Kelsey was my make-up artist for a series of short films that I acted in. She is a very talented artist and I am always impressed with the work she has done for me as a make-up artist, as well as with photographs of her work I have seen of others' makeup & hair. Kelsey is very professional and her personable & relaxed demeanor always puts me at ease. I look forward to having her do my hair soon!

Very first time getting my makeup done and I can honestly say I love it!! My makeup artist Meagan was very professional and easy to talk to. She made me feel very comfortable and informed me about the products she uses. I gave her an idea of what I wanted and she did exactly that! I definitely recommend her to everyone! I received so many wonderful compliments on my makeup. She's awesome and I will be returning! Thanks!

My face looked flawless! Stephanie is a wonderful makeup artist, who is understanding, kind, and professional. She worked with me to find the perfect look. She listens to want YOU want and is eager to help create the look you want. I was excited to give Stephanie carte blanche, and she did not disappoint! I especially loved the false eyelashes. She has a wonderful eye for color. I felt at ease knowing my face was in the hands of Stephanie. When she finished with me I felt so beautiful and everyone loved my flawless makeup. It was natural but gorgeous. I greatly recommend her services. I felt flawless, fabulous and most importantly, comfortable wearing it! Linda

Make-up from Tia Regular is flawless.This makeup artist from Detroit will have you right and tight for whatever event your going to.Using her own makeup line dollfacer cosmetics, she has diversity to create a face.Being one of her clients is amazing.My first experience with the lovely lady was for the then sold out Between the Sheets concert at Joe Louis Arena,starring R&b singers Trey Songz and Chris Brown.I was giving a look that made my feel beautiful and confident.My look insisted of contouring of the cheekbones for a slimming face effect,a mocha sparkling Smokey eye.Also upper and bottom lashes with a pink lip for a pop of color.Not only was I ready for the concert,I was ready as if I had backstage passes for a meet and greet.In my opinion Tia gives inspiration for women to uplift themselves as a person,not only with her insight on life,but with her makeup talent.

I had Larissa and one of her team members come out and do our makeup for my wedding. Through thumbtack they offered a free hair and makeup trial and it turned out beautiful! On the day of my wedding both girls were on time and very professional. I had asked to have my makeup done the same as my trial and unfortunately due to lack of sleep it didn't quite look as good ( smokey eyes on a puffy tired face lol) and Larissa was great about re applying my eye makeup. Great experience I would highly recommend them!

Love Viva La Glam!! My daughter‘s makeup was amazing and Noelle saved us with a last minute booking! She was running late with her hair (done somewhere else that I wouldn’t really recommend) and the makeup artist we had booked couldn’t do later. Noelle fit us in between appts, helped touch up her hair, and even let my daughter change there!! Will be booking hair and makeup for prom for sure next year!! “

I have come to Larrissa several times over the past few years to do several things. She has cut and colored my hair, given makeup lessons and several other things on multiple occasions. She is very professional and kind. She gives 110% to her client, and goes above and beyond to make you happy. She is my number 1 hair stylist, and makeup artist. I recommend her above all others!!!!

Ranine was patient with my pickiness. She is a great artist in what she does. I didn't expect my hair to turn out good because I don't normally have a good experience going to Salons, but Ranines personality comforted me. I love my new hair color. Great job. :)

I've had the opportunity to have Cher Jay do a makeup application on me. I've been doing makeup on myself as long as I can remember and have had other people apply makeup on me but my experience with Cher Jay was one of a kind. His techniques had me curious as to how he did it. My overall look was a soft, warm and natural look but it brought out specific features on me that I've never paid much attention to. I loved my eyebrows! He softened up the arch of them with a rounder appearance and it really made a difference. My foundation looked flawless and the contouring was complimentary to highlighting my cheekbones and jawline. I haven't felt this pretty in a long time! He was very professional, pausing here and there to make sure I was doing good and providing me sneak peeks at what he was doing. I felt that he cared about my opinions even though I didn't have any since I loved everything he was doing! He is very thorough, very clean (constantly sanitizing his equipment and his hands), and the appointment stayed on track. I couldn't be more happy and would recommend him to anyone who's looking for to feel beautiful from the inside out.

She was really calm and patient, she was very careful with my hair and makeup. The makeup she did for me was simple, and it looked really good (usually I just clomp on makeup.) Always asked if I liked it, works well from references, and overall a very good service.

Danielle did my makeup for a wedding I was attending this past summer and to say the least it was perfection!!!!! I am very picky and was very nervous (as I always am when someone does my makeup) but when I saw the finished look, I was blown away! She definitely met above and beyond my expectations. I had my makeup done just a year ago for my wedding as well as my bridal shower and other events by other makeup artists.... but nothing compares to her "magic hands". Her work is flawless and you are in good hands (no pun intended) if you choose her. You will without a doubt be 150% satisfied.😊

I have been getting my long, thick hair cut and styled by Rosie for almost 20 years. It's not easy to deal with thick hair. She has always done a great job! Up-dos, prom, weddings, and special occasion hair and makeup, she's does them all very well!

True Embellishment is such a fun experience! The studio is clean, neat, organized and FUN!! Mesha is such a talented makeup artist! She gave me the exact look I was going for, and also provided a fun experience. I needed a last minute appointment and she was able to accommodate me. She is professional and fun at the same time. I will definitely return to True Embellishment as I feel her skills are worth every $ spent!

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.
