Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good hairstylist?

First, pull up a list of nearby hairstylists on Thumbtack, and read their profiles to get an understanding of what they specialize in — hair coloring, cutting, extensions, wedding hairstyles, etc. Then, start searching for stylists who have high ratings and customer reviews. You should also spend some time looking at photos that showcase their work. That way, you can determine if a stylist has the experience and skills needed to achieve the look you want. 

When you’ve identified at least three hairstylists you like, ask them for a cost estimate and make sure they have the proper credentials.

How do you hire a hairstylist?

After you find a few hairstylists you’re interested in, you need to decide who to hire. To figure this out, ask yourself these questions when evaluating each candidate:

  • Does the hairstylist have mostly positive customer reviews and high ratings?
  • Is the hairstylist charging prices that are reasonable and within my budget?
  • Does this person specialize in my hair type and texture?
  • Can the hairstylist achieve the look I want?
  • Does the hairstylist have the proper training?
  • Can the hairstylist come to me (i.e., are they a mobile hairstylist?), or do I need to go to their place of business?

What does a hairstylist do?

Many hairstylists have the training and skills to do the following:

  • Shampoo and condition hair
  • Blow-dry hair
  • Cut and trim hair
  • Color, dye and bleach hair
  • Straighten, braid and curl hair
  • Install hair extensions and weaves

The best hairstylists can recommend styles and advise you on how to properly care for your hair type. Some may specialize in a certain treatment, or they may focus on hairstyles for events, such as a wedding.

How much do you tip hairstylists?

A good rule of thumb is to tip your hairstylist at least 20%. Of course, it’s OK to tip more or less than 20%.

If you decide to tip 20%, here’s a quick guide on how much to tip your hairstylist:

What should I do if my hairstylist messes up?

If you believe your hairstylist messed up, bring it to their attention. Talk to them about what you expected and why you’re not happy with the end result. Because many professionals rely on positive customer reviews and word of mouth to keep their business going, they’re often willing to make adjustments.

Reviews for Tigard hair stylists
Thumbtack Customer
Jamie is a true professional. And I don't throw that word around lightly even if it is used with abandon by so many people these days. I had a time crunch and needed an install on hair extensions with no time time to spare, Jamie was out of town when I made the request. She didn't bat an eye and immediately agreed to help me out on the very same day her plane landed! No whining, no extra fees for her trouble - nothing. I was impressed, But that was just the beginning. Jamie proved to be easy-going, down to earth and flexible and most amazing of all - she was able to take the brunt of my hyper, over-stressed, frantic energy with complete class and calm. She never looked annoyed with me (I would've been!) and she managed to bring my panic mode down from a up in my tree 10 level down to a normal 5 or so - which is unheard of. But - it;s really all about the hair. I had ordered my own hair from Spain and was a bit disappointed in it . I asked her opinion and she was very gracious and hones but not at all disrespectful in her reply. And so I am definitely going to go with her vendor next time I get my hair done with Jamie. She is a very quick worker, too. Fast and damn good at what she does. She knows everything about what she does but best of all - she does not feel the need to brag about it. Something else I find a rarity these days among stylists. And the more and the louder they brag about all their "years of experience " and how they are a "professional" I find, the less they really know. Jamie is the exact opposite of those braggarts. She is the quiet genius to their bumbling moron. And I am couldn't be happier that I found her! I told her today that I consider a great stylist to be as rare and as important as a great auto mechanic - and when you find them - you stick with them. And I intend on staying loyal to her. She is talented, flexible, knowlgeable about hair and products, and I almost don't want to let the secret out about her for fear everyone will start going to her and I won't be able to get an appointment anymore! lol - but she also has ridiculously reasonable prices to top it all off. I have to stop bragging about her now because i am going to create the exact thing I fear, So ...that's it. You people keep your own stylists. Jamie is mine! ;-)
