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.

Thanks for sharing.

Loved them! They are perfect. Exactly the kind of men hair I've been looking for for a long, long time...
