Happy Anniversary Hairology

Hiya everyone! The current round of Hairology is underway, and they have been bringing us fantastic hairstyles from across the grid for a full year now. They are celebrating with some lovely gifts from many of the designers in addition to their usual assortment of exclusive offerings. Tonight I am showing you just a sample of the gifts you will find there, it was a lot of fun putting together these looks from among so many generous beauties.

This first adorable gift is from RunAway, called [RA] Jade Hair in Essentials. It includes a HUD with 6 color options, two of which are shown above. The colors are an assortment of natural, traditional tones that provide a nice range.

If you have done much hair shopping around the grid, chances are you're familiar with Alice Project, who have been designing really fun hair for many years. This is one of the two gifts they have waiting for you at Hairology, called Kelly - Winter Compilation. The hair itself comes in the version shown along with a bangless option, 4 sizes for each, and the HUD allows you to choose from among 30 different looks. This breaks down to 5 base colors, each with 6 different seasonal streaks so you can play around with that HUD to change your hair to whatever suits your mood or your outfit of the day.

You probably guessed as soon as you spotted the playful ribbons of color in this hair, that it is the other gift from Alice Project, well you'd be right :) This is Nicki II - Winter Compilation and it comes in the same 4 sizes and with the same terrific HUD of 30 holiday combinations (5 basic colors, 6 variations per color). I refuse to wait until Christmas to sport the awesome candy cane highlights you see on the left, and the wintry blue streaks on the right team up so well with the icy white blonde shade.

Maybe you're still feeling playful, but not in a specific winter mood...this next gift reminded me more of Easter. Our exclusive gift from Beusy is their Renegade Hair with Ears, and as you can tell those ears are a separate add-on so you can wear the hair alone or with the satin-lined addition. The gift also includes a color HUD with an impressive 48 options, solids and ombres and fades abound on this lovely HUD. 

One last glimpse for the evening, this is Mithral's anniversary gift for all Hairology visitors called Bezoar in Variety. There is a HUD included with 30 different choices for your sleek new hairdo, some gentle fades as well as delightful solid shades.

My outfit tonight is a Marketplace find from {H}, a free gift from October that includes system layers and HUDs for Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya. The outfit consists of sexy black pants topped with a semi-transparent shirt emblazoned with CHILL in gold to match the shiny belt buckle. I feel like Chill is a great motto for the weekend, hope you agree :) It did get a lot cooler here in RL though so it could be taken literally, but I prefer the relaxed state of mind.

Friday was very hectic and I had a hard time staying logged into SL, so I spent plenty of time with my family and my houseguest yesterday and today. We have some things prepared for the upcoming holiday with more planning yet to do, and tomorrow we are making some awesome nachos with several cheeses, shredded rotisserie chicken, refried beans, locally handmade tortilla chips and pico de gallo (same great place made those both) and plenty of sour cream. It's comfort food meets party food, with healthy options wherever possible (the beans are Amy's organic, cheese and sour cream are hormone/antibiotic free, etc) and everyone will have fun piling the toppings on their own tray. Some will watch football, others random movies (I'm in that category) and many faces will be stuffed ;) Sometimes we have to find our own simple joys when the world seems overwhelming.

Hoping you are all having a wonderful weekend, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
