This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Yes, before anyone asks, I know that out-of-control facial hair is not limited to Portugal, and that Portuguese men can be perfectly groomed. However, this download was inspired by... certain persons (Figo and Mourinho, I’m looking at you) for whom the neat Maxis stubble was not enough.

As you can see, this is just a slight alteration of the Maxis textures – it goes further up the cheeks, and covers the whole chin. I made five shades of black – no other colours, or it would have got a bit overwhelming. It does not replace the default.

Shiya, I know this is like a year late, but the hairline originally came from the EyeCandy forums. I don't think it's there any more, and I can't find it at the Sims 2 Graveyard either.

Loved the name you gave to the beard xD And yes most of the men from Portugal (I'm portuguese so I can confirm) are quite relaxed towards everything, so yeah beards are no exception :P
