Christie and her team provided hair and makeup services for myself, my bridesmaids and mothers on my wedding day. We couldn't have asked for a better team! They were on time, fun and worked efficiently. All ladies were thrilled with how their hair and makeup looked, as well. I highly recommend Polished for hair and/or makeup!

Chrissy was amazing ! I have never looked more beautiful, laughed more or felt more pampered. Chrissy and Dominique her partner were extremely professional, but also made me feel at ease as if I were sitting with my two girlfriends chatting over wine. Did I mention I also looked stunning? Whenever I visit New Orleans I will find the need for hair, makeup, or skin services so I can be pampered by Chrissy again. Thank you Chrissy for making my day more special.

I cannot recommend Anna enough! I was desperately searching for a smart, creative, and reliable makeup artist who would understand the look that I was going for, and I found all of that and more in Anna. She was incredibly professional from the get-go and her response time was very quick -- just what a bride needs! She was very patient and gracious when I was running late for both the trial and the wedding day, and she managed to get me, my bridesmaids, and my family all made up in time anyway. And we all looked stunning! I felt like I was in the capable hands of a friend the whole time. Definitely a positive experience all around and I will be giving her number to everyone I know!

Tiffani's Mirror Salon

    All I need to say is "wow, she is worth the visit." Tiffani did an awesome job on my hair and makeup in April. I had an important wedding to attend with my boyfriend, and knew there will be many family members that I needed to meet for the first time. So after talking to her, she definitely went the right direction by making my hair color pop with the great styling. The makeup with the lashes did wonders on me. It was so natural looking and light but at the same time people responded by wow's. The best part is the hair style and makeup lasted the WHOLE night from 3 to 12. I definitely recommend.

    September was amazing! She held a tutorial for a bridal shower we had. She provided snacks and drinks for us as she worked on the bride's makeup. The place was nice snd had great decorations. Most importantly, the makeup and tips were amazing. Her demo even showed up how to go from a day to night look. I almost forget, the tutorial came with recommendations and personalized notebook. If Im ever in need of a makeup artist against the New Orleans area, Im using her. I recommend her for any occassion!

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
