Iris Ophelia's ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style
- Brand name: Truth
- [SL Marketplace]
- Estimated average item price: L$250
- Brand owner: Truth Hawks
Truth is another brand that's been in Second Life for years now, and unsurprisingly these high-quality hairstyles (mostly for women) have become a staple of SL fashion. Hair by Truth Hawks has a very distinctive texture and style to it, and even his mesh styles feel natural and soft when others may look plasticky or piecy. Above I'm wearing my last purchase from Truth, Cyanne, a relatively recent rigged mesh style that comes with a colour-changing head scarf.
There's a serious critique of Truth that his styles often look very similar. I always get a bit bothered when I hear this because although it may seem true in some cases, you really need to take a minute to think about why. How many times a day do you think popular hair designers get bothered in IMs or notecards about silly things like adding bangs to one of their pre-existing styles, or making it shorter, or longer, or fluffier, or flatter? One of the reasons for Truth's popularity is that he has a little something to satisfy everyones wants and needs. His store is so absolutely massive at this point that you can nearly arrange his styles like a gradient to find the one that's perfect for your features and your taste. Though some styles might look similar at first blush, it's a godsend if you're looking for a cut that's juuuuust right.
