A wedding was planned for saturday (1/23) during th blizzard so was VERY last minute changed to friday (1/22). The hair salon originally planned to do 5 brides maids and bridal hair never returned our call or made accommodations for us. I was approached by a colleague of winstead who immediately responded to my thumbtack post. I told her we needed someone tomorrow morning at 6am--at this time it was like 5pm thursday night, giving us only about 12 hrs to find someone!!! She reaches out to winstead who offered to come out at 6am! I was initially worried if he would even show up so last minute, if he was skilled enough, etc. i was BEYOND impressed!!! Winstead showed up early, prepared, did all the bridesmaids hair and the bride, and completed them all in time. As a wedding planner I make sure to work with people who are trustworthy, professional, and are always going to do their best and be the best. I would definitely work with winstead again. His work was AMAZING! All the girls hair looked perfect, exactly how they wanted it, it stayed put through the entire night and still looked flawless. I hate the old fashioned typical prom-looking hair styles and trust me, winsteads work was not like that. I couldnt have asked for anyone better and he was AMAZING! I 110% recommend him to anyone!

Jen/JMDesinz was awesome. We had a great time at my trial and then the day of my court house wedding. She listened to what I wanted and we worked together to make it right. She encouraged me to keep my natural curl (which I initially wanted) and actually styled my curly hair. Some of you curly girls know, this is no easy feat. (I've had my hair done multiple times, asking to use my natural curl and every time they straightened my hair and then curled it.) Jen was amazing. We ended up doing a smooth, sleek style due to my now husband's preference and my vision. She uses air brush make-up which I had never tried before. I really liked it. I learned a lot from her about makeup and styling. Her schedule worked so well with mine and she was very easy to get in touch with and swap ideas. Having her over felt like having a friend over who happened to be an excellent, experienced hair and make-up artist. I highly recommend Jen/JMDesignz and will hire her again and again! (Sorry photos are not close up, but there are a couple angles of the hair style.)

Priscilla and her hair assistant did such an amazing job for my big day. From the get-go, between communicating quickly and efficiently to setting up the trial on very short notice as my first one did not go very well, Priscilla was amazing. She not only listened to exactly what I wanted, she wasn't afraid to tell me what would look best. And I'm so glad that I listened. The trial went amazing, and she was able to transform that same look on my big day. I felt absolutely beautiful. She also did my maid of honor or come out as well as my mother's make up. She even made room for an ad The trial went amazing, and she was able to transform that same look on my big day. I felt absolutely beautiful. She also did my maid of honor or come out as well as my mother's make up. She even made room for a last minute add on. We all loved how quickly and efficiently she moved, as well as her hair assistant who was amazing as well. We even were finished early and able to enjoy some champagne and relax. Her hair assistant also gave me the exact look I was going for. I would truly recommend Priscilla for any event. Her work is absolutely amazing!

Fran did an amazing job! She was professional from the very start and went above and beyond to find someone to style my hair as well. The day before the event the hair stylist had a family emergency and had to back out but Fran kept me updated and tried to find someone else for me. When she could not find anyone she did my hair herself since I just wanted something simple. I was so happy with the results and everyone at the party could not believe how beautiful I looked. I was receiving complements all night long. I will definitely use her again and highly recommend her.

I found an ad on Craiglist for a make up artist. I had a black tie wedding to attend, I lived in Utah and was flying into Washington DC. I contacted Karla 2 months prior and booked her for 2 days. She also gave me a referral for my hair to get done. On the 1st day she met me at my hotel downtown. I asked for dramatic and she made me feel like a rockstar. She also unexpectedly made my 71 year old mother feel pretty by doing her eye make up. On the 2nd day Karla met me at the referrals salon where she transformed me into a queen ready for the ball. She was able to hide my scars from cancer and match my skin that was really pale from radiation. She is not only an awesome make up artist but she is a really nice person! Very personable and accommodating. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!!

Tanya is amazing! If you are looking for make up & hair styles for you & your Bridesmaids, Flower girls, Mothers this is your pro! She went out of her way to come to our home to do a make up & hair trial. We knew right away she was perfect! I got some hair extensions prior to the wedding, the day of the Wedding a lot was chaotic but now our hair & make up :) It went amazingly smooth & we all looked beautiful! Tanya stayed with me for the whole wedding & even fixed my hair & make up for the photos at the Chapel. My only regret is that she couldn't attend our reception because she had another Wedding the next day. Tanya is passionate about her work & if I need my hair & make up done again she is my girl! Thank you for everything Tanya!! (PS I got our photos back, you & I look fantastic!) Love, Chrissy & Joe

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!

I hired this company for hair and make-up for my wedding. They arrived on time (if not early :-) ) and got right to work. Both the hair and make-up artists were able to understand my bridesmaids and my visions and ensure that we looked our best. They accommodated all of my requests and did so with a smile. I would fully recommend this company and plan to use them again in the future for other events.

Would highly recommend this artist!!! She is so amazing! You will not find value like this anywhere else- trust, I'm a bargain shopper. She was very accommodating, even though we had previously agreed to specific times. She did an awesome make up job on my 2 daughters. And the hair - I would have paid a fortune elsewhere for those amazing styles. When I requested a change of style for myself, she was more than happy to facilitate. Do yourself a favor, book THIS artist while you can! She's Amazing!

Lina is amazing!! She is super responsive and much better at keeping up with things than I was! I am not one to normally wear makeup so she was a huge help to me in figuring out what would look best for me on my wedding day, and I couldn't be happier with the results. All of my bridesmaids looked wonderful as well. She is also fantastic with hair! She did my hair and makeup for a Christmas party and it was amazing! I highly recommend Lina for top notch service and a perfect look for your special day!!

Sara did a very nice job with my hair and makeup before a photo shoot. She was professional, accommodating, and super pleasant. She is also very honest. I accidentally overpaid for the job and once we realized what happened later in the day, Sara immediately refunded the difference. I will definitely call her back in the future for her services when I’m in town.

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.
