Hair Fair – Iren

Hair Fair Banner 2011

Hair is how I first discovered Iren as a brand years ago, I vividly remember dragging Jussy over there and us buying pretty much everything. Back then, the majority of the hair was hat hair so it was a no brainer!

Fast forward 2 years and Irischka has come on in leaps and bounds, expanding her brand to include skins. Her hair skills have improved tenfold, and she’s another crazy talented SL’r who gets better with each release.

Her releases for this year’s fair are a mixed bag of yum, all fitting with our Summer theme so beautifully.

Hat hair, flowers, cute bunches, hippy hair…it’s all here. The textures this year are yummy too, especially the blonde. Blonde for me is the tester of a good hair. Theres no hiding mistakes with blonde as it’s such an unforgiving colour, get that right and you’ve scored in my book.

Time is pressing so I’d better wrap it up here. Don’t forget to stop by Iren‘s booth at the fair, you’ll be happy you did!

Hair Fair – Mina’s Frou Frou!

Hair Fair Banner 2011

Yesterday, I was reminiscing about stores that launched at last year’s fair. Another one of those stores was Frou Frou. Ms Rootcreeper has been quiet through the year, but has definitely come back with a bang with her releases for the fair.

3 beautiful styles, including a hat hair…weee!! The other 2 styles are gorgeous editorial hair, perfect for photography lovers and divas :P Prim torturing is soo not my forte, and I’m so in awe when I see hair like this thinking how the hell do they do it! Snatch these up while you can, just in case she goes back into hiding for a year :P

Next up is Mina Hair. Mina’s was the first booth I landed in while everyone was setting up, and I thought we had messed up the order and I was in a different booth! She has so leveled up and then some this year, her releases are absolutely incredible.

You have a choice of how to wear the style above, with the bangs being an optional attachment. They are so retro gorgeous I couldnt say no to them!

hf post mina 2

The textures are very realistic and photograph beautifully, and for once I didnt have to mod anything to fit my odd shaped little head!

This last style is a boy’s ‘do, but as you can see, it looks just as awesome on us ladies. Mina Hair is definitely one of my top picks for the fair, I hope you love them just as much a me.

Hair Fair – Vanity

Hair Fair Banner 2011

I’ve loved Vanity hair for such a long time it seems. With every release Tabata just gets better and better and her store is the go to store for avant garde, editorial hair.

This year’s fair releases are really incredible, and such an ecclectic mix theres sure to be something here for everyone.

You will also find included matching hairbases with your purchases, which is seriously awesome. Even if a store has them available to buy seperately it’s a huge plus in my book, as most are no mod so matching a base from store A to a hair from store B could prove to be a nightmare.

Arent the pearls just spectacular! Don’t forget, a portion of all sales goes to Wigs For Kids, so you dont have the tough job of picking and choosing which style to buy…yay!

Hair Fair – The Strand & Slink

Hair Fair Banner 2011

Last Year’s Hair Fair produced some amazing new stores. One such store was The Strand. Although Cecilia has been pretty quiet this year, it was so worth the wait for new hair!

hf post the strand

I love hat hair of all kinds, casual, dressy or outrageous. Last Stand, shown above is so beautiful and definitely my favorite of the three styles. It ticks all my boxes and utilises my all time favorite of hats, the mini top.

hf post the strand 2

Buttons is the perfect casual style for cooler nights. Throw on a pair of jeans and an oversized sweater towards the end of a beach party when the sun goes down and the fire comes out. Can you tell I’m homesick!

hf post the strand 3

Polo is more garden party attire. The ribboned ponytail is the perfect touch and very Pretty Woman. I can’t wait to see more from this talented designer, let’s hope she doesnt keep me waiting till next year’s fair!

hf post slink

I look so different today. I was honestly a bit bored of photographing myself, and thought it was time to slip on a different face. My skins are from The Body Co and I’m still working out how to photograph them best, theyre quite tricky to work with tbh. That being said, I think Lavender, shown above and below works really well with the fair releases from Slink.

hf post slink 2

Is this not the perfect example of a so sharp it could cut you bob? It’s called Angel, but it looks kinda devilish to me :P

hf post slink 3

Rebecca is a sweet casual ponytail. I love all the pieces falling out at the front, as RL layered hair totally does towards the end of the work day. Siddean has been so inspired by the fair, she has apparently added 2 extra styles to her booth since I shot these pics…oh yes…I’m so going back for em!

