Jada and her makeup artists were absolutely wonderful. Their makeup was flawless, and they were upbeat and happy the entire time. Jada was very professional in all her communications, and made all of us feel at ease. We had six makeups to do, of different ages and complexions, yet all of our makeups were equally well done and amazing.

We LOVED having Nyssa as our makeup/hair stylist. She arrived right on time and was ready to get started. She did the bride’s hair and makeup, the MOB’s hair and the MOG’s makeup. The Bride showed her a picture of what the she wanted and we were so happy that her hair looked exactly like she requested. Nyssa is a joy to be around and we enjoyed getting ready with her. She has a sweet, calm, stress free personality. Highly recommend her!

Mari did my hair and makeup, plus my sister and mother's. And she did fantastic. At our first meeting I told her my hair refuses to hold curls.. which proved to be true yet again even with all her mad skills and equipment. But she did a great job compromising. My hair looked great, and she was very diligent with how she works. Fantastic job! Would definitely use her again.

Marina is an incredibly talented makeup artist. I was referred to her by my friend that had her makeup done for her wedding a year ago. She looked absolutely gorgeous and her makeup stayed all night. Marina was punctual, personable, listens and gives you her honest opinion. I felt so glamorous and flawless when she was done. Could be happier and excited for my wedding day!

I loved working with Jenn Brosch! She did my wedding makeup and she also did my bridal party makeup and it was absolutely amazing! I couldn't ask for a better MUA, she's so professional, knowledgable, and kind. She gave me tips on my skin to be prepared for my big day and she even suggested products I should use specifically for my skin type. Jenn is so talented, you definitely need to book her for your wedding day!

Not only did my makeup look AMAZING , but after finding out the hairstylist canceled at the very last minute Diana offered to help out immediately with out any hesitation! She was beyond wonderful and I would most defiantly recommend her services to anyone looking to get their makeup done professionally. She made the whole process easily and not at all stressful from our initial conversation, to the consult, to the day of. She surpassed all my expectations; if there were more than 5 stars she totally earned them! Oh and the value (price point) was great. It goes to show just because something is affordable doesn't mean its lacking on quality.

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.

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.

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.
