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.
UPDATED i upload a new file that will put the hair in the right color bin
(if you want to keep them in the custom bin you could just create new hair in bodyshop using my files and those new hairs will automatically go in the custom bin)

Not really a new mesh but an adaptation of the maxis'sone to toddler, boy and teen. It includes the 4 Maxis basic colors. Made using SimPE and wes_h plugin. Clone and recolor as you like.

Please note that all the hairs i did are in the 4 Maxis colors (black, brown, blond and red) and that they are available from the toddler to the elder.

(you will need the tree meshes included in this file if you want the hair to be available to the toddler, boy and teen)

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Wow melodie9... You are going all out with these hair mesh re-creations. I have loved every one of them!

I am really NOT a fan of this hair mesh on the Adult Male, but it looks so adorable on the toddler in the screen shot.

Great work as always, and Thanx yet again! :D

I didn't even realise that teens don't get this hairstyle before seeing this thread. Queries aside, this is a great idea. I'd like to see the mohawk or the beanie for toddlers one of these days. Baseball caps for kids would also be neat.

I'm a big admirer of yours, Melodie. I very much appreciate people doing this needful work, fixing and enabling things that Maxis should have taken care of themselves.

Besides that, I have a question or perhaps a suggestion: Wouldn't it be possible to make your adapted adult meshes for teens, kids and todlers so, that they would replace the former Maxis ones in these age categories directly, instead of making a new hairstyles in custom hair bin?

Thank you so much for making hairs that go from todd to teen!! I always hate having hairs that are JUST for toddlers since it is just basic hair in my bin for all the other ages. Very thankful!

I just wondered if anyone has been having the same problem as me, I have Uni installed and have other mods such as InSim. It has happened with both the Natrobo files and Melodie's files, I have unzipped them and put them in my downloads folder but the will not appear in my game. I can't see the image of the hair if that makes sense, and I have tried accessing it through bodyshop but that won't work either. Just wondered if you had any ideas. Thanks Emily

I just wanted to add my thanks, Melodie. This is a terrific modification and you must be psychic. I say this because only yesterday I saw a small dark-haired boy with this same hairstyle. It makes a boy looks wholesome and all-around good, like he's on his way to Grandma's.

For a teenaged boy, he looks just dorky. But ready to impress somebody for that first-time job or first steady.
