it’s that time of year again, where everyone goes a little hair crazy! i wanted to show you guys some of my favourites out of my hair fair haul and talk about the cause that hair fair benefits too.
in case you can’t tell, i’m super into the whole heavy, blunt bangs look this year. i may be a little obsessed in fact! blues has this super adorable style called rosalie which reminds me of gwen stefani in the 90s. i’m in love with it! atomic’s oh hunny is more cutesy and sweet, with a neat little knotted headband on top. adore & abhor won me over with their chu style, which is like something straight from an anime! the bow you get with the hair is also simply gorgeous and has lots of customisation options! i’ll be wearing it a lot, with and without the hair it was made for.
tableau vivant always conjures images of sleek, smooth styles in my head, which is why i was surprised at this half shaved, half dreadlocked, unisex style. it was a pleasant surprise though! aside from milk hair and discord designs, i’ve never found dreads in sl to look even close to good, but tv have managed to make them realistic as well as pretty! red mint is another style with bangs, but what draws me to red mint is their huge amount of unnatural colours. if you’re like me and like bright or pastel hair, check them out! ison has brought three lorde inspired styles to hair fair this year and this one, diamond, is my favourite. it’s curly, and mesh, and succeeds at looking natural and implying movement without the need for annoying, laggy flexi curls!
little bones is always bringing their a-game and i’m so happy that they’re one of my sponsors, just in general! nova has overhauled her huds and released loads of gorgeous styles for hair fair this year. my favourites are these three though – i adore rabbit heart with its pulled back side section and big swept over lengths, (it’s like my rl hair!) the bay is a voluminous style with long, wavy ends which just screams late night beach party and effortless cool, and glow is another wavy style with a kickass hat. if you want to look like you’re going to kick ass and take names, nova’s made something for you this year!!
of course, the hair fair is all to benefit wigs for kids, a charity which concentrates on restoring the self esteem and confidence of children who’ve lost their hair for any medical reason, like alopecia, hair loss from chemotherapy, burns and other medical conditions. as wfk say themselves, when kids are sick already, the last thing they should worry about is how they look, and wigs for kids provides a lot of assurance and confidence to kids who are self conscious about their hair loss. i can’t emphasise enough that you should donate what you can afford – through sl donation booths, through hair fair purchases or through rl means.
