This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Hi! I had been meaning to submit the hair I did for the couple of Sims I made. So here's another one. I did this on the Maxis bald head for all ages so it would be really close cropped.

Only thing with the hair is there is no bald child head, so the child has that side parted hair. I wish I knew how to make him at least be the short afro child hair.

Oh, in case you're wondering on the actual name of the file, it is a hair recolor that I'd been playing around with for my Sim of Usher, but decided in the end to use it for my Kanye West Sim, lol!

I selected it as All compatablity, I think that is correct, too, even though I have both expansions.

Nice man, nice! I'm glad to see people making more ethnic hair styles. Keep up the good work!

It looks great!
Could you make some short Afro hair for women too?

Not buying TS4 until Terrain Sculpting is back and cheatless Split Levels are added!
Here's an idea: Stairs Pitch Slider.

Thanks so much for the comments! There are some short afro hair for women at Mermaid Cove:

They are nice, they are for all the ages except child and toddler girls.

Thanks for making a more realistic hairstyle for my black sim males. That has always frusturated me about the standard hairstyles...not enough variety for ethnic/black hair.

there's no file. no hair to put in game

What about the thousands of wonderful men and women who are fighting this war without any of the credit or the glory that always goes to those lucky few who just happen to get shot?
