WITH the UK enduring numerous lockdowns over the past few months it’s safe to say that our beauty, and hair, regimes have suffered.
Salons and beauty parlours shut their doors, leaving people to cut their own hair, remove fake nails and do their own tans – sometimes with disastrous results.
Stacey Solomon shared her DIY beauty efforts on Instagram – which went very wrong
Even celebs aren’t immune to some dodgy lockdown looks, with Stacey Solomon sharing the results of a questionable home pedicure.
The mum-of-three took to Instagram to reveal her fake toe nail makeover, saying: “There was not ONE toenail to fit my massive weirdly shaped big toe. Neither wide enough or tall enough…
“Why is my big toe like this? The little ones are nice. What happened? It’s such a strange shape too!
“How do people pull off fake toenails?”

And Katie Price did some at-home pampering with her 13-year-old daughter, Princess, leaving fans to compare the mum-of-five’s glow to an orange.
Commenting on snaps of her makeover on Instagram, one fan said: “Tan went wrong.”
Another added: “Why does everyone look orange and like a cartoon?”

Keira Domachowski, 13, got a St Moriz 1 Hour Fast Tan mousse as she wanted quick results, but soon regretted it.
After slathering it on she realised it was shade ‘Darker Than Dark’, and she later shared snaps of her questionable shade.
Her mum Carole, 41, said: “It was a disaster. Her face was just so dark.”

Another mum got more than she bargained for after roping in her son to help her highlight her hair.
Liam ends up using tin foil and cling film to dye his mum’s locks, saying: “I think it’s gonna look great, people won’t even notice that I did it.”
But the end result was far from professional, with people comparing his mum to the ‘white witch’.

Nails were also a challenge, with one woman giving herself a full set of talons after a heavy night.
She shared a snap of her lilac-coloured nails to Twitter, saying: “Quarantine day 4: got extremely drunk and did my own acrylics last night, woke up with the longest nails I’ve ever had.”
Opting for a similar shade, another beauty fan was left looking like a kid had coloured in her nails, after attempting to do her own set.

And another woman was left with a red faced – literally – after trying to wax her upper lip.
Sharing her handiwork, which luckily can be covered by a mask, she wrote on Instagram: “Is anyone else struggling to adjust to their new at-home beauty routine?
“I accidentally burned my lip trying to wax yesterday… so painful. Tell me I’m not alone.”
