South Africans have spent almost two months in lockdown in order to curb the spread of the new coronavirus…
But while the economy (and our bank accounts) continue to shrink, our hair and our waistlines continue to grow. Millions of people around the world are facing similar frustrations as countries restrict social movement and interaction.
We’re resorting to desperate measures – reaching for the kitchen scissors, or the clippers and attempting some daring DIY styles. Some work, some don’t! We’re all seriously appreciating the skills of our stylists right now!
This week, SA’s rugby captain, Siya Kolisi shared a hilarious video on Instagram about his DIY home haircut done by a family member. We think it still looks great though!
Here are some hilarious DIY haircut fails from around the world – Don’t try this at home:

Good morning. I thought my clippers were charged. In fact, they were not— at least not all the way. So now we wait. Luckily, my mom is standing by (laughing, mind you) to fix this travesty. #haircutfail pic.twitter.com/83MQrVbXiZ
