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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
It was a real pleasure helping tammeke fix up her really cute retro hair mesh, and it struck me as I was testing it how adorable it would look with some new, non-Maxis textures.

So, while I never thought I'd do so for anyone's meshes but my own, I went ahead and handpainted some new textures for tammeke's mesh which I'm really quite pleased with!

These are recolours, not a new mesh - you will need to go and download tammeke's mesh too, for these to work in your game!

The colours I have made...

  • Black
  • Dark Brown
  • Light Brown
  • Medium Brown
  • Red
  • Blonde
  • Platinum Blonde

Unbinned (shows up under custom):
  • Grey
  • White
  • Platinum blonde with pink tips (my personal favourite)

These all work for young adults, adults, and elders, using the same textures/colours for all... No grey elders (if you want grey elders, use the grey or white recolours!) here, as my sims like hair dye. The non-matchy younger ages have been removed, so you won't get any useless hairs spamming up your younger ages.

Many thanks to tammeke for her lovely mesh, and for being so nice about fixing up the errors to make it truly adorable.
