Hair Fair 2016 – Elikatira

Hair Fair 2016 - Elikatira

Hair Fair and Elikapeka Tiramisu are hand in hand in my mind. It was because of Six Kennedy, and Elika welcoming me to the group that I was able to join in and be part of Hair Fair in 2007, and this many years later. It was the kindness of Elika allowing Fiachra and I to use her own bandana as a template style for making the first ever Hair Fair Bandanas, that made bandana day possible. It was her openness to new ideas, after that first year I was part of,  that made it possible to expand and grow as an event, and even though she was not able to continue on the committee over the years, she is always someone so important to us.

These three styles are so fun, so her, and I love how in each hud for each style, she has a little cameo like picture of the style itself, so there is no mistaking which hud is for which style, that extra effort, that makes it all work so well. Pink and Pink, Pink and Blonde, and Pink and Red, all of it works, but honestly I just love red heads wearing pink, it is a thing that many think is not supposed to be ‘acceptable’ but it so is, and can be a breathtaking look depending on the combination.

I am wearing a lovely halter top by Mimikri with the matching frill skirt that is just summery and delightful, as are all Mimikri items, she has a way of just knowing what you need, especially us girly girls.

Hair Fair 2016 – Mina

Hair Fair 2016 - Mina 1 Hair Fair 2016 - Mina 2

Hair Fair 2016 - Mina 3

Hair Fair 2016 closes on Sunday evening, so you only have a few days left to get your hair on, and help Wigs for Kids. Mina was also a tenant at The Deck for many years. She was great to catch up with in the sand every few weeks, and watching her take on bigger challenges with creating hair full time, as she had a mix of things she created in the beginning. We love having her at Hair Fair and I look forward to seeing more and more awesome from her.

These styles for Hair Fair are out of the ballpark fabulous! The shine on the textures, the styles that just let you show off your clothing – behind the shoulders styles are always great to have in your arsenal. The bangs, the overall sexiness of them all, really makes them go back and get hairs, if you did not already get them.

The romper I am wearing is actually black, the fun editing software managed to make it look navy…but nope Valentina. E did it to me again with the only four colours in this romper, and if there were more, I would definitely want more, WHERE IS THE RED – cries. It is so cute, it tricked me, at first I thought it was a cami and french knickers, but it is an all in one romper that just looks like you are jumping around SL in your undies, and it is SL so that is just a thing we do.

Hair Fair – Bandana Booths and Bandana Day info

Bandana Day is fast approaching which also means the last day of Hair Fair, take another few spins around the event, you do not want to miss out on hair purchases that benefit wigs for kids…grab the gifts available and get your exclusive Bandanas :)

Hair Fair

Happy Bandana Day - Booth Sign

Bandanas for Bandana Day 31st July

Residents from all over SL come together each year under the same roof of a Bandana Booth, to provide these wonderful creations for us to purchase. Bandana day is traditionally the last day of Hair Fair, so this Sunday 31st July, you can remove your hair to show you care, and help Wigs for Kids. The bandanas are sold at 50L each, they are transfer so you can buy for friends, for alts etc. They have become collectibles over the years. They are only sold at this event, not sold at any other location, and once the event closes they are no longer available.

So many gorgeous styles, some just downright hilarious ones, and the notecards that come with many may – if you are anything like me – have you in tears.

Thank you so much to all that contributed this year with Bandanas, and thank you to all that purchase…

Hair Fair 2016 – Vanity Hair, Emo-tions & Analog Dog

Hair Fair 2016 - Vanity Hair Hair Fair 2016 - Emo-tions

Hair Fair 2016 - Analog Dog

This Hair Fair post is a Trio post. Because the three stores involved are not only great stores that have been part of Hair Fair for many years, but are also three of the co-owners of Hair-O-logy that is a monthly Hair Event in Second Life, that is about to hit its first birthday in a few months.

