Wasabi Midori

Walk on Air Hair

Walk on Air Hair

I call this “Walk on Air” hair because I always find Wasabi Pills’ mesh hair so delightful. MissAllSunday Lemon was one of the first hair makers to work with mesh, and it shows. Her pieces are well-developed with gorgeous textures and she can jump genres from fantasy to casual in a snap.

Walk on Air Hair

MissAllSunday’s specialty is the braid, and she uses it liberally in her pieces for Hair Fair. Braided bangs in a winsome face-framing curly ‘do, pigtail braids, and a thick braid pulled to the front, MissAllSunday shows off her mesh skills, even throwing in a windblown look.

Walk on Air Hair

Her textures and hair colors are lush and shadowed well in her mesh. (It’s not just texture—shadow and highlighting play a part in her hair). And the best part? A part of the sale of each of these pieces goes to Wigs for Kids, which will leave you walking on air.

Ensnared by Hair

Ensnared by Hair

I got Queue Marlowe’s hair for Hair Fair the moment she finished, slapped it on my head and went “wow”! Once again, Queue made a splash at Hair Fair with three new unique styles combining mesh and flexi and curls and braids. As always, they come with Queue’s great textures on her texture-change HUD.

Ensnared by Hair

Queue gives us a taste of what she’s good at. First the curls, which are bouncy and twisty and voluminous. Combining mesh and flexi, she gives the ultimate in curly hair. Then she made a stylish short cut with curls tumbling around the face. Finally a fantasy braid, gathered across the face and wrapped around to drape over the shoulder.

Every single purchase kicks a bit to Wigs for Kids, so you’re not only getting ensnared by this hair but also giving to kids who need hair implants after medical conditions have made them lose their own. It’s a win-win proposition!

Honey Bear Hair

Honey Bear Hair

The styles Carina Larsen is offering at Hair Fair made me think of a honey bear because of their charming textures and styles.

Honey Bear Hair

Carina does include a men’s hair, which I wear myself, trying to make it as cute as the others. But for women there are three styles, one a generous gift!

Honey Bear Hair

All the styles include Carina’s texture-change HUD and the capability to change the colors of the ribbons. Find these darling new styles and many more at Hair Fair.

Buenos Aires Hair

Buenos Aires Hair

I named this after the beautiful capital of Argentina because this hair reminds me of the gorgeous women of that cosmopolitan city. (Also because I am running out of rhymes, but really, the hair is gorgeous.) Gia Pawpad has switched up her brand name and moved to mesh with a great texture change HUD that allows for such lovely color looks as these.

Buenos Aires Hair

Upswept or worn down, the hairstyles are lovely and fit well (as you can see over this gorgeous sweater dress from Poulet Koenkamp which includes its own texture-change HUD with what seem a million options but are really only something like 27).

Buenos Aires Hair

Wear your hair back or up to show earrings like these from AvaGardner Kungler or wear it down to reveal the gorgeous ombre textures. Gia is offering all four of these styles at Hair Fair with part of each sale going to Wigs for Kids. Make yourself beautiful while doing something beautiful.

Hair Without a Care

Hair Without a Care

OK, let’s be straight up honest here. The reason we love hair in SL is because really, it’s so easy to have. No washing, no irons, no stinky dyes, no perms. Just a few clicks and we have transformed our look with a new hair. Mina Nakamura makes this especially easy with her featured hair for Hair Fair this year. She made two long casual girl looks—one with bangs and one with hair tucked winsomely behind the ear. (I have to say that one is just so “real” for a young woman’s look.)

Hair Without a Care

She also offers a men’s look, and guys, stop complaining there are no hairs out there for you. This one I have seen on many men in real life. Mina includes a great shaved realistic hairbase with it. And as always, all her hairs come with her great texture-change HUD so you don’t have to mess around with hair colors (or dye).

Not For Squares Hair

Not For Squares Hair

Tabata Jewell’s hair is simply not for squares. She is always reinventing, reimagining and reconfiguring how hair can be on SL. Now with mesh squarely in her hands, she is giving forth new styles for your pleasure at Hair Fair.

Not For Squares Hair

From updos to long-straight-down-to-there hair, Tabata is providing enough choices for you at Hair Fair to at least get one and knock a few cents over to Wigs for Kids. Tabata includes a great selection of colors in each of her texture-change HUDs and the option to tint it up just a little more.

