I ran into Betsey through thumbtack as I had put an ad out for a makeup artist in/near Minneapolis who could do a smokey eye for me for my Senior Prom! She quickly contacted me through the website and I hired her on the spot - after reading such great reviews! Those reviews were not mistaken!! I met Betsey at a salon (which she sometimes works out of) and she took great care in making me look fantastic for the dance. I was very impressed with the service and her talent in creating an intricate, specific look. Overall, she did a great job and there is no doubt I will be contacting her again in the future for other events. Not to mention we also had great conversations during our session - we discovered both of our fathers are/were pilots - how cool!

Working with Karina was beyond amazing! She did an OUTSTANDING job on my hair and all of my bridesmaids and mother. Everyone was complimenting how beautiful my hair was throughout the night of my wedding. Karina is friendly and straightforward and has a great process to get things done. She was available to ask questions to and I enjoyed that she liked taking our ideas to turn into something of our own. Somehow my veil popped out of my hair after our ceremony but my hair was solid and didn't move! I was surprised! I would 100% have her as my hair stylist again for a special event! Thank you Karina for making my wedding a memorable one! Brittany Sibenaller

I couldn't say enough good things about Taylor's work. First off I am extremely picky about my makeup and before meeting with Taylor I didn't trust anyone to do my makeup. She has the ability to duplicate any elaborate Pinterest image I bring in and also produce the most stunning clean beauty look. Thiank you Taylor for making me feel beautiful every time I leave your chair! I can't wait for my scheduled bridal trial. 10/10

Lisa did my bridal makeup for my wedding and I felt the most beautiful I have ever felt on that day! She did a nice job of matching my makeup to be "me" and it was just right. I loved the airbrushing technique she used and my makeup stayed on all night. I would highly recommend her to all brides as she is incredibly personable, is passionate about her craft and cares about her customers!

      I have been a client of Nahla's for the longest time...can't believe I am just getting around to writing her a review now! She truly is amazing because she listens to your needs! She has helped me solve my acne problems by giving me customized facials and even better by recommending great products and self care tips. She even saved me when I went to another esthetician for a face wax who ended up burning my face! It was horrible - my skin was dry and peeling and looked horrendous! Nahla came to my rescue by giving me a hydrating facial and products to help with the burn. She ensured that I didn't have any permanent burn marks. Not only has Nahla given me awesome facials - with relaxing massages included, she shapes my eyebrows perfectly, cuts my hair and gives me a brazilian blow out. Talk about one stop shop! Love your work so much that even though I moved away, I save all my beauty needs for when I am in town and make sure to get in to see Nahla!

          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.

          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.

          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.
          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
