Short Stuff -- female to male hair conversion

This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
I saw a women's hairstyle in CAS while I was doing something else and thought two things immediately:
1. How cute is THAT!
2. I bet it's not available for men.

Sadly, I was correct. After looking around for it and not finding a conversion, I then decided that the only solution was to convert the hair on my own. It took a few days and some stress eating, but I did it! And it looks GREAT on guys!



This is a strictly Maxis-match hair, so textures and colors are exactly the same as the female hair. All 18 bin colors are included with appropriate swatch. The files are divided into "naturals," "brights" (the five dyed colors) and an "all" package that contains all 18 colors. Of course, if you want to make more colors or retexture it, be my guest!

I hope you and your Sim guys enjoy it!

Thank you very much! I was waiting for someone to do this.
It's very strange that this hair is only for females.

This was long overdue. I'm loving it. Any chance you can work on the big afro and convert it for guys?

Very strange that little thought was given to making this available for males from the very beginning. This is strongly needed and looks great in game. Thank you. Keep up the great work.

The mod is great, but has been crashing my game. Have you updated your mesh to the new specs?
