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 thank Velvetcube/Simmergirl for her tutorial and her efforts in making the female styles available for males. As such I've unlocked the Jeanette hairstyle to be usable by men. And unlike the other female-> male hair conversions, this style turns out to allow for a nearly smooth transition, with only slight flaws in the fitting.

(However, the long hair only shows on adults and elders. Teen males have a short, messy cut.)

Here are some screenshots, at different angles show show the relatively neat fit. I've also include the file of the hair, usable by both genders. I've made no changes to the texture or alpha maps yet. This file just adds the option for males to use the Jeanette Biedermann hair too.

*Update*: As requested, added more colors than the default dark blond. Black, a Reddish-Brown, Pale-blond, White, and Scarlet red.

Alphas still have not been changed.


edited: to add more color options.

another one-eyed bunny head! i had the biedermann mesh and still had trouble. according to janna, posting on sims resource, her 'hollywooditgirl' hair was causing trouble. anyway, i removed the origional 'it girl' files and replaced them with the fixed ones and now, although i still have bunny heads in the hair bin, the hair appears on my sims and works fine. (first bunny head is hope this helps.

p.s. no tech questions pls. i don't have a clue. only passing on what worked for me. i'm just an appreciative audience........

I've had no problems whatsoever using this hair. It looks great in game. I have the "gap" near the forehead, but that's where the bangs fall apart from the rest of the hair. Gives it a messy look on the guys I created. I'm sure it could be fixed by playing with the hair color or alphas some more, if I could figure it out :confused: Great job though and thanks!!!

Here we go... another brown hair recolour for free. Just PLEASE remember to go download the mesh, hm?

Download - please read all instructions before downloading any files!
File Type: zip (557.6 KB, 62 downloads)

Let's face it, I KNOW I've been at this too long when successfully importing a new skin texture or a new model puts me in a real life Platinum Mood!
