Hair Fair 2019

The Hair Fair is back in Second Life. On Saturday August 17, the fundraiser began as the six sims were open, three of them full of shopping areas full of hairpieces for men and women avatars. The event is to raise funds for the "Wigs for Kids" charity.

Hair Fair is now open to the public, three regions covered with styles by creators from all over Second Life. Every purchase at Hair Fair donates a percentage to Wigs for Kids. Bandana booths and Donation kiosks donate 100%. 

There is a Demo group where you can try the styles at home before venturing to the event. secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about  copy paste to chat to join

This year as well as hairstylists we have a selection of accessory creators that have also made items to adorn your hair purchases. It is a wonderful combination of items for the hair enthusiasts of SL.

So come and do your part to help those that are giving so generously of their time, and creativity to this cause and to further show Second Life what a wonderful community of creators they are.

Getting to the area, the three sims with shopping areas were packed. Fortunately, there are three "cam sim" just north of them. People can look at the selection from the sims while they can't enter, or just simply look from afar before going in.

As the announcement states, the Hair Fair has a variety of hairpieces. This includes Bento animated hair that is advertised to move with the wearer, and hair that can be adjusted for head and breast sizes. Some hair was for ethnic avatars. While a few kiosks advertised their product as 100% of the money going to charity, 15% to 25% was a more common amount.

Wigs for Kids is a charity that "for over thirty years ... has been providing Hair Replacement Systems and support for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, ... burns and other medical issues at no cost to children or their families."

The event is scheduled to go on until September 1
