Your partners are not yet trusted to cut your hair

80% of Britons don’t trust their partner to cut their hair – even in lockdown!

Two months with no hairdressers and barbers has left most of us with a stark choice: 1) to embrace a new wilder look, or 2) to take the ultimate relationship step and let your partner cut your hair.

The majority of you told us that trusting your partner with a pair of scissors was a step too far.

Did your partner ever cut your hair before lockdown? | eOpinion.orgLetting your partner loose with a pair of scissors was an (almost) unheard of phenomenon before 23 March 2020.

Anne Y from London summed it up perfectly:

Are you joking?! No way!

Has your partner cut your hair since lockdown started? | eOpinion.orgAlthough a few more brave souls have visited the pop-up hairdresser at home since lockdown than before 23 March 2020, the vast majority of us still prefer the wild look to a well-meaning amateur being given free reign.

An anonymous eOpinion community member from Birmingham said:

I know my partner meant well but I am going to have to wear a hat when I go to the shops for the next few weeks.

Are women or men better amateur hairdressers? | eOpinion.orgBeing better at something can of course be subjective. Your eOpinions show us that women are 4 times more likely to be trusted to cut their partner’s hair than men are.

Customers (and salon owners) have everything crossed

Your eOpinions show that we can’t wait to be back in the expert hands of a professional hairdresser or barber.

That moment can’t come too soon either for all the closed salons across the country.

The survey was conducted on with 2,003 people on 18, 19 and 20 May 2020 and is nationally representative.
