It’s that time of the year when Google releases the trending searches of the year. We admit it; we were thrilled, mildly surprised, and even relieved in some cases to know that we weren’t the only ones Googling certain things. What really caught our eye, however, was the list of the most Googled beauty questions of 2020.
There is no denying the fact that our beauty regimens have been altered forever by the pandemic. In a year that has been a far cry from the usual, it’s interesting to read all the beauty doubts that people the world over typed into Google. We’ll give you a hint: most of the questions on the list are centered around haircare and styling. While most of us are well settled into our carefully curated skincare routines, haircare is usually outsourced. When our trusted hairdressers were forced to close down during the lockdowns, most of us desperately turned to Google with our queries.
Here are the most Googled beauty questions of 2020.
How to Cut Your Own Hair?
This one hardly comes as a surprise. Didn’t we all, at some point during the lockdowns, seek Google’s help with our DIY haircut?
How to Color Your Hair at Home?
We aren’t surprised at all that this made it to the most Googled beauty questions list. Where did you think all the hair dyes that disappeared off store shelves were going anyway?
How to Dermaplane?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation method involving a blade. Well, aren’t we glad people took the time out to educate themselves on the technique?
How to Style Curtain Bangs?
Half of these were probably googled in tears as the aftermath of some seriously questionable DIY bangs.
How to Plop Your Hair?
We are assuming these were googled before Zoom meetings or other digital social engagements.
How to Cut Men's Hair?
Yes, how do you cut men’s hair? Surely not the way Pheobe cut Joey’s hair in Friends.
How to Style Curly Hair?
While this one is hardly 2020 specific, we hope all the people that Googled this found a fabulous hairdo that suits them.
How to Wash Hands?
While this might sound a tad bit ridiculous, with a deadly virus on the prowl, it’s best to be sure, isn’t it?
