I’ll be back tomorrow with a new style review…or two!

A New Style for the New Year!

It’s called Bussom, and it’s available now from the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.

The usual selling price is L$1200, but you’ll find it on the Action Wall, which means that if you’re wearing your A&A Group tag, it’s yours for only L$600! Individual color packs have the same discount: normally L$250, but only L$125 with your tag active.

As always, I’m modelling it in red:

In addition, you can customize the ski cap to any one of 9 different colors. Or as they say on television, “BUT WAIT! That’s Not All!”

If you prefer, you don’t need to wear the ski cap at all! So really, you’re getting even more of a deal: wear the cap in the winter, and take it off when the weather gets warm.

There’s still more! You can get it in Red Moon for free as a voting gift. Or buy it in Mixed Blonde of L$50 on the Sale wall. Finally, you can also get it free in Blonde Blue at the front desk.

So that’s Bussom, a great way to start off the new year at the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore!

Our Classic New Year Fun is Back!

There’s a new surprise hair sale in the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore! There are 24 boxes of hair, and each holds 3 different hairstyles in 3 exclusive colors. 6 boxes are for men, and 18 for are for women.

You don’t have to be a maths genius to figure out that comes to a grand total of 72 different styles—which if listed here in all their details would probably put you to sleep. But here’s the thing: at only $L50 a box, why not take a chance? You already know that A&A makes the best hair in SL, so you’re not really risking anything.

I can guarantee that this is a sale like no other, and it only comes once a year, so don’t miss your chance!

But you’d better hurry, as the sale only lasts through the end of January!

The Holidays Are Here! And That Means Relay For Life

This year we’re celebrating the 9th Annual SL Christmas Expo, and as always, all proceeds are being donated to the American Cancer Society for use in the fight against childhood cancer.

Alli&Ali is right there with their special offer, Shiki.

Shiki: All Colors Display

It’s an elegant new style, admirably suited for wearing to any one of a number for RFL (Relay For Life) events going on now in SL.

But there’s a catch: it’s only available at the Expo, from December 5th through the 15th. And there are no discounts since 100% of the sales are being donated to RLF.

To find it, go to the 9th Annual SL Christmas Expo’s home page. Once there, click on SHOP THE EXPO and then Shopping Directory:

Shiki Menu
Where to go

That will bring up links to all the vendors in the Expo. Scroll down until you see Alli&Ali Designs, then click on the link to the right of it. This will take you to the shop, where you can buy Shiki, either in the full set of 256 colors for L$1200, or individual sets of 32 for L$250.

Even if you’re not interested in Shiki, go to the store anyway: there are several other styles and items available and, like Shiki, all proceeds from your purchases go to the RFL and subsequently to the American Cancer Society.

And my personal wish is for you, dear reader, to have a safe and happy holiday season, regardless of your belief system. And if you don’t celebrate the holidays, have a safe and happy season ayway!

CASSIOPEIA: A CORRECTION

Sorry, folks, but I blew it. On my recent review of Cassiopeia I said that only one part of the style was colorable.

I stand corrected.

Here’s what I missed:

See where it says <— Click to switch modes? I completely missed it. There are three settings available: Main Hair: Click on it and it will bring you to All. A final click will take you to Streaks.

Here’s an example, where I colored all three segments differently:

I apologize for the confusion.

Cassiopeia: A Mixed Braid

This week’s special at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore is Cassiopeia, a cute boho-chic braid with endless possibilities.

The basic color is the same for each set, with the color of the braid itself is up to you. The complete set of all colors sells for L$1200, but as always, if you wear your A&A group tag, it’s L$600.

Individual color sets of 16 colors go for L$250, with the group discount of L$125.

Other specials include a free copy in Blackberry Rose, in front of the voting board, Caramel Strawberry at the front desk, and Ash Pearl for L$50 on the Specials Board.

You see the red braid? That’s the part of this style that’s changeable. As always, I’m wearing it in red.

My Verdict?

Cassiopeia is a simple, carefree style will go well with any less-formal fashions, such as a tee-shirt or a camisole

A girl could do no better than wearing Cassiopeia, my style for the next week.

Phoebe: A Classic Look For The Ages

Every once in a while there comes a hairstyle for eternity. Phoebe is one such style:

This week’s special at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore Comes in 16 colors and, as always, has Copy and Mod permissions. Normally L$250, be sure to wear your A&A group tag for the discounted price of L$125. Find it at the New Releases Action Wall.

You can also grab a single color—Coffee—from in front of the Voting Wall.

It’s perfect for any occasion, either formal or informal.

Beautiful curls lend an air of sophistication, but it’s not out of place when paired with jeans and a sweatshirt or a T.

It’s a design I’m proud to add to my regular rotation of hairstyles, and I’m sure it will fit right into your own wardrobe.

Phoebe: the style of the week at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.
