The Queen Has Been Doing Her Own Hair In Lockdown

The Queen has been styling her own hair while in lockdown, an insider has told The Sun. Here's hoping she hasn't been tempted to whip out the clippers.

The 94-year-old monarch has made a couple of televised appearances since lockdown was introduced - one directly about coronavirus in April and one in honour of the 75th anniversary of VE earlier this month.

Her hair was looking as smart as ever during the speeches, and now a royal insider has revealed that it was all her own handiwork.

The unnamed source told the Sun: "The Queen has done her own hair for years at Balmoral during her summer holidays and so she's used to it.

"She washes, dries and sets it herself - and she's very good at it! She has had lots of practice and so she knows exactly what to do."

The Queen is isolating at Windsor castle with her husband Philip, who turns 99 next month, and a team of 22 staff.

The source added: "Her dresser Angela Kelly has been helping her, but the Queen does it all herself. It is typical of her that she just keeps calm and makes the best of things."

Her Maj has been using the same hairdresser for 23 years - Ian Carmichael, who will usually go out to see the Queen once a week to make sure her barnet looks spot on, but due to lockdown rules Carmichael can't visit.

Fortunately for the Queen, she's had a fair amount of experience when it comes to grooming her own locks - the same cannot be said for everyone and lockdown has resulted in some absolute howlers as people try and give themselves a fresh trim at home.

We've seen mullets, Dumb and Dumber style Lloyd Christmas jobs and whatever this is:

One fella even tried his hand at a bit of a DIY hair transplant after collecting up his hair trimmings and gluing them to his dad's head to help cover his receding hairline. Flawless.

Still, look on the bright side, at least they can grow out their dodgy haircuts while we're all staying inside.
