With salons closed during the novel coronavirus pandemic, Savannah Guthrie took matters into her hands and dyed her hair at home to the delight of her fans.


Seeing as she couldn't get her hair done by her hairstylist, "Today" host, Savannah Guthrie decided that she needed to dye her hair by herself.

Luckily for her, she was able to reach out to hair colorist, Rita Hazan, on FaceTime for some help during the process. Soon after she was done with the process, the TV personality shared the outcome with her Instagram followers with the caption:

"Let's do this. Coloring hair at home is easy with Charley on my arm and @ritahazan giving expert advice on FaceTime!!!"


Savannah's post, which came with four photos that showed off the process, has garnered almost 40,000 likes and hundreds of comments including one from "Today" contributor, Jill Martin. As noted to People, Jill wrote:

"Ha! Just got my color today….hope i got the right color..."


One fan even wished Savannah good luck as she said that she was also planning to color her own hair too while a third person exclaimed "way to go!" in the comment section.

Savannah's post comes a little over a week after her "Today" counterpart, Jenna Bush Hager, publicly changed the color of her hair.


As at the time of the occurrence, People reported that the "Today with Hoda & Jenna" co-anchor reached out to celebrity hairstylist, Chris Appleton, for a crash course in temporary root cover-up.

With the help of her husband, Harry Hager, who was by her side, Jenna dutifully followed the instructions of Chris. Jenna alluded to her husband's presence when she told her Twitter followers:

"I have my hair assistant, otherwise known as my husband here to hold my hair back tight!"


As she brushed the powder from her blonde highlight up to the root, Jenna explained that getting a temporary powder root cover-up came in handy if one had a vital Zoom meeting, a family birthday.

She jokingly added that one should also consider getting their hair dyed if they simply wanted "to make your husband feel uncomfortable on television."

Her points were backed up by Chris, who stated that the procedure was safe for everybody who wanted to try it out, including beginners.
