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.
This is a recolour of one of my favourite hairmeshes (and my first recolour of hair at all...)!

I love Nouk´s versions but I just tought it woul be nice to have some hairs without the band to match sim´s clothing better. So I took Nouk´s original texture, re-arrange and recolour it again.
I hope you like them!



Four Colours, all ages, binned!

Black - very dark with little silver/gray highlights
Brown - warm, light and caramel colour
Blond - redish, brownish blonde
Red - kind of bright and shiny ruby or crimson, very artificial

Please download the meshes! You can find them here!!!


Now gray Hair fixed! Please redownload!



Standing ovations goes to: Nouk for letting me use her wanderful mesh, alpha and texture!

I'd never thought this hair would look that good without the hairband. Pretty great job!!

nice, It looks really cute this way too. The red looks a little too fire engine and not orange enough for me though.

I tought the same way, but them I tried three slimmer bands and mentioned that the hair looks pretty enough withot it. So played around withe Nouk´s texture and got to this.

There seems to be more who think like you. But this artificial red is my favourite kind of red and would be the colour I would pick f I had to choose. But maybe I will make another red which is more like a carrot and less like a fire engine.

First I habe an advice to all who already downloaded the hair: Plese redownlot it, because I made a mistake while binning them. They gray hair was the "fire engine red" one! Now I fixed it and the greys are black, brown, blonde and red. (´Cause I don´t like gray hair.)

Sed but true. Most players seem to like the same celebs hair over and over again. If you want more ethnic stuff, I have some links:
