Zsahnece is absolutely amazing!!! I was running late for a photo shoot and I decided to cancel the shoot but still get my makeup done. After Z got done with my face I called the photographer and begged him to fit me in at the end of the day, as his last client. Z is diligent, professional, well informed and can easy calm a teary eye with her tips and tricks. She's the best!!!

She was on time and did an amazing job. I was very happy with my hair and make up for a professional bikini competition. The make up application ended up looking beautiful for 16+ hours. It was done at 6:30am and I was still taking photos at 10pm without any touch ups. Highly reccomend for make up

I hired Tanya to get some family and friends (7 altogether- I added 2 last minute) ready for my wedding. I hired her after I hired someone else for myself. After I saw everyone else after they were ready, I instantly wished I hired Tanya for myself. Tanya was very flexible. I was able to negotiate my contract to exactly what I needed. The women who needed hair and makeup ranged from 92 to 23 so she had to be flexible enough to accommodate several different styles, hair types and makeup. Her prices were beyond reasonable. I contacted 10 different stylists and she was the best price and her portfolio was nicer than most. She also added eyelashes at no additional cost. She put eyelashes on my 92 year old grandmother and she instantly looked 20 years younger. I was afraid it would look cheap but it wasn't! I asked for a 2nd stylist to make the day-of ready time quicker and she added a another stylist immediately, no questions asked. Her response time to Thumbtack, email and text were quick. It was such a relief since I planned a wedding in 6 weeks and needed prompt responses. I asked Tanya to do hair and makeup for my 2 cousins at 2:30pm the day of the wedding and she did it without any issues. Anyone else would have made a huge fuss. She also put hair jewelry on 3 girls without additional charge. I could go on for another page about how accommodating, how professional, and how beautiful her work is but I'll just add the photos here so you can see!

I absolutely love Stephanie! If you're interested in booking a makeup artist for any and all occasions, look no further Stephanie is all you need! I have had my makeup done by Stephanie multiple times and she never fails to deliver an all inclusive professional makeup experience. When I stumbled across Stephanie's work, I immediately reached out to book this hidden gem. Stephanie responded right away and was extremely accommodating and flexible. Stephanie arrived punctually and began setting up her work station right away. It only took minutes for Stephanie to have the most diverse array of brushes and makeup I've ever seen, she even had lighting! Stephanie was professional, friendly, and made me feel completely comfortable. Stephanie is exceedingly sanitary and kept everything cleaned and organized as she worked. Stephanie gave me tips on problem areas I informed her on when doing my own makeup and shared her methods on achieving desired looks. When I looked in that mirror after Stephanie finished my makeup, I was AMAZED! It was everything I wanted and more. Stephanie enhanced my natural beauty without making it seem like I had makeup on just like I asked of her. It was STUNNING and all night everyone kept complimenting me and asking where I got my makeup done. Never had I felt so BEAUTIFUL and at the center of attention.I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone! Stephanie is a brilliant artist! I have challenged her to do both natural and dramatic beauty makeups along with frighteningly beautiful Halloween makeup. Stephanie surpasses my expectations every time. Stephanie has great prices for the value of services she provides. Stephanie has done makeup on me and a group of my friends always within the timeline set. Stephanie even takes professional photographs of the makeup, with permission, and emailed me the pictures!! 10 out of 10. Stephanie is the best makeup experience I've ever had and she comes to you. What more could anyone ask?!

WOW!!! We hired Ashley as a last minute replacement for a magazine cover shoot that we were creating over the Labor Day Weekend. It was meant to be!!! We went into a panic when our makeup artist backed out - there was no need. She eased our tensions, her bubbly personality and professionalism combined with serious skills helped to create one of the best photo shoots we have ever participated in. EVERYONE wanted her card - models, hair, designers!!! The most experienced model didn't take her makeup off before leaving - I asked her why - she said she had never had anyone do her makeup as good as it was and she wanted to enjoy it!!! Thanks Ash!!! We will see you again! Bill & Kris

Tiffany was absolutely incredible for my wedding day. She arrived right on time to our hotel, set up, and was working within minutes. She made sure everyone was completely satisfied with their hairstyles and returned to them all again before leaving to ensure every last piece of hair was in place. Tiffany was fun and upbeat, keeping the mood light and everyone laughing as we got ready for the big day. It was truly a pleasure working with her and I would recommend Manelee Hair to anyone!!

