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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I have created a new hair mesh in two versions: Short Bob and Shorter Bob. It is just a simple edit of an existing basegame mesh but it is really cute. I have shortened the hair in Milkshape and converted it for other genders and ages.



Features:
  • New Hair doesn't overwrite any existing hair
  • 2 versions:
    • Short Bob: It has chin length and is for female teens to female elders
    • Shorter Bob: It has mouth length and is for both genders and all ages.
  • Fully recolorable

Here are some pictures of Shorter Bob. The version for males is a little bit shorter then the one for females.


And some of Short Bob:


For more pictures watch the attachements.

If you don't want the hair for a special age group or a specific gender download only the files you want. For example: If you don't like the male version only download the female files. Because of this I have also splitted the files for childs and toddlers.

The hair looks better on Sims with round faces. Especially the hair for male Sims looks a little bit stupid on male Sims with small faces.

Polygon Counts:
Polys: 2111
Vertices: 1636

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.

Thanks so much for making these separate files, I love men with long hair but this style is a little to femmy for my guys or too Sir Simsalot looking, So I'll only be getting it for females. Thanks you very much I can't wait to see what else you are working on.

They have uploaded an older version of my hair. I had released it to Simforum in order being tested by people. Then I have fixed it and made it for all ages. I wrote this to the comments. Because I don't want people playing with the unfixed hair. But it doesn't matter to me if the hair is shared. Because it's only a edit of a basegame hair.


Not their- I'll find it and show you.

DAMN OEPU

DANKE FÜR DIE HAARE

they are what i was looking for since i created my first sim in sims3 (it's a chad kroeger sim) and now he can have nice hair THANK YA SO MUCH

They tell us everything's alright and we just go along;
How can we fall asleep at night when something's clearly wrong?
When we can feed a starving world with what we throw away;
But all we serve are empty words that always tastes the same...

I downloaded all the hair but was unable to download the shorter bob for female child. All the other downloads worked fine and I tried to dl the female child 4 times but it still said the file was corrupted.
I would really like to have this hair style for the female child and hope that you can fix it.
Thanks so much for all your hard work that you do for us Simmers, excellent job.

It works fine for me. I have tried to download and extract. Maybe you should delete your cache and try to download it again?

oepusims.tumblr.com. I don't take request. I have 2 children and few freetime. Use my creations as you wish. You don't have to ask.

Thank you so much, this is great! I first glanced at it and thought that I wouldn't like it, but I decided to look more and I love it. It's odd how it looks good on males and females, too. Usually when a hair's for both, it looks really butch on girls or extremely feminine and unrealistic on guys, but it looks normal on both. Thanks!

I love what you've done here, separating by gender and age, allowing us to choose what we want it for. And kids and toddlers ESPECIALLY needed more hair. Thanks for this!

Just the cutest style, and I mean that in a very complimentary way. (I tend to use the word cute a little too much).

Thanks for this Oepu. I'm sure many people would be grateful if you had the time to make/convert some decent short (non poufy, not hanging in the eyes) male hair.

#49 Old 4th Aug 2009 at 1:07 PM
Thank you Oepu I now have some nice hair for child screenshot's. Looking forward to seeing your other projects.

If at first you don't succeed, try and try again.
Thanks
