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 was hired for hair and make-up for a bridal party of 4 plus the bride. The trial run went excellent. She listened to what my sister (bride) wanted and it turned out beautiful. On the day of the wedding she did all four of us. Traci had a "plan of attack" that helped everything go as smoothly as possible. Even with all the interruptions, Traci stayed relaxed and determined. 2 of us girls have long hair and 2 of us have medium long hair. Traci did braids and curls and pinning. If something didn't lay right with our hair, she immediately corrected it without anyone asking her to. She wouldn't settle for less than perfection, but also in a timely manner. The hair and make-up lasted all night. My face normally flushes and turns red especially after a lot of dancing. With the air brush make-up she used it looked the same as when she put it on. My hair was really easy to take out at the end of the night. Traci didn't over use hair pins, but everyone's hair did stay secure. Traci is very friendly and we had a great time. The experience was great. It made such a difference doing it inside a house instead of going to the salon. I highly recommend Teaci for hair and make-up.

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!

Working with Patricia was great! Before we met she was very responsive and answered all my questions. She was very sensitive to my needs and asked me detailed questions to make sure she was giving me the look I wanted. She made me feel at ease with the whole process. Not only can she do makeup, she is a wiz with hair! She did my hair and makeup for my bridal shower and I got tons of compliments. Hiring her again for my wedding day! Highly recommend.

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.

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 so amazing for my wedding! She came to my dads house and did all 7 bridesmaids, including my mother and grandmother. She was so professional and prompt. We were all a little dead in the morning and she came in ready to go and soon enough we were all jamming out and looking beautiful! I couldn’t have been more happy with my hair and come to think of it I hadn’t had an updo since prom!! I highly recommend Alexis for anyone’s wedding. You seriously will not be disappointed!!

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.
