Hair Fair 2013: Bandana Day Kits Available Now!

bandana

Every year, as a part of Hair Fair, there is a day where we shed our hair and wear bandanas in support of those who have lost their hair due to illness or treatments – this year it’s July 28, 2013. Anyone can make a bandana and have it put up for sale along with those done by designers! The kits are provided for free, and each bandana is sold for L$ 50 (with transfer permissions, so you can gift them). This year the base bandanas are mesh and were created by Mel Vanbeeck with easy retexturing in mind – the UV’s were made with a square in mind. If you’d like a kit, please contact Sasy Scarborough in-world.

Please note: since these bandanas will be set for sale, you need to have full perm items for decorating, as they cannot be sold otherwise. Completed bandanas need to be sent to CharitySasy String by July 3, 2013 so that they have plenty of time to be bought.

Any questions about the kits, bandanas, or Bandana Day can be directed to Sasy Scarborough or Whimsy Winx.

Hair Fair 2012: 2 By Lamb

Hair Fair 2012 is flying by so fast! It’s been nearly a week since my last post so I must show you 2 mesh hairs that I got from lamb, which I absolutely adore. The hair shown above is called Wild at Heart, and I am wearing it in a color called Unicorn. This is from the Macaron color pack, in case you also want a less traditional shade of hair.

I got a second style in the same Macaron color pack; this one is called In Heaven and I’m wearing the Koolaid color. It kind of does remind me of grape Kool-aid which I loved as a kid for some reason. Besides these two styles, there are 2 more women’s hair and one men’s, which could be unisex as well. All styles donate a portion of the sales to the charity picked by Hair Fair 2012, Wigs for Kids. More info on the fair can be found on the official blog: http://hairfair.wordpress.com/

I also had a cute look going on today with the first style, so I thought I would share it with you.

Hair Fair 2012: 2 By Wasabi Pills

Wasabi Pills has started to become one of my very favorite brands for mesh hair. Their styles are impeccably made, and every single one seems to call out to me. However, I restrained myself and grabbed 2 of the styles available at Hair Fair 2012. The first is called Ichigo (which means strawberry in Japanese) and I got it in a blonde pack since I felt quite summery with the way it was tied up. It comes with a HUD that allows you to color the scarf in two parts, I did them in blue and black so that you could see which areas that was.

Then I decided to get the Zoey hair in browns because it felt more of an earthy style to me. I love pigtails, and the headband on it makes it different from all the other similar styles out there. Again there is a HUD to color the beads on each level of the bands, as well as change the color of the bands themselves.

A portion of every item sold at Hair Fair 2012 will go to the charity Wigs For Kids. The amount varies depending on the participant, but it’s a great cause that helps kids who have lost their hair due to cancer or other illnesses get a quality wig that suits them. More info on the fair can be found on the official blog: http://hairfair.wordpress.com/

Also, remember to add all your pictures with your fave new Hair Fair 2012 styles to the Flickr Group – http://www.flickr.com/groups/hairfair2012/

Hair Fair Stuff – Sorry I’m Late!

I have finally got around to finishing up with all the Hair Fair 2011 demos, and started to pick up the ones that I found really suited me and my personality. The great thing about this year’s fair is that all hairstyles donate at least a portion of the proceeds to Wigs For Kids. Now you don’t need to only grab certain items, you can feel free to get all the ones you like!

The first one I’m wearing is from Exile, called Hollie Dae. I love hair accessories, and this style very much suits my cutesy side with the bow headband. Also, Exile has some new hair textures going on, and they are really delicious…I have made it a point to get more styles when the wallet allows. Slurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Platinum/111/100/22

The second style I picked up was from vive9 (written as .:vive nine:. for the inventory folder) called Lindsey and I got the new Dye Tones pack which features ombré and dip-dye tones which are very much in style right now. In real life I probably wouldn’t color my hair like this, so it’s nice to get something a bit out of the ordinary. Plus, anything that has a pink version will automatically go on my head. Slurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Iridium/165/95/21

The third style I picked out is Luna from Magika and their long hair is always so gorgeous. I don’t really have too many very long options in my inventory, and this loose-braid makes it more interesting than a lot. I’m also really into roots right now, and Magika has a roots pack that lets you get a number of natural shades in a roots version. It also comes in a mirrored version, with the part and the braid on the other side. Slurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Platinum/130/26/21

So those are my 3 big purchases so far, there are a number of great styles that I am still after, as well as very cute freebie or dollarbie gifts in the booths.
