Today is Bandana Day, the culmination of Hair Fair, the last hurrah of the most widely and avidly anticipated fashion event of the year. We have drooled, fawned and mulled over the offerings of the many hair stylists. We have spent the last two weeks discovering new ones that excite our interest and rediscovering old stylists we have neglected. Perennial favorites have proven their worth again and brand new brands have shown that age isn’t everything. And here we are, on the final day taking a moment to be a little more serious and reflect on the ultimate and abiding purpose of Hair Fair, providing hair to children who have lost their own due to medical reasons.
Hair speaks for us. Before we say hello, our hair has telegraphed all sorts of information about our health, grooming habits and character. Is our style sassy or subdued, old-fashioned or avant garde, retro or modern? Is it easy to care for and intricately styled? It’s our first introduction and when illness silences that form of expression, children feel alienated and alone. Wigs for Kids restores that voice. And so, today, on this final day of Hair Fair, we show our solidarity with those who have lost their hair and remove our own hair and wear a bandana.
Of course, no hair does not mean no style! The bandana is super stylish and is from Lelutka, where unfashionable has been removed from the dictionary. The dress is from Kunglers and is also produced for a fundraising event – The Hope for Emilia fundraiser to assist the survivors of the earthquake in Emilia, Italy. The hot python pumps are also from Kunglers.
Now! Drop your hair! Put on a bandana and catch the last few hours of Hair Fair because it’s a long, long wait until Hair Fair 2013.
