Hillary Duff before and after her lockdown makeover

It's hard to ignore the sudden spate of celebrity lockdown transformations. Actress Hilary Duff dyed her hair bright blue, a long line of celebrities from Jennifer Love Hewitt to Ricky Martin have dyed their hair pink and everyone from David Beckham to Tallulah Willis have taken out the clippers and gone full buzz cut.

At first glance, it looks like a cynical, career-enhancing ploy on the part of these celebrities. They've left behind the world of red carpets, flashing cameras and adoring fans and it seems as if they're desperately trying to stay relevant to an increasingly jaded audience. 

Look a little closer, however, and you'll notice that the quarantine makeover isn't just reserved for the rich and famous. It's trending among civilians too.
