Half Braided Afros

By request, a loose afro style with cornrows on the side. 

There are some transparency issues with this hair from certain angles, and I'm fairly certain these issues cannot be fixed short of remeshing the trouble parts.  Since I've already remeshed this thing once, I'm calling it a day and saying it's good enough.  I'm experimenting with a couple different methods for creating a poofy afro texture without resorting to the whole solid-ball-covered-with-transparent-outline trick, so this was one of the results.  There will be more in the future.

Despite all the above, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.  (I just have a little bit more to learn for next time!)

The poly count is a little on the higher side, at about 8400 polys. This hairstyle is enabled for children unisex and for teen-elder females.  Enjoy!

FANTASTIC job! thanks for being one of the only creators brave and creative enough to go beyond the standard straight hairstyles for sims!

cOOOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UGH

......Right. Thanks to you, after using this hair on my Sims in the last few days, I'm seriously considering in getting this style IRL next week. With sew ins and a partial crow, of course. I'm too....ahem. Attached to relaxer.

But thank you for making this! After seeing these latest hairs, plus the new African-themed EA ones (especially one that's a super-cute cornrow/straight hair fallover that I am REALLY interested in re-making just to make it longer), the game is way much more interesting. Definitely looking forward to what you have in store in the future! /bookmarks

You .. are.. REALLY.. good..

This is totally wowing me.
The mesh and texture are truly AMAZING.

Could I request proper dreadlocks for males from you hand?
Cause if they are going to be high quality like the other hair you made so far, they will rule the roost in Sim-Dreadlock-lovers-land. :)

OMG this is great i love this

OMG this is great i love this hairstyle..i did what you said on how to create hairs and lets just say it dint turn out well lol but i had one question next time you do a edit or a new creation do you mind making the afro side of the hairstyle flat like straight hair im trying to find a hairstyle other than coolsims one because it crashed my game please and thank you

Dammmn

STUNNING! This is soooo sick, well done. Thank you

Fabulous work

Ty so much for doing these. I am trying to use them in game, but I think they are not compatible with version 1.26 or 1.29? I've tried and they do not show up. Hopefully I can use them soon. I've been dying for some ethnic hair.

AWESOME HAIR BUT IT DOESNT SHOW UP IN GAME

The other hairstyles work for me but this hairstyle won't show up in my game.. how is that possible or do you need to have updated patch?

Greetings

omfg when I saw this my jaw

omfg when I saw this my jaw dropped, I did a double take and I quickly pressed download. Your skills are wow and I am soooo happy someone is doing afro hair. This means a lot to me because I am trying to grow my afro to be huge. Wow, just wow, thank you for your amazing creation!

Are Still Taking Ideas?

Thank you so much for this. Finding quality ethnic hairstyles for the Sims 3 can be quite difficult. This hair and the other styles you did are amazing.

By any chance, if you do decide to do the box braid hairstyle from the page before, can you also do a retexture so that is looks like senegalese twists?

I love this hair very very much! But I have trouble installing it. I tried it with TSRW to convert it into sim3pack file but it doesn't work at all. So can you please make it into sim3pack file?

I love that you make ethnic

I love that you make ethnic hairstyles and hope in the future to see more :)

INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!

It's a shame that the Sims 3 store lacks diversity, reality states that women of all colors rock curly hair, afros, frohawks, twist, locks, and braids!!! I'm so glad that you exist representing the soul sim lovers. Thank you!!!

This is just amazing!

This is just amazing!
