Black, Chestnut Brown, Blonde, White and Four Red recolor/retextures of Peggy Zone (formerly Peggy Sims 2) Free Male Ponytail. The style comes in toddler through elder ages and the elder age is the same color as the other ages. As I worked with this mesh, I began to realize the potential it had for different looks. I decided to do a retexture of the hair pulled back against the head to give it more detail and depth of color. I modified a texture from Alkaloid and XPTL297 to fit this mesh. The bangs and ponytail are Peggy's original textures. Thanks to Peggy Zone for sharing this great mesh with us.

These recolors were done for the Natural Redhead Project to make more hairstyles available in the wonderful naturally occurring shades of red hair. The red recolors are available in four shades: auburn, copper, golden red and strawberry blonde. There is also a blue black, a rich shade of chestnut brown, blonde and an ice white. The recolors are all color binned as described while the white shade is binned 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.

Additional Credits:
FYI - the custom content in the photo's models are free downloads unless noted:

Skin: Two skins were used. The heavily freckled skin is a wonderful Oepu recolor by Goldbeere who added freckles!

The other skin is my favorite by JWilson5 Hairy Skins for Redheads, a modified Louis (SimScribbing) skin with AllenABQ body hair. 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 ).

Eyes: Alkaloid's Freckle linked Eyes : Sims created with these eyes also have a freckling on their noses!

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 Rose Sims 2 on page 8 of Downloads > Makeup. The download file is
