Phoebe and Vanessa did the makeup and hair for my bridesmaids and I on our wedding day. Not only were they so great and easy to work with but the makeup and hair looked BEAUTIFUL. Their pricing was extremely reasonable and their work was phenomenal. Both my trials went exactly as I had pictures and Vanessa even teamed my hair the day of when I had a different idea of what I wanted-and it turned out better than I had hoped. Both girls were easy to get ahold of, checked in with me as the day got closer and were very punctual. With 9+ girls to do hair and makeup on, they had their work cut out for them and they did it flawlessly!

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 :)

Steph is amazing! She made me look so beautiful on my wedding day. She was very easy to work with and she really listened to me and what I wanted my bridal makeup and hair to look like. The look was executed perfectly! She and her assistant were able to get me and 6 girls hair and make up done in on time and on budget. All my girls looked so beautiful too! I would highly recommend Steph for any event!

SUPER SATISFIED Sweet Sixteen mom and daughter(s)!!!! LIz truly is an artist with both hair and makeup. I communicated my daughter's wishes with Liz via text, emai, and phone conversations. She was clear and honest about what would be possible for my daughters' hair and she did not disappoint. She listened to our ideas and also shared some of her own. Liz arrived on time, was super organized with professional makeup and decorative hair supplies, and was easy to work with. After finishing my 16 year old's hair and makeup she offered to braid my younger daughter's hair and apply some makeup free of charge. So SWEET!!! We definitely recommend Brides by Liz for hair and makeup for any special event.

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!

Amanda recently did the hair styling for my wedding last weekend and I can't say enough great things about her! First off, she was very flexible, calm under pressure, and was very reliable (even working with a very sore thumb & wrist!). Her pricing was also so reasonable, it was truly a bargain for the quality work she provided. She didn't charge me a travel fee, nor an extra amount for the assistant she brought to help her finish sooner with my 4 person bridal party, nor did she charge anything extra for the bridal hairstyle relative to everyone else (instead, a very reasonable flat rate for each head of hair styled). I received so many compliments about my hair at my wedding and didn't have any problems with it falling out or the curls uncurling as the day progressed. (Even without another application of hairspray, part-way though the night, which was recommended, but of course I forgot to do.) She was so kind, friendly, reasonable, and flexible that I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a hair stylist. Not only this, but I would even recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great, reasonable hairstylist in general. She clearly knows what she's doing and is worth what she charges... and then some!

Needed to get my hair washed blow dried and trimmed, called EVERYWHERE, everybody was booked out. I called Brooks hair therapy and Keyta was able to fit me right in. She didn't rush, she took her time and knew exactly what I wanted. She educated me on hair treatment and what I should be doing to maintain healthy hair growth. I loved my experience and will defenitley be back. If you want a stylist that treats you like family and makes your hair #1 priority then this is the place to go. Thanks again!

      Doug Gordon has been my one-and-only hair stylist for over 14 years. Never once have I strayed away. Before I met Doug I used to change stylists regularly because they didn't understand the complexity of working with long, curly hair. Since day one, I have trusted Doug completely with my hair as he has always given me the most gentle, reliable, consistent service over and over again. Doug's attention to detail, patience with my "I want a new look" moments, his healing touch and warm spirit are beyond compare! ~ Jacqueline Nicolini

      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.
