I hired Marcella to do makeup and hair for 3 of us for my daughter's wedding last weekend. She answered my inquiries very quickly. Her prices are competitive. Prior to the wedding, she was very open to questions and photos from Pinterest boards :) she arrived at our house on-time, was completely self-sufficient in setting up all of her equipments and supplies. And most importantly, she is super talented! All 3 of us were very happy with her work! Thanks so much Marcella!

Tracy was a delight in all the chaos of wedding planning & the wedding day itself. Being fairly particular about my own hair/makeup because of unique features, I was really wary when looking for a hair/makeup artist for my wedding day & though I was skeptical for awhile, Tracy was always very prompt in responding to my concerns/thoughts whether it was through email or texts. We had a scheduling issue initially for my bridal trial for hair/makeup, but she was able to communicate with me that everything would work out on the wedding day (seeing as I am an out-of-town bride) as I went flying out the door to make another wedding appointment that weekend; I felt 100x better after meeting in person & really going over what I wanted versus what also would be necessary to come out in photos. I am pretty sure Tracy & I have an email thread 100 emails long with me asking about various products, styles, & consultation just because the world of hair extensions & the like were so foreign to me (thank you sooo much for the recommendation!). Tracy will tell you how it is & help you achieve what you are looking for the best way she can & also understands the nature of a budget! She was SO helpful in this, on top of everything else. On the wedding day itself, Tracy brought an extra artist than what we agreed to, which was very helpful in terms of timing & really appreciated. We all had a blast getting ready with Tracy & her team & my bridesmaids adored her; she was very forthcoming about trying new styles out & how we could achieve looks by going through photos & playing around when necessary--it was very appreciated. All my bridesmaids & myself loved our hair & makeup (with suggestions given when we were unsure or hesitant about boldness, but reassured about our decisions especially based on photography); they were of all various styles, yet, all complemented each other as one cohesive group. I've never felt so beautiful after a hair/makeup session & am so satisfied with my entire experience with Tracy & her team; it really felt like a bunch of girlfriends getting ready for a special day, Tracy & her team included :) Thank you so much for trumping my fears of hiring hair/makeup artists, especially on a day that really counted! xx

I hired Divya as my hair and makeup artist for my wedding. She also did the hair for 7 of my bridesmaids. I could not be happier with her work and she did such a beautiful job on both me and my bridesmaids. Divya was always professional and responsive and really understood my vision. As a bride who doesn't wear a lot of makeup, there were definitely (multiple) times when I would change my mind about the makeup or be nervous about the final look. Divya was always patient with me and listened to my concerns and I could not be happier with the final result. She was completely professional on the day of, even after we got delayed for the reception by almost an hour, and worked quickly to get everyone ready on time. Along with being extremely talented, Divya also has a charming personality and is easy to talk to - all my bridesmaids lover her as well and she did a phenomenal job at everyone's hair. I highly recommend Divya for all your hair and makeup needs.

Michelle is a pro. I've had many makeup artists work on me in the past, and she is one of the best. She has great technique, uses superior brands, and acts super professional. Because she is so good at what she does, she charges accordingly. Don't be discouraged by her rates. You definitely get what you pay for. And believe me, for something as important as a wedding, you do not want to skimp on makeup. You will not regret hiring Michelle. I can guarantee you will look gorgeous! Thanks Michelle!! You are awesome!

I happened to be in the area, and was desperate for a cut and color. Nobody could get me in except for Mindy. I wanted a complicated cut so I needed someone who knew what she was doing. I'm also very picky about my color. Mindy was gracious and listened well. I could not have been more pleased. Usually I have to wait a while to figure out if I like it or not, but I was immediately excited about my fabulous hair! The color was amazing! And she weaved three colors in. The cut was so professional and beautiful. I left her place feeling like a new woman. Whenever I'm in her area, I look her up.

Julia was an absolute dream to work with! She traveled to my Airbnb to do both my hair and makeup for my wedding. She did a phenomenal job, striking the perfect balance of listening to me and making my vision happen, and also offering her own wonderful ideas. A main concern of mine was that I knew I would cry at some point during the wedding, and I wanted to make sure my makeup would last through the tears. And indeed, I cried during the ceremony, got sweaty on the dance floor, got my face covered in cake... but my makeup seriously looked just as perfect at 4am when I was removing it as it did when Julia first put it on! Perhaps even more important than Julia’s talent with hair and makeup though, is her lovely, calm demeanor. She eased my pre-wedding jitters while making me look like a princess. Thank you, Julia!!

    Best makeup artist! Roy applied makeup for my sister's wedding and for a professional photo on LinkedIn. I received several compliments on her work from family at the wedding and from coworkers who saw my wedding selfies and updated LinkedIn profile. Big thank you for helping me out with a cat eye (I have an astigmatism that males it too difficult for me to apply eye liner).

    I was the Maid of Honor in my best friend's wedding and Vivian was amazing! She was relaxed and professional from the second she arrived at 6am on the day of! She was able to whip out 3 bridesmaids, one mother-in-law, the beautiful bride, and even a last minute addition, all by picture time at 12:00pm. She was upbeat and positive and her makeup was amazing and lasted throughout the night! The bride looked absolutely stunning and she made sure to take just as much care with all of the bridesmaids as well! From the first time I talked with Vivian over email, she has been nothing but prepared and professional. She helped the bride create her vision during the trial makeup session, and later followed up with email to get selfies of all the bridesmaids in order to prepare lip and foundation colors. She even brought an extra stick of lipstick to give to the bride so she could reapply on the day of the wedding, if needed! I could not recommend Vivian more! If you are looking for a professional and punctual makeup artist who's phenomenal at her trade, then look no further.

      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.

      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.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
