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.
The moment I saw it, this hair became one of my instant favorites. However, it had the same problem as various extremely cute hair styles from previous packs. Big old bow with a big bright color that you cannot change. I don't know about you guys, but I don't want to have to dress my kidlets in red all the time just because they have black hair and I want their bow to match.

As such, I made recolors so that child sims can have any of the nine bow colors regardless of their hair color. I also added a white bow because it seemed weird that there wasn't one.

I'm sure there's a more elegant way to do this like making the bow an accessory somehow, but this is literally the first custom content I've ever made so that's currently beyond me. Thus, this stopgap.

These are just recolors, so you must have the Cats & Dogs expansion pack for it to work. In CAS, these can be found in feminine child hairs under the Everyday sort.

Since every bow for every hair color adds up to a lot of swatches I've separated them out in various ways.

You can use one or more of the following files to have all 10 bow colors for the respective hair colors:
  • All Bows - Blondes (EA Blonde, Dirty Blonde, and Platinum)
  • All Bows - Brunettes (EA Black, Dark Brown, and Brown)
  • All Bows - Redheads (EA Red, Auburn, and Orange)

OR you can use one or more of the following to have the specific bow color(s) for all hair colors:
  • Black Bows
  • Blue Bows
  • Bright Yellow Bows
  • Orange Bows
  • Pale Yellow Bows
  • Pink Bows
  • Purple Bows
  • Red Bows
  • Violet Bows
  • White Bows

If you really want you can use the All Bows For All Hair package which contains, as implied, every color bow for every color hair. Be warned however that this package means you're adding 81 swatches to this hairstyle.

I'll probably also do the similarly afflicted child hairstyles from Romantic Garden Stuff, Kids' Room Stuff, and Parenthood along with the toddler hairstyles from Toddler Stuff at some point.
