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.
You've probably seen hair like this before. There are many versions of it floating around. They're all nice, but too shiny or streaky for my tastes. I like Maxis-match stuff. So I grabbed my favourite alpha from a really old starsims hairdo (like, so old it's no longer on that site) and gave it a Maxis-match texture. Yay! :D

Huge thanks to Stella at starsims for the great alpha and for permission to post this hair. I shortened it a bit for the "short" version, but the "long" version is pretty much all Stella's alpha.

Colour Binned. Child - Elder. Elders are not grey. Base Game Maxis Mesh. No EPs required.

Update: Oopsie! I forgot to delete the purple toddler hair before (it wasn't proper purple, just a fugly Maxis default style) so I've fixed that now. Please redownload if you want the new improved purple. It's a nicer shade too, yay!

Update #2: More colours here! Triple yay!

Great job as always, you're the number one sources for our male sims to actually look like males.

Heheh, purple... awesome job! They all look great!*downloads*

PS- You'll be getting a box of cookies delivered to you (chocolate chip as requested) if you make a red like HP said.

I love this hair! Especially because, as other people've said, it's rare to get male hair that LOOKS like male hair. So yeah, thanks bunches!

Thanks, many times over. I've downloaded a bunch of your stuff, but I know I've forgotten to click the thank you button several times in the rush to get to the next cool thing. So GREAT BIG THANKS for all your great stuff.
