I didn’t want to write this review because Bri is such a sweet person, but I feel that I have to. I was very disappointed and felt uncomfortable the whole night for so many reasons, and didn’t even take part in any photo taking. So no memories from that night. * this review is long but I couldn’t say what happened without giving details. I hired Bri back in December 2017 for a wedding in March 2018. After communicating back and forth the day was here. In the beginning I only hired Bri for makeup, but then change it to hair and makeup to save myself stress and time By hiring a professional. I had asked for the glam makeup look and old fashion glamorous Hollywood curly hair style. I was concerned about timing so I asked Bri how many hours would she need and what time we should meet? The wedding ceremony is ‪at 5:00pm‬. She said ‪2:00pm‬ would be a good time. Day of event I texted her and she said she will see me ‪at 2:00‬. ‪2:00‬ o’clock came and no Bri. Then I got a text saying she was driving in from Miami and will be at the hotel ‪at 2:30‬ because of traffic, and assured me that she will still have enough time to do everything. By the time she showed up it was almost ‪3:00pm‬ (1 hour late). As soon as she walked in the door I asked her would she still have enough time to do both? Again she assured me it will be fine. When she was working on my hair, I was concern of the outcome so I asked if it will look like the picture I sent her awhile back of what I wanted it to look like. I even showed her a picture of what I was afraid and didn’t want it to look like. She said it will not be like that at all. I knew for a fact to get those waves you would have to curl the hair then set it in rollers to have the hair set for waves . All I saw was individual loose curls, and to set the front she used facial tissue paper ( how that thin tissue paper was supposed to give it body curl I had no clue) but I’m not the professional. Next thing I know it was ‪4:00pm‬ keep in mind that we had set a plan for me to leave ‪at 4:00-4:15‬ the latest. ( ceremony is ‪at 5:00‬ and it takes 20-30 min to get Uber and to get to the venue) She wasn’t done so I had no choice but to push the time out even more. By the time she was done it was ‪4:40‬. I hurried to put my dress on take a quick look at my makeup and hair grab some of my makeup products ( ones that I could find quickly, wasn’t much) so I can fix the things that bothered me in the car on the way to the event. I finally make it downstairs request and Uber at it was ‪4:50‬. I was not going to make it to the wedding on time that’s for sure. I was LATE!!! and didn’t make it for the ceremony had to stand out in the hallway until it was done. ........ so overall my experience with Bri was stressful. I didn’t like my makeup, but because she showed up an hour late I had no time to fix the things that bothered me. I felt like I paid $100 for glam makeup and it was not glam looking ( my eyebrows really bothered me) I tried to fix it as much as I can in the car on the way to the event, but I still felt like I looked nothing like I pictured myself). *side note there were other makeup artists that quoted me $80, but I thought you get what you pay for so went with the more expensive quote. .......My hair.... I was VERY VERY disappointed in my hair by the time Bri was done with my hair it looked nothing like the picture I sent her. The top part looked liked I had a limp birds nest and my glamorous wavy curls was nothing but long loose curl ( something I expressed to Bri of what I didn’t want). 10min outside there weren’t any curls it was now just straight because of the weather and the weight of my long hair. Again with no time I had to leave it the way it was. When Bri quoted me for hair and makeup combo she said down curls would be $60, but when I sent her the picture she said $80 so I said okay because that hair style takes time to set etc. Again I was very late, I had no choice there was nothing that could of been done there was literally no TIME. I had to run out so fast as I could.. 1. I had to go with the first pair of shoes I could grab. 2. Didn’t get to grab or put on the jewelry I had planned on wearing that night. 3. Didn’t get to put on the hair pin I bought just for this event. Sigh! So the whole night I wasn’t myself because I felt everything was off and I was in a grumpy mood. I spent $400 on a dress ( just for this event) $100 on makeup $80 on hair $50 for hair pin... All that money spent and I looked nothing like I had hope for planned/ paid for and missed part of the wedding/ friends and family photos. Very disappointed and felt I missed out on an event I had planned for months in advance.

I am so thankful and grateful that I found Courtney for my wedding day hair and makeup! She was also the make up artist for 5 of my bridesmaids. She was absolutely wonderful to work with and does an amazing job. We spoke over the phone months in advance to work out a timely day of schedule. She came to my hotel for my trial make up run, she helped me pick out hair extensions prior to the wedding, and even pre-curled them for the wedding day. She is so accommodating. She will hear your ideas about how you want everything done but still give her professional advice.Thank you Courtney!

My experience with AM GLAMM for my wedding was great. I searched for what seemed forever to find a team that would do both hair and makeup in the Lauderdale area. I originally booked with Martha for makeup and was bummed that she ended up not being available on my wedding day after I did a trial with her, but her replacement Wendy was excellent and Martha was sure to still make the experience favorable. I had Karolina do mine and the bridal party’s hair and she did AMAZING! I highly recommend her! Thank you for a favorable experience and working with me to fix things and assure me all would still be great on my wedding day Martha.

It is very easy to see why Stan is in such high demand. If you want an excellent hairstylist whom has worked with models, brides and professional makeup artists/photographers than call Stan!!!!

Olivia, went above and beyond in every single facet. Even though I hired her to be my makeup artist (after seeing how well she does her own makeup in person, I am very picky btw) she was there for me as a Bride in ways I didn’t anticipate. She helped me in any way possible. Her professionalism is a rarity to find and I was completely surprised by how organized and transparently thorough she was. Her personality is a joy and she really made me feel and look like a Queen. I was truly, a beautiful bride because she listened to what I wanted to feel and look like. Thank you, Olivia. You are exceptional!

I was in town for the weekend and needed someone to do my hair and makeup for an event I was attending. I decided on Easy Glam by Sam and all I can say is WOW!!!! I loved everything about my appointment. Samantha is an amazing makeup artist and my hair never looked more elegant. She really knows her stuff. I wish she was in the DC area but you can bet that any time I am in Miami, which is often, I will use her for my hair and makeup.

Jody was an awesome makeup artist. She was prompt to respond to my questions, texts and emails. She worked around my bride's schedule for the trial and was very attentive, understanding and open-minded to my bride's needs and wants. She was at the meeting place on time with all her equipment. My bride was very satisfied with the final product. I will definitely recommend her as a makeup artist.

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.

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.

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.
