I hired Sabrina to do hair and make-up for my mother and I for a family photo shoot in Las Vegas. Sabrina (and her associate Marie) arrived at our hotel room a few minutes early, and were ready to start right on time. For my make-up, I had some pictures to show Sabrina - she was receptive and very excited to excute and educate me on the look I chose. My mother did not have a picture, but provided Sabrina with direction as to her likes and dislikes. Both of our final products were everything we asked for! We had an equally wonderful experience with Marie and our hair. I have clip in extensions, which Marie clipped in and styled perfectly. As part of the package I booked, Sabrina and Marie stayed through the entire photo shoot, making sure that each of us looked our best throughtout the shoot (even my sister who used a different hair and make up artist who did not stay through). Sabrina and Marie were both incredibly personable and professional, which can be a hard combination to find, and I truly appreciated getting to know them throughout the 5 hours we spent together! I will be using Sabrina again next time I am in Las Vegas!

I cannot say enough good things about Lindsey. My hair for my wedding was better than I could have ever imagined, and she handled both my hair and the hair of EIGHT bridesmaids all on her own. She works quickly, and very skillfully. Everyone looked amazing, and she accommodated all manner of styles. She really worked with me after the hair trial to fine-tune the look I was going for, and I could not have been happier with the end result. Not only that, but her prices are the best I've seen, especially considering the quality of her work. Her style is natural, yet very sophisticated. Plus, she's just a great person to have by your side as you are getting ready for something so momentous. Hire her! You will be so glad you did.

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!!!

I had a destination wedding and Samantha made everything possible to accommodate my schedule. She listened to my requests for my make up and I was very pleased with the results. I have very long curly hair and Samantha knew who to get the hair style I wanted. Samatha was very sweet and professional. She also did the make up for my matron of honor and she was also very satisfied . I would absolutely recommend her to my friends and family! Thank you Samantha for helping me achieve the look I wanted on my special day!

I needed a make up artist and hair stylist last December 23, 2016 for a family photo shoot and found Careli. I'm glad I did, she's great! I love my hair and makeup and it came out really nice on the photos. She took her time and listened to what I wanted. Careli is a new make up artist and definitely will be successful in the industry. She's also responsive on my text and emails so communication was not a problem. The only negative comment I have was that she was half an hour late to my appointment. Apparently, she could not find the La Quinta Resort & Club which is a big surprise as she is from the area. I would have given her a 5-star if she was on time. Anyhow, will definitely hire her again if I'm in the PS area.

I''ve been trusting my hair and makeup needs to the ladies who work here for a few months now and they do an excellent job. I don't feel the need to have just one hair stylist anymore because everyone who works here is amazing and does exactly what i am looking for! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new stylist or someone who is just in town for the weekend. You wont be disappointed.

Laura (aka Lola) is the most professional stylist I know. She will work with you on the look that works best for you and the reality of what your hair will actually do. She is extremely honest and upfront. She gives you the attention and time needed for consultation and to create your look. She keeps herself trained with the most current up-to-date trends to be able to offer unique creative cuts and colors. Lola created a natural looking custom balayage with foil application and root touch up for me the last time she did my hair and it turned out exactly as I wanted. If you want to feel beautiful with a new look or even a modification on your existing look, you will not be disappointed with Lola.

Mireya is a true professional! We were offered last minute red carpet VIP tickets to last nights ESPYS and found Mireya on Thumbtack (first time user) Not only did she respond right away, she came to our home on less than a days notice. Her work is outstanding. She's fast yet maticulous - and does AMAZING work. I was in the fashion industry for several years and use to hire makeup /hair artists for our major fashion magazines photo shoots..she would have made the grade! You won't be dissapointed! I'd give her more stars if available!

I usually dont write reviews but Veronica literally saved my hair! about two years ago I asked my hairstylist (i wont put his name on blast) to lighten my hair. All i wanted was choolate brown ( i was a dark brown already). He said he had to beach it and then dye it...i was ok with it...he ended up burning my head! I got blisters all over ( i still have neck scars from the blisters, they're sooooo ugly). It was like movie....when he washed my hair (after i was almost crying because of the burning) my haor started to fall out!!!!! I was left with verrrry thin,brittle, and crisppy hair. I was so embarssed. I was left with no choice but to find aaother hair stylist. I was referred to Veronica by a friend. As you can imagine i was skeptical and hesitant about letting someone touch my hair. But i reached out to her anyway and im glad i did. She condotioned my hair and nursed it back to health and didnt charge me an arm and a leg to do it! She got the ugly color out of it and taught me how to style it without having to use any straightners or curling irons. My hair is thick and healthy now. She is really sweet, patient, and afforable (and she even makes house visits 🙌). Now i use her for everything! Her and her team are doing the hair and make up (i love he way she does my makeup... she makes me look like a persian goddess and im mexican lol) my wedding and i couldnt be happier! I hate to share her (my secret beauty weapon) with everyone. But i know how terrible it feels not to feel like yourself because someone burnt your hair, cut too much, or charged too much. If your looking for a miracle at a descent price, call her! Thank you for all you've done for my haor Veronica. I hope this review was helpful guys.

I had a wedding last week in San Diego, CA. Jamie drove down from LA area early morning and was very accommodating to ALL of my 8 bridesmaids, mom and aunts! She was quick in time and had them all ready in time for the wedding! She started on my hair first and made sure to end with me last to make sure my hair was perfect. She knew exactly how to time everything. Not only was she punctual in time, the quality of her hairstyles were ON POINT. All of my girl’s hair (including mine, of course) stayed perfect till the end of the wedding! Even though it lasted all day, Jamie kept a close eye on all of us to ensure if we needed any touch-ups (not like we did but she was very considerate!) I would refer Jamie as a professional wedding hairstylist. She knew exactly what she was doing which made my day a lot easier to plan!

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.
