My mother had some photos taken before, so she'd have the image with all of her hair. I don't remember seeing any during chemo, but there were more afterwards, when her hair was back.

She didn't like the way her hair was falling out in clumps so one day she walked into a barbershop in her neighborhood and told the barber she'd like her head shaved. He took her to a chair in the back so it wasn't in view of passersby and did the haircut, and she wore a soft scarf-like hat until her hair grew back. The bare head felt much better than losing hair in gobs.
