Tiffany is a very talented hairstylist and makeup artist. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding 2 weeks ago. She stayed with me from 10am-745pm doing the hair and makeup for my mom, sister and I. She stayed after so that I could change my hair and makeup for an evening look. She was a calming soul and I can not thank you enough!

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!!!!!!

I had a really great experience with Makeup by Khushboo! I went to a 1920s themed event and Khushboo jumped right in, sending me pictures of different makeup and hair styles, asking plenty of questions to find out what I wanted, telling me what I would need to have on my end, etc. She was really kind and the results were so lovely! I was incredibly pleased with this experience and would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

We hired Cleio for spring cleaning of our yard. He did an amazing job and left our yard in a beautiful state. I like to work in my yard for routine things but will definitely consider hiring him for spring and fall yard cleanup in future.

Monica and Charlene did an amazing job at our wedding 8 years ago! They did 6 bridesmaids, one mother of the bride and of course me, the bride's hair and make up. Monica even took the time to go over to my husband and nephews to style their hair. They also stayed until after the ceremony was over to give my make up a touch up and turn my hair into an up do before the reception. I've been a client of Monicas for 12 years and now my whole family sees her. These two ladies completed hair and makeup for 8 females and 3 males in a few hours, with tons of time to spare. I recommend these ladies to any bride who wants their wedding day to be relaxing and stress free.

If you want the best then Robin is the one you need to go to. My daughter used Robin to do her hair and makeup for her wedding. Robin also did my hair, my mom's hair and three of the bridesmaids hair. Not only did my daughters hair and makeup look fantastic but she appeared like an angel floating down the aisle. The pictures were absolutely gorgeous because of the detail Robin put into the hair design and makeup. When it comes to trusting someone to make that special day memorable we couldn't have asked for a better person. Robin is not only professional, but she takes the time to get to know the people she is working with, their likes and dislikes. She really listens to what you have in mind as far as hair styles go. Not only is Robin a professional hair and makeup artist but she goes out of her way to make your special day as stress free as possible. She knows the time limits you are facing to get everything done. A few months after my daughters wedding, we were attending a friends daughters wedding and her hair stylist got sick. Needless to say they were in a panic. I called Robin and she was able to get to the church and do the bride, brides mother, and bridesmaids hair before the wedding. She's the best!!!

Jen has the ability to figure out how we want our makeup to look. She takes the time to listen and then go to work to make it happen. She tells us that beauty is not a one size fit all concept, and makes us all feel beautiful in our own skin (literally!).

I've hired at least five different makeup artists for different occasions and this girl by far has been my favorite. I mean I looked flawless. She was super professional, punctual, did exactly what I wanted and was incredibly sweet. I'm pretty particular with makeup and she executed this better than anyone I've hired. I'm getting married soon and I'm definitely booking her. Worth every penny!!

Tara is an absolute star. There is no one better in the profession. You will look and feel radiant when she's done. She is thoughtful in her process, considering your hair's quality/structure/health and make helpful recommendations to your hair and skincare routines that will help you maintain healthy hair and skin and make your life easier. Tara's makeup skills are at par with the pro's in Hollywood. You'll look Insta-ready, flawless, fierce, bold, beautiful or simple and subdued- whatever you're looking for, Tara can make it happen. Whether the style you're looking for is complicated or you're just looking for delicate waves, Tara takes the time to listen, to compare pictures, to make helpful suggestions and then make your dream a reality. It's almost too good to be true, but Tara is one in a million. Her prices are reasonable and considerate of a girl or guy on a budget. She does not skimp. She's patient and thoughtful, responsive and punctual and never cancels/reschedules. If you've decided to go elsewhere, you've made the wrong decision. She does hair and makeup so you're getting the entire package for one price. If you're a bride, you can breathe a sigh of relief at knowing you're going to look as radiant as you feel on your big day and you could even splurge on your bridesmaids and pay for them too as Tara's prices are unbeatable! If you can't manage that, your bridesmaids will love you for giving them someone with so much talent who so darn affordable and you will all look AMAZING!!!

    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.
