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 soon as I saw Nouk's hair, I wanted to recolour it...But since Nouk makes all hair colours look natural already, I figured I wanted to change it a bit more.
So what I did was make minor adjustments to the hair colour itself, then I shortened the ponytail (only a bit, its not that noticable) and removed the bangs.
You have to go download Nouk's own hair (link below) for this to show up in game


Additional Credits:
Thanks very much to Nouk for making the original hairstyle
Its wonderful and looks great on basically ALL of my sims...seriously! You're amazing!

Can you post your beautiful African American model? If not, can you post her skin tone? I don't have one that's so dark yet defined. Thanks too for the reworking of this great mesh!! A very platinum blond version would be great if you take suggestions!!
#3 Old 18th Mar 2007 at 10:09 PM
Thank you for making recolors without the hair pieces in the way! They're beautiful!

These are great. It's good to have two versions of the hair for the simmies that don't like bangs
#5 Old 18th Mar 2007 at 10:25 PM
The blonde one looks so snazzy, I think I'll download it. :D

Is it properly binned?
#6 Old 18th Mar 2007 at 10:43 PM
Its pretty hard to find good recolours...usually the blond is icky or the red is unnaturaly fake or bla bla...but these are PERFECT! well done *downloads all* :D
#7 Old 18th Mar 2007 at 11:51 PM
You've done a very nice job on the recolor, I like it. Thank you.

usually I just LOVE nouk's job, but this time you manage to do better!!! I definatly prefer this haircut without bangs [sorry nouk, I still admire and love your creations!!!] and the shorter ponytail... ^^
thank you for sharing!!! =D

#13 Old 19th Mar 2007 at 3:31 AM
Those are very pretty recolors, I really like the light brown and red hair.

Please do not re-upload my houses or Sims anywhere, even if it is just refurnished.

Thank you for your consideration.
#14 Old 19th Mar 2007 at 6:38 AM
I really love the red... my natural redheads were a little dissappointed by the original. Thanks!

no, sadly it is not binned
I don't know how to bin properly (and I'm too lazy to learn how lol)

I should be able to post the model
The skintone is by sera ( and is on one of her models
I'll try posting the model too though
And I'm going to make a few more colours (dark brown, platinum blonde, light brown), so I'll add those once they're finished

hehe i've put Celeste to work already lol

I'm just getting started on some additional shades right now, you'll most likely see them within the week

edit: colours made, just need pics and I'll post them
I made a dark brown, a platinum blonde and a platinum blonde with black ends

Thanks so much, it looks great without the bangs!
#24 Old 3rd Jul 2007 at 6:29 PM
I'm thrilled with this too. I absolutely love the original but since I hate my bangs in my eyes in real life, it was sort of bugging me with my sims too. I've always loved the look of long bangs but paradoxically want to keep pushing them out of the way and generally strangers object when you walk up to them with a pair of scissors. So I have some of my sims with the bangs and some without. I have entire sims families of women wearing this hair. (oh I hope Nouk isn't offended that some of us like it without the bangs)

I'm eleven hundred and twenty-years-old, jus' gimme' a frikkin' beer!

Yay! I was going to do this, but it was so much harder than I expected! And you did it a lot neater than I ever would/could! (Plus, now I can make sim-self! Yay!) Thanks for shortening it a little bit too! I love minor differences, it's the small details that make the game fun.

Oh, you may know how to do this by now, and I don't know if it's easy, but here is a tutorial on how to change it to the proper bins using SimPe:
