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.
Absolutely nothing to do with Wallace and Gromit. Sorry folks!

So hi! I've been working on this upload for many months, and now its all sorted its time to upload. I started making this as an extension of my previous set 'BarbersCut', and as that was so popular here, am uploading these as a special set to MTS2. This is a big set of stylish and normal facial hair, for the sim guys!

I've broken the sets down into RARs for their types, so there are three downloads to download/chose to download:

Stubble RAR
This contains Cayo, Lope, Ruben and Naldo. These stubbles range in thickness and..fuzziness. Not binned, as personally I like having different coloured stubble to the main hair. Appear under the 'Stubbles' category.



Moustache RAR
This contains Ado, Manoel and Vincent. These took a lot of revising to get them looking ok, so thank you to those in the Feedback area who helped. Aim of these was for them to add character and quirkiness to a sims face. These are not binned. Appear under the 'Beards' category.


(Hilarious moustache model is hilarious)

SideBurn RAR
This contains Abele, Fausto, Liborio and Ilario. These four sideburns vary in length and width. A personal peeve of mine is sideburns not matching hair colour, so I've binned these...if you want them unbinned, then download and reimport them, and delete the originals. So are binned. Appear under the 'Beards' category.



All of the sets come in the same four colours. All these colours are shown in the preview pictures. I tried to make the textures, and colours, realistic without looking too out of place in Maxis Match styled games. All the sets are for teen, adult and elders. All the sets have greys for elders.

Wow, there's so much chioce here! Any chance of a more traditional style of sideburn joining the pack in the near future? I can get a full blown mutton chop type or these lovelies but not a simple style (like Josh Holloway or David Tennant.)

Thank you for the great facial hair.
I started binning the moustaches with the Wardrobe Wrangler, and saw that none of them were enabled for outerwear. The sideburns weren't either. I guess it means that when the guy goes out in the snow, he loses the moustache/sideburn?

Hi Gwenke, I do not have Seasons myself so can not enable them for outerwear. I presume you could do this yourself though.

You are welcome to bin them yourself. Binning is quick to do once you know how! I do not personally want them binned, so will not be binning them myself.

Hrm I'll have a look at that, but no promises at all. If I feel inspired with it I'll have a go.

And thank you for the comments and thanks. Am glad you like this set

Yes, I do this myself, it is really very easy with the Wardrobe Wrangler. I believe even if you enabled what you upload for outerwear, you could use them without Seasons with no problem, so you might want to check it out.
