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.
This is a Sims 2 conversion of the Shortperm hair for all age

It has 4 channels: base, roots, highlights and tips

Polygon Counts:
Melodie9Shortperm-AF: 1402
Melodie9Shortperm-CF: 1402
Melodie9Shortperm-PF: 1402

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Hi! I downloaded your hair, and its okay...but blond does not look too good. To give and example:
I'm not sure what it is exactly, but it seems like she dyed chunks of her hair black. Cute only if I intend it to be that way. Darker colors look good.

ETA: Here is another thing that you might want to look at. But I haven't retextured a hair before so I'm not sure how to fix it:
The right side (Sim's right) looks good. But the inside on her left looks very flat, and cuts into her ear in a fairly obvious way. Its not huge thing, but for people who like to take close up photos, it could become a problem for them.

I'll be sure to test for you.

If all works correctly, I have finally found a hair I like to wear with a certain hat I have as an accessory :D

Thank you for making this! I recently had an adult with this hair become an elder and could't believe this style wasn't available for elders. Now it is.
Not actually evil.

You're still creating! Hurray! Your TS2 hair made my child sims so much more varied and cute. If I played TS3, I would be grabbing your TS3 conversions.

Are you able to make this into a male wearable hair? This was my favourite male hair in TS2.

This hair looked great, in The Sims 2..... Sims 3? Not so much. The mesh and texture both look horribly flat, there's no dimension.
