This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
The other day I was making a gif for gdayars awesome Dress a Bear-creation, and I wanted a cute hairstyle to put on my model Sim to go with the cute dress by gdayars, and in the end I fell for a hair mesh by Rose. But I didn't like the recolors I had for it, so I went ahead and made my own pooklet recolors for it. I think it came out cute so I decided to upload it.

Pooklet scheme
As usual I have made this in the Pooklet colors I use.

Family 1: Dynamite, Depth Charge, Incendiary, Explosive + Mail Bomb
Family 2: Land Mine, Brisance, Volatile, Pyrotechnic + Time Bomb

If anyone really wants the other pooklet colors, you are welcome to request them and when I have time I'll make them for you.

Technical information
- For females
- For ages child-elder
- Requires mesh 65 by Rosesims (Included)
- Binned
- Family'd
- Available in all clothing-categories
- Mesh is 7100 poly
- Files are clearly named and have tooltips with the filename, so you should be able to pick and choose easily

Alpha edit
I made a small modification to the alpha in my recolors. The original has strands of hair hanging down from the back of the head, but I think they look weird and out of place so I removed them in my recolors. I have included a picture showing the alpha edit.

Mesh information
Mesh is 7100 poly, which I would consider reasonable but it is technically high poly. I don't think it will cause lag, but if you have a low end computer you might want to use it sparingly. For more information about polycounts and why they matter, see this article at the Sims Wiki.

The required mesh is donation mesh 65 from Rosesims, package file is called MESH_RoseHair_0110. Mesh is included in this upload. Her site disappeared long ago, so I was given permission to include the mesh. If she ever reappears and shares her things again I will take the mesh down.

Credits
- Pooklet for the lovely base textures

- gdayars for giving me a reason to recolor hair again

Programs used
- Bodyshop
- GIMP
- MS Paint
- CatOfEvilGenius' tooltip adder (Found here. I highly recommend it, very useful tool)

Model will be available for upload eventually.

FAQ
What does family'd mean?
Family means that if your Sim has a hairstyle, and you switch from one haircolor to another, the game remembers the hairstyle and your Sim wears the same one but in the new color. It also means that when a Sim ages up, it'll keep the same hairstyle (if that age group is available).

What does pooklet'd mean?
Pooklet was a creator who created a set color scheme for hairstyles. Pooklet'd means that the recolors have been done in the pooklet color scheme, and will match other recolors that are pooklet. They are great if you want your Sims to change their hairstyle without magically changing the shade of their hair.

What is polycount and why does it matter?
See this great article on the Wiki for more information.

What are tooltips?
Tooltips appear on things when you mouse over their icon in Bodyshop. Not all items have them, but thanks to Cat's wonderful filename tooltip adder program I make sure all my bodyshop creations have the package name as their tooltip, to make it easier for users to locate the file by being able to get the filename from Bodyshop.
