I first met Winstead in July or August 2013 when I walked into a salon in need of some hair attention. While Winstead was working he had a video playing at his work station that showed him doing professional makeup, photo shoots and hair. I was impressed by how professional the video was and remembered feeling so blessed that I lucked into being in the chair of this "well kept secret". He did a fantastic job on my hair. Fast forward to mid October, 2014. My wedding was scheduled for Oct 25th and I had been functioning under the incorrect assumption that my daughters would help me with my hair and makeup. They finally convinced me that this event demanded the attention of a professional. I got a hold of Winstead and asked if there was any chance that he could find time to do my hair and makeup on the morning of my wedding? He was very accomodating and came to my hotel room at 7:15am with a mobile hair and makeup setup. He immediately turned on very soothing music to help me relax and less than 90 minutes later I looked absolutely incredible!! I highly recommend Winstead for ANY hair, makeup, photography or videography needs. He is absolutely amazing and northern Virginia is so lucky to have a professional of this quality!! I would not hesitate to call him again.

Jen/JMDesinz was awesome. We had a great time at my trial and then the day of my court house wedding. She listened to what I wanted and we worked together to make it right. She encouraged me to keep my natural curl (which I initially wanted) and actually styled my curly hair. Some of you curly girls know, this is no easy feat. (I've had my hair done multiple times, asking to use my natural curl and every time they straightened my hair and then curled it.) Jen was amazing. We ended up doing a smooth, sleek style due to my now husband's preference and my vision. She uses air brush make-up which I had never tried before. I really liked it. I learned a lot from her about makeup and styling. Her schedule worked so well with mine and she was very easy to get in touch with and swap ideas. Having her over felt like having a friend over who happened to be an excellent, experienced hair and make-up artist. I highly recommend Jen/JMDesignz and will hire her again and again! (Sorry photos are not close up, but there are a couple angles of the hair style.)

Priscilla and her hair assistant did such an amazing job for my big day. From the get-go, between communicating quickly and efficiently to setting up the trial on very short notice as my first one did not go very well, Priscilla was amazing. She not only listened to exactly what I wanted, she wasn't afraid to tell me what would look best. And I'm so glad that I listened. The trial went amazing, and she was able to transform that same look on my big day. I felt absolutely beautiful. She also did my maid of honor or come out as well as my mother's make up. She even made room for an ad The trial went amazing, and she was able to transform that same look on my big day. I felt absolutely beautiful. She also did my maid of honor or come out as well as my mother's make up. She even made room for a last minute add on. We all loved how quickly and efficiently she moved, as well as her hair assistant who was amazing as well. We even were finished early and able to enjoy some champagne and relax. Her hair assistant also gave me the exact look I was going for. I would truly recommend Priscilla for any event. Her work is absolutely amazing!

Fran did an amazing job! She was professional from the very start and went above and beyond to find someone to style my hair as well. The day before the event the hair stylist had a family emergency and had to back out but Fran kept me updated and tried to find someone else for me. When she could not find anyone she did my hair herself since I just wanted something simple. I was so happy with the results and everyone at the party could not believe how beautiful I looked. I was receiving complements all night long. I will definitely use her again and highly recommend her.

Esha's makeup for all the girls was outstanding. Everyone received airbrushed makeup and false eyelashes that looked flawless and natural. I had an afternoon ceremony and nighttime reception and the makeup lasted all day and night. I was on a tight budget and Esha worked with me, and I feel like got great value for our money. Esha's sister-in-law, Harmesh, did hair styling for some of the girls (I hired a second hair stylist because I had a large bridal party). At first I was nervous about the way the girls hair would turn out - I did 2 hair trials with Harmesh and she just wasn't seeing my vision. She used a hair crimper for volume and way too much hair spray, I just wasn't happy with the trials. But I was so impressed with Harmesh the day of the wedding. She did an amazing job, all the girls hair looked wonderful. No one's hair looked too stiff or crimped. Harmesh was scheduled to style 5 girls, but there was a time crunch at the end and she did a 6th girls hair, no questions asked or hesitation. I would recommend GlamNGlow Makeup for anyone who is on a budget but still looking for great value. I think its important to be direct about the look you want (and don't want), and Esha and Harmesh will work very hard to get it right. Thank you for being so flexible, professional and for doing a wonderful job!

I hired this company for hair and make-up for my wedding. They arrived on time (if not early :-) ) and got right to work. Both the hair and make-up artists were able to understand my bridesmaids and my visions and ensure that we looked our best. They accommodated all of my requests and did so with a smile. I would fully recommend this company and plan to use them again in the future for other events.

Lina is amazing!! She is super responsive and much better at keeping up with things than I was! I am not one to normally wear makeup so she was a huge help to me in figuring out what would look best for me on my wedding day, and I couldn't be happier with the results. All of my bridesmaids looked wonderful as well. She is also fantastic with hair! She did my hair and makeup for a Christmas party and it was amazing! I highly recommend Lina for top notch service and a perfect look for your special day!!

Jasmine was wonderful to work with! She did an amazing job on my blonde highlights and cut my husband’s hair also. We’ve been confined to our home as I just had a newborn. She made it super easy and I would suggest her to everyone. I’m looking forward to finally having a local hair stylist.

I've known shadeah since high school. I knew she was gonna develop into a stylist because she she'd always come to school withmany hairstyles. Ppl would ask who did her hair and she would say me. Ever since then I knew hair was her life! She does it ALL! Locks, weave, wigs, lashes, eyebrows and natural.But she would prefer natural hair. She gives a lot of advice. Especially for ppl who's not familiar with hair. Such as myself. I always ask her about a certain hairstyle and if it fits me. And she'll give her honest opinion. I would refer her to anybody. Men women and children and even infants lol. I'm always satisfied with her work. Always :)

For the last 33yrs. I have been blessed to have met my one and only beautician. We went from circles to stars, short to long, rods to waves, curly to straight, up dos to spiral curls and from perms to all natural hair. She's not only my beautician, my friend, my sister in Christ, my role model. She's my mentor. My Queen of Hair.

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.

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.

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.
