Teresa recently worked with my teenage daughter on a modeling photo shoot. It was my daughter’s first experience with a long photo shoot involving several makeup, hair and wardrobe changes. Teresa’s upbeat personality and professionalism put my daughter completely at ease and made this a very fun and memorable experience for us. She kept everyone’s energy level up during the shoot and took care of every single detail for us. Teresa has a wonderful eye for color and style. She really knows what works in front of the camera. Teresa spent time with us before the shoot carefully planning out the wardrobe, hair and makeup. We could not be happier with the results. She is extremely talented at helping an individual look their personal best and her ability to transform a model across a range of “looks” is very impressive. Teresa is a gifted stylist and we look forward to working with her again. I highly recommend Teresa’s services.

Francisca is an amazing lady. She was extremely reliable, professional and prepared. I had a photo shoot where a model needed her makeup done. Francisca was quick to communicate with me prior to the photo shoot to reduce my anxiety. She also listened closely to the type of look that I was going for. Her kit and the way she applied the makeup was sterile and she was at the event very early (she is more than punctual!). I will definitely hire her again. What great talent. Thanks Fran!

I enjoyed the process of reviewing all of my summer wardrobe for keepers and rejects. Lynne so efficiently combined my separates, taking photos throughout. She had such a great eye for selecting necklaces and shoes which enhanced an outfit. She taught me about various colors which combined or clashed with my skin tone. Overall, I feel more confident and less confused when gazing upon my closet contents; well worth the price.

I booked Roma for my engagement photo shoot. She arrived right on time (early to be exact). She was ready to rock n roll upon arrival. She did my makeup for my photo shoot. She did a fantastic job!! To be honest we started at 7am this morning and here it is 10+ hours later, and my makeup is still intacted perfectly! The quality of service I received from Roma went above and beyond my standards, and I am very happy with the final outcome! Great value and very professional! I cannot wait to work with Roma in the future. I highly recommend her! Thank you Roma!

I was nervous to get my makeup done for my prom because I had a very particular look I was going for. I was recommended to Maryam by a few friends. After looking at her photos on Instagram, i definitely trusted her. Upon arriving, she seated me and asked me what I preferred and was very helpful in achieving the look I wanted. She made sure before doing anything that it was what I wanted. She made me look beautiful and I couldn’t have been happier with the amazing work she did. She was extremely patient and careful in making sure I looked exactly the way l wanted to. Definitely recommend her!! She is so sweet and great at her job!

My styling experience was "top notch". Jammie really got to know me before we even met in person. At our first meeting she took great notes and really listened to what I was saying about my style hopes and dreams. Once the time came for me to meet her in the dressing room I was shocked to see ALL the styles she had pulled together. I mean EVERYTHING from my wishlist was right there in front of me. We tried on things I NEVER would have picked for myself and they ended up being my favorite outfits! Let's just say there is a reason we need a professional stylist. So all in all great experience and I recommend her to anyone looking to update their wardrobe or just a fresh new take on their current closet :)

I had the incredible experience of working with Benafsha Ghowrwal, a powerhouse in the area of women's styling. Through Benafsha's selection of clothing for my glamour portrait session, I looked and felt like a diva. In her welcoming and down-to-earth way, she made me feel right at home throughout the photoshoot. It felt like I was hanging out with one of my girlfriends - trying on clothes, doing makeup, and taking pictures. Benafsha brought gorgeous outfits for me to try on, taking the time to pin things when they were too long or too loose. Throughout my photo session, Benafsha adjusted my outfits, ensuring that the photos came out as beautifully as I looked and felt. Benafsha worked seamlessly with my photographer who knew me well and who gave Benafsha some of my background information: my age, size, the fact that I worked full-time outside of the home and was a mom of three. My photographer also showed Benafsha a photo of me. With that basic information, Benafsha chose beautiful outfits that were incredibly flattering. She also talked me through the types of clothes I should look for as a professional woman who is petite. Talent, professionalism, patience, and perfection - those are the words that come to mind when I think of Benafsha. What a gift it was to wear such beautiful clothes that enhanced my beauty inside and out and work with such a wonderful stylist like Benafsha.

