The 7 Day Hair Dare

7 Day Hair Dare

By Andrea Michelle

Do you have a basic, quick hairstyle that you fall back on day-in, day-out simply because it’s convenient?

If you answered “yes”, you’re not alone.

Of 150 women we surveyed, a whopping 77% said they had a ‘uniform’ of sorts they wore regularly – and that uniform was most often topped off with a pony-tail.

Sound familiar?

But, making more of your locks doesn’t have to be hard, time-consuming, or a hassle. So to encourage more of us to break out of a hair style comfort zone, we’re continuing our series of Style Dares by laying down a hair challenge:


Wear your hair in a different style

every day for 7 days in a row


5 reasons to try the hair dare:

1. It’ll be a great way to bust out of a hair-style rut.

2. You’ll probably discover a bunch of new, easy hair-do’s to add to your daily repertoire.

3. You won’t have to buy anything new to participate.

4. We’ve got loads of tips, ideas and inspiration to get you going.

5. We’ll call you “chicken” if you don’t join in. “Burk, Burk, Burk!


The rules:

  • Join in whenever you like, but to complete the Dare you need to do it for 7 days straight. I’m starting this Monday 14th of April.
  • Each hairstyle must be distinctly different from another.
  • Choose any hairstyle you like, but challenge yourself to try styles you’ve not done before.


Tips & ideas:

    This sounds great to me. I have straight, very fine hair that goes limp in humid weather and does not hold a curl. My current cut is a bob, very short at the back with sides gradually lengthening to just below my chin. Any suggestions will be gladly tried!
