Hair in Second Life has come a long way since Washu first developed prim hair. This evolution has gone from prim hair to flexis, sculpts and combinations thereof. Over a year ago, we first started seeing hair bases with attachments, usually a bun, ponytail and perhaps an updo in blonde and black, but still limited in variety and color. With the 2.0 tattoo layer we saw a new innovation, the hair base on the tattoo layer with attachments best illustrated by Monica Outlander’s creations for MiaMai which I will highlight tomorrow. Today, I will stay with the skin plus hair base innovation and its tremendous expansion with the release of Baiastice’s new Pulchra skin by Sissy Pessoa.  It’s not just that she also includes brunettes and redheads, but it’s the great variety of hair styles she has produced to work with her hair bases. So many, in fact, that I made a slide show to show them all to you.

Wanting something simple so the focus was on the hair, I wore this Sunset Boulevard Mini from Armidi Gisaci and Bare Tsa Tsa sandals from Stiletto Moody.  I have heard people say that they have a hard time matching the skin. I don’t, but I do have one trick that might help. I zoom in as close as possible and then use ctl-0 to zoom even closer so that the only thing on my screen is the leg and foot so that nothing else influences my perception of the tints and shades. The jewelry is from Je Suis, the Je Suis Mysterious set. I think the store name is clever – allowing for all sorts of delightful sentences/names and love that it’s color scripted giving me a bundle of fun color options.

    Squeee!!! I saw the slide show and I really hope that Baiastice sell the hairbases separate on tattoo layer!

    What I would like to see is Hair Designers run with this concept as well if it’s possible. It would be nice to be able to do a look like you are featuring here with a variety of skins. Maybe someone will take on that challenge, WEEEEEEEEE!
