It's been a long time since we were allowed to go and get our hair cut, with lockdown and everything, but fingers crossed that all changes soon. But when we're finally comfortable to return to salons for a much-needed trim, there is one thing a hairstylist wants you to remember. Posting on TikTok Brooke Udy Clark urged people to always look down when getting their hair cut – and showed why it was so important. In her video, Brooke can be seen cutting a woman's hair and says, "Have you ever wondered why your stylist makes you look down for a trim?" The woman's hair is damp but initially appears to have had a lovely, neat trim along the bottom, looking all one length. However, after being instructed to look down, the client's hair is brushed through with a comb to reveal a "shelf" of hair that was hidden underneath and looks very wonky. Brooke adds, "The underneath may look even but there is a shelf. "Always look down for your trim." Her video went viral on the social media platform, being watched over 1.3 million times and garnering more than 73,000 likes.
