Being forced to miss a visit to your hairdresser while in lockdown is a small price to pay to do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19. But, for many women who have opted to have a fringe, it's a tricky battle – do you attempt to trim your own so you can have your eyesight back? Or do you persevere through the awkward 'grow-out' phase until a professional can get their hands back on it? Jane Moore decided the former was a suitable option, especially since she was about to appear on This Morning, and took a pair of scissors to her iconic fringe for a much-needed tidy-up.
Jane Moore trimmed her own fringe - and it looks good!
Sharing her process on Instagram on Thursday morning, the Loose Women star showed off a portion of her freshly-cut fringe next to a longer section she had yet to tackle – and she didn't do a bad job! Captioning the snap, she wrote: "Halfway through cutting my own fringe before appearing on @thismorning View at just after 10.30. Also have a very attractive mullet developing at the back. How is YOUR lockdown hairstyle shaping up?"
Many of Jane's followers related to her dilemma and confessed they too had opted for a home fringe trim. One said: "I also cut my own fringe, my best friend is my hairdresser, I called her for advice, and her advice was 'don't do it' I did it anyway." Another added: "Did mine yesterday! Yours looking expertly done up to now!" And a third simply said: "I feel your pain."
