You're not going to cause a fire, but it's shady to do that.

Common microwave takes 1000w, so that is 8 amps. I doubt the hair dryer takes more than 8 as well, so if you installed 12 wire and have a 20 amp breaker, you will be fine.

If you put 14 or 16 wire on a 20 amp breaker, you better have good house insurance.
