I cannot believe how detailed, generous, thorough and professional Mayra was. She spent an insane amount of time to have my lashes perfect. She was EXTREMELY affordable compared to other eyelash salons in San Francisco. She works out of her apartment, which is incredibly clean! She was so informative and responsive over text MSG. I realized that the previous eyelash job that I had (though very nice), was not nearly as high quality as Mayra. She used amazing lashes, that don't even feel like fake lashes to me. They are really soft and the previous job, you could see the glue! Everyone has complimented my lashes, and that they look much more natural. I love them and most of all Mayra is very down to earth. She even gives a little eyelash brush and a card with care instructions! I am so glad I found her, will be going back for sure!

I only have the highest regards for Yvonne. Since I found her in 2013, I never went to any other salon. She's very professional, kind, honest and easy to work with. Her style is modern and very updated. I love how she does the ombre and biolage. She knows exactly what looks great and it's even low maintenance. She's simply the best!

Wedding day makeup. Loved the at home experience. I was comfortable and since I had gone to the salon prior to the day of my wedding, there was nothing missing. Very pleasant experience.

Charm is an excellent hairdresser! With her expertise knowledge and skill, she has made my hair amazing, which has given me confidence that I didn't have before. For the past 13 years, I've had a disorder which causes hair loss due to uncontrollable hair pulling. My head was covered in bald and thinning patches that were extremely difficult to conceal, and I was looking for a good way to cover the spots while my hair grew out. I went to other salons prior to visiting Charm and none of them were able to help me in the way that I needed, some weren't able to work with me at all with the condition my hair was in. I went into this looking to get extensions, though with Charm's knowledge and experience we changed this idea to give me a sew-in wig. Charm purchased, designed, and installed the whole thing herself, which was extremely helpful to me since I went into this not knowing what to do or what to expect. Needless to say, the end result was fantastic. Charm did a great job selecting color, constructing the piece, and then attaching it to my own hair so that I could sleep and shower in it. She even provided helpful tips for styling and maintaining the hair's life so that I could have it as long as possible. I've had my sew-in for the past few months and I love it! It has drastically improved my quality of life and confidence in myself. My hair has also grown back in a lot since the installation. I'm excited to see the end result when my own hair grows out to an even length and can be worn naturally, and I will continue to see Charm for her excellent work!

I had an amazing experience with Maritza. Originally, I booked her to do my Winter Ball look, and it went incredible. She knows how to give you the exact look you want, or recommend something you wouldn't have originally though of. Later, I booked her for my birthday where I got so many compliments on my makeup. She even helped with hair at the end that was turning flat after going to a professional salon. My hair and makeup looked stunning that night thanks to Maritza.

    I listen to their concerns n implement what they want


    I’m doing something I’ve loved since I was a kid. I’ve always loved beauty, and have been giving people makeovers my whole life. I used to play with makeup (and had my own play makeup) when I was young, and really started experimenting with my own makeup since I was officially allowed to wear it in 6th grade. I’m lucky that my mom and my sister would always do her own makeup, and was my role model to be the artist I am today.

The product contains 42% keratin protein (the most that any competitor has is 12%). It is formaldehyde-free backed by an MSDA sheet that includes its actual ingredients. Now, Rebecca is offering this service at VE salon in Campbell. Starting at $200.00, there is no other treatment that even compares.

    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.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
