Today’s style is from RaC.
The Camellia style is two messy buns sitting on either side of the head with strands of head streaming out of the buns. Each bun is held in place with a black ribbon knotted into a bow at the back. There are straight cut fringe bangs across the brown and the hair going back to the buns is parted in the middle. I felt that the buns of this style could have been done better especially the shaping. The bangs are done well and the smoothed back parts on the scalp area are as well. Given the RaC name, I would expect the same care given to their skins to be given to the hair but this is not the case.
The Camellia style costs $250L per color and the demos are $1L. The colors include: black, dark brown, mahogany, ash brown, golden brown, light brown, sunkissed, red, copper, strawberry, golden blonde, ash blonde, honey blonde, platinum, silver.

Today’s style is from Tousled.
The Sweet Pea are two ponytails pulled back just below the crown and hanging down the back of the head to brush the shoulder blades. The ponies are held in place with white hair bands and the hair is pin straight. The bangs in the front are on of the best Bettie bangs that I have seen with the being he perfect roundness without looking like a circle or leaving bald patches on the sides. This is one of my all time favorite styles. Someone told me that Haedon rocked the ponies when she made this one but I think she rocked those bangs more.
The Sweet Pea style costs $1800L for a fat pack, $200L per 5-color tipped packs, $200L per 12-color tipped packs, $150L per 3-color packs, and the demos are free. The colors include: amethyst, amethyst_blacktip, amethyst_whitetip, darkash_blondetip, darkblonde, darkblonde_blacktip, darkblonde_whitetip, darkbrown, darkbrown_blacktip, darkbrown_whitetip, darkgray, darkgray_blacktip, darkgray_whitetip, darkgreen, darkgreen_blacktip, darkgreen_whitetip, goldenblonde, goldenblonde_blacktip, goldenblonde_whitetip, goldenred1, goldenred1_blacktip, goldenred1_whitetip, grape, grape_blacktip, grape_whitetip, grass, grass_blacktip, grass_whitetip, gray, gray_blacktip, gray_whitetip, green, green_blacktip, green_whitetip, lightbrown, lightbrown_blacktip, lightbrown_whitetip, lightpink, lightpink_blacktip, lightpink_whitetip, lilac, lilac_blacktip, lilac_whitetip, mahogany, mahogany_blacktip, mahogany_whitetip, mediumblonde, mediumblonde_blacktip, mediumblonde_whitetip, midnight, midnight_blacktip, midnight_whitetip, onyx, onyx_blacktip, onyx_whitetip, orangyred, orangyred_blacktip, orangyred_whitetip, pink, pink_blacktip, pink_whitetip, purple, purple_blacktip, purple_whitetip, rainbowblonde_bluetip, rainbowblonde_clovertip, rainbowblonde_mahogany, rainbowblonde_pinktip, rainbowblonde_purpletip, red, red_blacktip, red__whitetip, wheat, wheat_blacktip, wheat_whitetip, white, white_blacktip, white_darkgraytip, whitetip_blue, whitetip_green, whitetip_pink, whitetip_purple, whitetip_red.

Today’s style is from Curl Up and Dye.
The Princess Leia Slave style is a perfect replica of Princess Leia’s braid from the Jabba scenes in Return of the Jedi. It is a long braid that has been wrapped several times at the crown to form a braided bun and then falls down the back right side to the waist. The front of the style is pulled smoothly back into the crown with a few wisps of hair falling just in front of the ears. There is a separate helm with intricate design of leaves and berries that can be worn when you are feeling like Leia or not at all when you want to wear this braid for regular use. Having the Princess Leia hair I had to go all out and buy the Prim Couture Princess Leia costume to go with this. The entire ensemble is a Sci-Fi geek’s best dream.
The Princess Leia Slave style costs $1500L for a fat pack, $300L per color and the demos are $1L. The colors included are: Black Shades(black, deep black, blue black, silver, white), Brown Shades(brown, brownred, red, ahsbrown), Red Shades(sunset, auburn, wine, wild orchid), Blonde Shades(blonde, platinum, ash blonde, sand, honey blonde), Anime Colors(blue, dk pink, green, pink, purple, bred).

Today’s style is from Fashionably Dead.
The Poof Poof style is a low bun style with a zigzag part down the back of the head with a few tendrils brushing down the neck. The buns themselves sit low behind the ears and are perfect ball shapes with wisps of hair spill out. The hair in front is parted left of center with a duo-barrette holding the hair back on the right side. The front of this style is extremely cute but as with the other style reviewed from this shop there is not demos to test how it will look on your avatar.
The Poof Poof style costs $350L for the fat pack of 8 colors and there are no demos. The colors include: black, blonde, blonde charcoal, burgundy, brunette, carrot top, charcoal blonde(shown), platinum.

Today’s style is from Bewitched.
The Carter style is a long, curly style that falls down the small of the back. The top of the style is straight at the crown with a braid coming from left to right near the hairline. There are separate prim bangs that fall around the jawline, to the cheekbone, and to the bridge of the nose in straight chunky pieces. These bangs are color changing by just clicking on them so if you are in the mood for a but more funk to your style you can go with any color bangs you wish. I am so a bit partial to black, can you tell? I have one thing I want to say about the curly texture at Bewitched. This texture is one of the more unique textures on the game which is very similar to branding for hair shops. You can identify this hair anywhere just on the curls alone and that recognizability is important for any business.
The Carter style costs $1300L for a 29-color everything pack, $195L for a 4-color or 6-color pack, and the demos are $1L. The colors include: subdued(auburn, blonde, nugget, sunny), ribbon(bell, candy, fuchia, straw), iced(faded, light blue, silver, sky), hawt(mahogany, mesquite, natural red, strawberry), anime(candy apple, light purple, melon, sea), smackers(bell, candy apple, dark brown, strawberry), naturals(natural red, brown, blonde, black), in your face(dark purple, dark blue, pink, green), bewitched favs(black, gold, medium blue, medium purple), and customer favs(black, blonde, candy apple, gold, natural red, strawberry).
