    The hair & makeup people we used scheduled the bride first for hair, since that would probably take more time than the other and they didn’t want to rush, and I was almost last for makeup (would’ve been last except for a bm who changed her mind and decided to get makeup last minute). 

    Ours were at the same place, so some people got their makeup done while others were getting their hair done & so forth. We gave our bms the choice, so I think 3 got makeup and 2 got hair done, plus my mom & Mother-In-Law.

    My makeup artist told me she prefers to do her thing before my hair gets done because when using airbrush makeup, she has to touch my hair and she wouldn’t want to risk messing it up

    We did my makeup before my hair so my hair wouldn’t get messed up with getting pinned back and constant touching. The MUA stayed onsite to touch up after my hair was done. I went last for hair since mine took the longest with applying my extensions.

    My hairdresser blew out my hair and put it in rollers first, then my MUA did my makeup, and then my hairdresser finished my hair. Since I wore it down, it was necessary to do it that way.
