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.
Hey everyone!

Today I bring you a new hairstyle for your sim chickas, which are based off a Maxis hair from the Base Game, so no meshes needed.

I hadn't actually intended on posting this, as beforehand I only had one colour for it (black) and the hair style was only meant for me to use for my Sim self in the game. But then I thought, "Ya know, its not too bad...what the hey, I'll make a set!" And so here we are ^^

The colours in the pack are just the four basic colours: blonde, red, brown and black, but I have enhanced the colouration of each of them so they look nicer, including the black as it wasn't black enough

Below is a comparison of the original black hair with my shortened recolour:

Also, I edited the colouration of the elder hair as well for a bit of variation for the elder ladies

I did not use MilkShape or other programs there may be that would aid with creating/editing Sim hairstyles. The length was edited via the alpha textures that get exported when using BodyShop.

I must say a big thanks to Animera for the awesome outfits seen on my teens You may find the outfits via the links below:

EDIT Now included is a Binned and Familified version of the hairs thanks to CatOfEvilGenius

Hope you all enjoy!
