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.
I was about to reconsider uploading these when I realised how many recolors were already available for this mesh, but I think these are sufficiently different to warrant the upload.

I edited the alpha and textures to give a fuller/thicker look to the hair. They are all color binned and the colors stay the same for all ages.

Feel free to edit my alpha's and textures as well as redistribute and upload these recolors with your sims.

You need the XM Sims mesh for this to work find it here .

I reallly like what you did with the meshes textures and alphas, I didn't download the original, but I like what you have done and I am definitely downloading these. Thanks

I'm back, trying make a name for myself in the sims community. I'm going to try to match up the meshes with the content I previously made so I can share it with everyone :]. I wish my username didn't suck so much, I think I'll make a new one for the sims 3 :]

I was going to recolor these for myself with a black hairband... but now I don't have to. I love your alpha edit and colors as well, especially the blond. Wicked job! Thanx

I'm glad you uploaded these. I wasn't going to download this mesh or any recolors but you made me change my mind

If you love something, set it free.
If it doesn't come back,
hunt it down and kill it.

Very cute - I was planning to alpha edit like that when I make a streaked version but without the bow. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thought the bangs were a little weak!

Despite the many recolors, I honestly think this is my favorite out of all of them. It's full, natural, and thicker.

Great job, I was thinking of making a recolor of this mesh as well, but yours just does the trick; you basically read my mind. Thank you dear! <3 Beautiful work.
