Where do I start? Vesta is an amazing make up/ hair stylist and person overall!!! She worked quickly and was sure that each person looked amazing. Vesta is truly a talented woman and I am so happy that I had her there on the most important day of my life. I never felt more beautiful in my life and it was all thanks to this woman. My husband was completely blown away when he saw my walk down the aisle. THANK YOU SO MUCH VESTA!!

We had the most amazing experience with Mary Ashanti! We had her as my daughters personal stylist (hair and make up) for her Junior Prom. She was not only professional but felt like family! The end result was amazing. Word at my daughters prom was that "she slayed it" all thanks to Mary!!! Definitely would be happy to have her again!!!

My makeup was done by Ochanya artistry (Sarah) and it was absolutely amazing. It was exactly what I asked for and more. Everyone loved my look and she was extremely professional and a pleasure to be around. She was so good, that my family booked her for a wedding, and they also loved their looks. I would certainly recommend her to everyone, she is an amazing makeup artist and a very experienced hair stylist.

I recently had a HUGE 30th birthday party in Time Square NYC! I hired Aleetha to do my hair and makeup. I was so nervous but, Aleetha took all that worry away by her cheerful personality! She explain the looked she was going to create for me and executed it flawlessly! She uses only top of the line products. She not only cared about getting done quickly but, she wanted to ensure that the hair and makeup was going to stay in place all day. Let me tell you...that is exactly what it did. I started my birthday bash in a formal dress at my dinner...then changed in to jeans in sneakers to play games at Dave and Busters and ended the night at a lounge my friend rented out. Not one hair was out of place, not one reapplication of lipstick! That is what you pay for when you get Aleetha! The quality of work is unmatched!

Angela was my hair/makeup artist for my wedding on 09/08/17. She was absolutely fabulous! I decided to have a trial run two weeks before the big day, and she captured the exact look I was wanting. My guests were in awe over the makeup and hair style she created. I will definitely reach out to her for any upcoming events!

Jazzmene was so sweet and flexible. Her makeup and hair also lasted from 2 p.m. until I took it down and off at 5:30 a.m. after dancing. She doesn't mind you sending her looks that you like. My foundation was also a perfect match and not too matte or too shiny.

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!

Dorothy did my makeup and hair on two occasions.The makeup lasted for whole evening without getting cakey. The Smokey eyes looked stunning. She specializes in making you look naturally beautiful which was a huge relief for me since I don't typically wear much makeup. Highly highly recommend Dorothy as a makeup artist to make you look glammed up.

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!

Lisa always goes above and beyond. She is a true artist. She listens to exactly what you want and gives feedback as well as advice. She always lets you know what'll look best and give you the healthiest most gorgeous outcome. My color comes out perfect every single time. Let me not forget to mention I am a natural blonde. Since I've went dark I've never went back. If you want the perfect color Lisa will exceed your expectations

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.
