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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Several folks had mentioned they'd like to see my New Roman hair for females, and seeing as I like short hair on girls and have figured out some relatively speedy ways of doing gender conversions, I decided to go ahead and do so.

This short, pixie-type hair is available for all ages: toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult, and elder, with the same colours for all ages (no grey elders!)

I have uploaded the mesh separately from the recolours: make sure you grab the recolours and a mesh file (read below for important info on that!). The contents are labeled so you can delete any recolours you don't want. All shades have fixed brow colours (blonde for the white, black for the wine and salt and pepper, all appropriate brows for the natural colours) and the natural shades work genetically, in the correct colour bins.

912 polygons, 619 vertices (low to average).

Which mesh file to download?

If you already have my New Roman hair for males, or you are planning on getting it too, download the file that starts with HMESH that says "Add-On_to_NewRoman" in the filename. This uses the same mesh for the child and toddler as the male version, and there's no sense in having duplicate meshes if you don't need them.

If you do not have my New Roman hair for males and are not planning on getting it, download the file that starts with HMESH that includes "Standalone" in the filename. This includes the meshes for the child and toddler version, so this will work properly for all ages even if you have not gotten my New Roman mesh for males.

Please don't comment if you're just going to request something: I don't take requests unless otherwise noted.

Model Credits: Rebecca's a new model of mine, and I'll be uploading her soon. Look for her coming shortly.

Thanks to:
  • Tiggerypum, for teaching me so much about meshing.
  • Melodie9, for mesh used to clone this so I could make it work properly for all ages.
  • Wes_h, for the Unimesh plugins for Milkshape, used in the creation of this mesh.
  • Dr Pixel, for all kinds of various bits of useful meshing info that have helped me along the way.
  • Everyone who has contributed to the creation and development of SimPE.
  • MTS2, the rest of the staff, and Delphy, for creating a such a fantastic place to learn and share information, so I could figure out how to do cool stuff like this.

My sims love all your hairstyles.. They're so wonderful! ^^;''
Actually, I was just now looking for a good short haircut for one of my sims that wouldn't be the same haircut as another sim in that family (I find it gets annoying to have two sims be even vaguely the same... ^^;'') and this will do /wonderful/.

What about the thousands of wonderful men and women who are fighting this war without any of the credit or the glory that always goes to those lucky few who just happen to get shot?

Hi, thanks for the download, but there is one of the brown hairstyles in the pictures that doesn't appear in the game. Thanks, Dominions.

More specifically, the missing brown hair is the one on the middle of the pictures you provided.

Thank you! I wear my hair that short, and it's not easy finding attractive, realistic hairstyles of this length. I particularly like the salt and pepper look, since my hair is starting to look like that (naturally!), and I am NOT an elder, thank you very much!

I am so desperate for short hair styles for women. Thank you!

For those of you having trouble with the recolour rar, try right clicking and select "save link as". That fixed it for me.
