Plush did my bridal hair and makeup and my 13 year old daughters for my wedding on May 22, 2017. The ladies were very professional and did an excellent job. All they had to do was glance at the pictures we had of what we wanted and they matched it perfectly. Definitely recommend!

Jacqueline did my bridal airbrush makeup and hair. She did an amazing job! She came to my home which was comfortable and convenient since I had a lot of things to do that day. Her price is very fair. She applied airbrush and worked hard on all the details of my face. My face ended up looking flawless and Jacqueline spent the extra moments to make sure everything looked perfect. After my makeup, Jacqueline listened to some ideas I had for my hair. She did exactly what I had envisioned and my hair looked great! I got so many compliments on my makeup on my wedding day and I was so satisfied. I will definitely be calling Jacqueline again in the future. I would recommend her to anyone.

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!

Ro did my makeup for my friend's wedding in Temecula and I was blown away! First off, let me say that I am Indian and I have dark circles/raccoon eyes. I seriously could not believe how well she covered them and did overall on my face. I was very happy with the outcome. I was really worried about it since they are so hard to cover (not a lot of makeup artists can cover the middle eastern raccoon eyes). She was able to easily. She did my makeup so well and has a great personality that made me feel good. I was really happy with my makeup...she literally got me teary eyed with joy. It's definitely something I'm sensitive about. I also could not believe all of the stuff she had in her kit too. she had a wide range of products that you would not believe! Nice good quality makeup and products I always wanted to try. We were all so happy with her work. I highly suggest hiring her for your event. She also loves what she does and it really shows. Thank you Ro!

These two girls are extremely talented. When I came to Kaylee Bryant I challenged her to fix the mistake of dying my hip length, curly, thick hair back to a lighter brown. Wow!!! I can confidently say I have the exact color I wanted. She colored it and highlighted without it turning back to red. Not only did she accomplish the color I wanted, she trimmed and styled my hair all with in a reasonable time. I have had several follow up appointments and I have always been satisfied. Recently, I had my hair styled in an updo by Kaylee and my makeup by Lizbeth for a wedding that I was in. They showed up early and were dressed very professionally. They were beyond prepared with makeup and different kinds of products. I was shocked at the talent the girls had. I had seen pictures but they honestly don't give them justice. Their work cannot be duplicated. I felt transformed and received so many compliments that night. I didn't want anything over the top and the girls did just that. I was hesitant to have my long hair in an updo but it turned out gorgeous. The hair around my face match the elegant of the master piece in the back. I can't for get to mention that my hair stayed in all night! Thank you ladies!!!!

I recently hired Alice's Secret Salon for my hair and makeup for my wedding. I was in a situation where the original salon I had hired had done a very poor job at my trial and then raised their prices. I found Alice's Salon on Thumbtack just a few weeks before my wedding. Alice was very responsive and helpful with any questions that I had about the services and this put my mind at ease being that it was so close to my wedding date. My makeup turned out absolutely excellent! I love the airbrush makeup. It was so light weight and really felt like I didn't have anything on. Alice's team went above and beyond to make sure that I was 100% happy with my hair and makeup. Overall I would absolutely recommend Alice's Salon to anyone getting married or needing makeup or hair for an event. Alice went above and beyond in customers service and really cares about making sure her clients are happy with their services. Alice really came to the rescue when I needed hair and makeup for my wedding and I am so happy I found her for my wedding. I will definitely go to her salon for any future hair and makeup needs! Thanks you Alice.

She's a total pro.... I have been with her for 3 years. She has done many event's like Weddings, Photo Shoots, and Parties. I have never been one to go get my make up done but she makes me feel very comfortable and secure. She listens to my request and always knows exactly what my vision or idea is. All the material is high quality and she takes her time she is so meticulous. I adore her as a Makeup Artist and now that I know her for 3 years I adore her as a person. I will never go with anyone else.

Chandra Wood was the makeup artist for my wedding on June 19th and she did makeup for my bridal party at the Hilton Harbor Island. Chandra began promptly at 8:30am, as promised. I watched Chandra as she set up for the day and that, in itself, was amazing. She choice the perfect location to set-up her makeup chair - facing the beautiful water of the bay! Every lady that sat in her chair was able to see the flowing water, sailboats and the bright sun as they got their makeup done. PERFECTION! She had everything laid out neatly and chose the perfect colors according to everyone's taste. A few things impressed most about Chandra: She smiled ALL day! You can tell she has a passion for her work by the sheer joy that she exudes as she performs her art. Also, she listened to everyone and their needs/concerns and did what she knew they'd love. Chandra went above and beyond by taking on additional appointments. Once everyone saw her work, they HAD to get in her chair! She was flexible, cheerful and just a JOY to have around. There's nothing more we could've asked for. Chandra's work is amazing and she has a personality to match! Thank you for everything!

Blue was amazing! We first met when he came to do my makeup for my bridal shower. And after that it was history! Haha I was hooked! I knew he was extremely talented about 5 minutes into us meeting. I instantly knew he would be perfect to do my makeup for my bachelorette and wedding. So 2 months later he was on a flight to Cabo for my wedding! Best decision ever! He was awesome and totally rocked it. He did my makeup as well as 6 of my bridesmaids, my aunt and mother in law. I loved everyone's look. He made my special day becoming a bride so incredible! He is my go to from here on out!

