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!

I couldn't have been happier with my make up for my wedding day. I had a trial run with Alana and her hair stylist. Alana listened to what I wanted and changed anything I asked for from the trial run to make sure I was happy for my wedding day. I told her I was very self conscious of my skin and she did a fantastic job, used great make up with high coverage. I was very happy with my make up! Stella was the hair stylist and didn't seem as organized as Alana. She did understand that I wanted a loose wave for the wedding and we talked about hair extensions to give me that wave that would hold through the night. We talked about different hair sprays and she used one at the trial that kept my hair wavy for 2 days. Well, she forgot my hair extensions at home the day of the wedding, which was 2 hours away so there was no time to go back for them. Then we ran out of time and she started doing my hair 8 minutes before we were supposed to leave for our "first look" She spent about 17 minutes curling my hair. It didn't look anything like the trial run, she used a different hair spray and it was flat by the time of the ceremony. All in all I paid her $242 between the trial run, wedding day, travel fee and tip to have my hair straight by the time of the ceremony. Definitely go with Alana for make up, again, I couldn't have been happier. But make sure to have Stella's contact information to check in with her the day before your event to make sure she has everything you used or discussed during your trial run.

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 .

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.

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!

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!

As the Mother of the bride I was thrilled with my makeup application! The compliments I received were endless....we were actually caught out in the rain at the end of the ceremony and my airbrush makeup didn't move!! THANK YOU Suzanne for making me, as the mom, feel so beautiful. My daughter and all of her bridesmaids were stunning and the LOVED their looks! You have an amazing talent!

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!!!

I love working with Dani! she is very professional with my clients and does an amazing job with makeup and hair. As a professional photographer, having a great makeup artist helps tremendously with easing the client about their look and also great makeup reduces my editing time. Dani's work shows far better than other makeup artists i have worked with, her attention to details and the way she applies the makeup lasts the whole day during out shoots. Also she stays and touches up the look along with adjusting it and changing it with ease as we move through different outfits and themes. on top of all that She uses the best makeup brands a swell on my clients impresses them every time! I really recommend working with Dani, she is very friendly professional, a true artist and also very helpful on set.

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.

    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.

    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 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.
