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.
UPDATED on September 18th, 2006
Male v.2 (new alpha) + Female

I got a request by livvywu to convert my retextures for female Sims. I realized that the alpha is not only different, but it also looks better on my computer (because it's old). I have left the first version just in case. However, I highly recommend the second one, because all recolors now have the same family GUID: when you change the color, it keeps the same hairstyle -- it doesn't revert to Maxis's one so you don't have to search through the recolors again.

The four main colors are binned; the white color will show under "Custom". The black one has the elder color (same as white). All ages, eventually.

Since I changed the description of my upload, I also replaced the old pictures with new ones~! They look better in my opinion. :D

Old version (different alpha which doesn't look too good on my computer)

Huge thanks for Flora (XM Sims2) for the lovely mesh! Download the mesh on page 35 for males and page 36 for females. I'd also like to thanks Theo for his awesome Color Binning Tool plugin

Please don't redistribute them anywhere else!

I should have waited longer.. I want these! I've used XM's textures of this hair on SOOOO many Sims (basically all my male sims look the same now) I don't want to change all their hair.. I need a patience.. anyone have extra?

I'll download it anyways :D

Default Amazing
I think this hair is H-O-T HOT!!!! The recolors are really good, the hair looks like it would be difficult to recolor. (Not that I would really know considering the only hair I have ever made is funny and a real kicker it is just red streaks that took about ten seconds....) Thanks dir uploading it I really like it a lot!!

Can't say no to already binned hair and got white too for my Drow sims. Perfect.
