    Hair Fair 2023 – Geek & Ni.Ju

    Hair Fair 2023 - Geek and Ni.Ju

    Picture taken on location at Hair Fair 2023.

    It has been a long time since I have done an actual post, and I will admit to being very overwhelmed by it all. It’s silly, really, after 17 years of blogging about Second Life, but all of a sudden I am shy. Just as well I believe so strongly in the subject matter. Today I do my first post on this years Hair Fair and while a week already in, it has been an incredible ride again this year. Such wonderful content creators have joined the event, some for the first time, some returning after breaks and some that do the event each and every year. I am so glad to be able to interact with them leading up to and during the event each and every time.

    The theme for this years Hair Fair Hares ended up Gardening, do not ask me how exactly, but it happened. I had so much fun creating the little add on pieces of mesh. So when I saw that Geek created a set of Headphones that had a sprout option it made me even happier. The sprout even wiggles a merry little dance as you wear them, which is just adorable, as they do strongly advise playing music to plants. The colour coordination options for the headphones are fantastic. Even if you choose one colour, you can still accent it with the HUD. I was able to choose this colour combination, and thanks to the magic of having a creator who owns two brands (Vinyl), the bomber jacket had the same colour range to make mix and matching a breeze.

    Now about this hair. Ni.Ju has created this feathery styled bob length style that is a stand out style for many, but not only have I seen it on lots of people so far in various ways, I just loved that because of the way it was created, that putting on the headphones made it look like the tightness of them against the hair caused the flapping out feathery sides, so they were a pairing without even planning it. I have also seen a stunning picture paired with a hat also from Hair Fair that created that same stunning outcome. The bangs are also just divine. So I am really glad that Ni.Ju joined us this year and is already looking forward to next, which makes me very happy.

    All purchases made at Hair Fair donate a percentage to Wigs for Kids, minimum amount is 15%. Bandanas and Hair Fair Hares and Hair-wraps in the Bandana Booths are 100% Donated to Wigs for Kids.

    Hair Fair 2022 – Bliensen + Maitai, Kokolores,Nantra, Exile

     

    Exile Nantra - Hair Fair 2022

    There are so many fun and surprising items at this years Hair Fair. Bliensen + Maitai used their skills to create these amazing hairdryer accessories, wall mounts, table decor and this fantastic animated hairdryer using flexi for the cord. A hud with all different texture options, so much fun, and the animation worked out so well for this style by Kokolores that has the front of the hair raised as though being blown by a dryer. Kokolores has some great unisex shorter styles available, and this one was just perfect.

    Nantra joined us this year with this fun set of poses that gives you a hair brush to sing into, I doubt there are many on the planet that have not at one time sung into their hairbrush and Nantra nailed it with this set. The hair by Exile was perfect to show some colour, some getting my groove on in the middle of getting ready for a raging night out. Using the poses and my Lelutka Axis hud for the face animations, this was so fun.

    Hair Fair 2022 – Equal, Pritty, Opale, ADE, Miura

    Pr!tty & Equal - Hair Fair 2022

    ADE Opale Miura - Hair Fair 2022

    I am a huge hat fan as you already know, so these two great hats by Equal had me very happy, then add on to that that Pr!tty did some bangs add ons as their release I was able to combine some and resize and place them so that they looked like the hair style was all up and under the hat and tendrils escaping. The reason that this was easy was of course that Pr!tty made their bangs MOD \o/ which made me incredibly happy. It was great fun putting this together, and I look forward to them having more mod items in future, so that stuff like this is achievable.

    ADE did beautiful styles this year, as always 🙂 and their gift style is beautiful. This hair I am wearing on the left is Melody and it has options for style and left back right back, behind shoulders and forward of shoulders with so many sizing options for the chest area it is fantastic.

    The Opale hair was a great option to showcase the Miura headband, I love the dead straight look and then the beautiful headband with so many fabric and metal options.

    Hair Fair will close Sunday night so make sure you run back over again and help us help Wigs for Kids.

