Mostly A: Bangs

This year’s been tough on everybody, but you’ve somehow managed to keep your emotions in check. Since you’re emotionally stable and your decision to make a drastic hair change is probably only impulsive, you’ll need a generally safe hairstyle. Cut your own bangs using only a pair of safety scissors and your bathroom mirror. If you do it right, they’ll look cute. If not, you can wear a thick headband until the hair grows back.


Mostly B: Dyed hair

You’re cool and trendy enough to know all about the 2020 dye trends, so try a different hair color. Gather inspiration from influencers online and dye it using boxed color from the closest beauty supply store, whether it be the tips of your hair or the entire thing. Convince your friends to do it too, and you can look like a pack of Skittles together.


Mostly C: Mullet

Congrats, you’re part of the lucky few who can pull off a mullet! You’re creative and unique, and too blissfully unaware to care about how unpopular mullets are. Things naturally look cool on you, so this short-in-front, party-in-the-back hairstyle will too. Spice things up by dying it your favorite color.

Mostly D: Shaved head

Between the current political, medical and economic situations, and your non-ideal coping methods, you’re at the end of your rope. Shaving your head is a good way to express your panic. Since you’re used to switching up your style, going bald won’t be such a big stretch for you. You can justify this poor coping mechanism by donating your hair to charity.
