This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Earrings from, in case anyone wants them

- hairband is not removable this time.

All ages

Seven colors(Added two blondes)

Thanks to:
- Dr_Pixel and Wes_H and SkankyBoy and Milkshape dude and SimPE dude for providing the tools!

Please read
- Don't upload unless you actually recolor and/or retexture.
- Recolor, retexture and stuff, but don't edit the mesh.
