What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you?
I am a woman … so how is a woman ? Never has enough clothes … enough shoes …. and enough Hair. Because once in 2014, I needed badly a hairstyle that I could not find back then in SL, I have decided to make it myself since I have experience in RL with 3D programs. That hairstyle is a retro one … never was for sale in mainstore and never will be, is just for myself 😛
How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you?
enVOGUE is a french expression for something trendy, fashion and elegant. I always like to check real life hairstyles and sometimes I request ideas from costumers to help me create something they want. So it has a special meaning for me because it shows how much I care for what people believe that are good haircuts to come from RL fashion catwalks and magazines to SL streets
What sets your hair styles apart from other hair designers, in your opinion? What is your style or aesthetic?
I believe that all the attention to every detail when I model the hair and the realism of the hair textures define my work. My style is based primarily in retro and classic styles.
Where do you get inspiration for your designs? What is your process like?
This thing with inspiration come and go depends of the day I have 🙂 … sometimes I get inspired from pictures that i find on internet or lately I started to ask my Facebook friends to give me references because what they want is important for me. But mostly what happens is that i start to model starting from a reference picture and then ideas start to come and I just follow them.
What is the most challenging part of being a creator in Second Life? What is most rewarding?
In my opinion most challenging part is to not disappoint myself or my customers, that’s why I try to offer the best Quality in modeling, rigging and texturing the hairs. Most rewarming for me are not the money that i make by selling my hairstyles, just the IM’s and the marketplace reviews from my happy costumers. To be honest I love it when i see that they are happy wearing enVOGUE hairstyles.
How has your Second Life changed your first life?
Every time I model a hairstyle is relaxing me and I love that feeling. And because for me is very important to have a good mood in RL and because I wanted to create what I want and when I want and also because I wanted to focus only on mainstore releases , I decided that from this year to quit from all events except Hair Fair.
What’s the craziest, silliest thing you did in SL?
Some time ago in 2015, I had to make a custom hair for a lady that was participating at the well known Miss Virtual World and she was representing Miss Spain. Because she wanted to bring a tribute to torero with her outfit she needed an updo with horns. yes you have read right with horns 🙂 . Of course I have made her the hairstyle after the picture that she provided but in mainstore arrived only the updo without horns :)) … I thought no one would buy them.
What does Hair Fair mean to you?
Hair Fair is the event where enVOGUE hairstyles show up in second life for the 1st time in 2014, so is a very special event for me and the most important for Hair designers in my opinion.
