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.

Today I've got something new for you all. In celebration and a big thanks for reaching 300 thousand downloads, this is a rather large set of various facial hairs for your sim gents - because our poor men really are a bit low on custom content

Have not particularly tried doing facial hair before, so this is basically a first attempt, and I think they came out quite well. I wanted to make something that I had not tried before, and that also showed how I'd improved as a creator. I hope you enjoy these, and thank you to everyone who has shown me support in creating. And thats my ramble over

There are 6 sets in total, and each in the 4 basic colours. These are all binned, family linked, and linked to one grey: oh so snazzy! And of course, no mesh or EPs are required for these to work. As there are few colours, you are welcome to recolour (and edit) these to your hearts desire, just let me know at some point. These are in a variety of styles, such as formal and casual, so should suit most sims. I also attempted for them to be realistic but also slightly Maxis-y, so they can go well with different users' styles

The 6 sets you get are:
Giano - simple moustache with forked stubble goatee
Inigo - simple style of moustache and small beard
Luca - trimmed thin goatee
Nero - stubble that stretches along the jawline
Pedro - forked trimmed goatee that stretches along the chin
Tomaso - simple basic moustache and goatee

No additional facial hair was used in the preview pics. In fact there are no other facial items used at all. So what you see is what you get

Policy can be seen under my main profile page. And the custom content used in the previews are all free: plants by Macrossi, clothes by Aikea and Bosie, skins by Ephemera and Enayla, eyes and eyebrows by Anva, hairs by me (meshes used are free) and Navetsea, and the walls are by someone here at MTS2..I forget who, bah.

Enjoy! Hope you like my 75th upload

Thank you so very much! My fiance was a little sad, because he loves goatees, and his character had to settle for stubble. xP Thanks so much!!
