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 mop of slightly tousled shortish hair, parted on the side for optimum comfort & style. Looks extra manly when paired with sideburns and some stubble.

All Ages -- Binned -- Family Linked -- Grey Elders -- Extra Textures Removed

You must install the black hair to get the grey elder hair.

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

Bonus! Matching Dark Brown Sideburns included! They're binned too.

Polygon Counts:
Adult hair is 1515 polys, other ages are about the same.

Additional Credits:
Special thanks to agustin for helping fix a mesh transparency issue. The mesh still isn't perfect but I think it's pretty good. Thanks also go to HystericalParoxysm for lotsa tips along the way, and to everyone who writes the tools & tutorials that make this stuff possible, and to MTS2 for hosting us all!

Just yesterday I was wishing for more normal looking men's hair, squee! It's different enough from the other hair I have, and binned, and one grey, and compressed. Happy dance.

Boy Hair! I love you forever for providing such wonderful boyhair! Now even fewer of my sims have to be subjected to poofy girl hair!

OMG this is perfect! Do you possess mind reading abilities or something? Yesterday, I was thinking that I wanted a hair EXACTLY like this! Thanks a lot!

Thank you sooo much!!! =)

I know this is a really awkward request, but is there anyway you could flip the hair so the part is on the other side?

This is mainly because I've been trying to make a certain Sim from a movie for months now and this hair is absolutely perfect except for that one detail. D:

If not, it's all good. Thanks for the awesome manly-man hair!

Please, please, please, will you share Bill with us? Please, do! I'm dying to have a Maxis-match bill in my game. He's awesome! - Finds for The Sims 3 & The Sims 2.

That looks like the guy from True Blood! I think, I havent watched the show, but ive seen pictures! Anyway, nice hair! I love it!
#21 Old 5th Mar 2009 at 11:32 PM
Default just right
I have been on a desperate search for the right tousled male hair. The "asian-style" moussed messes just don't do it for me. I like this, because it looks like the fellow tried to comb his hair but got distracted -- exactly how I like my men . . .
#22 Old 5th Mar 2009 at 11:49 PM
Very cute, indeed! Thank you so much for sharing with us.

I love this hair! His hair also reminds me of the husband from Medium- Joe Very very cool!
thank you vera vera much!

Ummmm say, do you have Bill ready to upload?

When in doubt, use clean installer

Thanks so much! Hair for the fellows is harder to find, and this is a nice cut that doesn't look too feminine. My Sim boys need the variety!

skye: Ooh you're right, it does kind of look like Joe's hair! I love Joe.

BeingNectarine: Ironically, I flipped a Maxis female hair to make this one because my sim needed the part on this side. I would love to do a version with the part on the other side for ya, but it's quite a bit of work and I just don't see myself getting to it anytime soon. Perhaps you'd like the straight female-to-male conversion available here? It's not quite the same as this one, since I changed the shape and cut to make it more boyish, but you might like it anyway.

Thanks again for all the nice comments, guys!

Oh and to everyone who asked, Bill isn't ready to be shared just yet. I gotta make a Sookie and play with test them some more first. .
