Mia is a phenominal hair stylist and makeup artist! She has done multiple haircuts for me, and she did hair and makeup for me and my whole bridal party on my wedding day. Everyone was very impressed with her skills, not to mention her fun-loving personality. I highly recommend Mia for any of your beauty needs. She really knows her stuff!

I hired Ashley to do my makeup for my Pre-Wedding photo shoot (similar to an engagement shoot but longer and with more outfits) and she did an amazing job! Although our session ended up being shorter than we had expected (due to unforeseen circumstances), Ashley was able to do my makeup perfectly in such a short amount of time! I can't even imagine how much better it would have been if we had the full hour and a half. I usually don't wear makeup on a daily basis, and I was a bit worried about how I would look with a full face of makeup (false lashes and all), but she did a great job of making me still look me. Don't hesitate to hire her if you are in the need of an great makeup artist~

I asked Erin to do a make up and eyelash application for my best friend on her birthday. She came early even with the last minute notice and was able to provide excellent service in an adequate time as well as use impressive make up techniques. Side note: I always tell my friend that she looks like a model therefore she should try out for America's Top Model. She never listened but by the time Erin finished, she was no longer doubting me and my friend looked like she was ready to partake in a glamorous, high-end fashion magazine photo shoot. I appreciate Erin's services, it was definitely a highlight of my friend's birthday and highly recommend her. I certainly will hire her for any future events or special occasions.

Thao was hired to do my bridal hair and makeup. There were never enough words for me to express my gratitude and appreciation to Thao. She has done an exceptional service for my special day. She was absolutely a professional and amazing stylist. She was very patience, creative, and sensational. She has done a wonderful job to help me becoming one of the most beautiful brides. I was very glad to find her from Facebook. She is not only a skillful stylist but she is also very well knowledgeable on cosmetics and skincare. Her informative advices saved me a lot of headaches during my wedding preparation. Check out my photos. I hope sharing my experience with Thao can help you find your right stylist. Good luck!

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.

I booked Roma for my engagement photo shoot. She arrived right on time (early to be exact). She was ready to rock n roll upon arrival. She did my makeup for my photo shoot. She did a fantastic job!! To be honest we started at 7am this morning and here it is 10+ hours later, and my makeup is still intacted perfectly! The quality of service I received from Roma went above and beyond my standards, and I am very happy with the final outcome! Great value and very professional! I cannot wait to work with Roma in the future. I highly recommend her! Thank you Roma!

Martha is absolutely amazing! She is talented and understands how to elevate each woman’s features. She understood how to apply my make up for two different events one that was for professional photos and one for a wedding and in both instances the make up was very different but definitely catered to my skin tone! She has a gift and can see beauty in everyone!

Francisca is an amazing lady. She was extremely reliable, professional and prepared. I had a photo shoot where a model needed her makeup done. Francisca was quick to communicate with me prior to the photo shoot to reduce my anxiety. She also listened closely to the type of look that I was going for. Her kit and the way she applied the makeup was sterile and she was at the event very early (she is more than punctual!). I will definitely hire her again. What great talent. Thanks Fran!

Booked OharaBeauty for a photo shoot and she did exceptional with matching my skin tone perfectly to the product/foundation. Will definitely book OharaBeauty in the near future. For someone who doesn't wear a full face of product regularly, OharaBeauty did a fantastic job and the results were AMAZING!!

Pensee's flowers for my wedding in August 2013 were incredibly beautiful. I asked for a romantic look. She executed it flawlessly with a variety of peonies, roses, angels breath and more. The arrangements we're whispy and perfect for the look of my wedding. I got many compliments and the photos were gorgeous. She brought me very large alter arrangements, arrangements for the cake table and bar, as well as centerpieces for more than 20 tables all at a very reasonable price. She set-up early on the same day of my wedding and I did not have to worry about a thing. I highly recommend her for your wedding needs!!

I needed makeup done for a photoshoot for my upcoming blog! Rita blew it out of the park!!!! I had never gotten my makeup "done" before nor am I an everyday makeup wearer. I was very concerned about it being natural, especially since it was for an outlet of which I did not want to appear as something I wasn't. Rita completely understood where I was coming from, listening to her client as any great professional does. What was even better, is that she couched me through what was going on. She explained the colors and techniques she was using on my face, opposed to treating me like a "Barbie doll". Because of Rita and her artistry, I was more confident during my shoot and the photos turned out AMAZING! I would recommend FACADE to any and every one.

