I went to PonyExpressCustomHair in Albuquerque, to see Linda, as my hair is getting very thin on top. Lind explained to me I had Female Alopecia Areata. I had been distressed noticing the ‘see though hair’ on the top of my head, and it kept getting worse, very embarrassing for me. I am a woman employed in sales, and was becoming very self conscious about my hair loss, especially when at work I initially scheduled a consultation for a simple hair extension review, but after seeing my hair loss situation, Linda explained that simple hair extensions, were not really a solution for my hair loss problem. During my hair replacement review, Linda showed me samples of her hair replacements, making it so much easier for me to visualize what I needed for my hair. I found a hair system that was sheer and light, to fill out the hair on my crown area. Linda made me a top fill-in system, explaining why the best remy hair is needed for the realism I wanted, and I am very satisfied with her work. I have a beautiful finish now to my hair, shiny hair with a healthy fullness I can be proud of, and I feel younger. Linda’s office is private, and very low key and relaxing, no sales pitch or pressure, just concern for my hair loss problem and how to solve it. Linda has many portfolios of her work in her extensions salon, that gave me the ideas I needed to decide on what would work best for me. I really, really liked the portfolios & samples of Linda’s women’s hair replacement work. I wanted an experienced professional to help me, and Linda was professional but also very friendly and compassionate. As I reviewed the before and after photos in Linda’s portfolios (she has A LOT of portfolios)…I really was able to understand, what was involved and what I needed for my hair. My new hair is now shiny and full, just like I always wanted my hair to be. I have more confidence at my job. PonyExpressCustomHair is very professional, yet warm and comfortable, I enjoy going there. OH!! Linda’s coffee is great too! I will Absolutely be recommending Linda to my friends! Thanks Linda You're The Best!! Ageyv

Akira did an amazing job for my wedding day. We also had our hair professional cancel last minute and Akira was able to do my hair just the way I wanted it. She came with enough time to do everyone’s make up and the quality of makeup that she used was very good. The makeup came out perfect for pictures and lasted all night.

I hired Megan months ago for our wedding on Oct 10th. She was very pleasant, accommodating, patient, and overall great to work with the whole time. She did an OUTSTANDING job on my hair and makeup. Everyone complimented all day and I will definitely hire her again for other formal events. Would recommend to anyone.

    Natalie is super nice and professional. I went in because of hair thining and I hadn't cut my hair in years. She went over the issues and talked me through the steps she was taking. I wanted to cut it super short and she walked through what would look good on me. I love my hair cut. My hair is fuller and healthy and I'm constantly gettting compliments. I will continue to go to her anf recomd her to anyone else. She listens and helps you geel comfortable with decisions.

      I'm very pleased with how my hair looks after visiting Eduardo for a color, cut and style. He took the time to listen to what I wanted and personalized it just for me. Eduardo is very knowledgeable about hair and loves what he does. He is professional, friendly and honest and he made me feel at home. I will definitely return to his place again. Highly recommend Eduardo for his hair talents!

      About

      Hello. I've been in the business for six years now! Continuing education and loads of experience have provided me with a skill set and supply list that is insurmountable. My passion is beauty and the art of aesthetics. I provide both hair and makeup services, and I can't say I prefer one over the other because they are completely different mediums that coincide with each other beautifully. I can provide my services either at my private boutique, or I am open to travel. My goal as a stylist is to make your experience as a bride the day you've always dreamt of!

      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.
