MAP It has been almost a month since the country has shut down due to COVID-19. All non-essential businesses have locked their doors until further notice and this, unfortunately, includes barber shops. We understand that your hair might be looking a bit rough and hard to upkeep. That is why we are here to help, even if it is remotely. Today we will be giving you tips on taking care of your hair at home.  Please do not use scissors. The scissors you have at home like the ones in your toolbox or the ones in your kitchen are not for cutting hair. Do not use those scissors on your hair. They can damage your hair and are not safe for you or whoever is cutting your hair at home. However, if you do have hair-cutting sheers, please only use them for minor trimmings. For example, if you are trimming bangs do not wet them down first. By cutting bangs dry, whoever is cutting them at home will be able to see their true length. Also, trim bangs horizontally by cutting them in small sections and cutting each section to a slightly different length. This will create a much more natural look. Cutting straight across will result in a blunt and heavy line.  You can always resort to cutting a full head of hair. Resorting to this requires a pair of clippers and willingness to buzz it all off. Clippers are available widely online and most of them come with detachable guards. Each guard has a different number. The lower the number the more hair gets trimmed. We advise your home haircutter to start with a higher guard number, so you have more room for error. Be sure to tell whoever is cutting your hair to not follow head shape. Rather, draw up the side of the head first, then follow that straight line up to the ceiling. If you resort to this option, do not worry as your hair will probably grow back by the time this coronavirus shutdown is all over.  Last but not least, it will not hurt to give your hair a rest. Let it grow out. Give your hair a break by not putting any gel or product in it. Most people put gel or hairspray in their hair daily because they have to look a certain way and doing so is actually very harmful to your hair health. If you can help it, let it run free and grow it out. When the world opens back up your hair will be healthy and ready for a brand new cut.  There is not much we can do during these difficult times but we hope this advice was helpful. Please stay home, stay safe, and we look forward to catching up with you all in the near future.
