Whats up with the ugly hair colour

Comments

    Ooh, yep, that's about the only hair color I'll refuse to use. Might have to do with my hatred for yellow and that hair color is straight up yellow. :mask:
    It just looks so fake as well! Like really, I have never seen anyone in real life (not like celebrities, but haven't even seen much of those) with yellow hair.

    Although, like some have mentioned here, it looks okay on the townies. But if I controlled a townie like Malcolm or Dina, I'd probably change their hair color though. :grimace::innocent:

    Yeah it's awful. I never ever use it. What a waste of a color option, now that we don't have a color wheel.... If it were less yellow it would be more realistic. I love honey blonde in real life, but this is so over the top yellow.

    Maybe I'm just biased but I quite like the color. But then again, all the members of my family are golden blond so I don't mind the cartoony version of it in the sims 4. Not really sure how else they could portray golden blond in a cartoony way to match the game other than this?

    So I managed to find some time for this (and the genetics generator in CAS was very helpful ;) I didn't have time to take them out of CAS and make nice screenshots, but this will do to give you an impression.
    Christopher, the oldest, he's a lazy gamer dude (and totally pulling off the red stubble ;)).

    Stephanie, his sister, creative sort of Sim, aspiring writer.

    Their younger brother Joseph, social sort of tech nerd who has a way with the ladies.
    15wx93b.jpg
    Their cousin Fréderique (her dad is French, she gets her build from him), socialite extraordinaire.
    2q35icp.jpg
    Cédric, her brother, fairly normal guy, with a touch of class.

    And Véronique, their little sister (not that they're that far apart in age), loves painting, artist (massive French stereotype right there).

    Their younger cousin Kate, loves music, dreams of becoming a famous violinist one day.

    Will, her brother, who is just your regular teen, likes gaming too.

    Little more background info, they all share one set of grandparents, Frederic (whom Fréderique is named after) and Anne. They have six children, Philip (who is Chris, Stevie and Joe's father), Daphne (who married the French guy), Sophie (Kate and Will's mother), her twin sister Phoebe (whose children are Amelia, David and Isabella), Ralph (the ultimate bachelor) and Josephine (mother of Ciaran, Maeread and Eowyn). So obviously, I'd have a lot of Sims to make if I want to gather the entire family ;) (I think I'd get over the 20 Sim limit if I'd add in all the spouses). (not all of them are blond though)

    Anyway, my point was, the "yellow" hair isn't ugly.

    I like that blonde color too. I think it goes well with the art style in general also..

    I think that...it's a little hurtful for the eyes, especially at first but when you get used to it it kind of goes away. Though I think it looks worse on some hairstyles.

    Can we post links to CC on the forums? Cause I know a great tumblr page that has amazing recolors for all the hairs from the base game up to romantic garden stuff
    I've seen a lot of links to mods/CC so yeah
    I'm all for anything to replace the yellow

    Great! Okay so this one tumblr page I am in love with. They're just recolors but if you like the EA made hair just want new colors this is definitely the place. They've got thinks like Ebony, Strawberry, Maroon etc. I'm hoping the creator makes more colors like platinum or darker hairs but it's still a great selection.

    Edit: The Honey recolor is my personal favorite for an alternative for the corn yellow hair that's in game XD

    I tried downloading them but they weren't showing up in my game :(

    Did you remove the package file from the zip?
    They actually show up as another set of swatches rather than total replacements

    EDIT: Ah, there was a zip file! It just didn't show up how it usually looks. Thank you!

    I think it's supposed to be yellow as in a very vibrant yellow, the same way we have a very vibrant red hair colour. I don't think that one in particular is meant to be a natural blonde at all.
  • Sasquatch7Sasquatch7 Posts: 232 Member
    I don't care for it, either. When I was a kid, I had toy food, and the toy french fries were that exact color. So I think of it as french fry hair :D
  • CandyBunnieCandyBunnie Posts: 52 Member
    I don't like the brassy yellow at all. I really wish they patched more colors.

    It's not my favorite hair color, but I have a couple of Sims with this blond. I would love to see more hair colors though ! Those ones looked really great :

    Oh wow! Absolutely love the plum color. Its gorgeous.
  • SakuraLeonSakuraLeon Posts: 272 Member
    Its not one of my favourite colours, however I do use it a lot for my townies as I love to have lots of different variety's of people in my neighbourhoods :)

    On another note, if you google 'yellow hair' a lot of the pictures have un natural hair colourings and look a really similar colour to the sims colour =/

    I dont why but why did they added this ugly yellowish blonde, it looks horrible and i have never seen a person with such a blonde in my Life.
    What do you think

    The sims don't look real to begin with.
    I don't think its horrible myself.
    I would be surprised if I did see a real person in my life with that shade of blonde!
    It's a game and the art styles suited sims to me.

    I'd take plum and caramel.

    I don't know who created that hair color chart, but in RL Strawberry blonde hair isn't that red. What you've got there is a true redhead. Trust me, I had strawberry-blonde hair as a child. It morphed into a true red, and over time became a dark red. Now, it's a tad lighter for all of the white highlights. Nice to have white over gray. :)

    I have a problem with it. It's too brassy. I wish they had a nice shade in between this 'yellow' and the platinum blonde.

    These screenshots are probably going to turn out horrible :/

    Anyway, the colour reminds a bit/a lot of the blond the EP hairstyles from TS2 had :)
    Also, I never said it was perfect, or that I wouldn't like another shade of blond in the game, I only said that it's not an ugly colour.

    What's so ugly about it?
  • NoriYoriNoriYori Posts: 36 Member
    I think it might have something to die with the texture of thei hair, not the hair color.
  • sunspritersunspriter Posts: 125 Member
    omg yes!! reading this thread i'm so shocked anyone likes this, to me it is so bad i change any townies i see with this color. im wondering if it has something to do with graphics tho? the pictures above don't look half as bad as what i see in my game.
  • LightfieldLightfield Posts: 12,450 Member
    I don't really have anything against it, there are some sims that look very nice in it in my opinion... But I, too, wish that there was a colour between that one and the platinum blonde.
    Add a dab of lavender to milk, leave town with an orange and pretend you're laughing at it.
