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!

Phoebe and Vanessa were great! They arrived on time and did makeup and hair exactly how everyone wanted. Everyone was just so beautiful! We all usually wear more natural style of makeup. So Phoebe did just that but we looked naturally "glam-ed up"! I couldn't have asked for better!!! Thank you so much!!!

Christine was a gem and took care of glamming me up for our wedding engagement photo session! I RARELY wear make-up so I let her take the lead as far as suggestions with only a few notes from me and I really appreciated that she checked in with me along the way throughout the session to arrive at a finished product that I was pleased with and looked great in our engagement shots. She also helped me locate a hair stylist for my wedding which I ended up booking so that was great :)

Noelani's help with all the bridesmaid makeup and hair at the hotel Humphies. When they did my make-up and hair I believe it took about less then 30mins. Noelani's was very professional and very knowledgeable about their makeup and hair. Noelani's did beyond what I expected. Noelani's made all the girls look so beautiful! I would refer everyone and people I dont know to Noelani's that's looking for a makeup artist or a hair stylist. Thank you soo MUCH!

Phoebe provided excellent service to my mother in law and myself. She did our hair and makeup for a wedding we were attending in Carlsbad. She was kind enough to come to the hotel we were staying at, at a reasonable fee. She addressed some makeup allergy concerns that I had and made sure to avoid them at all cost. Because of her gorgeous work, everyone at the wedding complimented us on how gorgeous we were. Thank you Phoebe!! We definitely know who we are calling when we having weddings to attend to in SoCal.

10 Stars!!! Michelle is the best in the biz! In addition to her positive, fun and calming personality, Michelle is a an extremely talented and experienced makeup artist/styling professional. Personally, Michelle has done my makeup/hair on a couple occasions for weddings and for a fashion shoot. I was thrilled with the results. I still looked like me, but a more polished, glamorous version of myself. She took the time to really understand what I was looking to achieve and managed my expectations perfectly. Her professionalism and experience came through and allowed me to really relax and enjoy the process, all while having so much fun! In addition, I'm also a wedding planner and have partnered with Michelle on a couple of weddings. I've seen her work under some more intense situations and she always rises to the occasion and does so with a calming and positive attitude - AND that is just what is needed in those exciting but sometimes more high intensity moments before the ceremony. A true professional - she is on time, keeps everyone on schedule, has such a warm positive attitude (you will love her!!!) and her makeup techniques are top notch. She has great eye for knowing how to best apply makeup on each individual so that they look their very best. Her makeup also has outstanding lasting power - you will keep looking fabulous throughout the day into the evening! If you are looking for a makeup artist/stylist that will make you look and feel your best - Hire Michelle!!!

Murien is a talented make up and hair artist. Not only is she creative, talented, professional and efficient but also has the gift of being a master with ALL hair types. My daughter is of an Italian, Mexican, Carib Indian, Native American and African heritage. She has our family trademark of super long, thick beautiful curly hair and if not properly cared for can easily look like a lions mane. We've tried several hair stylists in San Diego and struck absolute gold when we found Murien. Not only does my daughter LOVE her results but she refuses to let any other stylist touch her hair. Why? Murien understands as a mother herself the plight of dealing with "tender-headed" children and what a delicate situation that can be. Murien demonstrates the utmost patience and works quickly to transform my little 10 yr old lion cub into a beautiful princess. I'm most impressed that my daughter has not ever shed a single tear in Murien's chair. What's more is that she does my hair too which is a much different texture- always with the same stunning results. I recommend Murien's services wholeheartedly to all of my friends and co workers knowing that they're going to LOVE the results. In fact, I was fortunate enough to book Murien for my wedding - she made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world and I will forever be eternally grateful for the day we first met this amazingly talented young woman. From makeup to hair- there is NOTHING this woman can't do. Thank you Ms. Mur!!!!

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.

Need Hair Coloring Expert to Fix Damage

La Mesa, CA

  • Details
    I had been in the process of going blonde and had 2 rounds of highlights done. on my 3rd time adding more highlights the girl who did my hair messed up big time!!she turned my 8 months of regrowth platinum blonde(which I never wanted to go that light) and the rest Orange. I couldn't fix it since it was scattered in my other highlights I had and to hard to pick out to fix without over processing my other hair. so I did a protein filler and dyed it light brown. The color is a mix as you could guess. Its been about 2 months how long do you think I have to wait to bleach again, or is it a bad idea to do it at all. I have long hair and already cut over 3 inches off due to the damage