Hair Fair – LeLutka

Hair Fair Banner 2011

LeLutka has been bringing their A game lately, and their releases for Hair Fair are no different. I can honestly say I love them all, especially as you get fair exclusives with each purchase.

hf post lelu

Some of you may have noticed a price difference between the fair releases and regular store packs. Thats because when you purchase a pack from the fair, you will get hairbases to match, and let me tell you, the bases are incredible.

hf post lelu 2

You can only get the bases with fair purchases, so keep trying to tp in to snatch them up while you can!

hf post lelu 3

The styles themselves embrace the theme of the fair so beautifuly, I get such a summer vibe from all of them.

hf post lelu 4

They also utilise the roots system, which I love. Obviously roots wont show up on darker purchases, but they work incredibly well on my favorite colour packs.

The style shown above is LeLutka’s goodybag gift. You get a fatpack. Yay for generosity!

Hair Fair – Wasabi Pills

Hair Fair Banner 2011

I think it’s safe to say minime has made a full and speedy recovery, apparently I’m a meanie who’s mean (I asked her to clean her room). Aah the joys and rewards of motherhood. However, while she’s in said disaster zone room, I can sneak in a ninja post!

hf post wasabi

There’s something about Hair Fair that brings out the adorable, the wacky and the totally eccentric in our beloved hair creators. Today I have the adorable portion covered with the releases from Wasabi Pills. I’ve totally rocked this look above in RL, especially when minime was a baby and still on the bottle. She would get so fussy if there was any hair on my face, and this was a super quick solution!

hf post wasabi 2

hf post wasabi 3

How cute are these bows! You get a huge choice of textures and colours at the click of a button, so it’s very easy to match to your outfit. I love the heavy bangs too, in RL they annoy me, but in SL I can rock it.

hf post wasabi 4

Supercute braids to finish, another summer favie. I used to love wearing braids to the beach, then shaking them out in the evening for a no effort beachy wavy look. Course now you can do the same thing with sea salt styling spray, but you get my point! I’d better go now, I hear banging and crashing of the disastrous kind coming from the evil room of doom, LOL she really must be cranky with me :P

Hair Fair 2011 – Loq

Hair Fair Banner 2011

I’m finally able to catch my breath for a few and talk in my posts! It’s been an amazing few months leading up to the fair this year, our little crew has worked their collective butts off and moved pretty seamlessly from one job to the next. There will be so much more to come, a highlight for me in the last 2 fairs has been the Wigs For Kids rep coming inworld and supporting the event so publicly. Do be sure to say hi if you happen to lag slide into him :P

loq 1

Today I’m showing the gorgeous release from Loq. Perfect summer updo, the whispy bits make it a style you could wear casualy with a bikini, or you could totaly rock it with a breezy summer dress.

loq 2

Asymmetric hair FTW! When I first moved back to London 2 years ago (damn it’s gone quick!) I had waist length hair. One of the first things I did was head to the hairdressers to have it all chopped off. The result was pretty similar to this style, because every hairdresser in London was perfecting their version of the “Pob”. For those that dont know, thats Posh Spice’s bob!!. Gotta love the tabloids over here, they have a loco name for just about everything!

loq 3

Another perfect summer style, rough dried after a day at the beach, not too overstyled or straightened. I really love how all the designers have jumped in with this year’s theme, it’s making for some really beautiful hair.
