For most of us, 2020 meant working from home. And that came with plenty of perks – mostly getting to wear a never-ending stream of pjs and not having to bother with beauty regimes beyond basic hygiene. Personally, I haven’t worn a full face of makeup in roughly eight or nine months…I’ve lost count. Working from home has also meant that we’ve all had to become our own at home experts in certain fields. How many of us have become our own baristas?

But perhaps the biggest change that the pandemic brought has been the nightmarish task of trying to keep up with our hairstyling, given that many salons and spas have spent a majority of the year closed. While I, personally, did manage to squeeze in two cuts when my salon was open, 2020 was the year of attempting to trim my own bangs on a monthly basis.

Even though salons and spas have been closed, there have been plenty of people trying to get resourceful while at home as their own stylists. Judging by the Google’s end of the year search reports, there are lots of people who don’t want to let their beauty slip.
