Trust the lockdown to bring out hidden talents of people, whether it be celebrities or common man. While staying safe and protected from the virus was the topmost priority of people till now, straggly beards, misshapen eyebrows and hairy legs have made people get creative with the tools at home.

Celebrities, who usually have an army of people behind them to keep them looking well-groomed always, have taken up the barber’s scissors to experiment with their locks at home. Commoners, too, are hit by the urgency to chop off those unkempt locks after a month cooped up inside going by the search terms trending on YouTube.

Anushka Sharma was one of the first to try her hand at snipping errant locks, with hubby Virat Kohli turning guinea pig. The result was pretty neat, we say. Joining the bandwagon then were a whole host of celebrities like actor Patralekhaa who posted a short video where she chopped off boyfriend and actor Rajkummar Rao’s hair. Huma Qureshi, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor, Pulkit Samrat and veteran actor Neena Gupta were among others who went snip happy with their siblings and better halves.

While these celebs seemingly know what they are doing, commoners didn’t have it that easy. From horrendous katori cuts to buzzed styles gone wrong, there is plenty of material to laugh out about floating across the social media. Check out some of them here.
