The Bachelor star Sam Wood has proven even celebrities can get it serious long when it comes to style, especially when in the grips of stage-four restrictions.
The dad-of-two is currently riding out Victoria’s stage four coronavirus restrictions with wife Snezana in the couple’s Melbourne home, where the extreme circumstances drove him to commit a heinous crime of fashion this week.
The 34-year-old has been wearing his salt and pepper locks longer and longer as the lockdown stretches into months, and this week decided to tidy up his unruly hairdo with some help from his wife.
Taking to Instagram to share the results of the ill-fated mission, the former Bachelor revealed a very... blunt new look.
The former trailing tresses have been lopped into a bob that sits right on the fitness guru’s ear-line, with a structure blunt line creating a very distinct silhouette.
Fans spot hairdo doppelgangers
The dreadful hairdo is receiving some unflattering comparisons from gobsmacked fans, who can’t stop spotting similarities.
Many couldn’t see past what can only be described as a Doopity-’Do, comparing the reality star to the most iconic force in the world of Willy Wonka.
“Weren’t they the haircuts of the Oompa Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?” one asked.
“Lord Farquaad vibes!” another said, referring to the iconic Shrek villain.
“Need a tunic and mandolin,” said another who was getting strong medieval minstrel vibes.
“Nicolaus Copernicus,” said one person.
Another saw the haircut as a beautiful metaphor.
“If 2020 was a haircut, this is it,” they stated.
He also attracted some very high-profile doppelganger claims, one person compared the reality star to Nicolaus Copernicus while another said he was reminding him of Queen Elizabeth II.
As for Sam, he just introduced himself as his new alter-ego, ‘Bob’.
“Hi, my name is Bob,” he captioned the snap. “I let my wife give me a Covid cut. Oopsy.”
He’s not the first to fall afoul of the dreaded COVID cut, with Yahoo Lifestyle delving into the remedy for a bad lockdown decision with RAW’s Anthony Nader recently.
Prince Frederick of Denmark also had a rather unruly mop of hair by the time the European nation’s lockdown ended, though with the help of a professional he avoided Sam’s error entirely.
