Since the government has decided to close down restaurants, gyms, schools, cinemas, and bars, along with other businesses – the residents of UK are taking matters in their own hands and following a DIY protocol for their necessities as well as entertainment.
Interestingly, this has also led the ‘home-bound’ citizens to try their hand at personal grooming as well. With the salons for both – men and women closed around the country, many DIYers are searching for tips and instructions on how they can cut their own hair.
In fact, figures by Google Trends show an increase in the search term ‘how to cut own hair’ just a day after the government of the UK announced a nationwide lockdown. Youtube videos related to DIY haircuts, facials, and other grooming essentials are also becoming popular in the countries facing lockdown.
Of course, not being able to reach the salon for a scheduled haircut may not be a problematic situation – compared to the worldwide pandemic we are facing. However, it is an interesting trend and indicates how a good population of the country is trying to cope with the current scenario.
If you are also planning to pick up the scissors, then good luck and stay safe!
