In brief: Sure
You can space them out or choose one of the combination products like Excedrin (aspirin, tylenol (acetaminophen) and caffeine).
I also agree that Ibuprofen is a better choice than aspirin.

In brief: OK but..
For headcahe it is better to space tylenol (acetaminophen) and Aspirin 4 hours apart.
Instead of Aspirin consider Aleve : it's longer acting (up to 12 hours).
