This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description 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.
Here's a little age conversion of my fave male hair that came with OFB. Now kids and tots can wear it too! Yay!


  • Binned: Red is in the red bin, black is in the black bin, etc.

  • Maxis-Linked: The 4 Maxis colours don't include any textures. They're linked to the Maxis textures instead, for smaller files and better quality. The 2 bonus browns do have textures.

  • De-Customized: The 4 Maxis colours have the OFB logo instead of a CC star. The 2 bonus browns have the CC star.

  • Toddler/Child + Teen Fix Only: No extra meshes or recolours here. You just get the toddler & child hair which blend seamlessly with the Maxis teen/adult/elder hair. I also made a little default-replacement to fix a hole in the teen forehead, but you shouldn't really notice that. I is nitpicky.

  • Family Linked: Flip between colours and ages without reverting to another mesh.

  • Polygon Count: 804

  • Compressed with jfade's Compressorizer to reduce filesize. Thanks jfade!

  • OFB Required


Known Issue:
When sims have a birthday in-game, this hair reverts to another Maxis hair. It's probably some sort of family number conflict. It works fine in CAS and Bodyshop though, and to be honest, I always give my sims a makeover on their birthday anyway. You probably do too. So I opted to just leave it alone instead of fiddling with frustration.


Recolours Available:
I had previously recoloured this hair twice. Now I've updated those recolours for the kiddos. You can get them here:

Just want to say how great it is to see the browns! A variety of good browns is rare, and you've hit them off beautifully.

Thank you so much. I don't really like TS3, so I just reinstalled my TS2 and I am very happy with all your hair. I downloaded everything...
