“Nail Salons-Closed. Hair Salons-Closed. Lash Salons-Closed. It’s about to get real ugly out here”

The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak became a pandemic. Many people weren’t able to visit nail salons, hair salons or lash salons. A joke was posted on Twitter by Hanna (and another) on March 16, 2020:

“Nail salons—closed
Hair salons—closed
Lash salons—closed.
It’s about to get real ugly out here.”


“I’ve noticed a lot of you are not posting selfies anymore since the beauty salons have closed” and “We are about 3 weeks away from knowing everyone’s true hair color” are related jokes/quotes.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak is an ongoing global outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China on 1 December 2019, spreading to every province-level administrative division of the country by 29 January 2020. On 30 January, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern following an increase in the number of cases outside China.
