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!

Patricia was awesome and styled my hair along with two of my friends (all 3 of us were bridesmaids in a wedding) exactly how we wanted. She got to our hotel right on time and was extremely nice and easy to work with I would recommend her to anyone needing their hair done in Chicago!

I loved Monica she arrived promptly at the hotel the morning of my wedding with extra help to make sure all my girls were ready on time . Everyone looked beautiful , my makeup was amazing I have never looked and felt so beautiful ever in my life . I showed her a picture on pintrest of a hair style I liked and she totally nailed it and my hair held the full 15 hour day it held through a outdoor photoshoot in 89 degree weather tons of humidity and lots of pulling and moving around from the veil . I have very thick hair and it never holds a curl for very long not only did it hold perfectly she was able to make it stay without having to cake me down with heavy hairspray it was soft and bouncy . My pictures turned out amazing my husband kept telling me how amazing I looked all night . The part I loved the most is she let me have the lipstick she used on me so I could re apply after all the kissing and drinking through the night . I had a idea in my head of how I thought I would look on my wedding day and she far exceed my expectations I felt Like a movie star . I will be hiring her again for my sisters wedding she is such a wonderful person and did such a wonderful job .

Patricia Fahey did my hair and she is absolutely amazing, not only are her skills phenomenal but she is very professional. I felt so comfortable with her. She took the time to explain exactly what needed to be done to my hair to achieve the look I wanted and guided me through the whole process. She didn't rush through and the prices are very reasonable. My hair looks and feels great! I have never left a salon satisfied...until today. I am beyond happy with my hair and this will be the only salon I will be going to from now on! Thank you Patricia!

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.

Cristina and her team are absolutely the best. She did my hair and makeup test six months prior to my wedding and I fell in love with her work. She is the sweetest, most talented person and my hair and makeup looked amazing. My mom and sister loved her too. I highly recommend her amazing work!!! P.S. I have also found my new hair stylist for haircuts as well.

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!

Allyson made me feel like such a beautiful bridesmaid on my friend's special day! Through every prom and formal event, I have never liked how my hair has turned out, until now. I told her how other stylists have always made my hair way too big, and she totally understood what I wanted! All I asked for was something half up half down, and Allyson was able to take that and run with it and turn it into a beautiful hairstyle. I got so many compliments! I'd definitely recommend Allyson for any of your hair needs!

This review is for anyone looking to make a change and needs a trustworthy and talented stylist. Katie is knowledgeable, skilled, and will give you a cut & color that makes you feel incredible when you walk out the door (and for weeks after.) Every single time the consultation is relaxed (but always maintains a high sense of professionalism). We've experimented with multiple colors over the years and each time our time together has ended in smiles, hugs, and another appointment already scheduled. Katie is amazing and the only person I will trust with my hair. 10 STARS!!!

Alexis was amazing. She was incredibly responsive and professional from the start, which I so appreciate. She drove far to come to my house for the trial and on my wedding day.... she arrived early and was very calming and sweet. I received compliments all night long on my updo. I didn’t want it so formal that it didn’t look natural. She was able to give a romantic look while holding it enough to stay in place all night outdoors in crazy humidity. I’ve had my hair done multiple times in the past for weddings and Alexis by far was my favorite.

Marisa is a highly knowledgeable stylist who is willing to try new things and knows how to best manage and care for my color and hair type. I love her so much that although I live out of state, I wait to have my hair cares for by her until I’m in town! I won’t let anyone else touch it!

    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.
