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.
Five reds, a rich brown and a blonde recolor of the beautiful Rose Sims2 chignon mesh for child through elder females. These are 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 five shades: auburn, copper, carrot, ginger and strawberry blonde. There is also a rich shade of chestnut brown and an bright blonde. The recolors are color binned red except for brown (binned brown) and blonde (blonde). 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 chignon style comes in child through elder. The elder hair comes in three shades: brown and auburn have frosted brown, copper, carrot and ginger come with pink beige, and blonde and strawberry blonde with an a champagne. I use pink beige because one of my friends who started out with carrot orange hair has matured into hair the color of pinky beige.
