Jenna Bush Hager had a remote interview recently where she spoke about maintaining one's hair during self-isolation amid the novel coronavirus outbreak. The TV host shared some advice she’d gotten from a late family member.


This week, Bush Hager, 38, was interviewed on Instagram Live by Jackson Kennedy for “In The Room.” She spoke to Kennedy about the things she appreciated during this time.

The “Today With Hoda & Jenna” co-host said: "But I think that's one of the beautiful things about this time, even though it's a time of great hardship for so many, is that simplicity.” Bush Hager shared how she was going back to the way she was raised.

The star noted how some of the simple things included eating each dinner with the family. Being able to sit together at the table, laugh, and play games.


The TV personality added: "Realizing that things like hair highlights don't matter." She confessed that she now had some gray hair showing because of the inability to go to hair salons.



However, she had the advice of her late grandmother, former first lady Barbara Bush. According to her granddaughter, Bush never really cared about having gray hair.

Bush Hager shared how her grandmother had joked that she’d gone gray at a young age because of the star’s father, former President George W. Bush. The co-host added:

"But also, she said that anybody that worried too much about their hair were kinda boring.”



The star noted how her grandmother’s advice was sound and she’s allowed her gray hairs to grow out without worrying too much about it.


However, on her show, she finally decided to sort out her roots with the help of a hairstylist. Chris Appleton helped Bush Hager touch up her roots remotely. Her husband, Henry Hager, 41, was on hand to help.



April 17, was the second anniversary of her grandmother’s death. The star took to her Instagram Story in the morning and grieved for Bush writing: “I can’t believe it.” The former first lady passed away after declining further medical care for her ailing health.



Days before her grandmother’s anniversary, Bush Hager opened up to her “Today” co-anchors about what she’d learned about parenting from her mother, Laura Bush. She revealed how Laura had never compared her to her twin sister, Barbara Pierce Bush.



The TV host also doesn’t compare her daughters, Poppy Louise, 4½, and Margaret “Mila” Laura, 7. She and her husband are also parents to son Henry “Hal,” 8-months-old.


The family celebrated the Easter holidays in self-isolation this year like most people across the world. Bush Hager took to Instagram where she shared some family photos and the lessons she’d learned on the special holiday.
