It Ain't Easy Being Cheesy
Wear 6 hats, changing hats here in 6 days
Does this mean wearing six hats across the network, but keeping one hat on for six days?
Does it mean wearing six hats in six days on a particular site?

When you click on the hat, you get the slightly longer and minimally less cryptic description:
wear six different hats in total (anywhere), and change your hat on six different UTC days using the hat rack on this site
So there are two parts to earning this hat:
Part 1 isn't site-specific, so if you've earned the hat on one site, you don't have to do anything about 1) anymore.
Part 2 is the site-specific requirement that decides where you earn this hat, so if you want to earn this hat on multiple sites, this is what you have to do on each of them.
The philosphical description of this hat is
wear lots of hats, but don't just go to your profile and wear six different hats over the course of two minutes to earn It Ain't Easy
However, since a hat is earned on a particular site there needs to be a site-specfic component to the requirement. That's what makes this hat's trigger a bit awkward to describe, especially when you need to make it short :(
