I'm trying very hard to make an avi for less than $75L...  I thought it looked pretty good. 

But then...  My friend started making fun of my classic head.  I'm using the ecurvy body which i'm content with.  I wish to stick with the ecurvy body because I've been working very hard and getting clothing items to fit it.  I don't want to start all over again.  I'm happy with the body.

But I've been having issues finding a decent (not great or fantastic) head for less than $75L.  Can anyone recommend a mesh head that is less than $75L?  It does NOT have to be bento...  A static head is totally fine.  

If you find something on MP can you give me the actual link?  ty

Please...  I'm looking for specific advise on mesh heads under $75L.  Please do not say 'look on MP' period.

Finding someone with only $75L head content is easy ... a $75L mesh head ... hmm, wasn't there even mesh base heads without bento? Maybe somewhere as a group gift where the mesh bodies and mesh bento heads are made and sold ... as an idea.

Have you considered just getting a different friend?

Visit Absolut Creation, they have a L$1 non-Bento, Omega ready(*) head for group members (membership is L$10), it's really the pre-Bento version of their Bento head, which would cost L$825 if I recall correctly.
Here's a pic of me wearing that head, taken in 2017 when I had just started to adjust the face a bit.

(*)To enable Omega, you will need the installer, which will you cost more than L$75. But with Omega enabled you can use an applier to enable BoM so perhaps consider saving up for that and get it in due time.

What she said. ☝️

If you like your classic head as it is, then stay with it. You should only switch to a mesh head on your own terms, not when someone thinks you should.

read the description very carefully... think i see the next question comming after you bought it "can't add make up..."  ..

And think also you have to think about; do i look better with such thing covering my standard head .. because in my opinion.. it doesnt and is a waste of your 29L$

thank you everyone for your ideas...  I'm still searching around.  The genus lab has several heads for a $100L group fee.  Its a good deal.  But, I'm a firm believer that adding pixie ears to the classic head makes a huge difference in my opinion.  This is why making an avi under $75L is a challenge i guess.  I may change a couple classic heads to see if i find one i like best.  thanks again everyone for your help.

Well, I bought one to try it out, and yeah, this is worth L$29, or more.  The default shape out of the box was rather ugly but I managed to make her look quite pretty.

Modelled here with one of Pink Fuel's classic skins and makeup which are L$150 in the mainstore (big pack of makeup is included with the skin). So here, you get a mesh head with skin and a range of makeups for less than L$200.

Tried it out with the Catwa head animator; it doesn't work as it should but there is a very slight movement of the lips with it.

No lashes included and I don't actually own any separate ones so I couldn't try the head with them.

Only flaw is the ears which are too low down, you can't hide them and they don't respond to sliders (so no pointy elf ears on this head)

Yes, it was this one - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Sahara-Bento-BoM-Mesh-Head-ruth/18688400

The shape is full-perm so I'll send you the one I modified to get that look, you can use it as-is or as a starting point to make your own look.

Matty...  so sweet of you...  I wanted to post some pics here so you can see what I look like as of now.  I'm also sending you a link to my flicker so you can see updates on clothing items basically free for this avi challenge.  ty again..  it was a surprise and very sweet of you to purchase an item for me.  hugs.

notes...  this is the SAHARA head $30L, a free LAQ BOM skin group gift, bathing suit, hair, necklace and shoes all free.  Money spent so far...  $30L.  The ecurvy body was $1L but that amount did get refunded after purchase from EBODY store inworld.  BOM LAQ skin does work on classic head.

@Meredith8888 @Matty Luminos great job with the heads they don't look too shabby. only discovered them today, the alt using the body has the very basic head that was available at the inworld store think I might be generous enough to spend L$29 getting it something a bit better to try out. 

The LAQ skin is nice also coming with all tones included free.  smile

You will have to show me that. I am currently at the Genus store, but see no group gifts or discounted items.

hello Fritigern...  I would not mind showing you.  But right now I'm on a project.  Its on the group gift wall downstairs.

There is a single group gift, which is a skin. The store is at ground level, so there is no "downstairs". I actually think you are not thinking of Genus but of some other store.
