I had Summer and Milly doing makeup and hair for my wedding. There were five of us getting makeup and four of us getting hair and we started at 10:00am and were done by 2:00pm. Summer and Milly were great to work with and listened to what we all wanted. All of us wanted more natural makeup and it still looked great in the photos. I got married on the coldest, windiest day we'd had in two months, but still wanted to wear my hair down. Milly did a great job creating the look I wanted and despite the wind, it held up for all the important parts (photos and ceremony). I went with Extreme Beauty because they provided a makeup artist and hairstylist, were more affordable than anything in the DC area, and included a trial. The trial was crucial and helped me get the look I wanted. Everyone looked beautiful for the wedding and Summer and Milly traveled over two hours to get to the venue!

Cassie was a true professional through and through. Her work is stunning, and she really listens to what your needs and wants are. If you are unsure, she will help get you there. She also was extremely helpful in showing me tips for how to use my hair extensions on my own. The week of the wedding, there were some last minute timing changes and Cassie was so accommodating. From the non-traditional hair to the very light, simple makeup, Cassie was such a rockstar and made me feel more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I got non-stop compliments all night long, and the photos came out beautifully. I would highly recommend her to any bride! Thank you Cassie!

First to started off, I met Kathleen through her beautiful mother Thelma Ferguson. Kathleen is very outstanding and talent person. She always has a smile on her face and you can hear it though the phone while speaking with her. Kathleen is a very pleasant person always there for her customers. Anytime I needed my hair done she was always there for me. And the one thing I love about Kathleen she has a wonderful personality and a child of god.

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!

Absolutely wonderful! I hired Fashion Facez for hair and makeup services for my wedding on the reccomendation of a friend and after talking with Tammi. She provided pictures of her work and was very easy going in answering all my questions. I initially called regarding just make up services for myself and 4 attendants. Tammi, the owner, immediately got my vision for Old Hollywood Glamour and was immediately on board for the look. She also inquired if I had hair services for the day and put me in contact with one of her stylist. They had a good idea of the look I was going for and provided answers to all my questions. I hired her team to do my hair as well so I could have a cohesive look. Tammi and her team arrived on time to my house and efficiently provided the requested hair and make up services. My mom has allergies and was concerned about the use of make up products. Tammi took that into consideration and was very attentive to ensure that her allergies did not flare up. She also provided different make up well suited for folks with allergies. In terms of my bridesmaid. She gave them all a flawless look that was absolutely divine: In terms of my own bridal hair and make up, her stylist arrived on time as well, spent some time talking with me to determine the best style (I would add that the stylist had called within the week and had sent me some pictures of her works, which is part of the reason I felt so comfortable booking with them). Ciara, the hair stylist delivered a beautiful, flawless up do that did not look like the run of the mill bridal hair but instead looked classic, elegant and well within my vision of Old Hollywood glamour. I have never felt more beautiful than with the gorgeous make up that Tammi provided. I felt exactly like every bride imagines wants to on her wedding day. I felt like myself, not overly made up or drag queen-y but just amped up for my special day. The make up lasted all day and my pictures are gorgeous. My attendants as well who have been in numerous weddings and had many a make up application really felt like the service and make up services were above par! Everyone at the wedding kept remarking on our make up and most people were so impressed that we had the make up artists come to our house the day of....which is something I would def recommend to most brides---it helps with all already stressful day to not have to keep moving. I would highly reccomend Fashion Facez for any bride or anyone looking to get a quality make up artist for any formal occasion!!!

Krista did my hair which was a bit unique and complicated with a variety of braids, volume with extensions. I can't express how beautiful my hair turned out! The style perfectly matched my vision. Everyone complimented me on my hair even when I posted it on Facebook it was the hair then the dress. Krista brought her associate, Casey to do my makeup which also turned out very very beautiful. I don't wear makeup and she made me look 10 years younger with soft romantic colors to highlight the good parts of my face. They were both prompt, professional and respectful of everything by returning whatever they moved such as chairs to their original spots. Even making sure they have rubber wheels to not scratch the pine floors that were in the old farmhouse we got married in. I would highly recommend using Kouture Beauty Designs for your wedding or any event. I will hire them again in January for part two of my wedding! Thanks to both of you!

