As the weeks of COVID lockdown drag on, the Canberrans are forced to contend with their growing locks, shaggy bangs and gray hair. Hairdressers and barbers remain closed, so should you try to be your own hairstylist and cut or dye your own hair? Managing Director of Truefitt & Khushwant Dhanoa Hills Barbers said people with short hair might try cutting their hair with a clipper – with a few words of caution. “As for guys who keep their hair on the shorter side before locking, if they just cut the sides with the trimmer their top will tend to elongate, but because it would have been shaped and styled by the barber before that, the length of the hair would increase accordingly so that they could just straighten it and freeze it, ”Mr. Dhanoa said.“ Working with scissors is a whole different thing and unless they are know what they are doing, I generally wouldn’t recommend it because it doesn’t go very well. “A more aggressive approach would be… cut, like a military cut, and just set it to a number two or number three mower.” The other important thing I point out to customers is that if they make a mistake, don’t worry too much, it’s just hair. “It’s going to grow back and we’re here at the end of the lockdown to help them sort it out.” If you want to try a cut at home, Mr Dhanoa said it’s best to cover yourself with a sheet to prevent hair from getting into your clothes. Set up your home living room outside if possible to minimize damage. For people with long hair, it’s a bit more complicated. Revelation Hair and Beauty co-owner in Manuka, Sarah Marchetti, urged women to be patient and wait for salons to reopen for a haircut. “Don’t try to take out the kitchen scissors because you can just cause more disaster,” she said. “I know there have been people who cut their bangs and they’ve been doing it for years and if you feel like you have the confidence to do it then go for it. But if you don’t. never done before, no. ” For those getting their hair dyed in the salon, Ms Marchetti urged them not to buy hair dye in supermarkets or drugstores. “It’s more of a shitty job that we have to fix when you get back,” she said.

That doesn’t mean you can’t play with your hair at home. “If you try to grow it, there are actually some great YouTube videos and a lot of people on Instagram who specialize in up dos and that kind of stuff and creativity.” So there’s nothing there. hard to experiment, to try to style one’s hair. or curl your hair or even try old-fashioned crimping and stuff like that … I say yes, go for it. queue of hairy customers waiting for a haircut.
