I normally wash an blow-dry my hair at night, before bed, so lazy solution there. However, when I do feel like styling my hair (which is rarer than rare), I generally do my hair before make-up if I’m using hot tools, and after if I’m just putting it in an updo. That way I can skip it if I don’t have enough time.

Definately hair Christine. Face & eye cream are the only products I do put on my face so it can soak in while I do my hair. Then primer & makeup after hair.

I put my hair up in a bun and do my make-up first. I hate it when hair strands get onto my face while I’m doing my make-up, especially when I’m blending out my tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation. Since, I had my hair digitally permed, I don’t really need to do much. 🙂

Makeup! I take a shower before I get ready, so I try to air dry my hair as much as possible before I blow it out 🙂

Makeup first. My hair takes little to no time (thanks, Frances, and your fabulous hair cuts!)

Agree with those that let their hair air-dry as much as possible while doing makeup! I often don’t even blow dry mine, but makeup is the natural first thing out of the shower for me while my face (and hands!) are still clean. Plus, to me makeup is more important, so if I have to shave off a few minutes of hair time, that’s fine.

I… *ahem*… never do anything with my hair. It’s a lost cause because I bike commute, and it’s going to get messed up anyway. So, yeah… I just do the make-up and touch up my hair after I’m at work / wherever I’m going.

Definitely makeup first. I hate hair in my face when I am trying to put on makeup so I pile it on my head in a clip. I also tend to just dry the roots of my hair and let the rest dry naturally. My hair is fine and poker straight so there really isn’t much to do. A lot of time I wear it up and off my face with hairbands and clips and I do not wash my hair everyday. Isn’t dry shampoo just the best thing ever!

I do my makeup while my hair is wrapped up in a towel. That way my hair is semi-dry by the time I’m ready to blow dry it.

I generally don’t style my curly/wavy hair, but I do straighten my bangs every day, which is the very last step in my morning routine. If I’m putting my hair up I generally do that before putting on makeup because I feel like that affects what makeup I should wear. Sometimes I do it the other way around and decide how to wear my hair depending on my makeup. -shrug-

I just shower at night, let my hair air dry a bit and then go to bed. I have wavy/curly hair and it actually looks really good without any effort. So in the morning I don’t have to worry about my hair and just start applying makeup 😛

I do my make-up first as I wear a wig. Sometimes the style of the piece influences my color selection. A conservative bob usually calls for a softer look.
