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 my first upload - it's a recolor of one of my favorite Maxis hairstyles. The basic color here is dark blonde/light brown with added blonde highlights & darker roots.

It works well with all lighter and medium skin tones. The model shown in the pics is adult but the style is also available for teens & kids.

Dark brown version available here: http://modthesims2.com/showthread.p...8390#post628390

Wow, I love it! Would you consider doing someting like this with other hair styles, (ex: half-ponytail, straight sholder-length or ponytail)? I've been looking for something like this for a very long time, thanks!

What are your rules when it comes to reuploading and recolors? Do you allow it with credit? Very good work there! I like it! Now if you could do that same thing with long hair, it'd be like mine But you did really good! Thanks for sharing..

ps. thanks for the tip on the cars page too, about that hack being compatible with NL.

the maxis curly hair can barely be called curly- it's wavy. but great job, it's so beautiful and natural
