Candice was absolutely FANTASTIC to work with! From our consultation to the wedding day, she was professional, punctual, and pleasant to be around. She was so easy to communicate with and responded to all emails and texts in a timely manner. Candice eased my anxiety about having a full application service done, considering I'm not an everyday makeup "wear-er." She made me feel like a chocolate porcelain doll on both my bridal shower day and wedding day. I had five bridesmaids that received full application services as well, and she exceeded all of their expectations. She matched up foundation colors perfectly, and really took her time figuring out which products worked best for each lady. I do not have a before and after shot of the wedding day glam, but I do have a before and after shot of my bridal shower look, bridal party, and me after the ceremony with my now husband. I am SO glad I stumbled upon her on Thumbtack! If you need a fabulous makeup artist, and this is coming from someone who does not know much about makeup and has many reservations about makeup, go with Candice. You will not be disapppointed! Thank you Candice for being apart of a day that I will never forget!

Malissa was my makeup artist for myself and my bridesmaids on my wedding, and I could not have asked for a better experience! She was wonderful at making us all feel comfortable and relaxed. She is knowledgeable about what brides need for their wedding day, and used quality products that had me looking fabulous all day long.

      Danielle was recommended to me by a friend of a friend for makeup and hair for weddings. I contacted her and she responded ASAP and set up a trial AT MY APARTMENT (which was just amazing... it was a spa day and I didn't have to go anywhere). I loved her trial and I hired her for the following year. She drove three hours to Jackson, NH from Boston and was perfectly on time and ready to go before I was even fully awake. I could not have been more thrilled with what she did!! My hair and makeup were absolutely perfect. She also did my bridesmaids hair for the big day..... everyone looked like they hopped out of a BHLDN website (soft romantic up do's with loose twists and braids framing their faces perfectly). I would highly recommend Danielle for any event large or small, she was the perfect person to have there that morning. She kept me calm and collected with her sweet personality and she was making me laugh so hard it was sometimes hard to keep a straight face for lipstick. I have attached a few photos, hire this girl if you want to worry about one less thing on your big day! Xox Alycia

      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 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.

      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 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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
