Corona Part 7: How we’re dealing with the lockdown extension
Whatever you do, just don't cut your own bangs
Yoh guys, I have hit a few lows this week. Shit got real really, really fast. But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t have good moments or laugh my ass off. I keep on thinking back to one of my favourite quotes “This too shall pass. It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.” Here are some of the things I laughed at this week.
Whatever you do, don’t cut bangs
As our real hair colour starts to emerge and our hair gets a little bit longer than we’d like, you may be tempted to cut your own hair.
Whatever you’re going through, resist the urge to cut your own hair with kitchen scissors after you skipped through a YouTube video. And before you say I’d never do that, remember that Google search stats tell a different story.
If you are up to cutting your own or someone else’s hair that you are currently in lockdown with, there is a service that can help. You Probably Need A Haircut costs US$18 (R336) and gets you a one-on-one with a hairdresser who will coach you through cutting your own hair. Although the reviews seem positive, I don’t have the type of self-confidence to pull off cutting my own hair.
I think box hair dye is OK as long as you are not covering expensive salon highlights or trying to go blonde when you have brown hair. Those kinds of things are best left to the pros. Now is not the time to go purple.
I heard the devil’s voice tonight and it said: “Buy box dye tomorrow.”
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
