Bored in the house, in the house bored? Ditto. With weeks at home and hair salons only just starting to open back up in some areas (a business that obviously breaks the rules of safe six-foot social distancing), families have been taking haircuts and color into their own hands because, well, why not?

You've likely seen the at-home makeovers on your social media feeds over the last month or so. A little trim to a toddler's locks, a buzz cut for Dad, fresh dye for Mom—DIY hair care is totally doable. Of course you've probably also seen the too-short bangs or lopsided chop, but every reward comes with a little risk, right? And, well, most of us aren't going anywhere for a while anyway.

With school and work being done remotely, families across the nation have been taking their looks up a notch and getting really creative with their hair. From bright hues to funky styles, giving your kid a mini-makeover—or, heck, trying one out on yourself—could be the much-needed pep in your step you've been searching for. Parents have allowed their kids to play around with color as school comes to an end for the past several years, and a crazy hair makeover could be a great way to kick off summer vacation for your family too.

If you're pregnant, you might want to check in with your OB-GYN before coloring your hair. As for kids? Semi-permanent or temporary hair dye are safer options, but, as always, call your pediatrician with any concerns.
