What order are you doing your hair and makeup on the big day. Does it matter?
I have someone coming to the house to do my hair but will have to go out to get my makeup done. Trying to figure out which one I should schedule first.

I’m going to do my makeup first just out of convenience sake.
Though I will be washing and drying my own hair before. I’m just having it styled.

Hair before the makeup. If you’re using any hot irons, etc, It will melt the makeup off!

Yea, that’s true. I’m doing my own bangs. So everything hot or in front will be done before my makeup

i think i definitely want my hair done first. i don’t want my makeup to start melting off any sooner than it has to!

I did my own makeup before heading to the salon (salon opened at 8, wedding was at 10–VERY tight schedule), and I let my stylist know. She was super-careful about not messing up my makeup. Still, I did bring a baggie of essential stuff so I could touch it up in the bathroom after my hair was done!

go hair first! hair will stay alot longer than makeup – just my experience though 🙂

The first time I was married (sigh.., yes this is my 2nd… but this time the RIGHT way)
I had my hair & makeup done at the salon & they did my hair first 😉

I’ve heard you should do your hair first so you can wash all the hairspray and junk that gets on your face off before you put your makeup on. 🙂

The make-up people INSISTED it be done second. I guess with hair products and heat etc. near your face it is best to do hair first! Why not ask the make-up people what they suggest, just to be safe?

I have no idea why, but my hairstylist, makeup artist, and videographer all told me this is how it was done, haha!
ETA: how it is done is hair then makeup

@MissBoPeep: haha i actually sprayed my face with hairspray – after makeup of course – the lady at the MAC counter said it helps – it seemed to

hair first. don’t want to get sprayed in the face (and have to wash) or have product/heat screw anything up.
