Don't Call it a Comb-back

UPDATED: 12.16.2011 - Fixed shine issue & retouched texture with better shading & contrast.  Please redownload.

 

Frohawks with irregular cornrows for your afropunk (or jewfro-rockin') sims. 

 

I love frohawks, and us straight-haired people already have tons of different TS3 hair options, so I figured I'd see if I could do frohawks some justice.  This was my first hair mesh ever. (And holy crap, I can understand why a bunch of hair makers end up going pay!)  There was a crazy amount of work involved to learn, make, and troubleshoot this, so I hope you all enjoy it.

 

These are enabled for all ages and genders.  Poly count is medium/high at around 7700.

 

Lots of thanks to BloomsBase & CmarNYC for answering my questions, Hysterical Paroxysm & Delphy at MTS for the tutorials and programs, and WesHowe for the Milkshape plugins.

Edit:  I just noticed that Tifa made a sim with this hair. (And I love the way she styled her!  I wish I could leave a comment for her!)  It looks like she has a better computer/graphics card than I do, and she took some nice, higher quality pics of the hair.  You can check it out at her blog.

I haven't updated for a long

I haven't updated for a long time because I was repulsed by many of the attitudes in the TS3 community, which I explained here.  Tbh, I think a lot of other creators got fed up around the same time as I did and slowly dropped off.
 
Thanks for the comment, and btw, the hair is enabled for toddlers and children, so you don't have to wait.  ;)

Lovely

I adore this hair, brilliant job :)

thank you

thank you

Awesome

Thank you! For this to be your first hair mesh, I think your pix are amazing. I can't wait to try it out.

You know, practice makes perfect (translate as: Pleeeeaze do another). There isn't much out there in terms of afrocentric hairstyles, especially for curly-girls, so if you do decide to try another, I'm sure you'll have many many fans.

Thanks. I still have a lot

Thanks. I still have a lot of learning to do as far as creating hair goes, and I have a few other hairstyles I want to make, so hopefully I'll pick up a few new tricks along the way and figure out better ways to avoid some imperfections.

I will probably be working exclusively on afrocentric and curly hairs for a while. I don't feel a burning need to make yet another long, straight hair mesh when there are already so many available.

this is so awesome and it's

this is so awesome and it's hard to believe it's your first mesh, quality work!

As a rocker of the fro-hawk, I must say you've done an outstanding job. I indeed do where my hair like this, braids all. Thanks for even caring enough to make a style like this for the game. It has not gone unappreciated. Thanks again! Great work here!

Thanks! I hope you get a lot of use out of this hair! And *jealous* of your most excellent RL hairstyle.

Oh hell yeah, just got peeped on this hair by Sunhair. I am in love and so happy for a fresh, new, funky hairstyle for my sims. Trying this on a sim tonight. Thank you.

Wow!

I Really Like This & The Half-Braided Afro, Is There Any Way To Make Both Of Them A Sims3Pack Instead Of A Package Cause I Have TERRIBLE Luck With Installing Them. Thank You.

You might be able to convert

You might be able to convert packages to sims3packs with TSRW. If you do this, please only use it for personal use and do not share the file.

Looks awesome!

Hi Robokitty,

This is looking awesome!

I just saw the note you left a year ago (derpderpneverlooksinblogderp) and yeah, they are very different.
(If you had used my mesh it would never have looked this nice! Mine is too low poly for the Sims 3.)

It looks really nice, and I'm glad to see someone's making nice afro style hair for the sims 3 :)

Greetings from Nouk

FI-NA-LEEE!!!

thanks sooooo much for your time and choice of hairdos. I'm certainly sure you know how hard it is to find black hairstyles for the sims 3. I am sooo grateful to you for creating this hairstyle because I was just about to give up on looking for these kind of hairs You are definitely in my sims cc hall of fame!!! Although I personally can't create a thing for the sims, I do know how hard and time consuming it is to create hair, so I want to sincerely say that this is very much appreciated, and hope that you consider doing more. I can't wait to put this on my simmies. They're gonna love their new fantabulous 'do! *doing cartwheels*

Thank you!

Thanks! This will be great especially for my black sims (-: i don't know why there are so little hairstyles for them. I'll mention this one in my blog (with credits and links here, of course) if you don't mind (:

Just what I was look'n for

Awesome

Wow this truly is a 2 in one treat because your link to Tifa's blog led me to those amazing earrings by NecroDog :) thank you. I presume you can see my homepage, if you click it you will see I have a mohawk. I have semi-nappy, curly hair but not nappy enough to have a frohawk but if I could I'd definitely want it to look like this. Great job, last time I was here most of your work was tattoos and clothing it's amazing to see how you've progressed.

Your stuff is amazing. Than

Your stuff is amazing. Than you!
