I asked Erin to do a make up and eyelash application for my best friend on her birthday. She came early even with the last minute notice and was able to provide excellent service in an adequate time as well as use impressive make up techniques. Side note: I always tell my friend that she looks like a model therefore she should try out for America's Top Model. She never listened but by the time Erin finished, she was no longer doubting me and my friend looked like she was ready to partake in a glamorous, high-end fashion magazine photo shoot. I appreciate Erin's services, it was definitely a highlight of my friend's birthday and highly recommend her. I certainly will hire her for any future events or special occasions.

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.

She was fantastic! All of my bridesmaids hair looked fabulous, my hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. She was able to do everything from just a few inspiration photos. She was punctual and very easy to work with and she was able to do my mothers makeup even though she wasn’t originally asked to when hired. Great quality, great qualifications, great pricing, AND able to do both hair and makeup.

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!

Martha is absolutely amazing! She is talented and understands how to elevate each woman’s features. She understood how to apply my make up for two different events one that was for professional photos and one for a wedding and in both instances the make up was very different but definitely catered to my skin tone! She has a gift and can see beauty in everyone!

I was flying to Virgina for my brothers engagement party. I needed a make up artist and a hair stylist for 5 girls! Everyone that I was contacting were charging me an arm and a leg! But then I found Imahn, she was helpful, professional and talented! She found me a hairstylist as well, within 5 minutes too! We all loved her work, she didn't overdue the make up, she listened to our requests and was detailed with everything she did! And she was kind and patient with us! I recommend her to everyone and make sure to request a hair stylist as well! Thank you, Imahn for making us all glow on our special occasion.

She was absolutely a professional and amazing stylist. She was very patience, creative, and sensational. She has done a wonderful job to help me becoming one of the most beautiful brides. I was very glad to find her from Facebook. She is not only a skillful stylist but she is also very well knowledgeable on cosmetics and skincare. Her informative advices saved me a lot of headaches during my wedding preparation. Check out my photos. I hope sharing my experience with Thao can help you find your right stylist. Good luck!

Jasmine was wonderful to work with! She did an amazing job on my blonde highlights and cut my husband’s hair also. We’ve been confined to our home as I just had a newborn. She made it super easy and I would suggest her to everyone. I’m looking forward to finally having a local hair stylist.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
