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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I love the shape of the Maxis Floppy hair, but the textures are rather flat and unappealing. After several retexturing efforts that failed to make the hair more presentable, I decided to make a new mesh, since several of my male sims desperately needed a hair with parted bangs.

The hair is for adults only and comes in five colors, all binned. The colors are labelled in the file so you can delete the ones you don't want.

Top


Front


Different Colors and Angles (there are two shades that are binned as brown, a dark and a light shade)


*Edit: I forgot to add, feel free to make recolors, use my textures, and include the hair with uploaded sims. (with the exception of reuploading to paysites, of course)

Polygon Counts:
3624 Faces
2784 Vertices

I like this hair very much. But to get to just one recolor, I have to download the rest too(and it's like 6.11 MB). If you would be so kind to just package each recolor separately, it would be very much appreciated.

Does anyone else think the first picture looks a LOT like Basshunter in Angels In The Night? I couldn't help but notice that! They look nice!

To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand
