    He does his hair a lot.

    "He does his hair a lot" or "he combs his hair a lot."

    Please check.

    Re: He does his hair a lot.

    They both work but they don't mean the same thing.

    To do one's hair is far more elaborate a process than simply combing it.

    Re: He does his hair a lot.

    Combing your hair and doing your hair both are different and how about dresing your hair? Could you please tell me what is the difference between these three?

    Re: He does his hair a lot.

    I've never heard of dressing your hair.

    Remember this thread from a few weeks ago, tufguy?

    Yes, but I would like to know the difference between "do your hair" and "comb your hair" because Roman55 is saying these are two different things. In that thread you told me that dressing takes a lot of time and we say "we do our hair". Can dressing be done on girl's hair only? Is it only done by another person on your hair or you can also do it on your hair yourself?

    Re: He does his hair a lot.

    Forget 'dressing' your hair. It's rare. ems told you about it in the other thread.

    As for 'doing' your hair, as ems also told you in the other thread, it's better to be specific about what you are actually going to do. It might be any or all of wash, dry, curl, perm, com, brush, colour,, etc.

    Re: He does his hair a lot.

    Okay, doing your hair includes combing, washing, drying etc.

    Re: He does his hair a lot.

    When the women I know speak of getting or having their hair 'done', it's a multi-step process which, depending on her style preference, may involve washing, cutting, styling, perming, curling, dyeing, drying, weaves, extensions, and other processes I'm not even aware of.

    It's much more involved than one single action, as opposed to just cutting or combing.

    My experiences have been that even when just getting ready to leave the house, a woman 'doing' her hair seems to be a mysteriously long process involving many steps.

    I've learned that "I'll be ready in a moment, I just need to do my hair" actually means I've got time to read at least one or two more chapters in whatever book I'm currently reading.

    Re: He does his hair a lot.

    Donald Trump may well do his hair as his idiosyncratic coiffure requires a lot more than simply combing it.
