The Hair I've Been Waiting For
Since I joined Second Life almost two years ago, I have been searching for one hair style above all others: A single braid that goes down the back. At the time, my best choice was either a flexi braid from Analog Dog or a sculpted braid from Truth. As you can imagine, both did not have the desired effect I was looking for. The flexi braid often vanished inside my body; the sculpted braid was stiff as a board and worked only for photographs.
I had some braid options that were more natural looking, but these styles were over the shoulder. I waited, and I waited. When Second Life became mesh capable, I waited in anticipation. A braid - just a simple braid - that hangs down the back.
It took awhile for that to happen, though I was continually exposed to over-the-shoulder braids from the hairdressers of Second Life. Every so often a down-the-back braid would appear, but it would lack realism. Or the bangs would be blunt and straight.
At long last I finally got the hair I've been looking for. Truth Hawks released 'Laurie' last Friday. Not only does it have a more natural bang, but the braid itself is long, well textured, and not oddly tapered or too thick.
