Tai is very kind and personal. She did a great job helping me with something completely foreign for me: i-link hair extentions. She was vital in providing guidance and expertise, from what type of extensions to get through how to maintain. She was also very patient, easy to reach, and flexible about services. I would highly recommend her for wedding or routine beauty services!

Traci is absolutely wonderful! I had reached out to her for hair and makeup for my wedding but because of the number of girls I had that needed both, she brought in her friend Kristie who is equally amazing! Traci was super easy to get in touch with and communicate with throughout the whole process. She is worth every penny and is much more reasonable than a lot of quotes I received! After the trial, my hair hadn't turned out exactly how I had hoped because my hair is too thin but Traci gave me some great recommendations for how we could achieve the look I was going for! Just in case I came up with some alternative hairstyles for the big day but they weren't even necessary! Kristie was a rockstar and worked with the hair piece I bought and it worked out perfectly!! On the way to the hotel the morning of my wedding, she was texting me asking if there was anything I needed her to pick up on her way! She is just so thoughtful and sweet! Then when she got there, we got right into hair and makeup but had SO much fun! It was the perfect way to start the day! I'm so grateful for how wonderful both Traci and Kristie were and they were very efficient and accommodating all morning! We were having so much fun, I ended up losing track of time and realized I had to put my dress on and get over to the church! I truly can't speak highly enough of Traci and Kristie and my hair and makeup looked AMAZING!! Everything turned out even better than I could have hoped for! I received so many compliments! And my makeup lasted all day and my hair never budged, even with the wind and all the dancing we did! I HIGHLY recommend Traci and will keep her in mind for any events I may have in the future!

Monica did excellent work! She was easy to get a hold of, did a great job for a small price, and worked hard to assure that we were happy with our hair. The hair even stayed throughout many dance moves that evening!

Sandy was great! She did the hair and makeup for my wedding and bridal party. The makeup was perfection. My new husband loved the natural look done just right to complement my features. Everyone looked beautiful. I showed Sandy a picture of the long hair up-do I preferred and again it exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her. I will definitely call her for any special event.

Amanda did my hair and make for a wedding I attended. All I can say was WOW! She completely made me look exactly how I wanted to look but couldn't explain in words. It was almost scary how I didn't have to explain much but she knew exactly what I was looking for. She's a perfectionist and I loved that! Would recommended her to anyone for sure!

Verified review

Jacquee was amazing with make up and hair, the make up looked absolutely flawless. My bridesmaids and I could not have been happier with the make up. Jacquee did my hair and make up and it turned out beautifully, some minor touch ups to the hair but other wise perfect. Some of the other bridesmaids had their hair done by Arlene who works with Jacquee as it was a bigger bridal party and it was pretty disappointing. Arlene couldn't have been a nicer person but I wouldn't recommend her for hair. It was also my fault for not doing a trail run with Arlene as I needed to hire an additional person. Over all experience was good for me, I know the bridal party have a different opinion of the hair.

Allison is amazing at what she does! She always gives me exactly what I want every time. She is the best at coloring and cutting hair, even with my hair which isn't always easy. She listens to me and does even better than I imagined my hair would turn out. I know I can always trust Allison with my hair and makeup and I refer her to everyone!

It was really nice working with Jessica on my trial for my wedding. She is very creative and will be honest with you if your hair needs something (like highlights or extensions) to make it look better. She curled my hair, added knots at the crown, and added a little volume by my forehead which held all night. The knots were super cute (she added her own twist which made them look so much better) and the curls lasted for about 12 hours! She did a great job!

    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.
