  7. #7 Melissa Tomfohrde

    (16 reviews)

    Katy R.

    Melissa not only made everyone look beautiful, she was very professional and easy to work with. She communicated every few months to follow up and keep in contact prior to the wedding date (we reserved about 7 months in advance). Anytime I emailed her I received a response within a day. On the day of the event she arrived early with everything ready to go. The only negative I could even say is she does not take credit cards - but that wasn't an issue for my daughter or wedding party because we let the girls know to bring cash and there was also a cash machine at our location so it didn't affect anything really. I have used Melissa three times now and would hire again. After the event, we received such a sweet Thank you note from Melissa. Very professional, polite and relaxed.

    JoAnn did an amazing job with hair and makeup for myself and two others on my wedding day. She was very attentive and accommodating to all of our requests, creating the exact look I wanted, and my hair and makeup looked flawless and wonderful the entire day. I highly recommend JoAnn for your wedding day or any occasion!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Makeup by Sara Wilhelm

(25 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I absolutely love being a makeup artist for many reasons. First, it is my dream job. I love the creative freedom that makeup gives me. I've always been an artistic person so being able to "paint" on people's faces to create a certain look, really feeds my creative drive. Secondly, I love being able to make people (especially my brides) look and feel their best, regardless of how much makeup I actually put on them. I get a lot of clients who don't wear a lot of makeup so being able to enhance their naturally beauty is a great feeling for them and myself. And lastly, I love the fact that I get to meet such great people along the way! Whether I'm travelling to do a large wedding or photo shoot, it is such a rewarding experience to see new places and work with all walks of life! I truly can't see myself doing anything better for a career.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Being able to own my own makeup business has literally been a dream come true. The fact that I can be my own boss, set my own rates, and set my own hours is something that I've aimed for ever since I had completed makeup school 4 and a half years ago. My mother owns her own business as a professional accountant and seeing her run her business growing up really assured me that it would be possible to have my own one day. It would just take patience, professionalism, and practice at your skill. I strive to be the best at what I do. I'm constantly keeping up with new products, trends, and learning new makeup tricks. And with more hands-on experience comes more knowledge. Of course, my business is still growing, and every year I take on more and more clients and jobs. One day, I hope to grow my business to the point of not having to work any other jobs and be able to have it be my full-time career. Good news is, I am definitely on my way there!
