Take part in the Home Hairstyle Challenge


Feeling like your hair is getting out of control? Looking for new ways to keep the family entertained? Then look no further than our #HomeHairstyleChallenge. Across the UK courageous individuals will be letting their children loose on their locks and asking friends to sponsor their new hairstyle to support Plan International UK’s Coronavirus: Children’s Emergency Appeal. Will you take on the challenge?

If you don’t have children, we would still like you to take part- this is a challenge for everyone! Ask your partners, parents or housemates if they will do the honours and get to work on your new ‘do.

What are you waiting for! Put your locks in your family’s hands and don’t forget to use #HomeHairstyleChallenge and tag us on social media too. You can tag us @plan_UK on Instagram, @planuk on Twitter and @PlanInternationalUK on Facebook. Good luck!



About the Home Hairstyle Challenge

The coronavirus crisis is having a devastating impact on family lives all over the world, and for children in the world’s most vulnerable communities, the challenge couldn’t be greater. Especially for those living in crowded conditions like refugee camps, where social distancing simply isn’t an option. By taking part you are supporting our Coronavirus: Children’s Emergency Appeal

Across the UK communities are coming together in these troubling and unprecedented times. We know this might be an extremely difficult time for many of you and greatly appreciate any support you can give as it will make a huge difference to children’s lives.


If you’re not able to fundraise you can still get involved in the #HomeHairstyleChallenge by donating the cost you would normally spend on a haircut, COLOUR OR STYLE TO OUR CORONAVIRUS: CHILDREN’S EMERGENCY APPEAL

How to take photos safely of your child

We would love to see photos of your children’s handiwork as you embrace your new look and share your ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos!

Before posting any photos on social media, please think carefully about what information you may be sharing about your child. For example, avoid mentioning their full name or details about where they live and go to school, and don’t post any photos of them without tops or bottoms on.  Remember, it’s difficult to control where and how a photo is seen once it’s online. 

You must only participate in this activity if you are confident that the participating child is able to use scissors safely to cut your hair. By participating in this activity, you acknowledge that you understand the risks involved in this activity and assume all responsibility and any risk which may arise in connection with the child cutting your hair. You must ensure that the child is always supervised by an adult while participating in this activity. Absent any negligence by Plan International UK, we will not be responsible for any personal injury or loss suffered by you or any other adult or child arising from participation in this fundraising activity.
