Lena Dunham Cut Her Own Bangs, Plus More Celebs Doing Their Own Hair Styling at Home

Lena Dunham

While quarantining in London, the Girls star decided it was no better time to take a chance at cutting her own bangs. The fringe didn’t end up coming out exactly how she intended, but that won’t stop Dunham from rocking her DIY look. “Just a little update on cutting my own bangs in quarantine- I’ve made a personal choice to embrace the uneven results!!!” she said on her Instagram Story.

Teri Hatcher

For the second time during quarantine, the actress took her roots into her own hands and shared a DIY hair dyeing video on Instagram.

“The last few months right? It has just taken a lot out of all of us and so I sort of let my hair go, [as] you can see,” Hatcher says to kick off the video. “I have not made getting my hair dyed a priority.”

She goes on to say that while she thinks gray looks great on some women, she’s just “not ready” to embrace hers just yet and is actually “very excited” to spend her Saturday evening dyeing her hair.

She once again used her go-to Madison Reed Radiant Color Kit in “Sondrio Brown 6.5” and for the first time, tried out its Color Reviving Gloss, to liven up her brassy strands. In total it took her under an hour to get “beautiful, shiny, voluminous” hair.

Joy Behar

With limited options during self-isolation, Joy Behar let her husband Steve Janowitz choose between two pandemic-safe activities: go on a walk or dye her hair. During Thursday’s episode of The View, the television personality said he chose the latter — and did a “pretty bad” job.

“There are stripes and dots,” she said, pushing back her red hair to reveal orange roots. “I’m not a cougar anymore, I’m a zebra at this point! It’s just the worst. Plus, he got spots all over the wallpaper in my bathroom.”

She then showed her co-hosts the splashes of dye on the bathroom wall and asked them if they think the spots will come out. They weren’t very reassuring: “I don’t think so,” Sunny Hostin said. While Meghan McCain joked, “Probably not. It’s probably ruined forever.”
