Jessica did my wedding hair and make up. She is so incredibly talented with both make up and hair. She is also very personable, professional, patient, and receptive to feedback. She will travel to your location and bring her epic kit with her. Jessica is a master at eye make up which is often so difficult for make up artists to get right as different physical features are complimented by different styles.

Christina has such incredible talent for hair and makeup! She not only made me feel beautiful, but also gave me tips and suggestions for how I can do my everyday makeup. I highly recommend using her for special events, photographs, or even a night out. She's just great.

Alyssa is an outstanding make-up artist. She traveled to my house for my Senior Prom. I had my hair and make-up done by her. She got everything done within the hour. She made sure that the make-up and hair was something that I like. I had so many compliments that night, and the hair and make-up lasted all night. I'm glad I chose Alyssa to do my hair and make-up for prom, and I will for sure go back to her if I need my hair or make-up done for a special occasion. You will not regret choosing her service! :)

I hired Kelli to do my hair and makeup for my first photo shoot. She was very professional and extremely talented. I felt beautiful and my pictures came out amazing! I am an NPC fitness competitor. I have to have my makeup professionally done for each competition. Kelli is my new go-to girl, to get me stage ready! I wouldn't trust anyone else!

Katie is wonderful! From our initial conversations, through my makeup trial, onto the wedding, and even after the festivities she was responsive, professional, and a joy to work with. She was happy to listen to what I really wanted for my hair and makeup and made style changes from the trial to the final wedding day without question. My maid of honor and my fiance's and my mothers also got their makeup done and were equally thrilled with her work! Katie was able to accomplish personalized results for all of us that looked amazing in the photos, even during an evening wedding.

Susan came to cut and wash my hair . She was on time and made great contact in scheduling and as she was on her way. I am a bed ridden older woman and it is next to impossible to find a person to help with things like daily concerns. Susan was a very happy, pleasant person. She knew what had to be done and how to get it done. She had all the necessary equipment. It was nice to converse with Susan. She is a intelligent and positive personality . I will be calling Susan again. Thank God for people like Susan Loane

I recently had my hair cut by Rosses Razors. I was so happy to see his work in the mirror wow I was quite impressed with his ability to make my hair flow with my face and compliment my face shape. It was a hair cut that lasts too. I was planning on having him cut my hair once every two weeks but as it got a little longer... the better it looked. The style evolved with time like he knew how to predict how it will grow. Amazing! This man is a true artist! I highly recommended Rosses Razors to everyone! Nathan Life long customer

My haircut was good. The color was ok. I was a little disappointed with the overall blonde lift in the back of my hair. Also, I would have dispersed the vibrant color differently as it looked like I was wearing a headband.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
