Behind the cut lurk twenty-one hairs for your downloading pleasure.

Since there are a zillion downloads inside the cut, the boilerplate goes outside the cut, so...

NO PAYSITES. Mesh creators' policies may vary, my policy says I want a cut (like that would ever happen), but Pooklet says no and these are Pooklet's actions. So no paysites.

PRAISE BE UNTO: Peggy, Raon, Flora over at XM Sims, and Helga for meshes, Nouk for curly and wavy textures, Ja for this one bit of a curve that I use ALL THE TIME, FantasyRogue for my go-to braid texture, Lyn for making sure I had a working copy of Photoshop, Pooklet for making sure Project Mayhem worked with my copy of Photoshop (and for their textures), my lovely donors who make sure I can keep my photos online (which lets me post hair dumps at all), and you lot for being patient with my long radio silence.

HEY LISTEN! Meshes are included unless otherwise noted. I think I renamed Rose's Taobao meshes so that I could tell what was what. Swatches are included in the zip files, everything is compressorized. Poly counts may vary; the XM and Helga hairs are on the low end, but I have very new AND very old Peggy hairs, so they could be all over the map. Elders go gray, but you also get Time Bomb in the custom bin, just in case Primer isn't platinum enough for you. All female hairs are maternity-wear enabled from teen and up, and all male hairs from YA and up, to stop the weird hair disappearing act that happens if you don't have a Pregnant Sims Wear Any Outfit hack (but why wouldn't you?).

ANNOYING THINGS I DO: Because I credit everybody in them, my folder and file names are stupidly long. Feel free to shorten one, the other, or both as you please-- better you edit them to suit your needs than I just name everything [COLOR NAME] and cheese everybody off, right? Also, each hair color has an elder gray attached instead of only black. Feel free to re-bin everything and cut out the extra grays, or only use one family but swap out textures so your elders have some variety, whatever. Likewise, I bin using Pooklet's original scheme, because it's a nice easy default. I totally do not care if you re-bin things to suit your own tastes (but hey, every hair has a gray attached in case you need it!), and neither does Pooklet, so do whatever makes you happy, binning-wise.

EVEN MORE ANNOYING: Everybody sees a hair dump, so...







Anything helps, yo.


Should you donate, you are entitled to make a request-- something off my hair list or my to-do list or even just a straight-up request, and if I've got the skills for it, I'll give it a go. (Once it's done, it's free for everybody to download, of course, and I make no promises about just when I'll get to something I promise to do.) I will also happily barter stuff on my to-do lists or requests for things I wish exsisted that do not yet exist or in-game preview photos of some of these hairs so I can upload them to GoS once in a while.

Yes, if you want to do the unnaturals, please feel free to do the unnaturals. I have no plans to do so. Just remember to credit properly-- I tend to use Nouk's waves, FR's braid, and a chunk of curve I stole off Ja's Uni ponytail default.

If you spot any broken links or other idiocy, please let me know!

There are twenty-one large pics behind the cut, cats and kittens. Dial-up users beware.

I love this mesh. It's simple, it's cute, it works for all ages, it's got a male version, it looks like Frigg's hair from Guilded Age (and I almost named it for her), and it looks like an easy DIY haircut. Retexturing it, however, was a stone-cold bitch until I said to myself, "Hey, don't the curls on Nouk's Valentines hair kinda look like... yeah!"

Needs A Trim

It looks a little overlong and in-the-way on a grown man, but damn this mesh is adorable on kids and toddlers. Named because the "Did You Join A Boy Band?" was both too long and only would've made, like, one person laugh.

Never Been Cut

Hair does not just keep growing forever. Each hair grows to a length set by your genetics in a time set by your genetics-- usually that time period is about seven years-- and then it falls out naturally. The only way to make it look straight and even is to trim it. This is a lot like what my hair looks like.

You bet your sweet bippy I'm proud of myself. I love this mesh, I always have, but when I went to retexture it, I found the painted curls a bit lacking-- and it just didn't look the same all straight. An unholy hybrid of Pooklet's textures, Nouk's Wavy textures, and Nouk's Valentine curls was the result.

Here's another hair that just sort of... works for women. Any woman who can afford a couple of hairpins. This would look okay on an ancient Greek or Roman, in the Middle Ages, in a Renaissance tavern, under a big broad hat with stays and a pannier or an Empire gown, on any Victorian adult with her day-clothes... Or, you know, now. This hair just works with stuff.

I decided to start making note of which hairs are male or female when I realized Dame Sir was doing just what she was supposed to-- confusing people about what's under her armor. Warrior Princess is Dame Sir's hair-- it's what she looks most like herself in. The first girl in my Medieval game who rolls a want to pull a Fa Mulan Sweet Polly Oliver and enlist is probably going to end up in this hair.

I cannot resist curls. Curls, or braids. This is not the curliest mesh I've ever recolored, but I like the sort of simplicity of it-- like the volume is natural, based on curls someone has tried to brush out.

Also, as nice as it is to see you around again, I haven't even begun to pick and choose the ones I actually plan on using from everything I liked from your previous hair dumps. It's like 80 or so zips, and you're trying to add to that number. And you're not even done yet!

In short, please stop being so amazing. :D

I have to be picky because I'm impatient with loading times and will stop playing altogether if I don't. If not, I'd have nearly all of the hairs you've done in my game already(and all the colors, too, not just five of them). It'll probably be well over a hundred by the time you're done. I'm not sure whether to smile or cry. :'D

Also, the laughing is in reference to this: "Named because the "Did You Join A Boy Band?" was both too long and only would've made, like, one person laugh."

Ahh, do you prefer one of the other greys, or do you simply never have elders? Time Bomb is my favorite, but for sims with silver hair rather than for elders. But most creators only make one grey, so...

I laughed at first, simply because I agreed with the sentiment, and then looked it up, because I thought I might have missed something. The sad part is, I used to watch that show. I just never saw that episode!

So many pretty old meshes here -- hair that I used to use all the time, and then Pooklet's actions became popular and I abandoned them because they didn't match and I didn't appreciate the importance of low-poly. Now I can add them back! And they look gorgeous! Thanks so much! I'm going to stop using exclamation points now!

Thank you! I'm downloading half of these, which is way too many. Your hair dumps are all that is keeping the fathers in my young adult lit hood from having the same three hair cuts.

Also, I've finally just added your dreamwidth to my bookmark bar, because I've been coming here all the time just to look at your swatch of colors. I only use half of them, and it's the only way I can figure out which ones I want when I download from other people. I'm kind of in awe of how organized your stuff is in general.

I have managed to retexture and recolor a few hair sets, but I'm never fully satisfied with the results. Mostly, they're older meshes that I can't find Pook'd elsewhere, and I am determined to have only Pooklet's colors for hair in my game. Thanks for the advice, and I'll keep plugging away at it.

I'm glad you are back, Hat, and thanks muchly for the hair dump! :) So many beautiful hairs and more hair dumps to come, yea! More of my old hairs are going to have to get dumped now. The Never Been Cut made me a little teary, that's what my hair used to look like before b.c. now it is partially shoulder length so your factoid about the seven years it takes gave me some cheer. I love your hair dumps and they make my game even prettier. :)