Not For Squares Hair

The cool thing is Tabata is willing to try anything, at least once. One ‘do is wild with kinky crimped curls and another is variations of hair piled up with a stray lock or two escaping.

Not For Squares Hair

Hair Fair is still on, yes, until June 27, with tons of hair options for the discriminating buyer. Run over, duck into the dye boxes from “Esselle” and get yourself some hair. Don’t be square.

I Declare, It’s Hair!

I Declaire! It's Hair!

Are you surprised? More hair. This set comes from Harry Hyx, who does his own mesh and textures for other items and has ventured into the hair arena for Hair Fair. Like many designers, Harry is offering a full feature texture-change HUD with great textures.

I Declaire! It's Hair!

I love the styles he has offered: two curly and one wavy, close-to-the-head. They don’t seem outre but there are no others quite like them at Hair Fair. If you’re a fan of curly or wavy and want mesh rather than drawn textures, these may be just the ticket, especially with the subtle roots. Glad to see Harry has leapt into the hair fray!

No Scare Hair

No Scare Hair

If you look at Mirja Mill’s hair for Hair Fair this year, you might think she was one fierce chick. The truth is Mirja’s a pussycat who makes ferocious fantasy hair. Mirja is rolling out the feral and fiery for Hair Fair this year.

No Scare Hair

I can’t help but think Mirja had a bit of fun with these. She went back to her fantasy roots with these pieces, combining her great imagination for styles with her exquisite jewelry work. If you get one of these styles, you get that extra bonus of jewels and horns.

No Scare Hair

But don’t limit yourself to thinking that they are simply for RP: many can be worn without so they would be wonderful on their own as simple hair pieces. I especially like the two long styles with braids and sensuous locks curling down the back. Imagine these in another color not on a drow, and they are suddenly very romantic and sexy.

No Scare Hair

Mirja’s ‘dos all come with a great texture-change HUD with several options in both regular and “fade” combos. Additionally, the jewels have color change options, so you can customize your look to the nth degree.

Let me give a quick note about this absolutely stunning drow skin that Inka Mexicola is offering in a gacha at Kustom 9. Get it. Seriously.

No Scare Hair

I want to note that Mirja is always amazingly generous for charity festivals such as this one. She co-sponsored a sim for Fashion for Life and set up a gorgeous store. For Hair Fair she has created these five exquisite pieces, kicking 50% to Wigs for Kids. She is also offering the Medusa style with a texture-change HUD as a visitors’ gift. That’s beyond amazing. She is definitely a sweetheart, regardless of her wild and untamed locks.No Scare Hair

Hair Midair

Hair Midair

Hair in the air is Kavar Cleanslate’s trick in trade. Windblown locks and beautiful textures, luscious thick voluminous waves, sexy, sensuous hair. Kavar was pretty much the first guy on the block to do mesh hair well and one of the first to have a texture-change HUD, and so he’s kind of the king of hair. He proves it once again with his pieces for Hair Fair this year.

Hair Midair

Kavar knows that both men and women want sexy, and he’s offering three pieces for women and two for men (though I am showing the men’s pieces on myself because I tried to do them on my male avatar look and it was just a big icky mess).

Hair Midair

Kavar’s hair always reminds me of sunshine and seashore. Windblown, bleachy blonde (though he has a full offering of many colors, the Stefani with a blonde streak always does it for me). It’s the hair of Baby Girls (not children) and Bunnies (not the rabbits) and is ideal for the sexy fantasy of SL. Hair Midair

Every year Kavar outdoes himself for Hair Fair, and this year is no exception. With his great HUD that provides a bazillion choices (ok, I exaggerate, but it sure is lot), gorgeous textures and beautifully constructed mesh, each piece is a winner.

A Pair of Hair

A Pair of Hair

The English language is funny. In French or German (or probably other languages), hair is plural but in English, it’s singular and means all the hair. So here we go, a pair of hair. I didn’t know Kyla Gabe’s work before my pal TOmmy introduced me, and I was delighted to see these great long styles at Hair Fair. Kyla uses a great HUD with her hair and offers styles that are more girl-next-door.

A quick shout out about this skin, which I will blog again. Voshie Paine is offering this delightfully freckled skin at Season’s Story. The truth is girls with freckles have them all over just like this skin, and this is RL girl next door for me.
