With the hairdressers out of bounds as a result of the government lockdown, a new phenomenon has spawned. People are attempting home haircuts, and the results are too LOL.
Across the nation, people are taking unprecedented measures to stay looking fresh, reaching for their nearest clippers and scissors and desperately taking to their own hair - while some brave souls have even let their girlfriends have a go. *Gulp*.
As predicted, the results are disastrous, with the following photos showing some of the worst home haircuts to come out of the crisis. (*Cough* these people clearly didn't read Tyla's guide to cutting your hair at home.)
There's Matt, 20, who clearly recruited a loved one to attempt a skin fade on his head. As you can see, the results are shocking - far from a neat fade, Matt's been left with jaggedy steps going up his crown. It's alright Matt, no one's going to see it for a few weeks.
And then there's Tommy. Poor, poor Tommy. The 22-year-old clearly had someone attempt some sort of fancy point fade which runs right down to his crown. The results? Well, just so, so bad.
It looks easy when they do it in the barbers, doesn't it pal?
Lara, 22, was clearly trying to do some maintenance on her fringe. Bangs wearers can relate - this is a hard time when you need a trim in order to see.
However, Lara's attempt at tending to her own fringe left her with a sort of gaping triangle where her hair once lived. Don't worry Lara, it'll grow out soon.
Guys, we feel for you, but at least you'll have a few weeks indoors for it to grow back.
If you simply can't wait for a haircut (but don't want to end up looking like these guys), don't worry, we've compiled a handy guide to home haircutting for four different hair types.
For many, the idea of cutting your hair at home may bring back memories of your mum conducting 90s bowl cuts on your brothers or induce PTSD of that time your friend performed an unsalvageable hack job on your fringe as a teenager - but home hair cuts needn't be scary.
Provided you're just after a trim (and not an entire restyle - let's not get carried away here), cutting your hair at home is doable in self-isolation.
