Today’s style is from Elika Tiramisu Designs.
The Razored style is a short, straight style that falls just above the shoulders. The hair is layered into chunky pieces with razor cut ends. The bangs fall both into the eyes and around the face. I was not fond of this particular style. I know this is one of Laynie’s favorites but I find it a bit too messy for my tastes. It seems as much as I love the textures from ETD I cannot find a style that sits well with me yet.

Au Naturel is a shop that I discovered while hunting for hair landmarks for the landmark box. This shop offers more than hair with skins, costumes, boots, jeans, and more.
The Braid style, aptly named, is a long thick braid that falls down to the middle of the back from the crown. The braid is held in place with white hair ties. The neckline is neat and clean. The face is framed with long, wedgie bangs that are in place to try and hide an extra long hairline. The hairline is the only part of this style I hated. It is hard to love a style when you have that hairline extending past the root of the bangs. Other than that I loved the style with the braid thickness reminding me of my Barbie’s hair and the textures were very well done.
The Braid style costs L$85 per color and the demos are free. The colors include: ash blonde, berry, black, blood red, brunette, copper, dark brown, platinum, red, and warm brown.

Jolie Femme is a small shop with hair, skins, and apparel for women only.
The Curly Bang Updo style is a simple updo with the hair piled high on the head and scattered tendrils slipping out. The face is edged with a sprig of curled bangs. Sounds nice. Right? Wrong. This style has so much wrong with it I am not sure where to start. The texture looks like a bale of hay more coarse than anything else. The style is poorly put together that no amount of position, stretching, and rotating could make it sit nicely on the head. Both the hairline and neckline are choppy which does not make for a nice hairstyle.
The Curly Bang Updo style costs L$124 for a full color pack, L$39 per color and the demos are L$1. The colors included are: strawberry, irish red, honey blonde, golden blonde, copper, brunette, auburn.

Today’s style is from Panache Hair.
The Flexi Frenchies style is two long, French-braided ponytails that fall down the back just past the bum. The French braids starts just past the hairline, ending at the neckline and continue down the back as ponytails. The face is framed with angled wedge-bangs that is parts just left of center. The textures as well down with the highlights looking clean and smooth.
