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.
jaunty beret with long hair (wavy or straight)

The hair is nicely tucked under the beret, so it doesn't eat the hat.
This is a hair mesh and recolors, not an accessory!
Hat shows in everyday, outerwear. Long, poufy hair shows in swim/undie/pj/athletic/formal.
Tiny, tiny, itty bitty little files!

If you want the accessory or BV jewelry versions, get them here.

beret + longsimple hair (straight)
available in grey (shown), pink, black with feathers, and cream/red flower

beret + long hair (wavy)
available in green (shown), white, red with feathers, and blue/white flower

Binned & Familified, 4 hair colors + 1 Grey
Each hat color comes in four hair colors (black, brown, blond, red) and one grey.
Geneticized, black and brown dominant over blond and red.
Available for child through elder (thought it would look odd on toddlers).
Uses my own meshes for child no-hat hair, so melodie9 or others not required.

Want more hat colors? I only made 8 hat colors, but I'm giving
you all my hat textures so you can make more if you want to.
If you do, please, PLEASE don't make huge bloated recolor files!
I made software that will bin, familify, and debloat beret recolors.

DBPF C++ library
If you're a tool maker and write in C++, perhaps my DBPF library
may be of some use to you. I used it to write the beret hair debloater.
