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.
Okay, this is a simple file switch i did.

You need the mesh for this hair you can find it here
credit goes to callum91 for the mesh

The color of the hair is done by SimplyStella you can find the male recolor(just in case) here credit to her for the texture.

I am sorry for the quality of the pictures, just when i was about to upload them i noticed they where bitmaps, and they where too big so i saved them as GIF and... the color got really messed up.(I hope this doesn't sort of kill the whole thing). i am SO sorry....

The mesh only needs the original game, but i have Uni, nightlife, and OFB.
Also, these recolors are not in the right colorbins, i guess i'll leave someone the challenge to do that, because I don't have enough time to do that myself.

any problems, contact me.
Thanks to callum91, SimplyStella, and Andie for their awesome work.

RMarques uploaded a colorbinned version in these following posts for those who would like these in their proper color bins.(for all of you newbies, color bined means that black colored hair appears into the black bin and not the custom bin, same goes for all colors.)
thank you RMarques
and everyone that kindly posted.

Hi there EliValentine213.

Well you said you'd leave the challenge to someone else, so I'm assuming this is ok. I binned the recolors, and I'm uploading them in this post for those that want them like that, if you have any objections, say so, and I'll remove them And these don't have duplicates of the colots on the elders for those that don't download binned hairs because of that
