What Can I Do With My Hair During Self-Isolation?

steven scarr hairdressing in coxhoe durhamAs we all face a period of lock down many of us are left asking ourselves ‘what on earth am I going to do with my hair’?

Firstly, it’s important that we follow government advice and avoid spreading the Coronavirus by avoiding going out. Here, we bring you some top tips to help you cope with your hair at home…

Areas We Cover





Top Tip # 1 – Do NOT Cut Your Own Hair

As tempting as it may be, trimming your own hair is not an easy job! We have the skills, knowledge and years of experience to create stunning, precise hair cuts & styles- something you can not achieve yourself at home.

Instead, why not invest a little time checking out some videos on how to style your hair or how to do a professional blow dry?   

Top Tip # 2 – Do NOT Colour Your Own Hair

The results of DIY hair colour can often be fairly disastrous – and we cannot pop round to sort it out for you. Your Steven Scarr colour expert has likely used multiple colours to achieve your perfect shade, many box hair dyes are prone to fading and changing colour so will not give the results you are used to.   

Use this time as an opportunity to spend a little time giving your hair some TLC. A professional hair masque for colour treated hair is a great way to keep locks looking shiny and healthy. 

Top Tip # 3 – Move Your Parting

Altering where you wear your parting is a quick and easy way to disguise your roots. Have fun with a zig-zag parting if you have highlighted hair or opt for a low side parting to liven up flat roots & create a completely new look.

Top Tip # 4 – Follow The Trend For Wearing Head Scarves

Now is the perfect time to get creative with your hairstyle and try out loads of different looks that you’ve seen the celebs sporting on Instagram.

Head scarves and hand tied hair bows are a great way to cover up unwanted greys or hide greasy roots!
