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 cute little hairdo that suits all sorts of faces. It's short, straight, and boyish. Available for all ages in 9 colours, plus grey for elders. The black hair is required for the elder grey to work.

All files are compressed, colour-binned, and family-linked. In fact they're all part of the same family so if you choose to only install one shade of brown, for instance, the family-linking will still work.

What's that you say? This hairstyle looks familiar? Oh. Perhaps that's because it began life as a hair from the EA Store. I always liked that hair, but it was always a bit too big and asymmetrical for my sims' little heads. So I reshaped it to fit the head more naturally, trimmed the bangs/fringe, extended the sideburns so it can be used seamlessly with facial hair, and flipped it so the part is on the other side. A comparison pic is included below. This new hair is not a replacement, btw - both hairstyles can be used at the same time.

New Mesh - All Ages - No Expansions/Stuff Packs/Store Content Required - Enjoy!



August 21, 2011 UPDATE:

Great big thanks to melodie9 whose toddler & child hair meshes I used as a base. No part of her meshes are actually visible here, but it would've been much more work to start from scratch. So thanks, melodie!
