Is it better to do hair or makeup first?
It’s better to start with makeup, not a hairstyle. Since the hairstyle in the area near the face should be well fixed. You should touch your hair less after fixing it. Also, when the makeup is ready, it is easier for the stylist to create a more harmonious overlook, with the ability to adjust the volumes.
