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

Sarah was very well-organized, quick to respond, and very accommodating (even to my mom and I who are sensitive about eye makeup since my mom had a traumatic eye injury which I witnessed). For my wedding we needed hair and makeup: makeup for 4 (1 bride, 2 bridesmaids, and 1 mom) And hair for 5 (1 bride, 2 bridesmaids, and 2 moms) Sarah arranged a trial with her hair partner and both were accommodating and fantastic balancing the right amount of listening to my requests and drawing upon their knowledge and skills! They also were willing to come early to the venue and to bring breakfast for my bridal party. Ever

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.

I had reached out to Katya prior to hiring her to see if she had experience working on dark skinned clientele. She confirmed that she had, and sent me several examples of her work. I was so happy that I decided to go with Katya! She is a wonderful makeup artist who not only arrived at my home on time, but was fully prepared to execute the look I wanted. She made sure I was happy with my look every step of the way and offered to fix anything I was not satisfied with. I received so many compliments throughout the night and I felt amazing! Best part, my makeup lasted all night! I would definitely hire Katya again for another event, and hopefully my own wedding! Thanks again Katya!!

MJ Artistry was amazing! Melissa was very attentive to every detail and set me up with a a hair and makeup team right away! When I met Kim, (my hair stylist and my makeup artist) we hit it off right away. She is excellent at what she does and she listening to everything I wanted for my day. I met Andreia the day of my wedding and she handled each one of my girls with attentiveness and care. She did each of their makeup just the way we agreed and I (and they) couldn't be happier! Both Kim and Andreia arrived when they said they would and set up promptly. I couldn't have asked for better woman helping to make my wedding extra beautiful! ♡

Kat was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, and extremely personable. She was one of the first makeup artists that I truly listened to me and executed my desired look down to a T. She spent an entire hour doing my makeup and making sure that it was perfect, and all for a great price. I highly recommend Kat, and I will be using her for all my upcoming events and makeup needs.

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.
