|Fashion Angel's hair chox|
I first encountered the hairchalking trend via my friend Kat who mentioned it once to me before while we were talking about girly-girl things. So I began to do some research as well as some ebay searches to see what the hype was all about. I encountered both Fashion Angel's Hair Chox and Monster High's version of said product. So I thought, oh how! How interesting <3

|168 pesos for a set of 12 "hairchalks" aka soft pastels|
But of course with every successful trend there will always be people who would take advantage of said trend and try to dupe people into purchasing similar products, with similar effects but with over the top prices, for products they payed a paltry sum for. Case and point is this...
|Wait a nosepicking second... HOW MUCH?!!!|
I'm all for making money and working hard to make a living but cheating people out of their well earned cash for these so-called "hairchalk" their selling? Don't give me that BS that it's "High grade" or "Salon Grade" hair chalk. I know what Soft Pastels/ Chalk pastels look like, hell! ANY ART STUDENT, ART ENTHUSIAST, BJD FACEUP ARTIST etc. etc. can tell you that the items they are selling IS IN FACT SOFT PASTELS/ CHALK PASTELS!
Maybe you'll ask me, "Maybe they just look the same? Maybe chalk pastels don't even work on hair and you're just being a bitch about people making more money than you??!!!"
Pfffttt... I bought the CHEAPEST 12 piece soft pastel set just to prove that it's basically the same thing and it has the same result.. BEHOLD!

So if you're one of those people who've "pre-ordered" or "purchased" these so called "hairchalk" please spread the word and inform people so that they in turn would not be scammed by these so called "hard working people". And for more information on hair chalking please visit these links:
