands (25 strands weighing approximately 1 gram each) for hot fusion application: $44 per bundle.
    • Virgin hair weave (approximately 4 ounces per package): $149 each.

    Here are some sample application costs from hairstylists.

    • Full sew-in: $175-$200 or more.
    • Partial sew-in: $125 or more.
    • Micro-link weft extensions: $300 or more.
    • Full-bonded extensions: $75 or more.
