Let’s have a bit of Thursday fun in Sawbridgeworth & Bishop's Stortford with this look at what lockdown is doing to people’s hairstyles and how to cope without your regular haircut.
When Denmark entered from lockdown this week where did hordes of the dashing Danes head to?
The pubs? – maybe. The coffee shops? – perhaps. The barbers or hair salons? Yep.
Danish barbers and hairdressers reported record numbers of people flocking to get their post lockdown locks sorted out.
And people across social media in Sawbridgeworth & Bishop's Stortford have been reporting tales of overgrown mops weighing them down.
Some brave ‘have a go’ heroes have attempted a bit of hair DIY with often traumatic looking results.
With that in mind, we’ve come up with five classic haircuts to consider cultivating while we have at least another fortnight under lockdown.
Just for Men
Mullet Mania - In at number one, it must be the marvellous mullet. Simply shave the sides of your head, let the back grow and voila – you’ll be looking like a celeb. Unfortunately, that would be Billy Ray Cyrus circa 1992 or for Netflix fans Joe Exotic of The Tiger King.
Comb Over Classic – There’s no Match of the Day on now so why not create your tribute to one of our country’s biggest sporting icons Sir Bobby Charlton? In his footballing pomp, he sported a comb-over Donald Trump would be proud of. Do it for Sir Bobby.
Check out the Buns – Getting a little untidy at the back? Get creative and bake yourself a man bun. This hairstyle was popular more than 2000 years ago during the Chinese Han Dynasty. Maybe it would have been better just leaving it there.
Lovely Ladies Locks
The internet is also awash with ideas of hairstyles women can try during this period of social distancing.
Bowled Over – Perhaps the most straightforward haircut of all. Simply place a medium-sized bowl over your head, grab some scissors and cut carefully around it. Job done, potentially badly.
A New Page – The page boy look is one that takes courage and care to pull off well. Disclaimer. There is a chance if you get it wrong you could end up looking like Wee Jimmy Krankie.
Alternatively, you could just think to hell with hair. There’s a lot more to be concerned about than your Barnet so maybe take this opportunity in isolation to secretly grow your hair out, up, and beyond (sorry, we got a bit Buzz Lightyear there).
At Mackay Property we like to let our hair down with the best of them, but we’re still working hard to make sure we’re a cut above the rest when lockdown comes to an end.
We hope you enjoyed this little bit of Thursday fun. And remember Stay at Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives and keep loving Sawbridgeworth & Bishop's Stortford.
