Juli was wonderful! My day was off schedule but she never batted an eye and got all of my girls makeup done in a timely matter. She did such anot amazing job that she even took on a couple of extra bridesmaids that didn't sign up previously because they had already had bad experiences with makeup artists. Her work was exceptional and I highly recommend her!

Shannon is a personal favorite! She came to my rescue after my makeup artist canceled a few weeks before my wedding. She made things painless and was quick to move things around so she could help me in my time of need! Every interaction with Shannon was a good one. Not only is she a great person, but she made me feel like I was a celebrity. She came to our hotel with her amazing array of products. I gave her a picture of what I wanted and it turned out PERFECT. She is amazing and I am using her for future weddings that I will be a brides maid in. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER

Wow!! I just checked out the many incarnations of Darlando and I am blown away! Talk about the ability to transform. He is on it for real! Even before I checked out pics of his many incarnations, I saw Darlando's ability to be a chameleon with his looks and persona when I saw him in to completely different stage performances. Darlando appeared in my play "The Brownstone" (oops, did I not say I am a playwright? Well, I am). In it, he played a regular, blue-collar, neighborhood guy in the 1970s who loved to dance. He blew everyone away with his dance number in the play. I wasn't even jealous when the audience clamored for an encore of his dance performance at the end. I became a HUGE fan and I wanted to see Darlando wherever he was performing. I caught him in a performance of La Cage and, all I could say was, WHAT!!! He was gorgeous. The makeup was flawless and so glamorous; the long, flowing locks were on point and looked so natural; the Wonder Woman figure was outstanding and the sexy outfit was painted on. With those ultra-high heels, sexy strut (and whip!), he was an audience favorite. It was so hard to believe that he was the same person who played a regular guy in "The Brownstone." Besides his ability to do phenomenal hair and makeup. He knows how to put just the right outfit with the look to make the look work. Also, looks like he's a foodie, too! Who could ask for anything more? I could. I think I will have Darlando do my makeup just see something different. Sometimes you just want a change. Check out "The Darlando Experience." Sorry if I'm gushing but I love his looks! Laura,

    Liz is fantastic. I was so excited to share my stylist with my sister-in-law for her wedding. Liz arrived ready work, early, even though she was traveling a distance to see us. She had four girls with all different hair lengths and types to work with and who all wanted very different styles. We shared pictures and Liz was confident with her ability to make it happen for each of us - and she delivered. We had an additional challenge - the mother of the bride decided last minute to have her hair done also, and she's always very fussy about her hair so she was a challenge. Liz found out about mom and how she normally wore her hair to make sure that mom would feel comfortable. All around Liz did an amazing job and everyone looked great. I can't thank Liz enough for the amazing work she did.


    The attention to detail and the ability to provide a relaxing experience. I also include a mini facial (cleanse, tone and moisturize) before makeup application.


    I do special events, photo sessions, and everyday makeup applications, including makeup tutorials and haircutting.

    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.

    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.

    Do I need a makeup artist for my wedding?

    There are no rules around your wedding day, and that means it’s your choice whether to have a wedding makeup artist. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding makeup artist, consider the pros and cons. Some women decide against a wedding makeup artist to save money. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, which is an expense some women prefer to do without. Other women just don’t love wearing makeup. Some brides have friends or family members who are talented makeup artists willing to provide their services. If you choose not to have a wedding makeup artist, be sure to do at least two trial runs of your makeup look well before the wedding day to avoid any morning-of panic.

    On the other hand, a wedding makeup artist can make the bride feel pampered and confident, giving her a flawless, fabulous look for the ceremony and reception and in wedding photos. For brides who are uncomfortable with heavy makeup, many wedding makeup artists usually excel at the natural look. Many brides consider wedding makeup part of the ritual and tradition of the ceremony, a shared experience with the entire bridal party. Ultimately your choice of whether to hire a wedding makeup artist should be based on what will make you feel most confident and happy.

    How do you choose the right makeup artist for your wedding?

    A wedding makeup artist can ensure a flawless look on your big day. Finding the perfect person isn’t all about price, though. Here are tips for choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding:

    • Research before reaching out. Wedding makeup artists should have an online presence with portfolios of their work. Find someone with an aesthetic you love.
    • Read reviews. You want a wedding makeup artist who’ll be on time, do beautiful work, and add a positive vibe to your day. Pay attention if previous clients report bad experiences with a makeup artist.
    • Consider skin tones. If your bridal party has a range of skin tones, make sure your wedding makeup artist and assistants are experienced and talented working with everyone.
    • Is your top pick available on your date? If so, put down a deposit to secure their services.
    • Confirm rates and payment. Clearly discuss prices and payment plans, and sign a detailed contract so there are no surprises on your wedding day.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
