We had the most amazing experience with Mary Ashanti! We had her as my daughters personal stylist (hair and make up) for her Junior Prom. She was not only professional but felt like family! The end result was amazing. Word at my daughters prom was that "she slayed it" all thanks to Mary!!! Definitely would be happy to have her again!!!

Tatiana did my bridal hair and airbrushed makeup. She was at my house 20 mins before the actual appointment. She is very sweet and takes direction very well. Makeup was flawless and lasted all day, given that my ceremony and photoshoot were outside in 82 degree weather. Will definitely book her again for other events.

Aleetha is truly fabulous! I found her on thumbtack for my wedding. She did my hair, the hair of 6 bridesmaids, MOB and my MIL. My sister ended up loving her hair and hired her for her wedding as well! Both times she did an excellent job and we all received tons of compliments on our hair. She is friendly, fun, and very professional. I highly recommend her. You won't regret it!!

Finding an artist who is both a skilled hair stylist as well as a talented make-up artist is hard to find. Remi is that person all rolled into one! She worked on our commercial shoot and created one look after another that was perfect for our needs. She's a delight to have on set, easy going, very professional and well mannered. I highly recommend her!

Angela was my hair/makeup artist for my wedding on 09/08/17. She was absolutely fabulous! I decided to have a trial run two weeks before the big day, and she captured the exact look I was wanting. My guests were in awe over the makeup and hair style she created. I will definitely reach out to her for any upcoming events!

I needed someone to do my hair and makeup for a 10:30am wedding. She came on the dot 6:45 am. She had everything she needed for the task. I never needed to retouch anything. 11pm passed and the makeup never smudged.it looks as beautiful as the time she finished doing my makeup. Perfect for my wedding. Everybody kept asking me who did my makeup. Everybody compmimented how beautiful I looked on my special day. She doesnt do just simple weddinf makeup. She does function too. I already sweat a lot ywt my makeup stayed the same. You wont regret hiring her.

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!

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!!

Shirley did an amazing job with my hair and makeup. She was on time and brought all of the tools she would need to transform me into a beauty. I had sent her pictures of hair and makeup and she did exactly what I wanted. I looked beautiful for my wedding reception and I received a lot of compliments. She took her time and I felt like I was in heaven being so pampered! I highly recommend Shirly and will use her again. I shopped around and her price was very reasonable.

I have been having my hair styled by Ms. Mihart for the last 30 years. Her warm, friendly personal manner and notable skills as a hair stylist are enough for me to now travel in from New Jersey where I currently live, just to have her cut my hair. I always receive compliments from friends and colleagues after getting my cut as Ms. Mihart really knows her craft and seems to always get it right. She is by far and away the best hair stylist I have ever used. I recommend her without reservation.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

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 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.
