I hired Phoebe for my wedding day makeup/hair. She did such a wonderful job with everyone's makeup. She made sure each girl was happy with the work she did and would make any adjustments if they asked. Phoebe accommodated my large bridal party and worked with me so we didn't have to be up too early on my wedding day to complete everyone's hair/makeup. She was very sweet, professional and does wonderful work! My makeup looked great and stayed on all evening. I would definitely hire Phoebe again in the future!

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!

Sara dyed my hair ómbre style a few years ago. I got compliments on my hair up until I had the last few inches of light hair trimmed off. When you ask for a trim, she actually understands the concept. Rest assured the length of your hair will never be compromised. I trust Sara's taste and talent so much, she has been commissioned for my hair and make up on my upcoming wedding.

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 contracted with Sarah for hair and make-up for an NPC Bikini competition I was in on 11-7-15. She was able to match my face to my tan and did an awesome job on my hair. The hair style was so great I was actually still wearing it 3 days later with hardly any touch-ups. My make-up was flawless too. Sarah even came to me at 5:30 am to get me ready for the competition. I also found her personality and customer service to be top-notch. I would highly recommend Sarah.

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 was amazing from start to finish! She showed up on the day of my wedding and got right to work and she did a great job on mine and my bridesmaid's hair and makeup! She's really nice and professional as well and we looked great for the the pictures. She even did some last minute changes for me which we didn't have done at the trial which was excellent because I liked the way my hair turned out for my actual wedding! There is nothing I would change and I will definitely hire her for my next event if needed! Thanks Steph!

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!!!

    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.
