Instagram Captions for When You've Cut Your Own Hair

Desperate times call for desperate measures. If you've gotten so fed up with your increasingly shaggy and unkempt hair while you've been socially distancing that you've cut it yourself, you're in good company.

Even with some salons reopening, many of us have already made that leap and quickly discovered that it was a big mistake. At least hair always grows back, right? If you're courageous enough to share your own handiwork with the world, keep scrolling for some Instagram captions that might be the perfect complement to your self-cut hair pics.
