Hair Today

booN "KRC02" in Jet Black, front and back

booN "BON75" Black

Aden "Suri" in Black

TekuTeku 1L Hair, no style name

Lorna Lubitsch convinced me to buy some more short black hair (which was also a request from Vidal) so I spent a little time yesterday going from shop to shop with Lorna and trying on demos. Lorna has an excellent eye for what would look good on me so the trip was as fruitful as it was pleasant.

boonN's KRC02 amazes me. Not so much for the front, which is flattering and well done, but for the back, which might have the best texture I've seen for straight black hair--it's glossy and full and beautifully shaped. This is the one for sleek and slinky fashions. I wonder how many people have printed an SL picture, taken it to their stylist and said, "I want this!" Well, this is the one that is going to tempt me to do just that.

booN's BON75 is not for the faint of heart: it clocks in at 213 prims which is enough to stop a small sim dead in its tracks. But shouldn't everyone drop what they're doing and look at how hot you are anyway? If you've got a Robert Smith fetish but want people to be able to still see your eyes (or if you think Billie Joe Armstrong should grow his hair out a little), this just might be perfect for you.

I'm not sure what to say about Aden's "Suri" other than it would likely really annoy Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise if their daughter came home with a hairstyle like this, so I suppose this is the perfect "Young lady, you're not leaving the house like *that*!" style. (Dot Lane waves to her own mother and apologizes for a certain haircut she had at age 15).

Finally, for those of you who are feeling light in the pocketbook, TekuTeku has a 1L short black hairstyle that is a perfect starter for those of you who don't think you can wear short black hair. If you follow the link, it's in a box on the counter in the middle back of the store. But once you've felt the power of a hairstyle like this, especially when paired with a skin like Fleur's Vivant Biba, you're going to want more. The first one is always free, isn't it?