Susan was fantastic!!! After finishing grad school at the age of 30, I felt like an entirely different person. Everything in my life was different...job, friends, money, location....but my wardrobe still screamed broke, young, college student. I realized that my wardrobe definitely needed to be refreshed but Susan brought me more of a revolution. I was hesitant to reach out to a stylist since I associated them with trendy girls and the Hollywood bunch. But as a guy who hates shopping, I also realized that I don't have a sense of style and I'm tired of spending money on clothes that I dislike a year later. So I reached out to Susan after viewing her website and she was very welcoming and accommodating. She came to my place (an hour drive) and basically cleared out my closet, which was shocking at the time but completely needed in hindsight! We talked about what kind of style I wanted, how much money I was looking to spend and set up some days to shop. Later, we met at the mall and she had everything picked out! I had more successful shopping in an hour with her than I had in years of doing it by myself. Jeans, suits, shirts, jackets, shoes, accessories...she covered it all. It felt so easy and I was surprised to walk out with so many clothes that I otherwise wouldn't have looked at. That was probably the best part of my experience with Susan...she picked out a style for me that I really loved but wouldn't have looked at or bought on my own. As a guy, I needed some help from a professional to guide me and teach me some things about clothing. Susan was paying attention to details that I never thought about and her standard for a quality outfit was way higher than mine ever was. Susan was very flexible in terms of scheduling and her prices were very reasonable. I would definitely recommend her as a stylist to anyone who needs some new clothing.

Love n Glow's services were excellent! I had my bridal makeup done along with my bridesmaids and mother of the bride. Everything was done in a professional manner and everyone looked amazing! It rained on my wedding day and the makeup lasted for 10 hours plus! I would highly recommend Love n Glow and plan on using them for my next event :)

Yanelsi did my makeup and hair for a family photo session I had on the beach in Avalon, NJ. She did a fabulous job and both my makeup and hair were exactly what I wanted. She was also extremely professional! I will definitely be using her services again when we come back to the area for vacation next year.

Elisha is my sewing teacher and she excellent. I found her here, on Thumbtack and have been going to her for a month so far. Elisha is way more than just a seamstress or a sewing teacher, she has a degree in design along with several years of experience. She actually creates the patterns that we make together and walks me through each step of the process. So, if I want a jersey dress with elbow length sleeves and a V neck? She can make the pattern to my measurements, walk me through the steps of HOW she made it...and, since she has 8 years of experience as a stylist, she can help me accessorize the finished product. When I first started going to Elisha, I didn’t know how to sew at all. I didn’t even own a sewing machine. Now, I have a sewing machine, I know how to use it, and with Elisha’s help and incredible pattern making skills, I know soon, I’ll be able to create anything! Elisha is very professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. She has an infectiously sparkling personality , so just being around gives me an instant mood lift!

Steph came to my home on time and completely organized every time. I have gotten my hair and make up done on several occasions and my hair cut and colored as well. She has educated me on products that are best for ME! And I feel like a queen for every event she glams me. I will never use another stylist. My only regret is that I didn’t have her for my wedding! 5 stars and I’ve already booked her for more

Marissa is my "go to" girl for any special event that I need my hair styled for or even if I just want a nice blow out. Her updos are amazing and I've never regretted my decision to have her do my hair. Marissa has great creative style, if you are unsure of exactly what you want or if you have a photo to show her, she can copy it and it usually turns out better than the photo! She is always professional, prompt and completes your hair style in a timely fashion. I've seen much of her work and she will never disappoint. She did my hair for my bachelorette party and my rehearsal dinner, both of which I received compliments on throughout the night. Her professionalism, personality and skill are the qualities that make her the great stylist that she is! I give her a 5 star rating and would recommend her to anyone in need.

