Hair and makeup... They'll be me and three others for hair and makeup the morning of my wedding. I've found a lovely lady who does both hair and makeup and i know i don't have a massive group to get ready, but just worried on timescales? Has anyone else just used one stylist for their day or typically had one hair stylist and then one MUA? My ceremony is at 1pm.
Hi I haven't given this a thought yet :)
She would probably start about 8am maybe earlier to make sure she got everyone done it time. If you've already had a trial or have told her what you want I'm guessing she would have made a note of how long each one would
Take to do x
I'm having me and 2 others and she's starting at 7am. Our ceremony is 1.45. She's giving us an extra hour to chill and for touch ups :)
Once u book her she will tell u times once u hav given her all ur info
I had one lady for hair who turned up at 7 and a make up lady who turned up at 8 for a 1.30 ceremony for 4 make up and 5 hair. We had an hour at the end for final hair spraying and chill time which you'll want. This was with two people though
I had the same lady do both hair and makeup for me, my two bridesmaids and my mum. She arrived about 830 and had finished us all by 1315. I got married at 2. She also did my sisters wedding with one extra bridesmaid.
My ceremony was at 10 and she did 2 lots of make up and 4 lots of hair (plus a plait on my niece). She started at 5am and had time leftover at the end
I'm getting married at 2. There's 4 of us getting our hair and make up done by the same women. She asked what time I wanted to leave the salon which I said 11.30 as photographer is coming at 12. So we have to be there at 7am x
We had 8 of us who needed to be ready for a 12pm service. Our hair and makeup started at 6am. I imagine she will bring a team along with her
I was going to start at 9.30am for a 12pm wedding is this too short time frame?
I had mine separate which worked out great - whilst I was getting my hair done, my bm was getting her makeup done etc and meant no one was hanging round! We had time afterwards for a drink and some photos so it was nice and chilled! You don't want to be rushing round on your wedding day so I'd consider getting one person for hair and one for makeup xx
I got married at 1pm and a make up artist and hairdresser came to the house for about 8am. They did mine, my mum's and three bridesmaids' hair and make up and they'd finished by about 11 x
There were 5 of us for my sister's wedding,one MUA and hairdresser. 2pm ceremony,I was at her hotel for 9am. They'll do you last as they'll want you to be the freshest looking
There was 6 of us to get ready and only one of each MUA and stylist. We were all ready in plenty of time to leave at 11.15 for our 12pm start. Just let the people you've hired know and they will work timings out x
I used one stylist for me and 2 bridemaids to do hair and makeup and she started at 9.30am and was done for around 12.30pm and we was getting married at 1.45pm. If you are unsure ask your stylist what time she suggests she turns up.
Makeup is usually a 30 min appointment, so that's 2 hours.. and then depending on how long your hair will take - say 1 hour (per person) to over compensate.. 4 hours. So I would budget for maybe 6 hours? But I like to be safe and over-compensate for time, plus this gives time for your hair to settle and an extra hair spray etc if needed x
My wedding was at 2 and we started at 9am. There was only 2 to get hair done and 3 for make up. Took roughly 4 hours
There was 8 of us and we had 1 of each. We started at 6.30am and we're ready for 11 with no rushing. We only started so early as both were guests at the wedding too and had to also get themselves ready. Just tell them what you need and they will work out timings etc xx
I got married at 13:00. We started having our hair done at 07:00 and makeup followed. There was 7 of us having hair done though and 2 having makeup
I got married at 12, had 2 hairdressers and 1 MUA, there was me plus 4 BM for H&M.....they came at 7am and it was still a bad rush to put out dresses on and get the photos x
We started at 7am wedding was at 12.30 we were all ready hair and make up by 11.30 at the latest. Bride, 2 adult bridesmaids a flower Girl and my mums hair xx
I've recently booked my hair and make up artists for next year. They are coming at 8am for a 2pm wedding so that we are all ready by 12.30 at the latest. The lady I spoke to on the phone worked out all the timings for me. I'm using a hair dressing salon who are coming to us so may not just be one person x
I got married at 4 and there was 3 of us for hair & makeup and the lady I hired came at 12:30 to give time for hair makeup and getting into our dresses x
I had 3 maids 2 of them and myself were getting our hair done and my sister had her hair straightened and we managed fine with time
I had me two bridesmaids and my mum we had a make up artist and two hairdressers my wedding was 1.30 I was still late I'd have at least one for make up one for hair my ladies came at 7 in the morning and my hair had been curly blowed and pin curled day before to xx
It also depends on whether you're having one or multiple MUA/Hairdressers. If you're having more than one, 2 people could be worked on at the same time so that would reduce the time needed.