Lina was absolutely amazing! I had a large bridal party and was having a hard time finding a hair stylist that wouldn’t break the bank. Lina went above and beyond to make sure the bridesmaids hair and my hair was styled amazingly! Loved every angle of the hair styles and how personalized she was!

I got my hair cut and colored. I have a short style and usually go to a barber shop where one stylist cuts then another does the color. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience w BJohn bc it was one person throughout and she kept checking in to make sure I was happy w what was going on. She was also efficient w her time and professional the entire time as well as checked in a couple days later to make sure I still loved it. BJohn was also great w working around me and my toddlers schedule (even when I had to bring my kid along). I absolutely loved my cut and color and haven't stopped getting compliments even by strangers comparing me to a certain celeb :) it was also great that she was able to give recommendations on products to use like the shampoo to keep the color! I appreciate the work and will definitely return!!

Nicola is a phenomenal make up artist! We did a trial for my wedding before my engagement party and she came on site fully prepared and made me feel really comfortable. We exchanged some photos of makeup looks before the trial and she was able to match the look while using colors that complimented my skin tone. I got a ton of compliments throughout the night (my makeup did not budge!) and felt gorgeous - can't wait for the big day!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do image consultants do?

Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion, such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion either using either what the client owns or taking a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, your lifestyle, and what you hope to present to the world, and will then determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit one area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve. Personal shopping is another service that image consultants provide. After an image assessment, they can either shop with you or shop on your behalf to find you key pieces you need.

How do I find a personal stylist?

To find a fashion consultant, start by browsing portfolios online. Styling is a visual art, so finding a fashion consultant who fits the style you desire is key. Great personal stylists aren’t confined to one style, but if you’re seeking a hipper, fashion-forward vibe, you’d do well to find someone with a modern portfolio, while a fashion consultant with a consistently refined style could be a better fit if you’d prefer a more conservative look. Reading reviews is also helpful for learning more about the fashion consultant. Research their training, background and years of experience. After reviewing websites and Instagram accounts, meet with the stylist in person to learn how well they fit your personality; some fashion consultants offer a free phone consultation prior to hiring. Before hiring, make sure you clearly understand their terms of service and payment.

What is a personal shopper?

Personal shoppers take the pain out of having good fashion. Personal shoppers are paid professionals who work with women, men or children who need style assistance. If you are stuck in a fashion rut, are unsure how to dress in a way that flatters your body, need to revamp your image, or want a more professional career look, personal shoppers can help. Personal shoppers identify the look their client wants to achieve and purchase the necessary clothing and accessories to achieve it. The process often begins with an initial consultation with the client to understand their style goals. This consultation may include a closet “audit,” an assessment of the client’s current wardrobe to see what items can be eliminated and what must be purchased to achieve the desired style.

The client and the personal shopper can shop together, selecting items as a team. The personal shopper may also shop on behalf of the client, then bring all items to the client for a final decision. A third option is pre-shopping, where the personal shopper reaches the store(s) ahead of the client and sets aside clothing for the client to try on, expediting the whole process — a win for anyone who hates spending time in the mall. Personal shoppers can also be hired for one-time events such as weddings, vacations or birthdays. You can also enlist a personal shopper to do your gift shopping for you. Overall, a personal shopper is an investment in making good style choices.

What is a fashion consultant?

A fashion consultant is a paid professional who will advise you on what to wear and how to wear it to fit your desired lifestyle or career goals. A fashion consultant can provide many services including personal shopping, closet audits, beauty consultations, style consultations and ongoing seasonal services. A fashion consultant often has a design or fashion background (although this is not required) and an innate sense of style. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the colors, cuts and designs we think suit us. A fashion consultant comes in with fresh eyes and provides constructive feedback to guide your style choices.

During your initial meeting, your fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and learn what you hope to achieve. They’ll identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you how to wear items together. Many consultants create style lookbooks for their clients explaining things like exactly which shoes to wear with what pants and how to accessorize each look. Fashion consultants are a great option for people who are updating their style due to age, career changes or body changes, or who are just ready for a new look and feel. Most fashion consultants charge by the hour, with some offering packages and others working from a retainer.

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.
