Ochanya was such a pro! She was responsive to messages through Thumbtack as well as texts and calls. She was available on short notice and gave a really competitive price for the high calibre service she offered! She was punctual and organized both prior to and during the shoot and worked with my needs and expectations in a down to earth and warm way. She was personable and genuine and her skills as a makeup and hair stylist were outstanding, she knew exactly what look I was after and was able to take the lead in executing a sexy, glam look for the photo shoot as well as staying close by to do touch ups and look changes throughout the shoot. She has an attention to detail and is easy and fun to work with. Would definitely recommend!

I had an excellent experience with Tatiana and was very happy with the results. She did my hair and makeup for a family photo session. I liked that she was responsive, and she helped me achieve the natural but polished look I wanted. A bonus that she knows how to do Asian makeup very well. On top of that she was very pleasant and professional to work with, taking her time and making sure I was happy with the look. Thank you!

Sharon did my makeup for a head shot photo shoot. She was very professional and responsive before the shoot. On the day of she arrived early to set everything up. The look was natural and enhanced my best assets. She also did a great job covering up my blemishes. Sharon is not only a skilled makeup artist, but also a very sweet person. I would highly recommend her!

Mallory did my hair and make up for my Wedding. I had sent her photos of the hairstyle I wanted beforehand and as I was travelling to New York we didn't get to do a trial. She was amazing from start to finish. She knew exactly what I wanted and consulted with me throughout to check it was what I wanted. Plus she was lovely company to ease the nerves. The make up was the best I've had done and lasted all day and gave me so much confidence getting photos taken. . I would recommend her without hesitation. I have promised to send photos when I get them from the photographer. Thank you so much Mallory x

Remi is just wonderful! I loved the look she created, she was very helpful during the photo-shoot. She knows her job very well, and is very confident in her skill. We discussed the details of the make up and hair and she created the first look, and then we adjusted it a couple of times to get it exactly right . I enjoyed working with Remi. I am very happy with the outcome. Will definitely hire her again.

Dina is an incredible stylist and image consultant. She has helped me to completely revamp my wardrobe and professional image. I am the first to admit I have no fashion sense and my clothes represented that. Dina transformed my style and confidence in my appearance. She always takes her time to understand my needs and works tirelessly selecting the right items. When we shop together she has everything set up at the shops. It is such an amazing experience. I highly recommend working with Dina! She will make you look and feel wonderful!!

Knowing I needed to make a change to my wardrobe and overall style, I searched long and hard for the right person to work with. After rejecting many candidates, I was very fortunate to find not one but two amazing stylists with Beckie and Martina. They completely understood my situation and met all of my style needs with taste and grace. Beckie and Martina made it look easy and put me completely at ease in an area decidedly outside my comfort zone. I highly recommend working with them.

Cashmeir knew what she was doing. I had her do my makeup for my wedding. I asked for a soft look and she delivered it to me. I first thought I had too much make up on, but it turned out to be perfect especially for photo taking. My pictures came out so good. Me and my husband were very happy. I would recommend Cashmeir to anyone who wants a quality makeup artist.

We scheduled her to come do make up for office staff prior to headshots. She came on time, provided reasonable prices and was very friendly with everyone. Her professionalism and manner made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. To say the least, the photos came out great and it is in part due to her work product. I highly recommend her. Thank you, Angela, for your hard work and dedication to this craft! Keep in touch. All the best, Gio

Mahira was absolutely awesome! I have terrible dark circles under my eyes and concealer doesn’t typically do the trick. Mahira was able to color correct my dark circles and really brighten up my face. The concealer also didn’t crease at all, and normally I have that problem. Mahira’s contouring skills helped to thin out my nose, something I’m always self conscious about in photos. She used quality products that didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. And let’s not forget the amazing work she did with my eye makeup - it was gorgeous!! Overall, beautiful work, and great conversation. Will definitely be calling her again soon!

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!

