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.
I have been granted permission to upload these by the lovely Rose. Recolored from child through elder, I've also edited the alpha file to make for a more plain style.
The mesh can now be found at rosesims2.net. Look for "Laura's Hair" (but is still included in the first file. The second only contains the red recolor)

I hope you enjoy them!

I'd be happy to add red, but umm...I thought I had a black one up there... I maybe need to make it more black. I'll get them up by tomorrow, promise.

Fantastic, thanks! And heh, yeah, that was black. Just more blueish-black. (Which is a color I love, by the way.) I have a neighborhood with mermaids in it, and they usually get blueish hair, is all.

Thank you, I am not able to recolor hair yet and have been waiting for someone to recolor some of Roses earlier hairstyles, might you be thinking of doing more? I hope so! Thanks again!

These are really pretty. Would you be interested in doing sim-realistic recolors? I mean the original maxis colors and less-shiny textures. Thanks so much for these.

I ADORE you. I've been looking for months for a long braid.
Is there any way that you could make the Wild Blue recolor's mesh into a male mesh? It's perfect for a Sim I've been searching for ingredients for ages...I haven't found a blue haircolor/style suitible for him yet, and I have everything I need except for the hair...
Was the original mesh for this hair free on her site or was it donation?
Thank you!

love it!

As far as I know, this mesh was made by Rose as a christmaspresent for MTS2. It was on her site only for a few days, then it was here, but when I searched for it yesterday, I could not find it. It was around christmas, and the person who had uploaded it is called WillStefan. He had permission to upload, but I think he removed it because Christmas is over...

Ooh... that's pretty. Is there anyway you could make it for males too? That would be awesome on some of my male Sims.

I don't do any 3d rendering at all, so if anyone wants this converted for males, I would contact Rose, or ask if someone else could do it. (But I'd still be sure to check with her first.)
