    I figure they are gonna want my hair out of my face for the make-up, so it makes more sense to do hair after.

    I am getting my hair done first at 11am, then make-up artist is meeting us in the bridal suite at 1:15. 🙂

    I did my makeup myself. I had my foundation on before my hair dresser came. (glad I did because I had a lot of pictures of me getting my hair done!) and then I finished my face after my hair was done.

    I think if you hair will be up, that it’s better to do hair first, but if it’s down, do the makeup first so the hair doesn’t get messed up and is also as fresh as possible since the down styles will break down much faster than updos.

    I had makeup first (complete with airbrush) then hair. Makeup aritist got to our condo first, so I started with makeup!

    Hair first.  I have allergies and sensitive skin.  I had a towel on my face anytime she sprayed, plus I washed my face after.

    I wasn’t given a choice. They did my hair first, then my makeup. I never really gave it a second though. All turned out fine.

    My makeup artist said it was customary for them to do makeup after the hair, so they dont get hairspray or product in the makeup.

    @mrsSonthebeach speaks the truth!

    I had an updo so I had my hair done first.

    it makes sense to me to do make up first… this is what i do everyday anyway. i have long hair and i need it away from my face when i do my make up, so i wear one of those headband things. then do my hair

    I always get my hair done and then my makeup.
