Well I had some days off from the real world work schedule and was able to come up with another style. I worked on making better and finer hair hair textures and to me that seemed to help make this style better than some others I have made in the past.
This style is around 123 prims. I will price it at 235L.
Recently I've noticed that some other stores sell hair for much higher than this. For 235L you get at least 6 colors. I've seen some stores charge as much as 350L for a similar amount and even as much as 200L for one color. Ouch!! Are you kidding me!
Fat packs or mega packs are even worse, 2000L for a fat pack? My fat pack or Mega pack contains all 50 colors priced at 800L. I know some stores put in more colors, but some colors can be created simply by just tinting the hair or even tinting the hair darker in many cases.
Maybe my hair isn't as good as theirs, but I do put in 15 to 25 hours (my estimate) per hair style. I spent over 1000L for uploads just for this style. It's quite often I create new textures for each hair style. The effort is there. 5 to 10 hair styles a month is just not my style.
I hope the product I create is half way comparable to some other stores as many of the styles are priced only 2/3 of their price.
Thanks for looking.

This style can be worn two different ways, with or without bangs.
Also the scrunchie is scripted with 36 colors/textures. It can be tricky at times to trigger this script with the left click of the mouse. The re-size menu may come up for the hair. If so, just close and try again.
Once again, current and future releases do have the resize script for making hair sizing much easier than regular SL tools.
This hair is built with Linden system hair. It can be tricky to size if adjustments are necessary. If so, go to this post "http://joliefemmedesigns.blogspot.com/2009/07/linden-hair-mesh-sizing-instructions.html"
Wearing this with just a ponytail is only 15 prims and up to 62 prims all together.
I will be pricing this at 235L and the mega pack will be 800L. Don't forget that much of the hair at Jolie Femme for the month of November is still priced at 100L.
Thanks for looking.

I know, but I spent so much time working on it. I need to show off a little. ;-)
FYI for anyone reading, the TP system goes from ground level to level 2. To get to the top use the TP from the middle of the second floor.
The top is a bit small, so you will need to zoom close enough to see your avatar on the top floor. From there find the stairs up to the balcony to see a great view. Too bad draw distance causes so much lag.
Also the Tower is not 100% complete by a long shot. I will be returning the hair production and the tower will now be a side project after two long months of work. There are textures that need to be done, a balcony roof on the first floor that needs to be done. Also some more pieces need to be added to the outside of the tower. I doubt I will ever finish it, but it is to the point that it looks pretty good I think.
Since everyone will need to put up with the remodeling, I have put about half of the hair styles at Jolie Femme at 100L. Perhaps more later in the month. It took 3 days this week to remodel the store and put up the Eiffel Tower. Enjoy. I'm going to be putting up some pictures. Next week its back to making hair.
