Ok let’s face it. We’re all going crazy. From Layla crying because she can’t eat Nando’s anymore to that New Yorker telling his neighbour who’s singing by the window to “shut the f*** up”, literally everyone is losing it.
But it’s not all zoom yoga classes, live stream parties or baking sessions that are bringing us comfort—according to the thousands of hair pictures I’ve seen littered across my Instagram feed over the past few days, it seems like people are overcoming their nerves with experimental dyes. Case in point: Dua Lipa, Elle Fanning, Georgia May Jagger and Ricky Martin all have one thing in common. Neon pink hair.

🌸Quarantine diaries🌸 – this weeks experiment… pink hair. That’s kind of it really… I haven’t acquired a new skill but I have joined world of warcraft and I have two pets on it called mintsaws and little sheena (one’s a dragonhawk and one’s a tiger). I’ve attempted a few morning facetime workouts with my friends and because ive still been doing bits of promo from home – a massive shout out is due to all the journalists who have been so patient with me while im on my quest to becoming a true tech wiz. Thank you to my @warnerrecords fam for my lovely flowers tooooooo 💐❤️
There’s one celebrity who also joined the party but decided to play by her own rules: Bella Hadid.
It was only a matter of time before the supermodel picked up on the hair-dyeing trend, but Bella decided to take a more cautious approach, using a TikTok filter to turn her hair grey.
Bella already made the move from dark brown to honey blonde this year, then also cutting her long bob to bechin-length.

Deemed taboo and ugly by traditional (ahem, sexist) standards, grey has often been a divisive hair colour—if not controversial. But women of all ages and backgrounds have now started to reclaim and embrace grey hair. To such an extent that young girls are now ditching basic bleaches for grey and silver washes (L’Oréal even crowned silver the best hair colour of the year in 2019).
You’ve watched every possible show on Netflix? Bored of online parties? Already given yourself bangs? Started baking your own bread? Well you might be asking yourself, “what the hell do I do next”. Take a cue from Bella Hadid and dye your hair grey. At least, you’ll be coming out of this quarantine really looking brand new.