Mary has been styling my hair for 10+ years. She is an amazing stylist! No matter what I want to try with my hair, Mary is fearless and always goes above and beyond. From taking me to dark browns right back to light blondes, from updos and blowouts to hair treatments and cuts, she does it all with style, professionalism and a true passion for her craft. I’ve recommended her to countless friends and family and she’s retained every one of them as clients. She truly is a gifted artist and an even better person :)

After a long time without cutting my hair l asked Crystal for a big change with cutting a significant amount of hair off and highlights She was so reassuring, warm, and took the time to talk to me about what I wanted and how to style it. She seemed genuinely interested in how I felt about my hair. She had introduced me to new looks, techniques and the most amazing products to use I have never loved a haircut and highlights so much. My hair feels so healthy, is way less tangled, and looks much neater and very stylish. When it was done, I felt beautiful and have booked a future appointment. I would absolutely RECOMMEND HER

I completed 8 wedding hair trials across DC, MD and VA. After a 6 month search, I landed on Zoe Sky for my wedding and I honestly could not be more pleased with her work. She single-handedly completed different looks for 8 bridesmaids , 1 mother, 3 flower girls and myself in less than 5 hours. Everyone was absolutely gorgeous and very pleased with their styles! In fact, several of the girls (including me) have started attending her salon in Philadelphia. Zoe was flexible, affordable, willing to travel and a consummate professional. She was one of the best vendor choices I made and my special day just wouldnt have been the same without her. HIRE ZOE!!!

B of JBB was amazing. She is all about enhancing your beauty and your best features. The thing I like most about working with B is that she listens. Many makeup artist that I have worked with in the past often create a look they think is best, not what I asked for. I like a flawless but natural look and thats what I got. I've been working with he for almost 3 years and she remains my go to makeup artist.

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.

What is a seamless extension?

A seamless hair extension is a type of clip-on hair extension. The extension hair is called the weft. Near the top of the weft, a metal clip mounted to the weft on a silicone base is used to attach the extension to your natural hair. In a traditional clip-on extension, the base that attaches the metal clip to the weft is fabric.

People may prefer seamless extensions due to their lower profile; the silicone can be up to 50 percent thinner than the fabric, making the extension appear more natural — and, therefore, seamless. Seamless extensions usually can be washed (although you shouldn’t keep them submerged for more than 20 seconds) and heat-styled on lower heat settings. You can gently brush seamless hair extensions as well as have them dyed a darker color by a trained professional.

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.

How much do hair extensions cost?

Hair extensions are synthetic or real human hair integrations that add volume and length to your hair. Hairstylists are trained in different techniques to attach extensions to your hair. The cost of extensions can vary greatly depending on the technique used to apply the hair, as well as the type of hair you select. Synthetic hair is typically the least expensive, human hair is next on the pricing scale, remy hair is next, and what is called “virgin” human hair is generally the most sought-after and most expensive. Remy hair signifies that all the cuticles are intact and running in the same direction, making for smoother hair extensions in the long term. Hair is deemed virgin when all the hair is from one donor and has never undergone any chemical processing. Hair prices will vary from company to company; here are some examples of hair from online retailers.

  • Virgin strands (25 strands weighing approximately 1 gram each) for hot fusion application: $44 per bundle.
  • Virgin hair weave (approximately 4 ounces per package): $149 each.

Here are some sample application costs from hairstylists.

  • Full sew-in: $175-$200 or more.
  • Partial sew-in: $125 or more.
  • Micro-link weft extensions: $300 or more.
  • Full-bonded extensions: $75 or more.
