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.
Hi there

When I saw this lovely mesh I wanted to make some retextures...

It looks pretty much like my hair, so I took some pictures of my hair and tried to make a texture from them...

Normally they are gloriously frizzy and quite a mess ^^ I wanted to use this hair on my Hermione Sim, so that's why I kept it a bit frizzy at the back ^^

In case you feel the colours I provided are not to your liking and you'd like to recolour this texture, I recommend using the blonde version as this was the original...

This hairstyle is for all ages, though I managed to screw up the toddler version... sorry for that :]


The Elder version is always the same grey...

I zipped the colours the way they are shown in this picture:


the first row is the package "curlyhair _blondes-reds" and the second row is the package "curlyhair_browns-black-winered"

All of them have been binned using SimPe...
blondes: platinum, blonde
reds: red-blonde, red, red-brown, winered
browns: light!brown, lightbrown, brown
black: black

All files are named properly so you can delete unwanted files easily

I'm not that happy with the right part of the hair [seen from the sims point of view]... I think it looks too... unnatural... I hope you don't mind, though...

Well... If you like it, please tell me...

Additional Credits:
Of course donnymeloche for his great mesh
Helaene for her lovely eyebrows
bruno for his[?] great lips

The sim is my Alannah.... Every outfit seen was made by me [not uploaded] except for the child's and elder's outfits... That of course was Maxis....
