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.

Hi everyone,

Here are 4 'Maxis-like' recolours of HelgaSims' beautiful hair, number 82.

I made this, because I still prefer Maxis-like haircolours, although I also use non-Maxis-like colours now. How my Sims look has also changed. But this not about me, but about this download, so let's go on.

There are 4 colours: black, blonde, brown and red, which are binned, so they appear in the right colour-bin. Elders turn grey and there's just one grey colour. The grey colour is linked to the blonde on, so if you want the grey you need the blonde recolour.

For these recolours to show up in your game, you will need the mesh, which is not included in the download. You can find it here:
It's the third hair. To download click on: 'скачать'.

Edit: You can now download the mesh from here, because I've uploaded it.

I hope you like them!
