In the face of a pandemic and this dreadful, but necessary lockdown, we all know that the sistas have been out there doing their best to make lemon out of lemonade when it comes to their quarantine hair and beauty routines.

Our faves like Gabrielle Union, Kelly Rowland and Blac Chyna are using this time to embrace their natural hair and inspiring us to do the same. Meanwhile, you got Taraji giving us hair tutorials like a beast with Savannah James and Ayesha Curry opening up their own family salons in their kitchens and bathrooms! Better yet: folks like Halle Berry and Serena Williams have been showing us their skincare routines using products that even us mere mortals can afford.

But how are the brothas faring in all this?

As I wrote before, the closing of barbershops in the past few weeks did have them shook, but from the looks of it, they’ve adapted and it seems like some of them are embracing their age and realizing that there are no rules to grooming in the apocalypse. So say hello to salt and pepper beards and even ratched hairlines, which is quite OK in our books…for now LOL

From Will Smith to Sterling K Brown to Sean “Diddy” Combs, here’s what the fellas are looking like in the lockdown:

Yes, LeBron you are well on your way to looking like Cast Away! I bet Savannah doesn’t mind at all!
