WITH the UK in the midst of another lockdown it means no more fake lashes, acrylic nails or hair extensions for the time being.
But if you’re one of the unlucky people who got caught between lockdowns with a full set of falsies or head of synthetic hair, you’re probably facing the daunting job of removing them yourself.

With no chance of getting them professionally removed in the near future, the 22-year-old took matters into her own hands – and grabbed her dad’s tools.
She picked up a pair of pliers and painstakingly removed the blonde locks, sharing the excruciating process online.
Sophie uploaded a clip to TikTok, vowing ‘never again’, as she grimaced in pain while attacking her head with the tools.

She said: “I decided to take my extensions out as we’re in a full blown lockdown.
“Yes these are my dad’s tools.”
Sophie said she was ‘frustrated’ and having a ‘mental breakdown’ as she reached the half-way point.
