Working with Winstead Barnes and his staff completed our amazing Miss United States experience. Winstead was very accommodating and responsive. We received Kristine Kaliebe as our hair/makeup artist and she was so fantastic we requested her the next day. She saw the vision we were aiming for and perfected it with her skill and talent. My daughter and I highly recommend working with this team and we will definitely use them again if the opportunity is present.

We can't begin to thank Teresa enough for her outstanding work during my teenage daughter's first photo shoot. From her instruction on styling during the days leading up to the shoot, to her friendly personality which put us completely at ease right away, to the complete artistry with which she completed my daughter's hair and makeup, Teresa was an absolute pleasure to work with. She easily created the perfect hairstyle and makeup look for each outfit, and was right there to jump in for touch-ups throughout the day. We could not have asked for a better experience, and we hope that we are lucky enough to work with Teresa again soon!

Francisca is amazing! She was prompt and did a fantastic job. I couldn't believe how quick she was. She is so friendly and easy going and informs you what she's doing throughout the whole process. She's a sweet and extremely talented makeup artist! She even let me know what ringlights she uses when she takes photos. I go to the DC area often, so I will definitely be using her services again!

Roma is a wonderful makeup artist! I looked flawless on the day of my trial and she was definitely to one to pick for my wedding day! She did not only my makeup but all of my bridesmaids as well as my mother. She is able to tailor everyone's makeup to what they want whether its over the top or super subtle! Book her now before she's taken :)

I had an Indian wedding and Brishna did my makeup and hair for Mehendi, wedding ceremony and reception. Brishna did a good job with my makeup and hair for all the functions. My wedding veil was literally 20 pounds and she did a great job with fixing it, and it stayed at the same place for the entire wedding. I had many questions regarding my wedding look leading up to the wedding but Brishna always made herself available to answer my questions. Thanks for all the help. I really appreciate it.

To the best makeup artist on this planet. The one thing I love most about Erica is that the first thing I said to her was that "I want to look like me in my pictures". She not only made me look like me but even better." I have had my face done several times by Erica and never ever was I not satisfied. Her work, and gift is OUTSTANDING.

I hired Ashley to do my makeup for my Pre-Wedding photo shoot (similar to an engagement shoot but longer and with more outfits) and she did an amazing job! Although our session ended up being shorter than we had expected (due to unforeseen circumstances), Ashley was able to do my makeup perfectly in such a short amount of time! I can't even imagine how much better it would have been if we had the full hour and a half. I usually don't wear makeup on a daily basis, and I was a bit worried about how I would look with a full face of makeup (false lashes and all), but she did a great job of making me still look me. Don't hesitate to hire her if you are in the need of an great makeup artist~

Our (me and my daughter) appointment was at 4pm and she arrived a couple a minutes BEFORE 4pm so she is very punctual, which is important when you have social engagements. Her professionalism was very apparent from the onset. She insured she had her "cleaning materials" such as wipes, etc. for all her products. She was creative and evaluated my face prior to beginning any application. When applying the makeup she showed attention to detail. It was a very calming, attentive yet FUN experience. I didn't have any complaints; however, if I did I am sure they would have been addressed immediately because of her respectful nature. Normally, I do ,not wear a lot of makeup but really liked looking at my face in the mirror! This is great makeup for special occasions such as weddings, fashion shows and Girls Night Out events and anytime you want to feel special. Thank you Ms Vanessa!

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!!

So incredibly talented! She listens to her clients requests while also offering thoughtful recommendations! She’s great for special events if you want something super glam, but also can provide a super natural glow! Every time she’s done my makeup, she’s taught me lessons along the way that I have applied to my daily makeup routine. Will never go to another artist again.. period.

Chei’la is an amazing makeup artist and hairstylist. She is extremely professional and talented. She actually shows up on time and is swift with her work so you won’t be sitting in the chair long. Her demeanor is very personable and when you talk with her, you will feel like you’ve known her forever. I will certainly book with her again and let everyone I know to book with her as well!

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.
