You’ve probably heard a saying, “New hair, new me.” While an updated hairstyle doesn’t change who you are as a person, it can definitely boost your self-esteem and bring much-needed change to that dull reflection in the mirror. New hair can make you feel like the best version of yourself—confident and beautiful. And this is what it’s all about. This is where professional hairstylists should ideally step in to guide you through your transformation and make sure there are no regrets. However, some people tend to trust their undiscovered talents and unleash their inner hairdresser by experimenting at home. The pandemic has brought us lots of hair disasters and fails to laugh about (check out here and here for the second round of giggles). What seemed like a good and cost-effective idea at first, most of the time, turns into a visit to the professional to get it fixed. But at the end of the day, hair has a magical ability to grow back and those who have never cut or dyed their own hair have never lived their lives to the fullest.
