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.
Five red and a mid-brown recolor of the fabulous long, flowing hair mesh with animated flyers from Rose Sims2. The two short strands of hair at the top of the face are animated as is the long strand that hangs over the ears. These are simple recolors of Rose's textures with original alphas. Thank you, Rose, for allowing me to do these recolors.

These recolors were done for the Natural Redhead Project to make more hairstyles available in the many beautiful naturally occurring shades of red hair. The red recolors are available in five shades: auburn, dark copper, copper, ginger and strawberry blonde. There is also a rich shade of mid-brown. The recolors are all color binned. It may seem odd to put shades that range from rusty blonde to brown red in the red bin but the goal is to make the full spectrum of red shades available to genetic redheads.

This shoulder length style comes in toddler through elder. The elder hair comes in four shades: brown has a brown salt and pepper while auburn has a darker salt and pepper, copper and dark copper come with a silver beige, and the ginger and strawberry blonde come with an ivory white shade. The toddler hair is the longish, straight Maxis hair with bangs. I recolored the toddler hair to match the other ages' color.

Mesh Information: The mesh comes with 5 colors at Rose Sims2 in Download > Hair. It is currently on page 10. The file to download is The name of the unipped mesh file is MESH_RoseHair_0069.package.

These recolors may only be used in Sims distributed by 100% free sites. Do not distribute or include the mesh in any uploads! Link to the and provide directions on how to locate the mesh in the Downloads > Hair.

FYI - the custom content in the photo's models are free downloads unless noted:
The freckle and eye set is from Alkaloid at Insimenator,

The skin used is JWilson5's Hairy Male Skins for Redheads. The skin for the normal Maxis body type doesn't require any additional meshes, just download the Norm-HairyRed-Barbie.rar file for hairy, SKN-Norm-XhairyRed-Barbie.rar for extra hairy and SKN-Norm-XXhairyRed-Barbie.rar for extremely hairy ( Not to worry, only the guys come with body hair).

The child and teen sweaters are from Rabid Angel's Weekend at the Lodge series at Sims Connection . The child sweaters are free but the teen sweaters are a premium download.

The eyebrows are by Helaene and converted to default eyebrows by Sciberg at ModTheSims2
