The coronavirus lockdown in the UAE has finally been lifted, with shops and salons beginning to slowly reopen. But, with many salons and barbers running at a maximum of 30 per cent, getting a fresh trim might not be as easy as it seems.
Sure, it might have been over a month since you last had a trim. Maybe two months, if you timed your last haircut badly, but just because you can go and get your ears lowered, it doesn’t necessarily mean you should.
In the meantime, if you’re feeling brave, cutting your own locks could be the way to go. Just don’t think it’s going to be easy. Barbering is a respected profession for a reason. In the same way that you wouldn’t try and rewire your house or plumb in new taps, you’d be foolish to approach cutting your hair without some expert advice.
To help, GQ Middle East sat down with Fayeez Alsalwm of CHALK. Fayeez gave us the lowdown on how to give yourself a lockdown haircut that won’t result in another six weeks of self-imposed quarantine.
From the best way to shave your own head to the do’s and don’ts of cutting your hair and trimming your beard, Fayeez has got you covered.
