Really? You have to redo them every day? I was hoping that over time as it grew longer I'd be able to leave it in longer.

I do mine every morning when faces are washed and hair is combed. Sometimes in the middle of the day, when they're playing hard and it gets messy. I would think the hair would tangle or mat, if left in for too long .Ari looks cute , in his topknot and bow.

I always read that you wash their faces daily or almost and would you please tell me - excusing my lack of acknowledgment already - do you wash and blow dry the face or just pat dry? I'm asking because Dominic basically cry when I wash his face, he stick his nails on my arms and act like the zombies are coming soon.

Try a wet towel wash. Gustave doesn't like water on his face and he barely tolerates it at bath time, but I do daily spa lavish with a wet towel. He doesn't mind it at all.

To answer the OP's question, I just think about how annoying it is for me to sleep with make-up still on, or with my hair tied up, so I undo Gustave's topknot. If not, I atleast take out the bow and loosen the topknot.

I just pat dry the face, squeezing the longer facial hair with clean/dry cotton squares that I also use to wash her face with Collyrium and BioGroom.

I don't use the hair dryer right in her face even when she has a full bath. I know I don't like it blowing in my own eyes when I dry my own hair, so I don't blow it in hers either. I dry the top of her head and ears approaching from the back of her head so no air blows right in her face. I then hold her little head up, nose to the ceiling, while I quickly blow dry her chest. I just pat the face with a towel and let it airdry.

Thank you so much for the answers. Ill try the towel clean up also. I just gave him a full bath poor thing but I blew dry his head from the back as suggested.
About the top knot I also undo every night and massage his head.
