quarantine haircut

Quarantine haircut photos are being shared across Canada and they're hilariously bad

Quarantine haircut might sound like the name of an edgy '80s rockband, but it's actually a phenomenon that's taking over Canada at the moment.

With barber shops temporarily shuttered, millions of Canadians are being faced with the choice between growing Rapunzel-like locks or taking the more drastic DIY route.

Some Canadians are asking a trusted family member or friend to take scissors to their hair.

And a few Canadian men are handing the scissors to their wives.

While other men are attempting to tackle the problem themselves.

Some quarantine haircuts are going surprisingly well.

While other quarantine haircuts are going — er — less well.

And some haircuts have been straight-up disastrous.

With Canadian health officials predicting that the COVID-19 pandemic could last for up to two years, it seems likely that we'll all have to undergo a quarantine haircut at some point.

Just make sure to give the scissors to someone that you trust.
