What quarantine hairstyle are you aiming for? – the 15 best/worst

the poke - 1 week ago

Although Boris Johnson has promised to review the UK lockdown after three weeks, it’s pretty obvious that social distancing is going to be the way ahead for quite some time.

Your suggestions make us hope we get to see everyone emerge into the light whenever quarantine ends, because that’s going to be hilarious.

These were our favourites.
