There’s a small handful of things you can treat yourself with. Scented candles, self-help books, home-made nachos, and rewatching every season of Girls are fine for a while. Until you stumble upon that pale figure staring back from the mirror. Chipped nails and undyed hair hint that the line has been crossed.

And sooner than you know it, your quarantined home turns into a DIY beauty salon. It charges nothing and covers all essential services from fake tan, manicure, and hair trimming. All executed by you—a professional rookie. Surprise surprise, a quarantine beauty fail accomplished! We have compiled a list of the best lockdown beauty disasters that will either inspire or curb your enthusiasm for good.

Giving yourself some time to focus on you and relax may be exactly what you need the most. You may not have a better opportunity to focus on yourself than the quarantined days any time soon. But before getting yourself into a full-blown home-made spa, you might wanna know some tips about basic beauty treatments.

If you feel like you need a hair trim, you'd better take some time off from cutting altogether. Stay focused on your hair health and consider adding conditioning masks or moisturizing treatments to your beauty routine. After the crisis is over, you will be stunned to see your luscious locks well-rested and ready to take on the summer look.

Another great tip is to try washing your hair less. Start slow—skip days at a time and see how your locks are feeling. There are natural oils on our scalp that boost hair health, but we usually wash them all off in daily shampooing sessions.

I'm reluctant to call what my wife did to me a haircut. But here it is. Well done wife, another string to your bow.

You can definitely try out a quarantine nail salon at home. But it’s better to stay away from gel or dip manicures altogether. A regular polish of your fave color is a great way to get that lively look. Try out colors that you usually don’t wear—quarantine is a judgement-free zone, and it’s an excellent time to experiment a little.

I’m not a hairdresser. Corona forced me to be a hair dresser. This is why I am not and should not be a hairdresser. (I had my phone in my hand and it accidentally took a burst pic which captured the “what have I done” look on my face.)

Today my partner learned that you shouldn’t put off a haircut until the apocalypse when the only person left to do it (we’re in NYC) is your girlfriend who has never even trimmed her own ends. He calls this look “Cambodian garbage Hitler.”
