Zsahne did my makeup recently for a photo shoot and she was amazing! She knew exactly what colors would look right on my skin tone and also taught me how to do contouring which was brand new for me. I don't generally wear a lot of foundation or anything but she made me comfortable so I didn't feel like I was wearing too much makeup. She's also a very kind, sweet woman. I would love to use her again next time I need my makeup done!

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

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?!

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 :)

I went in for highlights, and Suki was my stylist. She was very patient with my hair as it is very thick and damaged. She's knowledgable and knew the best route to give me the look I wanted. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you, sweetheart!😊

I recently decided to change my hair color, and was hesitant to say the least. I showed Megan a photo of a cocoa-cinnamon color and she did EXACTLY what I wanted! I absolutely love it and get compliments all the time! She is amazing! She is always professional and explains the process every step of the way. She is the best!! :)

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.

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

Beke Beau is a makeup magician. I have used her twice recently, first for a TV interview and then for a photo shoot for a magazine article. My makeup looked natural, not overdone. I looked like the best version of myself. She is also very pleasant. I highly recommend her.

    If you are in the throws of wedding planning, you can rejoice now that you have found Aida!!! Not only will she make you your most stunning self, but she will make your life so simple! In the midst of planning a wedding, it was such a relief to have a pro like Aida handling all things beauty. We began communicating about five months before our big day. I told her my ideas and shared some of my favorite inspiration photos. From those images, she developed a one-of-a-kind up-do, which she customized during the trial. It was seriously perfect. On the day of, The Bridal Beauty Specialists traveled to my family's house with all the goodies in tow, airbrush makeup, blow-out tools, up-do necessities, lashes, etc. Aida had already taken care of scheduling and pricing for me and my six bridesmaids (+ my mom and one unplanned aunt), so there was nothing left to do but enjoy the day and get pretty! We chose to pay individually on the day because that is what worked for us, but Aida will tailor the day based on your wants and needs. I could go on and on, but all you need to know is that working with Aida is a dream. She and her beauty team are extraordinarily talented (not to mention fabulous company!), and I guarantee they will help make your day so special. Thank you again, Aida!!!

    Excellent makeup artist. Changed her makeup formula to create waterproof make for me for a photoshoot. It was an underwater shoot and my makeup stayed on for three hours without smudging! It was even perfect after I drove home. Both my photographer Harry Martin and I were extremely pleased. To see the photos check out my underwater shots at Facebook.com/lezzeroni. Proof of what an amazing makeup artist crystal is!

    Jess styled me through college till present. She has helped me with interview outfits for recent job applications. She is always able to make me look much more professional. In a mostly-male field (law enforcement), it is great to have a well-organized stylist you can contact in a pinch. Going-out was always difficult for me because I could never find something that looked decent on my body. Jess helped me feel more comfortable by dressing me to impress. Since I have trouble wearing heels, she has suggested kitten heels and booties which make my calves look great. The added plus is that I do not hurt the next day. Thanks Jess!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    How much do wedding makeup artists cost?

    A wedding means love, celebration and tons of wedding photos. Professional wedding makeup artists have you looking your best on your big day and forever after in your wedding photos. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, although this price can increase based on your location, the extent of the makeup services and the reputation of the makeup artist. Most wedding makeup artists offer discounts to brides who book group services for their maids, mothers and flower girls at the same time. Wedding makeup artists who also do wedding hair usually offer package rates for hair and makeup combos. Here are some examples of average wedding makeup pricing:

    • Bridal makeup: $85-$125. Pricing often includes full face, eyes, lips, brows and false eyelashes. Airbrush makeup may be an additional $20 or more.
    • Bridal hair and makeup: $150-$200.
    • Bridesmaid and bridal party makeup: $50-$100 per person.
    • Bridesmaid hair and makeup: $100-$150.
    • Flower girl makeup: $25-$35.
    • Trial sessions: $60-$120, depending on the makeup artist. Some charge their full rate and others charge a partial rate for trial makeup services.
    • Hourly rates to stay on and keep makeup touched up throughout reception: $35-$75 per hour.
    • Travel fees: 50 cents to $1 per additional mile beyond a set radius — such as 50 miles.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
