I always liked this hairstyle, especially on children and teens. I have no idea why it was hidden, let alone that it eventually disappeared from the catalog altogether. Well, now it's back!

Using SimPe, I tracked down its property sets for the various colors and ages, verified they were family linked, and flagged each as a normal, unhidden, spawnable ("townified") hairstyle.

The "Gibs" hair is by EA/Maxis.

~For child, teen, young adult, adult, and elder males.
~Can be worn with all outfits, including Outerwear.
~Displays near the end of the catalog.
~File compressed with jfade's Compressorizer.

Why EA would hide this is beyond me. Thanks for unhiding.

This hairstyle was obtainable (in my game atleast :D) if you set your toddlers to have the OFB bear/frog hat and when they grew up they would have this hidden hair :P

That's actually what I used to do before I made this mod! In fact, the green-skinned child model wore the OFB hat as a toddler. (Well, the original Sim did, since I had to rebuild.)

Way too convoluted, annoying method to obtain a hairstyle. Even worse than dealing with the Medium Center Part hair and the pink Bucket Hat.

Yeah! It's back!! I had this hair once a long time ago, but it had since been lost. Thank you so very much for bringing back this hair.

Thank you for unhiding it, and thanks to magicslippers for the bear/frog toddler hat trick, I didn't know that

Kevin Beare has this hairstyle, and there's a hat that you can access that will use this hairstyle for all outfits besides everyday and outerwear, but you can't switch it to this hairstyle for everyday-wear and outerwear without this mod, or with that toddler hat trick.

Romeo Monty also has this hairstyle when he's not wearing his everyday-wear. I used the Sim Modder, and the toddler hat trick to give Romeo this hairstyle without the hat.

I like this hairstyle, and it is an excellent beta companion for the hairstyle that John Burb has in the Sims 2. It would be cool if there was a mod that would do the same with the beta pigtails hairstyle that Calpurnia Caesar has.

Is this any different than the hair called "shortsimple" found here ? Just want to make sure I don't end up downloading the same thing twice!

Yes it is different but similar.
