"Attractive" Bowl Cut Hairstyle


Excuse me while I bust a gut laughing! Bahaha! I noticed that there are a couple of hairstyles at the Sims 2 Store that I've never seen before. They're nothing to write home (or MATY) about, but this one just had to be shared. Priceless.

I also love how the item is from the "Sims?" 2 Store. :P Even they aren't completely sure. Sad times, EA.

I have that hair in my game (I downloaded the whole Medieval folder from MATY and forgot to take it off) and it looks awful on any sim. I know they have released some funny looking hairs and clothing, but this one takes the cake!

It comes in the Medieval set? I think I'm going to have to check that out! XD Thanks for letting me know.

Weirdly enough, it's looked pretty cute on a few of my girls . . . but they had extreme or alien features. Maybe it just takes all sorts of types. :D

Hahaha, that's hilarious! "Attractive" definitely wouldn't be the word I'd use to describe that hairstyle.

"Attractive" and "bowl cut" should never be in the same sentence, if you ask me.

It would make more sense if they'd mentioned it was supposed to be Medieval, but even so, it's pretty funny looking.

Well, if it was platinum blonde you could use it to recreate Lady Gaga from the "Alejandro" video, but that's the only use I could possibly see for it! XD Or hey! You could make a Dorothy Hamill sim! (*is old and remembers Dorothy Hamill*)

It is a godawful hair though (even on Lady Gaga).

What's bad for the gander is bad for the goose.

If male sims can have heinous bowl cut hair, why not the girls?

Ug-quality now!

Aw! I actually like that style on the right sim. It's like a little Joan of Arc cut. I used it on Speck Sprocket and she rocked it. IMO of course! ^_^

It just goes to show that the right sim can pull of any look. Speck does indeed rock it. Very cute. And you're right about the Joan of Arc thing, though it's not exactly a common look these days.

I'm thinking of testing in out in my game. At least it's not the same ol' same ol' long hair in a different configuration we get with most cc.

For some reason, I keep thinking it would be the perfect hair for a little android girl. I'd want her to be a teen, though, and I don't know if teens can have that hair.

I'm pretty sure all the stuff from the store only shows up for adults, which is crazy when you consider how much they expect people to pay for it.

I'm pretty sure this specific hair is for teens and children as well, but - surprise, surprise - you have to buy each age separately from the store, because EA are greedy bastards. Or alternatively... arr.

I have the booty version, of course. But I'll have to fire up Body Shop to see if I have the other ages.

I'm convinced it exists for children, at least, but I'm not sure about teen.

Hmm... I don't have the adult version anymore either! I must not have gotten the medieval collection when I gleaned through the posts on the more awesome site.

A child android would be just as cute. And I know what skin I'd use, too. ^_^

I think that hair is actually available for children of both genders, and then teen and adult females, but in three separate files; they may be in different sets at MATY, I'm not sure. I thought it was strange that they didn't include them for teen or adult males, but did for females.

That hairstyle somehow always reminds me of Julie Andrews in 'The Sound of Music'

I think that hairstyle might have worked better if it was created for males. It certainly looks like the kind of "medieval" hairstyle you see in certain Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Like the little prince's haircut in this one (http://www.art.com/products/p11784411-sa-i1421456/edmund-blair-leighton-a-little-prince-likely-in-time-to-bless-a-royal-throne-1904.htm).

Oh, and um, hi, I'm new! I stayed up until three in the morning a couple weeks ago reading your wonderful Strangetown, Here We Come! I can't wait to see what happens to Vidcund and Bottom in Faerie! :)

That is the exact same hair I had when I was 2 - 8 years old.

I hated it then, and it fills me with fury now.

I had the same haircut as a child too! I can't believe anyone would actually pay for that hair. "Attractive bowlcut", lol.

How much is 100 SimPoints in real world money, anyway?

Take two inches off the bangs and you'll have the hair cut I received when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade. *shudders* I place the blame squarely on Dorothy Hamill.

Ahaha! Couldn´t they come with a better description? Like "This hair will make your sim the hunk of your medieval simtown" or something?
