    I think I'm going to have my hair done first as well. Not sure if I will wash it that morning or the day before though. It depends on what style I'm having I guess. I'm taking my dressing gown to the hotel so I can lounge in the until its time to put on the dress. I'm just worried about ruining my hair when I put the dress on as I have a feeling it will have to go over rather than stepping into it.

    think I would rather my make up done first, then hair, then a final touch up just before all systems go!

    I don’t repeat gossip so listen very carefully!!

    BREAKFAST first...everyone knows that! ummm (-: Followed by shower...followed by nervous pacing, followed by hair, make up...more nervous pacing, and probably a few make up touch ups as I may get a bit emotional! Then dress....hopefully without getting make up all over it...one of my lil fears. xxx

    I have a gorgeous husband!
    2 brilliant wonderful boys, a wonderful life

    Well I have no choice but to do make up first - and I actually have to leave the house to get it done! But I do have everything I need for a touch up already so it's not too bad :) Not sure how much the girls will like me waving bye to them for half an hour though - maybe I could promise them a mcdonalds breakfast when I get back :P

    If your having make up artist, hair stylist.. you'll find they will MAKE you have make up first and then hair. If you want it done the other way round check before your booking someone x

    really depends on what you are having done. If you are having an up do like me then i'd say hair first so your hair is all sorted then do your make up. If having your hair down I would do make up first and then hair as then you can pin your hair out of your face and do your make up before styling your hair :) xxx

    I would think it would depend on the hairdo. If you were having it all swept back and off your face, then hair can go first, but if you are having more of a down do, or half up/down, then wouldn't they have to put your hair back to do the foundation, so then you'd have make up done first, then hair?

    As a pro make-up artist I always want my brides to have their hair done first, that way I don't have to worry about a hair stylist making a mess of it and the stylist doesn't have to worry about hair getting onto lips etc.

    So with my brides its breakfast then hair then make-up then dress on pictures taken then off to the ceremony :-)

    I'm going to make my makeup first and then my hair with the help of a hot air brush. I want something simple and beautiful and don't spend much money and time on it. For my hair, I'm gonna do light curls and then style them.
    Not sure, which hot air brush to use for sure, still choosing and reading reviews on Monica Davis blog ( LINK REMOVED )hot-air-brushes. What about makeup, I'm thinking about something natural cat eye makeup.
