I hired Mary (and her awesome hairdresser friend Renee) to do my wedding makeup and hair along with the makeup of my maid of honor and the hair of all 5 of my bridesmaids. We had a fun hair and makeup trial a few months ago, where I had very minor changes to make the style more "me" for the wedding. On the day-of, the makeup was perfect-- Mary did not miss a single detail and the makeup stayed put throughout ceremony-crying, reception-sweating, and a messy cake-cutting. ;) My hair came out amazingly as well, I bought some hair extensions and hoped they would work, since they were a slightly different shade of red. Renee layered them into my real hair and it looked completely natural. Everyone looked like models after having their hair done and it stayed like that the entire time. Heck, my hair stayed perfect until I showered the next day! Seriously, these two are magical. The best part was that they were not stressed despite the time crunch, did everything completely professionally, and were also just the sweetest people to have doing your hair and makeup the morning of your wedding. I had SO many compliments all night. Thank you so much, ladies. I love you!

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!!

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!

Marija did my hair and makeup when I was in New York for an event. She and her sister were amazing to work with! Not only did Marija ask for pictures, but she listened to what look I wanted and created a look that was perfect! The quality of work was very high; my hair and makeup looked absolutely stunning and both lasted throughout a long evening! Both ladies have awesome personalities and I had a blast sitting in the chair and talking with them. I hope to be back in NY for another formal event, as I would love to work with them again!

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!

It goes beyond words describing my experience with Lugo Hair and Makeup. I described my style, preferences, and some ideas and she completely blew me out of the water with the outcome. I wouldn’t recommend anyone better than her. No matter what type of event you may need to glam up for!

I would give this artist 10 stars if I could! Laura was a joy to deal with from start to finish. I could not have hoped for a more pleasant interaction. She will go far and beyond to deliver amazing customer service; every question that I may have had were answered right away. She has turned this one-time customer into a lifetime client. She truly is the best in the business, and Laura comes with my highest recommendation!

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 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.
