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!

I absolutaly love long hair, and I like to have a few different hairstyles in my game. The one thing that bothers me is that most hairstyles come with really shiny textures, and these don't match my game at all! So I decided to take yet another lovely mesh and maxis-matchify it (I just made up that word ). Here's Skysims FREE Mesh 194 retextured for you:



I decided to call this set 'windswept hair' because it looks like the hair is swept aside by the wind. Obviously...

Let's move on!

The set contains 8 binned hair files: A natural color with an extra suprise file! I decided to make some crazy bottom tip-dye variations to each color, because it looks pretty awesome!

The textures are from EA's hairstyles, and I edited/rotated and changed the colors to make it look good and maxis-match on this mesh. Alpha texture credit goes to Skysims, I just made the hair a little bit shorter by cutting off some of Skysims' alpha textures and filling in the top parts to make the hair line more realistic.




- All haircolors are binned, as well as the colored versions
- Elders have a grey version of the hair
- Hairstyle works for all ages, colored versions only from teen to adult, since I figured you don't dye your kids' hair!

Make sure you get the hair mesh from Skysims' page @ TSR!
Any questions? Let me know!

Happy simming!
Note: Skysims meshes always floats a bit above your sims chest (I think to avoid clipping with most outfits) so it might look a little strange from the sides. Unfortunately, I couldn't fix this with just retexturing the hairstyle. It didn't bother me so much to stop it from retexturing and using. I just felt like mentioning before you'd get a bit dissapointed in the game
