Oh my I have to download this hair for sure. I love curls and they show up well in your photo's. Thank You for creating new hair meshes, it seems there is not very much going on out here for free.

This is a great female hairstyle and makes a great change to all the straight hairs that are in Maxis's selection . Don't they know that a lot of people have curly/wavy hair , because most of Maxis's styles are either as straight as a ruler or just completely bizarre as though someone's been at the sim with garden shears There's one thing I'd like to ask though . Would it be possible for you to make a ' mirrored ' version of this ( ie the parting on the other side ) by flipping the mesh please ?

How perfectly natural hair!. Curls are always welcome.
It took me 12 days to download it, damn "server busy".
Many thanks, Donny, and go on the same style.

Yah sure, Is it ok if I make the hair itself longer? I want to make a longer curly style with this. If you'd rather have the hair shorter (how it is now) I can make two seperately (1 mirrored and the other longer).

Yeah , I'd be grateful if you could make a version that's the same length as it is now but mirrored please Of course , make as many different lengths of hair as you wish because these are excellent meshes and textures . I find that hair meshes any longer than this tend to clip into the Sim's boobs though if you use Duddly's , Warlokk's or Grizzeldas busty meshes . This current mesh of yours is a nice long style but just cut short enough to avoid any clipping problems

Is this hair is animated ? The post says it is. But in my game it´s not animated. Anybody knows what I done wrong? Oh, please my english is so bad.

Im sorry, the animating was just really basic I guess. (meaning it only is set to move with neck, head, and spine 2) If any one could offer any tips for more realistic animating , it would be appreciated.

I love this hair, in the picture it looks good...but in game...even better! It's so gorgeous in game, too bad I can't just have all my sim ladies have it! Great job!

I downloaded the zip, saved it to my computer, but it says it's not a valaid archive when I try to open it? Do you know what's wrong?

Thanks,
