Aline did a fabulous job with hair and makeup that lasted in humid weather and was wonderful for photos! She is great at personalizing the experience. She even took 5 minutes to help curl my 3-year old niece's hair when my niece saw that I was getting my hair curled (and was fascinated by the possibility). Thanks, Aline!

Jatoia did my hair, makeup and henna and her husband AJ did my photography for my Indian engagement party. They are such a power couple! They did such an amazing job and everyone was so impressed by their patience and commitment to their crafts. Would highly recommend them.

Very professional lady and very nice lady. She made my event very special. I even had "butterflies" before event. She put on some music to help calm my nerves. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has a special event come up. She also arranged for my hair to be done at the same location as my makeup. Very much appreciate all of the hard work and details that Theresa provided for my event. If I ever have another event, I would call Theresa again. Highly recommended. Thank you Theresa.

Lelah is very professional. Both my daughter and I go to her. My hair is very frizzy and hard for me to manage myself but Lelah is a miracle worker. I recommend her to everyone I know. I love that she's always gets me end and out. Even when I'm getting my highlights and low lights I'm still not in there long at all and my hair always turns out perfect

    She is super friendly, professional and knows what she is doing. The only person I would trust with my hair. My sister is having her airbrush makeup done by Juli for her wedding. Great work!

    Jen was my hair and makeup artist for my October 2014 wedding. I wanted vintage and she totally delivered. She was at my home bright and early at 6am on the morning of the wedding. I was absolutely in love with my total wedding day look that she created and it looks amazing in the pictures, very glamorous, but not unnatural. And my makeup lasted until the party ended at nearly midnight that night, which was incredible! She is also a really cool and laid back person. She responds to emails quickly which is always appreciated when you are planning a wedding. I would definitely hire her again if I had to do it all over!

    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.
