Well, I'm working on a new sim, and she needed a new hair mesh, so here ya go. I thought it'd be cute in other colours and stuff so I went and did it up as a whole mesh. "Kara" is a short spunky layered hairstyle for females.

It is available for all ages: toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult, and elder, with the same colours for all ages (no grey elders!)

I have uploaded the mesh separately from the recolours: make sure you grab both files! The contents are labeled so you can delete any recolours you don't want. All shades have fixed brow colours (black for wine, blonde for the white, all appropriate brows for the natural colours) and the natural shades work genetically, in the correct colour bins.

944 polygons, 649 vertices (low, good for lower-end systems but with high-res textures - now with smaller, more efficient packages than my previous texture snobbery - so it'll look pretty too).

Please don't comment if you're just going to request something: I don't take requests unless otherwise noted.

Model Credits: Rebecca is a new and unreleased model. She wears Enayla skin, Barcelonista shadow, eyes by me, blush by Helaene, and I'm pretty sure those freckles are just part of the skintone. I may have added some. Dunno. I'll upload her soon. She's awfully cute, isn't she?
