Hair Fair 2018

Hair Fair 2018

Hair Fair 2018 will be open to the public from September 22nd till October 7th. All items sold at this event donate a minimum of 15% to Wigs for Kids. There are also kiosks for direct donations and Bandana Booths that donate 100% of all purchases.

There is a Hair Fair DEMO group, which you can join for free, and check notices for DEMOs from the creators participating in the event. This way you can try the DEMOs in the comfort of your home, make your shopping list, and then head over to the fair for a quicker shopping spree.

There are around 80 creators participating and each have done at least two new releases. For a full list of creators and a picture of their releases exclusive to this event, click over to the Hair Fair blog post.

The event is spread out on four sims: Brunette, Noirette, Redhead and Blonde. Here is a map of the event, which you can find on the Hair Fair website. (Click here for larger sized map) If you follow the paths of Hair Fair you will visit each store on every sim, so start in one direction and you will end up where you started.

I’m going to try and do a quick video tour of tonight, you can watch it live on my YouTube channel:
