Marisa did my makeup and hair for my maternity shoot. She was extremely sweet and made me feel very comfortable. She was prompt and on time even for my early 6:30 start! I would definitely use her again and recommend her for any occasion.

OK. Bia is one of the most professional makeup artists I have ever met. Not only is she wonderful at what she does, but also listens to her client. Her makeup arsenal is filled with products that look amazing on skin. I am usually hesitant when a makeup artists does my foundation and brows, but Bia's expertise allows her to never make mistakes. She did me and my sister's prom makeup (pics included!) and everyone kept asking who did it! They marveled at how glowy my face was and the precision of my brows. Overall, I HIGHLY URGE anyone and everyone to HIRE BIA. Don't regret not allowing her to do your makeup.... Thanks Bia and my sister and I love you!

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.

Ana did my hair and makeup for an event and she was absolutely phenomenal! I showed her a picture of how I want my makeup and she did it better than the picture. My hair stayed in place for both day and night festivities. She accommodated me and drove to my place without having to charge a fee and she was so kind! She had all the right makeup tools in case you have sensitive skin, oily skin, dry skin etc. - she comes prepared!

I am a wedding photographer. I have photographed hundreds of weddings in the past 15 years. Because of this I know that cameras will pick up any sort of makeup disaster, badly applied foundation or miss applied lipstick! One thing that I was worried about is the caking eye makeup that is a surefire way to highlight every fine line and wrinkle. Even brides with no visible wrinkles end up with these lines from makeup quit often. Yarie was amazing and my makeup did not cake, my foundation did not slid down my face, leave lines or smudge all night. It was also not over done. I loved it and her. I will recommend her to all of my brides and to anyone else looking for Makeup Artistry!

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.

Codie, was by far the best makeup artist I have ever used! I had a work party to attend and my other makeup artist cancelled on me the day before, luckily I was able to get glammed by my super hero Codie! She honestly saved me from looking a wreck, I was grateful that she could come to me on short notice and then she exceeded my expectations with her makeup skills and personality! I will definitely recommend using her if you need makeup, I will next time for sure!

Pamela is by far the best hair artist I have come across! She is worth every dollar and then some. Once you allow her to work her magic you will be forever changed. She did my sew-in and it's seriously perfect! It lays flat to my head, no crazy looking part, and the cut is flawless. As soon as I left getting it done a stranger begged for her number (this individual was not African American). So stop wasting your money with other people who claim to know what they are doing.

Heather and her team did an absolutely beautiful job with both hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids! Their organization was on point - I had a large group, and they made sure to keep us moving in a timely manner to ensure we were all done in time. And the work they did was amazing! Everyone had different ideas of what they wanted their hair and makeup to look like, and they all delivered! I was so pleased with the overall experience of working with Heather and her team. I'd highly recommend working with her!

Her pricing is awesome along with her work, that was another reason which inclined me to hire her. She will satisfy you before she leaves and never rushes you.

    I’ve worked with Jonathan with several photo and video shoots over the last three years, and there are several reasons I keep inviting him back to the sets. He’s punctual, friendly with staff and models, a makeup and skincare expert, always willing to help beyond his job duties, and attentive. He is the model by which other cosmetic artists should mold themselves after.

      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.

      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.

      How do you choose the right makeup artist for your wedding?

      A wedding makeup artist can ensure a flawless look on your big day. Finding the perfect person isn’t all about price, though. Here are tips for choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding:

      • Research before reaching out. Wedding makeup artists should have an online presence with portfolios of their work. Find someone with an aesthetic you love.
      • Read reviews. You want a wedding makeup artist who’ll be on time, do beautiful work, and add a positive vibe to your day. Pay attention if previous clients report bad experiences with a makeup artist.
      • Consider skin tones. If your bridal party has a range of skin tones, make sure your wedding makeup artist and assistants are experienced and talented working with everyone.
      • Is your top pick available on your date? If so, put down a deposit to secure their services.
      • Confirm rates and payment. Clearly discuss prices and payment plans, and sign a detailed contract so there are no surprises on your wedding day.

      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.
