Hair first so you do not get hairspray and all sticky on your face. Id give yourelf a good hr and a half for hair. My simple do for my e-pics took about 45 minutes and my hair is a bit past my shoulders. It took about 1.5 hrs for my MU trial too. Just allow yourself a little time cushion incase:)

Defintely do hair first! I would do a trial to make sure you love what you’ll look like on the big day…and allow some extra time so you don’t feel rushed. Maybe hair at 12:30, and makeup at 2:30. Have some loose powder (oil blotting papers work great in place of powder), and a lip stick for touch-ups later on.

Definitely hair first. My stylist told me to plan for an hour for hair, and my make up artist told me half an hour for my makeup (but I’m going for natural makeup- more dramatic might take longer). So I’d say give yourself at LEAST an hour and a half between appointment start times.

I know how you feel… so many details I never even considered starting popping up in the last month, lol.

Hair first definitely. Make up will take less time to ‘wear off’.

Also, with your timings I think you’d be there closer to 4pm as your hair and make up will take a good hour each.
