Hair Fair 2013, Hairoin, and Plastik

Hair Fair is upon us once again! It's a time of finding new hair shops and rediscovering old ones, of celebrating designers' creativity in the service of charity, and just generally having some SL fun - including showing off our favorite hairs!

For my first exhibition, I bring you one of my long time favorites: Hairoin, by Elke Banting. Elka makes some really cool and fun hairs, with lots of punk, fantasy, and goth influence, so if you're ever looking for something in those styles I *definitely* recommend checking out her shops (she also owns Kiss Hair). One of my very favorite things about her hair is her color collections - there's a huge amount, and the colors are rich, glossy, and gorgeous. And this is a little weird and geeky, but I love her color and colorpack names - they're dark and clever and coordinated. So far, all her hairs are sculpt and prim, which works just fine for me - I don't ever have to deal with the issue of mesh missing and needing to relog just to see it, and it generally gives me a lot more control over fitting. Speaking of which - her hairs are always mod AND include a resize script, so get the best of both worlds.

I'm also complimenting these hairs with lots of things from Aikea Rieko, of Plastik, who is currently having a storewide 50% off sale through July 25th! Yes, that means you should get your butt over there and pick up all those things you've been wanting! I really enjoy her textures, the sexy and elegant cut of her clothes, and the really lovely things she does with her skins. If you've never been, now's the time to check this stuff out and give it a try on a discount!
