Mary is amazing! She's very professional and a passionate makeup artist/hair stylist. My experience I had was during the night of my sister's bachelorette party. I was so pleased with the way Mary styled my hair and makeup she also did a wonderful job on my sister and my mom! She made our night special. A few weeks later I had Mary lighten my hair for the summer and she also cut layers. Now my hair is nice and healthy and I can't thank her enough! We love her positive attitude and her artistic ability so much that my sister booked her for the wedding! I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to look fabulous!

Sharon is an amazing makeup artist. She did my makeup for my undergraduate and graduate graduations and it was fantastic both times. She does an amazing job of giving you a naturally beautiful look as opposed to an overdone look. I have had makeup done by MAC artists twice and Sharon does a better job by far. The photo speaks for itself. I will not hesitate to reach out to Sharon again the next time I need to have my makeup done for a special occasion.

I was nervous to work with a stylist that I have never met but Ochanya easily put my nerves to ease. Before our session she sent a detail questionnaire to help her bring the correct supplies to our session. What a great experience!! Ochanya was friendly, professional and easy to work with. I am very green in the realm of makeup and hair and Ochanya took the time to evaluate my needs and ensure that the desired look was achievable. We had a lovely conversation during her service that I didn’t even notice the time flying by. She made sure I was ready for my event. She suggested hair and make up styles that would pair well with my dress. Thank you Ochanya! Hope we meet again!!

I loved working with Mallory! On top of being very punctual, her collection of makeup caters to a lot of different skin tones (having never seen a picture of me, I'm really impressed at how serious she is about the project.) Mallory is very professional, giving me options and advice, and she also made it a very fun experience for me. I've gotten a lot of conpliments on my hair and makeup, all because of her. Now, I'm hoping for more events to go to in the future just so I can hire Mallory again! I love her! Thank you so much! :D

Cashmeir took me on very last minute and arrived well before the appointment. She was very attentive, professional and friendly! She was very flexible with changing plans, and really quite quick! The makeup and hair that she did for us stayed for over 15 hours without needing any touch-up! Thanks, Cashmeir!

Mahira is a phenomenal makeup artist. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is seeking a professional for any occasion. She will take all the time needed to make you look perfect, I left out of her studio feeling the most confident I have ever been in my life. I felt like a walking Goddess. And because she uses high quality makeup... I was able to be a Goddess for the entire night; I even went to sleep and woke up without a smudge!!! I would definitely use her services again."

I needed someone to do my hair and makeup for a 10:30am wedding. She came on the dot 6:45 am. She had everything she needed for the task. I never needed to retouch anything. 11pm passed and the makeup never smudged.it looks as beautiful as the time she finished doing my makeup. Perfect for my wedding. Everybody kept asking me who did my makeup. Everybody compmimented how beautiful I looked on my special day. She doesnt do just simple weddinf makeup. She does function too. I already sweat a lot ywt my makeup stayed the same. You wont regret hiring her.

Shirley did an amazing job with my hair and makeup. She was on time and brought all of the tools she would need to transform me into a beauty. I had sent her pictures of hair and makeup and she did exactly what I wanted. I looked beautiful for my wedding reception and I received a lot of compliments. She took her time and I felt like I was in heaven being so pampered! I highly recommend Shirly and will use her again. I shopped around and her price was very reasonable.

So grateful to Corey for saving the day! My regular makeup artist had a family emergency the day of my red carpet event. I put out an early morning SOS, but wasn't hopeful I would be able to find someone on such short notice. Corey responded promptly, chatted with me and offered to come out to me early that afternoon. She showed up on time, set up quickly and I immediately felt at ease. Corey works very quickly and couldn't have been nicer; my makeup looked so pretty, my friend (who NEVER wears makeup) asked her to do "a little something" to her face too! Thanks again Corey. You stepped in to prevent my little disaster and earned yourself a new customer.

All of the above. I'm not a woman who wears makeup and was totally against wearing makeup for my wedding, thank God my niece knew Renelle. Not only was she reasonably priced but, she was willing to do a trial on me. Renelle made me look like a princess on my wedding day and if and when I decide to wear makeup again, Renelle is the ONLY PERSON I would contact Thank you so much

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.

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.

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.