    Hair Fair 2022 – Astralia, Sintiklia & Venge

    Astralia - Hair Fair 2022Sintiklia & Venge - Hair Fair 2022

    Astralia did such fun and vibrant styles this year, I definitely felt a Coachella vibe and ran with it. The hair not only has great hair colour options but you can even choose from many options of colours for the flowers and come up some stunning looks, there is even black in there, which would create such a great macabre look.

    The ponytail tied off with a scarf is great fun too, casual or dressy and lots of options of print or solid colours to choose from, but you may have realised by now I am a camo fan.

    Sintiklia created this beautiful feathery updo style, tendrils a plenty. I really loved the look enough to mix with the Venge hairsticks also at Hair Fair 2022. The options for the updo are great, you get different rigged versions as well as unrigged and add on parts. There are different materials settings and just a great selection of colours to choose from.

    Hair Fair 2022 – Camo, Grasshopper St. Curious Kitties and Fantavatar & Moonstruck

    CAMO & Grasshopper St. -  Hair Fair 2022Curious Kitties & Grasshopper St. -  Hair Fair 2022Fantavatar & Moonstruck -  Hair Fair 2022

     

    I had so much fun with these looks. I have to say I totally copied the creator of Grasshopper St. by wearing one of her stunning hats with dreads. She turned up to set up her booth that way and I was instantly in love with the look, and have been thinking about it ever since. Also not only did Grasshopper St. make some gorgeous items for the event (the hat and the gorgeous hair comb) but she also donated some divine turbans to us for the bandana booths, where the sale of each will donate 100% to Wigs for Kids. Her items are so pretty, and I look forward to wearing them with many other looks in future. 

    The dreads are by CAMO and they they are not only great in style, but they are always really low complexity as it is a very important thing to the Camo creator to make sure their items are well optimised. A hairbase is included that is tintable and the metal rings and crowns in the dreads have different colours on the HUD.

    The fun style by Curious Kitties instantly had me thinking Geisha, so I liked creating this very modern take on the look, with the haircomb from Grasshopper St. Which has a great texture change assortment of colours.

    The Fantavatar & Moonstruck style is so soft and well structured that even though a theme hairstyle, its softness and beauty makes it possible to either theme or glamorise the look. I used the Sap hairbase again and adding some celestial themed jewellery made it all fun.

    All these styles and accessories are at Hair Fair 2022, and for the rest of the week you can make a difference with each purchase to help Wigs for Kids.

    Hair Fair 2022 – No.Match , Mura & Venge

    No.Match Mura and Venge - Hair Fair 2022

    No.Match did some fantastic styles this year, and the unisex style has to sell the most, because we made a deal that if it does I get a virtual box of chocolates, make that happen for me won’t you.  This No.Summerwind style is a delight, and the hairband portion has options of colour via the HUD, included in the pack are also hairbases if needed. I love the way they name their styles, it is fun and inviting and it just makes for great feels on top of the already beautiful styles.

    Mura beauty created this puffs style, with this amazing hairbase. It is amazing to have such creativity through hair, and I added these beautiful hairsticks by Venge that have a hud for different crystal and wood options. I really like how much they just add to the look.

    Nova has returned to Hair Fair after a few years absence and it was with so much excitement…she has done some show stopping styles, and her texture packs are gorgeous. I used the beautiful hair clips created by Rowne that are also at Hair Fair with one style, and can definitely see them and the options of them playing a great role in many styles in future. I used the SAP hairbase with these styles to give a little more something to the looks.

    Hair Fair 2022 – Ayame Ame & Poison Rouge

    Ayame Ame Poison Rouge - Hair Fair 2022

    Ayame Ame always makes such sleek and sophisticated styles, and even with the windblown look of one style I still feel glam. Then with the addition of the Poison Rouge hair accessories the violet fascinator makes it a perfect day time lunch with the ladies look. Then the Cleopatra headpiece is a showstopper. 

    All these delights are at this years Hair Fair, and while it is still on until the 10th that means every purchase helps Wigs for Kids.
