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.
I thank Velvetcube/Simmergirl for her tutorial and her efforts in making the female styles available for males. As such I've unlocked the Jeanette hairstyle to be usable by men. And unlike the other female-> male hair conversions, this style turns out to allow for a nearly smooth transition, with only slight flaws in the fitting.

(However, the long hair only shows on adults and elders. Teen males have a short, messy cut.)

Here are some screenshots, at different angles show show the relatively neat fit. I've also include the file of the hair, usable by both genders. I've made no changes to the texture or alpha maps yet. This file just adds the option for males to use the Jeanette Biedermann hair too.

*Update*: As requested, added more colors than the default dark blond. Black, a Reddish-Brown, Pale-blond, White, and Scarlet red.

Alphas still have not been changed.

Thanks everyone. Although I don't feel I deserve the glowing praise but I do appreciate it. I merely changed the tag for gender to both female and male, following Velvetcube's directions.

Here's a link to her site where I found the tutorial (And it's probably somethere in the forums here too.):

http://simmergirl.com/default.asp

I initially did it for myself, but knew those looking for long hair for males would probably enjoy it too. It was merely meant to be a base for the community to work with.

And sorry about the confusion about the mesh. In my excitement over unlocking the lowerbody skin-tight mesh for adult males and doing this I didn't think about what the whole of what package files actually included. So it's likely that the Jeanette Beidermann hair *mesh* must be downloaded from elsewhere (the link posted earlier in the thread. Thanks.) before this file will work.

The file size seemed rather large and since the hair isn't available to men normally, I assumed the mesh was carried over in the package after the conversion. Thinking on it now, it's probably that once one has a mesh loaded, only one instance of it is needed and any 'conversions' of female to male, or vice-versa, are just the textures and other necessary files being directed to it where they hadn't been before. <shrug> Sorry again.

As for other hair colors... I made several since I posted this, but the alphas haven't been altered yet to give them a better look. It's not as easy to see with the blond since it's close to the skintone of the head, but there's a small hole on the right side where the hair hangs along the forehead.

It looks fixable by playing with the alpha map, as do most of the other slight abnormalities. There's at least 5 files each for texture and alpha maps in this hair style, and I haven't had the time to play with them yet.

But if you want them, I will post all the colors I have to give you all something to work with. Just know they're basic and need some editting to give them a better fit. I'll get around to it myself eventually, but until then have at it. Actually, have at it anyway.

Can someone make that for teens? For some reason the mesh is only for adults and elders and teens have that stupid short cut

I quote Neemeister:

"(However, the long hair only shows on adults and elders. Teen males have a short, messy cut.)"

And this is a great thingy-ma-bob, thanks!
