Valen is was absolutely great for my event. We did a trial run which I would definitely recommend. It helped get both of us on the same page for what I was hoping for and what I would look like with certain styles. At the real event, Valen’s makeup made me feel very beautiful and glamorous with my theme without making me feel like I wasn’t myself and my hair looked great without looking too crunchy or plastic with hairspray. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a hair/makeup artist!

Cheryl was able to step in to do my wedding hair and makeup after a last minute cancelation, and I'm so grateful! She is so knowledgable about what she does, and I was extremely happy with the finished product. I highly recommend Cheryl, especially for weddings!

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.

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!!!!!!

Ashely is incredible, I booked her last-minute and she did my hair and makeup for a black-tie event. Everything looked amazing and lasted the entire night, plus the whole process went smoothly because she's very responsive and truly cares about every detail. I would definitely have her glam me up again!

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!!!

I was lucky to have met Janis through the raving recommendation of a good friend. I was looking for a makeup artist who specialized on a "natural" look as I do not usually wear makeup. As soon as I met with Janis, I knew she was exactly who I was looking for. She was soo nice, friendly, professional, but you know she truly loves what she does. She was exceptional in my airbrush makeup which looked sooo natural on me and lasted all day and night, as well as her talent on eyes and lips. She did amazing work on my bridesmaids as well as my mom, all were soo happy with the outcome. Janis not only does a beautiful job, she is also soo friendly and comfortable- I enjoyed spending time with her. Thanks Janis!! Lisa St. Arnaud (Bouchard)

I own a photography studio, and have had Grace perform hair and makeup services for over 20 photo shoots. Every time I have worked with Grace and the girls at Blushing Brides, I have felt the need to sing Grace's praises to anyone that would listen. Besides working with Grace in a third party type of setting, I recommended Grace for a very important event in my personal life - to do hair and makeup for my twin sister's wedding last October. Everyone remarked how they had never seen my mother look so stunning, and how beautiful and natural my sister's look was. I slept on my updo for two days, and it still looked fantastic! While we were in our rush, we left the hotel for the ceremony and got on the trolley. I received a phone call on the way to the church from Grace, we had left all the flowers for the guys behind! She instantly asked for the address, and drove a half hour out of her way to get us the flowers in time for photos. I also recently received a hair cut and color from Grace, and I've never been happier! My boyfriend keeps remarking at how good it looks, even if I let it air dry. Bottom line is that Grace is a capable, creative, talented and professional beauty artist - no matter the job or capacity you are looking to hire her. She takes an immeasurable amount of pride in her work, and she builds lasting relationships with clients, making each one her friend. I don't know anyone in the industry I would recommend more.

I’ve been a long time customer of Cindy’s. Going on 5+ years now. She’s an expert in cutting my hair, coloring my hair, and styling it. I always leave her chair feeling beautiful. I’ve also seen her work first-hand on brides and entire wedding parties from makeup to hair. You’re in good hands with Cindy. She always takes her time and doesn’t end a job until you’re 1000% happy. The passion in her work is what keeps me a happy, satisfied client. I’ve recommended her to all my friends and family without a second thought.

    Beautious You

    New To Thumbtack

      About

      I do professional hair and makeup for all life events. I offer tape-in hair extensions that are matched directly to your hair color and can be custom colored. They last up to 4 weeks, then we retape them and reuse the hair twice! These extensions are half the price of fusions and look beautifully natural and are perfect for everyday use or weddings/honeymoons because they do not fall out!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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 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.

      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.

      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.
