First of all, I would like to give a big thank you to Hair to Eternity for making me and my friends' prom night special and memorable!!!! They arrived on time and were super friendly. I can't stress enough how much fun we had getting our hair done! Stylists were funny, friendly, and most importantly passionated. They truly cared for us and made sure that we feel confident and happy in our hair updos! The results were STUNNING!! Couldn't be any happier with it! I highly highly recommend them and would absolutely contact​ them again for future events! <3

Michelle did the make up for my wedding a couple years ago. She was recommended by my hair stylist and I could not have been happier with her! We had a mix of styles and ages - She did the make up for the mothers of the bride and groom, aunts, bridesmaids and me, the bride. Some of us like a more glam look and others prefer a more natural look and Michelle was able to accommodate everyone. She made each girl feel beautiful but still comfortable. I've been to a few weddings where people are borderline unrecognizable but for my wedding Michelle did the perfect look for each girl so we looked fabulous but not overboard. She helped me pick out the perfect eye and lip colors and would make suggestions without any pressure. She did about 8 girls in just 4 or 5 hours and it never felt rushed. She was responsive, on time and went above and beyond for us, traveling to 2 locations (hotel and venue) just to get a few pictures of us getting ready at the venue. Her prices are comparable to others I have seen but the quality of her work and her customer service are worth a lot more. Not to mention she is fun and sweet and a pleasure to have around on the big day! I cannot say enough great things about Michelle and would highly recommend her to any friends getting married in the area. THANK YOU MICHELLE!!!!!!

Sharleen is the sweetest person. She does an amazing job, I’m having her do my wedding day make up but my trial was fantastic! She knew the exact colors that would look great on my face and gave all my bridesmaids tips and answered questions the entire trial! I highly suggest Sharleen she is professional, reliable, and knows what she is doing!

Colleen is an extremely talented stylist. I have been going to her for the past 5 years and I wouldn't trust my hair to anyone else. She has done cuts, colors, treatments, waxing and many styles for weddings including my own! Even though I moved I still travel to see her. I highly recommend Colleen.

I needed an ensemble for a very important occasion that came up unexpectedly. Jennifer not only helped me with a dress. she helped me complete the outfit with shoes, bag and jewelry. The complete outfit was a big hit with my husband and the other couple we were going with. She was very kind, patient and knowledgeable. Jennifer will always be my go to stylist when I need or want help to find a suitable outfit for any occasion. she is a treasure!!!

Robin is the absolute best when it comes to formal hairstyles! She's done my hair for two proms and my wedding, and she's able to work wonders; the styles were always perfect, and they lasted all night long. My hair has turned out beautifully every single time she's done it, and I don't think anyone could ask for a better stylist. Highly recommended!

      Calvina is awesome! Don't hesitate to have her do your make up. She did mine for a pre- wedding function and I got many compliments at the event. I was so pleased, i had her come back the next day to do my make up for the wedding--again a super job!

      I had an amazing visit at elle salon. Had the pleasure of having the owner, Lisa DeLeo, brighten up my color, add some foils and changed up my haircut. She is a master stylist with amazing talent. Love the atmosphere and all the staff taking care of me. Thank you Lisa and Elle staff.

      Britney was absolutely amazing! Very professional, always prompt in replying to messages I sent her and always welcomed different ideas when it came to the planning of my wardrobe. Every meeting we had, she was very thorough and listened to everything that I said; from likes to dislikes and everything in-between. Before we even met for the first time, she sent me a detailed questionnaire to help her understand what I was looking for. From then, in our first meeting, she went through a solid outline of what she normally does when it comes to planning with clients. She went through the questionnaire with me and answered all of my questions. After our sessions, she would always follow up with a recap of everything and was willing to modify our plan as we went. I always felt like she had a great eye for the things that I was looking for and that, even if she got me to try new things, she respected the boundaries of what I was and wasn't willing to wear. I would definitely recommend her as a wardrobe stylist, especially if you're new to the idea and have no idea where to start.

I will be getting credit for this internship through my school. I would love to intern through your wardrobe department as a stylist if available. If not I will also be interested in working with other departments. The senior internship runs for five weeks. It starts on April 15th and will end on May 23rd. I've attached a brochure about the program as well as a resume. If you have any other questions please contact me at Charris1412@yahoo.com. I'm am very sorry for the short notice, but my proposal is due tomorrow. I have been trying to find an internship for fashon, but it's been really hard finding a place that will take me because I am not in college. I am available this week to come by if needed. I am very interested in working with you because I have a really big passion for fashion and I love dressing people up in varies styles. Please get back to me sometime today. Thank you for your time. I am really looking forward to this experience. Have a good day! Catherine Harris

        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.
        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
