"Heather Hebron, guru of all beauty, artist and right hand to God’s every masterpiece, a natural talent with an aesthetic eye, solid knowledge and extensive experience in a multitude of settings. She will bring out your best you. Whether your goal is to gain a new look, reach your signature go to, try a refreshing trend, or to be beautified to your ultimate you as you celebrate any of life’s cherished milestones, Heather is your answer! Matched with an optimistic, bubbly, and vibrant personality, Heather also has an eye for beauty, an ear to take in your desires and needs, a heart to give you the best, and the ultimate passion led deliverance to each and every client. She will perfect and accentuate your beauty as a master make-up artist, brilliant colourist, and talented stylist whether it’s styling alone or cutting and shaping your hair. I met Heather 20 years ago and within the first 10 minutes I knew she was a friend for life and now she is family, not by blood but by choice. I have searched for the last 20 years for someone to cut, color, and style my hair with even a semi- closeness to what she does. I have yet to find a single person that compares. Heather can take an overdue and over processed head of hair to its best, the angle and technique that she uses will leave your hair at its healthiest and easiest to style and manage. She found the best cut and color for my facial shape and structure as well as for my lifestyle. I still cannot explain how magical her touch is. My hair became easier to manage and naturally layed and flipped under in a way that it had never done. I felt more confident and radiant especially after my husband took notice. To this day he still requests that I go to Heather for my next cut. With color and a brush, she transformed my dull limp hair into a rich, vibrant asset and my pre-aging, dry skin into a glowing youthful presence. I have watched as she brought a beautiful bride to radiate as a queen, a teenager battling the teen years received a minimal touch of color left her chair as a confident graceful young lady, a woman desiring a change to suit her new life was instantly renewed to her youth, a man looking for a new edge walked out feeling on top of the world, a lady battling hair loss received a cut and color of perfection that transformed her hair into the thickness she longed for. I could go on to list her expertise in editorial prints, highlight her addition to runways, applaud her triumphs at fashion week, celebrate her clientele after opening a salon, and acknowledge her ability to bring everlasting memories to a multitude of bridal parties, but I’ll put the ball in your court as you take seat into an experience of a lifetime and come out as the best you that you could imagine!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

How much should you tip a wedding makeup artist?

Wedding makeup artists ensure you and your bridal party are looking your best bright and early on your wedding day. Tipping a wedding makeup artist for their hard work is standard practice, and is also greatly appreciated. A tip of 15 percent to 20 percent of the total bill is appropriate. You may consider tipping extra if the makeup artist or someone on their team went above and beyond — for example, squeezing in Aunt Martha at the last second or redoing a flower girl’s hair free of charge after she dunked it in the fountain.

A gratuity is a reflection of a job well done, so if the wedding makeup artist was late, did a shoddy job or didn’t provide all the services you negotiated, you are not required to tip. Talk with your wedding makeup artist prior to the event to ask how they prefer payment and gratuity to be handled. Can you pay by credit card the day of the event and include a tip then? Do you need to pay in cash the day of the event? Find out ahead of time how to manage payment for services so you can be prepared with cash or credit cards as needed. Even better, delegate the task of payment to someone in your bridal party so you can just enjoy your day.
