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.

Here's a little mop of short tousled hair for boys of all ages. This cute style suits all sorts of faces, as the pictures below hopefully display.

The hair comes in 8 colours + grey for elders. You must install the black hair in order for the elder grey to show up. All hairs are binned, family-linked, compressorized, and clearly named.

I've also made some matching sideburns to go with the hair. The sideburns are binned and family-linked in the following manner: Black, Medium Brown, (Light) Blond, (Dark) Red, + Elder Grey are family-linked to each other and are all contained in ONE package file. Done this way because when family-linked facial hair is saved in separate files, the wrong colour gets packaged with full sims. All the other sideburns are binned but each has it's own unique family number, so they're saved in separate files.

Extra special thanks to melodie9 for her age converted "surfer" hair which I used as a base to make this mesh. It would've been a lot more tedious without that hair as a starting point, so thanks melodie!
