Sana and her team (Shanelle and Marina) provided makeup and hair services over 2 days for my wedding weekend for 15-20 women (bridal party and family members) each day including my own. Sana was extremely organized and responsive from the first time we connected through Thumbtack. She gave me an excellent quote and was able to accommodate hair and makeup for such a large group. Initially, I had scoped out a different hair and makeup artist for myself before I had contacted Sana but after doing a trial with her, I was sold on her. She is so talented! She stayed in touch with me closer to the date and worked out a schedule with me to make sure we could get everyone ready on time. Her and her team did a fantastic job over the wedding weekend! Not only did they work diligently and quickly for hours to make sure everyone looked beautiful, they were super fun to work with and patient in understanding the look each individual was looking for and making adjustments as needed. Sana set up time aside to do my hair and makeup for my pre wedding day event and my makeup for my wedding day. Both days she gave me the looks I wanted and the airbrush makeup was flawless – it lasted all evening. The pictures of my makeup look amazing and already I’ve had people asking me who did my makeup for me. Thank you Sana and team for all your hard work and for making me, my friends and the women in my family look and feel amazing!

Let me start by saying I loved my makeup for my wedding day! I felt beautiful and the makeup stayed perfect through the wedding, reception and drinks in the evening. Jamie is very professional and detailed with her work. I appreciated our time during the trial to get things mapped out so there were no surprises on the wedding day. I would whole-heartedly recommend Jamie for any event. My only issue came with time management. I take some responsibility for this, as I should have asked Jamie to come earlier to allow for traffic, setup, changing venues, set up again and buffer time. This was my first time arranging hair and makeup for myself and multiple other people. I relied on the professionals to recommend how long it should take and when to begin. In the end, we were running late and I had to tell my aunt that we did not have time for her to get her makeup done. I refused to run any later for the ceremony. Jamie does not rush which is a great quality, but I was disappointed that my aunt did not get any makeup for the wedding. Also, I was not offered a refund for my aunt’s session even though I had already paid for the service. Again, I would hire Jamie again in a second. Her work is amazing and I am truly proud of how I looked on my wedding day. My only suggestion would be to build in more time with her to make sure everyone who is scheduled to get makeup, does.

Robin was a fantastic hair and makeup artist to work with. I'm a photographer based in the Chicago/Milwaukee area and had a large shoot in Denver that I had to pull together on short notice. Robin responded to my request quickly with a clear quote and great examples of her work. I was confident from the start that she was the right choice for our project. Robin's communication was perfect, she was punctual, and her work with our models (different ages, skin tones and genders) was all spot on. Highest recommendation for this professional and talented makeup artist.

Lata Prabhu, InVogue Events was the wedding designer for my wedding ceremony at Hindu Temple, Centennial. The mandap looked very elegant, fresh and traditional. She managed everything seamlessly and hence we didn't have to intervene much ourselves. She is a very good planner and executes all of it in time and perfection. We are very happy with her work. Also, Lata provided me with a very good makeup artist named Desirae for my wedding reception at Stonebrook, Thornton. As I was living in LA and could not personally meet Lata, we discussed over email about my attire, my preferred look and then based on my pictures she suggested the kind of makeup I should go for and I was totally happy with her idea as it was exactly what I was looking for! She did a great job and we all are very happy and satisfied. So I would highly recommend her services to everyone who is looking for a great wedding planner! :) Regards, Mishka

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.

Stephanie Adams was personable and professional. She listened to what I wanted for both hair and makeup and made sure I was happy with the results. She asked for feedback as she applied makeup and was willing to change anything to insure I was happy with the end result. I did a practice run at her studio but she came to my house on my son's wedding day for hair and makeup which was EXTREMELY helpful (and reasonably priced)! I definitely recommend Stephanie Adams.

I got my hair and makeup done for my wedding back in November. It was amazing I had been so stressed throughout the wedding process but my makeup was the least of my worries I had a consult sometime before and discuss exactly what I and they worked with me to create the perfect look! they did exactly what I said and then some. Made me feel confident in the way I looked! my makeup was done so beautifully,I look back on my wedding pictures and I am still amazed that I could look like that🙄

I would highly recommend Cassandra for any occasion where you want to look and feel like the best version of yourself. She is punctual, professional and versatile. She did my makeup for a photoshoot, and I have never looked so good! These are pictures I will treasure forever, largely because my makeup is on point!

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.
