‘Bachelor’ alum Amanda Stanton defends driving to another state to get her hair done – Severskiy (News)

Amanda Stanton isn’t apologizing for crossing state lines during the coronavirus crisis for the sake of her hair.

The “Bachelor” alum, 30, revealed on Monday that she drove from LA, where salons remain closed, to Arizona to get her tresses touched up.

“Drove very very far to get my hair done & may have peed on the side of a dirt road because I’m scared to use public restrooms,” Stanton captioned a since-expired photo shared to her Instagram Stories. She later shared that the schlep “was worth it,” and that she felt “like a new person.”

The “Bachelor in Paradise” star also shared shots of her new and improved ‘do on her feed, captioned, “never been so early to a hair appointment in my life.”

Many fans weren’t pleased about Stanton’s choice to ignore LA’s shelter-in-place orders, and their criticism prompted the social media star to defend her actions in another post on her Stories Tuesday.

“I’ve been very strict with staying home since 3/14. I haven’t even gone to the grocery store,” Stanton wrote. “I hadn’t had my hair done since January and my hairstylist who I’ve been doing to for years JUST opened her salon. I thought I’d rather when she JUST opened than later when more people had been there.”

She added that she and her 8-year-old daughter Kinsley, who joined her for the trek, both tested negative for COVID-19 before departing, and that the pair are “going to quarantine again” before seeing family and friends.

“Some might think this is going to great lengths to get my hair done but honestly, I have nothing else to do and isolating for a couple of weeks when I get home was something I was willing to do. To each their own,” Stanton continued. “I’m confident that I’ve been making responsible choices during this time and am proud of myself!”

As for why she chose to speak up about the outing? “I really don’t think I have anything to hide,” she concluded. “I feel really good about doing my part during this pandemic.”
