Make up or hair which to do first?

Katrina, 18 of January of 2024 at 10:24 Posted on Beauty & Wellbeing 0 6

Hey all,

Just a quick one does hair get done first or make up? Smiley smile I suppose it depends on who is doing it I would have thought. As long as the dress does not have to go over my head. I might invite them both at the same time on the day of wedding.

    Check with your hair lady if she wants you in the chair in one part or two. Mine was two, so I did wet layers of makeup first, then hair, then the rest of my makeup then the rest of my hair. I did my own makeup.
    To me I would do makeup first so that you can scrape all the hair away from your face without worrying about it, but ask your hair & make up ladies & see if they have any preference. They’ll likely both be there for similar time if multiple people are getting ready anyway, and then you need to figure out your bridal parties getting ready order for each.

    Thank You for your response Smiley smile
    Definitely will get them to both arrive similar times for sure. It will just be myself having hair & make up done. I won't be having any bridemaids Smiley smile so should be more straight forward.

    Whenever I've seen wedding photos, it's nearly always makeup first then hair, but I would check with both to see if they have a preference. Hair first then makeup has always seemed a more sensible way round to me though, as I can imagine scenarios in which doing hair might disturb makeup, but not really the other way around!

    I might want to sit in my dress while hair is being done. Or put my dress on once hair and make up are done! Smiley smile

    Definitely put your dress on last, you don’t want to risk creasing it or getting something spilled or sprayed on it