Sheena's The Stylist

New To Thumbtack

    About

    I am a Philadelphia based hairstylist. I have been doing hair since high school where I began styling friends and family for fun from ponytails to cut in curls, weaves, braids, etc. Since then, I have been dedicated to putting smiles on clients' faces.

    About

    I have worked in education for over 15 years, interacting with the public -- parents, students, community representatives from politics and business, as well as various administrative levels within the educational structure. I've seen the best and the worst. I have also worked in a few clothing stores over the years. These two industries, though seemingly different, constantly overlap the concept of people displaying their style and taste. People of all ages need assistance dressing appropriately. Working together, it is possible to find what is appropriate and comfortable, without sacrificing your own personal style.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What do image consultants do?

    Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion, such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion either using either what the client owns or taking a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, your lifestyle, and what you hope to present to the world, and will then determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit one area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve. Personal shopping is another service that image consultants provide. After an image assessment, they can either shop with you or shop on your behalf to find you key pieces you need.

    How do I find a personal stylist?

    To find a fashion consultant, start by browsing portfolios online. Styling is a visual art, so finding a fashion consultant who fits the style you desire is key. Great personal stylists aren’t confined to one style, but if you’re seeking a hipper, fashion-forward vibe, you’d do well to find someone with a modern portfolio, while a fashion consultant with a consistently refined style could be a better fit if you’d prefer a more conservative look. Reading reviews is also helpful for learning more about the fashion consultant. Research their training, background and years of experience. After reviewing websites and Instagram accounts, meet with the stylist in person to learn how well they fit your personality; some fashion consultants offer a free phone consultation prior to hiring. Before hiring, make sure you clearly understand their terms of service and payment.

    What is a personal shopper?

    Personal shoppers take the pain out of having good fashion. Personal shoppers are paid professionals who work with women, men or children who need style assistance. If you are stuck in a fashion rut, are unsure how to dress in a way that flatters your body, need to revamp your image, or want a more professional career look, personal shoppers can help. Personal shoppers identify the look their client wants to achieve and purchase the necessary clothing and accessories to achieve it. The process often begins with an initial consultation with the client to understand their style goals. This consultation may include a closet “audit,” an assessment of the client’s current wardrobe to see what items can be eliminated and what must be purchased to achieve the desired style.

    The client and the personal shopper can shop together, selecting items as a team. The personal shopper may also shop on behalf of the client, then bring all items to the client for a final decision. A third option is pre-shopping, where the personal shopper reaches the store(s) ahead of the client and sets aside clothing for the client to try on, expediting the whole process — a win for anyone who hates spending time in the mall. Personal shoppers can also be hired for one-time events such as weddings, vacations or birthdays. You can also enlist a personal shopper to do your gift shopping for you. Overall, a personal shopper is an investment in making good style choices.

    What is a fashion consultant?

    A fashion consultant is a paid professional who will advise you on what to wear and how to wear it to fit your desired lifestyle or career goals. A fashion consultant can provide many services including personal shopping, closet audits, beauty consultations, style consultations and ongoing seasonal services. A fashion consultant often has a design or fashion background (although this is not required) and an innate sense of style. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the colors, cuts and designs we think suit us. A fashion consultant comes in with fresh eyes and provides constructive feedback to guide your style choices.

    During your initial meeting, your fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and learn what you hope to achieve. They’ll identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you how to wear items together. Many consultants create style lookbooks for their clients explaining things like exactly which shoes to wear with what pants and how to accessorize each look. Fashion consultants are a great option for people who are updating their style due to age, career changes or body changes, or who are just ready for a new look and feel. Most fashion consultants charge by the hour, with some offering packages and others working from a retainer.

    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.
