Just like a bad smell, I’m still lingering lol.

As you can see from Faiths post she’s heading off to Hozzie and it’s not for a nice little “nip & tuck” but it is something that when it’s over she can start healing her way back to a healthy life so as much as we’re both dreading it, it will be lovely to see my BFF back to her old self.

Not starting the week off with a freebie but with a wet sexy wet look.

I hate repeating myself esp as I know we have such reg readers that you will have heard it all before so if that’s you then skip all of this bit and just check out the LM’s.

This hair is “Rachel” and she like all of the Mina “wet/dry” hairs is interactive. So this hair gets wet when you enter into SL water, you can then use the hud to set the drying time, the water droplets and because the wet look has proven to be so popular then all of Mina’s hairs now come with the permanently wet look.

Now here is where I should be showing you this hair in its dry form and I’ve lost the picture! I’ve looked in all my folders, media library, google photos and even my recycle bin and nope. So what I will do is wear Rachel in my next post, hopefully, teamed up with a freebie, so you can see the dry version which because it’s a new Mina comes with that finer hair strand and hair colour palettes.

If you do like a wet hair look then there are now I believe including this new one 5 “interactive wet hairs”. The demo for Rachel is in the reception area, where there is also a shower so you can do a full test of the hair. To find the other interactive hairs just look for the other shower as they’re next to that PLUS one of the hairs which is the first one Mina brought out has a lovely little extra in that you can if you want to use the hand held hair dryer to dry your hair.

This is only available at Uber, which has literally just started so I will assume it’s busy. I’m going to put the link, as usual, to Mina’s main shop, Uber and also the link to the Seraphim blog as they have a picture of everything for sale.

Casey & Adanna. (New Mina Hair@The Hair Fair & Mention of Bumblebee New Lucky Board Prizes).

This is “Casey”. As soon as I saw the picture of this hat/hair and the patterns/texture you get I did a little RL squeak.

Mina has an AMAZING range of hat/hairs, so much so that yes as aways before you buy this one make sure to check out Tarja, Hazel, Rose Marie and if you’re into horse riding then Ankie is a horse riding helmet. There are other hat/hairs but these are the ones which have a similar “feel” to them but each of these hairs come with their own unique touches/colour palettes/style huds etc etc.

In this case Casey come with the “usual” massive hud of colours for the hair and a 9 colour pattern option for the hat and wow and it was the 2 retro patterns that made me squeak and they have not disapointed.

This one has such a realistic leather look/sheen to it. I’m also feeling pretty smug I managed to take a decent side shot as well lol.

The other hair for sale at the The Hair Fair is called Adanna and is a stunning afro with a head scarf. My pale/freckled skin just doesn’t do these hairs the justice they deserve. Adanna is not the only Afro hair as well. I can’t remember the name of the other one, and there is a full on braid hair which is based very much on the “Michonne” character out of The Walking Dead TV series. Again stunning just not on me lol.

As usual the demo’s are out in Mina’s shop and again remember to check out the other hat/hairs before you TP to the Hair Fair event.

PS. The blouse I’m wearing is/is not a freebie. Bumblebee is one of my fav shops and I suspect that since it’s now gotten very busy that the shoes, boots and the same top as I’m wearing a new to the Lucky Boards. I bought this one as I wanted the orange colour but if you have time to kill then there is a pink or black one as prizes plus of course some excellent jeans, tops, bodysuits etc in those lucky boards and all you need is a little time and patience.

Not Free Friday.(NEW Mina Hair).

It’s finally time to introduce “Holly” which is the hair I’ve been wearing it constantly as it’s just so good! I’m wearing another one out of the “Highlight” pack because I’m loving that pack of colours for myself.

Mina has a lot of hairs with plaits or ponytails, long ones, short ones, youthful ones, classy ones even windy ones and then there is this one. As it’s a new hair it has that finer texture/colour to it.

In the Highlight and Ombre packs, you have a massive 84 options and the Essentials is 77. You also get the “colour picker” which is that slider that allows you to tweak the colour if you want to. You also get the option for the plait to hang either on the left or right side.

The best thing with Mina’s hair palettes is that you not only get such a big choice each of them are different. I’ve had hair fatpacks where the difference in say the brown shades are barely noticable but with Mina’s each hair colour was in the same shade range but different.

As for the price do come with a price tag to match the quality which is 399Lds for each pack or what makes for a much better price is the fatpack of the 3 colour palettes is 850Lds. This is pretty standard pricing now for quality hair and taking into account the amount you get in each pallete a fair price.

Since this is only for sale at Uber and I’m not even going to try to get in there so I will put in order the link for Mina’s main shop, the Seraphim blog and then the link to Uber.

As always check out the demo in nice lag-free calm and then check out the rest of Mina’s plaited/pony tail range before you make your mind up. Until that wig is on yer noggin you don’t know what will look great and what doesn’t and she has many for you to try out.

I have to add this picture, you may have seen it from a few posts ago or you may not but it just shows off the beautiful blending which has gone into this hair.

I should leave. (New Mina & Caboodle Sale).

FaMESHedX isn’t really an event I visit often as it’s mainly for clothes and any decor is usually a bit more X rated. That is how I almost missed this new Mina hair called Natalia.

I’m regretting not choosing one of the other shades for the mask and the straps as this pale pink with I think a hint of sparkle doesn’t photo as well as the darker ones would have.

I could see my lashes blinking through the mask so I popped the unrigged version on and a couple of clicks of the edit menu was all it took to hide that but I wasn’t too happy with the overall fit so I returned it to the size it comes in and turned off my blink mode…worked a treat. Even if you don’t do any of that it’s hardly noticable it’s only because I take photos that I spotted it.

Don’t worry as you can see you get a mask free hair as well as a mask on it’s own so you can Xrate up any hair in your invent.

There are 3 colour palettes to chose from as well, naturals, ombres or highlights.

NOW what do I always say…”check out her main shop” not just for the demo of this hair but I know she had some other blindfold/collar hair. You may try this new one and think “niceeee” and then try on one of her other hairs and think “nicerrrrrr”.

As for the sale, Caboodle has a spring sale going on and quite a few items in the shop have a black circle sale sign on them. The few I priced checked were 75Ld which is tempting but those prices may vary. I also spotted that the FLF offer is an outfit I had been thinking of buying so you may want to check that out as well. There are also group gifts and I am wearing the newest one which is the top. The group isn’t free, 100Lds, and I have been in it for a long time but I think it’s time to leave and free up the space for another group. Check the gifts out for yourself and for 100Ld pretty darn good.

So I logged in to grab LM’s and spotted what I missed on my first visit to Mina is that she also has a Wanderlust offer out for us, so for only 50Ld you too could own “Tina”. Since I can’t model this hair for you I’m going to give you yet another link to the Serpahim blog where you can see a picture of this young, big bunched hair.
