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!

I was looking for a hair and makeup artist for a work gala last month. I really wanted to sport a red carpet look. From the get go, Carolina was prompt at responding to my queries and eager to work with me. She assured me she could accommodate the look I was going for, and definitely delivered. The day of the event, she met me at my sister's house where I was getting ready, and was super professional and helpful even though I was running late. She never rushed me or herself, and talked me through the process as she went along. My sisters and I had a lot of fun talking with her throughout the appointment as well. Once finished, she adjusted any little thing I asked for, and even left me with the little tube of lip gloss she used to reapply as needed throughout my evening. Such a fun and easygoing experience, and the results were out of this world! I am continuing to receive compliments on how I looked to this day! I would definitely recommend this company and use them again. Thanks Carolina!!

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!

Alicia was extremely professional but also affordable and very personable and it felt like my hair and makeup was being done by a friend that I have known for a long time. She makes everything extremely easy for the bride and bridal party as she came to my apartment in Massachusetts for the trial and later came to my parent's house in RI for my church wedding hair and makeup and then traveled to my house in RI the next day for my 2nd day ceremony/reception hair and makeup. She brought 3 other hair/makeup artists with her on the big day and everyone's hair and makeup came out stunning. Both days, I felt my hair and makeup was flawless. For the church wedding, I requested a more natural look and the next day a more glam look; each of which I was extremely pleased with. Not to mention Alicia and her team were able to do all of my bridesmaids hair and makeup flawlessy as well as my mom, grandmother, and mother-in-law. 2 of my bridesmaid have their own upcoming weddings and are extremely interested in using Alicia again. I would use her again in a heartbeat. Not only were her services extremely affordable, but she is able to do a wide variety of styles and ages and she is extremely flexible, professional, and friendly! Highly recommend!!!

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.

Amanda truly is talented when it comes to the world of makeup. I was going to a wedding and needed to look glamorous but also natural and Amanda hit it out of the park. Not only did she reassure me every step of the way what she was doing but made my makeup experience very enjoyable and stressful! Trust me, if you need a makeup artist who is professional, punctual, and TALENTED, look no further! Amanda, thanks for turning me into Cinderella and making me the belle of the Ball!

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.

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!

I found Jackie on Thumbtack and it was my first time using this website to find a vendor. Jackie was wonderful to work with – from coordinating my makeup trial to my wedding day timeline to making a payment, everything was a breeze. She did an incredible job and made my bridesmaids and I look so beautiful. We all had airbrush makeup done which turned out great and lasted throughout the entire day/night. Jackie is very personable and made me feel at ease throughout the entire morning. Jackie did an excellent job of getting all six of us ready on time. She even touched up a few of us before she left which was great. Thank you, Jackie!

Ani was great right from the begining. She arrived on time, actually a tad early which was even better since the party girls couldnt wait for her. She did an awesome job on each of the girls. Such a great makeup artist!

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.

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.

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.
