Would you rather be your own hair or makeup stylist?

Imagine you had to step up and be your own glam squad for your wedding...

Would you rather do your own hair or your own makeup?



Next Question: Let your partner or your parents plan the wedding?

    Makeup! I can at least make that look good, where as with my hair I can't do fancy updos or anything of that sort.

    Definitely makeup. I do my makeup the same way every day and will only be adding some eyeshadow and lipstick for my wedding day (doing my own makeup). I would be hopeless doing my own hair, I have zero skills in that department lol

    Makeup. My hair has a mind of its own.

    Makeup for sure! I have been practicing for months and have this nailed down. My hair is fine if I spend an hour curling it with a metric butt ton of product in it, but that isn't even the look I'm going for so I'm beyond grateful my friend offered to do my hair.

    Definitely hair. I have very little makeup experience and do a lot more with my hair on a regular basis. I'm also want a fairly simple hairstyle for the wedding so I think I'd be able to do it on my own

    Make up for sure. My hair has it's own way of doing whatever it wants. I am doing my own makeup as it is for the wedding.

    I haven’t decided yet about hiring anyone to do hair or makeup but I don’t really want to. I am good at doing my own hair and my vision for my hair is something I can accomplish on my own. I am not as knowledgeable about makeup so i’d be more likely to need professional help with that.

    Make up because I would just slap on some lip gloss and call it a day. I don’t wear makeup at all so I would have no idea what I’m doing but putting on lip gloss rather than trying to figure out what to do with my hair is a lot easier.

    My hair is so finicky. Plus I am not a pro at make up so MUA would be the best option for me.

    I went to school for makeup artistry, so I have a bit of a leg up in that area.

    Definitely wouldn't do my own hair. If I did, it would probably end up in a "classy" messy bun.

    I am thinking I will do both myself. My hair does not need to be done, its basically going to be how I wear it everyday (yay for short hair). I love doing my makeup and feel like it will be kind of a stress reliever for me, but I might get it done...
