Gosh, where to begin. Christina is a lovely and talented woman. She is very devoted to her work. I can see that she is also passionate about what she does. She did a wonderful job on my makeup. The end result was absolutely wonderful. She is so precise and does a fantastic job. Her skills are beyond perfect as she is very observant and tailors each look uniquely to her clients. I strongly recommend Christina, Eye Shine Beauty, for all of your makeup needs.

I was thrilled to discover such a fabulous salon in the Woodstock area. Cristy is spot on with my haircolor and cut, and she is a happy, caring person to boot. I always look forward to my hair appointments. I give Cristy my total 100% endorsement. Go see her - she's worth it!

I've worked with Tara as a model on a four-day shoot for a nationally published ad campaign. Tara did a phenomenal job on my hair and makeup, and I'd definitely recommend her in the future! Additionally, I reached out to Tara for my hair extensions. As a first time user of real hair extensions (with clamped beads) I felt extremely comfortable with the entire process. Tara was extremely knowledgeable and did an incredible job. I get complements on my hair everywhere I go! I'll always recommend her. She's definitely my go-to stylist, especially since she can do both hair and makeup!

Couldn't of asked for a better experience! Hair and makeup was on point and lasted through the day and evening. Turned out more beautiful then I could imagine. Antonia is super talented and gives you exactly what you need and want. She was on time and ready to go. I have to say my wedding day was a lil' stressful and full of "unexpected surprised" Antonia was so calm and understanding. I needed last minute hair for a couple of my bridesmaids and she did it willingly and on the spot they came out beautiful. Thank you Antonia, you're the best!

Jamie is incredible! Beyond her amazing talent with hair and make up, she is one of the BEST people I know! Her work speaks for itself! Here's a story: My young daughter was in the hospital for close to a week last December for an ongoing Neurological condition she suffers from. The Doctors had to glue electrodes into her hair and then wrap them with gauze and a head wrap to keep them in place. The glue was bright blue and my daughter's hair is super SUPER blonde, almost white. Beyond being scared about the procedure she was undergoing, she was worried about her hair coming out as a result of all the nasty glue. Upon being released from the hospital we went right to see Jamie at her salon. She squeezed us in and did a Diamond deep conditioning treatment on my daughter's hair. She took the time to help get every bit of blue glue out and restored my daughter's hair to what it was, if not better....with even more gorgeous shine then she'd ever had before. Most hair dressers would not spend that kind of time or attention on a small child, but Jamie didn't hesitate to give that to my daughter.

I had initially done a trial with Claire in which I wanted very natural looking makeup, then I went home and took pictures and decided I wanted to slightly glam that version up and Claire was fine with the last minute change. Additionally, my mother in law also decided that she would like her makeup done and Claire was able to add her as well, which was really nice. Also, she was able to recommend a product for me that seems really great. She was nice to work with and on a strange side note- her makeup smelled great. LOL.

I had a photoshoot with a friend of mine whose a photographer, and Erika did my makeup. She brought out my "natural" beauty without making me look over done. I felt confident and the make up was flawless. I didn't want to take it off at the end of the day!

I don’t usually leave reviews, however, Cristina did my wife’s makeup for our wedding, and oh my god I cried. My wife just looked absolutely beautiful, and Cristina had catered to all her needs and listened to everything she had to say about the makeup application. Not only was Cristina extremely skilled, she was so patient and hardworking; you could really tell that she puts all her heart into her work. Hire her, you will not be disappointed.

    Shawna is the artist who did my bridal hair and makeup for my wedding. Shawna was a consummate professional from the start of the process through my last touch up and I would give her 10 stars if I could. She is highly skilled and crafted the perfect hair and makeup combination for the wedding. In fact, it felt like she knew what I wanted/needed better than I did! The hair and makeup presented beautifully in the pictures and I would not have changed a thing. Shawna was patient, kind, and helped keep the morning before my wedding very calm. It was like having a friend with amazing skills do my hair and makeup! If you are looking for someone to make you look like the best version of yourself on your wedding day, you should book Shawna or a member of the Lux team!

    You will have the best experience working with Christie! Hands down, she is one of the most talented Makeup Artists in the Pacific Northwest. Christie has spent years training with CHANEL, Laura Mercier and making countless brides look beautiful. She has a natural ability in choosing complimentary colors coupled with perfect application technique which is flawless. She is also a wiz with false eyelashes. Everyone who leaves her chair looks stunning. The added bonus -- Christie is professional, smart and very sweet. I highly recommend CM Artistry!

    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.
