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, so please be gentle. Five recolours of Cevic's lovely True Elegant Curly Hair V2, consistent for all ages.
Mesh found here.

Colours include Strawberry Blonde, Brunette, Light Blonde, Blue-Black and Real Red.

Thankyou Cevic!

I updated the files, I hope they work now, sorry for the inconvenience!

Default just wondering about the skin
is the skin on the sim naturally freckled, or is that makeup? if it is genetic, could you please tell me where i could get it? btw, the recolor looks great.

I don't know why, but the recolors are not working for me. I put them in my download folder as usual, checked in Clean Installer and they are definitely in the folder, but unlike every other hair I ever downloaded (about 500 files, more or less), these recolors don't appear in my game, and yes, I have Cevic's V2 mesh and it works great. Any idea why they are not showing?

That's very strange... do you have University? I do, so maybe that's causing some kind of problem?

I have uni for four months now. I think my prolem might have something to do with the file names. Usually they come with numbers, etc. Maybe my game doesn't recognize that they are hair files because of their names, but I've never experienced that problem before with other files, so I don't know.

That's really strange... I might see if Faith is right, it has to do with the filenames. I'll redo them in Bodyshop with different names and see if it helps.

Sorry about this!

ETA: I think I know what the problem was, I uploaded the wrong files (so dopey). I updated the zip, thanks for your patience.

I am having the same problem...I thought it was just me. I too have university and have noticed that every once in a while some meshes or re-colours just do not appear in my other example of this is the jeanette b mesh. That mesh no matter how many times I download and re download will just not show up in my game..It's crazy i tells

Well, now I can't download it anyway First the hair colors didn't appear in my game even if I have the mesh and put it in the right folder. You have removed the zip file or something cause there's no link. Please fix it!

I also have uni, and they didn't show up in my game either. I see that you made a correction, but there is no link to download anything. I'll be back, because I want these sooooooo bad.

Nevermind, I see it say Attachment pending approval, but I will still be back :bump:
