Every season brings with it a new set of hair trends and this spring season is no exception. While the nation has been under quarantinemany people have gotten creative and innovative with their hair. The results? These new quarantine hair trends: 

Feathered Ends

Feathered ends may sound like a style straight out of the 70s, but it really refers to grown out layers. Since a professional haircut hasn’t been an option for a while, many people have let their hair grow out and have rocked their natural waves. Glamour magazine says feathers are inThe style, which was rocked by Jennifer Aniston in the mid-2000s, is the style of quarantine season.  

To achieve this look, even with shorter hair, divide your hair into four sections and braid it before bed. In the morning, take the braids out and lightly spray with water. Run your fingers through your hair to give it a natural finish. 


Braids have been quite popular during the quarantine, especially among black women. With relaxers, perms, and weaves out of the picture, braids have been the next best option. Some were lucky enough to get their braids put in before the quarantine and have carried the style through the lockdown. Musical artist Lizzo and gymnast Simone Biles, to name a few, have shown off their locks on social media.   

Going Gray

When you can’t have your hair styled and dyed professionally, what can you do? Wear it naturally, gray hairs and all. This trend has come about for some because they can’t get hair dye. For others, the thought of dying their hair on their own causes a panic attack, so the only option has been to go gray. Celebrities like Tamara Mowry and Sarah Silverman have both embraced their silvery strands.

Crazy Colors 

Ever wonder what you’d look like with pink hair? There’s no better time to experiment with your hair color than when you’re stuck at home, and that’s just what many people have done. Actress Anna Camp recently showed off her watermelon-colored ombré while actress Sarah Michelle Gellar now sports bubblegum pink hair.   

Buzzcut Season

It’s safe to say that Lorde’s “Buzzcut Season” is the quarantine hair anthem. The buzzcut has been a top choice for men as well as a last resort for any home hairdressers who tried and failed to successfully cut their hair. Celebrities like David Beckham, Cody Simpson, and even Pink have chosen the buzz.
