We're really not supposed to recommend specific merchants or products in the Answers area.  If you open Marketplace or your Search function and start cruising, though, you can find a zillion places to buy hair.Wherever you shop, in world or in MP, be sure to try demos first.  Hair can look great in a photo or on someone else's head but make you look really stupid.

Actually, Dakota posted at one time - I'll have to hunt for it - that naming specific stores when asked was okay.  Folks just had to be careful about self promotion.

can anyone tell me stores for hair please thank you 

What styles do you prefer?   Many folks might recommend different stores based on style desired.

(Most of the stores listed below can be accessed inworld from their MP page SLURL)

I totally recommend going to MP and just searching 'hair' and taking a look.  There's a lot out there!!  The fact I didn't write a lot about some of them doesn't mean they aren't good - most of these are favorites - but I kinda have to go make dinner!

Several decent hair makers have freebies or dollarbies either in store or on MP so you can try their hair.  This is not an exhaustive list, just a list of good stores that you can use to get an idea of what you may like. Most good hair has at minimum a color HUD.  newer hairs often have style HUDs too.  Most of the hair below either come with available funky color HUDS or the ability to edit the hair color yourself via texture b/c i like to do that. Nearly all of them come natively in 'normal people' hair colors. 😸

______

  • The hair I'm wearing is rezology, available in MP, in their own store (last time i looked was a few months ago) and also in a few satellite locations (I think ADN was one of them, but don't quote me.  You can try out demos from MP or the other locations -- colors do not have to be funky, that's just my thing.  You can make any hair any color you wish. 

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/121179

You will find several of their hairs for 1L - this gives you a good idea of what to expect from their hair.  This is my favorite hair maker.  Some people find the complexity too high, especially for their older hair, but I love their textures.

______

  • If you like streaks and bi colored hair (if you are industrious, multi-colored hair!!) in unusual styles, braids, etc, you may want to try Escalated (funky is the rule there) braids, half and half hair colors, and the wildest and best thought out color palettes in SL (including hair not found in nature, not even with dye!)

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/135414

Highly recommend visiting her actual store.  She has lots of gifts and lots of lucky letter boards and Midnight madness (all group member only) but if you like her hair, it is worth joining.  She tends to set the group free around Christmas and then give out advent gifts, which is a good way to see if you like her stuff)  If you like funky, this is the store for you!  There will be some freebies for other hair/fashion groups in the store as i recall.

______

  • Alice Project - older store, not sure she's still updating, but has some good freebies, discounts, and a variety of cool hair with a variety of good HUDs.  i recommend visiting the inworld store for free hairs with your SLF&O group or mini mania. Midnight madness seldom locks anymore.

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/139874

______

  • No.Match is good middle of the road (and great support for both women and men)

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/174575

A ton of group gifts with a (paid join) of her group.  Most, if not all hair has a male and a female version, which is very cool, b/c there isn't enough good male hair out there. Come with color HUDs, in mostly conventional colors, but nice and rich colors.  A few hairs have unlocked textures if you want to funkify your color palette like me!

Regular giveaways.

______

  • Great (mostly female) is Truth Hair - lots of their new hair has style HUDs (you can move hair back or forward for example).  All have color huds.  The first decent hair I ever got in SL -- they gave out boxes of their older hair on one of the newbie sims I visited and that was my hair until I was ready to start spending money in SL 

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/13

The fact that the store is number 13 on MP, suggests it's been there a very long time.  Anyway, they have thought out the hair thing long and well.  YOU CANNOT GO WRONG HERE. 

Store can be laggy, but you should go anyway and check out their discount hair as well as all the various styles available, and see the HUDS they come in.

______

  • Little Bones - I love them!  They have both style and color HUDs.  Style HUDs on newer stuff.

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/87784

Doesn't appear to have anything on the MP right now, but did have a group gift when she did.  As far as I know, store is still there.

Visit store for Midnight Madness (no group). Also has hair/accessory gachas. Great collection of group gifts with paid group join.

______

  • Exile - I love my colors, I love fun styles.  They have both. Men's hair as well.  Periodic gifts.

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/17591

great hair, great huds, fades etc.

______

  • Sinktiklia Was my default hair for a while.  Only Truth and Rezology can also say that.  They also do great make up.

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/179492

Visit store for Lucky letter boards. (no group)

Lots of group gifts (paid join)

______

  • Ali&Ali - Old and probably needing updating but available a lot of places and with plenty of give aways at their locations - hair for men and women and both curly and straight hair is supported.

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/9759

If you need hair for ANY purpose, there's a hair somewhere in their vast catalog that addresses your need.  You may not like it all, but there's a lot of variety. 

I needed 'bad hair day' hair for a dance, and yes, I found crazy hair!

______

  • Argrace Graceful, lyrical hair for men and women.

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/106802

If you like natural looking hair that falls well, this is for you.  I think they may be Japanese.  They have a refined sensibility.

______

  • Analog Dog - simply the best curly hair in SL. Great styles.

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/13404

They used to have a 'hair ball' free on their sim with some of their hair.  If it is still there, it's worth the search.

_________

  • Curious Kitties.  Hair for the anime in you.

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/13404

Colorful.  Still haven't figured out their HUD systems. HUDs are usable by multiple hairs.

I like several of DeepBlueJoy's recommendations.  Rezology is good, and I especially like that their HUD allows you to tint the hair in an unlimited way.  However, be sure to try the demos...some of their hair is low complexity, but some other styles have a horribly high complexity.

I also like D!va...they have fewer styles and colors, but their hair always has a lot of fine strands and pretty details.

Besides the heads they are now famous for, Catwa has some nice hair...a few styles even combine mesh and flexiprims in a very attractive way.

I recommend joining the HairSL group or visiting their website, you can also look at the Hair Fair website for previous years to get a huge list of hairstores to visit in world 

https://hairsl.wordpress.com/

 

https://hairfair.wordpress.com/

 

that was the name of the group I couldn't remember hairsl -- several stores I've been to have hair gifts for people who are members of this group, including, (last time I looked, anyway) Escalated.
