This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Four red, a rich brown and a white recolor of Rose Sims2 short unisex male hair mesh that is reminiscent of the Spock hairstyle (but of course, it's a little too long and messy). The female recolors are posted in the adult female section. These are simple recolors of Rose's textures with original alphas. Thank you, Rose, for allowing me to do these recolors.

These recolors were done for the Natural Redhead Project to make more hairstyles available in the many beautiful naturally occurring shades of red hair. The red recolors are available in four shades: auburn, copper, ginger and strawberry blonde. There is also a rich shade of mid-brown and an ice white. The recolors are color binned red except for brown (binned brown) and white (custom). It may seem odd to put shades that range from rusty blonde to brown red in the red bin but the goal is to make the full spectrum of red shades available to genetic redheads.

The style comes in toddler through elder. The elder hair comes in two shades: brown and auburn have salt and pepper while copper, ginger and strawberry blonde come with an ivory white shade. The ice white is white for all ages. The toddler hair is the longish, straight Maxis hair with bangs. I recolored the toddler hair to match the other ages' color.

Mesh Information: The mesh comes with 5 colors at Rose Sims2 in Download > Hair. It is currently on page 9. The file to download is The name of the unipped mesh file is MESH_RoseHair_0063.package.

These recolors may only be used in Sims distributed by 100% free sites. Do not distribute or include the mesh in any uploads! Link to the and provide directions on how to locate the mesh in the Downloads > Hair.

FYI - the custom content in the photo's models are free downloads unless noted:
Freckles: the freckle and eye set is from Alkaloid at MTS2 as is the freckle "blush" at InSim.

Skin: JWilson5's Hairy Male Skins for Redheads. The skin for the normal Maxis body type doesn't require any additional meshes, just download the Norm-HairyRed-Barbie.rar file for hairy, SKN-Norm-XhairyRed-Barbie.rar for extra hairy and SKN-Norm-XXhairyRed-Barbie.rar for extreme hairy (Not to worry, only the males come with body hair )

Sweaters: The child and teen sweaters are from Rabid Angel's Weekend at the Lodge series at Sims Connection . The child sweaters are free but the teen sweaters are a premium download.

Eyebrows: by Helaene and converted to default eyebrows by Sciberg at ModTheSims2

Live Long and Prosper!
