Hair Fair – The End

Hair Fair Banner 2011

It’s very nearly time for Hair Fair to close it’s doors for another year. It’s been absolutely amazing and as per last year, I’ve been blown away by our little community. Even though I’ve been posting 2-3 times a day since the fair started, I still ran out of time. So I’ve made a wee collage of the last few stores I wanted to show. Full single versions are on my Flickr stream if you want to see close ups. Also, you will find notes on the collage so you know who’s who and whats what. Now please excuse me while I lay down in a dark room for a week :P

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 – Vanity

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!

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
