764 Thanks  Thanks     378 Favourited
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.
Updated main file to include toddlers! Please overwrite the old one
I've also added a new .rar that includes individual files for the following packs:
  • Perfect Patio
  • Spooky Stuff
  • Cool Kitchen
  • Romantic Garden
  • Dine Out
  • Vampires
  • Get Together
  • City Living

I have a list of all my hairs I need to update (basically all of them, I'm sorry), but I can only update them for certain packs, as I don't have enough money to buy all of them. I will get working on them as soon as possible, as so many of you have asked and I feel terrible about not updating them. I'll have to attempt to recreate all the colours too as I've gone through 2 HDD's since creating them, so it may take me a while, but I will do my best. As I said though, I'm really sorry that some hairstyles from certain packs won't be included as I can't afford them

Quick note for anybody having the problem of only these colours showing up:

11/Apr/2015 UPDATE: Added new optional file including all Get To Work hairstyles, and I updated the main file to include two new hairstyles from the most recent patch. (Replace with updated file for the hairs)

Hello again!

I got a few people asking for more colours, and here is one of them :P
I was sort of sick of seeing the only real ginger option being bright orange, and the regular "blonde" being yellow...
So, strawberry blonde anyone?

I'm not entirely certain about the concept of genetics in the Sims 4 yet, however I played with them in CAS, and for example; between a 'Targaryen blonde' father and a 'Strawberry blonde' mother, the kids either had Platinum, Dirty blonde, or either of their parents hair colours.
I then played in game, had the Targaryen blonde and Strawberry blonde produce a Strawberry blonde child. And then had two Strawberry blonde's produce a child with Dirty blonde hair.
So, I'm admittedly a bit confused but if that's what happens anyway, then yes this hair colour is genetic.
At least it does get passed down, just, not every time

I adore this colour so I hope you do too, if you do please leave thanks
It says in the title but I'll just make it clear this is a new shade, non-default so it won't replace anything.
Feel free to suggest more, report any problems and request in the comments or pm me, I love feedback.

P.S. If anyone missed it, Targaryen Blonde was updated for Outdoor Retreat here:
