Hair thoughts

I have blogs in my head to do. Cen and I took some pictures for a "project" yesterday. But I'm not feeling up to it right now. So I'm sitting here munching on cold pizza, watching Plurk, and scowling at the outdoors for being wet and yucky.

I do have a topic to talk about today. Hair. Why is it so hard for most designers to make a great blonde shade? ETD did it. Heck, she did in several awesome shades of blonde. I like the platinum blonde shade at Magika too. But there are some places where I LOVE the hair, like at Zero Style, but the blonde shade is so horrible on me, I can never buy any of the hair.

Also, why is it so hard to find a great ponytail? Yeah yeah, I'm still hunting. LOL I have a different ponytail idea in my head this time around but I have never seen one like it in SL.

I'm also getting pissed off at resizer scripts in hair. I NEED mod rights, ok? I NEED to be able to move the prims around here or there to make room for sunglasses or eyelashes or to get a lock of hair out of my neck.

But Hair Fair is coming up, and I'm very excited to get a chance to check out hair designers that I may not know about, or may have forgotten about. Plus I hear that freebies & dollarbies are being encouraged, so this will be great!! I'm not really a big fan of Locks of Love, the organization that the fair is supposedly raising money for. I did some research on them a few years ago when I was considering donating my hair and I'm not exactly a fan. I think Pantene Beautiful Lengths is more worthy an organization. But it's not going to stop me from going to the Hair Fair and checking it out. :)

Tell me more about the great ponytail. Pics?

Well, it's mostly based on my RL hair. A messy ponytail that started out being a high ponytail that was not too loose, but I slept in it and now it's still high, but kind of to the side and a bit looser, but messier with little tendrils of hair falling all over.

I've never seen one like it in SL, or even a high side ponytail at all.

Tickled Pink has a high side wavy ponytail. It's currently on sale for 50L for the whole fatpack. Darn, I don't have pictures, and I've logged out, so I don't have the LM or SURL either. Remind me about it, Ali :)

I like Truth's blonde textures as well as the ETD ones ^^

I agree it's hard to find the colors of blonde that I prefer. I really like Armidi's blonde and Maitreya's blonde. I like their hair textures too. I wish they would design more styles.

I am not a fan of hair I can't mod either. Especially when resizing to avoid bald spots means that the hair looks huge, I *need* to be able to move pieces around.
