I was just wondering if I am going to make appointments for “day of” wedding hair or makeup, which should I schedule first? Should I get my hair done before makeup or vice versa? Or does it not matter?
Thanks in advance for your advice!

If you’re referring to your trials – in my opinion – it doesn’t matter which one is done first.
I did my makeup first (simply bc a Bridesmaid or Best Man is doing it, she’s a makeup artist) and my trial hair appt is this Saturday actually. ( make up was done 2 weeks ago).
But, the day of …. hair first, make up next. 🙂 Good luck!

I would do hair first too….. my face gets all red when i get a little warm, from curling irons or hair dryers … it needs time to calm down.

i would do hair first, then makeup. But if it doesn’t work out in that order the day of, then I’m sure it’s not a huge deal either way 🙂

i concur with the others – hair first.

Hair first is a good idea, because then you can wash your face after to remove the hairspray and product that mists over it before applying your makeup. If it doesn’t work out that way, it’s not a huge deal, but if there’s a choice I’d schedule hair first.

Hair first. You want your makeup to be as fresh as possible, and the hair can take a while!

My hair/makeup lady did my hair first then the makeup.

you can do it simultaneously, too~ 😉
ACTUALLY, whichever comes first is fine because if you do your hair first, you won’t get hair spray all over your makeup, but if you do makeup first, you need to clip back your hair which means the hair stylist has to take care of that, the same way the makeup artist has to REMOVE the hair spray from the skin!
a bit of a dilemma, ain’t it? 🙂

I was in my cousin’s wedding this summer, and mine is in 17 days (!), and I’m using the same stylist.
What she did was get everyone’s hair set in the curlers (for up dos AND down dos), sprayed them, then did makeup while our hair was setting. After she got the makeup done, she took our hair down and styled it. This allowed the hair to get good volume and curl. If she had to spray it anymore, she simply had us hold a small hand towel over our faces so as not to get our faces all sticky.
I would highly recommend getting it all done at the same place, if possible, because this method seems to always work best for me. I’ve always used it in all the pageants and weddings I’ve ever been in!
