You may ask yourself: what should I do with my hair during lockdown? Well, why not take advantage of it to experiment! Maybe you will want to let your hair grow and try a new style. Or maybe you’ll prefer simply keeping your current haircut and trying to cut it by yourself. In both cases, keep reading to learn how to get started.
1. Letting your hair grow
On average, hair grows at 1-1.5cm every 4 to 6 weeks. Since you can’t go to the salon during quarantine, why not let it grow? This is the right period to experiment with new styles. To do this, you can use hairstyling tools (comb and hair dryer) and hairstyling products (styling clay, hairspray, texturizer). This video will give you a few easy and quick hairstyle ideas to try at home.
2. Cutting your own hair
If you are not really into longer hairstyles, then it’s time for you to try cutting your hair by yourself! Try to keep it to the minimum. Before starting, make sure to wash your hair: clean hair is easier to cut.
What tools do I need?
Prepare a hair clipper, hair scissors and a comb. Perhaps also a spray bottle of water if you ever feel the need to wet your hair. If you don’t have a hair clipper or are looking for a new one, check this page to compare clippers from popular brands and find the one that suits you best.
