I really like this "Updo Dreads" just a bit more than the loose dreads, I just wish the polygon count was not so much. Other than that this is lovely.

You seem to be the only one on this site -- so far; I'm still digging through all of the hair CC -- who makes hair for black Sims. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. <3

What a great updo! I've never seen anything in that style, great idea. And the adult model is so, so beautiful! I still hope you'll upload some of your sims one of these days; I love the job you're doing on them, especially the bone structure (I never get that quite right myself). Thanks for those beautiful hair creations!
