Jonathan Van Ness shared tips on cutting your own hair while in self-isolation with Jimmy Fallon.
“I think the most important advice is just to not. It’s just to not do it,” Van Ness told “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
“The average human head grows between a quarter of an inch and half an inch of hair a month so worse case scenario, this is going to give you, like, what? two inches, three inches of hair?” Van Ness said. “Try a new look, maybe you need a shag, maybe you need a new little bit of lenghth.”
Van Ness summarized: “Save your haircuts because what you dont want to do is mess up your hair cuts so bad that youre still growing that thing out after the quarantine.”
Van Ness said that most people have “will be fine” with a hair a little lengthier, and told Kimmel that he has “just the right amount of face” to grow his hair out a little longer.
Kimmel also chatted to Van Ness about his first children’s book: “Peanut Goes for the Gold.”
“We’re so excited about it,” Van Ness said. “I just feel like growing up, I loved children’s books don’t get me wrong, the classics were amazing. But I think I would have been very comforted as a child to know that there was a fierce, non-binary guinea pig who was going to seize a medal at the junior national championships, or at least would have the opportunity to go to the junior national gymnastics championships, so I knew that I needed to help create that space, very much like what Peanut did.”
