On Wednesday, March 24, the “Just Give Me a Reason” singer posted a video to her Instagram feed that she captioned, “Hair cuts and drinking Quarantine diaries.”
“This is my PSA,” she says at the start of the video, as she walks around her house eating a pretzel. “I don’t know how much you guys have been drinking during this whole quarantine thing. But I’ve decided to make it a sport. And I wanted to share something I did last night.”
She continued to say that when she’s drinking she gets ideas that at the time she thinks are just brilliant. “And last night I got the idea, ‘I can cut hair. I can totally cut hair. Why have I been paying people all this time?'”
At this point, she pulls back her red beanie to show off the disastrous self-snip from the night before.
“Look what I did,” she says as she runs her hands through her super short, messy buzzed sides. “What do you think? Good look?”
Just the day before, Ripa warned people against this sort of thing when shooting an at-home Live With Kelly and Ryan.
“People are cutting their own bangs…they’re calling it a pandemic trend. I’m not sure if I like the phrase pandemic trend, but they’re saying since [coronavirus] has taken hold of us, they’re cutting their hair out of boredom,” she said, noting that it’s not the boredom that’s getting to people, it’s their drinking.
“People don’t cut their hair out of boredom, they cut their hair because they’re drunk and they think they know how to cut hair,” she said. “I know from where I speak. I cut my bangs before the Daytime Emmys about 22 years ago and I’ve never gotten over it.”
