April Fool's Day generally kind of irritates me with the number of dumb and tedious pranks sites like to pull, so I thought I'd do my part to alleviate that somewhat by offering up a few old styles I've made a successful attempt to salvage by retexturing -- XM Sims 051, Peggy/Juice 0021, and Sunair 0036 & 0037. XM 0051 is for teens through elders, I believe, while the others are all ages.

All styles come in (from left to right) Dynamite (black), Depth Charge (brown), Volatile (blond), Pyrotechnic (red), and Mail Bomb (gray), and have been retextured in various combinations of Pooklet's v. 2 and 3 textures (with some additional textures from elsewhere mixed in where noted). Gray is the elder only file, so don't delete it or elders won't have that hairstyle! However, I've included base Volatile textures in each archive so you can make any other colors you need.

Juice 0021 and Sunair 0036 also come in four streaked recolors.

From left to right:
Cupcake - Primer base, streaked with PowderCake and Pentolite
Marmelade - Firework base, streaked with Torpedo and C-3
Blue Raspberry - HMX base, streaked with Fluorophore and Blasting Agent
Licorice - FlashPowder base, streaked with Fulminant and Semtex

Probably a blend of v.2 and v.3 here, since the texture stretches a lot on this mesh I had to play around with it a lot. Hair on the back of the head closest to the scalp is from a Maxis retexture by me. This retexture has different hair jewelry than the original -- rose-themed barrettes and a rose and pearl dangle on the hairstick. I nabbed the images for those off of jewelry sites.

V.2 textures on the fringe and sidelocks, I'm pretty sure. I used Nymphy's edit of Nouk's waves for the back of the hair, and snagged some textured from Sizz's Hanui hair for the ends of the fringe and sidelocks. On the streaked versions, only the fringe and sidelocks are streaked -- having a color fade on the curls just looked awkward, unfortunately.

V. 3 textures. Alpha snagged from some random Peggy texture and heavily smushed around.
I fixed this mesh -- originally, the hair didn't have an underneath side and so planes of it would disappear from certain angles. The fix added about 500 polys to everything but the toddler age -- the hair is close enough to the head on them that the transparency isn't very noticeable.

V. 3 textures on the hair length, and texture from a Maxis retexture by me on the hair closer to the head. Headband only comes in the pink roses and is from some odd icon texture resource.
I fixed this mesh -- originally, the hair didn't have an underneath side and so planes of it would disappear from certain angles. I also chopped off the dangling bits of scarf, since they clipped with too many clothes and all fat morphs. The fix added about 500 polys to everything but the toddler age -- it only has one alpha group so trying to fix it might have made the issue worse and I really couldn't be bothered.

I, also, hate April Fool's Day, so this was especially nice to see on my reading page! And that Juice mesh was always one of my favorite hairs in theory but I hated its original textures. Yours are lovely! Thanks for rescuing all of these.

I love all your retextures, but I'm especially happy to see the Sunair hair. I had downloaded a version of it awhile back and though that if I ever got around to it, I would try to teach myself what was necessary to remove the long scarf pieces. I'm so happy to see that someone else (with way more talents than myself) had that same idea.

Thank you so much for these Sunair hairs! They are cute, all-ages and even low-poly - what more could one want?
