I have a confession to make: I was so overjoyed when hair salons reopened last month that I hastily booked an appointment and merrily made my along to the salon chair where I requested that the hairdresser chop it all off without much though about whether that's what I really wanted. Nevertheless, I'm now sporting a one-length bob that falls just past my chin and trying not to spend too much time scrolling through images of people with lovely long locks. Because I'll be totally honest, long hair is looking really good to me right now. I'm not alone either. I recently caught up with a few hairstylists to find out what the most popular post-lockdown haircuts have been and it turns out that a lot of their clients are actually wanting to keep their lengths in tact—simply asking for a trim to keep any damage at bay.
