Mayra and her team were absolutely fantastic! I hired Mayra to do hair and makeup for myself and six other bridesmaids for my sisters wedding. They finished everything in a remarkably short amount of time and did amazing work. Highly recommend!

Hazel did such a great job on my hair. I was the maid of honor for my best friends wedding and I wanted to go with an "old holly wood" look. I showed her a picture and she delivered. She came to the house and was right on time. She had everything readily available and we got to working on my hair right away. She was very funny and kept me entertained the whole time and made me feel very pretty. I loved the outcome of the hair and makeup done by Sophea and so did every one else. I would highly recommend her and will use her again in the future. I am the girl the blue dress. :)

Angelie did a wonderful job with my makeup for my wedding. She was on time, professional, flexible and all with a smile. She took my suggestions after my trial and everything was perfect for my actual wedding. She also jumped in and gave me a great updo when my other hair plans fell through just a few weeks before.

I booked Alexa for hair and makeup for me and 2 other girls for my anniversary party. I had a trial, which I recommend doing if you're particular about the way you'd like to look. She did a good job applying make up and doing my hair. It was more glamorous than the natural look I was going for. On the day of my party, I asked her to tweak a couple things based on the trial, and she listened well and delivered the perfect hair and make up look! The 2 other girls liked their looks as well. I would book Alexa again in the future, and I recommend her as she's good at what she does, and she listens to what you want.

Jelise was AMAZING! She is a sweetheart and did a great job with my makeup for a video shoot that I did with my band! I am hiring her again for our next video shoot because of how great of a makeup artist and person she is. She was punctual, nice, did a great job for my hair and makeup, and was even talkative (in a good way so there were no awkward silences)! We were happy with her work. Jelise, you are awesome!

Carina did the hair for 9 bridesmaids for my wedding this past weekend. She arrived early, worked quickly, and all of the hair came out beautifully! She was even able to squeeze in an extra person at the last minute, which we didn't expect but really appreciated. I would work with her again in a second. Thank you, Carina!

Maria did such an amazing job! I had an idea of what I wanted to do at my hair and makeup trial for my wedding, but she made me look so much more polished than I had ever imagined. She's incredibly friendly and listens to what you want to do, and makes sure you are comfortable the whole time. I cannot recommend her enough!

Jaiya did both my hair and make-up for my wedding in November 2014 and she was AMAZING. We already had booked her for make-up for me and my bridesmaids, but she also stepped in at the last minute to do my hair when an issue came up with my original appointment. It was perfect. Beyond the gorgeous hair and make-up, she was a soothing, magical presence in an otherwise crazy, stressful room of pre-wedding women. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Jackie is by far the best stylist I’ve seen and that says a lot. She has a natural talent for styling hair and always gives me exactly what I’m looking for. Her styles are flawless and normally last 3-5 days. She is the best. Highly recommend this incredible hard working lady!

Lilliana is amazing and very talented! She takes her time to care and understand the look and hairdo you're going for. Booked Lilliana for a special event, I didn't have a specific look or hairdo in mind and simply asked for her professional suggestions. Not only did she walk me through different shades of eyeshadow color, different look (dewy, matte, glow,etc), she also ensure that the look matches my dress! As for hairstyle, we went for a Greek Style Braids. (Greek goddess ) Lilliana's is so talented and creative she created this amazing hairdo with FRESH flowers from her garden. I highly recommend Lilliana for ALL KINDS OF EVENT!

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.
