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 actually did this hair mesh a while back, but due to some issues with textures I decided to shelve it for several months until I worked around the problem. This one's pretty much based on the hairstyle Kit Kittredge wore in the American Girl books, hence the name. So far I only did it for girls, but I might convert the mesh for other ages if anyone wants to, or you can convert it yourself using the provided source files if you're up to it. :P

Made mostly with 3DS Max 2012, Photoshop CS6, Milkshape and TSRW, along with stock EA textures. The hair mesh should work with the base game, and can be found on all clothing categories.

Simply extract the contents of the zip file to your TS3 mod packages folder, and you're all set.

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.

I'm a big fan of Kit, too, and since I couldn't find a hair mesh that goes well with my Kit Kittredge sim I thought of putting matters into my own hands.

I might as well release my Kit as a .sim package along with some of her other outfits, but that'll take time as I need to do some model/texture work first.
