Hair Fair 2017 – Most Valuable Players

Hair Fair

Labels_Banners

As Hair Fair 2017 draws to a close this Sunday, I did not want to leave this until after the event was over, but let you all in on the people that help make this event happen. There were a few new faces to making this year’s Hair Fair fantastic and they were instrumental in its success, and we owe them a huge thank you from everyone involved in Hair Fair 2017.

Anya OhMai :

Over the years Anya has participated in Hair Fair when she was able, and has always had such a huge impact on the event, with her creativity and imagination. So this year when we had the idea to take Bandanas in a new direction, giving people the opportunity to bandana, but in a way they felt more comfortable…Anya sprang to mind. We knew she was busy, and had put feelers out in another direction, but…

Hair Fair 2017 – Vanity Hair

HF17 - Vanity Hair

It is like 2009 up in here, three posts in one day…oh wait it must be Hair Fair time :D. These styles are by the wonderful Vanity Hair, and if you are not aware Vanity Hair is one of the founders of the monthly event HairOlogy. Every year leading up to and during Hair Fair, they show the event such respect as to shut their doors and give hair creators the time off to focus on preparing for this annual event. we think that is so awesome of them, and it shows how strong a community Hair creators often are.

These styles are so laid back and fun, that I ended up zoning out on the water, and really chilling for a bit. A much needed rest. The styles vary from fun and a bit zany, to playful and charming with the ability to glam up if required, these are things you need from hair and Vanity Hair achieves that. I am wearing my LeLutka head hairbases with the styles, while there are also ones included, however I was also using the tattoo layer for this great wet look for face and body that Izzie’s recently released at Summerfest.

I decided to merge some pieces at this round of C88, and create my own tankini look, by using the amazing bikini bottoms by Blueberry, with the knotted tank by Spirit. Using their texture change huds to bring them together into the same colour range, black and gold and a unique take on the pieces, giving you more bang for your buck. I was able to do the same with the Love bracelets by Noir, also a C88 item and the whole ensemble ended up black and gold love.

Hair Fair 2017 – Bliensen + MaiTai

HF17 - Bliensen + Maitai

One of those things that I know how to spell without even thinking about it because of Second Life, Bliensen + MaiTai, the other thanks to Whimsy is Apothecary. It is actually a very long list, of things that Second Life brings into your real life, with learning software, spelling things you never knew you would use so often, and the many other hundreds of SL quirks that just rule our lives now.

So Bliensen + MaiTai always have such imaginative hairstyles at Hair Fair, and this year they interspersed some roleplay looks with some of their known for vintage styles. I was overjoyed that one of the dresses I just recently unpacked from sYs was the perfect look, and colours for these styles. To get that coordinating lipstick, I actually tinted one of the Ohemo lipsticks from this current Powder Pack, with the tinting option in the LeLutka head HUD. Also a LeLutka made for item, the Lashes I am wearing are from Stellar, and there are a few different styles to choose from, giving you fuller fluffier lashes, which was perfect for this look.

HF17 - sYs

sYs always bring it when it comes to their Hair Fair styles, in fact they bring it with every event I ever see them do. They have their own style by definition, and it has such a fantastic mix of Futuristic and Asian influences, with an abundance of that French eye for detail.

Wearing sYs items always gives me a feeling of rawr, take on the world, save the planet, or just take charge in general kind of feeling, you know when you cannot make time for the whole planet…we all have those days right. All three styles are fun and alluring, and the dress shirt which is also by them is a must have for me, it is incredibly easy to wear and look fabulous, and teamed up with these killer platforms that came in the Bound box, this month’s subscription, I am making plans and taking names, and getting it all done.

Only a few days left of Hair Fair 2017, so make sure you log in all your alts and get everyone restyled and fabulous, and help Wigs for Kids in the process.

Hair Fair 2017 – Mina

HF17 - Mina

Shirt Dresses are the perfect way to dress casually or dressy in the kind of weather everyone is having up there at the top of the world right now. They are beautiful, and Baiastice did a fantastic job with their release at C88 this round.

The carefree style was perfect to accompany any of the three beautiful styles by Mina at this years Hair Fair. She has created perfect carefree styles, that have a few features in two of the styles, giving you extra options and better fit. A recent change of textures makes her brunette colours so rich and well looked after. Mina also has a beautiful gift style in her booth at the fair, you can see HERE in the coverage of the gifts at Hair Fair.

Ready to take it on the road with this fun car by Nomad, that does have its own poses included, but I went with the ones included in a bento Ao I picked up at SLC recently.

Hair Fair 2017 – Amacci ( so much to read)

HF17 - Amacci

IMPORTANT LESSON LEARNED!

This Hair Fair has been a real eye opener, as in if you don’t keep them open, you will miss a lot of very important information and features. Because of Hair Fair, I tend to spend the leading up months in a bit of an ‘under a rock’ mode. While I was aware these features were a thing, I did not see the different ways they were being included in people’s products.

This is not specific to the hair featured, this is just a lesson I learned last night on another full sim shop. When trying a demo, I tend to not bother with the colour huds, I know what I like, am often familiar with the stores colours, and just look at the hair and the sizes the hair may come in. This almost bit me in the bottom last night, in a way that would have lost me some very exciting hair, and also cost the creator some lindens, because I was about to not purchase, all pouty and sad face.

