Barbershops and salons are closed across the world due to lockdowns to prevent the spread of Covid-19, and many people are taking matters, or scissors into their own hands.
There are cuts, trims and even dye jobs that are being done at home and people are sharing the results with #Coronacut on social media. While some people nailed their haircuts others ended up with bangs and uneven layers.
Recently, UP’s Minister of State for Basic Education Satish Dwivedi was seen giving his son a haircut at home.

I gave myself a #coronacut short back and sides yesterday with some new clippers. And it didn’t go so badly (well, not badly enough that I resorted to Plan B – an all over cut). https://t.co/nxrTHbiQ6B pic.twitter.com/QnaLOmQOVC

As this piece pointed out, there’s not too much of a downside to a self-administered hairdo: “If you succeed, you will be left with a great haircut, and if you don’t do that great of a job, at least you tried. Besides, no one will really be seeing you for a while.”
