Hair Fair 2014

I finally made it to Hair Fair! I actually went just a day or two after it opened and only had to try to tp about 3 times before actually making it there. Maybe my memory is failing me, but it seems like in past years it took a lot longer. I also rezzed one of temp editable boxes to move around on because in the past it was the ONLY way you could move as walking got you nowhere and I really did not need it. I was able to walk just fine with out lag. It was a totally weird feeling for Hair Fair.

The two LeLutka hairs I have on are called Christine and Francine and I thought they were gorgeous! I can’t wait to wear the up do Francine to some formal event with it’s crystal encrusted flower hair accessory. I am sure it will set off any gown I have perfectly.
Christine’s fig leaf head band I think has a more versatile style and could be dressed up or dressed down with some jeans. I look forward to find all the different outfits I can pair it with.
As usual though I with Lelutka offered all her hairs in an unnatural color pack as well. I would have loved dearly loved these in a pale pink or purple.

Unnatural hair colors is not a problem for my Ohmai hairs! I am wearing Callia and Newreem and I love them! Yes they come in pretty pastel pinks and other colors, but they also each have a version of hair with adorable birds! That’s a running theme with all of Ohmai’s hair this fair. The hairs are lovely and they are going to make for some outfits in the near future.

Lamb had some great hairs at this year’s fair. A couple of them are convertible hair styles like the one I am wearing in the top picture. Eccentric is cute pretty much in half (a little over from half) and you can either wear the main side swoopy part and have the other half shaved for when you are feeling really bold, or add on the extra hair piece that will finish off the hair on the short side. I am wearing both hair pieces in this picture, but I will definitely take advantage of the different options at times. The other convertible hair offered was longer, but I thought the short hair was fun.
Halo is the other Lamb hair I got and it is very reminisent of a hair she made a few years ago, but I liked that! The older hair was in sculpts and while still pretty I simply do not wear any long styles that are not mesh any more. I am dying for some other older sculpted hairs to be given new life in mesh as well. (Like Mono, Poppyseed, Sweetpea, and Lovelier Girl just to name a few *cough* in case you know someone is reading.)

I also picked up the Cherry Bomb hair from Clawtooth. I thought it looked fun and flirty with its short half curls and waves. It seems like a great summer hair.

And the my last Hair Fair purchase was D522 from Tram. I love a well done long hair and have a hard time passing them up. I loved the two little side twisted braids. Tram is another store I really really wish did unnatural colors. There can never be enough pink hairs!

That’s it, my picks for Hair Fair 2014, but there are a ton of other great hairs there. I bought a lot less than I did last year or the year before because I had less money to spend and I took a good long look at what I had bought in the past and realized I hardly wore any of the hairs even though I really loved them. I just get caught up in the whole “OMG! It’s Hair Fair buy all the hairs!” and buy a bunch and then forget I got them. This year I tried to only get ones I could see my wearing right away or often and if down the road there are others that I like and still want I can just go to the main stores and get them after the hair. No need to over load right now.

Feeling Vargas

Pin-up
I meant to blog this outfit for 4th of July, but RL work kind of got crazy and sucked away all my free time. But that’s okay, had I done the post then I would not have had time to wipe out this very Vargas-esque pose.
My adorable sailor outfit is from The Secret Store. It came in all kind of colors including pastels and while I was very tempted to get pink, the red blue just felt right to me. Ingenue has the perfect shoes to pair with the outfit complete with little anchor buttons on the back strap. The whole outfit just screamed classic pin-up to me so where better to go for pose inspiration than the work of Alberto Vargas.

Fall Silk


There are a lot of great things at the Season Story, this top from Tram is one I could not live with out. I loved how flowy and silky it looked. I am wearing it with the add on collar which adds a great automatic layer effect. There are also lots of options of the add on collar so many uses for the top.
I paired it with some simple trousers and a high boot for more of a fall look.
My pose is from Ploom and I will be honest I have never bought a pose from there before. I needed something new and knew they had poses because I always see them when the note card goes out for new hairs. I decided to see what they had to offer and I was very pleasantly surprised. I a kinda on the broke side at the moment and was just looking for a single pose (as that was all I could afford), but I will definitely be going back to Ploom for more poses. A really nice bonus for buying poses in packs from Ploom is they offer a curvy version of each pose in the pack. I think this is awesome because some times my hips seem a bit wider than the average for poses. Also curvy sized poses are great with some poofy clothes. If you just need single poses they do also offer the curvy ones for single purchase too.

Hair Fair 2013

It’s that time of year again… HAIR FAIR!!! *runs around with crazy flailing arms* Out of all the fair type events, like skin fair, pose fair, etc…, Hair Fair is my most favorite. One can never have too much hair, right? It’s so easy in SL to change your hair from short to long and back again. Dye it crazy colors or bring it back to a natural color. I have to have lots of variety in my hairs to fit every mood and whim I may have.

