As Cajsa so eloquently put it, Hair Fair culminates today in us taking off our hair to celebrate the beauty inside of us all. Our hair is a mane that speaks to the world before we open our mouths, but how much more important is our character and person than that? A thousandfold.
It’s why I am ecstatic every year when Hair Fair occurs. Not because we love hair (we do). But because it’s about something bigger and more important than our hair do’s and blogger selves.
I want to thank Sasy Scarborough and her amazing team for once again putting on an event to be proud of, an event that speaks to us all and shows us that real beauty is more than the sum of our parts.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.

There are two ladies that write for this blog who spent their childhoods with their long hair braided and wrapped around their heads. Their mothers would wrap their hair so tightly, that it would stay in place days if it needed to. I was one of those girls. I will give you a hint, the other one is a red head. Continue reading →
I kind of feel like my mom back in the 80s in this outfit. She used to tie her hair up with a bandana and throw on a romper like this made of beach towel and clean like mofo. Actually, come to think of it, she still does this at the age of 65. Go mom you saucy minx!
Logo hair falls into the category of “Brand I forgot I liked”. Which is exactly another reason why I love Hair Fair, because it’s impossible to remember every brand but getting refreshed that you like something brings them back to the front of your shopping mind. Continue reading →
Cajsa IMd me and said she knew I was going to love the hair at Hair Fair from Curious Kitties especially with all the crazy options on the HUD. She was right, I was in a dither playing but decided to show you this traditional up do with a modern flair right out of the box, because it’s my favorite color of green. Continue reading →
One of my goals every year at Hair Fair is to find a new to me creator, and fall in love. This has happened every year without fail, and this year I found that it was GOTZSCHE that is in the running as one of my new loves, even though I’ve only complete two sims so far.
In a little modest booth with 3-4 styles, this little shop might be easy to pass by but I recommend you don’t. I have a very strict routine at Hair Fair, I go into EVERY SINGLE BOOTH. Unless the sky parts and I scream KILL IT WITH FIRE I tend to demo something from every place. Normally I do this on blogger day, but I was having surgery that day this year, so it’s taking me a wee bit longer to get through.
Their style that grabbed at me at GOTZSCHE though – was named after one of the looming ghosts from my childhood – VONDA. Continue reading →
After a lot of wandering, lots of unpacking, even more sorting, tremendous generosity from creators and far too much spending, I have shot a large sampling of the updos available at Hair Fair. If you want to check specific photos, you can click through to the Flickr set.

First I just wanted to say to Ryker Beck, how dare you stop making skins, I mean seriously lady! What were you thinking?!
Now that I have that off my chest let’s continue. I stayed up until 4am shopping at the hair fair last night. It was amazeballs, the lag wasn’t horrible and I made it to every store. I bought about 8 or 9 different hairs and I wanted to show some of my favs!

Hair Fair 2012 is rolling up on us all and fashionistas across the grid have begun their annual flail of joy.
Hair Fair will run July 14th thru July 29th and is a benefit for Wigs for Kids.
I am rolling out my Hair Fair love this year with the new release from MINA which is going to be a favorite with bloggers everywhere because it’s perfect for showing off your earrings. It’s also got a HUD for coloring and highlights which makes me smile in a sort of a mad scientist way.
You can join the Hair Fair Demo’s group so that you can try everything on BEFORE you get to the event, which reduces all the lag and stuff for everyone! Click HERE to join.
