I am booking appointments for a family wedding coming up and feeling pretty clueless.
For the wedding day, Which appointment should go first? Makeup or hair?

Thanks!

Makeup first. It's harder to do the face once the hair is done.

Both the makeup artist and hair person for my wedding said always hair first.

So..
I guess different opinions...

As a makeup artist it's easier for me to do makeup before hair, that way I don't have to worry about messing the hair which often covers part of the face.

Blow drying the hair can melt the makeup or make the face sweaty.
I always recommend hair before makeup.

I do both, makeup and hair. I've never seen anyone's makeup melt from blow drying. As long as the room is well ventilated, nobody should be sweating.
I prefer makeup first. The hair especially the face frame gets messed up from doing makeup.
You want the foundation blended well into the hairline. When the face is sprayed with a finishing spray you don't want to get that onto freshly styled hair.
What I sometimes do is begin hair prep (curl it, put in rollers etc...), do the makeup and then finish up the hair.

Hair first, makeup after.
With a wig, I do makeup first.

Makeup first so the makeup lady doesn't smush your hair all over when she's blending foundation. My makeup and hair people also disagreed for my wedding-they each wanted to go first, so I decided on my own and went with makeup first.

Every time I've ever had my hair and makeup done it was always hair first.