With so many great hair creators these days I find it really hard to limit myself. I went way overboard last year buying nearly 40 hairs! Looking back at my old post I realized that so many of them I forgot I had and never wore again. So when it came to hair fair this time I gave myself a stern talking to about really thinking over what hairs I would buy. I still went a little overboard, but really who could blame me with all the awesome hair out there this year?! The total number of hairs I got this is is just under half of what I got last year so i will count that as goal accomplished in not going totally overboard.
You might want to sit back, this is going to be kind of a long post.


Last year Laviere was a new to me hair store, but over the last year they have been working their way to being one of my favorite stores. When I finally got into the fair, which surprisingly didn’t take that long, just a few minutes of constant tp attempts, Laviere was one of the first stores I hit up. As I said before I was really trying to limit myself on what to buy and these two hairs were the ones I felt I could not live with out. It was more difficult to choose which color pack to buy them in actually. Lately I have only been getting fades, I just love that look and Laviere has a great pack with fades, but their textures are so beautifully made that even in the solid colors there is a nice variation to keep the hair from looking flat. I ended up just getting the pastel color pack because the colors are really pretty an it’s the perfect pink!
I simply loved this little curly hair from Tram! I only wish Tram did more non natural colors, but there was this dark salmon-y color that can pass ff as pink so it worked out.


Lamb has some really cute hairs out this year. One of my absolute favorites is True Faith. There is also a similar hair called Blue Monday out and it’s basically the same except it has rolled under and very retro looking bangs. I loved it too and I wear retro styled things a lot, but I had to look long and hard at both hairs and choose which I thought I would get more use out of. Remember trying to stick to a goal of not going too crazy here. As much as I loved the rolled under bangs the more swept to the side fringe won out.
The other hair I got from Lamb is Thieves Like Us. I love that the braids are not super thick. So many braid hairs in SL seem so huge and thick to me. Now I have a lot of hair in RL and the curls ad a lot of volume and thickness to it, but when I braid my hair it is smaller and not all huge like braids tend to be in SL.
Fashionable Dead has some really cute hairs out this year, but by the time I got there I was running low on funds and could only get one. It was hard to choose as this year all (fd) hairs come packaged with two versions… TWO! In the end I got Mercury. I really liked the little floral knotted headband and think I’ll wear it more than the others.


There are a lot of hairs this year with really cute accessories. Ohmai is one of the shops with some of those hairs. I got Athena and Kun. As soon as I put Kun on it reminded me of Melora from Rasputina and could already picture some photo ops and outfits to wear it with.
Some lovely hairs from Clawtooth this yeah, I couldn’t live with out Tootsie. The best thing I think is he’s made a color pack with some of the colors he had int he last arcade round. This pink is my favorite by far.


ISON hair is new to me. Maybe it’s it is new in general, I donno I forget to check back at stores often to see what new things they are up to, but I just remember the clothes. I really liked these two hair styles and they have some nice colors and fades. When you buy the hair you get it with basic colors, and then you have the option to buy other packs on huds. Buying the hair plus the color pack was about 300L, which is nice because for the price of most hairs you get essential natural colors, plus another pack of colors of your choosing. It works out great for me because if I like a hair a lot I will buy it in a basic brown or blonde pack PLUS what ever pack gives me a nice pink or dip dye colors and i was able to do just that for only the price of basically one hair.
LeLutka is another shop this year with pretty accessories for their hair. And I am so happy now that more and more LeLutka hair is being offered in non natural colors!


I was pleasantly surprised by Ploom this year. They usually always have nice hair, just not always in my style. There were two that I just had to have this year. Cassie is so cute with the looped pigtails I could not resist and I really like Ploom’s dip dye pack called Candy.
The other hair I got is Raichu, it’s kinda cute and sassy ponytails done in bunches. There are some really nice details in this hair. Like up front where the hair is in the first band how it is a little poofy, but you can see where the rubber band weighs it down a bit. And the way the swoopy bangs separate from that top poofy part just look brilliant to me. I don’t want to be rude or anything like that, but I really feel like I can see some growth in technique with these latest hairs from Ploom at the fair.
And last, but not least the hairs I picked up at Eaters Coma. This was another shop that made it hard to limit myself. Hair 27 is kinda similar in style to one I got at ISON, but I justified the purchase by reasoning I’d wear the ISON on more in the pinks and as Eaters Coma doesn’t offer funky colors then I would wear it in natural brown. See, perfect reason to get two similar styles!

So those were my picks from this year’s fair. If you haven’t been yet you really should. It didn’t take long to actually get there at all and I made 3 trips and was amazed each time how quickly I got in. Previous years it would literally take me days to get a TP to actually go, but not this year. Also this year’s build is so awesome and cute! If you are having a hard time getting around I suggest finding one of the “bus” dispensers. They really are a life saver for getting around the fair.
