Wow! What life savers lol! Let me tell you guys that without these ladies I would've been so lost. As a new bride to be I was really overwhelmed with the many hair options out there....*sigh* I mean, hair up? down? side? WHAT! I had so many other things to plan that this at the time wasn't even a priority. I found Tres Unique Beauty Lounge a few weeks before my wedding date. I was afraid the the last minute planning on my part would be a problem but ToCarra (owner) was very nice, sweet, and most important understanding. There was no speech about the proximity of my wedding date or the inability to secure a wedding day or time with her. She was very flexible and relieved my stress. I went to the pre-trial to secure a look for hair and makeup. The hair/makeup artist she paired me up with Alex was very nice and man! she can work a contour and eye shadow like no other! lol! I did make some changes in between the pre-trial and wedding , they flexed without a problem. They (Alex and Shelby) arrived at the reception site before I even got there and made the tension of the day , at least for that part, disappear. They used quality makeup and were very supportive. My maid of honor that was worked on by Shelby looked absolutely beautiful! She color matched her perfectly, even after the last minute add on I needed for her. Alex definitely gave me a beautiful face for my wedding day. As my now husband said " Your makeup isn't dull or boring, it definitely has character! You are beautiful" .Compliments from everyone at the wedding and I'm looking forward to looking at my wedding pictures to show off the magic she created. Overall, I recommend these ladies to anyone who needs a makeup/hairstylist for any occasion. They are very professional, flexible, dependable and best of all, a comfort to those of us brides to be who need a lil TLC in the process... Thank you ladies, I am truly grateful.

Jessika did my (bride) makeup for trial and day of and two bridesmaids day of. She traveled to our location for both trial and day of. She did an excellent job. She listened to what each of us had to say about what we wanted. One bridesmaid wanted super natural, the other had completely different skin tone and hair color so wanted a little more intense. She did a fabulous job on all three of us. I couldn't have asked for a better makeup experience. Plus, she's very friendly and sweet. I highly recommend her for your big day or any other makeup needs.

Michelle was awesome to work with! She did hair/makeup for my wedding last minute, traveled to us and she did an amazing job on both my friends and I. During my makeup application, she also tweezed a few stray eyebrow hairs (oops!), applied false eyelashes and left a lipgloss so I could retouch my lipstick throughout the night. Seriously, she went above and beyond and she truly helped me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day. We all received so many compliments on how great we looked and we'll definitely find an opportunity to use her again.

Kate genuinely listened to and understood my vision for how I wanted to look for my wedding. She arrived on-time for every appt and was very professional throughout. With all the craziness of a wedding day that was going on around her, she stayed focused on me and my look. I absolutely loved my wedding day HAIR and MAKEUP and received compliments for it left and right. I would highly recommend Kate for both hair and makeup.

Haley was great! She was very flexible with my schedule and listened to what me and my girls wanted for our hair and makeup. I live out of state so was not able to come down for a trial a couple of months before, but Haley offered to meet with me the week of my wedding to take care of a trial. Then on the day of the trial we had two flat tires! She was able to rearrange her schedule and still make time for me. She did a great trial run and it really helped me figure out just what I wanted. On the day of my wedding she showed up at our house early and was ready to go when the girls arrived. She listened to all of our requests and did an amazing job. She also did hair and makeup for 5 bridesmaids, 2 moms, and me in just about 4 1/2 hours and we got out in plenty of time. All of my girls had great things to say and I loved how everything turned out. As a group of girls who do not typically wear a lot of makeup (if any), she made us all look very natural and just "fancy" versions of ourselves. Highly recommend. Thank you, Haley!!

I am a natural born blonde and I was highlighting my hair from like 17 years old to 24 years old in Cali so then I completely moved to Austin and I didn't have someone to keep highlighting my hair so I just dyed it to dark brown. I eventually just left my hair alone for almost 4 years so my natural color grew in and I decided about a year ago that I would go back to blonde but that ended up being a total nightmare cuz everyone wanted to charge me over $250 just to get me started in that direction so then I found a lady who would do it for a reasonable price but she ended up giving me a coppery color. I then found JSP and she gave me such a fair price within my budget and she consistently spoke with me whenever I had a question or concern. She was super friendly and eager to please! She really wanted me to walk out of her salon super happy with my hair color and I absolutely was happy with it! I've gotten so many compliments and i think it's safe to say that she will be my regular hair stylist from here on out!!

Creative, Professional, Attention to detail and just a wonderful person are words I use to describe Pam and Best Hair Design. I moved to Atlanta a year ago and I still have Pam do my sew ins. I tried several stylous some which are celebrity stylous and they can't compete with Pam's professional, attention to detail and respect for the clients time.

I hired Lauren last minute to braid hair for guests of our Oktoberfest (~1,000 guests). She arrived on-time with a great attitude and even a second set of hands to help her run through braids quickly. She sent me photos of her work afterward, which was really appreciated as I did not have time the day of the event to check in as much as I would have liked. I would highly recommend working with her for your beauty needs!

    I use a therapeutic approach to massage, using hot and cold treatments. This is included in the price, never at an extra charge. Aroma therapy is also included. There are never any hidden costs and you can receive discounts for your services. 15% off your first treatment, 10% when you pre-book your appointments, and if you send me 3 new clients that get a one hour Swedish or Deep Tissue massage and put your name in the client referral section of the intake form you will receive a "FREE" massage. It's that simple.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.

    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.

    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 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.
