Need + verb-ing

Sometimes it's useful to talk about fixing or improving things, but without saying who is going to do it. To do this, we can use need + verb-ing.
To talk about fixing or improving things, you can use need with an -ing verb. There are three parts to this structure.
First, you name the thing – my hair, or the car, or my shoes. Then you say 'need' - or 'needs' - and finally, a verb with –ing.


Positive
subject need(s) verb-ing
My hair needs cutting
The curtains need washing


Negative
subject doesn't / don't needverb -ing
My hairdoesn'tneed cutting
The curtainsdon'tneed washing


Question
do/does subject needverb -ing
Does my hairneed cutting?
Do the curtainsneed washing?
