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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
As the title says, this is a very simple recolor (no retexturing) of that OFB hairstyle Andie kindly converted for men (with animation, too!).
You need to download the mesh from the link below (mts link).

I called it "EMO hairs" 'cos it reminds me of those emo hairstyles some of my friends have n_n

I made this recolor since I don't like a lot the Maxis one, especially for blond and red colors.
Hope you will like my version too <3

All the hairs are in the right color bin, wich means that blond is in the blond hair category and matches with blond eyebrows, and so on.
There are two types of blond and two of brown, so you will have two recolors in the blond bin and two in the brown bin.
Thanks a lot to Callum for her (erm.. his) great tutorial!!

(uh, and, sorry for the screens, they're horrible, I know )

Colors:

Maxis color VS Stella recolor:



bai-bai ^w^


Since this was requested by someone, a female version of this recolor is up.
EliValentine made it and RMarques binned it. Thanks a lot!!

I love the Maxis VS Stella screen shot. It's cute and a little snarky.

Can you recolor it this way for woman too. It's great, but I prefer this hairstyle on my girls.

nicely done. I love the way that you show the comparison to the standard maxis colour so we can really see how much more natural yours look.

Thank you soooo much! The Maxis blond and red hair bugs me, too, so I really appreciate the time you put into these.

Y'know, if the texture files are the same as those for the women's hair, you can easily export the one for women, and then just copy the male texture files over. Then the girls can have these great colors, too! (But I'm sure you thought of that already...)

Lmao, this is awesome. And I thank you forever for using the word "emo." It's great, so much better than the maxis defaults. Love you! :D

As far as I know, it doesn't - you better ask Andie tho, since the mesh is her

Ah, really? I've never used this for my ladies :D
I can do it, the textures should be the same.
Or, if someone want to use these textures to make the female version and post it here, it's not a problem to me

thanks everybody

Yeah, I would really like that cos I'm not computer savvy at all and I have no idea what the differnce between textures and meshes is! And I use this for my pixie boho ladies. In the Edie Sedgewick/ Sienna Miller style
