This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
A fun hair for you today.
I decided to try to improve my old hair Crimp It!, and I actually think I achieved what I was going for this time. This time, I made my own texture, and edited the alpha to make it fit the crimped/wavy look.
Then, I thought it would be fun to make some crazy colors, and voila! Crimp It Crazy! was born. :P
Any-who, they're binned (except for Crimp it Crazy!, which will still be in the custom section), ages toddler to elder (elder textures on all Crimp it Crazy! hairs are the same crazy colors as the rest of them, no elder gray here!), and labeled separately in the folder so you may delete any you don't want. Both hairs use only one mesh.

P.S. Sorry for the small, low quality pics, but they look much better in game.

P.P.S. Known issue: the ends of the hair in the front, may like to hide inside your Sims' bodies. I don't know if its a hair mesh thing, or a body mesh thing, or a my alpha edit thing, but it can be really annoying.

another issue ive been asked about more than once: peggys site/link to the mesh-the site link provided (mesh located here) works fine, its just really slow.
itll be on the white screen for a minute or two, but it does eventually show up.
also, try using mozilla firefox as your browser, if you dont already do so.
