Chelsea and 2 assistants did hair and makeup for my wedding party. There were 7 people total, including myself and we all looked wonderful. Chelsea is professional and knows how to get the look you want. I felt beautiful on that day and I just want to thank Chelsea for her great work! If you need a talented makeup and hair artist at an affordable price I definitly suggest her services.

Christy did hair and makeup for a photo shoot and put in extra effort to know what I was going for in advance. She had all the right tools and had a great salon. I would definitely go back for future beauty needs!

I may be the pickiest person alive. I had Tara come to the Dominican for my wedding and do my hair and makeup along with all of my bridesmaids hair and makeup. Every single one of us looked amazing! I could not have asked for anything better! I’d ask Tara to come again in a heartbeat. If you’re looking for someone who knows what she’s doing, contact Tara!

Jamie was an absolute dream to work with. Her bridal team arrived early and finished the four of us in a surprisingly short amount of time. Atoya & Lindsay did the most amazing hair and makeup for each of us that lasted beautifully for the entire evening. I cannot recommend them highly enough ! Thank you, Jamie, Atoya & Lindsay ! ! ! !

Catherine has done my hair for a few years and has also done my hair and make up for a photo shoot. She is such a pleasure to work with. She listens To what you want, gives you great ideas of what looks best on you and walks you through the steps so you can replicate the look at home. I have gone to several other hair and makeup Stylists in the past and I have never walked away feeling as great about myself as a do when I leave an apt. with Catherine. I have recommended her to several people feeling confident they will leave as happy as I do : ) -Ashley Andrews

I had my hair and makeup done by Julie for a wedding that I was a part of. I could not have been happier with the final result. She really listened to me and by doing so, was able to achieve the look i was going for! She far exceeded my expectations! She’s very professional and has an extremely likeable personality. No “awkward silence” feeling with her! :D

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.

Katarina is a gem to work with. She is overall a great make-up artist, she has the right tools, she knows what she is doing and she is willing to work with you to get the look YOU want. Katarina goes above and beyond what is necessary and is always looking for ways to surprise you with something you never expected but are bound to love. My friend just hired Katarina to do her make-up and was SO happy with the results. Katarina even drove out to her venue to fix her hair because the salon that had done it did such a poor job. She was a life saver for the Bride! I highly recommend Katarina for you next wedding or event, if you want to look and feel your best! :)

Moriah made up my husband and I for Halloween. Our basic premise was "living dead girl and guy". Our makeup looked amazing and we were highly complimented all night at our Halloween party. Moriah did great work, showed up on time, confirmed our appointment etc and we would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to dress up for a party and stand out from the crowd. She spent two hours with the both of us and even helped me put on my fake eyelashes to finish off my outfit :)

I had an amazing experience with CruBeauty. She was attentive, she was fun, she was everything I was hoping for in a makeup artist. I normally do my own makeup so I was super hesitant to let someone else do it, but Cristina made me feel so comfortable it was like she was the one doing my makeup all along! I wouldn’t even consider anyone else when I have someone I can trust 100% now. HIGHLY recommend.

Myranda did my bridal make-up and she did an amazing job! She had me send her pictures of make-up looks I liked on Pinterest so she could get an idea of what I liked. She brought tons of great MAC make-up with her and arrived early to get me ready. I got so many compliments on my make-up from the wedding guests and it photographed really well. Myranda is a consummate professional with years of experience in makeup artistry.

    Kosar did my wedding day make-up. We did a trial first at my house to determine the look I wanted, and then she did my make-up at my wedding venue the day-of. She has a lot of great make-up she selects from, but also since I buy Mac makeup we were able to use some of mine as well. I prefer a natural look and took comfort knowing my favorite lipstick and a few of the colors I normally wear, I'd have on for my wedding day. Kosar is a pro, she knows how to contour beautifully. She also knows how to use the right amount so your look is elegant in person and also gives allows you to look great for the camera. She did a great job listening to what I wanted. She also understood the timing required to get make-up completed on your wedding day, such that I could relax for my hair and then the make-up. My eye make-up and all around look was stunning and I was so pleased to have her there helping me on my big day!

    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 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.

    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 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
