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.

I was all excited for University Life and dread hairstyles only to find that my favorite dreads weren't enabled for both genders! This was just unacceptable. So, I give you the male University Life dreads converted for females!

These beautiful dreads are available for ages teen and up.

The dreads are fully recolourable and versatile. The images show them in EA's default colour templates, however, if you want more detail, making the highlights brighter than the base generally has a good effect. In the picture below, the model on the left has lighter highlights--while the model on the right has the default EA colour tone.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Note: This hair currently requires the University Life expansion.
