Dare of the week: Wear something on your head

Do you dress from head to toe?

Do you now, as a grown-up, wear a clip or a bow?

Would you wear a scarf upon your head?

Or would you rather endure the pain of childbirth instead?

This week’s dare is to wear something on your head,

from the time you get dressed, until you toddle off to bed.

How about a feather or a flower or a brooch?

(for some it’ll be easy so we won’t need to coach)

A Trilby, a beret – any sort of hat,

But a simple hair-tie won’t count – don’t try to get away with that!

So what do you think? Are you in on this dare?

It’s simple, just wear something ornate in your hair!

And give us proof!

We love to look.

    Woohoo! I look pretty spiffy in hats, so it’s off to find them!

    • Awesome, you’ll have some good tips to share then I’m sure! 

  • Al

    Yay!! This I can do.  Too pale for red lips, didn’t own any dresses, but I do love a hat and a hair accessory.  Bring it on.  

    • Right-o now’s your chance! x

  • Amy

    I will certainly give this a go!

  • Allison

    Would you believe that just last week I purchased a headscarf, and also a hat! Looks like they’ll get an outing this week.

    • Unreal – love to see them. Going to go & look at hats today. 

  • Me n my Monkeys!

    I’m in! This is going to be fun. 🙂

  • Pity I missed the red lipstick dare – that’s the only one I could manage so far! Major lack of dresses, hats, scarves, hairclips etc in this house… hmm… might come from being a minimalist non-girlie type!

    • DIY? Flowers? I don’t have much either…going to freestyle I think.

  • Al

    Day 1 – pink running cap.

    • That’s so cool – pink cap! 

    • Al

      Day 2 – felt trilby worn to Luna Park.  

      • Al

        Day 3 – pony tail bling.  A diamante hair band from Witchery about a hundred thousand years ago, gave it a bit of a service (new elastic, scrub with some Gumption) and it’s good as new.  Thanks for the inspiration, FIF.

    How’s my mirror face?

    • Your mirror face better than my ‘poker face’. Cool hat!!!! x

  • I am so not a hat person but oldest son always gives me flowers to put in my hair when we are out in the garden so that will be my ‘thing’ for this week 🙂

    • Oh that is so sweet! Rock it flower-child 😉

  • I’m good with pretty hair accessories… but I’m scared of hats! I like the idea of them – until  my curls stick out everywhere!!

    • SquiggleMum, I’m scared of this one too. Actually, I’ve been scared of ALL of the dares (that’s what makes them kinda fun though…) 😉

  • Day 1: Gym – headband. Sweaty.

  • Day 1: Beach cafe with the kids – beret. Dubious. 

  • Detachable Princess

    Freshly washed, naturally wind-blown (playing outside).

    • Cute colour! Is it a hat? 

      • Detachable Princess

        One of those twist-around dreadlock-holding headbands.

  • Day 1: raspberry beret! 

  • Day2: Hairclip that was given to me in a goodie bag at a conference. Always thought my hair too fine for it, but seems to work ok. Would never have tried it if not for the dare!

    My Alice band rocking out with studs and chains. Day 3 of “wear something on your head” dare. I know, I know I’m soooooo hardcore…! 😉 

  • Day 4: Day 4 of the dare to wear something on your head each day. All I could manage was a little antique-style mini comb. How is the dare going for you?

  • Today for the ‘wear something on your head’ dare I did a bit of DIY, and made this crazy ribbon number with a hair comb. Felt like I was 16 and at school again which was awesome for me…possibly creepy for others. What do you think?

  • Day 6 of ‘wear something on your head” dare, and I’ve got something extra special! Look what the uber foxy Pene MADE and sent to me! A FOX TIARA! 

  • Crown made for me by a very clever fox! Thankyou Pene Turner!

  • Smooth criminal. Afternoon effort for ‘wear something on your head’ dare…with soundtrack. http://youtu.be/b7cy-3f3sc8
