Tonight saw the beginning of the early access for bloggers at the Hair Fair 2014 and there was a lot of oohing and ahhing midst all the shopping. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to join this group and so will be sharing plenty of exciting hairstyles from stores that are my “old favourites” as well as plenty of new to me delights. But for this first post about Hair Fair 2014 items, I wanted to focus on not hair.. but the bandanas. As you may or may not know the Hair Fair event is a fundraising event that supports Wigs for Kids. Hairstylists in SL create several exclusives and nominate a percentage of the sale of these items to go to charity. Here is a link to the Hair Fair website with more information: http://hairfair.wordpress.com/
Scattered around the sims are maps, cube buses ( simple transportation which can help in lag) and donation boxes. While you cruise around keep an eye out for the Bandana displays, these like the one I am wearing have all been created by designers and fellow SL residents, so for a mere 50L you can come away with a bandana that reflects your mood or personality.
The Hair Fair is huge.. take plenty of money and allow plenty of time. The best course of action is to join the Hair Fair Demo group, secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about this is free to join, and the designers have already begun sending out demos, so you can create a folder of “must haves” even before you step onto the sim. SLurls will be available just as the Fair becomes public entry which is on the 12th July, so not long now. It runs until the 27th so you will have ample time to make several repeat journeys, because as well as a lot of fantastic new releases you will find a large number of free or dollarbie items made available as gifts from different designers.