I had myself, 2 bridesmaid and a flower girl for hair and make up with the same lady. I got married at 2pm and we started at 8.30. Took an hour and a half for me and 45 minutes for each bridesmaid x
We started at 930am for 2 bridesmaids and my hair, make up was being done at the same time, our wedding was 130pm and we had about 30 mins to spare.
I'm a hair dresser and MUA, if you had one person doing all of you, it would be a very early start! You'd probably need at least 6 hours so she didn't feel like she was rushing either. If she's happy and your happy to start at 7 am then that's fine, if not use her for one and someone else for another 🙂
My make up artist arrived at 7.30 for a 1pm wedding she did 5 people. Then I had a separate hair dresser she arrived at 9.30 x
I had 1 lady do both hair and make up for me and 5 girls. She came to us for 7am for a 2pm ceremony x
My glam squad consists of one MUA and one hair dresser, they are starting at 7am to get 5 of us ready for a 2pm ceremony, hope that helps x
id say give 45mins each for hair and make up and then an hour for yourself for each..thats roughly what my hair and make up ladies have done. they should give you a timeline based on on how long they'll need.. for example my hair stylist has allocated 2 hours for my hair but 45 for my bridesmaids because my hair style is quite intricate. it really depends on what you're having but an hour for each should be a good average to work with :)
I'm going to hairdressers at 9 for me and mum to get our hair done (cars not picking us up till quarter to 2) doing my make up myself as I don't like the way make up artists cake it on.. and I'm leaving the bridesmaids to do whatever they feel like
I got married at 1pm. Only had one lady doing hair and makeup she came to mine for 6.30 and was done by 11.30 xx
Hi, I have me and four others to get ready and we have just one lady doing ours. We are having a trial all together so we can see how times will work realistically.
I got married in Cyprus. My sister in law did hair and makeup for myself, my mum, maid of honour, 3 bridesmaids and the hair for 3 flower girls :) she started at 7.30 and I got married at 1.30 xx
Exactly same amt of people and getting married at 1pm. My lady is starting first bridesmaid at 7.15am. Will finish completely by 12.30pm.
I'm getting married at 12:30, there is me and 3 others that are getting hair and makeup done - what time do you think we should start!? I never even thought of that!
I get married in 2 weeks our hair dresser is coming at 7am and make up at 8am! There are 5 of us getting ready in total and ceremony is at 1:30. My make up artist pointed out that you would need everyone done by 12 at the latest so everyone can get changed etc (which I hadn't thought about until my trial!) x x
I had two hair dressers and one mua for my bridal party. We started at 8am with the mua doing mother of groom while 1 hairdresser did mother of bride, 2nd hair dresser started on junior bridesmaid, the mums swapped over, then 2nd hair dresser did the bridesmaids. As each bridesmaid was finished with hairdresser they then went and had makeup....i went last with mua and hairdresser. One of my bridesmaids was my hairdresser so she then had her hair done by the other hairdresser. I got married at 2pm and we were only just ready on time. I think if you have more than 3 people who need make up and hair then you'll probably need a separate hairdresser and mua. It takes around an hour each for hair, and another hour each for makeup. Xx
I had a hairstylist for three adult bridesmaids two 'mums' one child bridesmaid and me and she only did hair and she came at 6:30 for my wedding starting at 2pm- however the bridesmaids did set off an hour before me so they had to be ready for then- and obv my hair was ready well before I needed to leave :)
