Tanvi came to my house to apply my makeup for my son’s recent wedding. She was punctual, prepared, friendly, and very professional. As a “woman of a certain age” I was concerned that my look be age appropriate and natural. Tanvi was very attuned to my desired outcome and worked to make sure I was totally comfortable and satisfied. I loved how I looked and received many compliments at the wedding. Tanvi is a very talented artist and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to look their best for a special occasion.

1st this was my 1st time EVER having makeup done. I like most seeing that light curiosity got me and yes I slipped my fingers through it out if amazement at everything around me so many, colors brushes, etc..... She asked me color thoughts then gave some suggestions and samples, I wanted it to also match my hair, my 1st weave ever....she did such an amazing job, I love everything about my makeup truly everything, I kept laughing bc it was still beautiful me but amped up beautiful. I kept most of it on the next day and it still looked very pretty, I'm not sure how long others leave on lashes makeup, weave and such but 38 hours was my max......loves it will certainly do it again!!!!!

I was Matron of Honor in a wedding and needed evening makeup. Heather do an amazing job. She did exactly what I requested but went above and beyond and made me feel truly beautiful. I had several blemishes on my face and a spot on my bottom lip, that were so well hidden, my skin looked absolutely perfect. The makeup held up for over 12 hours with only a little powder touch up halfway through the day. Even my lashes stayed on through wedding tears and a whole night of dancing. Heather was also great to work with, cool personality, discussed everything she planned on doing, and she worked really quickly (we were in a time crunch.) I've never had my makeup professionally done before and it was such a fantastic first time. I'll definitely be back!

Morgan did a wonderful job of aiding me with my wedding planning hair and makeup. I didn’t have a very big budget and she really helped me get the most I could with what I had and made sure everything matched what I had invisioned. She offered helpful advice and helped schedule appointments and made sure I stayed on track. She has all her own makeup and materials and also strives to use all makeup that is cruelty free. She also did all my makeup and hair and I’m not adam of wearing makeup but she did a fantastic job. She used just the right amount of makeup to enhance my natural beauty which is something I really like about what she does. She is always timly and is a good multi tasker. Also offers fair pricing for all her services. 10/10 would recommend for makeup hair or any planning help you may need.

    Jessica did a FANTASTIC job on my hair/makeup and my bridesmaids' hair for my special day (Oct 9th, 2016). As you can see in my pictures, everything turned out beautifully. She was super sweet, reliable, punctual, and affordable! She even helped with a little bit of set-up when I was falling behind on getting everything done. 5 stars!

    She's extremely professional and extremely talented at what she does. I could not hope for a better makeup artist. Her work photographs incredibly well (as a photographer, this is UBER important to me!) she is patient and considerate with the clients and is really sweet and kind to converse with--and so knowledgeable! I love working with her and I will keep doing so for as long as she lets me hire her!

    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.
