These Celebrity Haircut Tutorials Show You How to Trim Your Own Hair

There’s no doubt about it: we’re all getting shaggy here in quarantine land. With salons beginning to re-open in many states, some of us are more than ready to rekindle our relationships with our favorite stylists. Others may still understandably be feeling cautious about sitting down in that salon chair. Americans who would rather not take a chance with germs are facing an unprecedented coiffure quandary: do we ride out the next phase of social distancing looking like Cousin It? Or do we take matters into our hands with an at-home haircut?

There’s no doubt that the mere mention of a DIY haircut is enough to send some of us into flashbacks of middle school trauma, the bowl cut your mom gave you right before school picture day, the dreaded Flowbee, or the Suck Cut of Wayne’s World fame. The hirsute among us can breathe a sigh of relief though because things have come a long way since then. Without further ado, here are 15 celebrity hair tutorials to watch if you want to learn how to trim your own hair at home.
