Lindsey is one of the best hair stylists that I've ever worked with. I hired Lindsey to style my hair before a large conference I was hosting. She traveled to my hotel every morning. She was extremely prompt and very fun to work with. Not only did my hair look absolutely stunning, I received many compliments online and in person. I am so grateful that she helped me look my best when I needed it. I would work with her every day if I could. I highly recommend her services. She is talented, professional, flexible and extremely friendly! Lindsey, thank you. I can't wait to see you again in the Spring!

Rebecca helped us with hair and makeup for the wedding of my son. Although she had some car problems, she was able to get us ready in time for family picture taking. Knowing that the brides family and friends were having hair and makeup done also and that professional pictures were being taken, Rebecca helped us to feel and look our ultimate best for the occasion. We can't thank her enough.

I hired Vanessa to help me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day and she is just amazing. I didn't even have to show her pictures and the hair styles she made were just perfect. I will definitely keep her contact and recommend to anyone looking for free lance hair stylist for their big day. All my girls love their hair and i got many compliments on my hair from my wedding. Thank you Vanessa, you saved my big day!

Priscylla is an incredible makeup artist and hair stylist extending across all age, skin, and hair types. I had myself, my mother, mother inlaw, 3 bridesmaids, and aunt done by priscylla on my wedding day and I was more than pleased. My sister is fair skinned, red headed, and my other two bridesmaids had dark hair and varying skin tones. Everyone looked incredible. Thank you for making us look so fantastic on our wedding day Priscylla! P.S. Priscylla was incredibly responsive and ALWAYS treated me kindly. I highly recommend her!

Everything about Patty is amazing. She did my hair and makeup in a parking lot for my engagement pictures with less than a hour to do it. Not only did she finished before the hour but she super amazing. I already hired and paid for my wedding day make up but if my bridesmaids don't use her I may hire her to hang out at my wedding to make sure I look prefect all day because I liked her so much.

If you are looking for a one-stop shop for your wedding, look no further. My experience with LadyMarry was unforgettable and I cannot thank them enough, I highly recommend them. Had my pre-wedding photos & wedding day (big day bundle) done by them and it was beautiful. I did my research and compared countless wedding services around Los Angeles and LadyMarry came out on top. Not only was the price ultra-competitive, but also the quality is next to none. I am so glad I choose LadyMarry for my pre-wedding photos and wedding day DJ, coordination, officiant, photo, video, decor and makeup.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Tay came to me at the last minute and did a phenomenal job on my hair and makeup. I was so stressed out, I had someone else and they canceled on me. I got her info from a mutual friend and I’m glad I did. She is so caring and humble, I felt like I had known her all my life. She is very knowledgeable and precise. She talked me through everything step by step. She is an amazing person and artist. I will be booking her for my next event for sure.

Dionah, is the true definition of a skilled hair stylist with the ability to work with diverse clientele. I have naturally, unprocessed/non relaxed, African American hair. She colors, cuts, blowouts and styles my hair straight. She uses state of the art products that bring moisture, shine and bounce to my hair. I do not have a before photo but this photo shows how I feel and look after. - E

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.
