The fabulous adornments in the Exile pieces can be removed, allowing you to wear the hair plain if you like. There were a few hairs I tinted a bit as their red was too bright for me. The other sets are A to Z, but I decided a Z to A might be a good option – just to be fair in case folks get tired before the end of the slide show.
