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.
Hello Everyone!

This is my latest project, which I named "Keep It Simple". I called it that way because this is my first creation I managed to keep low-poly. It's not easy when you're a 3D-renderer, because the temptation to create high-poly stuff is unbridled *Add Bacon*

But this creation received this name not only because it's low-poly, but also because of it's simplicity itself. There are no unnecessary details, everything is where it's supposed to be (the pony tail and the top are not too high). This is one of my favorite hairstyles and I wear it often in real life myself

-This hairstyle is available for female Sims of all ages and comes in 3 types: EA's highlights, Colored strands highlights and EA &Colored strands highlights. You can have all installed at the same time and they work fine.
-Toddler and Child versions have shorter tails, because it looks a bit silly when it's long :P
-I liked the ponytail from Teen Stuff Pack for Sims 2, so I tried making something similar and modified it to my own liking.
-Bunnies, bunnies, give me bunnies! Just kidding, ENJOY!

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.
