Gabriel and her assistant came to the site where my friend was getting married and did our hair and makeup. The hairstylist captured each of our personalities in the hairstyle (we each had a different 'do), and we looked amazing. The makeup was phenomenal. The bride has a lot of allergies and Gabriel went out and bought makeup special for this occasion. And it lasted a really long time! One of the bridesmaids woke up the next morning with it still on perfectly! Lol 11/10 would definitely recommend to anyone.

Monique is absolutely amazing!!!! She did mine and my boyfriends Halloween makeup for our party and did an outstanding job. We went as Jack and Sally from the Nightmare before Christmas and I couldn't have been more happy with the outcome. I highly recommend her not only for beauty, but theatrical as well. Thanks again Monique!!!!! :)

Kirsten did an amazing job! I've had bad experiences before with salons but Kirsten was able to listen to what I wanted and cut, dyed, and styled my hair perfectly the way I wanted. She is very flexible for her customer and works hard to give you exactly what you want. I had a very positive experience with Kirsten's work and I cant wait to go back again.

Jennifer (in one word) is amazing. She did my trial for my wedding shower. At that time, my hair stylist canceled on me at the last minute but Jennifer said she would be able to do my hair also ( curls and extensions). She practically saved the day! She is very friendly, super nice and she listens to you. Then she did my wedding just recently. She was ahead of her game. She came in early and started doing make up for family members, bridesmaids and my make up in between. My family and my bridesmaids all come from different ethnicity and skin complexion. She matched everyone perfectly! Everyone looked stunning! My make up was water proof and I cried and kissed and hugged everyone at my wedding and danced all night,my make up didn't wear off. The products she uses are the high end brands. She definitely knows what she is doing.

My stylist is the best. She is very understanding and accomodating. Please note, she is down to earth and will be real and honest with her clients. Her time management is excellent. I love her styling, techniques, and skills. The atmosphere in her salon is always warm, comforting, and welcoming. We have some great times during my appointments. I love and appreciate her dearly.

Cara was 1 of 2 MUA I hired to do wedding makeup for my bridal party on 9/3/16, and all I have to say is "WOW!!" I found her profile on thumbtack (first time I used the site) and I was immediately drawn to her, because of her positive reviews and credentials. Her and I messaged back and forth, and she was very professional, not to mention --extremely punctual in responding back. Two days before my wedding, she texted me just to touch base, which was comforting. I had a bridal party of 8 (including myself) and she drove an hour and 15 minutes to come to us! (Which was very accommodating-- and she didn't charge a travel fee!!) Her prices are extremely reasonable-- especially given the beautiful work she did. Everyone looked absolutely stunning. Cara was easy to work with and I'm so happy I hired her to help enhance the beauty of my already beautiful bridesmaids!! =)

    oco did a killer job with our wedding makeup. She did makeup on me (the bride) 3 bridesmaids, one bridesman, as well as mother and grandmother of the bride. Each of our looks were unique and beautiful and photographed incredibly well. I truly have never felt so beautiful. We all had such a great time with Coco, she helped add to our fun get ready vibe the morning of the wedding and she fit right in. During our first meeting, Coco asked all the right questions to get the right look for my big day, and helped me feel at ease. She constantly stayed in contact, was prompt and reliable. I would sincerely recommend Coco for any of your makeup needs. She more than exceeded my expectations, and you better believe if I need to look stunning for anything, I will give her a call :)

    Stephen is very professional, talented, and reasonably priced! I was so happy to have him as the makeup artist for my wedding. He traveled to me for both the makeup trial and the wedding day. This meant a lot, especially since he was traveling from further than the opposite side of the city, and his pricing still remained very fair. On the day of the trial, he gave me a look on the first try that was exactly what I didn't even know I wanted. I had previously sent him a few celebrity photos from Pinterest to describe the looks I like, and he managed to combine them all to create a natural, but still glamorous look. I never wear foundation and when I do wear eye makeup, it is often only once or twice per month, so it was important to me that the makeup wasn't too over the top. Stephen was able to achieve just that, but still make me feel beautiful. I also love that he used false lashes to add a little extra pop to my eyes. Luckily for me, my makeup trial was the morning of my bridal shower, so I was able to test out the look and see how long it would last. I received countless compliments on my makeup at the shower and it lasted all day. On the day of the wedding, Stephen arrived prepared and professional as usual. I had him do my MOH's makeup first while I got my hair done, then my makeup, then my mom, then one of my bridesmaids. Stephen worked on our makeup from about 9am-1pm without a break. He even managed to cut down the per person time for my mom and bridesmaid (since they arrived a little later than planned) in order to accommodate my tight timeline. The four of us who had our makeup done were very pleased with the end product. We all felt beautiful, but still like ourselves. I felt that my makeup was even better on the wedding day than the trial, and it lasted all day and into the night from about 10am to midnight when I washed it off. If you are looking for a talented makeup artist who is willing to travel to you and offer great prices, Stephen with Walkintobeauty is the right choice. I would strongly recommend him!

    Moira did the makeup for my sisters wedding for the bridal party and the mother of the bride. She not only has technical skills and made all the girls feel beautiful she also is very personable and was easy to communicate with. She was accommodating to my sisters requests and wishes and even met her at the hotel to do her make-up trial. I wish I lived in Cleveland and could have Moira do my make-up every day!

          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.
