Updated: August 4, 2008 – This store is now closed.
Tangles! is a brand new hair store with a very familiar feel. *winks* Okay, so she could not stay away for very long. Sarabi missed all the hair-love we give her. I was torn what to review because I noticed a style that happens to be my namesake. However, I thought it would be best to review her new freebie called Hope.
The Hope style is a loosely held ponytail that falls from the crown of the head to the middle of the back. The face is frame with long, angled chunks that taper gradually to the jawline and then fall down the front of the shoulders. The texture on this teal texture is well down with soft highlights. This hairstyle is too cute to pass up considering the price tag, free.
The Hope style comes in a single menu driven wig that costs L$50 and the demos are free. The menu system works with 12 base textures (black, blonde, blue, brown, gray, green, orange, pink, red, violet, white and yellow) with 66 different tints to create 729 hair shades to select from the menu.

Today’s style is from Hairapy.
The Fallon style is a medium, straight style that falls just to the shoulder blades. There are a few tousled wisps at the ends that give the style a wind blown look. The face is framed by long chunking pieces that part on the left and fall past the jawline. This style is great for everyday wear or formal wear. This particular texture jumped out at me because of the natural blending of the light color to the darker tips.
The Fallon style costs $1349L for a 13-color fat pack, $248L for a 2-color pack, $149L for solo colors, and the demos cost $1L. The colors included are: beach blonde, toasted blonde, dirty blonde, natural blonde, honey brown, light brown, golden brown, chestnut brown, copper, natural red, auburn brown, deep red, chocolate brown, black.

Today’s style is from Calico Creations.
The Ember III style is long, curly hair that falls just past the shoulders. The face is framed with long, chunky pieces that come just to the jawline. This hair has quite a bit of flexi to it so I chose the shorter of the 3 Ember styles for my needs. the other two Ember styles are similar except Ember I goes to the ankles and Ember II goes to the top of the thighs. All three Ember styles have that tousled, just-got-out-of-bed look to them.
The Ember styles cost L$2000 for a full color pack, L$200 4-color pack, and the demos are free. The colors available are: blood(blood, blushed blood, frosted blood, obsidian blood), fire(fire, flaming fire, frosted fire, obsidian fire), sunset(sunset, flaming sunset, frosted sunset, obsidian sunset), copper(copper, flaming copper, frosted copper, obsidian copper), sunkissed(sunkissed, flaming sunkissed, frosted sunkissed, obsidian sunkissed), golden(golden, flaming golden, frosted golden, obsidian golden), dirty blonde(dirty blonde, flaming dirty blonde, frosted dirty blonde, obsidian dirty blonde), tanned(tanned, flaming tanned, frosted tanned, obsidian tanned), bronzed(bronzed, flaming bronzed, frosted bronze, obsidian bronzed), dark brown(dark brown, flaming dark brown, frosted dark brown, obsidian dark brown), midnight(midnight, flaming midnight, frosted midnight, sterling midnight), raven(raven, flaming raven, frosted raven, obsidian raven), silver(silver, flaming silver, frosted silver, obsidian silver), steel(steel, flaming steel, frosted steel, obsidian steel), ivory(ivory, flaming ivory, obsidian ivory, sterling ivory), true blue(true blue, flaming true blue, frosted true blue, obsidian true blue), sea(sea, flaming sea, frosted sea, obsidian sea), violet(violet, flaming violet, frosted violet, obsidian violet), hot pink(hot pink, flaming hot pink, frosted hot pink, obsidian hot pink), olive(olive, flaming olive, frosted olive, obsidian olive).

Sinsation is celebrating the opening of their joint venture island, Hairspray with Mirada. There is a freebie hut that sells dollarbies. There are don’t miss deals to be had including this cute 50s style to match the island’s theme from Sinsation.
The Maryanne style is a short, straight style that falls just past the neckline and curl out, up and back in to form a perfect curl completely around the head from ear to ear. There is a straight cut bang that crossed the brow with a slight curl under. The rest of the hair is held back from the face with a leopard print ribbon. The entire style, including the bow on the ribbon, is well sculpted and suits the new island’s 50s them rather well. Pair this style with Vanessa from LaynieWear and you will look like you stepped out of the pages of Cosmopolitan 1955.
