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.

Hello everybody!
Today I made a brand new mesh with all maxis colors.
I would like to know what you think of it.
You may recolor this mesh but pleas give a credit
Anyway here are the details:

- mesh for young adult, adult and elder
- 4 binned maxis-recolors

added at 18 March:
- 3 binned recoulors:
* Platinum blonde
* Black with Red Extensions
* Darkred

edit: I fixed the bunch of strong diagonal lines and stretching. Now it's smoother. I fixed also the problem that age transition from adult to elder does not work properly. So redownload the mesh and recolors and replace it with the newer one

Polygon Counts:
Faces: 926
Vertices: 579
Hair Style: Natural Colours Maxis-Match
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable
Bin Type: Binned
Age: Young Adult Adult Elder

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

Thank you for updating, tammeke. The new version looks absolutely adorable in-game, with much improved animation. Mary-Sue Pleasant LOVES her new hairstyle.

Totally gonna try some retextures for it (I'm not a fan of Maxis textures personally though I know many are, just a personal preference thing) and I'll send you a link when I'm done.

Amazing, freakin' amazing. This is exactly the hairstyle I was about to search for to put on my next Sim. You obviously read my mind.

I love this style! Thank you very much

Any chance it could be converted for all ages, I would love my teens to be able to use this style?!

If you love something, set it free.
If it doesn't come back,
hunt it down and kill it.

Tammeke, this would be quite easy to convert to teen - your recolour already has the right groups set up for it. You'd just want to make a clone of that hair for female as its own mesh, and link it to your existing recolour packages for the teen age - no harder than doing it for adults, then import your adult parts and scale them down for teen... or modify the teen short bob mesh in the same way you did for adults, and do the same bone assignments. Either way I think you can handle it, if you so choose - PM me if you need any help. I'd be happy to give you a hand... and if you wanted to do it for child/toddler that's just as doable.
