Sims 4 Hair CC CAS

Custom Content in The Sims 4 is great for giving your Sims household your own style. If you’re feeling that your male-presenting Sims need a little extra zhuzh, here’s a list of the best male hair CC you can use.

The Sims 4 lets players imagine their characters in any shape or form, which is perfect for those who love using Custom Content. While EA already offers a wide range of customization options, there are hundreds of creators that share their work for free for players to use in their own games.

Hair CC is the most popular kind of Custom Content that simmers search for, but while there are a ton of options for female-presenting Sims, sometimes it’s hard to find a good set for male frames.

If you’re tired of looking around for male hair in The Sims 4, we’ve got you covered.
