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.
This is a little cut and colour of an Oepu/Nouk hair. The textures are by Oepu and the mesh is by Nouk, so most of the credit goes to them. I just trimmed the bottom and darkened the colours.

This hair is available for teens, young adults, adults, and elders. It's binned and family-linked. You need the black hair for the grey elder hair to work. The mesh is 5370 polys, which is about twice as high as an average Maxis hair, but it animates beautifully and is well worth the "cost", IMHO.

The mesh is included for convenience. You can also get the mesh along with Nouk's original textures at her site.

Huge thanks to Oepu and Nouk for their wonderful work!

Hey, really nice idea and I would definitely love this, if the textures were less in the original Sims 2 look. Compared to almost every new hairstyles created these days, your creation wouldn't be used in my game. Sorry. But keep your work up and maybe you'll update your textures. I'd love that.

Oh Pam - showing the grey hair! I didn't think getting old would be her thing - but she sure ain't looking too happy. The hair is great though.

I think this hairstyle looks lovely with Maxis textures, sometimes one can over-dose on teh shiny Oh, and Nora looks gorgeous! Any chance you'll be sharing her? *wink wink nudge nudge*

Wow, thank you! :D
I always gravitate toward a Maxis look in my game, so I love these, especially with the new length. *thumbs way up*

Lovely edits! I can't get enough straight hair. I'm also one of those who prefer a more Maxis-y look to looks-like-a-bad-wig shiny, so this will be perfect in my game.

Wow, thanks everyone!

Yeah, the Maxis-match texture is the entire point of this hair. It's the only type of texture I play with, so was super thrilled to find Oepu's retexture of Nouk's mesh. You just can't beat a Nouk mesh in terms of quality and smooth animations, and you can't beat this Maxis-match texture by Oepu either. It blends perfectly with the original game content and still has good shading and highlights which many "Maxis-match" attempts don't achieve. Hopefully I didn't mess that up too badly when changing the colour to suit a certain sim.... and then changing the others to form a complete set. Of course anyone who prefers shiny hair is welcome to use Nouk's original set, which is linked in the upload description.

Nonikk: Pam was not happy at all. Poor thing never expected to age! Thank goodness for quit-without-saving.

Misty: Aww, glad you like Nora. Perhaps I might upload her someday, maybe.

*lol* @ Pam for showing grey. You're mean to her. I'd love to have Nora as well, so that's a +1. You know we all want your True Blood sims. They're all awesome. I'd love to have Tara and Jessica as well. <3

It's kind of the point though, that it's Maxis-match

Anyway, I like the hair and the elder preview is funny :D

Please visit WickedNoukFamily Forum for my creations.
Can't take requests, I'm completely swamped with unfinished projects! :O

Omigosh, it's Nouk herself! Thanks again for the gorgeous mesh, Nouk! Glad you're not offended by Oepu and myself applying a Maxis-matchy texture to it.

DutchXfan: Thank you for voting. I'll try to get them packaged for upload sometime soon.

OMG love this but your dark hair model looks so like a character from true blood, Eric's sister - for the life of me I cannot remember her name but please let me know if you ever decide to upload her. I'd have her in my tb lot anyday!