I had tried on a style, loved it, was all excited about it leading up to the shopping outing, and tried the one demo option and cried. It did not fit me in the chest. Now I am used to the stores that do + options or (_)(_) options or just Breasts and every other type of naming. So seeing only one, lead me to believe there was only one. However, when I was still pouting on my Hair Fair Bus with Ashia and Vivian, I was trying to edit the bus to move it and caught my hair, when I did it showed there was more to the hair than visible.

Now again, I know that transition hair is very popular now, it has however been a thing since before I was born in SL as I remember it back in 06…but comes and goes, and it is full steam ahead mode now, as mesh makes it more desirable . However I had only seen styling HUDs included with the packs, so that if I saw one of those, I knew the hair did more, it had more options. What I didn’t know, was that some stores are doing that part in their COLOUR huds. So again, not bothering with needing to see the colours, I did not put the hud on and see the other features.

I ransacked the demo folder again, looked for a style hud, not to be seen, threw on a colour hud just in case, and as an option, was not only different looks as in forward of shoulders, behind shoulders etc, but different breast options for the same features. The sky literally opened and beams of light cascaded upon me FATPACKING IT IS! Not even joking, had I not misclicked that store would be down 1600L and I would have been grumpy all the way …. to the next booth :P

Now that being said, the styles being featured today, also have the transition options in their colour HUD, but by the time I was trying that hair on I was a smarter hair enthusiast, and prepared for this to be a thing. It however fit me, so that would have not been a need, but it was a lovely surprise to find that there were so many bangs options for the ponytails style.

So the moral of this story, as long as it is….is GO BACK TO HAIR FAIR and anything you did not think fit you properly when you demod, may be worth revisiting and trying again, because there may be hidden options for that exact thing.

_________________________________________________________________________________

Now onto the goodies. The styles featured are from Amacci, as the title of the post suggests, and whatever Carina has been doing of late, she needs to keep on doing, because everything is just beautiful. The options, the textures, the styles, all just work in the perfect combination of needs. Her booth is lovely, the ads are so pretty, it was just a really exciting feeling entering her space.

Another store that blows my mind everytime they release anything is Mutresse, now I have mentioned in the past the incredible amount of texture change options in every piece of her work, but this time it is simply taking the time to utilise the way you see her items in a folder. We all know that folders unpack in a mess, and one extra space behind a name can throw one item to a completely different place in the folder than the rest. Now with sizes and bodies to cater to, tops and bottoms and all that jazz, it can be chaos.

I noticed in the last Slink update that they had also done a bit of work on making sure that all notecards sat at the top of their folders, by using * at the front of each title, putting it at the top. I myself use symbols in my inventory to put things where I need them… exclamation marks put things at the top and ~ tilde symbol puts things at the bottom, which is helpful for folders inside other folders.

But what Mutresse has done is epic, and I hope many take notice…Mutresse Folder Organisation

Genius!

Not only do they have great style, but they have a complete understanding of how customers need to see at a glance what they themselves need. Now need is important too, because you all need this tunic and bikini set just released at Collabor88. The tunic is beautiful lace, and fits perfectly over the bikini, but it also fit over these capri pants by Maddict, and as often as I can, I try and find combinations you can mix, as it does play a big part in deciding what to invest your lindens in.

The bikini top and bottoms have separate ties attachments, and everything has texture change options, not only in lace similar to the tunic, but the top and bottoms also as shown come in solids versions. I personally would love to see a solid version of the tunic, but that is just a wish not a need.

I am wearing the outfit with some also by Mutresse shoes, that were actually last months C88 item, they also have many colour combos you can go with, but when I wear them in all black, they remind me of Irish Dancing shoes, and that is just too cute.

I changed skin for the first time in a week, and went with the Paris skin by YS&YS, I really like the detail on this skin, and I opted for some recent Powder Pack make up by Alaska Metropolitan, who has an incredible talent for make up. Using the tinting option on the LeLutka head HUD, I was able to make the eyeshadow a touch closer in colour to the beautiful lipstick. It tinted so well actually I will get colours for days out of it. The tinting option on your head HUD is the paintdrop icon under the posestand option.

Lastly, and if you are still reading, I applaud you, the necklace by Maxi Gossamer is also at this round of C88, and it fits so well with a little rotating and moving, no resizing needed for me. Changed the textures to ones in keeping with my theme and voila, fabulous.

Hair Fair 2017 – Tableau Vivant

HF17 - Tableau Vivant

She could be a farmer in those clothes! Mel often laughs at my inability to recognise quotes from movies…even though I watch hundreds a year, I don’t tend to focus in on things that become referenced often. I mean I know important ones, like ‘ I carried a watermelon’ which of course is followed with ‘No one puts baby in the corner’ well actually there are so many from that one movie. I did not know ‘ We are going to need a bigger boat’ until recently, but now I see it everywhere. But I did put together this look and have me a Clueless moment.

This hair by Tableau Vivant at Hair Fair 2017 is a delight, it actually comes default with a white bandana, and I loved the purity of that, but then I went all out, and by all out I mean, I got me some wellies full perm and textured them to match my ensemble,  that is some Bloggers dedication right there.

The three styles are all marvelous, from short to long and all three give off a very casual and relaxed vibe. The shirt I am wearing is an in store release by Tee*fy, that has colour hud options and some cute print styles, one made me laugh for a few more minutes than it should, I will let you find that for yourself.

The shorts are by Narcisse, and are in the store, they work well with the top shown the other day. High Waisted with a really nice sharp crease front and back that really adds a much needed finish to the look. I had been wanting to show my gardening skills for a while now, my Mum would be so proud of my Rhubarb crop – proud or eat it all, one or the other.
