It might have been called Haircut Night in America, but the UAE got a starring role in a new TV show this weekend.

The one-night-only special, created by network CBS, was broadcast in US on Friday, May 29.

The show, which was filmed remotely using Zoom, featured stars and frontline workers giving their forlorn, lockdown locks a little TLC with the help of celebrity stylists.

Among the famous faces taking part was Lindsay Lohan, with the Mean Girls actress appearing from her apartment in Dubai.

In the show, hosted by actors and real-life couple Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn, the 33-year-old transformed her slicked-back hair into long, beachy waves.

Lohan was talked through the transformation by A-list colourist Tracey Cunningham, a Los Angeles salon owner who counts Jennifer Lopez, Emma Stone and Gwyneth Paltrow among her clients.

While the show may not have aired in the UAE, co-host Romijn gave a glimpse at Lohan's makeover on her Twitter account.

The actress achieved the look with curling tongs, as she was talked through the process by Cunningham.

After the look was completed, the Freaky Friday star was urged to step on to her balcony by O'Connell.

"People of Dubai, look at Lindsay’s new 'do! Get out there Lindsay, show them!" the actor said, in a clip shared on Cunningham's Instagram Stories.

"I was really starstruck when Lindsay Lohan came on," O'Connell added to Entertainment Tonight. "Now, listen, I'm not meeting anyone in person, this was all over Zoom. But Lindsay, that's what I call her, was in Dubai. So fancy! We saw her penthouse. It was beautiful."

The show also featured appearances from reality star Kelly Osbourne and Olympian Lindsey Vonn.

Haircut Night in America isn't the only show Lohan has recorded from the UAE in recent weeks either, with the actress due to appear on Celebrity Watch Party.

The programme follows a similar format to UK hit show Gogglebox, where participants watch TV shows from home while providing commentary.

Lohan and her sister, Aliana, were due to record segments for the series on Thursday and Friday, according to their mother, Dina.

The pair would be filmed remotely from separate apartment, Dina Lohan told Newsday, adding that they would watch episodes of reality shows Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Botched.

The Parent Trap actress moved to Dubai several years ago, and has remained in the city throughout the pandemic. She has often said the lack of paparazzi here is one of the major reasons she lives in the UAE.

“I live here, yep, I have been here for about six years," she told David Spade in an interview last month. "But I go to New York a lot to see my family … and I was in London before this."
