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.

Whenever a new expansion pack or stuff pack is released, I always get somewhat annoyed that EAxis never seems to bother making the new hairstyles for ages other than adult/elder. Talk about lazy...

To help rectify this situation, here's the male "Gelled Rock" hairstyle from the Kitchen & Bath stuff pack for toddlers, children and teen boys:


The hair comes in the four original Maxis colours and is properly colour-binned.

Please note:

You don't need any expansion packs or stuff packs for the converted ages (toddler, child, teen) to work, but if you want the adult version as well, you'll need the Kitchen & Bath stuff pack it came with!


This is my first attempt at hairmeshing - I tested it in my game to make sure it worked, but if there still are any problems, please let me know, and I'll try to fix them.

Just to let you know, when you age transition the hair style changes and it also changes to blonde when you age from toddler to child. Other than that, it looks great in game!

Stewie (after tripping Peter): Ha ha ha, oh my God! I almost didn't do it, I almost didn't do it! I thought, is this in bad taste? But you know what, I went for it. I went for it and I'm so glad I did! Ooooh, worth it, totally worth it.

Thanks for the conversion! I'm not sure about the sideburns on the child and toddler hair, but I love this hairstyle.

My god this is like, a David Tennant hairdo. I was just thinking earlier how cool that would be for a sim. Now I have to go buy the useless sim stuff pack for this hair!

This is probably my favorite male hair ever, so thanks a billion for doing this. You rock.

*sigh* I liked it when Maxis used to make all haircuts for all ages themselves(when was that? the base game?) I don't understand why they don't do it anymore D:
Thank you so much for all your hard work! It is highly appreciated~! <3
