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.

Happy Braids - Braids in a bun for ladies of all ages!

Hi ladies! Wanna destroy your sims hairline with lace tops and glue? Want to put in weaves that never have the same texture as their real hair? Want to press their hair everyday? Want to burn it with chemicals? Want them to wear a wig with someone elses hair in it, or worse, animal hair? No?

Put your sims hairpieces on a pile and have your sim burn them because you're getting them good old braided hair! Not too tight that your lady sim would get a headache, and still looking tight... what more would you and your simmie want?









Info
- 8 binned and familied colors with correct eyebrows
- animated
- all ages
- handdrawn, has bumpmaps, therefore large files (If your game runs really crappy, don't use big hair files, or don't let alot of sims wear them in the same lot.)
- 4414 faces, 3013 vertices

Polygon Counts:
4414 faces, 3013 vertices

I like most of your hairs but I'm always especially pleased by your ethnic hairs. They look so much better than anything else out there.

I love it! We need more braided hair styles. I used to get my hair braided like that, but I couldn't stand the headache when they were too tight or the itching where you couldn't scratch it, so you have to do that head pat thing. lol

There's something so natural and wholesome about this hairstyle. You have a real knack for creating realistic textures. It's lovely.
