Hi there! I did a post like this for Hair Fair 2012 and I found it really helped me decide on which style to choose from. I remember staying up all night after cruising around the Hair Fair and cramming like I would have back in college lol. This year there was not time to do it earlier……but I have been working on this for a few days now. These are my picks for the 2013 Hair Fair, of course I can always add to this post as well…………just in case I do not have enough hair yes?! ūüėČ

Some of these styles are tried and true designers that I love, some are new to me as well. I have eleven sets in all and ten styles per set……….that is a lot of hair I know, but I am just a tad obsessed……..maybe!? hehe Since the beginning of my sl I have had such a love for all the pretty hairstyles. This has quietly become my passion, ok maybe not so quietly when I post like this.

All in all………….the Hair Fair is my favorite event of the year and I wait eagerly for it’s arrival. I am so happy to have been included in this fabulous event for the last two seasons, and am thankful for being chosen to do so. Hair is such an important asset in how we look at ourselves, in real life as well as second life. But here we are very much fashion oriented and need different styles for different outfits, and Hair Fair is a one stop shop for all the amazing designers to show off their talent.

Now of course the most important aspect of the Hair Fair is that every sale gives a portion¬†of the money collected to Wigs for Kids, I think this is such a wonderful charity. We help children through very hard times and sickness……….there is no better reason than this to shop like crazy. I may buy a lot of hair, but for this amazing charity anything goes.

I will have a cut in this post this year…….so if you are looking for more…………..check that cut. I am showing all these beautiful locks¬†so you can see exactly how these styles¬†will look inworld. I tend to sit up on my platform and commiserate with all my loot (inserts wicked little laugh here), so this is a way to show it all off at once what might take me a few weeks to blog. I hope you enjoy the post! Oh and all credits are located at the bottom.

Have a wonderful night or day and I will be back with more 2013 Hair Fair goodness…………………………………….See you soonish ūüôā

Yes I am back again with Mina Hair. New to mesh but already rocking the styles away. The Ineke¬†style (top) has a wonderful beaded headband with long locks swept up in the back. Two other styles Mirjam¬†and Petra are long locks and beautiful as well, Laura is a fantastic full updo¬†and I personally¬†love this style, as this is how I wear my hair in rl¬†all the time! I love the textures Mina uses as well as the tones. I am¬†obsessing over¬†the ombre¬†look and I think all four styles are must have’s. Mina has all of these available at The 2013 Hair Fair. I hope everyone has had the chance to get in and be able to rez by now, the Building Block (My son saw this build when he woke up on Saturday am and called the Hair Fair, Lego Land lol) Theme this year is amazingly colorful and fun.

Please make sure not to unfortunately get scammed. There¬†are reports of someone sending invites to join a group supposedly for the Hair Fair, requesting a 250L-500L join fee for gifts. There is no such thing, all designers have the Hair Fair Gift’s out in individual booths, only buy these. What people will do!!!

I hope everyone is gearing up for the last day of the 2013 Hair Fair, when we all shed our locks and wear beautiful bandana’s in support of ‘Wigs for Kids’. There are many blocks in which to grab all the wonderfully¬†amazing Bandana’s made for this event from people all over the grid. All proceeds go to ‘Wigs for Kids’ so I picked up quite a few. These are a wonderful wear when you are attending a high volume event as well…….so keep them around and pull them out when needed.

The San Remo¬†Cuff I am wearing is from Maxi Gossamer¬†and is Materials Ready Cuff, after standing around for a long while on Firestorm, I finally figured out I could not see it as it was supposed to be…………so for now I have switched back to the SL Beta Viewer. Which hurts lol, I love Firestorm for so many things but I can withstand until I can see the new Materials in it. I love that this is coming……..I just get cranky over the switch over process……..which seems to take so long rofl. But then again this is Second Life I am talking about………as I bang my head off my notebook hehehe.

Have a wonderful Night or Day and I will certainly……………………………………………………………………See you soonish ūüôā

The Queen of Babylon

The Queen of Babylon (1)

The Queen of Babylon (2)

Hai¬†there! I am bringing you my version of the Queen of¬†Babylon today. I put on this fabulous Mesh/Flexi¬†Maria Gown from Dew, then scavenged my suitcase for the most beautiful Semiramis Style from EMO-tions. This style is an amazing creation…… with the thinly laid braids and of course woven with a gorgeous gold beads, also available with silver beads as well. I knew I had just grabbed this exotic style only a few days ago……but my inventory needs a rework lolz.

I am also wearing the beautiful Ava, one of Belleza’s¬†Best Buy Skins that were out this last weekend. I cannot seem to get enough of Ava, any version I will grab in a heartbeat. I also added and¬†simply adore the Upper Arm Snake Bracelet from Baiastice, which¬†is available at FaMESHed.

I am planning on entering the top photo in the 2013 Hair Fair Flickr Competition on which the theme is ‘Movies Inspire Me’¬†I am choosing ‘The Queen of Babylon’ for my photo theme.¬†¬†I am huge black and white movie fan, I also do not mind subtitles which drives my hubs completely nutz¬†hehe, and¬†I know my outfit is not exact, but that is the fun of dressing¬†up and¬†depicting who you want to be in Second Life I think.

I also squee a little when talking about Hair Fair…..My favorite event in Second Life. I have such a fascination with Hair styles of all kinds, maybe due to the fact that they are so interchangeable here in our beloved sl, A hair style also contributes to many an outfit in a huge way….and of course this event helps out Wigs for Kids……an amazing charity…..so I make sure to grab all my favorite styles. Hope to see your 2013 Hair Fair Photos in the Flickr Group as well.
