Let's Make April National Bad Haircut Forgiveness Month

It’s April first but this isn’t a joke. I officially motion that we as a nation designate April to forgive—nay celebrate—bad haircuts.

We are in a unique moment, where many of us do not have access to salons or barbershops. As such, our hair is growing long, wild, and admittedly embarrassing. Not even celebrities are immune.

As we video-chat with friends, family, and co-workers, we are facing a brave new world of bad hair. It’s pushing some of us to experiment with home haircutting, for better and for worse.

But here’s the thing. It’s all okay if we proclaim April as National Bad Haircut Forgiveness Month. If you pull off a good cut, good for you! If you don’t, good for you too! This month, there are no wrong answers when it comes to hair. It’s all hair do’s no hair don’ts!

You want to take a whack at that mess that’s falling in your face, go for it. You want to give bangs a go? Now is your moment.

There are days for you to adjust to a new look before deciding to show it off in public/online. There is time to let a not-so-great cut grow out. Plus, one upside to all this social distancing is no one will get so close that they’ll notice where things got a bit wonky around your ears.

And hey, if you want to leave it for the experts and let your hair grow weirdly shaggy like a Dr. Suess character (is that just me?), that’s your prerogative. In this month of isolation for the greater good, we are all free to have bad hair. You do you and love your locks however they fall (off).
