Hair Fair 2015: Directory, SLURLs, and a Preview (Oh My!)

Posted on Updated on

Welcome to the weekend, lovelies! If you’re anything like me, you may have stayed up all night opening Hair Fair 2015 demo boxes, and making notes of the styles that you’re interested in purchasing. You may have also been sneaking peeks on Flickr at previews from your favorite designers, or stalking blogger and photographer submissions to the official Hair Fair Photo Pool. The buzz is infectious! And I’m excited to bring you another sneak peek from YUKO Hair, who offers three fabulous styles and a completely free special color HUD for your hair wearin’ pleasure!

YUKO is a new-to-me brand that I’m delighted to have discovered, as Raine Juneberry’s mini collection mixes vintage-inspired styles with edgy cuts for a true range of possibilities. The high, blunt-cut bangs on the Yelyah style call to mind what a cool, fashion-forward fashionista might wear, while Kandy comes with two bangs options: blunt and delightfully pointed, which gives the hair an extra vixen-vibe. My favorite is Wavy, which is a perfectly draped siren style that reminds me of my RL hair, but kicked up an extra notch into glam territory. There are 7 unique color HUDs (with and without roots options) to choose from, and as a free gift YUKO offers Kandy with a special hair flower and the Rainbow I HUD, which includes this fabulous teal shade that I just adore.

The Hair Fair 2015 guide and directory is provided below, and the event coordinators have recommended that visitors follow the path, keeping the stores on your left side, to ensure that you visit every designer’s booth without missing any. They have also graciously opened two additional sims for the first few days, which people can teleport to and use as a gateway into the Hair Fair sims, or simply “camera shop” if the sims are too full. These gateway points are:

Also, don’t forget that everyone has the opportunity to join the Hair Fair Demo Group, which will allow you to try out a majority of the event-exclusive hairstyles in advance! Demos that have been previously sent out may be found in the Notices tab of the group panel. To join, copy the following line and paste it into the Local Chat box of your viewer, then press Enter:

      So very welcome, Leesee! I’ve yet to brave it myself; *finally* finished opening up all those amazing demos, and now to plan my shopping attack. Hair Fair shopping is serious business! :D Have a wonderful time! ♥

        Haha I don’t have any demo’s yet >.< my poor Aussie internet wouldn't be able to handle going and getting them when it's busy either lol I look forward to reading more posts on hair fair so I can make my shopping experience as pain free as possible! ♥

          I keep hearing about how terrible Aussie Internet is; that makes my heart ache for my down under friends, because you already have the trouble of being sooooooo far ahead of SLT (18 hours, I think?) and being so far away from SL’s servers. You should have blazing speeds just to make up for those travesties!

          On a completely off-topic note, every time I meet someone from Australia, I start gushing about how much I love MasterChef Australia, so be forewarned! And if you watch it too, no spoilers please – I’m at least a week or two behind! ^_^ ♥

            Hahaha I don’t watch masterchef so you’ll get no spoilers from me! My internet is beyond dismal, sometimes I get below 1mbps. I laugh when people say that they have slow speeds anywhere else lol

              Below 1mbsp?! That’s like Internet Stone Age speeds! You and your fellow patient Australians deserve all of the cookies AND high-speed wi-fi! ♥

    I’m ashamed to admit that I was lazy (in terms of The Hair Fair this year) and decided to let everybody else try on demos so I could leap in and buy the nicest ones, thanks Ever for contributing to that goal xx

      Hahaha, Meri! I’m not sure if you’re a cheeky thing or you’re absolutely brilliant, because OH MY STARS did that marathon take forever to complete. So many demos!!

      That said, I’m sure there are some brands who didn’t get around to sending them out to the group, so I’ll still be wandering around at the fair in a stupefied daze. (Probably why it would be smart to use the full body alpha trick, because I’m so tired and demo’ed out that I’ll literally be bumping into walls and accidentally groping people’s mesh body parts at this point.) Can’t wait to see which ones you end up with! ♥
