That’s gorgeous! I am doing hair first, then makeup.

Generally, I do makeup first and then hair. I have bangs which I have to pin back to do makeup, so if I even try to do my hair first it always ends messed up by the time I finish my makeup.

I had my hair done first and so glad I did because I had half my hair over my face while it was getting done, combs constantly brushing against my face and a hairdryer blowing into my face. My makeup would’ve been ruined! It might be a different story if you have bangs but even then I’d consider just pinning them back and fixing them if need be once your makeup is done. Hairdryers and hot tools can really melt your makeup!

Granted my makeup and hair was done by the same person, but whenever I’ve gotten it done they have set my hair (blow-dried, curled, put in rollers, etc) and then they did my makeup while it was cooling/setting. Then they styled my hair at the end.

But if your doing it yourself I would probably just do makeup last.

Hair then make up. The hair usually sets in rollers while they do your face, and then they finish up your hair

Hair first, then make up. My two cents.

You generally do hair first as a rule so that if any hair products are sprayed or drip or the use of hot styling tools causes perspiration, it won’t affect your makeup.

My MUA and Hairstylist both said makeup first, and did makeup first for all the girls. You can always touch up makeup if you need to. I’d ask your stylist.

My makeup and hair lady did my makeup first then hair at the trial. She was good with not spraying stuff in my face, and hair was brushed away from my face mostly.
