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.
Now working properly!

These are EAs base game loose braids converted for toddler, child and male teen-elder. The textures link back to EAs; the only one I altered is the halo.

Ive never actually seen a bloke with long box braids, but friends informed me that Stevie Wonder wore them in the 70s so I thought Id convert these for AM just in case. (Itd be a pretty odd style for a toddler, too, come to mention it all that extra hair...)

I expect a lot of people will want this for female children/toddlers but not for males, so I have uploaded two options: (a) unisex and (b) female only. Download only one of each or you will have duplicate styles in your female hair catalogue.

These are all ticked as valid for random. They dont have fat/thin morph states (I dont use TSRW and dont know how to do it with Delphys Barbershop). They may clip through clothing a bit, especially the toddler one, but then, so did the original.

Thanks to everyone who helped me, particularly Bloom and Whiterider Thanks especially to Bloom for explaining how to retain the EA bone assignments when creating the LOD1.

NOTICE: If you downloaded the CF/PF version before the fifth of June, PLEASE REDOWNLOAD! I ingeniously wrecked the face textures. It should be fixed now.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.
