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.
I really like this simple, long and sleek new hair at Coolsims. I retextured it and removed the small flyaway strands to make this hair really neat, shiny and smooth.

The hair comes in 9 colours- black, brown-black, dark brown, light brown, blond, platinum blond, dark red, light red and one grey. The hair is available for ages child-elder (it was too long and looked odd on toddlers).

The files are:

- Compressed
- Clearly named
- Binned and familied (darks with darks + grey, lights with lights)
- retextured with Pooklet's edit of Nouk's textures.

The mesh is included with permission.

I like the alpha edit you did, because it makes the hair more simple and real. Thanks!

I don't take requests. :-)

I don't know why anyone's having trouble downloading. I just tried and it downloaded fine. Do you have win rar?

I downloaded it and then went into my game, and it's not showing up. I'm not sure what happened. It's pictured as one of the ugly MAXIS hairs. Neither your, nor the original mesh hair shows up.

Nice job. In case anyone is wondering (one year later), the mesh is cool sims 74, not 73.
