Hey! You've done some excellent work there Jay! I was just wondering if you could make some recolours blonde, brown, red etc. too? The detail in this is FAB-ulous! Keep up the GREAT work! xo

for some reason I download the mesh and the hair file but this file (and some of the clothes files) doesn't work in my game. however i love that you make ethnic hair and clothes for sims.

Thank you so much for these gorgeous braids! I just gave this hairstyle to a new sim I was working on, and she turned out to be one of the most beautiful I've made so far
