I hired Vesta to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. I'm very pleased with the experience and would definitely recommend her. She listened to what I wanted and gave me lovely hair/makeup. But more than that she was just a lovely person to work with. She was easy to talk to and put me at ease. Communications were great; I sent her photos of hair/makeup I liked and we talked over that. A few weeks before the wedding we did a trial run at her gorgeous apartment. The trial run lasted a good four hours - Vesta didn't rush it at any point, even trying out two different "up-do" hairstyles on me until we were happy. She listened to what I wanted and responded. On the wedding day itself I was running a little late and was stressed out but Vesta's calming personality helped ease me a little. She again did great hair and makeup (I still had all my eye makeup on largely intact the next morning - I know it's bad that I didn't take it off, but it shows it was long lasting!). She also helped secure my headpiece. Both on the day and at the trial she also took nice photos that she shared with me. She's 100% competent as a hair/makeup artist but she also adds that little extra in that she's calming, makes you feel relaxed, and says very sweet things. Recommended.

I could not wait to review Ochanya. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding reshoot. I couldn't have been happier with her work. She did just as I wanted and checked off every detail I requested. I am so in love with the look. She gave me a flawless makeup application that lasted for hours. I was so obsessed with the look that I did not want to wash off at the end of the night. Not only is she such a talented makeup artist and hairstylist, she is such a sweet person. You can immediately feel comfortable talking to her about anything. I highly recommend her to anyone. I cannot wait to work with her in the future. I found my go to artist for sure!!

Steph did such an amazing job! I loved my hair and makeup as well as my bridesmaids'. She showed up right on time and kept everyone on schedule and helped me keep my nerves in check. She was really knowledgeable and provided many tips prior to the wedding day as well helping me choose the right hair extensions and skin care.

Aleetha and Christine were amazing. They are so bubbly and sweet. They're skills are seriously good. My whole bridal party looked awesome, natural and flawless. We had ladies with complicated hair and Aleetha made them look great and did it in a timely matter. They are awesome and fast. I'm so glad I signed up to have them stay for pictures. It put me at ease having them there. They made me really feel like a queen/bride. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone wanting to look and feel beautiful on their special day.

Marija did my hair and makeup when I was in New York for an event. She and her sister were amazing to work with! Not only did Marija ask for pictures, but she listened to what look I wanted and created a look that was perfect! The quality of work was very high; my hair and makeup looked absolutely stunning and both lasted throughout a long evening! Both ladies have awesome personalities and I had a blast sitting in the chair and talking with them. I hope to be back in NY for another formal event, as I would love to work with them again!

Dorothy was great!! I hired her to do hair and makeup for my wedding. During our makeup and hair trial, she was attentive, listening to what I wanted while giving me great advice (I don’t wear makeup period). I shared my opinions and feedback leading up to the day of (email and texts), and she nailed it! My hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted and PERFECT on my wedding day. She even traveled with me to the venue so she could pin my veil and floral hair comb into my hair and add finishing touches before First Look. Thank you so much, Dorothy!!

My mom has had makeup done 3 times in her life, the third one being with Elysa and she said to me when her makeup was done that it's the only time she's actually been happy with the results. She absolutely LOVED her makeup! She looked beautiful, not overdone, but an enhanced version of herself. It was important to my mom that her lashes look natural and Elysa had plenty to choose from so my mom found the right ones for her. That same day Elysa also did hair and makeup for my aunt, and hair for myself and my cousin. We were a bit apprehensive because we'd all had experiences in the past where we were not pleased with our makeup or hair as done by other professionals. We were all going to a wedding that afternoon. Elysa was punctual, organized and very professional. She works efficiently and throughly. But aside from that she was warm and pleasant. This time our experience was very different- all 4 of us loved how we looked, thanks to Elysa!! We wouldn't hesitate to call her again or recommend her to friends and family. I would book her for my wedding in a heartbeat!

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.

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.

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.
