Linda is very talented! She came to my house promptly, and was very personable. She did a soft, natural day-time hair and makeup look for my baby shower. I will be hiring her again for any future day or night events I have.

This was my first time using Thumbtack. I will use it again as well as Dawn. She immediately answered all my questions. I wanted to make sure I set the expectations of my hair, makeup, time, and location. Before I clicked hire I wanted to know every detail and she explained it. She also gave advice regarding what I should look for that I hadn't covered in my original questions since she noticed I was concerned as an amateur with this service. She was honest about her updos hair skills. We shared photos to be clear she could achieve my desired look. She did a great job. She was amazing at my make up. I always get my make up done for special events and Dawn did better then anyone has ever done at the best rate! I wanted a little more glam and drama and I think she achieved that perfectly.

I hired Lara and her beauty team for my wedding and I thought they were awesome. In my group we had 1 Bride, 4 bridesmaids, 1 mother of the groom and a flowergirl to have their hair and makeup done. Lara and the beauty team consisted of 4 stylist/artist. They arrived early, were extremely professional and at the end, everyone loved the way they looked! Several of my bridesmaids and myself even agreed that Lara and her team were the best beauty team we had ever experienced. I highly recommend them for any special event :)

Jen is such an amazing artist and I hired her for my bridal portraits and my wedding makeup. I could not believe how stunning and natural she made me look. She is a true artist in her craft and is more than reasonably priced. If you are looking for someone to do your wedding makeup, makeup for a photoshoot or anything else - you MUST HIRE JEN! She will take care of you. As a hairstylist myself, she will be my number one makeup artist I recommend in Houston and nearby places. Thanks Jen for helping make my special day PERFECT!!!

Sandra gave me a makeup tutorial that covered a progression of makeup techniques from daily wear to a night out. Leading up to the appointment she confirmed and was easy to reach. She arrived on time and well equipped with lighting and makeup. She was very patient and kind, taught me correct application methods, and explained various tips to correct my application errors. She used a combination of my products and hers and made economical product recommendations for items I did not have. She did not rush through the lesson and made me feel very comfortable practicing techniques. I highly recommend Sandra if you want learn about makeup application and/or if you want a professional makeup artist for a special event.

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 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.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
