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.
There just aren't any nice mid-length, wavy hairs for men around! So, I converted these three good looking hair styles from AMB for males.



These are all from Teen to Elder males. All include original textures and meshes, I just enabled these hairs for men. There's no noticeable problems or clipping with meshes as these aren't that long hair styles. Although, if your sim has large ears (the ear slider value over the middle point of the slider), they might show a bit through the hair.

YOU WILL NEED AMBITIONS EXPANSION PACK INSTALLED FOR THESE TO WORK.



Polygon counts:

Wave full: total 4336
Frizzy: total 6211
Messy Long: total 6222

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

These look really good on men. They don't make them look the least bit feminine. Thanks!

I use these hairs a lot in my games. Now I wonder HOW have I been able to live without their male version. Thank you.

Thank you *so* much. These really do look great on the guys and I definitely needed more longer male hairs.

PS
Do you have any plans on releasing the models?

Good idea - I've never used these on women because I felt these hairdos were unattractive and just didn't suit them, but I see now that they suit a rugged male face very well. Great way to have more long hairdos for men, without adding more polys to the game!

More long hair for males!!! Love 'em, like many others on here I rarely used any of these hairstyles on my girls, but they do really look great on guys :D

Also, I'm currently drooling really bad on your first model.
