Re: Separate hair and makeup, or someone who does both?

I went with a sister team, one is a hair dresser and the other a makeup artist.

It was important to me to have at least two girls as we have 4 hair and make up and 2 blow dries. Given they work together all the time I knew it would go smoothly.

I booked at a salon, hair was done by one lady, then another lady did my make up. I think if you were only having yourself and one other person, that the same person could probably handle doing both (if they were skilled at both) but if there are going to be more than that, I think you would probably need at least 2 people, otherwise it will just take too long (with only the one person doing both). If it takes 1 hour to do both hair and make up per person (and even at 1 hour, I think that would be pushing it), you are looking at 5 hours with only 1 person, but that drops to 2.5 (as the hairdresser can keep doing others hair while the MUA does her magic).

My make up lady was a hairdresser who does make up - I was super impressed with her abilities to do both and it was much easier to book just one person. She did me and 3 BMs and my Mum on the day - hair and make up for all of us and it was done with heaps of time to spare and didn't feel rushed at all. She did all the hair first then all the make up.

Hi,
I booked a lady who did both hair and makeup for my engagement party. She called herself a
makeup artist and hair stylist. It cost $130 for this service, to the house.
I found she was able to do both jobs, however not with the skill of a hairdresser or an experienced makeup artist.
From this, I have gone with a separate makeup artist and a hairdresser.
Although more expensive this way, I think hair and makeup is really important!

I had seperate people, worked out really well, I needed make-up done later than hair because I didnt want to put my contacts in too early. However our hair was ready early.

Separate people. In my experience the cost is the same whether you go for one professional or two, so you may as well choose specialists in each area.
It also saves a looooottt of time if you and your BM, mum, FSIL etc rotate between hair and makeup rather than have one person do it all
