parenting artwork to artwork problem

To animate, I'm using the puppet tool>bones>structure. Everything is working great, but I now want to parent the hair artwork to the head artwork so that it moves when the head moves (the head is rigged to the structure etc.)

When I parent, it does not rotate when the head rotates (same problem with the eyes. Is this something that needs to be done BEFORE I puppet pin, add bones, add structure? Is there ANY way to do it now, rather than start all over again?

thanks!

I've gone back and started again... as soon as I add bones to the head, the hair artwork does not follow the head... what am I doing wrong?

If there are bones on the puppet tool, they're controlling the layer, so parenting won't do anything (or would only create problems). As the bones will drag the layer, you don't have to parent it to anything.

There are no bones in the hair layer. There are bones in the head layer. How do I attach the hair to the head, so that it moves with the head?

Parent them to the structures or the bones...
