This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here's a messy lil' hairdo for the boys. It was originally a female style from the EA Store, but I thought it would look cute and boyish on..... boys! So I converted it! Yay! The original female hair is not required.

Binned! - All hair colours appear in their proper colour bins.

Family Linked! - Flip between colours without reverting to another mesh. All shades are in the same family, so if you only want one red/blond/brown it doesn't matter which you choose - they'll all work the same. You can install every shade too, if you wish.

Grey Elders! - You must install the Black hair for the Elder hair to work.

Animated! - The front bangs move a bit. Same as the original female mesh.

All Ages! New Mesh + 11 Recolours Included.

Questions? I'm still pretty new at hair meshing, so if you find any problems or have any questions, please leave a comment. Of course you can also comment if you have no questions or problems. I like comments!

Additional Credits:
First of all, big huge thanks to melodie9 because I used one of her toddler/child meshes as a base. It's all behind-the-scenes stuff - nothing visible - but was a huge help. Also, super huge extra special thanks to tiggerypum, CatofEvilGenius, and HystericalParoxysm for helping when the meshes refused to play nice. Thanks to everyone else who tried to help too, and to all the other tutorial writers, tool makers ('specially Wes_h), and everyone who keeps MST2 running. And thanks to the mystery EA artist who made the female hair in the first place.
