I just recently went from black to caramel (in real life) and honestly, none of these colors match me. I have the options of either blonde, red, or dark brown. The one light brown that's closest to my hair color has grey in it. I chose the orange hair because it's "the closest" by default, but it really isn't close at all. I'm just confused because light brown is honestly a popular hair color, I'm surprised they didn't give the option for one, but I really wish they did. :disappointed: :disappointed: :disappointed:

    There need to be more hair colors in general. Some of the colors are too saturated or dark, the red colors in particular. Also would love to see more highlights instead of one color for both men and women. I often use the brunette and black versions with grey to make the hair a bit more diverse.

    I agree, they really limited us on colors in general. The red is seriously overbearing.

    Which is a shame cause red is my go to color when creating game characters. I thought I was so original with my redhead female Shepard until Mass Effect 3 came out...

    Just bring back the color wheel xD

    Seriously, though. We wouldn't have to keep begging for more hair colors if we were able to customize them just the way we wanted. That was one of my favorite features of Sims 3. I loved how I could perfectly customize my hair for each of my sims.

    I 100% miss the color wheel entirely. It's been a downer trying to work with their preset options that are so limited with either hair, clothes, furniture, whatever it may be. It's so hard building a house when the colors just aren't "right" to your taste.

    I don't think the color wheel worked for hair colors, did it? o.O

    Another thing I hate about hair colors is each one has a set color if it's with an accessory or two-tone. Like if I want brown hair with orange ends and my only options are the brown with green ends or blonde with orange ends. I really miss the color wheel for hair and eye colors, there's not enough unnatural colors either.

    That annoys me too! I don't use the ones with two tones but I noticed they only have one color with them and that's it.

    I agree there really needs to be more hair color choices. I wanted to make a sim with sort of an Amber color hair. I guess orange/blonde mixed and the option just does not exist. I'm so happy they are giving us more choices but I feel this needs to be one of the choices to be added!

    And I'm not a developer so this is a guess, but I feel like adding a few more hair colors isn't THAT big of a task. I could be wrong, it might actually take quite some time, but I feel because it has no animation and it's just a color that it wouldn't that much of a hassle.

    Agreed! My sister has light brown hair, and I can't make a sim version of her. Or at least, not an accurate version. I also wish that hair accessories were recolorable, and also removable. There's some hair that I just don't want a ribbon or something attached.

    I definitely want all of those as well, but like you said, caramel is what I need.

    I really, really miss the colour wheel for hair! (and eyes...) :( the sims 3 had basically the perfect solution: not only hair colour could be choosen from some presets, but you could choose with the colour wheel, and save your own colour in the presets. And the chance to change higlights and tips... sigh. :/ I find most of the sims 4 colours for the hair to be way too limitanting. Plus I hate that the colour is attached to the hairstyle.

    One time I was creating my friend and her hair was exactly the style of that short choppy one with highlights, but she didn't have any highlights :/

    I'm positive you can find custom content with your desired color, not to mention hairstyles that look much better than anything EA will ever release.

    It would be nice to have more color options. I've never been quite satisfied with the color options we were given in game. I've been slowly working on making my own for personal use because I haven't really found someone that covers quite the range of natural hair color options that I want. Though I do like subtle variety in my colors which is probably why I had a hard time with the games limited colors.

    I agree that we need more hair colours. Even if we can't have a colour wheel for furniture, adding a colour wheel to hair really can't be that terribly difficult. The hair colours (and eye colours, for that matter!) just aren't enough.
    Also, we need more hairstyles with assesories, or assesories that can be added to hair like hats.

    I prefer not to have a color wheel as some of the colors could look really weird, though if it's only one color that could be avoided. I do agree though, a lighter shade of brown is needed. I have a hair color similar to caramel, just a bit more brown than red.
