My dm didn't do much either. When we were younger, she shampooed and set her own hair. She did go to the beauty shop for perms and haircuts when I was a kid. She mostly did her own hair.
My dm gave us home perms when I was a kid and did take us to get our hair cut. As an adult, I used to get a perm quite often, but my present hair dresser told I didn't need a perm and does a great job of cutting my hair. I do have to use hair spray as I have two cowlicks. They are a nuisance. I do wear make=up, but I have switched to a powder base, and I really like it. I have to do something with my eyebrows as they are going away. That is about it.
