Day number 2049368 of lockdown (it feels like, at least). For a lot of us, our hair has now become a tangled mess of dark roots, ravenous for moisture. Just so you know, you’re not alone out there! If you’re not lucky enough to live with a hairdresser, it’s likely that you’ve played with the idea of a box dye. Well stop right there, sister. Show your support by waiting for us! Save your roots and let your hair grow long, we can’t wait to see you (hopefully) soon.
If you’re feeling down about the state of your locks, here’s some lockdown hair inspiration;

🌸Quarantine diaries🌸 – this weeks experiment… pink hair. That’s kind of it really… I haven’t acquired a new skill but I have joined world of warcraft and I have two pets on it called mintsaws and little sheena (one’s a dragonhawk and one’s a tiger). I’ve attempted a few morning facetime workouts with my friends and because ive still been doing bits of promo from home – a massive shout out is due to all the journalists who have been so patient with me while im on my quest to becoming a true tech wiz. Thank you to my @warnerrecords fam for my lovely flowers tooooooo 💐❤️
Everyone’s favourite pop goddess debuted her pink hair on Instagram. Though this is NOT us encouraging you to box dye your hair pink, just look at the display of her roots. They’re out and they’re proud. If it’s good enough for Dua Lipa, it’s good enough for us.
2. Margot Robbie
Ok, so this was pre-lockdown. Somehow Margot Robbie makes blonde hair/dark roots glamorous? This has lead to the birth of our new mantra: My roots are beautiful. I look like Margot Robbie. My roots are beautiful. I look like Margot Robbie.
Say this at least 10 times in front of the mirror everyday.
3. Chrissy Teigan
This looks just like us, if we were rich and had flawless skin. The high bun and scrunchie combo has been our lockdown mooood. It’s nice to see a celeb reflecting that. Plus is anyone else working on their manicures? 🙋♀️
4. Gabrielle Union
One thing lockdown is good for is giving your hair a breather. Gabrielle Union shows off her natural locks, using isolation as a break from her braids. Use this time to repair your hair! Go a few days between washes, lay off the straighteners and treat yourself to a conditioning mask, if you can. Then your hair will be ready to be bleached into oblivion when lockdown is lifted.
One half of everyone’s fave Love Island couple. Molly shows off her dark roots with some cute space buns! If there was ever a time to learn some new updos and plaits, it’s now. Get watching some tutorials on Youtube and by the time lockdown is lifted you’ll be a pro.
6. Mona Lisa
Possibly the most iconic brunette in history, letting her greys come through like a gracious queen. Showing us all how it’s done.
If in doubt, wear a hat/scarf/headband. One way to keep you distracted from your unruly locks is to cover it up with a hat. Or pretend you’re at a spa and wear your bath towel on your head all day. Anything to keep the box dye temptation away.
We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who isn’t stuck at home all day thinking about what to do with their hair, but is still working. Thank you key workers!
