LisaRaye Defends Celebrities Turning to Glam Squads While in Quarantine

LisaRaye McCoy

*LisaRaye McCoy sees no problem with celebrities defying social distancing guidelines by having their hair and make-up teams make house calls during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“I do not think it’s an unfair advantage for celebrities to get their hair [and] nails done at home, because I feel like we are all at different levels,” the actress told Page Six Style. “So what — if you can’t drink champagne, I can’t drink champagne? If I can afford it, I can do anything I want.”

LisaRaye added,  “The grocery stores are more dangerous to go to than somebody’s home, so to each their own.”

That said, McCoy has been doing her own hair and nails while sheltering-in-place, and she’s also showing her feet some love with a simple and affordable at-home treatment. 

“I put Vaseline and lotion on my feet, [then] Saran Wrap … and I walk around with that all day and overnight so my heels won’t get hard and crusty,” she explained.

The Chicago native also uses cucumber slices on her eyes,  aloe vera for her complexion and when it comes to her hair? 

“I have not used a lace front wig yet,” McCoy said. “I’m letting my edges show ’cause I got them and I want to keep them. That glue and the hairspray scares me. I don’t know how to do it.”
