After long enough time has passed, self-isolating leads us all to try some pretty weird stuff. As the world continues to isolate at home, the biggest celebrities are also stuck within four walls, and even though those are usually the walls of a mansion, they too seem to slowly but surely lose their mind. And when hair salons are closed and personal contact is limited, many of them resort to do beauty experiments, or just embrace their natural looks (and locks). Here are the best and worst celeb quarantine makeovers - or in most cases, makeunders - as shared on social media.
