If you’re going to cut your own hair, do it under the expert guidance of celebrity hair stylist George Northwood


There are two types of people. Those who threw caution to the wind and cut their own bangs within the first two weeks of lockdown, and those who would never, ever lift a scissors to their own hair.

Hair stylists are now offering virtual haircuts on video platforms like Zoom and Alexa Chung recently gave it a go.

Taking direction from British hairdresser George Northwood, whose clients include Meghan Markle and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, she started with a few tentative snips before taking a rather more gung-ho approach with her trademark bangs.
