        Anthony has always been so punctual and very passionate about his artistry. What has impressed me most, aside from his talent to paint a beautiful face, he is always very careful and treats every client like they are his only client!! As a hair stylist, I would team up with anthony any day as he is a very ambitious and talented artist.

          I’ve been going to Deja for my hair needs for about 7 years now. She is by far one of the best stylists that I have ever seen. My hair texture isn’t the easiest to work with (long and very thick), and Deja makes it look beautiful every single time. She is thorough, but also efficient, and doesn't keep me in the salon for more than an hour and a half. Even during my difficult transition from relaxed to natural, I always left with soft and manageable hair. I have seen Deja for many different services, including cut, color, style, sew-in, and various others. No matter what the "do", I always receive tons of compliments when I leave her salon. One of my favorite things about Deja is that she constantly creates hairstyles that are in alignment with my vision. I have gone to other stylists who imposed their ideas on me or simply failed to achieve the look that I was hoping for. I have never had this problem with Deja. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, capable, and knowledgeable stylist. You will not be disappointed.

          I was referred to Kelisha by April at April's Braids & Beads in Durham to do my 7 year old daughter's hair. My daughter is very tender-headed and I let her know before the appointment that she was and that she hadn't had her re-touch in a month or so. My daughter was nervous before getting in the chair and I knew what was about to happen. Kelisha started doing her hair and Malia began to cry. She cried throughout the process but Kelisha never got upset or had an attitude with my daughter. Although she wasn't able to keep the relaxer on long because my daughter said that she was burning, her hair still turned out nice. She didn't charge for the relaxer since it didn't take, which I thought was really great. I appreciate hair stylist that say that they do kids' hair, actually handle a child crying and can be patient and understanding. It does take patience and I commend Kelisha for having that patience with my daughter. Her hair turned out lovely and Malia loved it and couldn't stop smiling. She didn't want to move her head because she was too afraid of the curls falling...which was hilarious to me. The salon was small and quiet and kid friendly and we definitely look forward to going back.

            Tawnya has been my hair stylist for approximately 2 years. Her salon is spa-like and professional. She does not overbook and pampers you individually. She has performed many services on my hair, and I have always been pleased with the results. If your hair and time are precious to you, Tawnya is the perfect stylist.

            OMG I am not going to anyone else! I live in Miami and found out about Grace through a friend in NC. My friends hair always looks amazing and when I found out that her stylist (Grace) traveled, I had to call her up! She did an AMAZING job and her prices were reasonable...not to mention, her work is superior to anyone that I have let touch my head here. She def has a loyal customer out of me!

            Q & A

            Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

            How do I find a personal stylist?

            To find a fashion consultant, start by browsing portfolios online. Styling is a visual art, so finding a fashion consultant who fits the style you desire is key. Great personal stylists aren’t confined to one style, but if you’re seeking a hipper, fashion-forward vibe, you’d do well to find someone with a modern portfolio, while a fashion consultant with a consistently refined style could be a better fit if you’d prefer a more conservative look. Reading reviews is also helpful for learning more about the fashion consultant. Research their training, background and years of experience. After reviewing websites and Instagram accounts, meet with the stylist in person to learn how well they fit your personality; some fashion consultants offer a free phone consultation prior to hiring. Before hiring, make sure you clearly understand their terms of service and payment.

            What do image consultants do?

            Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion, such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion either using either what the client owns or taking a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, your lifestyle, and what you hope to present to the world, and will then determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit one area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve. Personal shopping is another service that image consultants provide. After an image assessment, they can either shop with you or shop on your behalf to find you key pieces you need.

            What is a fashion consultant?

            A fashion consultant is a paid professional who will advise you on what to wear and how to wear it to fit your desired lifestyle or career goals. A fashion consultant can provide many services including personal shopping, closet audits, beauty consultations, style consultations and ongoing seasonal services. A fashion consultant often has a design or fashion background (although this is not required) and an innate sense of style. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the colors, cuts and designs we think suit us. A fashion consultant comes in with fresh eyes and provides constructive feedback to guide your style choices.

            During your initial meeting, your fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and learn what you hope to achieve. They’ll identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you how to wear items together. Many consultants create style lookbooks for their clients explaining things like exactly which shoes to wear with what pants and how to accessorize each look. Fashion consultants are a great option for people who are updating their style due to age, career changes or body changes, or who are just ready for a new look and feel. Most fashion consultants charge by the hour, with some offering packages and others working from a retainer.

            What is a personal shopper?

            Personal shoppers take the pain out of having good fashion. Personal shoppers are paid professionals who work with women, men or children who need style assistance. If you are stuck in a fashion rut, are unsure how to dress in a way that flatters your body, need to revamp your image, or want a more professional career look, personal shoppers can help. Personal shoppers identify the look their client wants to achieve and purchase the necessary clothing and accessories to achieve it. The process often begins with an initial consultation with the client to understand their style goals. This consultation may include a closet “audit,” an assessment of the client’s current wardrobe to see what items can be eliminated and what must be purchased to achieve the desired style.

            The client and the personal shopper can shop together, selecting items as a team. The personal shopper may also shop on behalf of the client, then bring all items to the client for a final decision. A third option is pre-shopping, where the personal shopper reaches the store(s) ahead of the client and sets aside clothing for the client to try on, expediting the whole process — a win for anyone who hates spending time in the mall. Personal shoppers can also be hired for one-time events such as weddings, vacations or birthdays. You can also enlist a personal shopper to do your gift shopping for you. Overall, a personal shopper is an investment in making good style choices.

            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.
            Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
