Mayra did my fiancee's hair and make-up for our civil ceremony in SF City Hall. My fiancee was very pleased, as Mayra did a fantastic job with her make-up and Mayra's friend/hair stylist did a stellar job as well. My now wife is very picky and she was thrilled by the efficiency and professionalism of these two women. Additionally, they were definitely the best value compared to the other stylists we looked at. My only piece of constructive feedback, would be to schedule some buffer time as Mayra was a bit late, but buffer time is always a must as traffic can be unpredictable.

Teresa did an amazing job with my hair for my wedding, as well as those of my bridal party. She listened to what everyone wanted as far as styling requests and gave some great suggestions on what she thought would work and what wouldn’t. Not only is she an obvious pro as a hair stylist, she was prompt, friendly, and very reasonably priced. I would use and recommend her services again without hesitation!

Rose is the best! She's an amazing professional, with unmatched quality of service and efficiency! She made me look 30 years younger on my wedding day (yup, that's what everyone told me). I couldn't have had a better hair stylist and make up artist! She's truly heaven-sent. I highly recommend her, and I'm blessed to have her get me ready for my Big Day! What an absolute treat!!!!

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.

I first met Susan when my wedding planner highly recommended her as my hair stylist for my wedding in Half Moon Bay and told me I would be in capable hands. After our initial meeting, I felt at ease with her and knew I could trust her in making me look my very best on my big and special day. Susan did a fantastic job in capturing my thoughts and wishes for my hair and makeup on my wedding day. She made me feel pampered, which is what every bride hopes for. Since my wedding day, I have used her as my personal hairstylist as I continue to love her work. I highly recommend for anyone who needs a makeup and hairstylist artist for a special event to contact Susan.

I booked Alexa for hair and makeup for me and 2 other girls for my anniversary party. I had a trial, which I recommend doing if you're particular about the way you'd like to look. She did a good job applying make up and doing my hair. It was more glamorous than the natural look I was going for. On the day of my party, I asked her to tweak a couple things based on the trial, and she listened well and delivered the perfect hair and make up look! The 2 other girls liked their looks as well. I would book Alexa again in the future, and I recommend her as she's good at what she does, and she listens to what you want.

Carina did the hair for 9 bridesmaids for my wedding this past weekend. She arrived early, worked quickly, and all of the hair came out beautifully! She was even able to squeeze in an extra person at the last minute, which we didn't expect but really appreciated. I would work with her again in a second. Thank you, Carina!

Maria did such an amazing job! I had an idea of what I wanted to do at my hair and makeup trial for my wedding, but she made me look so much more polished than I had ever imagined. She's incredibly friendly and listens to what you want to do, and makes sure you are comfortable the whole time. I cannot recommend her enough!

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!

Reese helped me out with both my teenage girls. Reese met with the girls in our home. Reese came fully prepared with some ideas of what the girls would like. After our meeting the girls were sold on the idea of someone helping them out with their look. We set a date to meet in the city to SHOP!!! Needless to say they had a blast shopping and Reese was right there to help both of them. Fast forward a week the girls are taking Reese' advise to heart and are putting in into action with how they now are presenting themselves. I am very happy we found Reese and would highly recommend her services.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

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 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.
