With hairdressing premises out of bounds for the foreseeable future, concerns are growing about how we will maintain our locks during the coronavirus lockdown.

However, Emily Ratajkowski has - quite literally - taken matters into her own hands by giving herself a cut at home in New York.

The model, 28, showed off her new layered style in a new post to her 26.1m followers on Instagram as she sat in a car while wearing a black top.

Captioning the image, she wrote: “Gave myself a haircut and went for a drive so.”

It comes as a website has launched offering men a 20-minute hair cut tutorial costing £15 with a professional barber via a video call.

Lockdown Haircut, described as the UK’s first virtual barber shop, allows them to be taken step-by-step through a trim at home.

Customers will need to own their own tools - including a razor or clippers, as well as a comb - and they will also need a laptop with a webcam.