Ms. Evans was an absolute pleasure to work with!!! I booked her for my engagement photo shoot. The initial correspondence was such a breeze. She was VERY responsive to all of my questions and concerns and made me feel at ease. After reviewing her work and looking through her website I knew I was ready to book! I told her exactly what she would be working with and sent her some examples of the type of makeup styles I like and she DELIVERED!!! My engagement photos were absolutely stunning and all thanks to Lynette and her undeniable natural talent! I look forward to working with her again for my wedding day and my mother and sisters are already excited Lol!!

I was nervous to get my makeup done for my prom because I had a very particular look I was going for. I was recommended to Maryam by a few friends. After looking at her photos on Instagram, i definitely trusted her. Upon arriving, she seated me and asked me what I preferred and was very helpful in achieving the look I wanted. She made sure before doing anything that it was what I wanted. She made me look beautiful and I couldn’t have been happier with the amazing work she did. She was extremely patient and careful in making sure I looked exactly the way l wanted to. Definitely recommend her!! She is so sweet and great at her job!

This experience was very effortless. I explained that I wanted a glittery purple glam look for a 'mystical' themed photo shoot and I was very pleased with the outcome!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a personal stylist?

To find a fashion consultant, start by browsing portfolios online. Styling is a visual art, so finding a fashion consultant who fits the style you desire is key. Great personal stylists aren’t confined to one style, but if you’re seeking a hipper, fashion-forward vibe, you’d do well to find someone with a modern portfolio, while a fashion consultant with a consistently refined style could be a better fit if you’d prefer a more conservative look. Reading reviews is also helpful for learning more about the fashion consultant. Research their training, background and years of experience. After reviewing websites and Instagram accounts, meet with the stylist in person to learn how well they fit your personality; some fashion consultants offer a free phone consultation prior to hiring. Before hiring, make sure you clearly understand their terms of service and payment.

What do image consultants do?

Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion, such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion either using either what the client owns or taking a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, your lifestyle, and what you hope to present to the world, and will then determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit one area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve. Personal shopping is another service that image consultants provide. After an image assessment, they can either shop with you or shop on your behalf to find you key pieces you need.

What is a fashion consultant?

A fashion consultant is a paid professional who will advise you on what to wear and how to wear it to fit your desired lifestyle or career goals. A fashion consultant can provide many services including personal shopping, closet audits, beauty consultations, style consultations and ongoing seasonal services. A fashion consultant often has a design or fashion background (although this is not required) and an innate sense of style. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the colors, cuts and designs we think suit us. A fashion consultant comes in with fresh eyes and provides constructive feedback to guide your style choices.

During your initial meeting, your fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and learn what you hope to achieve. They’ll identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you how to wear items together. Many consultants create style lookbooks for their clients explaining things like exactly which shoes to wear with what pants and how to accessorize each look. Fashion consultants are a great option for people who are updating their style due to age, career changes or body changes, or who are just ready for a new look and feel. Most fashion consultants charge by the hour, with some offering packages and others working from a retainer.

What is a personal shopper?

Personal shoppers take the pain out of having good fashion. Personal shoppers are paid professionals who work with women, men or children who need style assistance. If you are stuck in a fashion rut, are unsure how to dress in a way that flatters your body, need to revamp your image, or want a more professional career look, personal shoppers can help. Personal shoppers identify the look their client wants to achieve and purchase the necessary clothing and accessories to achieve it. The process often begins with an initial consultation with the client to understand their style goals. This consultation may include a closet “audit,” an assessment of the client’s current wardrobe to see what items can be eliminated and what must be purchased to achieve the desired style.

The client and the personal shopper can shop together, selecting items as a team. The personal shopper may also shop on behalf of the client, then bring all items to the client for a final decision. A third option is pre-shopping, where the personal shopper reaches the store(s) ahead of the client and sets aside clothing for the client to try on, expediting the whole process — a win for anyone who hates spending time in the mall. Personal shoppers can also be hired for one-time events such as weddings, vacations or birthdays. You can also enlist a personal shopper to do your gift shopping for you. Overall, a personal shopper is an investment in making good style choices.

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.
