    Lightbulb The Advent Challenge/12 Days of Christmas

    I don't know if this has been done before, but this year I've been thinking I'm going to set myself an Advent Challenge. I'm getting in a bit of a LWB rut and I think I need to push myself to get a bit more adventurous with my styling.

    So, for the days of Advent leading up to Christmas, I'm going to try to wear my hair in a different way each day without repeating a style, and I'm going to try get a photo or video of each day so that I can put a final video & blog together of my advent calendar of long hair styles.

    I'm thinking I'll keep the rules pretty loose - how you do it is up to you (so different accessories/temporary colours etc count), and if you don't think you can do the whole of Advent, you might just want to join for the 12 days of Christmas.

    For me, I'm going to start on the 1st Sunday of Advent which is the 28th November and go until the 25th December. The 1st of December would also be a good starting date to follow advent calendars, or you might pick the 12 days before or after Christmas.

    Anyone like to join me?

    Such a great idea! I'll try to think of something fun/realistic for myself!

    That's a fun idea. I"m not sure if I'll join in but I might try to do 12 different for all of December instead of 12 days in a row.

    I’m not sure what days I’ll do but this is such a good idea! I haven’t done any bun experimentation for months

    I love challenges! I don't think it's practical for me to join in this time, but I will be following along and cheering you on!

    Sounds like a great variation, Shorty89 - I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Go with what works for you - experimentation should be fun!

    It’s a busy time of year, so I know it won’t work for everyone. But we’ll be very happy for all support and suggestions that you can offer. I know I’m going to need all the help I can get!

    I will join in! I will attempt the 28th of Nov-Christmas. We shall see if I can get creative. With my current length my options are slim, but I may be able to play with accessories to help with the differing styles 🤔

    I’m in - 12 styles between now and the solstice should be equal parts manageable and challenging.

    Always helps to have reasons to try new things!
