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.
Peggy Zone (formerly Peggy Sims 2) elegant updo (2007-09-21) in 10 recolors: 4 reds, 3 browns, 1 blonde and 2 custom shades in white and rose gray. This hair style is for all ages and the elder shades are the same as the other ages. The red recolors are available in four shades: dark auburn, auburn, copper and strawberry blonde. There are three shades of rich brown: dark brown, chestnut brown and mid-brown, a pale blonde and two custom pale shades: ice white and rose gray. Thanks to Peggy Zone for letting us recolor their meshes and textures.

These recolors were done for the Natural Redhead Project to make more hairstyles available in the beautiful natural shades of red hair. 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.

Note: the auburn shade runs a much "hotter" than my other recolors. It is my attempt to capture the magical moment when average brown hair suddenly explodes into red highlights. This photo of Frish from the Natural Redhead Project says it all. I am not sure if I am there yet but I will probably keep on trying.

Skin: 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!
