We can't begin to thank Teresa enough for her outstanding work during my teenage daughter's first photo shoot. From her instruction on styling during the days leading up to the shoot, to her friendly personality which put us completely at ease right away, to the complete artistry with which she completed my daughter's hair and makeup, Teresa was an absolute pleasure to work with. She easily created the perfect hairstyle and makeup look for each outfit, and was right there to jump in for touch-ups throughout the day. We could not have asked for a better experience, and we hope that we are lucky enough to work with Teresa again soon!

ERIN was GREAT! She arrived to my hotel to do my hair and makeup. Once she got there and laid out all her TOOLS (lol) we did a dry run of what she had in mind for my hair after seeing my dress. She then explained what makeup would look great with my dress. She explained everything she was doing with my makeup look and was very helpful in recommending cost effective products to me. She was great and I recommend her to everyone that comes across her on Thumbtack and will definitely be using her when I am back in the DC/MD area..

Winstead is a multi-talented artist on many platforms that I've had the pleasure of witnessing. Winstead was the hair/makeup artist on set of my first photoshoot in VA, and more recently, he directed and produced my first video interview! His talents know no boundaries, and he's nothing short of a pleasure to work with. Winstead is a true professionsal.

I never normally write reviews but I was so impressed. She made all of us feel special and beautiful. Most makeup artist only do makeup one way( which I hate) but Jaydes makeup capibilties and talents were able to stretch from my daughter (13) who's makeup was very beautiful and age appropriate to my Great grandmother(81) who's makeup was light and elegant. But most importantly my husbands jaw was on the floor. Lol.. THANK YOU SOO MUCH.

When I started planning my wedding, I knew Elzi from Makeup by LZ had to be the one doing the makeup for me and the bridesmaids. Her ability to accentuate the beauty of everyone comes so easy but you can see how much time, patience, and dedication she puts in her work to make sure the best of the best gets created. She is beyond friendly, makes you feel comfortable and makes the process a whole lot of fun. There is a clear communication between you and her so the client always has a say and she tries her best to accommodate any changes. If you ever need makeup doing by Elzi I would strongly recommend her, always!

Where do I start? I submitted two separate TT requests to find a makeup artist and hair stylist to help make three promotion models look their best for my company's photo and video commercial shoot. When Jen responded to my request for a hair stylist, not only did she provide a quote for the service as well as a very beautiful work portfolio, she also told me that she and her team known as the Glam Squad did both hair and makeup. "A Mobile Glam Squad"...... What? I didn't request a team, but a team was the answers to my prayers because they were able to save an incredible amount of time for 6 different sets/scenes at the studio. Jen is so professional and laid out plan on how she and her team would apply their beautiful makeup and do their hair. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome and will definitely be working with JM Designz for all of my company's makeup and hair needs in the future.

She was fantastic! All of my bridesmaids hair looked fabulous, my hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. She was able to do everything from just a few inspiration photos. She was punctual and very easy to work with and she was able to do my mothers makeup even though she wasn’t originally asked to when hired. Great quality, great qualifications, great pricing, AND able to do both hair and makeup.

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.

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.

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.
