I hired Vesta to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. I'm very pleased with the experience and would definitely recommend her. She listened to what I wanted and gave me lovely hair/makeup. But more than that she was just a lovely person to work with. She was easy to talk to and put me at ease. Communications were great; I sent her photos of hair/makeup I liked and we talked over that. A few weeks before the wedding we did a trial run at her gorgeous apartment. The trial run lasted a good four hours - Vesta didn't rush it at any point, even trying out two different "up-do" hairstyles on me until we were happy. She listened to what I wanted and responded. On the wedding day itself I was running a little late and was stressed out but Vesta's calming personality helped ease me a little. She again did great hair and makeup (I still had all my eye makeup on largely intact the next morning - I know it's bad that I didn't take it off, but it shows it was long lasting!). She also helped secure my headpiece. Both on the day and at the trial she also took nice photos that she shared with me. She's 100% competent as a hair/makeup artist but she also adds that little extra in that she's calming, makes you feel relaxed, and says very sweet things. Recommended.

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 could not wait to review Ochanya. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding reshoot. I couldn't have been happier with her work. She did just as I wanted and checked off every detail I requested. I am so in love with the look. She gave me a flawless makeup application that lasted for hours. I was so obsessed with the look that I did not want to wash off at the end of the night. Not only is she such a talented makeup artist and hairstylist, she is such a sweet person. You can immediately feel comfortable talking to her about anything. I highly recommend her to anyone. I cannot wait to work with her in the future. I found my go to artist for sure!!

Aleetha and her crew are an absolute delight to work with. Each of them are extremely talented and know their craft very well. They are super punctual, courteous and listen to the requests of those they're working on. I hired Aleetha for my bridal makeup and hair as well as for 4 of my bridesmaids. Everyone of the girls looked gorgeous and my bridal pictures came out great with the look they gave me. The cherry on top was that my hair and makeup lasted all night even with tons of dancing and jumping around! Aleetha makes you completely comfortable when shes working with you. From the first meeting with her it feels like you'd have known her for years! I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for a makeup and hair artist and will prbably use her again in the future! Thank you so much Aleetha for all that you did! I truly enjoyed working and spending time with you. Keep up the good work girl! :-)

Remi is a true artist! She has been doing my hair & makeup for several years, always to perfection. She has a vision & makes it happen, or she hears my vision & manifests it. I always feel my most beautiful when she works her magic on me! She's timely, friendly and professional. I would recommend her over and over again to anyone who needs a polished look for ANY occasion. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world, and bringing out the best (look) in me!

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."

SANDRA is absolutely wonderful!!! She is always respectful, professional, and extremely patient. First time that Sandra did my makeup was for my bridal shower then for bachelorette party. Then, on Friday 7/18/14 worked the whole day on my bridesmaid, maid of honor, my mother, other family members, and friends. Lastly, my wedding makeup was flawless, exactly what I wanted, and most importantly it lasted the whole entire time. I removed it at 4am and it still looked flawless. Her products worked well with my sensitive skin, she has a range of options, and even provides a little bag with extra things if needed. In addition, she works with your budget. I would recommend Sandra for weddings or any other event or even just a day that you want to feel extra fabulous. I LOVE her work!!!!! She is truly talented.

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.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
