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

Tiffany was awesome; I couldn’t have asked for a better stylist. She did both my hair and make up for my wedding. She was extremely accommodating and attentive. Everyone commented on my hair and make up and asked who had done it. I’ll be recommending her to everyone!

For wedding october 8 2017: Alicia was extremely flexible (came in person to my apartment for our demo session and to the reception venue for the wedding) and accommodating, both in advance of my wedding and on the day of. My hair looked really good, and the service itself was exceptional. I highly recommend her services! Back in early 2017, when I was booking appointments for the wedding, when I was still unsure of how many people would want to get their hair done, Alicia advised me that I should reserve as many spots as I might need just in case so that she could plan to bring enough assistants with her. Specifically in our chat conversation, I asked her in march: "Also, if one or two of my bridesmaids or mothers don't want to get their hair done for whatever reason (for example, my friend Abbie has short hair and may not find it worth doing for whatever reason), would I be able to pay less for the second half, according to the number of people who end up needing their hair done? I would of course let you know ahead of time what the final count would be-- I just haven't had conversations with everyone involved yet about whether or not they'll want to have their hair done." She wrote in response: "Yes absolutely. So on the day of the wedding it would just get subtracted from the remaining cost." That reasoning made plenty of sense to me; so, when paying the deposit (equal to half the total balance), I estimated that ten people would want to get their hair done. That number included me, my maid of honor, and 6 bridesmaids, as well one extra slot (just in case a mother or grandmother wanted to get theirs done). I therefore paid a deposit for ten people, with the understanding (based on my conversation with Alicia) that if later we ended up needing fewer slots the balance that I owed would be reduced as needed. The deposit came out to $450. We scheduled an appointment for the hair demo, in which she would sketch out a plan for the hairstyle and test one out to see if I liked it. We originally scheduled a meeting for August 13th, but the week before Alicia emailed me to reschedule because she had a last minute wedding that she needed to help with. I was happy to reschedule, and I appreciated the advance notice. When we did finally have the demo, she made the whole experience effortless and fun. I knitted my own veil, which I would be using with a comb to make it stay in my hair, and we discussed various ways that the hair and veil could complement each other. I have naturally curly hair and it was important to me that my curls were treated with dignity (I've had a lot of bad experiences with stylists straightening out my curls and then re-curling them with an iron, which I was adamant that I did not want for the day of the wedding). Alicia did a really good job of tucking my curls into a beautiful up-do that I shared with all of my friends and family every chance I got. I was super excited. The week of the wedding Alicia talked over phone and through text, and as at that point I had heard back from most (but not all) of the wedding party and close family members about who wanted to have their hair done, I estimated that the full 10 slots would still be needed. We worked out a schedule (so that two people would be getting their hair done at one for every hour Alicia and her assistant were there). Based on what people told me, I estimated that at least 9 slots would be filled, while still waiting to hear back from 1 or 2 people who seemed likely to want theirs done, and I told her as much over the phone. Alicia was very helpful and accommodating during that whole process, even offering to help negotiate with my persistent mother-in-law who was bound and determined to get her make-up done. I really appreciated her flexibility. The weekend of, my wedding party helped draw out a schedule for people to get their hair done. Everything for the hair planning went very smoothly. Then, the night before the wedding, my grandmother backed out at the last second, deciding not to get her hair done after all, and one other person I had been waiting to hear back from finally responded, leaving us with two unfilled slots. Since every appointment time still had at least one person getting their hair done, I wasn't too worried, given my conversations with Alicia back in early 2017 when we discussed what would happen with unused slots. The day of the wedding, Alicia showed up right on time along with one other assistant. They set up in the hotel room that James and I were staying in, bright and early, and began working on the first set of people's hair. At that point, I told Alicia about my grandmother, and said that in total 8 of the original 10 slots were filled. Alicia went very quiet, and seemed conflicted about something-- she said "Oh, I see," and when I asked her what was wrong, she said, "No, it's fine. You worry about what you have to worry about-- you're the bride, you shouldn't be worrying about anything today." Still, that raised red flags for me because to my knowledge everything was exactly what we had discussed. I asked her again if something was wrong, and she said "I usually don't let people cancel at the last minute, because I don't want to pay to bring an assistant if the workload is something I can manage on my own. But it's fine." To my knowledge, at no point in the weeks leading up to the wedding -- not during the demo, nor during the logistics stage the week of-- did Alicia mention this policy to me. She was really nice about telling me that information the day of, but it did seem strange that the policy had never come up in conversation given what we had discussed about a possible situation in which not all the slots were filled. I do wish that had been made clearer in the beginning, because I would have gladly paid a smaller deposit in the beginning, or else would have told the wedding party as much so that I could get a more exact count. I think I liked my demo hair more than what I had for the wedding, but it still looked beautiful. I've attached photos below. I think, looking back on it, that I should have washed my hair early the morning of the wedding, because my hair would have been dry in time and that's what I had done for the demo. That would have made the curls easier to rejuvenate. I took advice from a friend that hair that has been washed recently is harder to style, but based on my experience I think it would have turned out fine and the curls would have been shinier and possibly required less hairspray. That was definitely outside of Alicia's control and not in any way her fault! Just thought I'd mention it in case any girls out there have my kind of hair. (By the way I really like the type of hairspray Alicia uses. It smells fruity and delicious!) All in all, I am very happy that I chose Alicia and that she chose me. There are a few things I would have done differently given the chance to do things again but I definitely would have chosen her every time!

I have worked in the hair and beauty industry with internationally known companies for many years now. So you can imagine my relief to have found Erin and Lauren. I was worried I would not find a stylist and technician who could live up to my expectations. Imagine my delight when I looked in the mirror at the finished product and it was perfect! They are professional yet engaging, they are attentive to what you want and work to make it a success. If you are looking for a flawless, breathtaking look, then I highly recommend The Artists Hair and Makeup.

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!!!!!!

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.

Not only is Sharleen an amazing makeup artist but she is also extremely educated on all of her makeup products. As someone who’s constantly dealing with rosacea I tend to be very cautious with the products I use on my face. Sharleen reassured me that all of her Younique products were all natural, plant based and great for all skin types, including those who deal with different skin conditions. With that being said I’m extremely happy I chose to have Sharleen do my makeup for my friends wedding day. The work she did was flawless and lasted all day and night (even through the heat,) without having a single reaction on my face! I would not hesitate to have her do my makeup again in the future. I highly recommend her!

Faryn and her team were WONDERFUL. They came to us which took a huge load of stress off the wedding party and were so flexible when people added services or changed their minds about what they wanted done. She gave me the most beautiful updo - totally unique and gorgeous. They were great and I'd absolutely recommend the team for hair and makeup for any wedding!

I was in Boston Massachusetts for a wedding and discovered the dress that I had brought was ripped. I quickly went to Lord and Taylor and Jennifer Tracy the stylist for Lord and Taylor took me under her wing to help me select a new dress. She brought many dresses for me to try on. Jennifer also coordinated shoes , jewelry, and a bag to go with my new dress. I was styled head to toe. She was very helpful, very patient and her professionalism in this situation was wonderful. Not only did I get a beautiful outfit to wear to the wedding, but when I left I told her that I would refer my friends to her. Thank you Jennifer for turning my crisis into a pleasant experience. She was wonderful.

    Calvina doesn't just "do" hair, she takes care of your hair. I have been going to her for 3 months (longer than I've ever stayed with any hair care professional) and she's gotten my hair to be healthier, stronger and longer! I love going to Calvina because she does an excellent job. She really cares and it shows...she answers questions, suggests products and takes time to explain how to care for your hair in between appointments.

    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.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