Vanity Hair, Analog Dog and Emo-tions Hair owners Tabata Jewell, Queue Marlow and Mirja Mills are all such wonderful ladies, who I have been honored to know for a long time now. Mirja was a tenant at The Deck for many years and there was never a more amazing tenant EVER! so organised, always on time, and just a joy to have around. Tabata I have also known for many years, but it was indirectly through Flickr that I met her, she was one of my first Pile Ups, if you do not know what that is, it is when someone takes pics and lets you edit them. I was so inexperienced at Pile Ups and editing anything but my own things, that I made her yellow, and she praised me for it…because that is just how lovely she is. Queue I first met as a Mermaid, her not me…I thought she was amazing, that her whole SL was spent as a mermaid that created beautiful hair, and it would explain why it swished and swayed so beautifully. I remember when Analog Dog was launched and we all came running, with the long ponytails that just bounced like we had never really seen do before. Always so fun to talk to, and who has definitely created some memorable styles over the years.

Now the three of them, as I said run an amazing event, and are so caring that they have it set in stone that during Hair Fair the event does not take place, and the month prior they do a Discounted price month, so that the Hair creators involved in Hair-O-logy have the time to focus on their Hair Fair releases…they are awesome!

We at Hair Fair love that they have combined forces to make such a great event, and spreading the hair love in SL is always important, it was and will always be my first love and addiction in Second Life. Anyone younger than 6 does not know the pain that was hair releases back in the olden days. We used to wait two or three months for releases, from only a dozen stores on the whole grid, I would seriously jones for new hair, climbing down sewers (this is true old gravy was once down a sewer) to find new hair to wear, we were deprived, it was painful, and no one ever released Hair before Hair Fair, so those 3 months prior were just spent making hair and it was safely guarded until release…and we all would wait, crying in pain for lack of prims and flexi.

I am seriously starting to feel the pain of those olden days, dives head first into my recent items tab ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh all better.

Stunning updo’s, and a hat hair, seriously these girls know how to party.

Hair Fair 2016 – Blues

Hair Fair 2016 - Blues 3

Hair Fair 2016 - Blues 2

Hair Fair 2016 - Blues 1

I went to Hair Fair and got the Blues…not the mopey blues but Blues hair. These styles are so fun, and the beanies are hilarious, there are so many options to choose from on the hud,  and they are just styled so cute that I felt like a fashionable garden gnome, or Sasy Smurf which would be way cool, and also blue.

Many beautiful styles, and a great amount of love put into them. I shared the casual but rockin on look with this tshirt dress by Kaithleens that is at Shiny Shabby this round. It also has hud options, and you end up with words on your back, I went with plain though and some very stylish tights by Izzie’s that ended up cropped out of my pic, but trust me those are must haves too.

Hair Fair 2016 – Argrace

Hair Fair 2016 - Argrace

Hair Fair and Hat Hair, my favourite combination, and Argrace every year does me so proud. Their first ever hair release was hat hair, and their first Hair Fair styles also included Hat Hair, it has become a much anticipated thing for me. This year not only do they have stunning styles with hats, but you can also pick up their gift hat just inside their booth. They also included a special gift hud in their hair packs to include exclusive Hair Fair colours for the hats, they spoil us so.

The short style is Unisex, and there is also another Male style, so that is two man friendly styles in the one booth. Did you all notice my larger than life Male Symbols over the booths that have Man Hair :). The sporty look of the styles just made it a perfect match to my lovely V Neck dress by Coco, now that she is making Slink size clothing as well I am in Coco Heaven.

Hair Fair 2016 – Wasabi Pills

Hair Fair 2016 - Wasabi Pills

Hair Fair and Wasabi Pills are so well matched up to each other. I love waiting on set up time, MissAllSunday and Rouge conferring back and forth on all things pill like. I love the displays that she uses, like a beautiful old hotel, an air of mystery, an escape if you will.

These styles at the fair are just lovely, and I am going through a trying to get over my distrust of purple as a colour, this past week, and so decided that seeing as Wasabi Pills is a pill I do not mind swallowing, that it will get me through… and yes I started singing ‘I wanna be sedated’ as I was typing all that.

I got this neat skin by Lara Hurley today,  that comes in three shades of pale, which made me snicker, and the eyebrow options are so adorable, and one is purple, so I thought why not!. I also have this very cute choker that is a gacha by Minimal that I have tinted purple to match. The style of it really adds to the shirt I am wearing from Vinyl, because it really adds to the look, of it just being a casual shirt, to being a little more.

Only a few more days left of Hair Fair 2016 do not miss out.
