My mother had long hair we did not cut for the last 2 years. She lives in a memory care where the aides kept it in a ponytail. Her activies include sitting in a wheelchair and lying in bed. Last week, the facility called and asked if the new hairstylist could cut her hair and what would I like and I said a nice short wash and wear.
Our hospice aide and nurse were both distressed the next day and sent me photos. The stylist simply pulled the bun up a little and cut it off! She claims she couldn't do anything else as mother would not hold still. It was horrible so I went over to try to fix it. I used a DVD of a kids' dog movie from redbox to keep her from noticing I was messing with her hair, just like with little kids. I have 30 years experience cutting my husband and 4 sons' hair, but none in ladies', and she has a great businessman's special now! What can I do to make it more feminine next time?
