A Summer Classic

The title of this post is a bit ironic, considering I am sitting in front of my computer in layers of clothes, trying to stay warm as the temperature hovers slightly above freezing. Although it is winter in Australia, Hair Fair 2017 is a Second Life summer classic that you can’t miss. If you click the link in the previous sentence, you will go directly to an incredible post that gives you not only a map of the fair, but also previews of the designs available, along with SLurls directly to the stores. After the cut below, I have a list of the store SLurls, but I certainly can’t match the work on the Hair Fair blog. It is an incredibly detailed post, but by viewing the images, you can easily work out your plan of attack. Once you are there, your navigation is simplified by colour-coded shutters on the buildings and guys, you can easily identify the shops with male styles by the hovering ♂ symbol above the store.

The hair I am featuring is from [DUE] at Hair Fair 2017 and is one of a huge number of short, flirty styles available this year. The fringe (bangs, wisps) are a separate attachment, so you actually have two hairstyles in one. It is a perfect summer hairstyle with a carefree look, and one of my personal favourites.

I have teamed it with two summer classics from Just *BECAUSE*: the shorts, which are now out at FaMESHed and the tube top that is still available at Collabor88. The shorts come in both a lace and solid version, so it’s a great two-for-one purchase. The tube top is nostalgic yet contemporary and a great, versatile piece for your wardrobe.

Make sure you check out the credits below to find all the details on some amazing summer classics.

  1. Love short styles too. I took the gift hair (Halie) from Mina and went to shop to get it in my colour but sadly didnt find it. Still the deep red looks good on me. Love your shorts too, sexy butt “)

  2. So cold, so so cold, we are not made for this cold……I have been awake around the clock all week and it just got colder. Mel laughed at me for wearing layers in SL just to trick myself into thinking I was warmer. Thank you for the great post on Hair Fair ♥

    1. lol I have tried that method, along with reverse psychology by wearing summer stuff. I have come to the conclusion that nothing works! I have resorted to wearing my cat as an accessory, but she prefers to sit in front of the heater, stealing my warm 😦
      Thanks for all you do to bring this event to life, Sasy ❤ It's my pleasure to publicise it as much as I can 🙂

  3. I’d forgotten that Oz would be in the middle of winter now, Peep! It must be very strange to do summer photos for you, I mean at least we’ve got good weather here in the English Channel near France *laughs* Thank you very much for all the landmarks ❤

    1. Coming from the US, it’s even stranger doing winter in summer! My poor fingers are frozen lol

      You’re welcome for the landmarks, but to be honest, I only copy/pasted them from a notecard given in the group. Sasy, Whimsy and the whole Hair Fair committee do an awesome job, and help make it easy for us bloggers 🙂
