Good things often come in threes. Wishes from a lamp. Guesses for a name. Deities. Quest tasks. Even good stories or well working jokes are divided in three: beginning, middle, the end. Two to create a pattern, third as a punchline. Rhetoric speakers don’t list two or four things, it’s always first, second and third. It appeals better to the human mind like that.
What about Charmed and the Power of Three? Obviously bringing older beliefs and preferences to the present media. What about Charlie’s Angels? That’s a classic trio we all know as well. It’s a simple concept, really. A brunette, a redhead and a blonde. All given personalities we associate with the said hair colours.
The blonde is always the pretty but ditzy one, isn’t she? Redheads get to be fiery sexy with temper. Black or brown haired one has the brains. I wonder how long it will take before such stereotypes are formed about non-natural colours. After all, a lot of people who are blonde, redhead or black-haired are not so naturally. It has nothing to do with personality, only the associated concept. What are people with blue hair like? Green? What about purple? (Except awesome.)
Hair colour is one of the defining features that we categorize and accept in our heads. We divide people based on their hair colour, often adding plenty of associations with the tone, which is ridiculous considering the woman in the pictures could be the same one with wigs, after all!
All the new hairstyles by Alice Project are available in Hair Fair, hop right into her booth here. Erika, the short bob, is a fair gift to the visitors so go grab it while you try the demos of the whole five new releases! As for colours, I’m sure you all know that the hairdo is pure white when you buy it and then you get to dye it with the HUD to what and how you wish. There’s more HUDs for sale if the included one isn’t enough for you. If you use only a few colour combinations ever, you might want to consider the Create Your Own versions which include a HUD of -all- the colours and textures Alice has, but allows only five different copies of the hairstyle made. The Infinity versions allow re-dyes for ever and ever, but include only a mini-pack of colours to begin with.
The Noodles skin by Essences is available in the current round of The Dressing Room Fusion and it was so adorable that I had to use it with all three colours.
