Like many Americans, Taylor Swift hasn't stepped inside of a hair salon since the COVID-19 pandemic began and has had to take matters into her own hands.

Speaking with Apple Music's Zane Lowe, the "Willow" singer revealed she's been cutting her own hair because she doesn't want to risk her stylists' health or safety.

"I haven’t had a haircut by anyone except for myself since lockdown started," the 31-year-old singer said. "I can’t ask my hair and makeup people and my stylist to quarantine for two weeks away from their families. I’m not going to ask them to do that, and ask them to fly and expose themselves to the virus."

Swift said that mindset is why she decided against having a team of professionals by her side when making the covers for hew new albums -- "Folklore" and "Evermore" -- and, instead, used a DIY approach.

"I asked my friends if I could use their field and their woods and I used a photographer who works alone," the "Cardigan" singer detailed. "She doesn’t have assistants. She shoots on film."

Shooting the cover for "Folklore" and "Evermore" with a single photographer turned out to be an unforgettable experience, as Swift recalled, "We were carrying bags of film out in fields. And I’d be touching up my lipstick and then I’d run out into a field and she’d take pictures. It was really fun.”

The "Cats" star also revealed more about her albums, saying they aren't just about "the forest and the woods and stuff."

"One thing I wanted to do with 'Folklore' is I wanted it to represent spring and summer," Swift said. "And when I made 'Evermore,' I knew that I wanted to fill in the rest of the seasons of the year and have it reflect fall and winter."
