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.

Yessir. I have proven myself wrong twice over now. There are now more than one cropped curly hair bits for your mens.
I may have lost my laptop and most of my files, but I haven't lost my passion for pretty curly hair. This mesh demanded to be recolored from scratch. Tom v4.0 was persuaded to dye his hair for the occasion. He's more surly than v3.0 and v2.0 and certainly v1.0, so he refused to dye his beard.



(Aka, I'm too lazy to make recolors of the unfinished fuzzies for screenshots.)

I've never understood how this hair keeps getting recolored in such a repetitive way. Copy paste on every plane, every time. Not this time. Nope, I colored every plane proper to make pretty curls. Not as shiny a texture as the last couple I've done. I'm going to say that was on purpose, as a I was working toward a dirtier style to begin with and shiny looked dumb.

What you get:
The four natural colors binned with a white
White recolor in custom bin
Mesh included-- Hugs to Nouk <3

Skin, make-up, eyes, brows, fuzzies, shirt, walls and sim are all mine. Forgive me the blurry fuzzies, they're not done.

Three quarters credit to Pooklet. Because I used her actions on the blond, brown, and black. Then I edited the heck out of the red.

Terms of use: Please ask before using my textures, but please use my textures. I want to see more curly hair.

Hair Style: Shiny/Realistic
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

I dont need this right now, but I'm downloading anyways, because your stuff always makes up for the small space it take on my computer by how useful and well made it is.

I don't take requests. :-)

This is beyond sweet! I'm always looking for male hairstyles that look manly. Thank you

If you love something, set it free.

You did an amazing job! I was not very fond of the original hair, but your retexture made me change my mind about having this hair mesh on my game.

Thank you!
Bowties are cool.

Seriously? Ha! I didn't know it was contagious, I apologize. xD

And oh man... what a small world! That's amazing. I'm way envious as well.
I actually got to meet the guy earlier this year after a show. My understanding of his existence as a real person is beginning to wear off again though, if that makes sense.

No need to apologize, its wonderfully contagious. He simply has smashing eyebrows, and i cannot ignore good eyebrows.

Yes apparently used to baby sit him in his younger days, personally i want pictures of these younger days.

It makes sense, i have much the same thing from when i met with Bjork and Yoko Ono (separate occasions, unfortunately).

Again great work, also very much enjoying yourfaceispretty!

Serious?! Man, that's too amazing-- I almost can't believe it! Except that England's kind of a small place, so some one has to know him.
So with you there! I would die to get just little picture of him in his youth. I would get SO much information from it!

That is also pretty damn rad. :D

Oh! I'm so flattered you checked it out-- and like it! Makes me embarrassed I haven't been updating. Real tough few weeks. Family emergency, as they say. This message totally brightened a bad month. Thanks for that!

I absolutely love the look of this hair, but I'm on a Mac so my computer doesn't take .rar files. Could I get this in a .zip?