Murien did my hair and makeup for my wedding and I was extremely happy with my look! I didn't have any ideas for the type of style I wanted but Murien was still able to give me a classy and polished look. I felt beautiful on my wedding day and am happy with my wedding photos as well. She came on time and went beyond what was expected of her. I can tell that she is passionate about hair and makeup. She recently did hair and makeup for another wedding that I was a bridesmaid for. She made sure the whole bridal party looked good but had the bride look absolutely stunning! I'd recommend Murien to anyone who wants to look and feel beautiful for a special event. You'll love her :)

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How long does a henna tattoo stay on?

Typically a henna tattoo stays on anywhere from one to three weeks. Henna artists work with henna paste, also called mehndi, which dyes the skin for a short period of time. An important part of Indian culture, the use of henna has become increasingly popular in the United States, with henna artists providing henna tattoos for weddings, as event entertainment and for other special events. Henna artists typically apply their designs to the palms and backs of the hands, the wrists, up to the elbows, and from the feet up to the knees. To preserve the rich color of your henna tattoo and help it set, avoid water as much as possible within the first 24 hours of application. The color will be richest during the first week. Brides may want to have their henna tattoos applied one or two days before the wedding for optimal results.

How much do wedding makeup artists cost?

A wedding means love, celebration and tons of wedding photos. Professional wedding makeup artists have you looking your best on your big day and forever after in your wedding photos. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, although this price can increase based on your location, the extent of the makeup services and the reputation of the makeup artist. Most wedding makeup artists offer discounts to brides who book group services for their maids, mothers and flower girls at the same time. Wedding makeup artists who also do wedding hair usually offer package rates for hair and makeup combos. Here are some examples of average wedding makeup pricing:

  • Bridal makeup: $85-$125. Pricing often includes full face, eyes, lips, brows and false eyelashes. Airbrush makeup may be an additional $20 or more.
  • Bridal hair and makeup: $150-$200.
  • Bridesmaid and bridal party makeup: $50-$100 per person.
  • Bridesmaid hair and makeup: $100-$150.
  • Flower girl makeup: $25-$35.
  • Trial sessions: $60-$120, depending on the makeup artist. Some charge their full rate and others charge a partial rate for trial makeup services.
  • Hourly rates to stay on and keep makeup touched up throughout reception: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Travel fees: 50 cents to $1 per additional mile beyond a set radius — such as 50 miles.

Do I need a makeup artist for my wedding?

There are no rules around your wedding day, and that means it’s your choice whether to have a wedding makeup artist. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding makeup artist, consider the pros and cons. Some women decide against a wedding makeup artist to save money. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, which is an expense some women prefer to do without. Other women just don’t love wearing makeup. Some brides have friends or family members who are talented makeup artists willing to provide their services. If you choose not to have a wedding makeup artist, be sure to do at least two trial runs of your makeup look well before the wedding day to avoid any morning-of panic.

On the other hand, a wedding makeup artist can make the bride feel pampered and confident, giving her a flawless, fabulous look for the ceremony and reception and in wedding photos. For brides who are uncomfortable with heavy makeup, many wedding makeup artists usually excel at the natural look. Many brides consider wedding makeup part of the ritual and tradition of the ceremony, a shared experience with the entire bridal party. Ultimately your choice of whether to hire a wedding makeup artist should be based on what will make you feel most confident and happy.

How do you choose the right makeup artist for your wedding?

A wedding makeup artist can ensure a flawless look on your big day. Finding the perfect person isn’t all about price, though. Here are tips for choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding:

  • Research before reaching out. Wedding makeup artists should have an online presence with portfolios of their work. Find someone with an aesthetic you love.
  • Read reviews. You want a wedding makeup artist who’ll be on time, do beautiful work, and add a positive vibe to your day. Pay attention if previous clients report bad experiences with a makeup artist.
  • Consider skin tones. If your bridal party has a range of skin tones, make sure your wedding makeup artist and assistants are experienced and talented working with everyone.
  • Is your top pick available on your date? If so, put down a deposit to secure their services.
  • Confirm rates and payment. Clearly discuss prices and payment plans, and sign a detailed contract so there are no surprises on your wedding day.

What is the meaning behind henna tattoos?

Henna tattoos, as they are called in the United States, have a long tradition in Indian, African and Middle Eastern cultures. For centuries, the leaves of dried henna plants have been ground into a fine paste to be used as a temporary and nontoxic skin dye. This form of body decoration has been used in celebrations, weddings and ceremonial rites of passage in many cultures. Often in Hindu weddings, henna artists decorate the hands and feet of the bride (and at times the groom) with intricate designs. In some Muslim traditions, henna artists paint women with henna designs as they are in their final stages of pregnancy. In the United States, popular culture has adopted this beautiful body art and henna artists provide brides (and sometimes grooms) with temporary henna tattoos. Henna artists are also a popular choice for entertainment at corporate events, birthday parties, bachelorette parties and festivals. Henna artists may charge anywhere from $10 to $300 per hour.
