I don’t know about you, but hair cc is one of the first things that I download when it comes to a new sims game or after I clean out my cc folder. Custom hair is pretty important for making gorgeous sims (in my opinion🤷‍♀️)

And if for some weird reason, I was only allowed a limited number of cc hair in my sims 4 game, these are the ones I would absolutely HAVE to have.

This list of sims 4 hair cc includes a little bit of everything so that if I wanted to, I could create any type of sim in CAS.

All of the hairstyles are maxis match (or blend well with the game) and free to download. There’s also a wide range of diverse hair types since I like to create all ethnicities of sims in my gameplay.

BTW, if you’re looking for even MORE sims 4 hair downloads, you’ll want to check out these lists as well:

Here’s the best sims 4 hair cc.

Best Sims 4 CC Hair

1. Sims 4 Messy Bun Hair by Miiko

I use this messy updo ALL. THE. TIME. It’s super versatile and can look chic with an everyday outfit or perfect with pajamas.

My favorite thing about this hair is all the loose curly strands. So cute!

The hair comes in 18 maxis match swatches, but also includes 3 bonus colors: white, pastel purple, & pastel pink.

2. Sims 4 Low Puff Hair CC by greenllamas

This is another up-do that I really love, except this time the hair is in a low puff bun and the hair texture is different.

Greenllamas makes some of my absolute favorite sims 4 hair cc as you’ll see from this list!

The Ciara hair comes in 24 maxis match swatches and is base-game compatible.

3. Sims 4 Long Kids Hair CC by naevys-sims

This cc kids hair is absolutely STUNNING! It’s one of my personal favorites.

It actually comes with a pack of three kids hair conversions, so when downloading, you don’t only get this one, but two other custom hairs.

Each of the hairstyles comes in 18 maxis match swatches and doesn’t require the original meshes.

4. Sims 4 Male Hair CC by okruee

We’ve talked about it again and again, but male sims don’t get as much love when it comes to custom content.

Okruee really makes up for that with SO MANY incredible male cc hairstyles.

This is one of my favorites. It’s wavy and disheveled, making any man look more attractive.

It comes in all 24 maxis match colors and is base-game compatible.

5. Sims 4 CC Child Hair Conversion by an0nymousghost

sims 4 child cc hair

Is this not the most ADORABLE kids hairstyle? I absolutely love it.

This is another kids hair conversion from hair made by aharris00britney. And to be honest, I think it looks even better on the kids. It has that playful, young look that’s PERFECT for child sims.

And not only do you get the hair, but you get the cute clips as a hair accessory. Those can be found in the hats category in CAS.

This cc hair is actually a part of an entire cc pack, wild ones. While I highly recommend downloading the entire cc pack because it’s amazing, you can download this hair individually from the item index.

And you can also download a version of this hair in that cc pack without the bangs for a chic top bun.

EA has a bad history of excluding diversity from their games (especially if you don’t include expansion packs or kits.)
