Vesta was absolutely wonderful- professional, friendly, and a pro at hair and makeup. She did my hair and makeup for an event and completely listened to what I wanted. I was apprehensive about getting my hair and makeup done as I have had bad experiences (at salons) in the past, but she put me at ease and the results were awesome. She truly understood when I asked for a natural makeup look, and did everything in steps with my input the whole time. I will definitely use her services again if I ever need them. Vesta was also very flexible and accommodating with regards to the date/ time scheduled.

After my other makeup and hair stylist had to cancel two weeks before my wedding, I was lucky enough to find that Mallory was available. We did a consult a week before and walked through what I was looking for. Not only was she able to do my hair and makeup, she did makeup and hair for 3 bridesmaids and my mother-in-law - who all wanted different styles and she was able to accommodate everyone. My makeup stayed in place through tears during the vows all the way to the end of the night. And my hair still has curls the next morning! She was professional and fun and I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Having Cashmeir as your makeup artist is not just a service, it is an experience. Personable, creative, meticulous and a master she takes makeup artistry to a different level. She has the ability of accenting beauty without taking away from the natural beauty of her client. She made me feel and look like a queen. Truly an unforgettable experience.

So happy with Angela's work. I sent her 2 pics of what I was looking for for my engagement shoot and she knew exactly what to do. We were rushed the day of our event, but she did hair and makeup in an hour for me. So happy with the results! Would definitely recommend her to family and friends!

Mahira was absolutely awesome! I have terrible dark circles under my eyes and concealer doesn’t typically do the trick. Mahira was able to color correct my dark circles and really brighten up my face. The concealer also didn’t crease at all, and normally I have that problem. Mahira’s contouring skills helped to thin out my nose, something I’m always self conscious about in photos. She used quality products that didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. And let’s not forget the amazing work she did with my eye makeup - it was gorgeous!! Overall, beautiful work, and great conversation. Will definitely be calling her again soon!

Danielle is extremely knowledgeable and affordable. Unlike most hair stylists, she suggests only what she thinks is best for the client's hair health, not what will make her the most money. I felt at home while she was doing my hair. The way she washes hair is so relaxing. She constantly asks if what she is doing is comfortable, or if the braiding is too tight (which it rarely was). She listened to what I wanted and actually did it. I would 200% recommend her, especially to women who care about the health of their hair. Even more importantly, her and her family care about my safety. After she finished with my hair, her fiance gave me a ride to the train station, even waiting with me until we realized I had missed the train, and then took me to another train station. I can't express how happy I am with what they have done for my confidence! And they fed me, so you can't beat that!

Jules is a great hair stylist. She has been coming to my home and doing my hair (cut and color) and my boyfriend's hair since last year - and previously she did our hair at a salon. She listens to what I want but also isn't afraid to let me know if something won't work with my hair type or if she has other ideas. I get compliments on my hair all the time. Highly recommended!

I have never felt more beautiful than I did after having my makeup done by Plush! I had my hair done by someone else earlier in the day, and when I told the artists with Plush that I didn't like it, they offered to fix it for me. I can't say enough good things! They are extremely talented and also so sweet! I highly recommend Plush for makeup and hair!

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.
