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!

A full list of brands appearing at the Hair Fair 2015 is as follows; however please note that the sims have landing points, so these SLURLs will get you within range of the store and provide a beacon to the exact location, rather than teleporting you directly to the booth.
