There is a MAJOR glitch with this quest!! You can get to the last set of goals to get the last (of three) hairstyles and the hairstyles aren't shown or rewarded for the last set of goals!!

The advice going around Facebook is to save your game to the cloud before starting so that if you get to the last set of goals (day 5 and 6) and don't get the hairstyles you reset your game and try again. Maybe saving on Day 4 will work. I'm not sure because I haven't started the quest yet.

The only other way to fix it is to use a time extension you get from VIP levels. Do it on Day 5 and it will add an extra 24 hours to your timer and the 3rd hairstyles will show up at the bottom of the task thing and you will be able to unlock them when you complete the quest.

We can also post like crazy to the Official Sims FreePlay facebook page but they are for sure on holiday right now and won't be much of a help. Although, this is pretty serious.

2 Hairstyle & 1 Hat.

Opps...I forgot to put on the hat for the Male.
Love the Topknot & wavy hair for the female. Looks very elegant. The wavy hairstyle remains me of the early movie stars of the 50's??
I am not sure about the female hat style. The hat itself is so-so but the hair underneath!!! Looks like a bad hair day & the hat is handy on cover it.

Initially I have problem with the last task of 4 Sims celebrating with the Stereo in the Park. Oh..oh...I thought that was what Mockingbird's warning about the problem. Initially I could not get the 2nd sim to join in the celebration. After a few tries, I finally found out that only adults & seniors can partake the celebration. My teenager could not. Anyway I got the above hair & hat styles. Are there more? I am using an android tablet.

When does this quest begin? I don't have it yet, so I'm guessing you all are in earlier time zones than me.
I love both the new hairs and hat for girls, and the second hair for guys.

Thanks! Just started the quest, so it probably starts at midnight if anyone else is wondering. (It's 1am here.)

I wouldn't worry too much about this happening. Some of the people it's been happening to on Facebook have admitted to time travelling. :? Maybe that's not the only way for this to happen but...it looks like that is the common link. Just a big reminder of why changing the date on your device is not a good idea!
