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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here are two variations of a nice short hairstyle. I use the tidy hair as my sim's usual style, and the messy hair as his sleepwear + undies style. Makes for a cute case of bedhead.
The sideburns pictured are also included (in a separate download file) since I made them to go with this hair.

I saw this hair on your tumblr and immediately wanted it. It will totally be abused in my game. Thank you so much for sharing it!

The short, messy hair just might be one of my new favourite hairs. It's perfect for Sim guys who are a little messy, but mostly tidy-ish (but still not so relentlessly tidy as to qualify for the tidy hair). Thank you!

The table is pretty, too.

Just want to make sure, please. You have this hair designated for BG only, but you mentioned Kitchen and Bath. You don't need K&B, correct?

Thanks to ALL free-site creators, admins and mods.

RIP Sunni ... truly a ray of light.

Thanks guys.

gazania: That's right. I used a Kitchen & Bath hairstyle to make this one but you don't need Kitchen & Bath or any other expansion to use mine.
Bowties are cool.

Love what you did with this K&B hairstyle. My male sims look much more realistic with your upgraded hairstyles. Thanks.

Aww, thanks again guys. All your nice comments are much appreciated.

simssluverr15: The eyes, really? That's a new request. Okay let's see. The blond guy's eyes are these eyes by Oepu. They're my favourite eyes - highly recommended! I believe the others are my own default-replacement eyes, which are available here.

@ Fanseelamb this is a very nice hair style, I do notice the sideburns texture is just a tab bit off from the texture of the hair. ( but nothing to fuss about ) It also should be mention that the Sideburns are found in the Beards or Moustache section. For I had to go on a treasure hunt for them. All and all this is ready wonderful. Thank you

Simonut: Sideburns are always in the Facial Hair > Beards section. Didn't think I had to mention that since even the Maxis ones are found there. Sorry if that caused any confusion.

Fanseelamb, no confusion, but what took me on a treasure hunt (lol ) was I have other custom hair ( hairline ) and facial hair ( goatee ) and the creator place them all in CAS "Costume Makeup" section of the Sims game.

I really never pay much attention to sideburns or where they go you are my first creator that offer sideburns with the hair, most of the time it is just the hair with maybe sideburns already build in. But not a problem no matter what you make it is always great.

Um. Yeah. That's a weird place to put facial hair. I'm guessing they did it that way so the hairlines and goatees can be worn along with other facial hair. You can't put 2 different things from the "beard" bin on a sim, but you can put 2 different things from the makeup bin on a sim if the makeup is made a certain way.

Anyway, all my facial hair is found in its normal facial hair category, and counts as facial hair towards a sim's turn-ons/turn-offs.
