So, a fashion magazine had asked me to provide hair trend recommendations for 2020. In the moments of desperation for inspiration, I turn to humour. These, of course, never ended up on the glossy pages, but as I was going through my drafts, I thought our readers could appreciate a bit of humour.

1. QRAZY QUARANTINE
This is an easy one to start with. Leave your hair unwashed for at least four days. The more oil on your scalp, the more you are on trend. Easy.
2. SOCIAL DISTANCING UP-DO
Using a rubber band, hold your outgrown hair out of the way, as you are performing second deep clean of your flat this week.
3. LOCKDOWN BANGS
Best performed in the middle of the afternoon when you’ve run out of things to do. Make sure your scizzors are sharp and hand is stable.
(If you want to up your game of lockdown bangs, do it at 3AM at night, to secure maximum regrets next morning.)
An iteration of “Qrazy Qurantine”: braid your hair and leave it like that for a few days because you cannot be arsed to wash your hair anymore, but have to look presentable for your Zoom meeting.
5. WASH YOUR ROOTS
Run as a competition amongst your friends: who’s got the most striking contrast with their natural hair colour. Winner gets a pack of store-bought hair-dye.
BONUS: “FRESH START”
You shave your hair off and enjoy the “fresh spring breeze” tickling your scalp.
