Let me start off by saying that I myself am a hair stylist & make up artist who works with bridal clients so I am very picky when selecting an onsite hair/stylist & makeup artist, hence my detailed review... I selected Vesta because she responded quickly & provided the information I requested without my having to ask for additional information. When corresponding with her via email & phone she responded in a timely manner and she was extremely professional & friendly. She also provided prices that were within the bridal party's budget. Vesta was booked to provide hair styling services to 3 bridesmaids & 1 mother of the bride. She arrived on time was well prepared, personable, professional. Everyone looked great & for the most part all hair styles stood the test of time. She was able to style a variety of hair textures, which we needed because we joked that the bridal party was the United Nations! She also provided full & partial up-do's & a lasting voluminous blowout on a bob. Of the 4 who received services only one bridesmaids curls began to fall before the actual wedding ceremony. I think the falling curls were due in part to the need for more hair spray and/or tighter curling and the fact that the bridesmaid should have picked another hair style given how long her her hair was. Either way, we were able to touch things up with a curling iron and the hair style was restored back to it's original glory. Overall Vesta was awesome to work with & clients will be very pleased with her professionalism & artistry. Thanks for being so flexible and wonderful Vesta!

Antonina did my hair and makeup for a special event and I have never felt as beautiful as I did that day. I told her exactly what I wanted and she gave it to me! It was so easy! She was quick but careful and she did an amazing job. She is so easy going and she was open to all of my preferences. She did not push me toward a look I did not want which I really appreciated. She definitely made sure I was happy with the end result. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a professional hair and makeup artist with a ton of talent and a sweet personality. She will transform you!

Aleetha is truly fabulous! I found her on thumbtack for my wedding. She did my hair, the hair of 6 bridesmaids, MOB and my MIL. My sister ended up loving her hair and hired her for her wedding as well! Both times she did an excellent job and we all received tons of compliments on our hair. She is friendly, fun, and very professional. I highly recommend her. You won't regret it!!

Finding an artist who is both a skilled hair stylist as well as a talented make-up artist is hard to find. Remi is that person all rolled into one! She worked on our commercial shoot and created one look after another that was perfect for our needs. She's a delight to have on set, easy going, very professional and well mannered. I highly recommend her!

I hired Jazmene to do my hair and makeup for my event, she came on time and was friendly. She did an amazing job at my make up and hair ( I did an updo). She was very accommodating as she listened to my input and made necessary adjustments to make me happy and comfortable with my look. My hair and makeup lasted all day! She also gave me a small kit for touch up which I barely used as my makeup lasted all day. I would definitely hire Jazmene again and strongly recommend her to people I know. She did professional job with reasonable prices.

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!

Dorothy was great!! I hired her to do hair and makeup for my wedding. During our makeup and hair trial, she was attentive, listening to what I wanted while giving me great advice (I don’t wear makeup period). I shared my opinions and feedback leading up to the day of (email and texts), and she nailed it! My hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted and PERFECT on my wedding day. She even traveled with me to the venue so she could pin my veil and floral hair comb into my hair and add finishing touches before First Look. Thank you so much, Dorothy!!

I have been having my hair styled by Ms. Mihart for the last 30 years. Her warm, friendly personal manner and notable skills as a hair stylist are enough for me to now travel in from New Jersey where I currently live, just to have her cut my hair. I always receive compliments from friends and colleagues after getting my cut as Ms. Mihart really knows her craft and seems to always get it right. She is by far and away the best hair stylist I have ever used. I recommend her without reservation.

Elmira is hands down the best hair stylist I have ever had! I've been using her for four years now and am anxiously awaiting for her to do my hair when the time comes I get married because she is just so talented with everything from a haircut to an updo to just a funky ponytail. Elmira is truly an artist. You will not be disappointed to use her for prom, wedding, or even just a nice blowout. This girl knows what she's doing and she's super sweet and fun on top of it all. Absolutely love her and the many beautiful amazing styles she has done for me. I can't go out to an event without getting a thousand compliments because of how beautiful she makes me look. So basically if you want to look perfectly flawless, use Elmira.

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 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.

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 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.
