Updos

What is more elusive than the perfect updo? Maybe it comes from having hair in RL that refuses absolutely to do anything resembling chic, but I am constantly on the lookout for stylish hair that is both pinned up and realistic-looking. Siddean Munro and Harry Hyx have proven that they are up to the task, and if this heat wave where I live continues I may be wearing them for some time.

 

I am absolutely in love with Harry Hyx’s hair textures. No smoothing or softening needed, they are perfect as-is.

Siddean Munro brings her classic style and combines it with old-world charm in her new style, Constance.

I’m gonna say it, it made me feel a little Halloweeny when I first saw it, but a walk through Fashion For Life 2013 soon helped me get away from the ghost and goblin ideas.

Almost everything I am wearing today is from Fashion For Life. As usual, it’s an event that everyone should attend, even if you are not into fashion. So far my favorite build has been the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and if you haven’t done so make sure you take a minute to go all the way up to the top of the build to see the hidden garden. Beautiful.
