My mum is 75 and has not had a shampoo and set since about 1957. She has a nice short, slightly funky cut. The last time she visited I took her to my salon and the cut we chose for her was the Kiera Knightly elfin one ( if you remember that one). Looks really good on her. I bought her a dress from Whistles that week end too. I should be so funky
My mobile hairdresser has an 80-strong client list and only does a couple of shampoo & sets. She has an old portable sit-under dryer for that purpose. The 'ladies of a certain age' tend to book a decent blow-dry once a week instead.
There is a lady at work, I have known for about 14 years who always has a shampoo & set. She's my age. Most odd.
my 85 yr old granny has her hair done once a week. She cant wash it herself anymore and it's sometimes her only outing from the house. It makes her feel good and is a nice treat for herself. I suppose as her generation pass on there wont be the need for it.
