Sooo, Leaf was telling me about this place with scripted hair. You put it up. You take it down.
Of course I would never fall for a gimmick like that. I was so there within five seconds!
THERE is Natalia Zelmanov's Sirena Hair & Fashion on the Sunset sim.
Natalia's newest hair is scripted. By voice command, or by attaching an ornament, the left and right sides can be swept up or let down. There's even a special ornament that will let others remove it and take down your hair.
I'm not sure why, but with the hairdo I chose, Alicia, you can put up only one side at a time. In face, the hair doesn't actually go up; it's just swept behind the ear. I do that sometimes with my IRL hair when I go out.
I know exactly how Natalia does the upsweep thing; I use the same technique in my brooms: on command, she turns one set of prims visible and another invisible. Clever, if I do say so myself!
The hair is quite well done, and I'm sure that when I go back to get the SLURL to paste into this article I'll pick up another just to see if I can put both sides up.
Be sure to check out Natalia's Mermaid Diaries blog.
