Meet the Hair Fair Designers: Euryops Lemon of Cheveux

Cheveux Open Cafe by Mariru Catnap

What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you?

I started making hair flow products three months ago. We have been making hair since 2008. The most important thing for me is to make hair that looks real. Land Impact is aimed at light and yet delicate design

CHEVEUX in French is hair. I wanted to make global hair loved by people all over the world.

What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you? 

I started creating in secondlife about one year ago. Hair Fair was my first big event, so it is nice to celebrate my creating anniversary with such an amazing event. The motivation to do hair was to make some gender neutral styles for myself.

Lock&Tuft Envy @ Hair Fair 2017 – Cajsa Lilliehook

How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you? 

lock&tuft was an aesthetic and phonaesthetic choice more than significant to myself personally. I’m a graphic designer in first life and the process of brand development is a fun, creative experience for me. The icon of a rabbit, however, came from one of my first friends in sl, Tori, who had made a joke about a hair store with a hare. Continue reading

Joining the Hair Fair Demo Group Will Make You a Happy Shopper

Hair Fair 2017

The biggest hair even of the year starts this Saturday when the gates open for Hair Fair 2017.

Demos will be sent out in the Demo group on the Friday, June 30th. You will be able to try all the Hair Fair styles before the event opens, so that you do not have to deal with lag of trying styles on at the event.

Demo Parties have become a Hair Fair tradition. Gather your friends, grab the demos, and try them on in sync. One, two, three…Demo!!! There’s even a drinking game, first to rez, passes out a cocktail to everyone else…but make sure it’s a virtual cocktail so you don’t pass out before you’ve tried on everything.

How do you join the group? Copy and paste the the following into local chat in Second Life and join the Hair Fair DEMO Group: second life:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about

his is a FREE group. Here’s the thing to know about Hair Fair, there is not one single group of any kind that costs you to join.  They send notices in the Hair Fair DEMO Group and the Subscribomatic owned by HairFairSL Core or Sasy Scarborough ONLY.

Okay, for the not so fun stuff. Because Hair Fair is such a successful event, some people try to take advantage by pretending to be part of Hair Fair, creating pseudo groups they charge to join. They are scams.  If someone invites you to join a group with Hair Fair in the name that is not free, it is a scam. There are no gift cards, reduced prices cards, or anything that suggests some kind of deal at the event. If you are sent any such item, decline and abuse report. 

See you on Saturday and onwards at Hair Fair 2017 where all purchases will donate a percentage to Wigs for Kids.

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches I took to the trees because I was doing a book review of a book called The Solace of Trees that I reviewed on my book blog and on YouTube. It’s about refugees and it is timely, important, and not terribly well done.  Continue reading

Just Because

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”

Just because you think you’re so pretty,
And just because you think you’re so hot,
Well, just because you think you’ve got something
That no other girl has got,

I love Just Because clothing, not only because the textures are well-done and the mesh is perfectly rigged, because it reminds me of one of my favorite albums as a kid. It belonged to my parents and I played it over and over and over. One of the songs was Just Because.
