I've done some pretty crazy dares in my time. There was the naked run around the block, the prank phone call to the mayor (who did not appreciate my suggestion for "Free Cupcake Friday," whatever), but this one takes the cake.
What was the dare? To wear a completely different hairstyle, every day, for 30 days. Sounds easy? It so wasn't (even with these looks for inspiration). In fact, I couldn't even man up, I had to pass it along to this girl, who took the challenge and ran with it. Check out some of the highlights from her diary below, or see the full story here.Day One: The norm
Because it was my first day, I decided to chronicle what my hair would look like at any given time. To get my usual style I add Frederic Fekkai Luscious Curls Cream, $20 to my damp hair (it's naturally a little bit wavy already) and blow dry it from root to tip using just my fingers and then I brush my bangs to the side. (Wondering if you'd look good with bangs? Find out here.)
Then, I curl selected sections, running my hands through so they're not too "Curly Sue," and I top it off with a spray like my trusty Redken Quickdry Instant Finishing Spray, $14, and I'm out the door.
Another day bang-free! Wow, I'm getting brave. For this one, I applied a curling cream to my damp hair, and blow dried it using just my finger tips. Then, I chose a few select sections to curl with a small-barrel curling iron (not spending too much time with it, knowing it would be in a ponytail anyway). Then I teased hair with a comb at the top of my head, and then pulled my bangs back into a slight poof (not a dramatic Snooky poof though, gasp). Next, I pulled my hair back into a low side pony near the nape of my neck, and secured with an elastic. Finally, I took a small, half-inch section of hair under the pony, and wrapped it around the elastic, and secured with a few pins, for a more organic look. (What? Doesn't your hair naturally form into a ponytail?)
To bop around town today -- thank goodness the weather cleared -- I decided to wear one of those comfy onesie rompers (of course with tights underneath), and I chose a beanie to complete the ensemble. Well, I didn't wash my hair from the goddess day (don't judge!), so I just straightened it out a bit with my ceramic straightener, and instead of pushing my bangs to the front per usual, I whisked them back into the cap. And I do have to say, I've got a bit of a Che Guevara look going on here.
