Five red shades of XM Sim's fabulous long bouffant hair mesh 39 for all ages. Thanks to Flora and XM Sims for allowing us to recolor their meshes. I just had to make some red shades of it after I saw Kyriaw's glorious alpha edit of this hair style. Thank you, Kryiaw for such a great alpha edit! Of course, I can't leave well enough alone, I shortened the ribbon tail that draps over the shoulder as much as possible while leaving intact the ribbon that runs across the top of the head.

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, dark copper, copper, ginger and strawberry blonde. The recolors are color binned red. It may seem odd to put shades that range from rusty blonde to deep brown red in the red bin but the goal is to make the full spectrum of red shades available to genetic redheads.

This glamour style comes in toddler through elder. The elder hair comes in two shades: auburn and dark copper come with an ivory elder shade while copper, ginger and strawberry blonde have a tawny salt and pepper elder shade.
