    Jessica and Toni (who did Hair) were just completely amazing. They had us done, not only on time, but early! They had just such a relaxed vibe, that they really helped the morning to stay fun and on track even amid the chaos of getting ready. They have great personalities to work with, were very thoughtful and understanding of each girl's wishes for her special look, and made sure that everyone was happy. We had a 10 hour outdoor wedding, and everyone's hair and makeup held up in 90% humidity through the ceremony, pictures, and well into the night! They made our day so special. Definitely Hire Them!

    Jessica was extremely prompt in responding to me. She was flexible with my short notice request and most importantly she surpassed any expectation I had from her impressive reviews and references. I felt beautiful at my birthday party and it was all because of her. HIGHLY recommend!

    Jessica did my hair and makeup for my wedding two weeks ago. She was amazing! She was prompt, she was friendly, and very helpful when I couldn't really describe how I wanted to look. Most importantly, she made me look great! I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is very talented at both hair and makeup. Thank you, Jessica!

    I did a half day pinup photo shoot with Jessica Saint in Philadelphia, PA.. She was amazing! Jessica has such a warm and welcoming personality which immediately puts her clients at ease. She made me so comfortable it was as if she was a friend I had known my whole life.
    Jessica is an extremely talented stylist and make up artist. She and her team did a beautiful job with my hair and makeup, and she knew exactly what to pull from wardrobe to best fit me and the theme of the shoot. I would absolutely work with her again and I highly recommend that you seize the opportunity to work with her if you're lucky enough to have the chance.

    My daughter was competing in a modeling contest in NY and we live out of state. Jessica was continually prompt in her email responses to me leading up to event. The event itself was running two hours behind and Jessica was calm, cool and collected. She is very easy to talk to, get along with and on top of that, the actual hair and make up was exactly what we asked for, and it was beautiful. She was the backstage parent for my daughter and the two fell into a very easy and comfortable rapport. I cannot imagine a better choice for us. Thank you Jessica and thank you Thumbtack- a great experience all around!

    Jessica and her team were incredible! We sought a very clean, simple look for a commercial photoshoot and she nailed it. Jessica was professional, prompt, and kept all our models looking consistent and beautiful throughout the long day of shooting. Highly recommend!

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Know the field you are looking in by looking up prices for the service you are looking for. Some clients don't know industry standard when it comes to pricing in my field and this can cause them to expect to pay much less or sometimes too much. Do your homework first.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Again, do your homework. Look at what professionals charge for the service you want. There is an industry standard and if someone is charging much less than that standard it will show in their work. In this industry you very much get what you paid for.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Ask how long they have been in the field. What sort of work they have done. Who they have worked with or for. What their rates are for what you are looking for. If they travel. And, of course, ask to see photos of their work.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. They should know what it is they want. What style are they going for. Do they have any photos of makeup they love that they want to use as a reference. Are there several people who need their makeup done? How many? What time and date would you need me? Etc.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I am dedicated to what I do and very artistic. I think outside the box. While I can do very natural makeup I can also do a gorgeous high fashion look! My work speaks for itself.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Pricing. There is an industry standard in the cosmetics/beauty industry. If you are quoted a very low price you will get crappy work. You always get what you pay for when it comes to this profession. Be sure to look up prices before you post for an event, wedding, etc. Know what it is you are looking at price wise for what you want. Other people will low ball the hardworking artists in this industry. And more often than not you will get shoddy work! Do your research and know what to expect. If you want to pay less, then perhaps state your budget outright or go to MAC or Sephora where you are required to either buy $50 worth of product or pay $50 to get your makeup done. Otherwise expect to pay at least $100 or more for all makeup applications, etc.

Q. What are you currently working on improving?

A. I am always working to become a better hair and makeup artist. Where ever I may see faults I try to improve upon them. I believe you are never done growing and learning as an artist, so I will always be working to improve my skill set.
