Priscilla was on time, very sweet, and gave me exactly what I asked for (hair and makeup). My photos turned out beautiful. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a professional.

I messaged Noel that I had an idea in mind for a photo shoot and asked her if she could help me make my face match the concept. She instantly agreed and did an amazing job, including researching pictures to match the look and ideas to help me with the shoot. She did a great job. I had suggestions and she took them into consideration and made the look work for me and the shoot. She's the only one I call. Can't wait for her to do my face for my wedding :D

Carolyn did my 16 yr old daughter's formal makeup. She rarely wears makeup and had little skills. Carolyn arrived early and her makeup outfit and lighting was impressive. She was very easy going and had provided several photos in advance to give her some ideas. She went to work and was very good at providing just the look we wanted. We both were looking for something slightly glamorous but age appropriate. She nailed it! She worked up a custom lip color and left her with a supply to do touch ups. We were both pleased with work and service and give her our highest reviews. Thank you again, Carolyn!

Nyssa was very patient with me, and made sure both my hair and makeup were exactly what I wanted for my wedding day! We took things step-by-step, and she did a great job asking questions and making recommendations as-needed. She is very knowledgeable about makeup and hair and can give you tips on products to use beyond your event or photo shoot, which I personally appreciate. On top of all that, she's incredibly responsive and sweet! Highly, highly recommend Nyssa if you want to feel beautiful, inside and out.

I was looking to hire a Make up artist for hair and make up for a formal graduation dinner. Generally, I'm a wash and wear kind of person, and I have never consistently worn make up so I knew I needed help for something this fancy. Iman requested photos, which I hadn't even thought about, but was such a good idea to help me really think about what would work for me. Also, she came to my place! And, she arrived early, which really put my mind at ease. In under an hour, she had me ready, hair, eye lashes, and everything and I looked amazing! She was so nice and professional that I had fun getting ready and felt totally confident. Bonus: She was super nice about my dog hanging out with us, too.

I really love my hair and I also admire how she took time our her busy schedule to do for me a hairstyle that takes up to 16 hours to complete. Jessica works well with her clients and is very professional at what she does. From the moment you sit down to schedule an appointment to you actually being in the salon, if you have any questions about your hair before or during your she will answer all of your questions. Shes great.

As I was preparing for my best friends wedding i freaked out when I remembered I hadn't found anyone to do my makeup!! I immediately seeked Kendra and she came through like a BOSS. I traveled from NC and Kendra found a location to make it convient so that I could make it back in time for photos for the wedding. The location was at a salon that was clean and welcoming. It took about 45 minutes for Kendra to complete my flawless look (lashes, brows, foundation, eye shadow, lips). She was prepared, she recommended products, she explained how you should use certain products. She was amazingggggg!!!!!!! On top of all that, her fee was affordable!!!! I received soooooo many compliments on my makeup!!! My makeup lasted for 17 hours. LITERALLY, and I did not want to wash it off!! I would DEF reach out to Kendra in the future to meet my makeup needs!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!

      Tiquila literally RESCUED us! She was available super last minute when my original hair stylist had to cancel. She drove quite the distance to be there for us, and arrived right on time. She worked quickly, and was able to work with all of our very different types of hair! She was even able to secure a hairpiece AND veil into my ultra-thin hair while I wore simple curls (no easy feat!). I highly recommend her!! She is so sweet, and her work is beautiful. My only regret is not having her also do hair for the flower girls as well! 😅😉 Highly recommend! ☺️

        We hired her to do my daughter's wedding in New York. Although there were professionals in the area, after seeing the photos of what she was capable of, and speaking with her on the phone and gauging her professionalism, we went with her. She traveled to NYC, stayed in the hotel, was available for hair and make up for the rehearsal dinner. We all looked fabulous. The day of the wedding, she was on her feet for about 7 hours. She did every bridesmaid, the mother of the bride, the flower girl, and of course, the bride. We all looked magazine ready. I truly recommend her skills, what ever your beauty needs are. She is thoroughly dedicated, and passionate about her profession.

        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.

        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.
        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
