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.
**Update** Feb. 27 2009 Added Ricebowl (Click for picture) Mesh included, thanks to melodie9! and
Simple-straight (Click for picture, and mesh!) Since this was a toddler only hair to start, there was no grey maxis texture for me to link it to, therefore a grey texture is included in this package!
They both had some conflict with other hairs, due to having the same family group. They both come with an extra package file to fix the issue.

**Update** Added Rocker (Click for picture) and
Shortgel (Click for picture) Meshes now included.
They both had some conflict with other hairs, due to having the same family group. They both come with an extra package file to fix the issue.

Linked to the maxis textures.
Family linked to all ages and colors.
Genetically modified: black and brown are more dominant than blond and red.
Properly binned.
Shows up as base game maxis content. (The delete button is still enabled *do not delete any of these hairs*)

Meshes included thanks to melodie9!
These files will not replace, nor conflict with melodie9's files.
Only blond is pictured, but all four colors are included for all hairs.

All files compressed using The Compressorizer!

*The hairs "Short" and "Shortcombed" had some conflict with other hairs, due to having the same family group. These two .rars come with an extra package file to fix the issue.

Thanks a lot. I really love all your male and female conversions. It always used to bother me that the best haircuts were never available for all ages. Great job!

i was wondering if you plan doing the Cross Conversion meshes too? (like seasons sweep hair for guys)

Thanks so much for making an all file, and thanks so much doing this and sharing. I love more diversity in hair styles for the younger sims, but I hated the previous huge file sizes. Your effort is greatly appreciated.

What is the difference btwn your version of the "Messy" hair, and the one gwillewyn has here:

I noticed that they use the same meshes, but while gwillewyn has just one package for the textures, you have one file for each colour. I just need to know which version I should keep. lol

eta: I also noticed an overlap in the Female "rosette" hairstyle and the male "Dreadlocklong".

I think the only difference is what you said about gwillewyn's being in one file. I personally just prefer each color to have a separate package. Up to you which one to use, I don't think there's any other difference.

I don't know what you mean about an "overlap" of female "rosette" and male "dreadlocklong," could you elaborate? Are they my files, or gwillewyn's? or a conflict between both?

Sorry, I just meant that there was the same repitition of those hairstyles btwn your work and hers. Now that I read what I said, I notice that I didn't really make much sense at all! What I meant was that the two of you had done the same hairstyles (which you maybe already knew).

It isn't a problem; I just decided to keep one and delete the other. Don't know what would have happend if I'd kep them both? lol

By the way, I love the work you've done here (and in your other similar threads). This is amazing and really helps keep things tidier in Body Shop and CAS. Thanks soooo much!
