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.
Update Aug 3, 2008: Thanks to Avaluna for reminding me to do the non-default version of this hair. Both the Maxis colors and dyed colors are available from teen to elder. The Maxis colors are binned, and the black recolor is binned for elders.

In another part of my "I would like this a whole lot better if..." series, I've alpha-ed out the bangs of this formerly terrible hairstyle. It looks a lot better now.

These are replacements for the hair; all ages [teen/adult/elder] and colors [maxis + 4 custom] for this hairstyle are replaced. The dyed colors have been toned down a bit to electric blue, dark pink, purple, and auburn. The Maxis colors have not been altered.

I haven't altered the mesh, so anything you dislike about it is still there. Any other recolors of this hairstyle will not be affected.

iasjdijdas THANK YOU. The bangs drove me crazy. I may even consider plopping this on some of my bolder and more 'innovative' townies now.

I really like the original and see nothing "terrible" about the bangs, but, your alpha edit is nice, too. It would be nice if you would upload a non-default set as well for those of us that do not wish to replace the original hairstyle. Thanks.

Great idea! That's one of the styles that never seems to work on any of my sims. Thanks for turning it into a hairstyle I can actually use.

Wow. I never thought this hair could look good, but without the bangs it's actually flattering. Fantastic job, thanks for sharing!

If only I could combine this with this:

(As it is, I actually have a non-default edit of the hair onto melodie9's meshes in my game already -- I made it myself ages ago, having yoinked the alpha off a hair I downloaded somewhere -- so I'll live without, but I'd nab the defaults in a heartbeat if they didn't conflict.)

Do I have to download all the files, or just the first 'replacement' file for this to work (as in, I want it to look like it does in your pictures)? I would *love* to have this alpha-edit as a default - the original is a mess!

For the replacement, just download the first zip. If you want just regular ol' recolors, download the second and/or the third zip.
