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.

Mansion & Garden Stuff came with a decent mesh and texture for curly hair. Unfortunately their "brown" looked red to me. I got annoyed and adjusted the color / contrast / saturation etc until I got something I liked. I made two different versions and binned them for convenience. I wasn't actually going to upload it until someone asked me to. So here they are. They are very similar in color, but they were different enough for me to notice.

This is NOT a default replacement. Just a couple extra options if you don't like the Maxis version.

su_AMbrnM&GScurly1 First recolor. Less red than the Maxis version.
su_AMbrnM&GScurly2 Second recolor. Darker and even less red.

Huge Thanks to Fanseelamb for helping me find the Mansion and Garden Hair Fix by Atreya that made the various ages for the hair export all at once

The Sim model is Josh Groban by naberyll. (Instead of the Alabaster skin that naberyll used, I changed it to Pixie Light by Enayla).

Thank you... I love curly hair in males, but there are hardly any available for downloading. This one was really nice, but too red... until now
