Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good hairstylist?

First, pull up a list of nearby hairstylists on Thumbtack, and read their profiles to get an understanding of what they specialize in — hair coloring, cutting, extensions, wedding hairstyles, etc. Then, start searching for stylists who have high ratings and customer reviews. You should also spend some time looking at photos that showcase their work. That way, you can determine if a stylist has the experience and skills needed to achieve the look you want. 

When you’ve identified at least three hairstylists you like, ask them for a cost estimate and make sure they have the proper credentials.

How do you hire a hairstylist?

After you find a few hairstylists you’re interested in, you need to decide who to hire. To figure this out, ask yourself these questions when evaluating each candidate:

  • Does the hairstylist have mostly positive customer reviews and high ratings?
  • Is the hairstylist charging prices that are reasonable and within my budget?
  • Does this person specialize in my hair type and texture?
  • Can the hairstylist achieve the look I want?
  • Does the hairstylist have the proper training?
  • Can the hairstylist come to me (i.e., are they a mobile hairstylist?), or do I need to go to their place of business?

What does a hairstylist do?

Many hairstylists have the training and skills to do the following:

  • Shampoo and condition hair
  • Blow-dry hair
  • Cut and trim hair
  • Color, dye and bleach hair
  • Straighten, braid and curl hair
  • Install hair extensions and weaves

The best hairstylists can recommend styles and advise you on how to properly care for your hair type. Some may specialize in a certain treatment, or they may focus on hairstyles for events, such as a wedding.

How much do you tip hairstylists?

A good rule of thumb is to tip your hairstylist at least 20%. Of course, it’s OK to tip more or less than 20%.

If you decide to tip 20%, here’s a quick guide on how much to tip your hairstylist:

What should I do if my hairstylist messes up?

If you believe your hairstylist messed up, bring it to their attention. Talk to them about what you expected and why you’re not happy with the end result. Because many professionals rely on positive customer reviews and word of mouth to keep their business going, they’re often willing to make adjustments.

Reviews for Brooklyn hair stylists
Emre K.
Nida is an incredible hair stylist and for us a lifesaver! We needed someone last minute to do the hair for our recent photoshoot and Nida really came through for us. She was on time and very professional. She did an amazing job on the hair and our models looked great. I would totally recommend her to anyone!

Look no further! Nida is your go-to-girl! She arrived early (even earlier than myself!) and went right to work. She has a great personality. Bubbly, sweet and easy to talk to. She listens to your wants and knows what you need. If you take one look at my before, you’ll see she worked pure magic on me! Before my big day, I was a bit stressed finalizing all the to-dos and you can tell I hadn’t slept in a while! Yet, after she was done with me, that was all a thing of the past. Made me look radiant and feel like a new person. Very clean, super professional and an expert at her job. Besides doing my makeup and hair, she also took great pics, even helped with my dress, and made sure I was perfect after my dress was on. She wasn’t in a rush to leave nor did I ever feel rushed yet she did her thing in less than the expected time frame all because I was on a time crunch. She was simply amazing. Nida, thank you for making me so beautiful on my wedding day. It was a pleasure to have you as my stylist. I look forward to future events to book you again! I’m so happy to have found you! ❤️
