I first met Winstead in July or August 2013 when I walked into a salon in need of some hair attention. While Winstead was working he had a video playing at his work station that showed him doing professional makeup, photo shoots and hair. I was impressed by how professional the video was and remembered feeling so blessed that I lucked into being in the chair of this "well kept secret". He did a fantastic job on my hair. Fast forward to mid October, 2014. My wedding was scheduled for Oct 25th and I had been functioning under the incorrect assumption that my daughters would help me with my hair and makeup. They finally convinced me that this event demanded the attention of a professional. I got a hold of Winstead and asked if there was any chance that he could find time to do my hair and makeup on the morning of my wedding? He was very accomodating and came to my hotel room at 7:15am with a mobile hair and makeup setup. He immediately turned on very soothing music to help me relax and less than 90 minutes later I looked absolutely incredible!! I highly recommend Winstead for ANY hair, makeup, photography or videography needs. He is absolutely amazing and northern Virginia is so lucky to have a professional of this quality!! I would not hesitate to call him again.

Mia is hands down the most amazing hair stylist I have ever had. I cannot tell you how much money I have wasted in the past going from one hair salon to another. And each time walking away thinking-this has been a total waste of my time. But not with Mia. She has taught me things about hair that no one has ever taught me. I have incredibly thick hair and I am a professional employee that works at the State Department-and looking professional is so important as I am a team lead. I went from having awful thick and disheveled looking hair-to having hair that is complimented every single day by at least one person at work. It has also taken my confidence level up a notch. I feel better about myself because finally-the way I feel inside reflects on the outside. Mia has taken the time to not only invest in my hair-but she has invested in me. What other hair stylist takes the time to drive to your house and then on top of everything else-gives you hair that lasts for the entire week! I don't have to mess with it all between Monday and Friday. That means I can get more rest, enjoy my evenings when I get home from work and just relax. Mia is a miracle worker. If you are not having her do your hair-you are seriously missing out. To top it off, she makes it a point to make sure that you are happy with the final result. She is not afraid to roll with the punches and her bubbly happy personality is sure to give you the boost that you're looking for. She is a ray of sunshine. Let me tell you-Mia is built permanently into my budget. I'd spend money on her before I would spend money on anyone else doing my hair. The last hair stylist I saw told me to watch a Youtube video to learn how to do my hair...really? That is not customer service. Mia makes it her personal quest to ensure that my hair is like my own business card-and let me tell you-I would be lost without her. She is amazing!

It took me years to finally find a professional stylist who is able to discern the correct blend of highlights and lowlights for my hair. In the past with other stylists I was left with coppery/brassy tones when my brunette hair was highlighted, and it would be only a week before I'd start to see my roots! Who wants to have to go to the hair salon every week? Cisco is the sole stylists who has been able to perfect my coloring! I trust him 100% and have always been very satisfied with the recommendations and suggestions he makes regarding color adjustments and changes to my hair style. He is extremely accommodating when it comes to scheduling my appointments and is very responsive and communicative. Cisco is right on time for every appointment and even now cuts my daughter's hair! I cannot recommend him enough ~ you will never want to go to another stylist again!

Love getting my facials through Ayesha!! She is very professional, takes her time and does am amazing job at a very decent price. I have tired Red Door and other high end salons but for the price they are not even half as good as Ayeshas! I would highly recommend trying her facials, waxing and threading services! You really do notice the difference even after the first visit!

Jasmine has been working magic with my hair for the past 8 years and she never disappoints! My hair is coarse and unmanageable but when Jasmine styles my hair I receive lots of compliments on how soft & silky it looks! She loves what she does and it really shows! A visit to Salon Jasmine is always a great way to end my day!

For years I’ve been trying to find an amazing stylist that I can trust with my hair and then I found Karla. Hands down the very best hair stylist I’ve met in a very long time. I may not be able to go to her often but when I do she slays my hair every time! My mom even goes to her now and absolutely loves going to Karla. It doesn’t even feel like I’m at the salon I feel like I’m at my best friends house! And now she does makeup which is the best! Definitely beat my face for my birthday!!! You would have to be out of your mind to not get your hair or makeup done by Karla!!!!!

    I've known shadeah since high school. I knew she was gonna develop into a stylist because she she'd always come to school withmany hairstyles. Ppl would ask who did her hair and she would say me. Ever since then I knew hair was her life! She does it ALL! Locks, weave, wigs, lashes, eyebrows and natural.But she would prefer natural hair. She gives a lot of advice. Especially for ppl who's not familiar with hair. Such as myself. I always ask her about a certain hairstyle and if it fits me. And she'll give her honest opinion. I would refer her to anybody. Men women and children and even infants lol. I'm always satisfied with her work. Always :)

    Camelia was ready for me right on time and took me into her artistically decorated chambers. She made me feel comfortable and then carefully developed my ideas for her services. She worked with great sensitivity and care until my make-up was complete and I felt like a new woman. Camelia obviously has the ability of an artist. I hope she finds an excellent path for developing her talent and can find employment in a highly respected salon.

    Sara did an amazing job doing makeup for me and my bridesmaid on the day of my wedding. (2.16.2017) She met us at the venue (we were able to get ready on site) on time, and worked carefully but yet at a great pace; she did all seven of us (plus a mother who wanted a small touch up) in about 3 hours and 30-45 mins. She brings good treats with her for the party to munch on while getting ready and music, so we were able to have fun despite the hustle and bustle going on to decorate and get the venue ready! She also uses completely natural makeup, so anyone can have their face done. My sister is very sensitive and has reactions to a lot of mainstream products, but she was fine after Sara did her makeup and the rest of the day! Our professional pictures are not in yet but I have a few here from one of my bridesmaids that give a good look at some of our faces. My friends are already very beautiful women but Sara transformed them into glamour models! I would highly recommend her! Thank you again Sara for your service :)

    Lena came to my home to do hair and makeup before a special event. I could not have been more pleased with her services from beginning to end. She made me feel listened to via email as we discussed styles and I shared photo inspiration for the look we were going for. She arrived on time, was professional, brought great, salon-quality hair tools and makeup, and provided an excellent experience. I was so pleased with the end result for my half-up do and daytime makeup and received many compliments as a result. I would recommend Lena to anyone!

    I've gotten my lashes done before at the nail salon and this experience was nothing like that. When I arrived to Ikesha's location it was very clean and organized. I laid on a massage table and she used the actual under eye tape that's designed for your sensitive under eye skin, and not regular manella tape like they did at the nail salon. Upon arrival, Ikesha was very professional and kind. She played music of my choice and was very gentle (after all it is my eye area). A week has passed since I've gotten my lashes done and I still love them! My lashes look awesome. She asked me what look I was going for and she did exactly what I asked her to do. They look so natural, I've even had people ask if they are my lashes because they look so natural. They feel light and natural as well. it will be awhile until I have to refill on my lashes but I definitely am going back!

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
