Extremely pleased by the service we received through this business! My daughter got both her hair and makeup done and looked BEAUTIFUL on her wedding day!! The bridal party and I (MOB) looked fabulous, as well. The makeup was classy and not "overly" done. I heard many compliments throughout the day, and would highly recommend these stylists/artists. :D

Kristen is one of the most talented, well-renowned, intelligent and creative people I've had the pleasure of working with. She brings so much life and charisma into every room she walks into and always gets the job done. Whether it's style, wardrobe, photo shoot prep, image consulting, or anything of the like, Kristen will find the best solution for her clients while making sure they look fabulous and have fun while doing so. She goes beyond your punctuality, fiscal and trend "standards" because she's one of the best in the industry. I highly recommended Ms. Blake!

Emily with Effortless Style was amazing. Within 2hrs of requesting this service we met at the clothing store to pick out a few new outfits for a photo shoot I had the very next day. I'm on the larger size and she was extremely professional with excellent taste to make me look great. Thank you!!

My friends and I were all very impressed with Jaiya. She arrived early and was organized and professional but warm and personable too. Two of us were planning on getting made up with her but when my other friend saw how great our looks turned out, she decided to have Jaiya do hers as well. I won't lie, we looked AMAZING! We were doing a photo shoot and the pictures turned out fantastic thanks to Jaiya and our great photographer. Jaiya was specific in discovering the look we were each aiming for and she totally nailed it. All three of us were thrilled.

Melissa did my hair for my wedding as well as my entire bridal party. She's nothing short of a detailed perfectionist with an innate sense of creativity. You won't get up from where you're sitting unless you look absolutely perfect! She's a rare jack of all trades : hair, makeup, nails, fashion, cook, you name it. If you're looking for a style that will be breathtakingly beautiful and hold all day and a stylist who will be honest, reliable, and fun to be around then Melissa is your gal!

Morgan did both my hair and make-up, but I want to focus on my hair- I have so much and because I came in from overseas- we didn't have time for a practice round! I got so many compliments on my hair! It was gorgeous! I wish I had a photo to add here, but wedding pics take awhile! Even the next morning at brunch my family was still raving about my hair! I'd recommend her for both hair and make-up! Thanks heaps for coming out to the country to make me look so good on my wedding day!!

I have used Salena multiple times for makeup, hair and also as a personal stylist (she has lots of specialties ;)). She knows her products front and back, is able to make recommendations, and knows what's popular. I wish I could hire her to do my makeup daily!

I've worked with Justine on a countless number of shoots. She always arrived early and was consistently a key asset to have on board. Justine got along with all team members, acted as a professional, and brought a good sense of humor when allowed. She's worked my shoots as a wardrobe stylist and a makeup artist and is amazing performing both tasks. When Justine is scheduled, that's one less person I have to worry about!

Ms. Cassandra is very knowledgeable about hair textures, styles and hair products. She is always prompt and on time for scheduled appointments, as well as being flexible to walk-in clientele. I have been a customer for the past 7 years and everyone always gives me compliments on my hair and ask what products I use. I do know from personal experience she uses quality hair products and she is dedicated to ensuring hair is healthy (growing) rather it’s natural or relaxed. I would recommend Ms. Cassandra to anyone searching for a new stylist and/or new to the Nashville area, this is the stylist to meet all your hair needs.

Kelly has magic hands! She's the first stylist to get my hair perfect, exactly the cut I imagined! She's a perfectionist and loves her craft, it's easy to tell she enjoys every minute. She's moved from my area but I'm seriously considering the 2.5 hour drive. It'd be worth it! I've seen her work on others as well and it's always flawless. I've always envied her makeup abilities too! She's amazing!

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.

Do I need a makeup artist for my wedding?

There are no rules around your wedding day, and that means it’s your choice whether to have a wedding makeup artist. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding makeup artist, consider the pros and cons. Some women decide against a wedding makeup artist to save money. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, which is an expense some women prefer to do without. Other women just don’t love wearing makeup. Some brides have friends or family members who are talented makeup artists willing to provide their services. If you choose not to have a wedding makeup artist, be sure to do at least two trial runs of your makeup look well before the wedding day to avoid any morning-of panic.

On the other hand, a wedding makeup artist can make the bride feel pampered and confident, giving her a flawless, fabulous look for the ceremony and reception and in wedding photos. For brides who are uncomfortable with heavy makeup, many wedding makeup artists usually excel at the natural look. Many brides consider wedding makeup part of the ritual and tradition of the ceremony, a shared experience with the entire bridal party. Ultimately your choice of whether to hire a wedding makeup artist should be based on what will make you feel most confident and happy.
