As we all adjust to life at home, a lot of us are struggling with the closing of hairdressers and barbers and not knowing what to do with our hair. For some of us, roots are the problem, for others, it’s greys or being in desperate need of a trim.
However, one thing that’s reassuring to know is that it’s not just us struggling. Even celebrities -who usually look so polished- are in the same boat and (luckily for us), a lot of them have been taking to social media to document their isolation hair transformations.
Whether it’s trying out a new hair colour (because really, when better to try it?), embracing their natural locks or shaving it all off completely, we’re seeing it all! Scroll to see some of our favourites.
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland proudly showed off her DIY quarantine makeover on Instagram. The actress revealed that she’s dyed her brunette hair a bright cherry hue, reminiscent of Ariel’s iconic red hair in The Little Mermaid. She even quoted Ariel herself, captioning the snaps “I wanna be where the people are…”! Disney, if you’re reading this, we think we just found your new princess! Credit: @sarahhyland
Miley Cyrus has just debuted a daring new look! Her mum, Tish Cyrus, cut Miley’s hair into a super short pixie-mullet. To help her achieve her punky new ‘do, Tish had a celeb hairstylist talk her through the process. Does this also mean new music is coming? Credit: @mileycyrus
Ahead of her City of Lover concert being aired on TV, Taylor Swift took to Instagram to celebrate by showing off new pastel pink and blue hair highlights, with this summery picture.

Lana Del Rey has joined the lockdown hair transformation club, sharing this photo of herself with honey blonde hair.

And the award for coolest mum of the year goes to…! Credit: @sarahmgellar
