Working with Winstead Barnes and his staff completed our amazing Miss United States experience. Winstead was very accommodating and responsive. We received Kristine Kaliebe as our hair/makeup artist and she was so fantastic we requested her the next day. She saw the vision we were aiming for and perfected it with her skill and talent. My daughter and I highly recommend working with this team and we will definitely use them again if the opportunity is present.

Jen/JMDesinz was awesome. We had a great time at my trial and then the day of my court house wedding. She listened to what I wanted and we worked together to make it right. She encouraged me to keep my natural curl (which I initially wanted) and actually styled my curly hair. Some of you curly girls know, this is no easy feat. (I've had my hair done multiple times, asking to use my natural curl and every time they straightened my hair and then curled it.) Jen was amazing. We ended up doing a smooth, sleek style due to my now husband's preference and my vision. She uses air brush make-up which I had never tried before. I really liked it. I learned a lot from her about makeup and styling. Her schedule worked so well with mine and she was very easy to get in touch with and swap ideas. Having her over felt like having a friend over who happened to be an excellent, experienced hair and make-up artist. I highly recommend Jen/JMDesignz and will hire her again and again! (Sorry photos are not close up, but there are a couple angles of the hair style.)

I hired this company for hair and make-up for my wedding. They arrived on time (if not early :-) ) and got right to work. Both the hair and make-up artists were able to understand my bridesmaids and my visions and ensure that we looked our best. They accommodated all of my requests and did so with a smile. I would fully recommend this company and plan to use them again in the future for other events.

Jasmine was wonderful to work with! She did an amazing job on my blonde highlights and cut my husband’s hair also. We’ve been confined to our home as I just had a newborn. She made it super easy and I would suggest her to everyone. I’m looking forward to finally having a local hair stylist.

I have thick and long natural hair. I hired Aliaya to do a full sew-in so I could have a break for the next 6 weeks from styling my hair, and so I can swim in the pool and hit the beach in Miami. Aliaya is professional and did a wonderful job on my style. I have an extremely sensitive scalp and Aliaya's braiding and sewing didn't cause me any discomfort. I have a natural looking sew in that will last, and a stylist who pays attention to detail. I highly recommend her.

Priscilla and her hair assistant did such an amazing job for my big day. From the get-go, between communicating quickly and efficiently to setting up the trial on very short notice as my first one did not go very well, Priscilla was amazing. She not only listened to exactly what I wanted, she wasn't afraid to tell me what would look best. And I'm so glad that I listened. The trial went amazing, and she was able to transform that same look on my big day. I felt absolutely beautiful. She also did my maid of honor or come out as well as my mother's make up. She even made room for an ad The trial went amazing, and she was able to transform that same look on my big day. I felt absolutely beautiful.

We all loved how quickly and efficiently she moved, as well as her hair assistant who was amazing as well. We even were finished early and able to enjoy some champagne and relax. Her hair assistant also gave me the exact look I was going for. I would truly recommend Priscilla for any event. Her work is absolutely amazing!

I have been going to get my hair done by Valerie for the past 6 years. I drive 45 min to an hour to get my hair done by her because of her quality of work. One of my pet peeves when it comes to salons is hairdressers have like 3-4 customers at one time which means you can be in the salon for hours. Your appointment time with Valerie is your time. I have very curly natural hair and she knows how to handle my hair without concern.

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.
