I've been working on this style since the middle of August and it just kept taking such a long time. I just wanted to do something really special before my wedding on the 18th and honeymoon the rest of the month.

So here it is named Carrie, since this is based on a hairstyle that Carrie Underwood has worn.

Carrie is perhaps styled with a little more sculpt than I have used in the past to hopefully create less flickering and not such a sudden contrast between moving hair and static hair. There is tons of layering in this style. Adding a hairbase will also nicely add to this style.

At 147 prims, priced at 245L for regular packs and 825L for mega packs. I really put my best effort into this one (likely over 30 hours total).

As always, please try out the demo. As much as I try, I can not always test every shape out there and there will be shapes that will not fit into this. The demo is free and doesn't bite. My worst IM is someone saying they bought hair and don't like it and then want to return it.

Thank you once again for looking.

PS - Bought the nice gone at Blaze and its called Sophisticate. Everything else including the shape by JF.

The cost of making hair.

The next hairstyle named Carrie (Carrie Underwood) I am making will require two new sets of textures to download at 50 colors each. This alone will cost 1000L in upload fees. Yikes!!! Now add on about 25 sculpts that is another 250L. Holy Cow!! Lastly, two uploads for the ad, 20L.

Why so many textures and new ones? Well I like to make new ones and keep things fresh. Or improve upon old textures. Things have certainly changed since the beginning of prim hair when one texture was good enough.