Kat was amazing! She asked two questions do you want soft make up or dramatic and then she was off doing her thing. She did the bride and my makeup and both were beautifully done. I was especially impressed with her tools she is extremely professional and patient. She travels with own lighting as well as professional camera for her portfolio (I have seen some makeup artists just use cell phones) this may not be a big thing but it let me know she is very serious about what she does. I normally visit the MAC counter for special occasions but I will be calling Kat again for all future engagements. If I could give her 6 stars I would. Definitely give Kat a try you will not regret it.

My experience working with Mrs. Igah can be described in 2 words priceless and inspiring. Priceless because I've never met another stylist like her and inspiring because her work ethics are phenomenal. I had the priviledge of being styled by her and also working side by side as makeup and hair artist on a test shoot. Mrs Igah values every client and is big on equality. Her creative sense is endless and can just about put together something beautiful out if anything. I love JIJANE and look fw to working with her again.

The work Shirley does is very good, I love it because it gives you to choose from many styles and also suggests which one would fit better according to your face, skin color and facial features, use excellent products from good brands and different designers to a better quality of makeup ... she has me makeup for photo sessions and of course for her good work I asked her to make-up and comb for my wedding, I love it because it is very delicate to comb and it is careful, it also makes you a preview a few weeks earlier to know how you're going to want your hairstyle and make-up on the day of the wedding, etc ... also their prices are pretty good or reasonable, you will not regret your good work.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a personal stylist?

To find a fashion consultant, start by browsing portfolios online. Styling is a visual art, so finding a fashion consultant who fits the style you desire is key. Great personal stylists aren’t confined to one style, but if you’re seeking a hipper, fashion-forward vibe, you’d do well to find someone with a modern portfolio, while a fashion consultant with a consistently refined style could be a better fit if you’d prefer a more conservative look. Reading reviews is also helpful for learning more about the fashion consultant. Research their training, background and years of experience. After reviewing websites and Instagram accounts, meet with the stylist in person to learn how well they fit your personality; some fashion consultants offer a free phone consultation prior to hiring. Before hiring, make sure you clearly understand their terms of service and payment.

What do image consultants do?

Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion, such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion either using either what the client owns or taking a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, your lifestyle, and what you hope to present to the world, and will then determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit one area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve. Personal shopping is another service that image consultants provide. After an image assessment, they can either shop with you or shop on your behalf to find you key pieces you need.

What is a fashion consultant?

A fashion consultant is a paid professional who will advise you on what to wear and how to wear it to fit your desired lifestyle or career goals. A fashion consultant can provide many services including personal shopping, closet audits, beauty consultations, style consultations and ongoing seasonal services. A fashion consultant often has a design or fashion background (although this is not required) and an innate sense of style. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the colors, cuts and designs we think suit us. A fashion consultant comes in with fresh eyes and provides constructive feedback to guide your style choices.

During your initial meeting, your fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and learn what you hope to achieve. They’ll identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you how to wear items together. Many consultants create style lookbooks for their clients explaining things like exactly which shoes to wear with what pants and how to accessorize each look. Fashion consultants are a great option for people who are updating their style due to age, career changes or body changes, or who are just ready for a new look and feel. Most fashion consultants charge by the hour, with some offering packages and others working from a retainer.

What is a personal shopper?

Personal shoppers take the pain out of having good fashion. Personal shoppers are paid professionals who work with women, men or children who need style assistance. If you are stuck in a fashion rut, are unsure how to dress in a way that flatters your body, need to revamp your image, or want a more professional career look, personal shoppers can help. Personal shoppers identify the look their client wants to achieve and purchase the necessary clothing and accessories to achieve it. The process often begins with an initial consultation with the client to understand their style goals. This consultation may include a closet “audit,” an assessment of the client’s current wardrobe to see what items can be eliminated and what must be purchased to achieve the desired style.

The client and the personal shopper can shop together, selecting items as a team. The personal shopper may also shop on behalf of the client, then bring all items to the client for a final decision. A third option is pre-shopping, where the personal shopper reaches the store(s) ahead of the client and sets aside clothing for the client to try on, expediting the whole process — a win for anyone who hates spending time in the mall. Personal shoppers can also be hired for one-time events such as weddings, vacations or birthdays. You can also enlist a personal shopper to do your gift shopping for you. Overall, a personal shopper is an investment in making good style choices.

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.
