Sometimes, even during the darkest of times, a little levity goes a long way. And since hairstylists are a fun-loving lot, it should come as no surprise that they have created a bevy of amazingly funny coronavirus memes to help us all have a little chuckle. Of course, some are insightful, like the post from @jessdeehair, and others are bittersweet, like the one from @soflytaxidermy, but most are just downright hilarious! Scroll down to see the top 9 most liked coronaviurs hair memes from the past month. Stay safe and stay sane, everyone!
9. Even Hairstylists Aren't Doing Their Hair in Quarantine
With 3,104 likes, this post really resonated with the Beauty Launchpad Instagram audience. For example, @colorbykyliemyst commented "Omg yes, the knot at the top of my head is permanent at this point from a constant bun," and @frosted_kale was worried we were spying on her: "Wait, can you see me??????"
8. Ways Clients Can Help Stylists During Quarantine
Receiving 3,390 likes, @jessdeehair's meme encouraged clients to help out their stylists, most of whom are not receiving any pay during this lockdown. As she says in her post, "Please consider taking any of these small steps to help out those who will go entirely without income during this shutdown. The latter is my personal favorite, but hey... who’s keeping score."
Great advice from @jessdeehair #beautylaunchpad • As you know, this quarantine is hitting us all hard in so many different ways. For some of us, it’s having to find alternative child care. For others, it’s keeping important supplies stocked during an extreme supply shortage. For a good many of us, it’s working in an industry that goes without revenue when services are unable to be provided, under any and all circumstances. My career is amazing. I am so blessed to do what I do, and get paid for it. But as every stylist knows, the one downside to this industry is, unfortunately, a one. We go benefit-less. No PTO, no work-from-home, and certainly no contingency plans. ? Well, what it means is there are people out there that you care about that will be going without any income for a minimum of two weeks. So while I sit here and think how ironic it is to want to get into prostitution during a time where I need to be 6 feet away from a potential john, I’m compelled to think of other ways. Sure, I could’ve started with that train of thought, but, I’m Jess. It’s colorful over here. Please consider taking any of these small steps to help out those who will go entirely without income during this shutdown. The latter is my personal favorite, but hey... who’s keeping score. Please tag your stylists, salon owners, clients, and service providers to help spread some creative awareness. *Any venmo payments will be considered deposits and applied to your next appointment- @jessdee7 on venmo*

3. All the Feels
Truly, when you get right down to it, many stylists are struggling with lack of human interaction almost as much of the lack of income. After all, there aren't many careers where you touch someone for a living. What's more, so many clients become friends, making this time apart doubly difficult. This is why this bittersweet post from @soflytaxidermy resonated with so many people, receiving 4,444 likes and 350-plus comments.
2. "We're Not OK"
With 4,588 likes and more than 300 comments, this lighthearted post from @kellymccormickhair underscores just how much hairstylists miss doing what they love most: making their clients look and feel their best. So, she did what any good hairstylist would do instead: make a great meme.
1. Cheers to That!
While beauty pros may not be considered to offer "essential services" by the government, clients all over the country have found out firsthand just how essential they are—and stylists have also realized it about themselves, as evidenced by this post that received nearly 6,500 likes and 165 comments. "No one takes us for granted anymore, that's for sure!" commented @colorbykyliemyst.
